Are there any good smart Power Strips available?

I’ve been searching online for a Power Strip with specific features, but I haven’t found one that meets all my needs yet:

  • I need at least 4 outlets (for 2 Macs and 2 Monitors).
  • It should have at least 1 USB-C port that can charge at 15W or more (for an iPad).
  • It should also have USB-A ports for devices like a USB fan.
  • I prefer USB ports that can be controlled individually, not all together.
  • It should support Apple HomeKit.
  • I’m looking for a high-quality product.

The TP-Link Tapo P300 is good, but it only has 3 outlets and the USB ports are controlled together as a group. The Meross power strip is another option, but it lacks a USB-C port and also has group-controlled USB ports.

Do you think I’m worrying too much about this?
