The home of the future is smart: At the 2014 Broadband World Forum (October 21-23, 2014, RAI trade fair grounds, Amsterdam), devolo will present devolo Home Control its smart home solution for retrofitting at the Z-Wave Alliance booth (F34). This system, based on the international Z-Wave® standard, is designed for end customers. During development, devolo placed particular emphasis on simplifying the retrofitting process and on home network integration. devolo Home Control offers users greater comfort, convenience, and security, and makes saving energy especially easy. Right at the start, devolo is offering a comprehensive range of sensors and actuators for all areas of your smart home.

Simple smart home solution for retrofitting

When it comes to its smart home range of products for Home Control, devolo focusses on simplicity: the system is easy for end customers to install and can be expanded or modified as desired at any time. Set-up and control of the system can be carried out via smartphone, tablet, and PC, and devolo provides an intuitive app for all current operating systems for this purpose. devolo Home Control can be operated from anywhere in the world through an Internet connection.

devolo Home Control relies on cutting-edge Z-Wave® technology

devolo relies on cutting-edge Z-Wave® technology to connect sensors and actuators. Their construction enables seamless communication between the individual components throughout the home without being obstructed due to structural conditions. At the same time, Z-Wave® offers a high security standard for end customers which also protects sensitive areas of the home. In addition to Z-Wave®, devolo also integrates dLAN® Powerline technology into the Home Control central unit - this enables efficient integration into the home network and is particularly attractive for the over 10 million existing devolo customers.

Comprehensive portfolio for convenience, security, and energy saving

Right at the start, devolo Home Control is designed to cover all relevant areas of the smart home. In addition to sensors and actuators for greater comfort, convenience, and security such as switchable electrical sockets, motion detectors, and smoke detectors, Home Control places particular emphasis on the area of energy saving. In collaboration with danfoss, devolo offers an intelligent heating control system that enables energy-efficient temperature control. The switch and meter socket can also be used to monitor the energy consumption of electrical devices intuitively.

Focus on intuitive home automation

When developing Home Control, devolo placed particular emphasis on the interaction between the sensors and actuators. This has resulted in an integrated home automation solution that helps users save energy while providing greater comfort and convenience. Therefore, you can use the software intuitively to link various components together in your intelligent home. For example, if the window is opened, the radiator switches off in the respective room. These smart home interactions can be created by users in no time and be refined by an additional time control system.
