For the company’s hundredth birthday, Theben is presenting an anniversary edition of the legendary theben-timer 26 in three attractive special colours: yellow, light blue and salmon red. The analogue plug-in time switch was developed as early as 1977. Since then, with over 33 million devices sold worldwide, it has become a bestseller in Theben's product range.
We are fully convinced of the qualities of our theben-timer. That is why we give you a whopping 100-year guarantee on the special edition devices. These are manufactured at the company's headquarters in Haigerloch, Swabia, and are therefore “Made in Haigerloch”.
* If, against all probability, the guarantee case occurs within the next 5 years despite proper use, we will be happy to exchange your theben-timer 26. In the unlikely event of a warranty claim within the next 95 years, you will receive an adequate replacement. In whatever technological form. Maybe already with WiFi. Have fun with your theben-timer 26.

When no one thought of automating and smart control of the home, theben-timer already offered the option of controlling switching processes based on time. That was in 1976. Whether it was floor lamps, televisions, coffee machines, radios, alarm clocks or aquariums. With the small plug-in timer, a wide variety of loads could be switched on and off safely and reliably. Hardly anything has changed in the simple operating concept in over 40 years. Why? Because it works. And really well!
Theben-timer offers you a plus in convenience. It is better to be gently woken up by your favorite music and the smell of coffee than by an annoying beeping alarm clock. Go on vacation, simply program several time switches in the house with different times. In this way you can design a simple type of presence simulation, similar to what is available today with modern smart home systems: the house appears to be inhabited from the outside and is protected against break-ins. You can also use theben-timer to reduce power consumption, as devices are not permanently in power-guzzling standby mode.
In the past it was mainly about radio alarm clocks, coffee machines or aquarium lighting, today voice assistants such as Alexa in the children's room can also be safely switched off using theben-timer. You can also switch off WiFi routers or repeaters easily and safely overnight without having to think about them all the time. An important aspect in times of increasing wifi radiation exposure. The traditional use of switching the Christmas tree or Advent lighting on and off continues to this day.
“With over 33 million copies sold, our theben-timer is synonymous worldwide with our high product quality and reliability. We are particularly proud of stories about devices that have been in daily use for over 40 years. We are certain that the theben-timer will continue to live on as a tried and tested analogue classic in an increasingly digital environment."
