LivingPlug's Inlet promises to keep power vampires at bay

Philip Michaels | June 19, 2014
The electrical block promises energy conservation benefits.

LivingPlug also thinks its Inlet offering can bring an aesthetic improvement to the humble electrical outlet. The base unit ships with a faceplate, which you can use to either make the outlet blend in with the rest of the wall or stand out with an eye-catching design. LivingPlug offers a gallery of designs for the Inlet's faceplate that look to help you put your own distinctive stamp on your room's decor. The company also offers more traditional choices like a walnut finish, aimed at helping the outlet blend into the background.

The Inlet costs $25. LivingPlug sells the walnut finish version of the outlet for $30. The company is taking preorders now.

It's not the most technologically sophisticated solution for the connected home true believer. But LivingPlug's Inlet does look to be a promising low-cost option for reducing the amount of power you waste on appliances that aren't even running.
