Remote control for F7C01008 Conserve Switch

Up to six devices can be controlled by the wall-mount remote switch.
Save Energy with a Single Click
A typical household spends an average of $30 per year by leaving computer system devices on but not in use.* The Conserve Switch Surge Protector helps to eliminate wasted power and to keep your electronics well-organized and protected. The included wireless remote has a 60-foot range and does not require a line of sight to the surge protector.

Eight Versatile Surge-Protected Outlets
The Conserve Switch offers a total of eight surge-protected outlets, six of which are switchable and two that are always on. This means that you can connect up to six devices that can be controlled by the remote, and two devices that will always stay on. The Always-On Outlets are useful for devices that require a constant flow of energy, such as routers, alarm clocks, cable modems, or DVRs.

For easy operation, the Conserve Switch features a re-settable circuit breaker, a "not grounded" light to indicate when a ground is not present, and a manual override button to control switched outlets. It also protects sensitive electronics from power spikes or surges with 1000 joules of surge protection.

Smart Space-Saving Design
The Conserve Switch has a slim design that saves space. A sliding safety cover on every outlet provides added protection, and a cable management system keeps cords neat and organized.

Save Even More with Conserve
For greater convenience and energy savings, you can place additional Conserve Switch units throughout the house and control them all with a single remote.

The Conserve Switch Surge Protector is backed by a limited one-year warranty and a $100,000 connected equipment warranty.

The problem being that most of today's electronics and the various chargers continue to consume small amounts of electricity when not in use and the waste can add up.

Brief evaluation

This surge protector allows for up to 8 devices to be plugged in with sufficient room for the wider DC adapters to fit and it will protect them against power surges. What makes it 'special' is, of course, the remote control that will completely shut off all but 2 of the outlets so nothing, not even stand-by power is consumed. This is good because it saves some energy and I suspect that the devices for which the power was completely shut down are better protected in the event of a spike. With the remote on my desk, I found that I almost always remember to shut things down when I'm done.

More details
The following are noteworthy, in my view.


+ Simple remote control with a 60 ft. range and no line of sight requirement to turn off all but 2 of the outlets - it's what makes this device special.
+ On-Off switch could be mounted on a wall (mounting screws not provided) or simply glued to the wall or the side of your desk (adhesive tape provided).
+ 8-outlet capacity with a lot of room for the wider AC adapters.
+ 'Always on' light shows that power is present.
+ 'Not grounded' red light (must be off) will warn you when there's something wrong. Belkin's warranty won't apply if the light was on when your devices got fried. I don't know if for a fact but I assume they have a way of telling if that was the case.
+ 'Remote-Switched Outlets' light shows when switched outlets are active.
+ Manual override button allows for direct control of switched outlets.

We bought two of these to use for the computer and game room. We wanted a way to turn off the power drain when items were not in use. The remote capability of this unit seemed like just what we were looking for. The first one we bought initially seemed fine and so we bought the second one. When the second one arrived, the remote did not function at all. We did some trouble shooting and narrowed it down to the switch function just not happening. If the switch had made a good connection, everything would have worked. About that time, the first one's remote started behaving badly. The light on the switch was blinking as if a connection was constantly being made. Also, the switch started to feel a little spongy, like connections were not being firmly made.

While the surge protectors themselves may be fine, we bought these for the advertised functionality of the remote switch. We are an adult only house, no kids pushing the switches or playing with them. The switches appeared to be be very poor quality. Instead we bought the green Tripp units, which were a iittle more, but didn't have any switch to worry about.

I was looking for something I could attach to my entertainment system, cable modem and wifi router and easily power all off to save power when not in use when I'm at work/sleeping/out of town and turn back on when I was home. I liked this product when I first got it, it did what it said it would do and the remote worked from anywhere in my condo.

However, 2 weeks in the remote would no longer send the signal to turn the unit off. I could manually turn it off and turn it back on with the remote, but that was it. However, since the power strip is placed in an area that's not easily accessible, the unit no longer served its purpose.

I've ordered a replacement through Amazon, I'll follow up after the new unit gets some use to see if this is a persistent problem.

I'm a little geeky when it comes to energy useage. Personally, I don't like paying more than $50 a month in electricity, especially when there are things I can do to reduce "phantom" energy usage. I bought the 8 plug model over 2 years ago and am still loving it. I actually bought a 2nd 10 plug one a few months ago (Belkin Conserve Switch F7C01110q AV Energy-Saving AV Surge with Remote) and thought I'd send out a review for both.

6 of the plugs are connected to the remote switch with 2 being available for always on performance. I connected my DVR and TV to the always on plugs with my router, cable modem, PS3 and receiver on the remote.

I keep the remote upstairs by my desktop computer (also on the a conserve switch) so I can turn on the internet whenever I use the desktop. There is also a switch on the surge protector so you can turn the remote-controlled plugs on and off without the remote. Since I have two Conserve units, I set both of them to the same frequency and they both work off the same remote. I use the upstairs desktop sparingly and it helps eliminate the phantom power draw from the power supply of the desktop when it is off. I used the handy Belkin Conserve Insight F7C005q Energy-Use Monitor to figure it cut 90% of energy usage for my desktop when off.

I did the math and it easily saves me 2-5 dollars a month in energy consumption on my router and modem alone vs. being on 24/7. I turn the router and modem off while I am at work or am not using the devices. It really pays for itself over the course of a year or two.
