Smart plug for hair straightener/dryer?

Smart plug for hair straightener/dryer?

I’m wondering if there’s any issue with smart plugs for hair dryers/straighteners/etc? My sister always panics about leaving her straightener plugged in, and having a couple smart plugs of my own, I thought that might be a good idea for her.

I know how dryers can trip circuits, so I’m curious if anyone has tried this and whether or not it would work well or become a hazard. I’m looking at the Meross ones if relevant.
