    The difference is in the need. A washer woman has a need to wash clothes efficiently and effectively.

    I have zero need to turn sockets on or off. Smart sockets are a solution to a problem I just don't have.

    Ahhh Dr B.....but do you solutions to problems you DO have ?

    And I have seen many dedicated non rcd ccts feeding large freezers and fridges...but usually in garages.
    I also have one in my house, by me, in kitchen..in case of trip whilst we are away.

    You could use a relay to turn on a warning light (obviously on a different circuit) when the fridge power goes off. The grid style neons (17x30mm) are quite noticeable.

    Best option I think is a simple plug in emergency torch, it both alerts of power cut, and if dark shows way to torch so you can use it to find the fault, I got cheap ones from Lidi, it has black tape over the motion sensor. KISS.
