Default Smart plugs?

Do these things only work within a certain range of your home router or can you connect to them via an internet connection x miles away?

Mother is off to hospital to have her clunge removed and will be in my place recuperating for a few weeks. Be buggered if I'm driving to her place twice every night to turn shit on and off.

Just turn everything off apart from the fridge and freezer like normal

f*** sake. Didn't realise smart plugs had already been invented. That was the big idea I was intending to one day execute.

Burglars and shit?

She wants her lights turned on and off at random intervals. Dodgy time of year, plenty of houses knocked over by subhuman scum in the run-up to Christmas

Bit late for me with that advice...I turned the house leccy off when we went for a family holiday to confuse any burglars. Forgot about the fridge freezer, bloody stank after being off for a month.

If there's a smartphone app for them, usually means you can control them from anywhere.

Or would plug timers on different schedules, so lights on in diff rooms at diff times, be easier?

Or move into hers and let her stay at yours.

I think that would be best for poop. Just plug a few in and don't have to think about it .

Poop - You could get a house sitter for a bit maybe too?
