About Us


Embertec is a leading energy efficiency technologies company. We specialize in power-saving products for the consumer electronics and appliances market utilizing a unique microprocessor controlled chip and supporting platform technology.

Our Tier 2 APS products are intelligent, reliable and easy to use. They reduce all forms of power wastage – including Standby power used by appliances when they’re switched off, and Active power used by appliances left on but not being used.

Embertec are the inventors of Active Powerdown® technology which addresses Active power waste in audio video and PC environments.

We are committed to two principles: technology that contributes to a better environment and groundbreaking research and development that raise the bar on what we offer consumers.

Embertec was founded in 2004 by a father and son team, Tony and Domenico Gelonese. Frustrated with his children leaving on the household TVs, DVD players and computers, Tony invented a product that turned the devices off when they were left on or in standby mode. His son saw the commercial opportunity in the invention – and so Embertec was born.

Embertec has since committed to an extensive research and development program. Embertec continues to develop new and exciting products to deliver energy savings to our customers.
