When you power off whatever's plugged into the control outlet, this power strip cuts power to the other outlets. So if you turn off your computer, this outlet can cut power to your speakers, monitor, desk lamp, and external hard drive as well, saving money and energy.

6. Solar-powered blinds provide all the utility with none of the energy.

If you love automatic blinds, try solar-powered ones. They collect energy during the day so you can lower and raise them at your convenience.

7. A thermal leak detector helps you insulate your home.

Imperfect insulation can mean there are areas of your house leeching heat in the winter and cool in the summer. These leaks can negate a lot of the energy you use heating or cooling your house. A leak detector helps you locate these areas so you can stop energy drain at the source!
