Your home entertainment and computer systems are never really “off”. Standby power creates harmful greenhouse gases as well as costing you money. In fact, according to Sustainability Victoria, 10% of residential power used is wasted by standby power.
All that changes when you install the new FutureSwitch™ clever plug. The plug sits between your appliance power board or plug and your power point. FutureSwitch™ is operated by a wireless remote switch that can be easily placed in a convenient location in your home or office.
It’s simple to install – NO ELECTRICIAN REQUIRED
Whenever you leave your home or go to bed, simply press the switch and FutureSwitch™ cuts the power to all your devices, taking them out of standby mode. On your return, press the switch again and they return to standby mode and ready for use. Everyday use of the FutureSwitch™ will save you power and money and, more importantly, our environment.
- One FutureSwitch™ can control an unlimited number of FutureSwitch™ wall sockets
- Various transmitters can be linked to the same wall socket and placed around the home, enabling you to perform the one function from any location
- The FutureSwitch™ is easy to program. Once you plug in the wall socket, the front bypass switch will flash green. You then simply press the transmitter to link them. The same process is applied when multiple wall sockets need to be linked to a single transmitter
- The flexibility of FutureSwitch™ allows you to set up different zones of your home or office. The options are limitless.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Wattson Energy Meter gets its information from sensor clips and a transmitter installed in your electricity meter or fuse box.
It measures the total amount of energy being used and produced in your home at any given time and shows this value on an easy-to-read display. It glows green when you are producing more electricity than you are using and displays on the screen the amount you are feeding back to the grid. In this way it helps your household understand how the grid-connected solar and feed-in tariff systems work.
