In/Out Socket / socket

Unplugging unused appliances is therefore a good habit to have in our daily lives. However, if plugs are unplugged frequently and dust is allowed to accumulate within the socket, it would lead to bad electrical connections and create a fire hazard.The In-Out Socket uses a simple and intuitive action to cut power, save energy, and at the same time eliminate the risks and damages caused by unplugging. It would also prevent dust from building up in an unused socket.As time passes, the lit area around the socket will turn from blue to red. The red light is used to indicate that an appliance has been plugged in for an extended period of time.
