As many people may be unaware of most of the electronics in your home actually drain energy even when turned off, just being plugged in they drain electricity. A couple of months ago I decided to get into the habit of unplugging everything to help save energy but it grew troublesome for some electronics because the plugs were under desks or behind objects. I even said to myself I wish they’d invent a way so I could do this with a remote and voila! They already had!
This works perfectly, with just one remote I can cut the power to 3 electrical outlets. I have a device that measures how many watts devices use and this cuts power 100% so those electronics are no longer draining power and these devices themselves use up so little power it doesn’t even register on my device.
Buy these and use them to save money, help lower our dependence on oil and help save the enviornment, how can you possibly lose?!
You get three wall units and the remote control and they are very easy to set up. Basically, plug the units into your outlets, plug your lights or small appliances into the units and turn them on. The wall units are each numbered and correspond to the numbered buttons on the remote. You can also turn the units on/off manually. One thing that did surprise me was the size of the wall units – they are approximately 5″ x 2 6/8″ x 2 3/4″ – and they don’t leave much room to enable you to plug something else into the bottom of the wall outlet. You might want to take that into consideration before you buy this product.
As a music educator in LAUSD, the behavior of my students is abhorrent. Most of these students are at a 1st grade level (musically), and teaching a piano class with 50+ beginning students was destroying my sanity. Anytime that I attempt direct instruction, they will not stop playing. I connected about 18 keyboards to each DSI Outlet two weeks ago, and I have not looked back. I am on the ultimate power-trip at the moment, and I don’t think I will ever come back. Silence…sweet silence.
I use it to turn on/off my bar lights and neon signs. One small concern; if u are running the microwave, the switch may not work – until your dinner is done! With a light plugged into each outlet, she is able to effortlessly control the illumination. It works from anywhere in her apartment, even when she’s in the next room!
