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.
