    Plug in modules that 'point down'

    I want to step up my move away from Insteon bits and pieces. I bought some Tuya modules, when I got my new HomeTroller, but one of the nicest things about the Insteon lamp and appliance modules, for me, is that the receptacle winds up pointing downward. Great for stuff that's behind furniture, and just generally less intrusive looking. I've been Googling. I see the Leviton modules, they face down. Also Eaton. Most others seem to be facing forward. Anyone care to suggest a favorite? Great thing about the Tuyas, they are cheap, but I have several places they just won't work. Thanks.

    I have a few z-wave lamp and appliance modules--GE, Nutone and Inovelli--that all have receptacles on the sides. Better than on the front for locating behind furniture. Not aware of others than you've identified that face downward.

      I use these Jasco outlets for that purpose: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      They seem to be out of stock at the moment on Amazon, but then I found these which would serve a similar purpose: https://www.amazon.com/GE-Enbrighten...ls%2C89&sr=1-6

          I have 1 foot extensions with a flat swivel plug I use when I need to get stuff hidden/flat.
          Here's an example:

            Look for the Leviton on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...e?ie=UTF8&th=1
            Reasonably priced and they work really well. I have four of them. Don't go just for 'cheap.' In the long run, it isn't worth the aggravation.

              "Embrighten" is Jasco's new/current product line name. I have been replacing old/failed HomeSeer switches or dimmers with the new Embrighten models, and they work great. I don't know why the wall plugs are out of stock, but my SWAG is that the demand for Z-Wave wall plugs is drying up, since they cost significantly more than a cheap, generic WiFi plug.

                Update: I received three Leviton Z Wave modules and just finished installing them. They work fine. It is annoying that on the home screen, the module has a button you have to click called "controls" before you get to on and off controls. Sigh. This happened initially with the Aeotec wall switch I tried too, but it then corrected itself. Doesn't look like the Leviton modules are going to.
