If it's not hooked to AC power, and uses no batteries, how does it cost "less than 10 cents a year" to run?
It is hooked to power with patented power extractors.

That's a cool item. So I pledged on my phone! A lot easier to install. (I guess it will cut us out of the loop unless the homeowner is afraid of electricity.)

It's a cool idea and I'm sure it will be a big seller. It does seem like there's some potential for arcing and contact burn up with the "power extraction" arms not having a positive electrical connection. I'll be curious to see if any burn up because of contamination between surfaces, or if they'll be OK because they're essentially drawing no current.

Good on the guy for giving it a shot though. I hope he's successful.
