22 Mar New product launch – Smart roller shutters and garage door controller
We celebrate the first days of spring with even more supported products and functions in our application. We are now happy to inform you that we can now control both roller shutters and garage doors straight from the Futurehome app. This means that blinds, awnings, screens, lamellas, grilles, and your garage door can become smart!
Smart Roller Shutters
Roller shutters for your house is an energy effective way to adjust indoor climate and comfort. Although we are very much looking forward to summers arrival, it is also nice to be able to sit in the shade and avoiding overheating inside. To be able to control your roller shutter through Futurehome, you need a regular motor that is controlled from a wall switch, our controller will then be placed in the back of this. You are not dependent on having a wall switch, but it is suggested for the ease of use.
Remember that when controlling your screens, you should always keep them all the way up or all the way down. If the cloth is in the midle of the window, the window can burst due to large temperature changes.
If you already have a Futurehome Smarthub, you only need the Fibaro’s Roller Shutter 2 to be able to control your roller shutters.
Smart garage door
With the new integration in the app and a remote control, you have full overview of your garage door. Most garage doors on the market is controlled by this remote and it connects to the garage door opener where you would normally connect the switches. In addition, the control unit has a tilt sensor that is to be mounted on the door. This sensor will tell you wether the gate is closed, open, if its going up or down.
If you already have a Futurehome Smarthub, you only need the Aeotec Garage Door Controller to be able to open your garage from the Futurehome app:
