ConnectSense has a new way for people to make their devices smart. Its Smart Plug lets you connect two items, includes a USB charging port, and fits over an existing wall outlet.

Priced at $40, the device has two separate outlets, each of which can be controlled on its own and set up through the ConnectSense iOS and Android app. You don't need a hub — the Smart Outlet works over Wi-Fi — and you can also control items plugged into the outlet using your voice by speaking with Amazon Alexa, Siri (through Apple HomeKit), and Google Assistant.

For people looking to have more control over their devices, especially those monitoring their electricity bills, the ConnectSense outlet also lets you monitor energy usage for devices plugged into the product. You can also see how long something has been plugged into the outlet and can customize how you want to run devices based on this information. Devices can be powered down, for example, while someone is at work.

The 2.4 amp USB charging port can juice up devices, including smartphones and tablets.

"We are committed to evolving our product offerings to create an easy-to-use, seamless way for people to control better and monitor their homes," said Adam Justice, Founder of ConnectSense. "In our continued effort to meet our customer's demands, we've added a more robust voice control offerings with the Smart Outlet and are excited to expand the IoT product landscape to Android users."

The Smart Outlet can be ordered now from ConnectSense's website and on Amazon.
