This advanced multi-sensing power strip senses remote control signals, motion and load sensing. As with other advanced power strips, when the device that is plugged into the master outlet is turned off, the devices that are plugged into the switched outlets will also turn off – automatically. What makes this device different is that when no IR remote control signals (such as those used to control a TV, DVD, or surround-sound system) are detected in the area in front of the TV, the internal count timer in this APS will switch off the TV and peripheral devices, delivering additional savings. The power strip contains 7 outlets, consisting of 2 always on outlets, 4 switched outlets, and 1 master current-sensing outlet, along with the IR Remote control sensor. The always on devices remain on regardless of IR remote control activity or whether the device on the master outlet is on or off.
