Vampire energy and standby power, many people know about these energy wasting problems, but do not know how to fix it short of unplugging their devices. These could be leading to up to 40% of your energy consumption! Now there is way that is significantly more convenient. The thinkeco modlet is an outlet that plugs directly in to the existing wall socket. What makes this thing so great? It has some serious smarts!
The first thing the modlet does is monitor the power consumption of your devices. When it realizes the device is turned of or on standby it eliminates this power usage. The second way it works is by working with your computer to schedule on/off times for your devices. Think about the time you spend at work and then have to come home and turn on all the lights. Why not just set your modlets to turn on all the lights 1 min. before you walk through the door?
The other neat trick the modlet does with your computer is wirelessly, through a USB dongle, it can recive real time energy usage data for any device plugged into it! This gives you a real understanding of where the energy hogs are hiding leaving you better equipped to plan how to combat this excess usage. Power strips plug dirrectly into it but at the cost of individual device monitoring or you can plug it into a power strip. It is compatible with almost any 3 pronged standard plug set up.
