Homematic – a whole house full of great ideas
Homematic is the smart home system manufactured by eQ-3. It enables comprehensive control of various functions – from simple to complex scenarios in houses or flats. Besides increasing the level of comfort and security in homes, another of the system’s main benefits is the way in which it considerably reduces energy costs. This is why Homematic solutions will have typically paid for themselves in full after only a few short years, since they allow for the demand-based room-by-room control of radiators, for example.
The wide portfolio of more than 80 devices includes products for light, shutter and radiator control, with the range being rounded off by hazard alarms, safety sensors and products for measuring weather data. Thanks to the fact that the devices communicate via radio, they can be retrofitted into houses really easily, whilst wired-bus components are ideal for installations in new buildings.
Homematic can be set up using the browser-based user interface of the Homematic CCU2 Central Control Unit. The system can be controlled from within the local network as well as via the Internet. The software offers various configuration and application possibilities, so that there are no limits to creativity.
Homematic’s open interfaces make it possible to integrate software and hardware solutions provided by partners. These include apps and cloud services offered by partners on an independent basis for controlling Homematic via smartphone and tablet.
The most significant technical advantages at a glance:
- Interference immunity and excellent range: As Homematic is based on the 868 MHz radio band, the system combines a large wireless range with high resistance to interference. Reliable communication between Homematic devices is guaranteed over a distance of several hundred metres. There is no interference whatsoever from WLAN, video streaming or other users of 2.4 GHz.
- Reliability: All Homematic devices offer bi-directional communication. As radio commands are confirmed by the respective receiver, particularly high reliability is achieved, which offers a crucial advantage over uni-directional systems. Furthermore, the current status of all devices can be clearly shown at any time.
- Security: Secure communication between Homematic products is ensured thanks to universally accepted standards (AES-128 technology) that are also used in online banking, for example. eQ-3 believes that security isn’t just an option in a smart home system – it’s its very foundation.
- Battery operation: The Homematic wireless protocol is optimised for battery-operated devices. The products can be easily screwed on to radiators or stuck to walls. Thanks to the low energy consumption of the devices, batteries usually only need to be replaced every two years, or even less frequently. This is a particular strength compared to other technologies.
