We make keeping the lights on work.*

*Ironically, you really only notice electricity when it’s not there. Whether your hair dryer has blown a fuse or your whole neighbourhood is blacked out, those rare moments make us appreciate the power we so often take for granted in our homes.

Power keeps our food cold, our water hot, our phones charged and our lives moving, 24/7. Which is why our residential portfolio helps keep power flowing safely and reliably, from the utility to the light fixture. Our circuit protection helps keep homes safe from fires and surges. Our xStorage Home energy storage system helps you shrink your household's carbon footprint, save on energy costs, reduce grid dependency and ensure energy security, safely and reliably. And our connected lighting, shading and ventilation control makes smart homes possible.

From the bare necessities to modern luxuries, power is a must, and we’re here to make sure it works.

Whether it's the simple necessities or modern luxuries, Eaton is always working hard to make sure that your power does, too.

We make homes of the future work.*

*Homes are now more connected and automated than ever. Smart technology makes life so convenient that even flipping a switch is becoming a thing of the past. Lights are programmable. Thermostats set themselves. TVs respond to voice commands. Home security systems will text you if there’s an intruder, or if your door is unlocked.

Eaton products are used to outfit homes for the needs of today and tomorrow. Our smart home controller transforms your phone into a remote for your entire home. An app lets you control connected lighting, thermostat, garage doors, locks or security systems. And our energy management system will allow you to manage your energy consumption in a cost-efficient manner without compromising your level of comfort.

The things that we're doing have a direct impact on keeping people connected, and that helps to simplify the average person's life. This is what I’m really passionate about.

We make story time work.*

*Few things are more comforting than cuddling up with a book or a loved one when it’s stormy outside. The security of our home gives us the freedom to escape, whether into a great story, a hot bath or a blanket fort. 

Rain or shine, day and night, Eaton is helping to keep your home safe and secure. From the utility switchgear that keeps power flowing into your home, to the surge protection devices that protect you against fire and shocks, to outdoor security systems, Eaton keeps homes safe from behind the scenes, along with everything that’s in them.

Lighting impacts the way people feel, so we are constantly thinking about how we can use technology to improve our products. It’s great to see how the things we create help people in their everyday life.

We make energy-efficiency work.*

*Every homeowner is on a budget—and they often face rising energy costs as a result of peak load charges, increased consumption or the time of use. The good news is, no matter the age or size of your home, and whether you charge your electrical vehicle (EV) at home or not, you can make it more energy-efficient, reducing your monthly bill and environmental impact.

Eaton is leading the way when it comes to energy-saving products. Our timers, heating and lighting controls help to further reduce energy consumption. Our complete energy management system enables you to store self-generated solar energy and avoid expensive grid energy peaks and higher tariffs—all without compromising on your level of comfort.

The world is getting more complex and homeowners have to manage ways to live more sustainably without giving up their comforts. We give people that balance through our technologies.
