I received a Safer Socket pack for this review. I was not financially compensated for this post. My opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
is an important matter all year around, but even more so during the holidays when lots of people travel and leave their homes for the holidays. This is when you want to make sure your home and belongings are as well-protected as possible and house fire is probably very high on my list of things to worry about when I leave my home for extended periods of time and I tend to unplug all the electrics when I know I am not going to be home.
A few weeks ago I was introduced to a very interesting product called
What is Safer Socket?
The unit is thicker than a conventional socket, but blends really well with any current set up you have. The Safer Socket features a patent pending technology within the device that prevents electrical outlets and appliances plugged into them from overheating. The device requires no special wiring or professional installation. Actually, it is really easy to use as all you need to do is plug it into your current sockets and once engaged, the light on the Safer Socket will turn green letting you know your unit is all set and ready to do its job.
Once installed, Saferwill constantly monitor the temperature of the plug with its five tiny thermostats contained inside the unit. It will automatically shut off the plugged-in appliance if it senses an unsafe rise in temperature that could lead to an electrical fire….The whole concept is really interesting and certainly brings peace of mind, not only during the holidays, but all year around.
There is a green light that comes up once you have installed your Safer Socket and the unit is designed to show a red light in the case that there is some overheating and the appliance on the socket has been shut off…once this happens, you would have to wait 10 minutes to reset your unit.
Thankfully I have not had this happen to me, but it certainly makes me feel better knowing that this technology is available.
The units are made with a high quality material and the prongs used on them are also of great quality so you are really getting a sturdy, quality product.
The units are designed to be used on any indoors standard grounded outlet (3 prongs). So far, the units are only available in white and have a retail price of $19.99 each or buy 3 for $59.99 and get one free.
