Imagine always having a frient keeping an eye on your electrical appliances and helping you control them. Someone who turns on your electrical appliances when you need them and turns them off when you’re not using them. A frient who wants your everyday life to be greener and paves the way for you.

Now that’s a frient!

Become energy-aware

The friently Smart Cable is an electricity consumption tracker and a remote switch. Connect your frient to the cord of your electric radiator, fan, or another electrical appliance, and it’s ready to monitor the consumption. It also lets you turn the appliance on and off remotely.

Well built unit
Gives lots of parameters and acts as a repeater, too. Got a couple of them and I must say, super impressed. It does not feel cheap, the case is well secured with 4 screws so no danger to get opened if bumped or dropped, plenty of space inside for cables. I use it with Homey and it acts as a zigbee repeater, too. Parameters it gives: Instant wattage, voltage and amps plus total power consumed in KW.
Great design
I chose it for the 16A rating. Despite being a 13A device my cooker trips most energy monitoring smart devices I've tried. The frient can handle 1.5mm 3 core cable no problem and switch and report consumption for my cooker without blinking. Inside the device is pretty simple but offers a really solid connection to the cable, I'm confident with the grip on the chunky cables.
