|The Belkin Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip lets you control power to your whole entertainment system with the push of a button--your TV's power button. The green colored Master Outlet senses when your TV is on or off and controls power to five peripheral outlets for your AV components. When you turn your TV off, power to the peripheral components goes off too--including standby power--so no energy is wasted|
Home electronics consume energy even when they're turned off. Leaving home entertainment system peripheral devices on when not in use can add up to an average cost of $75 a year.* The Smart AV helps you reduce these costs by cutting down on wasted power.
Saves Energy Automatically
The Smart AV automatically turns off DVD players, VCRs, game consoles, receivers, subwoofers, and more when you turn your TV off, and it protects sensitive electronics from power spikes or surges with 1000 joules of surge protection.
Fast, Simple Set-Up

Customer Reviews of Belkin Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip
works as designed and saves energy, bought 3
Although you turn off your devices on your entrainment center it still consumes phantom power. This is because most devices like DVD, VDR blu ray, and receivers will use a small amount of power to maintain its remote control circuitry. If the TV is not on more than likely you don't need the other devices powered up. This strip dose has two constant on plug in. These would be used for set top boxes and DVR's . These devices require phantom power for updates and to record. Just plug in your TV to the master plug and the power strip will monitor the delta current from the TV being on or off. If it senses the drop in current when you turn the set off it will switch off power to five of its plug-ins.
This is an excellent energy conserving power strip. It does take a few seconds to cut off power to everything plugged into the Master-Controlled ports, but it really does completely cut off power.
I have used timers and switches previously from belkin for my home theater system. Nothing works as great as the conserve power strip the fact that it automatic makes energy saving a breeze but also a that it was two always on switches for your TiVo,dvr etc. the savings I have received from this are significant when I measure with the energy monitor from belkin. GREATS also bought one of these strips for my computer to power off peripherals. Great product.
This simple power strip controls the turning on and off of all the attached hardware that a computer has these days ( monitor, sound system,etc. )while protecting the systems from power surges.
Rebuilt but fixed5/17/2012
These are fine if you just want a power strip. Out of two, one switched for a couple months, then failed. The other one didn't switch right out of the box. I am very disappointed, usually Belkin is good stuff, these are not.
great energy savings5/16/2012
Easy to set up. The power to the controlled devices switched instantly, I hardly notice it's there. I highly recommend to any green minded people
reliable and convenient
For a greener world - yippee9/19/2011
Just plug your main appliance into the "master" outlet and then up to 5 "dependent" appliances in. When you turn off your main appliance, the dependents turn off automatically - NO ghost power usage. Unit also has an on/off switch, heavy duty cord with grounded plug and two extra outlets that are NOT connected to the "master" (I use this for my alarm clock - which I want to keep on all of the time).
Very good quality, will save you a lot of money on electricity, I bought a couple and installed it in my kids room and the bill reduced 15%. It's as the name states "SMART"
