Quirky Outlink

Admittedly, we’re a little blind to our electricity usage. We typically plug things in and round down our estimated cost of running said device to “negligible” since we don’t really know better. Quirky’s Outlink aims to help educate us to our usage, at least for our non-appliance devices. Outlink features one smart outlet (the top one) and one traditional outlet to track energy consumption, turn on and off at the click of a button on Wink’s app, and set up schedules to give greater control over what’s on and when. Granted, it’s just one drop out of the sea of outlets nestled in walls around your home and requires a Wink Relay or Hub to function, but it’s a start.
