Home Control: More security, convenience and energy savings

Using components from the Home Control Starter Pack, which includes a Central Unit, Smart Metering Plug and Door/Window Contact, the versatile system can be expanded easily at any time. Up to 232 components can be coordinated by a single Central Unit. More than enough to automate a wide range of everyday operations, such as radiator and light controls.

Home Control becomes invisible: New flush-mounted components

At IFA 2016, devolo is presenting the new flush-mounted components, which will be available soon. The new Home Control components are installed into existing switches, dimmers and shutter or awning control systems and are connected directly and wirelessly to the Home Control Central Unit. The major advantage in doing so is that customers can continue to use their often expensive and visually coordinated switches, dimmers and electric shutter control systems. The Home Control components themselves remain completely invisible—for more security, convenience and energy savings.

Looking at the bigger picture: Home Control and third-party suppliers

devolo Home Control is already one of the most flexible Smart Home systems in the world. The developers, based in Aachen, Germany, have intentionally designed Home Control as an open system. Z-Wave-certified components from other manufacturers can be integrated. In addition, the number of partnerships with renowned manufacturers and software platforms, including Philips HUE and IFTTT, is continuously growing. This makes devolo Home Control a future-proof investment for your smart home.
