The digital control of building technology and modern domestic appliances is on the advance. It offers additional safety as well as easy control, since applications can be monitored from wherever the user happens to be. Warema introduced digital control for numerous sun shading solutions in 2009 with WMS WebControl, and since then has continued to develop this product. Now the sun shading expert is co-operating with the technology company mediola, which has developed a practical all-in-one solution. It enables all the smart home applications, from heating and sun shading, entry phone and camera to smoke detectors and lighting to be controlled with complete ease using just one app.
Life has now been made much easier for those who have been using a variety of apps and remote controls to operate the sun shading system and other applications in their smart home. Any shading system with WMS WebControl can now easily be connected to the smart home using the mediola system, regardless of the manufacturer. This means that the most diverse systems and applications by various manufacturers can be linked together. So the user can, for instance, also use a door contact by a participating manufacturer to trigger WMS. Opening the patio door can be connected to a movement command for the external venetian blind so it is automatically raised. The main advantage for end users: all they need is to install mediola's Neo app on their smartphone or tablet, and they can control any of the products in their smart home.
Warema now also
Because the various manufacturers' systems are compatible with mediola, it is now also possible to use voice control with Warema's products. If a user has integrated a speech wizard in their mediola system, it can also be used to issue move commands to the sun shading system. Thus, for instance, Amazon's Alexa voice control responds to the command, "Alexa, lower the roller shutters". The Neo app by mediola is easy to configure by the user and set to their own requirements. In this combination, the Warema Mobile System can be used to create contemporary and individual solutions that leave nothing to be desired with regard to user-friendly and intelligent control.
