ComfortClick has launched a new version of its building automation software, ComfortClick bOS, the first Building Operating System.
ComfortClick bOS is a universal home automation platform that enables integration of all major systems and devices in any building and their control from a single application on any mobile device.
Building Operating System – bOS
The number of different home devices is increasing almost exponentially. However, these devices are usually operating independently. If there is a mobile application available, a separate application is needed for each device, meaning different user experience each time. ComfortClick bOS is a universal platform, an operating system where all devices are working together and can be automated, monitored and controlled from one application.
