Power Down: Calypso Smart Block AV

The new Smart Block AV from Calypso Systems addresses a classroom's need to reduce energy costs by managing the power used by low-voltage devices. Designed to work with Calypso's CB-5000 and CB-1000 wall-mount controllers, the Smart Block forwards commands at preset times for complete power shutdown, cutting the energy wasted by devices that are plugged in, but not turned on.

Best for K-12 classrooms, the Smart Block AV can be set for power or relay control, converts serial data to IR output, and features four relay terminals. MSRP is $199, but K-12 pricing is available.
