Theben products mostly work unseen. On the other hand, you can't miss their effect: in energy-efficient heating and air conditioning control, astronomic time control or presence-dependent lighting control.
This project involved the planning and installation of an intelligent home automation system for a disabled woman in Leicester, England. Based on the advice and experience of the installation partner Design Innovation, this involved implementing technologies such as intelligent lighting, heating and cooling systems, automatic doors and windows, multi-room audio, distributed video, access control, alarm systems, CCTV including all the necessary electrical work.
The new lighting system at Albert Schweitzer Elementary School in Didam, Netherlands, saves a lot of energy and at the same time ensures that the children are more attentive in class. The Human Centric Lighting (HCL) installation always provides the exact amount and colour of light that students need at the specific time of day. DALI 2 sensors from Theben also automatically switch on the lighting whenever presence is detected.
Next to the railway station in Grünstadt in southern Germany stood, until recently, an unused Deutsche Bahn office building in great need of renovation. Built before 1900, the brick building housed offices and social rooms for the station's employees and lay derelict for about 15 years. Today, the building houses a day care centre for people with mental disabilities. The KNX system for building automation integrates, among other things, presence detectors and motion detectors to control the lighting as well as room controllers to control the room temperature and operate the panic function.
Fibremax knows cables and wires like no other. The manufacturer of the strongest lifting and fastening cable in the world now also relies on perhaps the most intelligent data cable: the KNX bus. In the new production and storage hall in Joure, the light only comes on when it is needed. In this way, the company saves energy and avoids cable clutter. The combination of strong and intelligent suits Fibremax perfectly.
A luxurious beach club at a unique location on the Leijsenven in Boxtel. This is what Patrick van Loosbroek, owner of the Lseven, had in mind in 2020. What had previously served as a restaurant, but also as a dance hall and swimming pool, was now to become a place for luxurious dining. The realisation of this large-scale project required solutions for the special technical challenges.
Hardly any other major project in Zurich has attracted as much attention in recent years as the Police and Justice Centre (PJZ). The efficient use of energy is ensured by KNX in combination with over 2,800 presence detectors from Theben HTS.
The circulation areas of the Hospital Centre in Biel, Switzerland, were originally conventional lighting using compact fluorescent lamps in continuous operation and have been refitted with Ledvance LED panels and Theben presence detectors. Every presence detector controls lighting groups with 2-4 LED lamps in each. The result: an 82% energy saving compared to the previous lighting, with an increase in lighting strength from 40 to over 200 lux. 54% of these savings can be attributed to presence-dependent lighting control.
KNX system and energy monitoring offer savings as well as greater comfort and safety
Housing association Woonborg has built new residences in two locations in the Netherlands: 36 in Nieuw-Roden, part of the Drenthe municipality, and 32 in Haren, an area in the City of Groningen. When it came to energy efficiency, the association took into account not only the mandatory NZEB (nearly zero-energy building) standard, but also the ZOM (zero-on-the-meter) standard, which imposes stricter requirements.
When you see the new building for the “Die kleinen Strolche” nursery in Empfingen, southern Germany, you’d be forgiven for wanting to be a child again!
The Caveau du Château of the Guigal family is located in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie wine-growing region. The dedicated wine venue was equipped with complex lighting scenes using Theben KNX products
What was supposed to be harmless surgery after a hernia ended up badly for Sylvia Krosse. By sheer misfortune, complications led to paraplegia. From that moment on, it was a long way for her and her family to be able to lead a „normal“ family life again.
A KNX-based smart home system based on Theben KNX products is delivering more comfort and better energy efficiency in a new-build family home in the small Swabian town of Empfingen in Germany.
Historic building meets state-of-the-art cloud technology: Theben’s TC 649 C control box supports cloud-based remote control for heating systems and outdoor lighting for a church building that is almost 200 years old.
As part of its responsibilities for the room and building automation functions at the new Axel Springer building in Berlin, Sauter-Cumulus GmbH began a search for a ceiling-installed DALI presence detector to include in the lighting control concept. In addition to compatibility with DALI technology, the company had one specific requirement in mind: an elegant, minimalist design that would blend effortlessly into the building’s interior.
't Gasthoês is a multifunctional community centre in the Dutch municipality of Horst aan de Maas. The former hospital, which was built in 1901, was turned into an arts centre in the 1980s. Last year, the building was completely gutted and refurbished in order to prepare it for a whole host of new functions. Today, the centre includes a large theatre, a library, reception and workshop spaces and a restaurant. Theben technology was chosen to take care of switching, dimming and smart control of the LED lighting.
The Andreas Tower, with its 22 floors and a height of 80 metres, is the new landmark above Oerlikon railway station. From this place, also Amstein + Walthert AG has an outstanding view. They are anchor tenants in the new building, for which they were involved as
general contractor by supplying the modern building technology. Thanks to around 540 intelligent KNX passive infrared presence detectors from ThebenHTS, employees will have the right light in any environment.
The 635 meter high Menara PNB 118 skyscraper in the heart of Kuala Lumpur impressively demonstrates how recognized the KNX standard in building automation is worldwide. When completed in 2024, it will be the tallest building in Malaysia. But even the intrinsic values convince: KNX products will ensure comfortable and reliable building automation.
Intelligent building and room automation allows a building to be controlled with ease – and makes it smart. And the fact that you don't need much hardware at all to do this is clearly in evidence at the AMTS in the Swiss municipality of Muttenz, which makes use of thePrema P360 KNX premium presence detectors from ThebenHTS.
Presence detectors are just a matter of course in buildings for years as light switches. The quality differences are however, tremendous. For the new construction of a representative and highly-functional building in Lüdenscheid, Germany, detectors were required that did not only offer versatile functions and a high degree of measuring accuracy, but also have an appealing exterior.
With the high-quality extension of the private villa in Bauhaus style in Metzingen near to Stuttgart, the customer had fulfilled a long-cherished desire. Naturally, for this dream house not only the highest demands are made with regard to architecture and interior design, but also on the technical side. The result can proverbially be seen: in the magazine „Schöner Wohnen“, the house was awarded the 3rd place in the competition „Home of the Year 2012“.

A new logistics property at the Rhein Lippe harbour is ultra-modern, sophisticated and energy-efficient. A sophisticated lighting system based on DALI lighting control and Theben presence detectors was developed for the 80,000 square metre hall.Learn more
"The last one turns off the lights" and "Close the windows, we're not heating the street," such appeals have long been the only known energy efficiency measures in schools. The effect was limited. Modern and largely automated building technology is more promising. An extension to the school in Hirrlingen proves that this is feasible even on a tight budget. Multi-sensors from Theben and cleverly programmed KNX automation ensure the economical use of energy and at the same time a child-friendly feel-good climate.Learn more
