players into power strips, turn the power strips

video equipment in standby mode still use

Are there phantoms lurking in your home?
Home electronics are responsible for approximately 9% of household
electricity use. Many of these products continue to draw a small
amount of power even when they are in standby/off power mode.
These “phantom” loads occur in products such as DVD/VCRs,
televisions, stereos, computers and kitchen appliances.
e outlets in this power strip work together,
automatically turning all controlled devices on
when motion is detected in front of the remote,
and off when the workspace has not been
occupied for a period of time. It contains six
outlets controlled by motion and two outlets
that are uncontrolled, which remain on regardless of occupancy.
Check out the Energy Thieves calculator at txu.com/energythieves to
help you figure out the “phantom” power use in your home.
