Who hasn’t experienced the problem of being in the garden or in the basement for a short while and then the mailman or parcel delivery person rings the doorbell. It would be helpful to receive an immediate message or email on your smartphone. But maybe you just want to integrate the doorbell into your smart home, so that a light flashes or a sound is emitted when the doorbell rings. Even if there is now even an official Homematic IP … Continue reading
After the Homematic Window Rotary Handle Sensor Review, we now have several optical radio door/window sensors as ready-to-use devices and kits tested. This is because the monitoring of window and door handles is effective, but also much more cost-intensive than the much cheaper window sensors and can also determine whether a door or window is really open or closed. We from Funkyhome.de think that the Window Sensors are an useful extension to save heating costs as well as help with … Continue reading
In the following tutorial we show how to create programs for the eQ-3 Homematic Window Sensor to transmit the state of windows and doors to a display, for example by means of system variables. You can also link Window Sensor directly to the Homematic radiator thermostat to save heating costs in winter by automatically lowering the thermostat when the window is open and then raising the thermostat again. How this works, we show in the new Funkyhome.de Smarthome Tutorial.
In the previous Homematic Shutter Actuator review we have already described in detail how to program a Shutter Actuator. However, despite monitoring the window and door contacts a serious problem could occur: You lock yourself out of your own house!

Good for those who control their smart home via their … Continue reading

After the previous Homematic E-Paper Display Review, we are now looking at the Homematic wireless OLED status display as kit on Funkyhome.de! The OLED wireless display can be mounted like the E-Ink wireless display surface-mounted, in-wall or in a separately available table display. The display differs fundamentally from the previously tested smarthome status display from Homematic, because it offers a full color graphic display that shows previously programmed data at the touch of a button. And in order to avoid … Continue reading
In the new programming guide we show today at Funkyhome.de especially beginners how to create programs for the Homematic color display to show for example the status of windows and shutters. In doing so, we will use the program to let the push-buttons query the values with a short press and with a long press we will let all shutters in the house move up or down or move the shutters to a certain position as sun protection.
Today we are testing at Funkyhome.de the Homematic Wireless E-Paper status display as a kit for installation in or on a conventional flush-mounted box or as standalone desktop display. Anyone who has already equipped their home with some automation components such as the Homematic shutter actuators, window contacts or radiator thermostats will certainly want to display a status on a display. Homematic offers various displays that have different advantages and disadvantages. We hope you enjoy reading the new E-Paper Display … Continue reading
