Lunch meeting featuring Mr Lawrence T. Wong on green device Intelliplug

Our speaker today was Mr Lawrence Wong, who spoke about “Using Green Technology: saving standby power and saving money”.  Lawrence introduced IntelliPlugs and IntelliPanels to us , which have been designed to make life easier as they automatically switch your equipment off when it is no longer in use. Leaving electrical equipment on or in standby wastes energy, costs you money and can actually reduce the lifespan of your equipment.  It is designed for use with televisions and computers, which have supplementary equipment known as the peripherals (printers, scanners, etc). Once you plug your equipment into an IntelliPlug or IntelliPanel, it will automatically power all peripherals ON and OFF automatically. These devices will also help you to “go green”, reduce your “carbon footprint” and help fight climate change.
