I also put the scanner on a WiFi Controlled Outlet adapter so that the scanner can be turned off remotely and/or put on a timer or schedule. Both of these can be setup on multiple devices which works well for the rest of the family that may want to adjust the volume on the scanner or just shut it off. Here are some pictures.
