Energy Saving Surge Protectors

A Tier 1 Advanced PowerStrip saves energy by reducing the amount of standby power & vampire current wasted by home AV systems and Desktop PC systems.

A Tier 1 APS operates on a simple master/switched basis. If the TV or PC is on, then peripheral devices are powered on. If the TV or PC is switched off, then the peripheral devices are automatically switched off, thereby reducing power waste.

SmartStrip® Key Features

Save
Money

Save more than $30* a year in energy costs when used with a standard computer setup.

Save
Electricity

When the control device turns off, so do the automatically switched devices.

Stop Phantom
Power Loss

Some consoles can use over 23 watts of electricity in standby mode or when performing automated tasks like updates.

On-OFF
Threshold

User adjustable +/- sensitivity screw allows for greater device compatibility.

How It Works

A sensor monitors the flow of electricity to the Control Outlet and when there is a significant drop, it switches off the power to the Switched Outlets.

So when your control device/appliance goes into sleep mode or you shut it off, the Smart Strip saves energy and money!
