Very few people would disagree that it is a good idea to save energy, either for environmental or economic reasons. The point of the smart socket is to inform the owner of the amount of consumed energy and gives the opportunity to easily control their energy consumption and thereby to save energy while sustaining or even increasing their comfort of living. Only few sockets needs to be installed since information is send through the electricity cables.
