clockPROGRAMMABLE WITH AN ON/OFF SCHEDULE

PowerKey's sophisticated scheduling software allows you to automatically turn your computer on or off or to initiate unattended operations at preset times. Pop-up menus and descriptive sentences let you easily create powerful Events to control your system. Each Event has a Trigger which can be based on time and date, hot key, system activity, at start up and shut down. Each Event can initiate one or more Actions, to start up or restart your computer or perform system tasks such as executing AppleScripts or QuicKeysTM, opening files, mounting SCSI hard disks, etc.

zapPROTECTS YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM

PowerKey protects your system against power line surges, spikes, noise and overload. Zero crossing switching minimizes interactions between equipment and saves wear and tear on switches.

EASY TO INSTALL

First plug your computer and peripherals into PowerKey's outlets and plug PowerKey into an AC outlet. Next, insert the cable connector head into your computer ADB port, attach the long cable to the PowerKey and the short end to your keyboard cable. Turn on your computer, insert the PowerKey disk and double-click on the installer. It's that easy.
