C-Bus systems and the Schneider Point One Partnership

Our programmers have been using C-Bus technology for nearly 10 years, and in 2010 our company formally signed on as a Point One Partner with Schneider Electric NZ (SENZ). This formal partnership is a long term commitment by both parties to support each other and our customers. The partnership ensures that we live up to the standards and expectations of SENZ, and that SENZ provide us with 100% back up and support.

As part of this agreement we are able to offer an extended four year warrantee
on all Schneider C-Bus equipment that is installed by us and our Schneider
approved installers at no additional cost to our customer.
