Christmas tree with classic fairy lights and smart plug: This is my favourite

Innr versus Osram and Philips Hue

For many of you, the Christmas tree should already be in your living room. Here, it is traditionally decorated on the fourth Advent and then delights us until January. If you use traditional lighting technology instead of the smart Twinkly fairy lights, you can bring a little more comfort into your home in combination with a smart plug. Time control, voice control or even switching by remote control and app are no longer a problem.

There are three products worth mentioning in the Hue environment: the Philips Hue Smart Plug, which only entered the market this year, is the most expensive candidate at around 25 to 30 euros, but is also the only one that allows official HomeKit compatibility via the Hue Bridge.

The Osram Smart Plug, now also known as the Ledvance Smart Plug, has been the most widely sold product in recent years. In recent weeks it has not been available at such a low price. Additionally, its design is also a clear setback.

How the Innr Smart Plug upgrades the Christmas tree

This is particularly noticeable when comparing it to the Innr Smart Plug SP120. The Dutch company’s smart plug comes with the most compact dimensions and a most stylish design. At the same time, you don't have to splash out because the double pack is ususally available at low prices.

At this point, my decision is clear: the Innr plug is my favourite for fairy lights and other indoor applications. In conclusion, I have a question for you: what kind of technology do you apply on your Christmas tree?
