Smart Strip for HT: APC Shoutout
about a year ago I had a 3rd smart strip failure wrt timely /failure to turn off controlled amps, etc.
Last night I noticed that my recent unit, an APC P11GTV, just over a year old now, was failing.
Initially when first installed, it would switch off the units on the controlled outlets in about 7 to 10 seconds.
Last night, I saw that after 5+ hours, controlled units had not switched off . . . .
the master was off but the control function was failing.
After calling APC today,
They will send me a new one . . . free - it's their lifetime guarantee policy.
I'll be shipping the failing unit back, pre-paid, so they can see what went wrong.
glad I registered the unit . . .
The CR : SPOT ON!
Reminded me of Erich at DIYSG
So I've ordered another for my mancave setup.
It may have seemed at the time that $40 (or so) (Amazon) was a bit over the top , but .. .
Quality doesn't cost: It pays.
