If you’re always in a rush like me then you need this Belkin WeMo Switch, €37.99 Harvey Norman.
It’s a socket that you plug your appliances into and then you can turn them on and off from your smartphone. I’ve been using mine with my hair curling iron; I’m forever running out the door in the morning and forgetting to plug it out.
The WeMo app on my phone tells me if I left it on and lets me switch it off remotely from my iPhone.
You can also use it for lamps, electric blankets etc.
