PureGear's PureSwitch has a circular design that's both aesthetically pleasing and practical. The smart plug design is not too large and shouldn't block a wall outlet's second plug.

The PureSwitch app organizes outlets and devices by home and room. If your HomeKit home is not already detected by the PureSwitch app, you can add it easily.

Rules within the PureSwitch app control the scenes for each powered accessory. Rules can be based on time of day or the phone's location. Rules must be added first before scenes can be created.
