Progetto-en

Design your Smart Home. Wirelessly.

HomeNET is the new platform from AirQ Networks dedicated to smart home automation. With HomeNET it’s really simple to automate your home in really few steps, without altering structure of the electrical plant.

HomeNET is wireless. This means that you can interconnect different devices without using long, expensive and invasive cables. It provides an integrated powerful web server that allows user to access devices through an Internet connection (both local then remote).

HomeNET working is really simple and straightforward. Once it’s powered and linked to the network thorough a network router or a switch, user can access to its functionalities thorough a web browser.

HomeNET is equipped with a powerful and flexible rule system that allow user to build complex applications. Through rules user can decide how AirQ Networks devices interacts each other. Moreover, rules allows user to set up alarms related to particular events: alarms can be sent both through E-Mail and SMS (text) messages.

Wireless is not just optional. It’s what makes it different. These days wiring is expensive in terms of wires and installation costs. Additional costs may be required to obtain authorization for the renewal of existing installations. AirQ Networks technology enables to cover wide areas easily and modify position of devices at your needs. Unlike other wireless products, AirQ Networks devices offer a longer coverage allowing to cover large areas and whole buildings using the same HomeNET control unit. This dramatically simplifies the installation and reduces your investment.

 

computers

Everything under control. From everywhere.

With the HomeNET software all is under your control! With HomeNET it’s possible to control every aspect of your home: lights, doors, roller blinds, heating system, garden irrigation, home temperature, etc. HomeNET provides a simple and fully customizable interface. The new improved dashboard allows you to organize your devices with a widget-oriented interface. Moreover, there is no need to use special software: you do all through a web browser without the help of technical service!
Thanks to the internal web server, you can access HomeNET simply using a web browser. Wherever you are in the world!

 

Mobile ready

SmartHomeThese days remote access is the main aspect of automation. Remote control from mobile devices is even more important. AirQ Networks solutions are designed to be 100% wireless: you can install our products without wiring and control them from anywhere using a smartphone or tablet too.

Mobile SMSSMS and E-Mail messages

Thanks to MyHOME cloud service, you can send messages automatically on event basis. Messages can be sent through E-Mail or SMS (text messages) without using expensive adapters or phone plans. E-Mail messages are free and we’ll advise you when SMS are running out.

 

Powerful rules system

regoleThe powerful and flexible rules system equipped with all AirQ Networks control units allows building up custom use cases. User can define specific actions in response to automatic or user-generated events.  For example, it’s possible to turn on the heating system when a temperature decreases under a given threshold. In the same way user can decide to turn on lights on a time-basis.

Rules are device dependent. This means that each kind of device define it’s set of actions and conditions, allowing to build complex scenario without the need to use specific and expensive hardware.

Moreover, system can generate SMS (text message) and E-Mail alarms as action of rules. This allow user to define alarm messages. Messaging subsystem is provided by the MyHOME online service, and there is no need to use expensive accessories or phone plans.

Rule system is completely customizable, and it fully integrated inside the HomeNET web server. There is no need to use external software, or PC.

 

 

homecloudsYour home in the cloud

With MyHOME cloud service you can take control of your Home from everywhere! MyHOME collects all the information coming from HomeNET control units and allow users to monitor and control1 their device wherever they are. MyHOME is really useful if your Internet provider doesn’t give you public access to your HomeNET router (no public IP). MyHOME is a free service!

1 The ability to change relay status from MyHOME service is currently under development.

No PC required

AirQ Networks platform doesn’t require any PC to work: the HomeNET control unit directly connected to the Internet using a switch or a router does all stuff. This means a lower TCO, less operating costs and no need to do maintenance on a PC that have to be kept on. Moreover, HomeNET software is updated on regular basis with new features and bug fixes, and user can update for free its control unit using a simple one-click procedure.

 

The engine it’s the best part.

No PC. No hidden costs. It’s all inside.

HomeNET has a built-in powerful software that allows to control and configure AirQ Networks devices. Thanks to the new user interface, you can take all under control simply using a web browser and a local LAN connection. The user interface was designed to simplify all aspects of configuration and to allow the user to take all under his control.

The video on the right shows the most important features of the new HomeNET software.

 

The new dashboard. Stunning and powerful.

The new dashboard is impressive and powerful in the same time. It allows you to organize your devices as you like. Thanks to its live update technology, you can see in real time what happens to devices, without refreshing the page. Dashboard is a collection of small widgets addable with a really easy drag ‘n drop interface. Every widget is related to a detail of a device included in your system:

  • Switching widget for I/O boards relays.
  • On/off icons for I/O boards inputs.
  • Temperature for temperature sensors.
  • A real-time data-trend graph for sensors.
  • And much more.

For each widget, you can change icon to give a special meaning for a particular device. For example, you can add a widget for a relay that commands light of your living room: in this case is preferable use a switch icon.

 

Control the status of your devices

HomeNET allows you to control the status of all devices of your system. Boards status view can do it. In this view you can control:

  • I/O boards status. For each I/O board you can see status of relays and inputs (on/off). Clicking on a relay icon you can turn on or turn off it;
  • Sensors status. For each sensor you can see the last data detected;
  • Date and time of last detection of every device;
  • Signal status and power status of every device;
 

Data history

HomeNET allows you to see history of the system. You can see sensors data trends or previous I/O status of your control boards. You can customize time interval of histories and print tables.

 

Make system intelligent with rules

HomeNET software provides a powerful and flexible rule system that allows you to build custom use cases and set up alarms. A rule recognizes a condition, and if it’s verified, a list of actions are executed. Some example:

  • If it’s 19:00, turn on living room and kitchen light.
  • If doorstep is open, send an email message to user address.
  • If temperature is lower than 10°C, turn on heating system.

You can set up a rule with an easy interface and a few mouse clicks: no programming skills are required, no programming code is required.

HomeNET interface allows you to activate/deactivate rules whenever you want.

 

 

 

 

Mobile ready

HomeNET provides a clear mobile interface for phone and tablets. From mobile interface you can do basic HomeNET operations:

  • To control devices status (relays, inputs, sensors data etc…).
  • To command switches.
  • To see histories and graphs.

 

 

 

 

Free software updates. For every one.

We have a clear policy about software updates. Updates are always free for every customer, and they can benefit for the latest functionalities every time they are available. To check if your software is the latest available, go to Setup->Maintenance section and follow the instructions.

How to install?

It’s really simple to install HomeNET. Usually there is no need to call an electrician.  You’ll need a screwdriver and few other tools. These are the typical steps needed to install HomeNET.

1Install the HomeNET wherever you want. Connect the control unit to your home Internet router. Download our HomeNET Finder tool to discover the IP address of the control unit on your local LAN. Once the control unit has been found, log-in using provided credentials and follow the installation instructions.

2Before you can use an end device (control board, wireless sensor, etc), you have to pair it to the control unit. This ensures that one end device can be used only with one control unit. To pair a device, follow the instruction in the installation wizard.

3Install the end device (control board, wireless sensor, etc) where needed. Go to HomeNET dashboard and start customizing device functionalities and creating rules.
