The i-BRIGHT7x Smart Surge Protector features a sleek design boasting seven outlets (two “always on” and five simultaneously schedulable), plus two USB charge ports. In addition, Tri Cascade is launching its proprietary BRIGHTenergy™ Cloud system, providing control for consumers to instantly turn the i-BRIGHT7x Smart Surge Protector on or off at anytime, from anywhere, via the BRIGHTenergy website or app for iPhone.

The i-BRIGHT7x also features a 802.11n Wi-Fi range extender bonus function, allowing consumers to maximize Wi-Fi coverage in their homes or workplaces and save up to $200 on an additional Wi-Fi extender. The i-BRIGHT7x is the ideal power accessory for the home, office, entertainment center, garage or kid’s room. The i-BRIGHT7x is also designed to support power loads up to 1875 watts and 3150 joules of surge protection, manufactured with the approval of the FCC and ETL.
During the setup of i-BRIGHT7x, consumers can easily use the BRIGHTenergy Cloud system via the Internet to create their ideal 24-hour/7-day schedule to turn the power to devices on and off. The system allows consumers to track energy usage and benchmark results through a web browser or iPhone. In addition to the convenience and control features, i-BRIGHT7x also provides enhanced benefits of:
