Consumer units UK600

Thanks to their clever design, the UK600 series consumer units open up completely new possibilities for all installation tasks. A connection space that is up to 200 per cent larger than usual enables easy installation of devices while a separate area for media components covers all conceivable installation requirements quickly and effectively. Smart details such as the cable entry slider with integrated clamp mountings and the variable use in solid walls or drywall underline the high flexibility the consumer units have to offer.

A special highlight of the consumer units and media enclosures are the various door and frame designs which help you turn them into an attractive design feature in your home. You can insert your own pictures, pin boards, mirrors, magnetic boards, wooden or stainless-steel-look panels, or LED panels for backlight foils into the design frames.

smarter

ABB-free@home®

ABB-free@home® is specially tailored to meet the needs of smart residential buildings and is excellently suited for both new construction and renovation projects. Blind, light, heating, air-conditioning or door communication can be easily controlled in line with your personal wishes. For example, to change the lighting mood, just tap on the tablet or smartphoneʼs touchscreen or use a simple voice command: blinds will move, lighting colours will change. You can use all functions individually or combine them with others. In other words, you determine the type and number of functions you want to intelligently control yourself. Plus, you have the option of adding desired additional functions at a later date. Simply smarter – for the life you desire.

ABB-free@home®

When paired with ABB-free@home®, the wireless Sonos Home Sound System can be directly controlled via a switch, a panel or the ABB-free@home® app.

  • Sonos speaker control via
    a switch on the wall
  • Simple set-up
  • Creation of Sonos groups via
    ABB-free@homeTouch is also possible

Once linked with ABB-free@home®, the Sonos speakers can also be integrated into scenes. For example, you can create a “Good Morning” scene that links the kitchen and dining room speakers and plays your favourite radio station. In add­i­tion to panel control, the Sonos Home Sound System can now also be operated via built-in switches on the wall. They are available for the switch ranges carat®, solo®, Busch-axcent®, pure stainless steel, future® linear and Busch-balance® SI.

ABB-free@home® can be controlled via voice command using Amazon Alexa.

  • Manage complete scenarios as well as light, temperature and blinds
  • Convenient voice control without needing to lift a finger
  • Registration in the myBuildings Portal portal is required

“Alexa, good morning!”
A sentence that triggers the
following scene:

  • The blinds in the
    bathroom roll up
  • The lights come on
    and are dimmed to
    a predefined value
  • The heating comes on

Geofencing for unlimited comfort

Geofencing makes location-dependent home automation possible. As soon as residents approach a personally defined virtual boundary, their smartphone communicates their position to the home automation system. This in turn causes preselected functions such as light scenes, music or blinds to be called up automa­t­ically. Integrated in the ABB-free@home® system, geofencing makes home automation even more efficient and comfortable. One especially practical feature is that the function can be used by several people at the same time. In order to use this service, you will need to register with myBuildings Portal.

  • Enables location-dependent
    house control
  • Efficiently control functions
    with preset commands as required
  • Accessible for several users at

Busch-powerDock

Busch-powerDock removes the hassle of searching for the charging cable. Built into a flush-mounted box, the charging station for your mobile device is always located in a fixed place. Particularly practical: the Quick Charge® function enables fast charging. The station is suitable for modern uniform smartphone charging interfaces, such as for iPods and iPhones with a lightning connection or a USB-C port.

Safety/Security

The need for security is growing and there is a great demand for networked, seamless systems that ensure a safe and secure home.

More security for
your home

infographic-home

ABB-secure@home

ABB-secure@home helps you keep everything under control in your own four walls. The wireless system protects residential buildings and properties from burglary and theft, but also from sources of danger such as fire or water. It is easy to install, wonʼt damage walls or floors, and can be easily integrated into ABB-free@home®. In the event of an alarm, for example, the lights can be switched on and the blinds raised. More synergies – Smarter Home.

  • Connection to
    ABB-free@home®
  • “VdS Home” certification
  • Constant monitoring of
    communication and
    pos­sible interferences
  • Activation and deactivation
    of the alarm system via
    ABB-free@homeTouch

Security is comfort

Security and convenience from a single source: ABB-secure@home can be easily integrated into the ABB-free@home® smart home system. This means that functions such as heating, blinds and lighting, windows opening, presence and smoke detection can all be centrally and intelligently controlled and connected via a single system. This means, for example, that once the alarm system is armed, the ABB-free@home® system can activate the “out-of-house” scene, to switch off all appliances and lower the temperature. For increased comfort and a feeling of security.

Intelligent storage
and use of solar energy

infographic-home

REACT 2

The REACT 2 storage system enables the efficient use of stored solar energy for residential buildings. Excess energy generated by the photovoltaic system during peak periods can be stored for later use. This means, for instance, that the stored electricity will also be available in times of increased energy demand. REACT 2 is compatible with the ABB-free@home® house control system, making it easy to use. You can also manage energy consumption on the go using an app for smartphones or tablets.

ABB extends its switch future® linear, solo®, Busch-axcent®, pure stainless steel and carat® seriesʼ with many additional functions for example the Busch-Service socket outlet with increased contact protection. The switch ranges are particularly suitable for design-oriented hotels, residential buildings, offices, hospitals and public buildings.

The switch seriesʼ future® linear, solo®, Busch-axcent®, pure stainless steel and carat® are continuing to evolve. The interplay of design, new colours and functions makes controlling your smart home even simp­ler, more elegant and versatile than ever before. For example, the port­folio is supplemented by rockers with symbols for bells, lights and plugs, labelling panels and sockets with child-proof locks. All programmes have the same breadth of range. New vari-ations of switches and functions can be seen on the right-hand side in the example of future® linear.
