[Canadian Tire] Noma 7-outlet smart surge protector $14.93 - GTA (Leslie & Lakeshore)

This is a 7 outlet surge protector rated at 2520 joules. It is called smart because it is supposed to reduce phantom power usage. You plug your main device (eg TV) into the master outlet. Your other devices (DVD, game box, amplifier, etc) are plugged into the remaining 5 master-controlled outlets. When current flows in the master outlet (ie your TV is turned on), it powers up the master-controlled outlets. When you turn off the main device, the master-controlled outlets are turned off to reduce stand-by power usage. There is a switch to turn off this feature and the device then behaves like a normal powerbar. There is also an additional 7th outlet that is always on and coaxial input and output to protect your cable. It comes with a 5 foot cord with a 90-degree plug and a built-in circuit breaker.

Most Canadian Tires are out of stock or have this item at a higher price. I found the Leslie and Lakeshore Canadian Tire had about 75 units in stock at the end of aisle 31 tonight.

I have three of these in my house for two months now. And they are fantastic if you know how to utilize their phantom energy saving feature.
I have one setup behind the tv stand that lets the TV be the master switch.
I also have one setup in my home office that lets the desktop be the master switch.
And i have a third one in the basement for regular power bar duty.

These are $25 clearance in york region canadian tires currently.

How would this work if you have a PVR from the cable company? If there is no power to the PVR then nothing will record.

As the PVR needs to be always powered in order to record, I have my PVR plugged into the always on plug.

Isn’t smart = works with google home/Alexa? This one doesn’t seem like it has that capability.

I saw these a few weeks back... the smart refers to a feature wherein they'll cut power draw on 6 of the outlets when the main "master" outlet isn't drawing much power.

I believe they're meant specifically for home theatre systems. So you put your TV on the 'master' outlet and your speakers, receiver, etc. on the other outlets.

You can turn this feature off, so it's still a decent deal. But yes, this thing is massive. The box you see pictured is the size of a small coffeemaker.
