Nowadays, the environmental problems such as global warming and climate changing are getting worse and worse.
Every country is dedicating to find alternative energy to decrease the carbon emission from electricity generation.
As the result, effectively utilizing the energy becomes an issue that each person or nation should pay attention to.

However, the energy is usually consumed without awareness in life which is hard to be noticed.
Therefore, it is not easy to save energy in real life.
So, we try to combine IoT and sockets to make people know more clearly about the usage, safety and the electricity of the electric appliances.
