How to automate your outlets with Green Power technology

Your surge protector doesn’t have to be just for cleaning power before it hits your best flat screen TV, audio system, or other devices, and protecting you from electrical spikes. Green Power functionality (as shown above) makes sure that your electronics turn off completely and don’t draw power in standby mode while you’re at work, on vacation, or otherwise not at home to enjoy them.¬†Even when completely powered off, electronics can still draw small amounts of power just by being plugged in — shutting off the outlet is one of the best ways to make your system more energy efficient.

Oh, and don’t worry about it shutting off all your outlets; there are multiple static outlets on the system, and the Green Power functionality can be toggled on or off.

If you’re looking for the Monster HTUPS3700 on the Vann’s website, you can buy it here. If you’re looking for something a little smaller (the HTUPS is pretty heavy duty), but still with that function, take a gander at the AV PowerCenter 775G — you give up some of the clean power functionality, and the battery backup, but still get the awesome Green Power functionality for your best flat screen TV, speakers, and Blu-ray player.
