Being green just got easy!
The Smart Strip has 10 clearly marked outlets that you plug your computer or home entertainment center peripherals into. When you power down your computer or stereo, the Smart Strip automatically shuts down the power to your computer's and entertainment's center peripherals. This unique feature not only saves you money and helps the environment; it also makes shutting down your systems fast and easy.
All electronics draw some power even when they are in sleep mode or turned off. For example, a computer monitor uses up to 30 watts even in sleep mode. That can add up to about $2.19 a month or $26.67 a year in energy costs. Other computer peripherals and home entertainment equipment can draw over 50 watts when off.
The advanced technology in the Smart Strip combines surge protection with automatic power control. It automatically turns off power to printers, DVD players, and other electronics when they are not in use, saving electricity and money.
Unlike most power strips, the Smart Strip itself uses very little energy. It uses one watt of power when fully engaged and less than 1/4 of a watt when the automatically switched outlets are off. Backed up by a 15 AMP circuit breaker and two frequency-sensitive RC filters that eliminate false switching. Plus, a passive current sensor ensures an ultra-safe, ultra-clean switching off and on of your peripherals, giving you added peace of mind that your valuable electronics will remain safe.
The Smart Strip's widely spaced, clearly marked outlets give you the space and ease to connect all necessary equipment. The four-way wall mountable design, 45-degree space-saver plug, and heavy-duty six-foot power cord offer the versatility to place the power strip wherever it is most convenient, so it never gets in the way of your footpath or your home decor. A lighted power switch keeps the strip visible, so you're never left fumbling in the dark.
