Optiplug – Intelligent Socket

SKU: OPTI-PLUG Categories: , ,


Optiplug is the intelligent socket that switches appliances on when there is enough surplus power to run them for free and off when there’s not. Optiplug learns how much electricity is used by the appliances plugged into it and compares this to how much surplus power there is.

Optiplug needs to receive data from a Wattson Solar Plus, Energeno Online Monitoring Pack or an Optimmersion with a transmitter built-in (e.g. Optimmersion, Optimmersion Wireless or Optismart Hot Water).

Optiplug installation is so simple that no site visit is required so it can be sent to customers by post, making it an ideal low-cost upgrade for any of the 15,000+ Wattson owners with Solar PV.
