New ABB-free@home Features Unveiled and Aftercare Service Available

The new ABB-free@home software update which is launching in January 2018 has many exciting new features, for further opportunity to revolutionise the way you control your home.

Sonos – The new update enables ABB to be integrated with the Sonos wireless audio system, meaning music can be controlled via the on-wall ABB panels as well as the option to create scenarios according to the room or time of day.

Geofencing – This feature involves creating imaginary fences around the home, so that when leaving the system detects this and adjusts to the programmed settings, such as turning all lights off.

Amazon Alexa – By linking their Amazon account to their myABBLivingSpace account via the Alexa App, users can now ask their Alexa device to turn lights off and on, adjust temperatures, and open or close blinds.
