SMART STRIPS.... The SoM Office of Facilities Planning and Management has recently begun a campaign to lower office-related power consumption via the use of "Smart Strip" power strips. These power strips have a feature whereby there is a blue "control" outlet which switches all white "normal" outlets off whenever the device plugged in to the blue outlet is itself turned off. There are also red "constant hot" outlets which are not turned off by the blue "control" outlet. Watch a video explaining the Smart Strip...


Smart Strips are available in SmartMart
