QUESTION

Hey! How would this be different from a simple surge protector? I have a ton of those in my apartment. It would be great to not have those wires everywhere.

Please read the description. Surge protector is not the only one,but one of the features of smart power outlet. Smart power outlet will also equipped with a fire detecting sensor. When a fire is detected, the power will be cut off,an alarm will be triggered informing the user that something wrong is happened.

Dude , what if the socket doesn’t go on fire but the appliance does , how will it detect fire then ?? The fire problem has almost nothing to do with the socket but the appliance !

Good point. We can make the sensor extendable to you can place the sensor near the appliance.

Are gas sensors expensive or require a lot of room to install? If you’re going to install a sensor for detecting if the appliance is on fire instead of just the outlet, maybe throw in a gas sensor as well, this 3-in-1 outlet would have some commercial appeal for sure. Great project idea!

Syed Shayon Khaled I was looking over the project description and didn’t see a list of tasks or anything. If I wanted to join and help I don’t see what things I could contribute to. Maybe keep updating the project about section to reflect what you’ve done so far and what specific tasks you’re currently working on or need help accomplishing.

The main focus of this project should be toh stabalise the power , u can’t just install sensors in every appliance u connect, that’d actaully not possible , max u could do is to stavalise power ,that’s the only thing to go to a longer distance than the other alternatives
