Your smart home partner.

Who we are

As smart home experts, we know that choosing the right smart home system is a question of trust. Just as you don’t change your home from one day to the next, smart helpers should also make your life safer, more comfortable and more efficient for a long time to come. The company behind Homematic IP, eQ-3, is one of the leading businesses in the smart home market, with decades of experience. From beautiful East Frisia, our products have found their way into more than 2.5 million households. In 2021, we were named European market leader* in whole home systems for the sixth year in a row by the renowned Swedish market researcher Berg Insight.

With our smart products, you benefit from our over 40 years’ experience in home control. In 1978, Prof. Heinz-G. Redeker founded the company ELV in Leer, Lower Saxony, a special interest publisher and electronics mail order company that still operates throughout Europe today. Just one year later, ELV introduced the first microprocessor-controlled timer with four separately switchable sockets. Further products followed in the field of home automation. In 2006, eQ-3 AG was spun off from ELV Elektronik AG in order to bundle our expertise in the field of home control. Today, the ELV/eQ-3 group is still 100% family-owned and employs over 1,000 people, around 350 of whom work at our headquarters in Leer. More than 100 developers are constantly at work here to design new products, expand our product portfolio and add new functions to enhance your home. Production is carried out according to German quality and environmental standards in the group’s own factory in Zhuhai, China.
