Need the proper equipment name

I am trying to search for the device you can plug all your pumps/lights/skimmer into and it has a on/off button for each but I can't for the life of me think of the correct name. ( It's Friday! )

I am getting tired of unpluging my pumps everyday to feed from the power strip in the back

Thanks a ton folks!

There are X-10 controllers that do that sort of thing.

It is not a surge protector > it actually has a on/off switch for each electric device plugged into it.
