I’m all about saving money, and if I can help the environment at the same time, that’s even better. With all of the electronics in our house, we use tons of electricity. Unfortunately, we probably use a lot more than we need to just because there are some things that we don’t think to turn off every time we’re done using them. For example, when I’m done with the tv, I turn the tv off, but the surround sound doesn’t always get turned off because it just doesn’t dawn on me. Same thing with my computer printer, dvd player, video games – the list really just goes on. While leaving one item on doesn’t sound like much, when you add it all up, you’re paying for a ton of electricity that you don’t even need to be using.
BITS Limited gets it, so they’ve come up with a brilliant solution. Their green surge protector, the “Smart Strip” cuts down on that extra power usage for you. Simply plug your main device (like your tv) into the “control outlet”, then plug the devices that work with your tv (dvd player, video games, surround sound, etc.) into the “automatically switched” outlets. When you turn off your tv, The Smart Strip senses that there’s no longer power going through the “control outlet” and thus turns off your other devices that are plugged into the “automatically switched” outlets. Without even thinking you’re saving energy and money! Plus, it’s as easy to set up as a regular power strip, so once you plug everything in, there’s nothing left for you to do. You’re going to save an average of $52.91 in energy costs per year with just one Smart Strip, so with the low price tag of $29.95-$39.95, it’s paid for itself within the first six months! I can’t think of an easier way to save money and the earth at the same time!
