Popular energy-saving sockets such as metering sockets, timing sockets and remote control sockets can solve some practical problems, but they all have various defects. Metering socket can intuitively reflect the power, current, voltage and other information of electrical appliances on the socket. It can only let users know the power consumption of electrical appliances. Users with certain expertise are required to analyze whether the electrical appliances are normal according to the measurement results. Only in this way can abnormal electrical appliances be found in time and abnormal power consumption be avoided. Timing socket can control the electrical appliances working in a specific period of time, to a certain extent, reducing the waste of energy in idle period, but the actual power consumption period is not fixed, once the situation changes, it needs to be re-set, which is inconvenient to use. The remote control socket needs special remote controller, which is expensive and difficult to be accepted by users. In addition, these sockets can not simultaneously have comprehensive power grid parameter measurement and load control functions, can not achieve security protection for electrical appliances, and can not avoid long-term overload caused by power safety accidents.
Intelligent sockets are new electrical products. There are no clear standards and definitions in our country so far. Because of the development of technology and user awareness, there are few products on the market at present.
