Cut standby power to zero with the flick of a switch

The EcoSwitch cuts the standby power usage of an appliance (or set of appliances on a power board) to zero with the simple flick of a switch. Now available in white or black (see drop-down menu above).

How much could you be saving?

Did you know? Standby power is responsible for about 10% of household electricity bills (link).

Here are some ways you can use the EcoSwitch standby power controller to reduce your standby power consumption and bills:

  • Switch off your computer, monitor and router when they’re not being used. Save 20 watts – about $30 per year.
  • Turn off your Foxtel pay television ‘box’ when you’re not watching TV. Save 30 watts –  about $50 per year.
  • Switch off your sound system’s sub woofer. Save 10 watts – about $15 per year.

If you are not sure where to start, use a plug-in power meter to identify your energy guzzlers.

Easily access your power outlets

You won’t need to crawl under furniture or fumble around amongst cords to save energy anymore… The EcoSwitch standby power controller enables you to move your power point to a convenient location.

The EcoSwitch is an extension cord of sorts, with a conveniently located “on / off” button. But, unlike other standby power controllers, this one has absolutely no standby power consumption of it’s own.

There is no need to configure wireless signals, replace batteries or lose yet another remote control. Just plug the EcoSwitch in and then use the green button to turn off all your standby!

Reduce your carbon emissions and fire hazards

Eliminating wasted standby power with just a few EcoSwitches around your home will save up to 800 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

The EcoSwitch standby power controller turns your connected devices off 100%. This reduces the risk of fire caused by appliances left on and unattended.

The standby power switch can be used to safety control the power usage of one or several appliances connected to a single power board. It is rated to control the full 2,400 watts (10 amps) delivered by regular electrical outlets.

A quality made Aussie invention

You may have seen the EcoSwitch a few years ago on the New Inventors. It was one of the most popular inventions of the year. It was also a finalist in ‘The Next Big Thing’ in 2009.

Some people have criticised the EcoSwitch. They say it’s not a real invention because it’s too simple(!)

It certainly beats most of the standby gadgets we’ve seen. It’s well designed and well thought out. And it costs less than $20.

The EcoSwitch standby power controller comes with self adhesive tabs to neatly install the button and cord.
