Amazon on Wednesday (16 September) launched its smart plug in India for just Rs 1,999 that works with Alexa and helps customers instantly add voice control to their existing range of appliances.
To set it up, plug it into an electrical socket and use the Alexa app.
Once connected, customers can ask Alexa on any Echo, Fire TV or Alexa built-in device or the Alexa app to turn on/off the power.
It works with appliances such as lamps, table fans, electric kettle, room coolers, televisions, mobile chargers, air-purifiers, sound bars etc.
“Customers in India are increasingly experimenting with home automation and we want them to have simple yet affordable solutions to make their existing appliances smart using Alexa,” said Parag Gupta, Head of Amazon Devices, India.
“With Amazon Smart Plug, customers can add smart voice control to any appliance without the need to upgrade it”.
The Smart Plus comes with 3-pin Indian socket design, 6A power rating and a state retention feature.
The state retention feature ensures that appliances go back to their last state (on/off) in case of power outage and resumption.
“Amazon Smart Plug is available for Rs 999 when purchased as part of the bundle with Echo Dot,” the company said.
