The connected home is becoming a more pervasive topic, so products that allow for an easier entrance to the idea like the Samsung 'SmartThings' Smart Plugs are coming about. Designed to allow any outlet to instantly become a smart one, the device works by connecting devices plugged in to the Internet and your smartphone. Aside from offering advanced control over power, the device will also let you know if you've left it on when you aren't home.

Samsung 'SmartThings' Smart Plugs also act as a ZigBee repeater to extend the existing range of other smart devices in the house. As the smart home becomes commonplace, it's likely we'll see more devices that make literally anything in the home smarter like these outlet adapters.
