The Embertec Emberplug™ AV is an advanced plug load management device that automatically shuts down audio video appliances that are wasting power – and money – when they are not being used, and turns them back on when they are needed. It addresses both standby and active power wastage. Active waste is when your TV and other electronics are left on but nobody is watching them.
As an intuitive device that reduces both standby and active power wastage, it produces maximum savings with zero effort – saving up to 486 kWh per year* approximately $76.93* by switching off audio video appliances that aren’t being used, and switching them back on again when they’re needed.
It works with all existing audio video environments.
The Embertec Emberplug™ AV is easy to install. It’s fast and simple. It can be used with all audio video equipment and complements any existing surge protection devices with additional surge protection.
Plug audio video equipment that can automatically be switched off – such as TVs, DVD players and stereos – into the ‘Power Saver’ socket. Plug audio video equipment that requires constant power for timers, program guides, and recording features into the ‘Always On’ sockets. Then plug into a wall outlet.
Then set the SmartSensor™, which allows you to set a time period of 1, 2, 3 or 8 hours before your audio video equipment will be powered down if not in use.
The Embertec Emberplug™ AV installation process is quick and easy and you’ll start saving power and money immediately.
