Our goal is to save energy while saving you money. Save some Green with Ektos, and you will enjoy the benefits of a total service package — not just a box on the wall.

Our Mission

We strive to create the most advanced building automation systems and solutions on Earth, while building the most intuitive products for our customers. We believe the future of energy management requires better technology that is easier to understand and use.

Restaurants use the highest amount of energy per square foot of all commercial buildings. With our solutions, we can cut total building energy consumption by up to 25%. We have already saved an estimated $40 million in energy costs for our customers.

Ektos is a proud allied member of the Restaurant Facility Management Association.  We are committed to working closely with restaurant facility professionals to produce products that address needs unique to the restaurant industry.
