Solutions with a guaranteed future

The spirit of invention and entrepreneurial visions are like a golden thread that runs through the company chronicle of Busch-Jaeger. Proof of this are numerous technical inventions such as the first Edison lamp socket, the invention of the eccentric switch and the introduction of the dimmer. Busch-Jaeger continues to vigorously push ahead with energy-efficient and intelligent electrical installation technology. To this end the company continues to optimize and develop its systems for home and building automation to make them flexibly expandable at all times and a safe investment for the future.

Data security

Reliable protection for your data

With the advancement in intelligent networking of buildings, also the fear of data theft and manipulation in the Smart Home grows. To protect your data against theft, they are transmitted encrypted between the Smart Home system, mobile terminal device and myABB-LivingSpace. The security concepts have been created in cooperation between the Busch-Jaeger development and ABB research centres and are also regularly checked by the independent test facility, VDE-Prüf- und Zertifizierungsinstitut (VDE testing and certification institute), as well as additional IT security specialists with regard to the security of information. The chain of security measures is therefore continuously examined for weaknesses and options for improvement and adjusts itself continuously to the latest state of technology. However, IT security is an asset that cannot be guaranteed by the manufacturer alone. That is why we offer the electricians and planners of our Smart Home systems training sessions in which the secure installation and configuration of the systems is addressed. These professionals can then competently answer the questions of the end user and sensitize them for the secure handling of devices, apps and services. Through this control process of recurrent improvements, the IT security is lastingly guaranteed just as it has been in the sector of electrical safety for many years in the Busch-Jaeger tradition.

Quality made in Germany

Quality of the highest standard

The corporate strategy rests on four pillars: quality, environment, occupational safety and energy. These are continuously further developed and improved with an integrated management system. Busch-Jaeger does not view things in isolation, but sees all operational processes holistically. A complex task because, on the one hand, customer requirements are the focus, and, on the other hand, also occupational safety, effects on the environment and use of energy are of central importance. To do justice to all these aims, ISO standards were made the basis of management. All products and solutions conform to the high demands according to DIN EN ISO 9001∶2015. In addition, the company has the environment standard of the international standard DIN EN ISO 14001:2015. Busch-Jaeger was the first company in Germany to be certified by the EnergieAgentur NRW (energy agency) for the introduction of an energy management system conforming to DIN EN ISO 50001:2011. A clear scope for clear aims, because sustainability does not happen by itself. It is practiced at Busch-Jaeger.
