Are there any good options for something like this? I'd love to hook up my non-core peripherals so that I could turn them off when I leave.

Could I use an appliance module (if I took into account the load)?

Has anyone run a kill-a-watt on various z-wave modules to monitor their power output?

Appliance modules are rated: Resistive: 15 amps (1800 watts) maximum, 120 VAC - Motor: 1/2 H.P. maximum, 120 VAC - if your loads don't exceed that then what your looking to do will work I have a couple of places where I have power strips with multiple modules on them to control individual devices but if you want to control a power strip with a module that would work also.

Haven't dropped an appliance module on a kill-a-watt yet.
