I’ve been paying more attention recently to how much electricity my home actually uses. I’ve learned how much is consumed by devices left on all the time. Research it and you may be surprised; I was.
I now turn off my BHK 250 from the back panel when I go to bed, usually about 11:00 (OK, sometimes I stay up later listening ). Then I turn it on when I get home, usually about 4:00 so it’s ready to listen in the evening. This saves 75w x 16-17 hours a day, which adds up over time.
The problem is that I sometimes forget to turn it on. I thought about timers. Then it occurred to me: couldn’t the PSA power regenerators be programmed to turn zones on and off? They could get the time from the internet, avoiding the need to add a user interface to set the time. Then go to the web page and, along with other programming options, set a time for each zone to go on and off. Pressing a button on the screen could override the programmed setting if needed.
Is this possible? Do other people think it would be useful?
