Allendorf (Eder) – Whether it’s lighting, blinds, heating systems or smoke detectors: The open-source IoT platform wibutler connects over 250 products from more than 30 manufacturers. With Busch-Jaeger, the market leader in the area of electronics, they are joined by another top brand. The connection of the successful Busch-free@home® smart home system to the wibutler platform creates new possibilities for linking electronic devices to Viessmann’s heating, ventilation and energy technology as part of a connected home.
Highest degree of energy efficiency, home comfort and safety
Viessmann’s mission is to create living spaces for generations to come. Digital technologies are indispensable in this mission, because only with them can we reach the highest degree of energy efficiency, home comfort and safety. Now, the combination of Busch-free@home®, wibutler and Viessmann energy systems offers a seamless solution that also meets the highest requirements of smart building services.
Holistic solutions create more independence
In the case of heating controlled in accordance with requirements, cross-trade energy optimization at home can be achieved simply by connecting the Busch-Jaeger components to, for example, a Vitocal heat pump. Furthermore, the integration of a photovoltaic system with the hybrid electricity storage system Vitocharge VX3 enables the optimal bundling and management of power generation, storage and consumption. Such a holistic solution enables users to become more independent from the public grid and allows the cost-effective and efficient use of the self-generated electricity for different applications. Furthermore, Busch-free@home® may be upgraded with a Vitovent home ventilation system to comply with ventilation requirements in an energy-efficient manner.
