What more is there to say about how wonderfully versatile smart dimmers and outlets are? If you're in the market for smart outlets, you probably already know that you can pair them with SmartThings to turn lights on and off, adjust a lamp's brightness, or control other appliances. Remotec offers a couple such smart outlets.

The Remotec Technology Plug-In Dimmer (ZDS-100) is a pluggable Z-wave module that has an outlet for dimmable lamps and an always-on outlet for standard control. This handy dimmer is for use with incandescent lights only.
