KfW Support

KfW eligibility makes your product attractive for your customers

Almost all VdS-certified products in the field of security technology are eligible for KfW funding.

VdS-certification provides you with another powerful argument for marketing your security products. Which products are eligible for support is immediately visible on the VdS homepage by means of a corresponding marking of the VdS-certified products. KfW promotes measures to increase burglary protection in all aspects of home ownership. These include the installation of:

  • Burglar-resistant house, apartment and side entrance doors
  • Burglar-resistant garage doors and accesses
  • Retrofitting systems for house, apartment and side entrance doors, e.g. additional door locks, cross bolt locks with/without locking bar, rim locks
  • Retrofitting systems for windows and French doors as well as burglar-resistant grilles, folding and roller shutters and light well covers
  • Intrusion and hold-up alarm systems
  • Hazard warning systems and security technology in Smart-home applications with intrusion detection function

However, not all building security measures are automatically eligible for KfW funding, but must meet certain requirements. As a rule, this proof is provided by compliance with fixed standards. Accordingly, you prove that your product is basically eligible for KfW funding by means of VdS certification on the basis of certain VdS or EN guidelines.

By the way: All VdS guidelines always take into account the requirements of relevant DIN or EN standards. So you are always on the safe side with VdS certifications.

VdS certification can then be used to generate considerable sales and earnings opportunities. Because for your customers, KfW eligibility for funding means more than just a guarantee that they are investing in high-quality security technology. The subsidies granted by the KfW are the very incentive for your customers to tackle modernisation measures in the field of burglary protection.

Examples of VdS-certified and KfW eligible product groups are hazard warning systems in home applications, burglar alarm systems, opening detectors, motion detectors, glass breakage detectors, alarm transmission devices, as well as cross-bolt locks, locking cylinders, door shields, or additional locks.
