type in split wired in your browser.    I'm assuming this is what you meant.

Switched is the term I have been using.

Around here, when when an outlet is switched it's "upside-down" so that the resident can tell that outlet is switched.  But I think it's usually both of the outlets, not just one of them so it wouldn't be "Split Wired" - just a standard duplex upside down.

"Switched" to me has always meant half, and the usage has always been nightstand lighting in bedrooms.  If both were switched it would fiddle with your clock radio, or your charge jack.

Makes sense.  I guess I just need to determine which outlet is supposed to be switched (top or bottom of the inverted duplex)
