Here are some ideas of devices you can plug in to your Currant Smart Outlet:

Energy Hogs: Many devices still use idle energy (also known as vampire energy or standby power) even when they're off. Plug these devices into Currant and set schedules to power them off completely when they're not in use:

  • Cable box
  • TV
  • Game console
  • Printer
  • Monitor
  • Toaster oven

Controllable Devices: One of the best features of a smart plug is the ability to control anything you plug into it from your app or a voice assistant like Google Home or Amazon Alexa. Try these ideas:

  • Lights or lamps
  • Air conditioner
  • Fan
  • Coffee maker

Large Appliances: Sometimes you just want to know how much energy different devices in your home use, even though you don't want to turn them off. Currant can handle anything you can plug into a 15 amp outlet, so try these:

  • Refrigerator
  • Freezer
  • Washing machine
  • Electric vehicle charger

Forgettable Devices: Currant can shut off power to devices that you might forget to turn off, or that you don't want to be turned on by accident. Lock individual outlets or set a usage limit rule to disable devices after a set period of time.

  • Iron
  • Curling iron
  • Power tool
