Centero Home is the ideal point of entry into the world of the smart home. The central control unit (gateway) is connected by WiFi to the home router and connects all the taught-in devices to form one system. Operation is manual or automatic with an iOS® or Android™ app. The Centero Home system can be used outside of the home’s WiFi network via the cloud as well as locally. The user-friendly and intuitive operation by smartphone or tablet is convincing for both construction clients and modernisers.
Switching luminaires on and off, dimming them and adjusting the colour temperature as required - this makes a decisive contribution to living comfort.
The Philips Hue lighting system is taught-in in just a few simple steps via the Centero Home app... and you control the smart light for your home with a tap.
The roller shutters in the bedroom are opened punctually at 7.30 a.m., the light is switched off. Such processes can be easily stored as tasks. Using the calendar function, they can, for example, be taken over for all working days or excluded for holiday periods.
You define critical devices yourself - these are applications you want to be informed about. This is useful for opening detectors and terrace awnings, for example. The start screen shows a warning symbol when a window is open or the awning is extended.
The In-app-upgrade to the Plus version offers additional functions and applications that make the home even smarter. The In-App purchase can be easily carried out via the menu item "Settings" of the basic version Centero Home.
Afterwards the comfortable voice control of the taught-in devices is available with the digital assistant Amazon Alexa and controls, for example, lighting or privacy and sun protection by voice command. Music lovers also use WLAN-based sound systems from Sonos. This allows the user to control the sound via an app - room by room or comfortably throughout the house.
If a Netatmo weather station is integrated into the system, personal weather data can be displayed in the Centero Home Plus.
A safe feeling is provided by the use of a Doorbird video door station, which can also be connected to Centero Home Plus. This makes it possible to see and talk to visitors before the door is opened. This also helps prevent burglaries.
A Netatmo weather station integrated into the system can display weather data such as temperature, CO² content, humidity, etc. in the Centero Home Plus.
With a Doorbird video door intercom system, visitors can be seen before the door is opened. This also helps to prevent burglaries.
With Sonos WLAN-based sound systems, the user simply controls his music via an app - individually room by room or comfortably throughout the house.
There are two different apps which differ in significant points.
Please read carefully the short introductions for the two apps “Centero Home” and “Centero Connect” and then choose the suitable app for your application.
In the CenteroHome app, you have the option of extending the range of functions to the Centero Home Plus version by purchasing via in-app (further information here)!
With the Centero Home app, the Centero Home Gateway and elero radio-controlled products you can operate roller shutters, venetian blinds, awnings, lighting, patio heaters and many other devices conveniently and reliably using your smartphone or tablet – regardless of whether you are at home or on the move. The smart home control device can be expanded very simply using third-party products such as those from Somfy RTS or HomeMatic. You can see in a visual form the status of the connected devices at any time and anywhere – and thus be certain that everything is okay at home. Centero Home combines the benefits of the bidirectional radio system Proline 2 from elero with mobile and user-friendly operation by smartphone or tablet. Centero Home is integrated into the WLAN home network and converts the commands received from a smartphone or tablet into radio signals. It automatically activates tasks and defined scenes, sending feedback as an e-mail or push message to the mobile device.
The Centero Connect app is only required for initial setup by elero specialist partners!
This is used to commission the Centero Home Gateway one time only, to teach in the elero radio receivers and store them in a configuration. The configuration is then transferred to the gateway. To this end neither the WLAN password nor an end-user device is required. After initial configuration, Centero Connect is disconnected and can no longer be used on this gateway. This enables a quick setup and also acts as security feature for the end user.
The Centero Home app is thereafter required to operate the elero radio receivers and so as to teach in and operate other devices; the Centero Home app has to be installed on the end-user’s device (smartphone or tablet).
In order to install the two apps go to this page with an internet browser on your smartphone or tablet and click on the respective link to the operating system on which you wish to install the app(s). You can also download and install the app(s) at any time directly in the App Store or Google Play Store.
In the event that you require help with the installation and/or configuration of Centero Home, we have made available instructions for the two apps here as PDF files. Please click on the respective logo.
