The name Schwaiger is familiar to technology fans. This long-established German company’s success came from satellite television. True to their slogan “Everything from a single source”, their products range from offset antennas, LNBs and SAT distributors to set top boxes and cabling. DIY and specialist stores stock more than 1,800 individual Schwaiger products as well as the large selection of aerial equipment and modern satellite reception technology. The company also offers installation equipment as well as wall and ceiling mounts – in short, everything you need for today’s television experience.
Founded in 1946 in Langenzenn, Germany, the medium-size company is at the forefront of a new development: intelligent home automation. “Customers can now control networked items such as heating, lighting, and window blinds directly from their smartphone and tablet,” explains Managing Director Mike Tänzler. According to a study by auditors and consultants PwC, home automation is a growing sector: By 2030, one in three newly-built or renovated houses will feature automated and networked electronics, heating and/or air conditioning.
