Wherever you go your life is under control with Teckin’s Smart Wall Sockets!
I’ve about had it with Teckin’s smart products simplifying my life. From their smart mini plugs to smart lightbulbs, and now these smart wall sockets. Being able to voice control everyday devices and appliances that are plugged into the Teckin Smart Wall Socket is making me far too lazy with the ability to say, “Alexa, turn on space heater” or “Okay Google, turn off living room lamp”.
Gone are the days when I have to get off the couch to turn on the fan that is seriously 8 feet above my head. Ridiculous! What’s next? Will Teckin build mind-reading smart devices that will literally know exactly what I want? What’s worse is if I don’t even want to mutter a word I can pick up my phone, open up the free Smart Life app, and with a few clicks manage all the devices plugged into the Teckin Smart Wall Socket.
And don’t get me started on the ability to set schedules to do things like turn on my coffee pot before I even get out of bed or automatically turn off the house lights at night so we don’t waste money on the electric bill. So frustrating! 😜
Still not convinced you’d like the convenience of smart wall sockets in your life? Read on to learn more about Teckin’s Smart Wall Socket.
Features Of Teckin Smart Wi-Fi Wall Sockets
Smart wall sockets work just like standard wall sockets but with some clear-cut improvements. Providing the addition of app control, voice control, and the ability to set schedules make choosing a Teckin Smart Wall Socket an easy decision.
Teckin Smart Wall Socket Voice Control:
One of the coolest ways to control your plugged in devices is with your voice. Both Google Assistant and Alexa will allow you to control these devices with a quick command. Name the different outlets and USB port in the smart wall sockets something easy to remember in the Smart Life app (desk fan, office lamp, phone charger, etc). Once the Google Home and Alexa apps recognize the devices you can easily call them by name for full control.
Teckin Smart Wall Socket App Control:
Rather not holler at Alexa from across the room to turn on the fan? Nevertheless lazy enough to not want to get up? We judge not, and have all been there. Go ahead and open your Smart Life app to control your appliance plugged into your Smart Wall Socket. You can also control those appliances remotely through the app whether at home, at work, or camping by a lake.
Teckin Smart Wall Socket Schedules & Timers:
Last but certainly not least, you can set timers and schedules to control the appliances and devices plugged into your Teckin Smart Wall Socket. Have your space heater turn on 20 minutes before your morning alarm. And schedule it to turn off at a set time just in case you’re in a rush a forgot to manually switch it off. Or have your coffee pot start brewing and give yourself some extra incentive to get the day started. Don’t want to come home to a dark house after work? Have your living room lamp turn on at sunset.

Requiring a neutral wire, installing is like that of any standard wall socket connecting live, load, and neutral wires. The Teckin SR-40 Smart Wall Socket is for single-pole use only and will not work in 3-way configurations. The included user guide will walk you through installation with simple steps and illustrations.
Before installing you will first need to download the Smart Life app available free for both Android and iOS. Like the majority of smart devices, the Teckin Smart Wall Socket will only connect to your 2.4GHz wireless network.
Step 1). Download the Smart Life app for both Android and iOS, or scan the QR code including with the user guide.

Final Verdict On Teckin Smart Wall Sockets
If you’re ready to create a more efficient home than smart sockets are a good way to get started. Unlike smart plugs (which I love by the way) the wifi connectivity is built right into the socket. And it looks just like a regular outlet! Not an outlet that has a smart plug that you then plug your appliance or devices into. 😜
