wibutler pro: allowing building services to communicate
The second generation of wibutler pro connects 300 smart home devices from different manufacturers | Energy flow control for cost-effective heat pump operation | Energy conservation through automated harmonization of heating and ventilation
Allendorf (Eder), May 16, 2022 – The new generation of the wibutler pro energy control and alarm panel connects around 300 devices from different manufacturers – whether for heat supply, lighting control or home security. New elements include electricity management with the Vitocharge VX3 electricity storage system, the automated harmonization of decentralized ventilation units Vitovent 100-D and Vitovent 050-D, and Professional Smart Building for use in large residential complexes and neighborhoods.
Become more independent from increasing energy prices by managing electricity with Vitocharge
Networking a photovoltaic plant and the Vitocharge VX3 electricity storage system with wibutler optimizes the use of self-generated electricity in your home – and makes its occupants more self-sufficient in the face of rising energy prices. wibutler controls the energy flow not only for cost-effective operation of a Vitocal heat pump but also for other consumers of electricity in the home such as e-bikes.
Automated harmonization of heating and ventilating phases saves energy
Decentralized home ventilation devices Vitovent 100-D and Vitovent 050-D are often employed in the modernization of buildings. By networking them with the wibutler pro, residents can save energy due to the automated harmonization of heating and ventilation phases. Sensors check the air quality and humidity via wibutler and make sure room conditions are always optimal.
Professional Smart Building optimizes operation of the central heat generator in a large residential complex
wibutler also offers a variety of valuable digital services in addition to living space automation to regulate heat demand with Viessmann products in large residential complexes and neighborhoods. This optimizes the operation of a central heat generator by considering the energy demand of each residential unit individually. Calling the elevator from inside the apartment is a practical time-saver: This eliminates bothersome waiting time so you can get in immediately.
App design with new intuitive concept
Operation of wibutler pro requires the free wibutler app. This features a new intuitive concept that greatly simplifies the programming of if/then and time rules. For reliable protection of your home against break-ins, there is a new rule type available with the alarm function. This allows multiple components (light and blind control, window contacts, motion sensors, cameras) to be networked into a full-featured alarm system.
Voice activation with Google Home
In addition to Amazon Alexa, you can now use voice activation to control Google-compatible devices. Google Home is also available as an app for smartphones and tablets (iOS and Android) in addition to smart speakers with integrated microphones. Google Home and Google Assistant not only control individual devices but can also trigger complex processes “on demand.” The apps also offer useful location service functions.
wibutler alliance with potential
More than 30 well-known manufacturers in the heating, ventilation, control and regulation sectors are now members of the wibutler alliance. Around 300 compatible devices can be connected via wibutler. Recently, Busch-Jaeger joined from the electronics sector with Busch-free@home®.
