Smart Home – what does it actually mean?

We live in an age of connectivity. Things are connected to other things. Now it is not only people that communicate with each other. Lights, blinds, heating, washing machines and much more can be interconnected and controlled centrally using sensors in conjunction with information technology. A smart home is a domestic environment in which devices and systems are connected in this way. Such technology-supported living is now undergoing a veritable boom. More and more homeowners are discovering the benefits of having a house controller connected to a smartphone, tablet or computer. This sustainably increases the level of comfort, security and energy efficiency in the home.

WeberLogic 2.0:
Your smart home's brain

So just how smart is a smart home? The answer is: as smart as the house controller. WeberLogic 2.0 can be thought of as the brain that controls all the important functions in your WeberHaus home, making it even more energy-efficient and economic.

Even at the standard level, you benefit from the time-controlled operation of blinds and shutters and other key functions, like a master off switch at the house door, which switches off all the lights so you don't have to worry about having left one on. Or the panic button in the bedroom that opens all the shutters and blinds and activates all the inside and outside lights. Moreover, using wireless EnOcean technology significantly reduces electro smog.

Four features for increased comfort and security

Virtually at home

If the house is left unoccupied, time-controlled lamps and blinds can be activated to make it appear that someone is at home. This can protect against potential intruders. Thankfully, it is already included in the WeberHaus standard package.

Temperature control

Precisely define your own individual light, shade and temperature (with underfloor heating) scenarios for each room. This enhances the comfort of your home and also protects your wallet, while also taking care of the environment. This function is only available with myHomeControl.

Secure feeling

Enjoy an increased sense of security at home, thanks to the sensors on the windows and doors, as well as cameras and a panic button for activating all the lights in the house. With myHomeControl, everything is possible. For a secure feeling in your home.

Shutter controller

Shutters and blinds can also be controlled with the WeberLogic 2.0 app. Moreover, with the optional weather station, the shutter controller can even react to storm conditions or sunlight.

the standard package contains the following:

  • Wibutler and intuitive app for connectivity and control
  • Wireless EnOcean technology
  • Individual light scenarios
  • Determining a room’s heating requirements
  • Time controlled activation of blinds and shutters, including electric motors
  • Anwesenheitssimulation
  • Master off switch and panic button
  • Various shade scenarios

Smart house controller for sophisticated living

The key aspect of a smart home is its connectivity. The smart home’s brain is the wibutler home server, which is built into the WeberLogic 2.0 supplied as standard. The system communicates via wireless standards such as EnOcean and enables all manner of technical devices and apparatus in the house to communicate with each other. These range from lights to heating and from smoke alarms to the shutter controller. With the innovative myHomeControl, which is compatible with Apple HomeKit, you can enjoy an advanced level of comfort, security, and energy efficiency.

Smart Home mit Anbindung an Alexa
The wibutler home server connects all the smart home devices in the household, and the associated data is stored locally in encrypted form. Optionally, data can be uploaded to the Cloud, and even then, it remains encrypted and is stored in a data centre in Germany. This guarantees maximum security.

With the myHomeControl house controller, homeowners can control all the connectivity functions, such as lighting, blinds and heating, via an interface - even when they are not at home. Using one of the many additional functions, the system can, for example, also display the photovoltaic system.
The myHomeControl controller is tethered to the home app and the Apple HomeKit. In this way, connected devices in the house can be controlled from a smartphone. Functions can be intuitively assigned to individual rooms.

WeberLogic 2.0
With WeberLogic 2.0, you can easily control numerous additional functions in your smart home. With WeberHaus, the system is already included as standard.

Smart Home is a private residence whose electrical consumers are interconnected by means of sensors and information technology for the purpose of enhancing the building’s security, living comfort and energy efficiency. The basic functionality is always the same, and involves interconnecting various house components via a home controller system such as WeberLogic 2.0. While sensors (such as thermostats, smoke alarms, motion sensors, etc.) detect external impulses and record data (for example temperature or other measurements), other actuators (such as dimmers, shutter actuators, switchable power sockets, etc.) are able to trigger certain actions in the building (lowering shutters, for example).

The owner can choose to operate the house controller either via a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, or via a fixed central control unit in the building. Established suppliers such as WeberHaus prefer open systems like the EnOcean wireless standard, as this ensures the smooth exchange of information between sensors, actuators and app. It can be flexibly combined with products from many different manufacturers.



A smart home offers a variety of setting options, including simulation of the occupants’ presence, configuration of motion sensors, and selecting the ideal feel-good temperature. To make efficient use of the numerous options, the central house controller should be as simple and intuitive as possible to operate. Normally, a smart home is controlled via a central control unit in the house, using a smartphone or tablet app or the user interface on a computer. In addition to ease of operation, comfort and safety aspects are other important factors that determine the homeowner’s ultimate choice of house controller.

Connectivity in a smart home usually involves a combination of products and solutions from different suppliers. To enable such combinations, suppliers have to agree to a common standard. This is what leads to a so-called open system. Examples of these are EnOcean, WiFi, and Bluetooth. In contrast, closed systems will not be compatible with solutions from other suppliers. This is why in the majority of cases, open systems are preferable to closed ones. The WeberLogic 2.0 house controller, too, is based on the open EnOcean wireless standard.

EnOcean is a uniform wireless standard used for smart building automation. There are currently more than 1500 products from around 150 manufacturers that can be controlled with this open system. The company is regarded as a pioneer in energy harvesting, a type of energy generation that requires an extremely low level of resources. Battery-free energy convertersand wireless sensors from EnOcean collect and store tiny quantities of energy, for example ambient light, in their immediate vicinity, with the aid of small solar cells, and use it in switching applications in buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT). This represents an energy saving of up to 40 percent.

Wireless sensors and switches with their own power supply are therefore ideal for sustainable smart home applications. The innovative WeberLogic 2.0 house controller also uses this safe, maintenance-free wireless standard. It ensures that sensors and actuators are able to communicate directly, whether through a room controller or a gateway to the Cloud or by remote control via a tablet or smartphone.
