The On/Off switch is an UL-approved 15Amp breaker that will switch 'off' during a surge.
It is recessed by design to help avoid accidentally
shutting the power off (by stepping on it, for example).
These indicator lights do more than just tell you if you've got power flowing.
The green light is a patent-pending widget that evaluates the grounded
circuit to ensure that you're actually grounded. (They also tell you if
you've got power available.)
This is where the magic happens. The "Control Outlet". This outlet senses a 10% shift in current and works with sleep modes for computers, TVs and other main devices.
The "Constant Hot Outlets". These red sockets will always get power as long as the Smart Strip is on. The Smart Strip also provides superior EMI/RFI
filtering and line noise reduction (which saves wear and tear on things plugged into it.)
The "Automatically Switched Outlets". When they're off, they
save energy by completely preventing idle power draw from electronics that would normally be consuming power when in their off/standby state. Turn off the blue, these turn off too.
Depending on which version you buy, you might see this. Some Smart Strips will
protect your cable box, or your phones, faxes and modems. More specialized
versions will protect other hardware. Check our store to see what's there!
