Conserve Energy Saving 8-Outlet Surge Protector with Remote Switch
I have been waiting for Belkin's Conserve surge protector to appear on its website since January when I first read about it in CES reviews. It's finally on the site- though not for sale quite yet (list price is $50). Why have I been stalking this surge protector? Because it comes with a wall mountable remote control that will shut off up to 6 devices and keep them from drawing standby power- which can account for 5-10% of a household's energy use! Two "always on" slots remain available for things like routers and answering machines. I only hope they work on one frequency so that one remote can turn off my whole house. Fabulous.
That is brilliant. I like that I can be in control of when things get turned completely off - eliminating vampire power losses and saving $$.
