The Envirotouch has been made for those looking to trim down on power usage. This device has been designed to shut off our appliances when
on standby mode. The Envirotouch is the latest take on the smart, energy-saving switch, relying on one-touch timer buttons to cut power
to our appliances soon after we stop using them.
Envirotouch sets the outlet to switch off after a user-determined period of time. The intention, however, is to simplify this process as
much as possible, so rather than carefully turning back a dial, users need only to hit a button one time.Envirotouch can be retrofitted to existing outlets and installed in new ones. Equipped with four buttons, users can choose to have the power switched off after 15, 45, 60 or 120 minutes.
There are savings to be made and carbon emissions to be mitigated if we can avoid energy going to waste.
Different models are available, with the Envirotouch able to be fitted to both switches and outlets and one model also enabling users to set
up automatic daily cycles. This might prove useful for shutting down entertainment systems overnight and starting up the coffee machine in
the morning, for instance.
