On/Off

  1. Turn your fan off from your bed when you get too cold.
  2. When reading at night. Turn your lights off from your phone when you’re ready to sleep.
  3. Keep your bedroom lights on a Zuli Smartplug so you can turn on the lights if you hear something in the middle of the night.
  4. Keep your dangerous appliances on Zuli Smartplugs so they all shut off any potential electrical current as you walk from room to room. Baby-proofing.

Zuli Presence
