The smart switch only turns off your centeral A/C for 20 minutes at a time and you have to ask the power company to install one for you.

The smart meter they claim cant turn off your power, but I have been told other wise by farmers and ranchers who pump water and have their wells on smart meters.
You can get the smart switch or saver switch for wells too, you can also buy your own electric meter and take it apart to look for a switch, there is no switch, that is why you have to pull the meter to switch the power off if you want the power off before the breaker box.

You can get the smart/saver switch for water heaters, wells, air conditioners, electric heat, any large electric load, they don't offer them in my area yet for EV's but I was told by my power company that they would not stop me from charging my EV off that switched line.
