Building Automation since 1921: Theben celebrates its 100th anniversary

In 1921 our founder Paul Schwenk established the company “Spezialfabrikation elektr. Schaltgeräte". That was the hour of birth of today's Theben AG. That must also be celebrated in these special times. For example, with a look back that has many touching moments in store. Celebrate “100 Years of Building Automation” with us in the coming year. And tell us your personal Theben story. We are looking forward to it.

Highlights 01|2021 – Bright. Airy. Precise.

Theben stands for "Building Automation". For technologies and products that help to reduce energy consumption while being easy to use and safe. For energy at the right time. And that for exactly 100 years. This is exactly where many of our new products come into play: For example, the new mobile CO2 sensor or our proven top3 series, which are now also available as a flush-mounted version with all the known advantages.

Ventilate properly: CO2 sensors from Theben

CO2 sensors from Theben monitor the CO2 concentration in schools and classrooms, in offices and conference rooms or in passive and low-energy houses. CO2 sensors thus make a decisive contribution to indoor air quality. On this page you will find information about the CO2 concentration in the room air and its effects as well as needs-based and energy-efficient ventilation control with the help of CO2 sensors.

LUXORliving – The mother of all smart home-systems

What do we actually understand by smart home? That our house is intelligent? That it thinks along? Thinks ahead? That it is future-proof?

The answers are many and varied. This little film explains what we at Theben understand by a smart home system and why we offer a future-proof and investment-safe system with KNX as the basis of LUXORliving.

Start the film: This is what a future-proof smart home system looks like!

Looks great, works great: iON room controller
