    You can program the Kodak Pulse to automatically shut down on particular times that you specify. This means it doesn't have to stay on even when you're not present. You can set it up in a way that it's only powered on if you're inside your home. Its power consumption is also considered efficient. These performance facts coupled with a mercury-free panel make the Kodak Pulse very environment friendly. That surely affirms its excellent rating we've given it.
