The PlugHub Energy is the first home automation device to combine the features of a smart home hub, smart plug, and energy monitor into a single product, giving consumers the ability to start a smart home with just one device. The PlugHub Energy offers unparalleled value by turning lamps and other standard appliances into smart products, while enabling control of Z-Wave devices such as smart locks, thermostats, sensors, and more. It will also offer control of Wi-Fi devices through integration with Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa, which are coming soon.
“The PlugHub Energy furthers our effort to make home automation more accessible to everyone,” said Mark Samuel, CEO of Ezlo Innovation. “I’ve heard countless stories of people buying smart plugs only to realize that they need something to control them with. We’ve solved that problem with a literal plug-and-play hub at a price point far below what customers would have to pay for a separate smart plug and control hub.”
The PlugHub Energy is now available for pre-order in the US market, with alternate configurations for other regions coming in 2020. The hub is controlled by the Vera mobile app, available for both iOS and Android devices, and allows users to view the energy consumption of any device plugged into the PlugHub Energy, as well as the energy used by other Z-Wave metered class devices in their home.
This announcement follows Ezlo Innovation’s launch of the Atom smart home hub, as well as the acquisitions of Centralite Systems, Vera Control, and Fortrezz. To learn more, please visit https://getvera.com/products/ezlo-plughub-energy.
