Device Came properly as per their secure packaging. But I think was opened by the customs office for a security check and we cannot really do anything for that. Overall packaging is fine and I am satisfied but still feel that there is some room to make it more attractive. I also received a letter from Schurter to address as RoadTester.
Currently, we have always seen that there are many wires and extension boards lying around the table which is not smart enough. Also, those devices will not tell the details about the various data which leads us to opt for the smart connector for the same I reviewed the Schurter DT31 Smart connector which has the option to monitor the Current, Voltage, Energy and Power consumption remotely and can control the state of the appliances which are "On" & "Off" only. This monitoring and control device is useful in many cases and also, and it will help us to make our old stuff smarter with lower cost and fewer modifications and less space required which is why this is amazing.

After Careful use and reviewing it with details, I came across that the design is good and clean. Device setup is also very easy and straightforward. Also, it works with Wi-Fi only to send data to the cloud and works with setup is only done with Bluetooth which is a bit strange.
Also, need to consider that the dashboard is not properly designed or configured for DT31 instead they use common options for all other available devices.
The overall device is good to go for remote monitoring and wireless control. It meets its technical claims but still, there are few areas of improvement. It is good for monitoring and logging electrical parameters with 1 minute of data logging interval. The good point is it is very straightforward to make old-gen devices smart with just one smart connector.
