The BG Electrical 822/HC is a two-gang smart switched socket designed for use in the UK. It has a white color and rounded edges for a modern and sleek appearance. The socket is rated for a maximum current of 13A and is suitable for use with a variety of appliances and devices.
The "smart" feature of this socket allows it to be controlled remotely using a smartphone or voice assistant, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. This can be done using a compatible smart home hub or app, which allows you to turn the socket on or off, set schedules or timers, and monitor energy usage.
The socket is single pole, which means it is switched on and off by one switch. It is also moulded, which means it has a seamless construction and is less likely to break or crack.
Overall, the BG Electrical 822/HC is a high-quality and versatile smart switched socket that can help you control your home's energy usage and make your daily life more convenient.
Part of the BG Smart! range, the 822/HC is controllable and schedulable by user via touch, voice command of the BG App (downloadable from the App Store or Google Play). It has a countdown function and random security options, and is also compatible with the Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Siri Shortcuts and IFTTT to fully integrate with your smart home. There’s no hub unit or subscriptions and runs off a home 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network lightly enough that it won’t overload the system.
Also as part of the white moulded round-edge range, the 822/HC is constructed to a modern standard design to be used with a regular 3 pin UK plug, and so is a great value option for a huge variety of domestic and commercial installations. As a single-pole switched socket it functions as a simple on/off for the appliance plugged in.
The 822/HC is simple to install; supplied with fixing screws, installation instructions and angled colour-coded terminals with captive screws, retrofitting into an existing backbox (minimum depth 25mm) is made easy. To allow for an even safer, high-integrity protective connection, the socket is twin earth fitted to allow a double earth facility.
