Smart Plug

Controlling Energy Consumption and Costs from Anywhere

Smart Plug

With Jabil smart plug energy monitoring and control systems, energy suppliers and meter companies, appliance manufacturers, and home automation and security providers can let their consumers:

  • Monitor and control energy consumption and costs
  • Schedule when devices turn on and off and check status from anywhere in the world
  • Connect to device applications that are inside a plug, a monitored device’s enclosure, or a wall outlet
  • Power any Zigbee Smart Energy 1.0 compliant device to turn a user’s generic wireless router into a Zigbee gateway

Small-form-factor electronics such as smart plugs make up an increasing percentage of the Internet of things (IoT). And with consumer devices, the pressure to bring a product — hopefully, the next must-have gadget — to market rapidly is enormous. The supply chain, from material management through shipping, must perform flawlessly to return profits from high-volume items selling at ever-falling prices.
