Over more than 30 years, the ELV/eQ-3 Group has developed from a technology pioneer into a European market leader in home control.
eQ-3 stands for innovation across a broad spectrum of technologies which, when combined with one another, represent a major leap in customer-oriented solutions. The field of home automation provides numerous examples of such solutions that make use of wireless technology and mechatronics, including electronic radiator thermostats. The eQ-3 Group has core know-how in battery operation, as well as in communication between two or more battery-operated devices. With its smart home products, eQ-3 is a market leader and, by integrating IPv6 into mass-market home control products, the company is already turning the oft-quoted vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) into a reality.
With more than 1000 employees, the ELV/ eQ-3 Group is one of the largest and fastest-growing employers in Germany’s East Frisia region.
We fulfil market requirements really quickly using state-of-the-art technology and proven development methods, and by maintaining close contact with the market and customers.
