Funkyhome Online Magazine

The online magazine has been published for international visitors in English! Before we get down to business, we would like to briefly explain what Funkyhome is all about, what we will show on in the next days, weeks, months and years and how the Funky Home Online Magazine came about. Nowadays one can automate its home inexpensively, thus control for example the light, shutters, heating thermostats or similar. But at least when you buy a house, there are even more wishes for your own home and you are thinking about building a smart home. Slitting is usually only desirable for full refurbishment and this is where Funky Home comes to the fore. We provide step-by-step Smart Home tutorials, reviews of Smart Home components, news on hardware and software and much more.

Funky Home Online Magazine Introduction …

Anyone who has ever thought about controlling his lighting, heating, thermostats, roller shutters, sun blinds, jalousies, marquees or the like will necessarily at some point think about having to lay new cables 🙁

So remove wallpaper, dig slots, dust everything, put cables in, replaster, re-paper and paint!

You don’t want to do that, because even if you just bought a new house, you want to keep the effort for a new electrical installation as low as possible. Often you can use at least some old cables and don’t want to lay any cables for bus systems.

This is where Funky Home comes involved, because we deal with as simple solutions as possible by wireless. And to keep costs as low as possible, we test on Funky Home not only finished home automation components, but also inexpensive Smarthome kits from Homematic to Far East products.

Funky Home Applications …

Who hasn’t gone on holiday and wondered whether all the windows are really closed? No problem, it’s just one of hundreds of home automation applications!

And who, as a homeowner or owner of a ground floor apartment, hasn’t experienced a cosy barbecue outside when the roller shutter of the patio door suddenly came down? Here, too, the happy Smarthome owner just reaches for his smartphone with a tired smile and simply lets it go up again. If he ever got into this unfortunate situation, because with a roller shutter actuator, a door handle sensor and a little programming you can no longer lock yourself out with the roller shutter in the garden.

But maybe there’s just a light switch in the wrong place or you want to control heating thermostats clearly or check the temperatures of the rooms or the power consumption of individual devices or use the blinds as sun protection or you want to be informed by e-mail as soon as a letter is in the mailbox or if someone sneaks around at night in the garden or whatever.

Once you’ve laid a foundation stone, you can control almost anything in your house or apartment and, for example, operate it conveniently via your smartphone, if you have to, even via an encrypted VPN connection from remote. Of course we will explain this soon on Funky Home.
