VELUX has teamed up with smart home company Netatmo to introduce VELUX ACTIVE, a ‘plug-and-play’ smart home solution for remote sensor-based operation of roof windows, blinds and shutters.

Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 12.26.11VELUX ACTIVE with NETATMO is the first smart roof window system that connects with Apple HomeKit, allowing homeowners to manage indoor climate control at home or remotely across all Apple devices, including iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and HomePod. 

According to research, we spend 90 per cent of our time indoors and often forget to ventilate our homes, but the new VELUX ACTIVE will automatically air out the room for you.

Built on the newest smart-sensor technology, the system thinks and acts on your behalf. Smart indoor sensors monitor the temperature, humidity and CO2 concentration inside the home and activate a gateway to open or close the roof windows to improve the climate indoors.

The smart home device is pre-programmed so that roof windows automatically open to let fresh air into your home when needed. The device also prevents homes from overheating by proactively closing shutters and awning blinds.

Due to its compatibility with iOS and Android, you can manage and monitor your windows with a few touches on your smartphone using the Apple Home app across all Apple devices and VELUX ACTIVE’s own app.

Fred Potter, founder and CEO of Netatmo, concludes: “By automating the opening, closing and shading of roof windows, we can make a big difference and improve indoor climate so users don’t have to worry about it. We created a smart sensor-based solution that is not only easy to use and reliable, but also beneficial for user’s wellbeing.”
