I would love to just get another one of these outlets, however it is only rated for a max load of 300w, and the projector I want to use it with is rated up to 380w. Do you think that would be OK? Is anyone using this outlet with loads > 300 watts?
I see there are some other devices, like the Aeon Labs smart switch 6 that apparently goes up to 1500 watts. But I am not sure if it is as reliable (no network dropouts etc) and if indeed I can turn off its colored light using just SmartThings and nothing else.
What smart outlets are you using that you love and can recommend? Thanks!
As a side note, in my case I will never use this outlet for power on/off - it will always be in the On position. But the main thing I want it for is to be able to monitor the energy usage (and to detect when its been left on too long).
I don’t recommend the ZEN07 that @ritchierich mentioned because it’s only 13 amp and I have some and they constantly stop working and have to be reset by manually unplugging them and then plugging them back in.
The ZEN06 has a max load of 15 amp 1800 watt and it’s been really reliable for me.
The Aeon Labs DSC06106-ZWUS that @eibyer mentioned is actually my favorite, but you can’t buy them anymore…
Thanks guys. I wound up going with the SmartThings smart outlet because I have two others that have been working flawlessly. Inside the instruction manual it says 12A, which as I understand it is far greater capacity than the 380w that my device uses.
