3Rings Plug

  • What does it do?:

    Monitors routine use of electrical devices and alerts any change.

  • What’s the problem?:

    Provides reassurance that a person living alone is following aspects of their daily routine by tracking the use of an electrical item through a plug. Some concern at leaving sockets switched on.

  • What our testers liked:

    Liked that it did not require a smartphone or internet, that texts could by received by any phone.

    Liked the unobtrusive nature of the monitoring.

  • What our testers disliked:

    Initial thoughts: Concerns over size (too bulky) poor phone connection missing the alert, cost -  high initial cost and ongoing subscription (subscription caused most concern) Would the PWD switch it off at the socket.

  • What is interesting:
  • The testers expressed unease at committing to monthy subscription.
  • What our testers said:

    Initial impressions: This offers welcome reassurance but some aspects i.e. monthly subscription, and leaving sockets switched on created unease.
