Twin-Star International has been expanded its electrical products assortment and, now, is adding the Safer Socket, a patent pending device that prevents electrical outlets and appliances plugged into the outlets from overheating, the company announced. The Safer Socket plugs into any existing outlet and, doesn’t require special wiring or professional installation.
Once the device is in place, users can plug any electrical appliance into the Safer Socket. The device then monitors the temperature of the plug using five mini thermostats housed inside the unit. It automatically shuts off the plugged-in appliance if it detects temperature increase that could lead to an electrical fire.
LED lights glow green when the Safer Socket is plugged in and energized. A red light appears when overheating has taken place and an electrical appliance has been shut off.
Users can plug Safer Socket into any standard indoor, grounded outlet. It has launched on safersocket.com at a $19.99 price.
