Most of us may not realize it but electrical equipment on stand-by power (also known as vampire draw) wastes electrical power by slowly consuming power even though the equipment has been “switched off”. This electrical leak can add as much as 10% to your monthly electrical bill. Switching off each device can be a hassle. For example, there can be at least half a dozen devices that make up an average home theater system – TV, sound system, BD player, DVD player, DVR, AV receiver, cable or satellite box and game consoles. Wouldn’t it make sense to turn everything on and off with just the TV remote? The Belkin Conserve Socket with Energy Saving Outlet does just that.
The idea behind the Belkin Conserve Socket with Energy Saving Outlet is very simple. It has a specially marked green colored Master Outlet that you plug your TV into (or any other equipment you want to designate as your “master” device). The Belkin socket features a detection technology that detects if the master device has been switched on or off. All the other devices that are connected to the controlled section of the Belkin Conserve Socket are automatically switched off when the master device is switched off. Altogether, 5 other devices can be controlled by the master device.
In addition, there are 2 additional sockets on the Belkin Conserve Socket that are not controlled by the master device. This is to allow you to connect devices that require to be powered at all times like your DVR or WiFi router for example.
Besides saving you money from unnecessary power leaks, the Belkin Conserve Socket also provides 1080 Joules surge protection to protect sensitive electronics. This protection is backed by a $100,000 connected equipment warranty.
