Those who wish to use their Warema sun shading system smartly and energy-efficiently do so with the Warema Mobile System, WMS for short. Now the company has completely upgraded its PC software. The result: WMS studio pro for faster, easier setting-up and operation of WMS networks. The software accompanies the user safely through the entire set-up process, since it combines all the necessary functions from allocation of the products by means of Drag & Drop to the settings for app control.
The new user interface in the typical Warema look is notable above all for the effective commissioning thanks to graphic support and intuitive user guidance. Self-explanatory icons for the allocation of sun shading products are easy to move around in the configuration using Drag & Drop. Thus, for instance, a number of external venetian blinds, awnings and roller shutters can be set up in the system as well as the corresponding wall and hand-held transmitters. The intuitive operation ensures that about half as many clicks are required for the entire commissioning process than used to be the case – regardless of how simple or comprehensive the WMS solution is to be. The workflow has been greatly improved to this end without changing the content of the software.
As before, the software includes standard parameters. This means that those who do not wish to individualise it will be able to activate their sun shading control system, or extend or retract it, in moments by remote. However, defining preferred settings is also much easier than it used to be, and can be effected not only by the specialist retailer but also by users with some experience of the technology. The WMS Stick, which specialised retailers can obtain from Warema, will still be required to transmit the data from the software to the products. This means that this familiar sequence for setting up the WMS network also remains unchanged.
However, what is new is the help function, which for the first time has been integrated directly in the software. Instead of the tedious leafing through the manual, mouse-over help texts or a help function integrated in the software will quickly show what actions are required. This means the application is safe and efficient. The new software will be available as a free download from www.warema.de/studio from the second quarter of 2018. Warema offers short, informative webinars for new users and experts who are changing over to the new software to initiate them in the use of WMS studio pro.
