As we know a ‘Smart Plug‘ can connect normal appliances or devices to the Internet via a breakthrough called IoT (Internet of Things). The Plug communicates with the Pixel IoT Platform in the cloud via a 4G LTE mobile network. All the basic features like scheduling and conditional alerts for different use cases are available over the top.
The plug also has Energy Monitoring enabled, where consolidated/real-time data of the appliance/unit connected can be seen on the application/IoT Web Platform.

Application Use Cases
You can use Pixel LTE Smart Plug-in for agriculture, industry, storage, smart city, and other places. It can help control crops by controlling the irrigation system and monitoring warehouses for temperature and humidity. Users can remotely monitor and control in real-time conditions in their homes, office, or workplace.
4G LTE has immense potential to be a boom for the Energy sector in Industries. A next-generation 4G LTE smart metering solution for the residential sector provides broad territory coverage, low latency, and network longevity, using the fastest 4G LTE technology available today.
- 4G LTE communication is particularly useful for hard-to-reach locations or territories or for opt-in scenarios.
- Due to the low latency of the 4G LTE network, a new solution is also a good option for utilizing smart meters as grid sensors to monitor distribution system conditions.
