Save Money and the Environment with CheckTap

Posted on 4.09.2008
CheckTap is a two-pronged approach aimed at saving you money and the environment. The first step is to download the software, then plug in your computer, printer, monitor or scanner into the power strip and you're set.

CheckTap works by sensing which equipment has been sitting idle for a while then shuts it off automatically and completely - as standby mode on all devices still uses up electricity. CheckTap claims the money you save on electricity will pay for the system in six months.

A neat feature of the software tells you how much energy is being saved and the resulting reduction of CO2 emissions. CheckTap is said to be available in the US in May at major retailers.
