At first glance, having a remote for a surge protector seems a bit unnecessary. Most have a switch that’s easy to press if you wanted to turn it off to save energy. But on second thought the Belkin Conserve Switch Surge Protector actually makes total sense because we love to shove our surge protectors behind furniture and in other hard-to-reach places so a remote will help to conserve energy easily. This device has 2 “always-on” outlets and 6 outlets that you can turn on or off via the remote. The wall mountable wireless remote has a 60 foot range and doesn’t require line-of-sight to work. So this will save your electronics from power surges and save you money and energy by letting you turn them off completely when not in use. Win-win.
