Abstract

See full text

A multi-zone plug-in load control device controls a plug-in electrical load in a predefined manner in response to received wireless digital messages depending upon which of a plurality of electrical receptacles into which the one of the electrical loads is plugged. The load control device receives wireless digital messages representative of whether the space in which the multi-zone plug-in load control device is located is occupied or vacant from an occupancy sensor. The load control device is operable to determine if one of the electrical loads (e.g., a television) is in a standby mode, and to remove power from the one of the electrical loads in response to determining that the space is vacant only when the one of the electrical loads is in the standby mode. In addition, the load control device is operable to disable further control of the electrical load in response to the received wireless digital messages if an electrical signature of a load current drawn by the one of the electrical loads is similar to a predetermined electrical signature.
