If you want to lower your expenses, electricity use is a fair place to start. The Smart Strip power strip, an energy-saving, high-powered surge protector, is a good hunch for those who want to reduce their energy bills
The difference it makes!!!
Usual power strips open out the number of electrical outlets and also can root for you to leave devices plugged in all the time, so that they keep draining power even when not in use. This so-called phantom power drain costs you money and wastes electricity. The Smart Strip will automatically disable power to these items when your equipment is turned off, a simple way to eliminate the phantom energy users.
Smart power strip has two basic components: electrical outlets and circuitry that monitors and controls those outlets. For example, when a printer plugged into a basic smart strip goes into standby mode, its power consumption drops. The circuitry detects the change and cuts the power to that outlet. The rest of the outlets in use stay on. Many smart power strips also have some unmonitored/always-on outlets where you could use to plug in the devices that continuously need power, like your cordless phone base or alarm system.
- Helps save electricity by slaying phantom energy sources
- Protects from a power shortage during a storm, potentially saving your money
- Lifespan of up to 20 years so can be a cost-effective investment
- The strip certainly has plenty of benefits, but the cost and the difficulty finding it in stores are significant drawbacks
