Giveaway: Bits Limited Smart Strip Surge Protector Review

smart-strip

Have you guys heard of the Bits Limited Smart Strip Surge Protector yet? I know I am pretty new to it – but I can tell you that my family is definitely enjoying it! My husband is an electronics lover – TVs, DVDs, computer, printer, etc. He is also very protective of his electronics so a surge protector is a must-have in our house.

And, did you know that a surge protector could save you money by saving energy? Yep, it sure can! And as you may be aware – I am a savings lover :) The Smart Strip is not only a surge protector, it can literally save us money on your electric bill just by having your items plugged into it! How FUN is that? And how EASY?! I know I can appreciate any additional savings each month…The average homeowner can save up to $40 per year per surge. Not bad at all for not doing ANYTHING but plugging your devices in :)

The Bits Limited Smart Strip saves energy, which means it saves you money, on things such as office equipment and home entertainment systems.

Another FUN fact is that Bits Limited Surge Protectors are made from recycled materials! I LOVE it when companies use recycled materials – it’s so much better for the environment. and save the homeowner $40 per year per surge. I’m sure you noticed the different colors on the Strip.
Well…
• Long story short is there are several “Hot Outlets”, colored red, that you would plug devices that need constant energy in to (Alarm clock, DVR etc).
• The green outlets are for your TV, your printer and other devices that do not need to be drawing constant energy from the grid. (Most people do not realize that any device that is plugged in is pulling energy from the Grid and costing them money. The device “unplugs” those outlets when not in use.
• The third color outlet, blue, will activate the green outlets when that device is turned on. Say you plug in your laptop, it will then “plug in” your printer.
• This device also tells you when the MOV (The actual surge protector inside) has degraded from surges so you know to replace it before it burns your house down.

Now that is what I call a Smart Strip!!! The particular Smart Strip I am trying out says it will save just about year. I am sure that can vary with each family and with what you have plugged into it. Not only is the Bits Limited Smart Strip good for your home, just think of the energy and savings in an office…

You can purchase the Smart Strip for just about $30 online at Bits Limited. Make sure you check them out on Facebook and Twitter too!

    We could really use a new one and have lots of things that need to be plugged into one. And it sounds like a really great one.

    Save Energy and money! I like the color code to let me know which devices should be plugged and it discounts the device when not in use.
