Areas of use

The Home Control Outlet (HCO) is the smart outlet which allows you to control each output separately. The HCO replaces your existing socket cover. HCO is the Patented, CE and NEMKO approved power socket for DIY installation. The HCO has a built-in temperature sensor and monitors the room temperature. Use the in-built temperature sensor to create a thermostat and control a heater.
