J-Wall Smarthome Central Building Guide

Many people have already built a smarthome in their condo or house and would like to have a clear control of all smarthome components and perhaps even video surveillance and a central sound system in the house. We at Funkyhome.de have taken a close look at this and today we are starting with a complete tutorial on how to build a central Smarthome control on the wall or rather in the wall. We will not only show you how to … Continue reading

Steinel CAM Light L 600 Camera Review

With the Steinel CAM light L 600 we test on Funkyhome.de another solution for WiFi video surveillance with recording for outdoor use. The Steinel CAM light is a chic outdoor lamp with WiFi surveillance camera that can be accessed via an iOS or Android based smartphone or tablet. In the following Steinel CAM light test, we will see whether the lamp with motion detector and camera from Steinel can convince us. We have also published an SD and an HD … Continue reading

Homematic Door-Window Sensor Review

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

Homematic Window Rotary Handle Sensor Review

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! If, for example, you lower the shutters at a certain time in the evening and are in the garden having a barbecue, you will be locked out of the house. Good for those who control their smart home via their … Continue reading

Homematic OLED Status Display Review

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

Velux Heat Protection Awning Review

We haven’t had such a warm spring like this for a long time! And so some of us in the top floor are probably plagued by too high temperatures. Anyone who has put his bedroom, children’s room or office up there will certainly be happy about any drop in temperature. Of course, if the temperature in the top floor is too high or too low, the roof insulation also plays a role, but not only that. If you look at … Continue reading

Homematic E-Paper Display Review

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

Homematic Shutter Actuator Review

After the Homematic radiator thermostat we are testing another important wireless actuator on Funkyhome.de today and that is the Homematic HM-LC-BI1PBU-FM Wireless Shutter Actuator as a kit as well as a ready-to-use device. If you want to operate your marquee, blind or roller shutter, you can buy a simple roller shutter timer. However, if you want to program it comfortably on your PC or via smartphone app, you should take a look at this wireless shutter actuator from Homematic. Just … Continue reading

Homematic Radiator Thermostat Review

Today we test on Funkyhome.de the Homematic HM-CC-RT-DN wireless radiator thermostat as kit. Radiator thermostats certainly belong to the most important elements of a smart home. For many it is certainly one of the reasons to begin a Smarthome, because the advantages of an intelligent heating control are obvious: One can temporally determine, when which radiator in the house is adjusted to the desired temperatures. This increases living comfort and saves money on heating. With the kit one can save … Continue reading

Homematic CCU2 Central Review

Today we would like to present on Funkyhome.de a test of the Central Control Unit 2 or briefly CCU2 from Homematic. It is not absolutely necessary to connect the actuators and sensors of Homematic via a central unit, because it is also possible to establish connections between each other. However, the experience only really starts with the Homematic CCU2 central unit, as it enables complex connectivity and extensive programming. In today’s review, we would like to test the Homematic CCU2 … Continue reading
