Talk to your roof window and ask it to open
For the first time ever you can now tell your roof windows to open or close for a better and healthier living environment.
VELUX 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. The system can be controlled using Siri®, Apple’s voice-controlled intelligent assistant, or with the touch of a button on the Apple Home app.
According to research we spend a staggering 90 per cent of our time indoors and often forget to ventilate our homes.
Sensor-based automatic operation
Built on the newest smart-sensor technology, the VELUX ACTIVE with NETATMO system, developed in partnership with the leading smart home company Netatmo, 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.
“Few are aware of the impact of indoor air on their health and wellbeing, but the air we breathe is just as important as the food we eat or the water we drink. An average adult breathes in around 15,000 litres of air every single day and spends up to 90% of their time indoors. A healthy indoor climate goes way beyond simple convenience, which our new smart home solution ensures,” continued Holm.
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.
