Smart Strip power strips sense when your computer or television turns off - and automatically powers-down all peripheral devices (printers, monitors, speakers, DVD players, anything...) How is this possible? Plug your 'control' device into the blue outlet and plug all peripheral devices connected to it into the white outlets. When what's in the blue outlet comes on, what's in the white outlets turns on - when what's in the blue outlet turns off, all power is cut to the white outlets. You've also got three handy red 'hot' outlets that always supply electricity to devices plugged into them, whether the 'control' device is on or off.

Every device that you've got plugged in is always drawing electricity - whether a lot or a little, it adds up over 24 hours of each day. This continuous, low-level energy use is called a 'phantom load.' The Department of Energy estimates that as much as 43 billion kWh each year is wasted by phantom loads throughout the United States. The Smart Strip can help you eliminate the phantom loads of your peripheral devices - most commonly those associated with your computers or home entertainment centers.
