Marantec Group and CEDES enter into IoT Partnership

The Marantec Group and CEDES are teaming up in the field of IoT for doors and gates. The partnership was presented to the public at the world’s leading trade show R&T in Stuttgart (19th to 23rd February 2024) and involves Maveo, the proven IoT brand of the family-owned German company.

In this partnership, three pioneers in their respective disciplines come together: the Marantec Group as a specialist for drive and control technology, Maveo as an IoT specialist in the field of drives for garage and industrial door systems within the Marantec Group, and CEDES, a specialist in safety systems technology for entrance automation and elevator industries, bringing IoT sensor data domain expertise from the elevator industry.

CEDES, traditionally specialized in light barriers and optical sensors in the elevator and industrial door sector, has expanded its product range for industrial door safeguarding in recent years, taking over the door sensor specialist Vitector to build up know-how in this area.

This marks the official start of the cooperation with the Marantec Group in the direction of IoT.

The first step of the cooperation is the development of an IoT prototype that combines CEDES’ know-how in sensor technology and data analysis with Marantec’s longstanding expertise in drive and control technology as well as in IoT.

The project was presented for the first time at the world’s leading trade show R&T at the CEDES booth. This collaboration opens up numerous new application scenarios through the smart combination of existing technologies.

Andreas Schiemann (CEO Marantec Group) is enthusiastic about the cooperation:
“We are proud of the trusting relationship with CEDES. This is where two pioneers and leading companies meet on an equal footing to tap the full potential of a future technology. 
“CEDES is an expert in the field of sensor technology and we as the Marantec Group are experts in the field of drives and controls. 
“The perfect recipe for successful IoT cooperation. As an “Open Champion”, we are always open to exactly this kind of collaboration.”
Bernd Kagerer (President Entrance Automation CEDES) is excited about new opportunities that this cooperation opens up for the future:
“The combination of Marantec and CEDES can certainly serve as an example of a successful partnership in the door industry. 
“Both companies are open to expanding their cooperation. In this context, I welcomed the discussions at the R+T tradeshow.”


The CEDES Group offers its innovative solutions for elevators, escalators, industrial doors, and warehouse management systems in more than 60 countries.

It develops intelligent and safe sensing, control and communication systems that provide actionable data streams for higher operational and maintenance efficiency.

The product portfolio ranges from simple optical sensors, through highly complex 3D camera systems in cutting-edge ToF (Time-of-Flight) technology, to complete safety-related control systems and smart IoT-enabling devices.
