merten@home / User interface for building control


Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

Wouldn’t it be great if you could set your underfloor heating to a cosy temperature via PDA from the airport’s W-LAN hotspot at the end of a business trip?
Nothing could be simpler – and this is just one of the many options offered by merten@home. The new user interface enables users to conveniently control all building functions for private homes, holiday cottages or commercial properties. Whether it be heating, lighting, blinds, your surveillance system or your domestic appliances.
Whether locally or remotely. With merten@home, you are always at home, wherever you are.
