From commissioning to your daily use, all applications in and around the house are amazingly easy to combine with ABB-free@home™.  


With ABB-free@home™, room temperature can be automated based on your daily routines which results in increased energy efficiency.


With ABB-free@home™, you can switch and dim lights as normal but also set pre-defined dimming options and light scenes. Additionally, lights can be controlled individually or as a group. Through the integration of Philips Hue LED, RGB LEDs can be controlled through the same system.



Door communication

Say welcome to your guests. ABB-free@home can be easily integrated into ABB Welcome via the ABB-free@home Touch panel. This allows one display as a central point of operation for all building functions including door communication. It also provides the configuration of “Welcome scenes” that can be triggered upon the arrival of a visitor. 



Your safety is a priority. With ABB-free@home, you can activate a presence simulation while away from home. ABB-free@home also sends push-notifications to allow you to call the police in the event of an emergency. 


Additional features

Scene control

Creating or changing scenes is easy with ABB-free@home. An intelligent assistance function in the app helps to assemble the desired functions. Activation transforms a living room in a matter of seconds to welcome guests or create a relaxing environment.

Remote control with MyBuildings portal

The MyBuildings portal makes remote access and control easier than ever. It bridges the ABB-free@home system with your smart phone, tablet or computer via an internet connection. The communication between MyBuildings portal, the ABB-free@home system and the device is encrypted by TLS.

Voice control

VoiceControl_150x160Controlling your home becomes even easier. ABB-free@home can be controlled easily via voice commands. Very simple, without having to learn special commands and without laborious configuration. The user can interact with the system intuitively, as if he or she was speaking with another person. The system understands commands like “Switch on all lights!” and even responds by saying “Okay. All lamps have been switched on.” It can also respond to the user’s questions such as “Are the lights still on?” The voice control is initiated by pushing the microphone button on the user interface of the ABB-free@home app.

Integration of third party products and services

ABB-free@home allows the integration of 3rd party products and services. The scope is steadily growing. Soon ABB-free@home will support the integration of the Sonos wireless home and sound system, and Amazon’s cloud-based voice service Alexa. This enables users of ABB-free@home to control home functions such as light and heating by giving voice commands without the necessity of reaching for the smart phone. Furthermore, thanks to the integration of Sonos, music can now be seamlessly integrated into scenes and controlled through sensors, touch panels, and the ABB-free@home App.


The Geofencing function makes it possible to trigger actions in the house when entering or exiting locations. This, for example, makes it possible to trigger an everything-off scene when all residents have left the house, or to turn on the heating as soon as you leave work so that your home is warm and cozy when you arrive.

Logic functions

The ‘Actions’ menu enables intelligent combination of  different processes, using ‘if… then’ logic. If a light is switched on while no one is at home, send a notification on my phone. This is your home thinking alone. 

Presence simulation

Always a good feeling. The presence simulation of ABB-free@home records the weekly sequence of the devices. This means that its response can be exactly the same whether the residents are present or absent. The function can be activated and changed by the residents from anywhere. Whether on a business trip, on holiday or while shopping around the corner. With the app on the smartphone, remote control and a safety check of the entire home is possible from anywhere in the world.
