Title: POWER SHUT-OFF THAT OPERATES IN RESPONSE TO PRESPECIFIED REMOTE CONDITIONS
Abstract:
Apparatus and a method for temporarily disabling the operation of a noise-producing electrical device or internal combustion engine upon detection of a predetermined awareness condition, such as an incoming telephone call, doorbell ring, security alarm system or other awareness condition. The apparatus includes a command module (100) and one or more switchable power receptacles (102) that responds to a control signal from the command module (100) for deenergizing the electrical devices (117) when at least one of the predetermined awareness conditions (104-108) is detected. A command module (100) sends a wireless signal to a shutdown module (344) to control operation of an engine's ignition or fuel systems whereby the engine is disabled when the shutdown module (344) is switched to a shutdown mode.
