Welcome to your new Futurehome

How to get started with your new Futurehome

Your new smart home is a system consisting of an application and a ‘Smarthub’. These will control and automate all connected products in your home. If you have not downloaded the Futurehome application yet, this is your next step for a smarter home.

Android and iOS App

The Smarthub – The system’s brain

The Smarthub connects your phone through our application, and further our application to all your smart products. To get the best possible reach, place your Smarthub on a central location in your house. Preferably in the same area as your network router.

The Smarthub needs a network cable connected to your Internet router and permanent power supply. Don’t place the Smarthub in a metal cabinet as for example network cabinets or in some fuse boxes.

The Smarthub will now start automatically.

Register in the application

After you have downloaded the application, log in to the application and create a new customer profile. If you already have one, you can also use that.

The app will then automatically find your Smarthub when they are both connected to the same WiFi network. In your application an unregistered Smarthub will then be visible. Connect to it by pressing “Pair Smarthub” on the bottom of the page. This may take some minutes.

Learn more about connecting your Smarthub here.

Sites and user permissions

Permission to your Futurehome can be shared with as many people as you want. As owner of a site, you can invite other users, and decide what they have permission to see and do.

A site is defined as the house or estate that you will control with Futurehome. As a user you can have access to multiple sites, for example your home and your cabin.

You choose which place to control from the application, but you will get notifications from all sites that you are connected to.

Learn more about user access and sites.

Add product

When the registration is completed, you will get a message saying that there is no smart units connected.

Most of the components in the Futurehome system are easy to install, configure and connect. You can add a new component by going to “Site”, and then “Setup”, and finally choose a room and press “+ New device”. Follow the instructions on your phone to complete.

DASHBOARD

Is the first thing you see when opening the app. It gives you full overview and understanding of what’s going on at home.

MODES AND SHORTCUTS

With “Modes & Shortcuts” you can define shortcuts for your house, for “Home”, “night”, “away” and “holiday”.

ALARMS

Add alarms in the app so that you will be notified on your phone about critical events in your home. This can be burglary, water leakage or fire.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION

Get an overview of your home’s energy consumption. You will be able to see the total consumption and cost estimate in real time.

USERS

Give access to your home to friends and family. Press “Site” and “User permissions” to add.

ROOMS

By pressing “Rooms” in the bottom navigation you will be able to see and control each individual room in your house.

TIMELINE

With our timeline you have full control of who does what in your home, and events dating back in time.

TIMERS

Under “Timers” you can add actions that you want to take place at a given time and date.
