Smart living

OpenMotics offers a free user-friendly mobile app for easy management and control of your home automation. Did you know you can even customise the application according to your needs and wishes?

Heating & cooling

Since Jana’s parents installed OpenMotics, it’s never too warm or too cold in the house. They chose to replace their room thermostat with a virtual thermostat to save money. By setting it to take into account school hours, the house is not heated unnecessarily. And Jana’s parents no longer need to worry about Jana re-setting the thermostat when they’re not looking.

Jana’s parents can also regulate the thermostat remotely. So last winter when they came back from their skiing holiday a day early, the house was pleasantly  warm.

With the ‘Heating & cooling’ package you have one (virtual) thermostat for your entire home that you can control via your tablet, smartphone or laptop.

Heating & cooling +

Sarah and Jan live with their two children, Lucas and Louis, in a renovated house. Sarah has her hands full with her two sons. Since installing OpenMotics multi zone heating, she has been able to organise her time more efficiently. Every Friday evening she turns on the heating in the bathroom via her smartphone before her boys go to sleep. She can then enjoy a wonderfully relaxing bath once she’s put them to bed.

Because the thermostats are programmed day-by-day, daily routines also become so much pleasanter. The house is nice and warm when the family gets up each morning. When they leave the house, the thermostat goes off automatically so the house isn’t being heated unnecessarily.

With the ‘Heating & cooling +’ package you have several (virtual) thermostats in your home so that you can control each zone separately.

Lighting

Lisa has recently moved into a studio on her own. The OpenMotics installation makes her studio unique and something to be proud of. She uses a pre-arranged scene that dims all the lights in her studio with one click of a button when her friends come around every Friday for an evening together.

She uses the push button at the front door of her studio as an ‘All off’ function so that all the lighting is switched off with one action.

The OpenMotics system also makes her feel safe. She has installed the ‘panic button’ next to her bed. When she presses the push button her bedside lamp together with all the lights in her studio go on. A useful trick for scaring off potential burglars. 

With the ‘Lighting‘ package you have the option to control your lighting via your smartphone tablet and not just via the push buttons.

Comfort

Lieve and Paul have lived in a loft by the sea since their retirement. Since the installation of the OpenMotics range, it is possible to control both their lighting and their heating in the living room remotely. This is ideal when they take a walk on a cold winter’s day and have a drink. Half an hour before they get home they switch on the heating via their smartphone so that they can warm up quickly after their winter walk.

They can also control the lighting remotely. When Paul remembers during their coffee break that Lieve has forgotten to switch off the light in the kitchen, this is done with one push in the app.

With the ‘Comfort‘ package you have one (virtual) thermostat for your entire home that you can control via your tablet, smartphone or laptop. In addition, also your lighting and not just via push buttons.

Comfort +

Julie and Jonas have recently moved into their new home. Since the installation of the complete OpenMotics Smart Living system, they can now automate and remotely control their lighting, heating, and airco.

Jonas works shifts as a welder and after a hard day’s work he really looks forward to a hot shower in a nicely heated bathroom. So before he goes to work, he programmes the heating in the bathroom so that it’s lovely and warm when he gets home.

There is an ‘All off’ button at the exit to their home. If Julie is the last to leave the house, she presses this button for a few seconds, so turning off all the lights in the house. This means that even on those busy mornings, she can be sure that all the lights have been switched off when she goes to work.

By the way, Julie and Jonas are real film buffs. To create the ultimate film experience they initialise the ‘movie scene’. They activate the scene via their smartphone when they’re watching TV, so all the lights in the living room are dimmed and only the LEDs behind the TV are switched on. Convenient right?

With the ‘Comfort +’ package you have several (virtual) thermostats, so you can control each zone separately via your tablet, smartphone or laptop. In addition, also your lighting and not just via push buttons.
