Bye Bye Standby

Bye Bye Standby is the UK's best selling 'off the shelf' energy saving solution designed to reduce daily energy consumption of electrical devices. Bye Bye Standby works by completely cutting power to the devices plugged into it when they're not in use, thus saving the power that devices would otherwise have consumed in Standby Mode. Bye Bye Standby is an effective way to save energy, carbon emissions and money.

In addition to the energy, carbon emissions and money savings, Bye Bye Standby can also be integrated with Harmony 2007 - providing a cost effective, simple to retrofit home automation system.

As with all Harmony components, Bye Bye Standby can be used as the sole platform in your home automation solution, or mixed and matched with other platforms such as X10, CBus, Rako & Dupline.

Online Controller
Online Controller (V2) Firmware 2.9

The key component for integration with Harmony - the Online Controller is the hardware interface that enables Harmony to communicate with the rest of the Bye Bye Standby range.

N.B. The Online Controller can be used with the web-based service at (subscription required) or with Harmony, but not both at the same time.

Several customers have purchased two Controllers - one for Harmony, one for the web-based service - providing maximum flexibility.

N.B. All Controllers purchased here are guaranteed to be running the latest available Firmware (Currently 2.9).
