The Motion Sensor Advanced PowerStrip is an energy-saving surge protector that monitors activity in the workspace by detecting motion. When the workspace is unoccupied for a specified period of time, it automatically removes the power supplied to selected outlets, thereby reducing power wasted by the unused electronics. Featuring a highly-accurate passive infrared PIR motion sensor, the Motion Sensor Advanced PowerStrip uses motion as a proxy to determine user presence in the workspace area.
You probably wouldn't want to use it for all your electronics, but we're guessing that most folks could find a few uses for this new motion-sensor equipped HiSAVER power strip, which can automatically cut off power when you leave the room. To avoid too much powering on and off, the strip only shuts off power if it doesn't detect any motion for ten minutes, and it includes a master outlet and a second selectable outlet that can be kept on all the time if you like. Head on past the break for a quick video demonstration.
Belkin Conserve Socket F7Cq. Power strips are a popular option for electronics users around the world to expand their existing electrical outlets. However, commonly plugged-in devices such as TVs, computers, media players and printers continue to use power when in standby mode on a traditional power strip.

These buildings were chosen because they have energy meters to measure the effectiveness of energy conservation efforts, and because many of the departments within these buildings have an emphasis on sustainability and the effective use and distribution of resources. Note: when determining mounting locations for the sensor, verify the connecting cable from the personal sensor will comfortably reach the cable socket on the power strip. The DI is usually mounted under a desk.

Smart power strips come with a range of bells and whistles, but they all have 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.
As businesses increasingly monitor their energy usage, plug loads tend to be overlooked. Some of the most common plug loads include computers, monitors, printers, copiers, telephones and task lighting. Coffeemakers and water coolers are other ongoing energy drains.
Almost everyone uses a power strip at home for their electronic devices these days because the danger of a power surge is well known. Experts say on average standby power consumption ranges from five to 10 percent of electricity usage in each household. Ambit Energy reviews the two best smart power strips for the home.
