Green Hisaver Power Strip Senses Motion to Save Power

by Shane McGlaun

Being geeky and green can be tough if you have a bunch of high-end power slurping computers running in your house. I like to leave my computer running all the time, so it can backup and do its business while I sleep. I would bet lots of geeks out there do the same.

I might want my PC on all the time, but the printer, speakers and all the other powered crap sitting on the desk attached to the PC don’t need to be on all the time. A new power strip called the HiSaver has surfaced that makes it easy to save power when you leave the room. The HiSaver Powerbar has a remote motion-detecting sensor that sits on your desk. When you leave the room for at least ten minutes, four of the outlets on the thing turn off automatically to save juice.

One outlet at the top of the machine stays on all the time for the PC itself. If you need more than one always-on outlet, one of the four motion sensing outlets can be changed to always on with a flip switch. The thing is cool and can be purchased now for $109.99(USD), making it one of the more costly power strips you’ll ever see.
