Types of Tier 2 Advanced PowerStrips


There are currently two types of Tier 2 Advanced PowerStrips:



Residential T2 APS

Tier 2 Audio/Visual (AV) Advanced PowerStrip

The residential Tier 2 AV Advanced PowerStrip (Tier 2 AV APS) features a connected sensor with configurable countdown timer that detects infrared (IR) remote control activity and motion to determine whether the TV and AV peripheral electronics are being used. If no IR remote control activity or motion is detected within the countdown timer period, the Tier 2 AV APS automatically shuts off the TV and power supplied to the AV peripheral electronics (e.g., AV receiver, DVD player, speakers) plugged into the switched outlets on the power strip is removed.

Commercial T2 APS

Commercial Tier 2 PC Advanced PowerStrip

The commercial Tier 2 PC Advanced PowerStrip (Tier 2 PC APS) features a highly-accurate sensor with a configurable countdown timer that connects to the computer via USB. Each time the sensor detects movement in the workspace area, for example – keyboard strokes or mouse movement, the countdown timer is reset.

If no movement is detected in the workspace area during the countdown timer period, a sleep command is sent to the computer putting the computer and monitor into sleep mode, and power supplied to the PC peripheral electronics, (e.g., printer, task lamp, speakers, etc.) plugged into the switched outlets on the power strip is removed.
