I have written a blog previously about the phantom menace that uses power. We all have power menaces in our home that are sapping power when we assume they are “off”. 

To save energy a smart choice is the advance power strip. The advanced power strip detects devices that are unimportant and turns them off when not in use. If you have a TV plugged into a control outlet when you turn off the tv other components such as the DVD player, or game console will be automatically turned off saving energy.

The strip has outlets for “always on” devices that need to be on.

The advanced power strip is available at electronic stores.
