The ability to control the power in outlets through provided software also makes the PowerUSB a home or commercial automation device. The lights or any devices can be switched on remotely or through timed software applications. The power consumed in the power strip is measured for overload protection and power consumption readings.
PowerUSB - Digital IO provides ability to get digital input and output to the attached computer through USB interface.
