Heating and air-conditioning
Providing comfort and energy-saving. The optimum room
temperature can be adjusted with [email protected]® according
to the specific requirement, depending on the time of day and
the function of the room. In ECO mode, the temperature is
automatically lowered at night or when the house is empty.
The heating can be automatically shut off when a window is
open, this reduces the consumption of energy – whether for
conventional heaters or in floor heating. The temperature can
be perfectly adapted to your personal rhythm of life. In the
morning, the bathroom is already preheated. During the day,
the rooms are unheated when no one is home. And when you
get home at night, a comfortable living room awaits.

[email protected]® | The possibilities 19
Present and yet not at home
Presence simulation
Everything in perfect order at home. [email protected]® can bring
life into rooms that are unoccupied. The system stores the habits
of the residents while they are at home and then calls them up
during their absence.
Remote control for everything
Always a good feeling. The presence simulation of
[email protected] ® records the weekly operating sequence of
the devices. This means that its response is completely the
same whether the residents are present or absent due to a
business trip, away for holidays or gone shopping. Using the
app on the smartphone, a safety check of the home is possible
from a remote location anywhere in the world.
20 The possibilities | [email protected]®
Presence simulation
For greater safety. With [email protected] ® the home appears
to be occupied even when no-one is at home. Whether in the
evening when visiting the theatre or during a holiday lasting
a few weeks – the system can mimic the daily routine of the
residents. Such simulation helps to prevent break-ins.
Automatic weather protection
During windy weather or storms, [email protected]® together
with a conventional weather station takes care of the
independent upward movement of the blinds. This prevents
damage such as buckling of the slats or broken windows.
This function is of particular benefit when no-one is at home
because weather can change unexpectedly.
[email protected]® | The possibilities 21
Everything off with a single function

All networked devices are simultaneously switched off in all
rooms. Aside from safety, this also benefits energy efficiency.
22 The possibilities | [email protected]®
The all-off function is especially practical at the bedside.
Before falling asleep the entire lighting in the house can be
switched off with just a press of a button. A very practical
function to ensure comfort and safety.
Everything off. Stove, lights, heating,
television or the iron in absence mode.
A reassuring feeling.
Near and far
The central switch for the all-off function can be located
on the wall near the front door and, of course, at any other
location in the house. For mobile use it can be displayed in
the app on the smartphone or tablet.
[email protected]® | The possibilities 23

30 The advantages | [email protected]®
Advantages. From planning to efficient
operation. Reduced installation time
saves costs and the integration
sustainably increases the value of
any property.
[email protected]® | The advantages 31
The perfect plan
Possible and affordable
It also impresses professionals. Not only do the numerous
functions and unlimited possibilities speak for [email protected]®,
the system also distinguishes itself due to the ease with which it
can be integrated into every architectural environment.
Ideal for new buildings
[email protected]® requires no additional construction. The
walls are already open for the electrical installation – which
means that the bus cable can simply be added. The system
needs no special cable routings or its own installed cable
ducts. Easy to plan for electrical contractors.
32 The advantages | [email protected]®
Economical right from the start
When compared with conventional home automation
[email protected] ® is worth every cent of its price. Due to the
reduced effort required during planning and installation the
overall costs for [email protected] ® remains affordable. The
system saves time and cost, as well as energy during operation.
A safe investment –
a global standard
Value-adding and energy-saving
[email protected]® raises the value of real estate due to the increase
in comfort and improved energy efficiency. The installation cost
soon pays for itself. When compared to the total cost of a newly
constructed house it generally amounts to around 1%. Energy
use can be reduced with [email protected]®. With intelligent blind
control the optimum room temperature can be maintained using
less energy. Generally reducing the room temperature by 1°C
saves around 6% of energy.
Always affordable
For a three bedroom home, an [email protected] ® system
including switching and dimming of lights, scene and group
controls, time schedules and smart device controls can already
be implemented from $5,000, plus the costs for the standard
installation, such as the provision of cable and outlets and
commissioning by an electrical contractor.
Environmentally friendly
with certificate
All devices for [email protected] ® are
manufactured ecologically compatible –
according to the RoHS ordinance.
