Information about time change

October 2018

Please be informed that the return to the standard time is coming up this weekend on October 28. As our devices register the time settings around midnight, the time change will not be registered until the next day.

This means that your time profiles will still use summer time settings on Sunday. However, this will be adjusted automatically the day after. Automations are not affected.

In case you do not want your sleep to be disturbed on Sunday morning, please pause your profile settings for that day by deactivating the automatic mode in the time profile.

New starter set alarm

The new starter set alarm evens works offline!

The advanced Homematic IP Security solution now comes along with a new starter set. The new starter set alarm consists of a Homematic IP Access Point, a Motion Detector with brightness sensor – indoor, a Window and Door Contact – optical as well as an Alarm Siren. Together, these devices offer reliable monitoring and alarming – even in case of Internet failure! Once activated, the sensors trigger an alarm even if the Homematic IP Access Point or the router may be destroyed. Via the Homematic IP Key Ring Remote Control – alarm you can also deactivate the alarm mode, if there is no connection to the Access Point.

The advanced Homematic IP security solution complements a second alarm mode: in the pro mode, the presence and absence mode can only be activated, if all sensors are in normal mode and within the radio range. This mode announces at the same time, if the system is ready for operation. If, for example, a window is still open, this is directly displayed in the app.

The security solution also enables the integration of Homematic IP Smoke Alarms, which can be used as an extension of the alarm.

Homematic IP Water Sensor coming in late July

This new smart device protects your home from water damage

You just wanted to do the washing quickly and then this happens: the basement is suddenly flooded. A scenario that happens quite frequently – for washing machine hoses seem to like breaking. Those who worry about water damage at home can soon relax: in late July, eQ-3 will be launching the long-awaited Homematic IP Water Sensor on the market. This smart device detects even the smallest of leaks reliably. With battery operation and spring-mounted measuring probes, the device can be used flexibly in any location within the home – perfect for basements, kitchens and bathrooms. If the water level reaches more than 1.5 millimetres, the sensor immediately sends a notification to the homeowner’s smartphone. A loud alarm is also triggered via an integrated siren. This can be a real salvation in emergencies: after all, water damage is a widely underestimated danger that can prove extortionately expensive. With the water sensor, you can react quickly and keep the damage to a minimum.

A home set up to be technically intelligent should be both comfortable and secure, in all areas. The new water sensor helps optimise security levels within homes. Manipulation of the sensor is virtually impossible: an inbuilt tilt sensor detects unwanted movement immediately and reports it. For operation, the Homematic IP Access Point (in connection with the Homematic IP smartphone app), the Homematic Central Control Unit CCU2 or an appropriate partner solution is required. The wireless technology means the water sensor can easily be integrated into existing smart home systems without the need for specialist installation. Instead, the device can be trained easily in the Homematic IP app and can also be configured there. Make your home safe and protect it against damage from water and humidity in just a few seconds!

Homematic IP Wired

Homematic IP Wired - The next smart home dimension

With this product range, we are bringing a complex solution onto the market which sets as yet unparalleled standards in home control. With Homematic IP Wired – as the name suggests – the devices communicate with one another through wired connections. This feature entails significant benefits, such as a high fault tolerance level, durability and immunity to interference in particular. The direct connection also makes the high speed transmission of data possible.

Despite the complex technology within the smart devices, Homematic IP Wired is extremely easy to control. This is a huge advantage for you as the end consumer and also for specialist companies. With Homematic IP Wired, you now have the ability to benefit from the emerging industry transformation as well. The devices are compatible with the Homematic IP wireless components and also with the classic Homematic solution (using a Central Control Unit CCU3). Combining the various product lines opens up whole new possibilities for building automation – both upon the first installation and when upgrading at a later date. Last but not least, the installation is worth it on cost grounds too: With Homematic IP, for the first time a new build can be equipped with smart home technology cheaper than with conventional electronics. This makes the system the ideal solution for your home.

Freedom of choice with Homematic IP Wired installation

In order to offer you various options, we have made the installation of Homematic IP Wired possible in two ways: On the one hand, the system can be installed using a purely local smart home Central Control Unit, the CCU3, in combination with the Homematic IP Wired Access Point. Configuration is then done easily via a web browser. In the second version, the wired system, as with the Homematic IP wireless solution, is operated via the Homematic IP cloud: For this, users connect to the cloud via the Homematic IP Wired Access Point. You can then configure and operate your system using the free smartphone app for iOS or Android locally from home or from anywhere else in the world.

Fault-tolerant, particularly durable home and building bus system

Homematic IP Wired is extraordinarily durable as regards sources of interference and enables the secure transmission of data at all times. The topology of the bus system through which the individual components are connected can be structured virtually as required. This means that even ambitious plans from professional installers can be implemented. For example, the Homematic IP Wired bus supports the ring topology structure in which the bus goes from the Access Point on from one to the next device and then back to the Access Point again. If the line is broken at any point, the ring topology is automatically converted to two independent bus lines so that the devices continue to operate without any delays. In addition to safety certification from the German Electrotechnology Association (VDE), we make no compromises when it comes to data protection either: The entire operation of Homematic IP Wired – regardless of whether via the cloud and app or the smart home Central Control Unit – does not require the provision of any personal data. Like Homematic IP, the system works completely anonymously and respects your privacy in an exemplary manner.
