YOUVI Basic software package (visualization, IP router, bus monitor)
YOUVI Basic enables the reliable control of all basic tasks of your KNX Smart Home. The software package consists of a visually appealing visualization including a Smart Home App (iOS/Android), a bus monitor and IP router software. YOUVI thus offers a Smart Home solution that works without an external KNX server or IP router. Further functions, such as the integration of surveillance cameras, voice control or logic, can be added as required by the respective add-on modules.
Please note! YOUVI can only be run with PEAKnx hardware. This item is intended for USB connector owners who have not previously purchased YOUVI. Please enter the serial number of your USB connector during the ordering process. As an owner of a PEAKnx touch panel or server, YOUVI is available to you free of charge.
YOUVI: KNX visualization for an intelligent home.
YOUVI Basic guarantees intuitive usability with maximum functionality: users receive three functions (visualization, IP router and bus monitor) in one software package. In combination with PEAKnx hardware, YOUVI becomes a complete smart home solution for KNX home control. With YOUVI Basic you can control sockets, dimmers and RGB lights, but also blinds or adjust the heating appropriately. All functions at a glance are listed at the end of the description.
Flexible expansion of smart home functions
Those who want to integrate cameras for monitoring, use Alexa voice control or create their own routines and logics as well as presence simulations, can flexibly expand the range of functions of YOUVI Basic with additional modules. Control via smartphone is also possible in your own home network with the free YOUVI Smart Home app. The use of the home control app while on the go is possible with the YOUVI Connect module.
Visualization automatically created from ETS import
The smart home visualization is created with YOUVI by an ETS import directly from the ETS project structure. System integrators can thus save a lot of time when implementing the automation project. YOUVI also creates group widgets directly from the room assignment of the ETS project.
Intuitive home control thanks to clear user interface
The user interface can be edited by the smart home owner as desired via drag & drop. With YOUVI Visu, the states of the integrated devices are clearly displayed according to floor and room. Lights, sockets and switchable devices, shutters and blinds, dimmers and RGB lights as well as the heating system can be displayed and controlled. The Smart Home visualization also offers an eye-saving Dark Mode and is available in German, English and French.
Automatic display of sensor values
Sensor values for weather data, such as humidity, brightness, wind direction and speed, but also sensors for CO2, noise, binary values, percentages, temperature, time and pressure can be displayed in the visualization. Each sensor widget also has a graph display that shows the sensor value over the course of the day, week, month or year. Those who don't have sensors at home can also use the integrated weather station with a 3-day forecast and current humidity, wind direction and speed.
Customize Smart Home Dashboard
Users can also customize their dashboard. Three different layouts and up to five dashboards are available for swiping through. In addition, there are functions for creating your own groups, timers and room buttons. Room buttons are added to the dashboard to either control the group functions (shutters/blinds, lights, sockets) of the room from the dashboard or to switch directly to the respective room. A trigger button is available for special switching commands, which can also address KNX scenes, among other things. In addition, own scenes can be created from devices of the visualization in the scene editor. Web widgets also offer a flexible way to integrate websites directly into the visualization.
No external KNX IP router required
The included IP router software establishes a connection between the KNX building control and the IP network - IP-capable devices (such as the Controlmini or Controlpro) can thus be used as KNX IP routers without the need for additional hardware. The IP router is not only compatible to most common KNX programs (e.g. ETS 5) and supports IP tunneling, EIBlib/IP and multicast, but also allows the individual transmission of incoming and outgoing group addresses. The processing of extended frames is no problem.
Detect errors in the KNX network quickly
A bus monitor software is also included in the YOUVI Basic software package. This provides an overview of the KNX network without the need for an ETS license. All telegrams transmitted on the KNX bus are logged in tabular form. With the help of numerous filter options, occurring faults are thus quickly found and solved.
