According to, appliances in standby can account for up to 10% of the electricity bill. Using smart power boards are an easy and efficient way to save.

Switching off every appliance in your home at the power outlet is a time-consuming task. Many smart power boards can connect to a device via a smartphone app, allowing you to remotely switch appliances on and off via the app or voice control. This saves you from having to manually switch off each appliance at the outlet and is especially helpful when you’re not at home. Smart power boards can be purchased from stores such as Bunnings, Officeworks, JB Hi-Fi and Amazon.

Some smart power board apps can also allow you to monitor individual appliances' power consumption and set custom schedules or countdown timers to maximise energy savings.
