elero presents open and modular home automation system
From sun protection system control to the smart home
Smart controls are establishing themselves in the home environment in ever greater numbers. In this respect roller shutters and sun protection systems are right at the top of every construction client’s wish list. Centero Home is, therefore, the ideal entry-level solution for the creation of a smart home. The system communicates using radio (433 MHz and 868 MHz), infrared or IP, is easy and intuitive to operate, and right from the start it delivers bags of comfort. Marketed through the specialist trade, it is easy to set up, and can be combined with elero radio drives, receivers and sensors, and also with building technology products from other providers.
Open system with a large number of interfaces
Users can remotely operate, regulate and manage connected devices via a smartphone or tablet based on iOS and Android – while out and about for the day or from within their own four walls. Centero Home can be used in a cloud environment or locally over Wi-Fi. In addition to motorised sun protection, it is possible to integrate Philipps Hue lights, motion detectors, smoke alarms, window contacts, radiator thermostats and temperature sensors as standard. A weather service with a forecast is already integrated – ensuring the user is always kept up-to-the-minute.
Upgrade possibilities without any need for system change
With the in-app upgrade to Centero Home Plus end-users can unlock additional functions without the need for a hardware upgrade. Sonos home sound systems, Doorbird video door stations, Osram Lightify, Netatmo weather stations and other smart home applications can all be networked. And not least of all: Centero Home Plus may be controlled using Amazon Alexa.
