PTC Seal of Approval Awarded to Power Cop: Home Power Regulation Device
LOS ANGELES (April 25, 2006) -- The
Parents Television Council™ has awarded its Seal of Approval to
Power Cop, a home power regulation device. The Power Cop helps parents
manage the amount of time children use electronic devices, including
televisions, computers and video games.
"Parents are concerned that their children spend too much
time in front of television watching programs or playing video games,"
PTC Executive Director Tim Winter said. "The Power Cop allows them to
control the amount of time their children spend in these endeavors. We
think that's a very good thing."
The unique device locks the power cord of any electronic
device into the Power Cop unit and allows parents to set the amount of
time that the device stays on. At the pre-set time, the Power Cop will
automatically turn the device off. Once locked, the electronic device
power cord cannot be removed.
