As if that’s not enough, IOGEAR has Green technology built into several products, filling two needs at once — providing a better planet to live in and fulfilling your technology needs.
If you have more than one computer setup in your home or office, stop using two separate computer monitors for them. The electrical draw on them costs both the environment and your wallet monthly. Instead, try one of IOGEAR’s KVM Switches, designed to share one keyboard, video display and mouse between two or more computers. These economical and highly efficient devices will save electricity, boost productivity and clean a monitor off your desk, giving you more room to work! And while you are at it, donate that extra monitor to your favorite charity.
Because our busy lives are always on the go and technology isn’t just around us in the home or office, IOGEAR has products aimed to help fill your mobile needs too. The Solar Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit is designed to keep your hands on the wheel, your eyes on the road. Since the device utilizes solar technology, there is not need to plug into your cigarette lighter for power so the device doesn’t put a strain on your cars alternator or battery, which would result in a lower miles per gallon average. As if that wasn’t cool enough, the Solar Bluetooth Caller Announce Hands Free Kit downloads your phone’s contact list via Bluetooth and then, on an incoming call, will announce who it is. This again keeps you focused on the road and not fumbling around with your phone. Like The Solar Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit, this device too is solar powered to be environmentally friendly.
Going Green does not mean a sacrifice in how you live your life or how you do business; in many ways green technology will enhance your day-to-day life. Don’t forget, take a photo of yourself Going Green and it could win you a $50 prize!
