devolo Home Control update for Android: Now with full configuration

devolo has released the latest update for Home Control - in the form of a new app offering a wealth of new functions for Android devices. Now it is possible to configure scenes, rules, time control settings, groups and notifications right in the Home Control app. This update gives Android users the option of using the app to fully configure all of their Home Control system. In addition, devolo Home Control‘s "sunrise" and "sunset" triggers provide new time control functions for the smart home. All of the functions listed are also available for iOS users as of the most recent app update.

Everything via app: set-up, rules, scenes, time control settings and more

devolo has continued to add more functionality to the Home Control app with many large and small improvements since its launch. The latest app update for Android users now also makes it possible to set up rules, scenes, time control settings, device groups and notifications right in the Home Control app. While users did also have the option of accessing these services using the app before, they were automatically redirected to a browser-based version. The new functions make operating devolo Home Control even more convenient and intuitive for Android users.

New time control triggers: sunrise and sunset

devolo is also adding options for precise time control setting in this update. The new conditions now even make it possible to switch on individual components or groups at the exact moment of sunrise and sunset. This means countless new automation possibilities in the smart home. This feature allows lamps or other devices connected to Home Control to be switched on and off automatically. In addition, the new time programs can act as a control element for rules and scenes, adding even more flexibility to the smart home.
