Energy saving comfort

This is our statement and our promise to our customers. It all started with the first staircase time switch developed by the company founder Paul Schwenk back in 1921. It continues to apply today to all our products, such as our Presence and Motion Detectors, as well as the worldwide standard KNX, Theben is proud to have made a significant contribution towards its development and ever growing success.

Behind each and every one of our products and systems is the idea of only using energy when it is absolutely necessary. Whether it be to adjust the heating and room temperature. Whether it’s to switch on lights or dim them when people in or around buildings need them to work comfortably or to see safely in the dark. This is how all of our products contributes towards energy efficiency and sustainable savings in energy use.
Anyone involved in planning and constructing buildings or who uses and installs our innovative products, is well aware of this fact. Thanks to this, the Theben name can boast an excellent reputation on a worldwide scale. The company has long been represented in over 60 countries around the globe. Alongside Germany, the group has its own subsidiaries in France, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Singapore.
The foundations of this success lie in the expertise of our employees whom we have to thank for the innovation and high quality of our products. Among them are bestsellers like the staircase time switch ELPA or the theben-timer, of which we have distributed 30 million of each over the decades. This also includes the invention of the Presence Detector in 1992 and the numerous rail-mounted devices in the top 2 range, with which Theben has become a market leader. In addition, Theben has set an example time and again in the area of KNX systems. However, first and foremost is the fact that Theben have as a consequence purposefully developed and expanded on their core competencies:


  1. Time, lighting, climate controls
  2. Presence and motion detectors
  3. KNX Home and building control systems
  4. Smart Meter Gateways


And that's not all: In our in-company testing laboratory, certified by VDE (German Institute for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies), we carefully examine each development from the very first idea, through prototype development, right up to start of production. Quality is something which we do not take for granted.
With a few exceptions, our entire product range is produced in Germany, at our headquarters in Haigerloch. During the manufacturing process itself, the 100% final inspection ensures that each of our products leaves our company in flawless conditions. The sum of all of these factors assures our clients that they have a reliable partner by their side who is open to new ideas. Theben is a leading premium supplier of intelligent solutions for saving energy and increased comfort inside and outside the building. This is what the Theben brand stands for.
