Sometimes you may think about is it possible to switch on or off an electrical appliance at your home remotely or to boil tea in your electric tea heater without coming home. Even though everything starts to be connected and managed over the internet these days, is it possible to do that for your old electrical devices. If your electrical outlet is smart then why not. In this post, we will examine the Orvibo S20 intelligent socket product from our intelligent house series.
Box Content and Appearance
Only the device itself and a simple operating manual are displayed in the device box. Installing this device with this manual is sometimes difficult. For this reason, I have created this guide which is more descriptive for you.
The device has a pretty plain appearance from the front
In the bottom view, it is said that the socket outlet is grounded;
In side view, you can see that the device is very thin and roundy style.
After seeing the device with the basic lines, let’s go to the installation of the device.
When you want to install it in the way described in the user manual, sometimes you can’t succeed, so I will talk about the installation steps in detail.
