[email protected]® | The freedom 09
Free choice
To live life as desired
Smart. [email protected]® transforms the house or the apartment into an intelligent home. Whether blinds, lights, heating,
air-conditioning or door communication – comfort, safety and
efficiency can finally be controlled remotely. Via a switch on
the wall or with a smartphone.
10 The freedom | [email protected]®
Open for new ideas
With [email protected]® all functions in the house can be managed automatically – according to time plan, temperature and
movement detector – or be called up at the touch of a button.
And here, every combination of the various functions is possible.
Door communication
Many advantages for operation
More pleasant living. The [email protected]® home automation
makes daily life easier. With the right app, you can use your
smartphone or tablet as a remote control at home. In the morning, you can raise the blinds at the press of a button without
leaving your bed and switch on the radio in the kitchen – or
switch off all the lights and appliances at once when you
leave the house. Optionally, a conventional wall switch will
serve the purpose as well. Setting these scenes is also
conceivably simple. Simply comfortable. Simply practical.
Simply energy-efficient.
[email protected]® | The freedom 11
Total network
Blinds, lights, heating, air-conditioning,
door communication
Comfortable right from the start. It begins with commissioning
and continues later when used as a part of daily life. With
[email protected]® all applications in and around the house are
amazingly easy to combine.
Whether blind, roller blind, awning or roller door – with the
[email protected] ® home automation, sun protection and
energy-saving could not be easier. Opening and closing as
well as adjustment of slats can be controlled with a switch,
[email protected] or app for smartphone or tablet. In
addition, a conventional weather station for protection during
a storm, a timer or astro function can be used. It automatically
adjusts the blinds according to sunrise and sunset.
» » Flexible options for control
» » Storm, rain and wind protection
which responds to the weather
»» Simple operation
»» O ptimised energy efficiency due to
improved insulation when the blinds
are lowered
»» Optimum timing
Blind switch
Ready for all operating modes. With either a short or long press
of the button for roller blinds, exterior blinds or awnings as well
as adjustment of slats. Together with a wind sensor the roller
blinds, exterior blinds and awnings close up completely and
are locked during high wind.
12 The freedom | [email protected]®
Light control
Life begins with light. With [email protected]® it can be optimally
used, whether for illuminating individual rooms or the entire
house. For example, with striking light scenes – for different
moods and to suit the occasion. A pleasant side effect here
is the cost-saving and environmentally friendly use of energy.
»» Easy-to-adjust light scenes
»» Central or remote control
»» Fast activation of emergency lighting
»» Support of energy efficiency
»» Flexible use
Dimmer and movement detector
With [email protected] ®, rooms or entire buildings can be
illuminated according to your requirements. Each situation
receives suitable light – whether striking light scenes or
emergency lighting. All lights are switched on at once.
[email protected]® | The freedom 13
Heating and air-conditioning
Providing comfort and energy-saving. The optimum room
temperature can be adjusted with [email protected]® individually or 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 timing of the temperature can thus be perfectly adapted
to your personal rhythm of life. In the morning, for example,
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 you.

14 The freedom | [email protected]®
Door communication
The ABB-Welcome door communication system can be
integrated into [email protected]®. The door communication and home automation can be used together with
[email protected] 7". For example, the light switches
come on when the doorbell rings to see visitors more clearly.
And for safety reasons, the video camera records pictures
of visitors at the door when no one is home.

door is unlocked
Picture directly on the display
Practical and convenient. The picture from the video camera
can be displayed on the tablet or smartphone via the Welcome
app. This allows visitors who ring the bell to be recognised
even when you are not at home (requires ABB-Welcome IP
gateway and an ABB-Welcome outdoor video station).

[email protected]® | The possibilities 17
Atmosphere at the press of a button
With a personal comfort scene
The perfect evening after a day at work. [email protected] ®
prepares a pleasant reception when arriving at home. With
a colourful display of light and ambient room temperature.
Precisely the right atmosphere for relaxing.
Fast change of scenes
A single press of the button on the switch, on the
[email protected], smartphone or tablet suffices
to call up a complete scene. This, for example, allows
a living room to be transformed in a matter of seconds
to suit an occasion – for welcoming guests or for a
pleasant evening of relaxation.
18 The possibilities | [email protected]®
Simply one’s own scenes
To create or change individual scenes is as easy as child’s
play with [email protected] ®. An intelligent assistance function
helps to put together the desired tasks. For example, lamps
and a specific position of the blind plus room temperature
can be called up at the press of a button.
Networking as desired. Different functions
can be combined for scenes.
[email protected]® | The possibilities 19
Present and yet not at home
With presence simulation
Everything is in perfect order at home. Because [email protected]®
brings life into rooms that are at times unoccupied. For this 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 sequence of the
devices. This means that its response is completely the
same whether the residents are present or absent because
of a business trip, away for holidays or gone shopping. Using
the app on the smartphone, a safety check of the entire 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 seems
to be occupied even during one’s absence. Whether in the
evening when visiting the theatre or during a summer holiday
lasting a few weeks – the system can learn and imitate the
daily routine of the residents. Such simulation helps to prevent
Automatic protection against wind
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 window panes. This
function is of particular benefit during one’s absence because
weather can change unexpectedly.
[email protected]® | The possibilities 21
Everything off with a single function
The simplest type of switch-off. [email protected]® offers it with
the everything-off function. It is especially practical when leaving
the house. It simultaneously switches off all networked devices
in all rooms.
Be assured
In principle the everything-off function works just like a preset
scene. In this case all networked devices are simultaneously
switched off in all rooms. Aside from safety, this also benefits
22 The possibilities | [email protected]®
energy efficiency. The everything-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 everything-off function can be located
on the wall near the front door and, of course, at any other
location in the house. And for mobile use it can be displayed in
the app on the smartphone or tablet.
[email protected]® | The possibilities 23
The entire house under control
Simply in the network
Comfortable and user-friendly. [email protected]® is very
easy to operate. It enables the blinds, lighting, heating,
air-con­dition­­­ing and door communication to be controlled from
near and far via computer, tablet or smartphone. And with the
[email protected] also from a central location in the house
or as usual via a switch on the wall.
24 The possibilities | [email protected]®
Perfectly connected

30 The advantages | [email protected]®
Advantages. From planning to efficient
operation. As a result, initial installation
by an electrician 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 electricians, because the conductor
routing does not determine the function.
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 financially
within the realm of the inexpensive. 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 each piece of real estate
due to the increase in comfort and improved energy efficiency.
The low cost of acquisition soon pays for itself. When compared
to the total cost of a newly constructed house it generally
amounts to around 1 per cent. Also the cost of energy can be
deliberately reduced with [email protected]®. For example, with
the intelligent control of the blinds the optimum room temperature can be maintained with less energy. Generally the reduction
of the room temperature by 1 degree Celsius saves around
6 per cent of energy.
Always affordable
For a three-room apartment according to HEA 1-Stern-plus*, an
[email protected] ® system including lighting, heating and blinds
can already be implemented from 2,800 euros, plus the costs
for the standard installation, such as the provision of cable and
outlets and commissioning by an electrician.
Environmentally friendly
with certificate
All devices for [email protected]® are
manufactured ecologically compatible –
according to the RoHS ordinance.
