The Conserve Insight Energy Cost Monitor makes it easy to be smart about energy. With the help of this handy device, you can see how much your devices cost to use on a yearly or monthly basis so you can make better energy decisions. Additionally, because the Conserve Insight also shows power plant carbon dioxide emissions produced to use various devices on a yearly or monthly basis, you'll discover your true environmental impact. The convenient tracking feature tracks your usage of a device over time and projects how much that device costs you to operate based on your actual usage.
Monitor is Customizable, Easy-to-Read
The Conserve Insight is both customizable and easy to read. A six-foot cord allows you to read the display at eye-level or place it on a table. And for added convenience, you can choose to use either the preloaded U.S. average electricity rate or enter your own rate off your electric bill. You can also set the carbon dioxide emissions rate for your specific region.
This unit includes a convenient tracking feature which gathers data over time to provide accurate energy use information based on your actual usage.
Smart, User-Friendly Design
Designed for ease of use, the Conserve Insight sets up in minutes. Simply plug it into a standard outlet and then plug a device in to the unit. The screen will automatically display how many dollars per year your device costs in its current operating mode--no need to press a button. Easy-to-understand graphic icons make it easy to read results, while both instantaneous and tracking modes of usage calculation let you put things in perspective.
With your device plugged into the Conserve Insight, you can press one of the corresponding buttons to enter into the desired mode. For a range of readings, pressing the CO2 or dollar button more than once will switch between monthly and yearly readings.
The Conserve Insight Energy Use Monitor is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

The time it stayed on seemed really reduced. 6 hours became 3 or less. A few weeks later I started smelling burnt plastic or burning wires.
My immediate thought was that the Dyson unit was on fire. It was not and showed no sign of any issue. I unplugged it and ran a test with another outlet without the Belkin socket. The Dyson ran fine with no odor emitted.
That's when I noticed the Belkin plug. It must have shorted out and was burning whenever I activated it. See the attached photos as both the front an rear have fire damage.
I will send it back to Belkin and see what their reply is. This is obviously a major concern.
Please note that this product could have killed my children. I just feel lucky my wife found this in time. I have three of these that are now useless. Wemo/Belkin - I do expect to hear from you with a plan for taking these back. I do note additional burned plugs in other reviews and have also reported this item to the CPSC. Sigh - do not buy this.
***Update*** March 15, 2015
HOURS after I posted this review, Belkin contacted me telling me how critical it was for them to get in touch with me to rectify this. I replied immediately. Two weeks went by and I heard back from them on March 5th asking for my receipt and the photo taken of the burned Conserve Socket. I sent these to them on the same day with a request for them to contact me immediately. Amazingly, two weeks later I still have not heard back from Belkin about this. I can only surmise that I received my initial email because Belkin only cares how my review affects their sales and could not care less about nearly burning my home down with my three children inside it. For shame Belkin!! You've officially converted this Wemo evangelist into a Wemo hater.
However, I wouldn't recommend using this with anything that draws a lot of power (a heater for example). In the manual it states this outlet can handle upwards to 1800 watt. It doesn't, and I found out the hard way.
I used this with my radiating heater. It has 2 settings, 900 watt and 1500 watt. While using this with 900 watt, it works fine. However one day I used this on the 1500 watt settings, 10 mins in, I started to smell burning plastic and saw this outlet puffing smoke.
As you can see in the photo, part of it melted. Good thing I was nearby, I wouldn't wanna imagine what would have happened if I wasn't. It was already past my 1 year warranty as this was the first time I used the max setting on that heater. But from here on I would be careful with any Belkin products that has electrical currents running through.
So, if you are using this for a lower wattage use, it's great for what it does. Just don't use it with anything that draws lots of power.
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.
Anyway, I bought one for my stereo system, as I like to go to sleep with music. Yet, I wanted it to turn off the entire system after so many minutes, as I usually fall asleep pretty quickly. The 30 minute setting was perfect for this, and it performs flawlessly. I really like that the unit has a LED on the same side as the button, so you KNOW when it's on, AND, it's a green LED that turns bright immediately, then drops to a dim glow until the unit turns off. This is wonderful for bedrooms as the light is so low, you don't even notice it.
The other usage I got it for is to turn off my space heater in the winter time, as this unit can handle up to the full 15 amps of pass through current. I tested that, and that also works. I am not sure whether I will use the 30 minute, the 3 or 6 hour setting. See this is for my computer room, and I expect I'll only need it for the first 30 minutes, as my computer does a good job of heating the room after it's on a while.
Update: After only a couple of months, one of the units stopped working as a switch. It now just passes the electricity through, effectively leaving it turned on forever. This makes it worthless when it fails.
