At CableOrganizer® we know the value of a dollar as well as the importance of conserving electricity to improve the health of our planet. Doing so helps to protect valuable resources all around. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are many advantages for being energy efficient. Those include the environmental benefits of lowering greenhouse gas emissions, lessening pollution and decreasing water use. Economically, using energy-efficient products helps to lower individual monthly utility bills, as well as potentially helping to keep energy costs down for all utility customers on the same grid. The United States Department of Energy — which indicates that reducing power increases energy security (the ability to keep it affordable without interruptions to service) — estimates that adding energy efficient appliances and upgrades to a household alone can save anywhere from 5 to 30% monthly on utility bills. Seeking out Energy Star® certified products is also important, which are items designed to save power and in turn money.
To help you live greener and conserve cash on your utility bills, shop at CableOrganizer® for an array of energy-saving products that help to monitor your power consumption, keep systems running even during power brownouts and blackouts, provide portable solar power, automatically shut off lights, have current-sensing abilities, identify electrical use patterns and more.
Here are some of the top products that can help cut down on energy consumption within your home, office, garage or other location:
KILL A WATT™ ELECTRICITY POWER METER
The Kill A Watt™ Electricity Power Meter assesses the efficiency of electrical appliances in your space. You plug up to a 115 Volt AC (maximum 15 Amp) item into the meter. Its LCD display shows the consumption of the appliance by kilowatt-hours.
P4460 KILL A WATT™ EZ ELECTRICITY USAGE MONITOR
This product displays the voltage, line frequency and power factor for each electrical appliance, monitoring the efficiency of these items to enable you to decide if you have any item you would like to disconnect. It has a built-in battery backup that also saves your usage readings in case of a power outage.
SMART STRIP ADVANCED POWER STRIP
This adjustable current-sensing circuit is reported to cut your energy costs an average of approximately $30 each year, depending on the items connected to it. It also features built-in surge protection for up to three lines that can minimize the chance of loss and damage to appliances and electronics.
TRIPP LITE ENERGY SAVINGS ECO SERIES UPS SYSTEM
This uninterruptable power system (UPS) helps to offer protection during brownouts, blackouts and transient surges. Equipped with built-in outlets that provide a 99% energy-efficient battery charging system, it is programmed to shut down accessories like printers and multi-media speakers when they are not in use.
WIRERUN™ SOLAR POWER BANK
This solar power bank stores up to 5,000 mAh or 1.5 times the average cell phone battery, making it capable of fully charging a phone, with power to spare if it’s needed for other devices. It charges them efficiently and quickly, from 0% to full power in about two hours. The solar power bank can be recharged from anywhere, including your car dashboard.
OUTDOOR PROGRAMMABLE TIMER WITH PHOTOCELL
This outdoor timer can be programmed to turn lights on and off, with choices visible on an LED screen. It automatically illuminates because of a built-in photocell that will not switch on unless it detects darkness. It can be timed to switch off automatically — another measure to promote energy conservation — by limiting how long you keep your lights on.
DECORA® MANUAL ON OCCUPANCY SENSOR
Who hasn’t walked out of a room and forgotten to shut off the lights? With the Decora® Manual ON Occupancy Sensor, lights shut down automatically if no motion is detected in a room. This product can be used in many applications residentially, including kitchens, bedrooms, living or family rooms, basements and garages.
LEVITON® DECORA® OCCUPANCY SENSOR SWITCH WITH LED NIGHT LIGHT
This is another sensor switch that helps to lower electric bills, turning off all lights except a nightlight that consumes under a half a watt. The product features a passive infrared sensor (PIR) that turns on lights automatically when motion is detected within a 180-degree coverage area up to 1,200 square feet. It can also be manually delayed, shutting off after 30 seconds, 30 minutes, an hour or two hours. The LED night light illumination is adjustable in that it can be set for an individual preference, responding to ambient light presence with an internal photocell. The LED night light switch can be changed to automatically dim to 5% of its full brightness after two minutes, if someone has left the room.
WATTSTOPPER® DW-100 DUAL TECHNOLOGY WALL SWITCH SENSOR
The WattStopper® SmartSet™ also features PIR and identifies usage patterns that automatically adjust with a time delay to provide for optimal energy efficiency. The WattStopper® shuts lights off after three minutes if no activity is detected and after 30 seconds after someone has been detected in the space where it is located.
LUTRON® MAESTRO™ DIGITAL FADE DIMMERS
The Lutron® Maestro™ Digital Fade Dimmers turn lights on and off with a touch. The switch can also be released for a delayed fade-to-off setting that offers a person adequate time to exit a room before the lights switch off. The Maestro™ is equipped with an Advanced Programming Mode (APM) that allows for custom fade presets before the switch cuts the power.
LUTRON® DIVA® LIGHT DIMMERS
These low-voltage light dimmers can provide soft and ambient lighting, thanks to a separate slide dimmer. The built-in night light makes it easy to locate the dimmer in the dark. In the event of a power loss, it also restores lighting to the same level, which saves on energy costs if lights had previously been dimmed.
TRIPP-LITE® 1-OUTLET SURGE PROTECTOR WITH TIMER
The 1-Outlet surge protector from Tripp-Lite® provides up to 350 joules of surge protection affordably for one small electrical device at a time. It has a quick on/off switch that lets you promptly turn power off; or time power on the outlet for between one and six hours to help cut vampire electricity (power used even when a device is turned off).
TRIPP-LITE® ECO-UPS SYSTEM WITH LCD SCREEN
This unit features three power outlets among eight that can reduce energy consumption. It automatically cuts power to connected accessories — such as scanners, printers and speakers — three minutes after the device goes into sleep mode or is shut down.
FSR® POE TO USB POWER ADAPTERS
This USB receptacle includes enough power to charge your phone, tablet, portable gaming console and other devices, even when a standard AC receptacle is not available. It runs from an ethernet cable by taking two amps of power from a RJ-45 Ethernet cable and converting it to USB.
