Never again raising roller shutters by hand – this simple thought marked the start for elero in 1964. Since then the company name has been synonymous with a mission: making roller shutters, awnings, venetian blinds and rolling doors roll electrically at the push of a button. The Workshop from back then has become a global player that regularly sets new standards in home automation, whether in 1984 with the first electronic timer or in 1992 with the automatic controller that follows the yearly course of the sun. In 2009 elero presented the “ProLine 2”, the fi rst bidirectional Radio system with routing function. Centero has enabled the simple and convenient control of building services by smartphone or tablet PC since 2013. Today, over 50 years after the establishment of the company, elero employs over 400 staff with branches all over the world and is still as innovative as it was on the very first day.
