Installation

Installation and commissioning has never been easier. From start to finish, ABB-free@home™ makes home automation easy. It saves electricians valuable time and gives them a competitive advantage.

Perfectly connected

The commissioning of all components is conducted through an ordinary web browser or the ABB-free@home App. The possibilities are endless. All devices can easily be part of time programs and operated via voice commands or remotely through MyBuildings portal. Up to 150 devices can be connected in one system. Each participant in ABB-free@home has a unique address which is detected by the System Access Point, the heart of the system.

The System Access Point

The System Access Point is the heart of the ABB-free@home system. It provides access for computer, tablet or smartphone via WLAN. This allows the functions of the system to be defined and remote controlled – even after installation. It is recommended that the System Access Point be combined with a network router – via LAN or WLAN – to ensure the most comfortable operation of the system. With a MyBuildings portal account and Internet connection, the user can easily reach the functions in the System Access Point via the app from anywhere in the world. For convenience, the System Access Point can open its own WLAN. This makes the electrician independent from the structural conditions and no additional software is required.

Configuration made easy

The intuitive app user guide allows the ABB-free@home configuration to be made quickly via tablet or computer. First, the floor plan with floors and rooms is created. Next, all available devices in the rooms are activated and allocated to the respective floors and rooms. Once the placement of actuators and sensors is complete, the devices can be combined as wanted, new scenes can be created and time schedule and action logic can be set up.
