Astrel. History, and the future

Active for over thirty years in the electronics sector, Astrel is involved today in the development of devices for the “digitalizaton” of living and work environments.

“Active” is the key word for all the IoT technologies that enable us to “activate” the world we live in.

All our IoT devices and systems can be “layered” over any kind of electrical installation so as to render it “active” and capable of communication.

We specialize in IoT devices and ecosystems for the home and building sectors: smart home, photovoltaic, energy saving, climate control, monitoring and safety in the environments where people live and work.


At Astrel, all Research & Development and manufacturing operations are carried on in-house. This is a strategic choice, designed to achieve the shortest possible lead times from technologically innovative idea to marketable product, while ensuring maximum levels of quality, flexibility and efficiency.

And when selecting suppliers, we favour Italian companies: a policy intended to guarantee quality, flexibility and local synergies, with enormous benefits for people and the environment.
