Those are very intriguing! It looks like one of the questions was about the amps it will allow, so for a cluster of electronics I might have to have two (one for each power strip, for example) which wouldn't be too onerous as I'd likely split the cluster into separate needs anyway.

Like leaving the fiber tv box on power, but have the TV/Playstation/Sound bar on something I could turn off.

My main worries are:
1) Access. I don't want the kids watching fracking ghost hunting shows when they should be doing the GD dishes before I get home.

2) Electricity usage when we are not there.

And yes, in that order.

(Also, for Wally - this might be your wifi solution - you could keep a remote by your bed and just turn it off at bed time, as long as the devices the kids are using do NOT then pull a cell signal. Data usage, my man, data usage).
