First off this smart plug is very easy to setup. You are able to control any outlet into a connected and smart outlet. There are so many things that you can control with this smart plug. You can control lighting in your home, any appliances in your home, and so much more with just your smart phone! I have used it for a lamp in my sons room that turns on the lamp at a set time in the morning to help wake him up and also to turn off the lamp at a set time. I have also recently used it to have the Christmas tree lights come on and turn off at a set time. You download an app that connects to the smart plug and then control any electronic that is plugged into the smart plug.
