I have so many questions! I feel like this is one of those areas that has a whole much of vague, confusing, or just flat out wrong info out there.
First off, do I even need one if we have had literally one power outage in the 6 years we have lived in the we are in?
Am I correct in understanding that they also offer surge protection and votltage stability? I've noticed (through the magic of HE and energy monitors ) that our mains voltage fluctuates a fair amount. I know this is not ideal for electronics.
Last thing, can any of them be installed remotely? Meaning, installed in a nearby closet etc and some kind of wiring ran to the devices?
