ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY MADE EASY

Individual indoor environment controls not only improve the comfort at home, they also help to save energy.

Smarthome describes the comprehensive networking of building services and household appliances. As a Smarthome user you have an integrated domestic control system at your fingertips with which you can control and automate numerous devices and appliances.

The technology involved is relatively complex yet very easy to operate. You control various devices/appliances by means of an app – for example, you can control the heating in individual rooms from wherever you are. And while you're out enjoying the sunshine, you can still keep an eye on the solar yield of your solar thermal system. You can also enable your local contractor to diagnose issues with your heating system remotely, making a special call-out unnecessary.

Your home just got smarter. Smarthome allows you to control many devices and appliances with the greatest of ease.

Set your own personal 7-day program: with Smarthome apps you determine when your bathroom is pleasantly warm and when you want to save energy, e.g. by reducing the temperature here during the day. In addition, you can do your bit to protect the environment and reduce your energy bills by conveniently reducing the temperature in your DHW cylinder from your mobile. And when you're away from home you won't need to keep the water hot enough to fill a bath.

In summer, you can set your ventilation system so that the building, which has been heating up during the day, can be cooled down with fresh night air. You can also increase the airchange rate during a party. With geofencing you can even set location-specific rules, for example if you haven't been home for several days. Your heating system always knows by GPS where you are at any time and automatically turns down your heating system when you're on a business trip lasting several days.

Tablet
Smarthome turns your mobile into an overall control system for your house. So you always know what's going on at home.

You can monitor your home around the clock using sensors and cameras. You can also control all of your domestic electronics, kitchen appliances and consumer electronics at all times. As part of this, individual components can be linked up. If required, you can design or change additional events. Your SmartHome adapts perfectly to suit you.

COSTS – IS THE SMARTHOME WORTHWHILE?

Greater convenience, increased security and lower heating bills. Smarthome offers intelligent solutions for many areas.

The costs for Smarthome are as varied as the application possibilities. If you want to control and monitor your heating and ventilation system remotely, you can do so with the free app. As a result, your heating system will only operate when it is actually required, enabling you to effectively reduce your heating bills.

Where several technical appliances are intended to communicate with each other, or you want to plan more complex events, you will need a separate control unit as well as different transmitters and receivers, which is invariably reflected in the cost. SmartHome-enabled devices, such as LED bulbs with a receiver, are often more expensive than conventional lighting. The additional technology will also be reflected in the price.

In many cases, you would need to equip your house or apartment with control units which are an additional expense. For lighting systems you require a bridge enabling different appliances to communicate with each other, whilst for heating systems you would need the corresponding interface modules and programming units. These also enable the heating system to go online.
In most cases, the initial purchase costs generally make it rather expensive to convert a house to a SmartHome. In the long run however, the increased efficiency and enhanced living comfort ensure that such investments will pay off.

Smarthome offers many benefits and opportunities. Nevertheless, there are a few points worth noting.

In order to be able to use Smarthome, you will need a web-enabled smartphone or tablet, as well as a control app. You will also need a local switching centre that connects all integrated appliances and devices, so that they can "talk" to each other. In many cases this is done wirelessly using WLAN and special wireless standards. However, please note that the switching centre should be compatible with as many appliances and devices as possible to enable you to extend your SmartHome without difficulty at any time.
