We decompose the crossed product functor for actions of crossed modules of locally compact groups on C-algebras into more elementary constructions: taking crossed products by group actions and fibres in C-algebras over topological spaces. For this, we extend Takesaki–Takai duality to Abelian crossed modules; describe the crossed product for an extension of crossed modules; show that equivalent crossed modules have equivalent categories of actions on C-algebras; and show that certain crossed modules are automatically equivalent to Abelian crossed modules.
