Broadlink is a China based manufacturer of smart home products which commercializes environment sensors, light switches, sockets, home alarms kit and universal remotes, fully controllable through WiFi and mobile network using the proprietary e-Control app. Oddly, there is no videosurveillance camera, which to be honest makes no sense at all since it would nicely fill the Broadlink Smart Home portfolio.
The product, BroadLink SP Mini 3 (SPM3) WiFi Socket, is a nice white box, made of sturdy premium plastic, which once plugged into wall socket makes any appliance controllable through WiFi: switch on, switch off, set on/off timer through Broadlink e-Control app.
A pulsing soft blue light shows the status of the device (on or off) and houses the one and only button, used to set up the device or switch it on and off manually.
Setup process is really straightforward: open the e-Control app, tap on “add device”, long press the only button on the SPM3 and the app will take care of the WiFi activation and settings. The SPM3 name and image can be customized to reflect the appliance plugged in (e.g.: dishwasher, lamp, TV, etc)
Use cases are quite unlimited and open up to some really interesting possibilities, making virtually any pluggable device “smart” and controllable through WiFi or mobile network as well as enablinginteractions between multiple smart home objects: plug in a light and set it up to be switched on as soon as you open the door, interacting with door sensor; or start the washing machine remotely to minimize energy bill; or schedule TV and lights to shut down at 01:00 am while you already are asleep.
