New Energy Saver Remote Control Launched Wednesday 14 May 2008 PDF Print Nearly £1billion worth of energy is wasted in UK homes each year just by leaving appliances on standby.* But now One For All, the home electronics experts, have introduced the NEW 'Energy Saver' universal remote control that switches off all your a/v equipment at the press of a button for a greener environment. Easy to set up and simple to use, the Energy Saver remote from One For All is an excellent way to cut energy bills and go green. Simply insert the Power Plug into the wall socket, then connect up to four devices including your TV, DVD and satellite/cable digibox. The One For All Energy Saver remote comes pre-programmed to control the Power Plug, so you just press the special energy-saving green button on the remote to make an energy saving of 90%. A typical set of a/v equipment uses 9.7 Watts an hour if left on standby but by using the 'Energy Saver', this can be cut down to 0.9 Watts! Research shows** that a TV LCD consumes 1.5 Watts per hour in standby mode, a total of 11.49 Kilowatts per year on standby assuming the TV is in use three hours a day. A satellite receiver uses 6 Watts an hour or 45.99 Kilowatts annually. And a DVD recorder consumes 2.2 Watts per hour totalling 16.86 Kilowatts a year on standby. So, with the One For All 'Energy Saver', it's easy to save up to 74.34 Kilowatts a year or 44 Kg of carbon dioxide. And you can relax when you go to bed knowing that by switching off all your devices left on standby, there will be less risk of a fire. The One For All Energy Saver remote control is available from the end of May in major stockists including Dixons online and John Lewis - then Asda, Argos and Tesco from August. The Energy Saver retails at £39.99.

Multiplied by 24.4 million households (National Statistics - 2007) that amounts to £902 million of wasted electricity in a year ** based on Stiftung Warentest (03/2007) ENDS For further editorial information/high res photography, please contact: Julien Speed at Starfish Communications LLP on 020 7031 8146 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org Editor's notes: Technical Features The Energy Saver remote can control up to four devices including TV (Plasma, LCD and projector), DVD player/recorder, Satellite, Cable and Terrestrial Digital Video Broadcasting and Surround Sound Audio.
