YOUVI Connect Module
With YOUVI Connect and the YOUVI software package Basic, it is possible to control a KNX Smart Home by voice command with Alexa or via the free home control app while on the move. Via an Amazon Echo speaker, the smart devices in the KNX building can be operated by voice control. The free YOUVI Smart Home app for iOS and Android smartphones can also be used with this module outside of your own home network. The Connect module thus enables secure access to the Smart Home.YOUVI Basic and PEAKnx hardware (Controlmini, Controlpro, USB-Connector or Performance Server). You can find more information in the "Installation" tab.
YOUVI Basic: The intelligent software solution for KNX smart home control
YOUVI Basic combines visualisation, IP router and bus monitor in one package. With the additionally available modules and bridges, the Smart Home functions can be expanded as required.
Home control by voice command…
With the Connect module, the smart home can be controlled by voice command via an Amazon Echo. Alexa switches lights on and off for you, regulates the heating or dims the lighting. The individual devices are addressed in the same way as they are displayed in YOUVI Visu. All devices can also be accessed via the app "Amazon Alexa" and be associated there with appropriate groups. Voice control with YOUVI Connect makes everyday life in the KNX Smart Home even easier.
...or by Smart Home App on the go
If you want to control your KNX building remotely, you can use the YOUVI Smart Home app. It is available free of charge for use in the home network for Android and iOS smartphones. The home control app provides users with an overview of their smart home devices and lets them easily regulate lighting, shutters or temperature. With the Connect module, secure remote control is also possible outside the home network.
Set accessible devices yourself
For each individual device it can be decided whether it should be accessible via the cloud or not. This applies both to the remote control of your devices via voice command as well as for access outside your own WLAN via the YOUVI Mobile App.
