ABB Launches Free@Home Smart Home Controller

ABB 02_Busch_ComfortTouch

ABB has launched a new ultra-compact controller for its ABB-free@home® smart home system. Called the ABB-free@homeTouch 4.3in., the wall-mounted controller enables control of up to 16 functions such as heating, lighting and blinds or curtains – while integrating sensors for temperature control. The 4.3in. unit is designed for installations where space is at a premium.

The ABB-free@homeTouch 7in. and the new, ultra-compact ABB-free@homeTouch 4.3in. in a flush-mounted design with integrated room temperature regulator ensure ingeniously simple operation of a smart home. Up to 16 functions on the ABB-free@home system can be very easily controlled (e.g., central all-on or all-off functions) or the window status can be monitored. The functions are controlled via tapping or swiping on the capacitive glass display.

When the doorbell rings, you can let your guest in with the tap of a finger. The ABB-WelcomeTouch function reveals who is at the door by snapping an automatic camera image. While speaking to your visitor, photos can be taken spontaneously. If you are not at home, for security reasons, three photos of each visitor are automatically saved after the doorbell rings. Practical and for complete home monitoring. ABB-WelcomeTouch is controlled rapidly and intuitively via the high-resolution XXL touch display (screen size 17.8 cm). There are also six more simple hot keys.

With Busch-ControlTouch KNX, all controls are carried out via a smartphone or tablet app, and soon also via smartwatch. This guarantees maximum operating comfort at home as well as convenient access while on the go.
