From the Manufacturer
8 total outlets for VCRs, DVRs, game consoles, receivers, and more. View larger.
By turning off a master device--such as a TV--up to 5 additional devices will simultaneously be turned off. View larger.
Leaving your home entertainment system devices on all the time can add up to $67 of wasted energy a year.** The Smart AV saves money and energy by cutting down on wasted power.
Saves Energy Automatically
The green-colored Master Outlet features detection technology that senses the power state of your device for maximum compatibility with a range of products. The Smart AV lets you control up to six different devices with your TV's on/off power. It automatically shuts down Master-Controlled Outlets when the master device (e.g. your TV) is turned off, and then automatically powers up Master-Controlled Outlets when master device is turned on. This helps reduce wasted power to cut down on overall energy consumption in your home.
The Smart AV automatically turns off DVD players, VCRs, game consoles, receivers, subwoofers, and more when you turn your TV off, and it protects sensitive electronics from power spikes or surges with 1000 joules of surge protection.
Fast, Simple Set-Up
The Smart AV is quick to set up. Simply plug a "master" device--most likely a television or stereo amplifier-- into the green Master Outlet. This master device will then control the five Master-Controlled Outlets, which are suitable for those devices, like DVD players VCRs and game consoles that do not require constant round-the-clock power. Cable/Satellite boxes, and DVRs, which need 24-hour power, should be plugged into one of the two dark gray Not-Controlled Outlets.
Space-Saving, Versatile Design
To save space, the Smart AV has a narrow footprint. Additionally, wall-mounting holes make it easy to place the surge protector behind furniture.
The Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip is backed by a limited one-year warranty and a $100,000 connected equipment warranty.

What do I like most about this Belkin unit? It just works. It arrives in a nondescript cardboard package with a tiny little booklet, alerting you to the fact that you can just plug this in and let it function as intended. I have my plasma TV in the control outlet, and the rest of the devices are as follows: 1) Onkyo AVR, 2) PS3, 3) XBOX, 4) Wii, 5) Subwoofer. Note: if you have a powered subwoofer, I highly recommend using the strip to control it. For whatever reason, almost all subwoofers use an inordinate amount of power when in standby mode. So, in practice: I turn the TV on and the rest of the electronics have power within 2-3 seconds. I turn the TV off and everything shuts down in about 5-6 seconds. I like the delay on shutdown. For instance, it takes a few seconds for the PS3 to completely power down. So if I forget the PS3 is not yet off and kill the TV, the delay is long enough to allow the PS3 to cycle off before cutting power. Whether intended by design or not, nice.
I looked extensively at the "Smart Strip" units also sold on Amazon before the Belkin was available. They seem like fine products, but many users complained that adjusting the sensitivity was difficult and the strip would often fail to properly determine whether the control piece of gear was on or off. As with anything, YMMV. This Belkin has no such adjustment, perhaps indicating the internal sensitivity is just better. It has worked flawlessly every time for me.Read more ›
Enter the Belkin Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip. Does it do what it's advertised to do? Absolutely! If you've never used a master-control power strip before it may be a bit confusing to use at first, but here's the basic rundown:
There are three kinds of outlets on this thing: one master, five control and two main ("always-on") outlets. Plug the main device you would use with the other devices (in this case, my stereo, computers and gaming consoles are used when I have my television on, so I put my LCD television into the Master outlet). Then I plugged my peripherals that I only wanted to use when the television was turned on (my PS3, 360, and stereo system) into the Control outlets. Finally, I plugged my Mac and PC into the Always-On outlets at the end.
So what happens? My Mac and PC are allowed to be always-on; thus even when my TV is turned off, both my Mac and PC will backup and do whatever I told them to do (you can always just shut them down if you aren't using them, but my Mac uses next to no power and my PC normally gets shut down after use). My gaming consoles and stereo are only turned on when I turn on my television; thus my PS3 and 360 only use power when my TV is turned on (which is awesome since I have the older models that suck power!).Read more ›
