The Currant Bluetooth Smart Outlet is a product that we initially designed and built to do simple monitoring of energy usage.
Our early testers and adopters liked the design but wanted the energy savings to be automatic, so we developed the Currant WiFi Smart Outlet, an entirely new product that is connected to the cloud and facilitates interaction through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
The primary difference between the Currant Bluetooth Smart Outlet and Currant WiFi Smart Outlet is WiFi capability.
Only the Currant WiFi Smart Outlet may be controlled and monitored through the Currant App when you are outside of the Currant’s bluetooth range. However, if a Currant Bluetooth Smart Outlet is within Bluetooth range of a Currant Bluetooth Smart Outlet, you will have the same level of features and functionality with Currant through the Currant App.
You will not, however, be able to use the Currant Bluetooth Smart Outlet with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
