…or tablet or PC or any other Bluetooth-enabled device that supports A2DP. Developed by ZMote, the Smart Cord is a 3-f00t long extension cord with an on-and-off switch that is activated via an app or audio file, both of which are free. All you have to do is insert the Smart Cord in between any device – maybe even several devices plugged into a power strip – and the outlet, and you can cut power to it remotely, up to 30 feet away.

ZMote will soon release a variety of related products, such as a separate switch, a dimmable switch, as well as a lamp and upright lights. ZMote is going to make home automation – and pranks – a lot easier and cheaper.

They say the Smart Cord will go on sale later this month for $40 (USD). I hope by that time they’ve worked on their website – which looks sort of like something out of 1994.
