BUS smart homes are great but you might find yourself stuck in a wired world as it is really hard to integrate other products. And while BUS is definitely a reliable and long-lasting technology there is a whole new world of exciting wireless devices for music, security, cleaning, and more. You have one smart home - and you should only have one mobile app for controlling it. It is not surprising to end up using 5 mobile apps for managing different smart devices. With Smart Assistant mobile apps, you can centralize them all in a single, sleek mobile app that is really friendly to use. It can also be used to access your home remotely from anywhere, anytime.

Supported KNX devices in Apple HomeKit app

From there you can use them in automation, scenes and other features offered by smart assistants. Automation features offered by assistants are also briefly described.
Below you can find a list of KNX devices that can be imported to Apple HomeKit.

Manage your automations without the need to learn how to program ETS

The problem with BUS smart homes (KNX included) is that you can not really manage your automation without learning how to use KNX Config. This is quite a technical challenge that a lot of people don't choose to take on. If you don't master KNX Config, you always need to rely on your smart home integrator which is usually very busy & expensive. But with the Apple home app, the management of your automation has been made so easy that you can do it yourself through a friendly interface.

Geofencing is an automation triggered based on your location

A geofence is an invisible boundary, a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area. For example, with geofencing you can create triggers so that when a device enters or leaves the pre-defined boundaries, a device turns on. This way a nicely lit house can await you when you come back from work.

If you need a professional device that is DIN mountable, this is for you. It is the best option for KNX owners as it is KNX certified, has a direct KNX bus connection as well as an IP interface. For Loxone and Gira users, Box can also be a comparable alternative.

A good and more affordable alternative to the Bridge product. For Loxone and Gira users this is the best price performance device. It is also a good choice for KNX users who already own a separate KNX IP interface and don’t need a direct to KNX bus connection.

Due to a global supply shortage of Raspberry Pi’s we are temporarily removing the 1Home Box device from our shop. Since the future supply of the Raspberry Pi’s is uncertain, we strongly suggest going for the 1Home Bridge device instead.

Can I use multiple Voice Assistants at once?

Yes, you can use all popular Voice Assistants with the 1Home platform. See this article to learn how to enable more of them.

How secure is the connection from my Smart Home to the Assistant?

The connection between your Smart home server and our cloud system is end to end encrypted using SHA512 encryption algorithm. Each device is in house provisioned with a certificate securely stored on the device. Upon each Smart home server connection, we put an additional layer of security which prevents anyone from monitoring the communication between your Smart home server and voice assistant.
