Busch-free@home / Web app


Discipline: Communication


Discipline: Communication

The web-based Busch-free@home app allows for playful and easy configuration and switching of home automation. It is optimized for the use on multiple devices. In our co-creative design process with potential future users, installers and nonprofessionals, we developed an app design that stands particularly out due to its simplicity when configuring home automation installations – a task that typically can be complex and difficult to handle. However with Busch-free@home, configuration is made easy. You can instantly and flexibly change and expand your smart home.
