ABB India has launched free@home, the intelligent home automation system.

The easy-to-install solution brings together the controls of lighting, temperature control, blinds and security of the entire household on a single interface – smartphone, tablet or computer.

“The plug and play free@home solution is intuitive and flexible for adaption by end user. The system can continuously adapt to changing requirements, thus ensuring security for the future,” said Raimondo Salandra, President of Low Voltage Products, ABB India.

“This will make home automation accessible to more individuals and families, while providing a business opportunity for electrical installers,” he added.

For end users, the solution enables time saving, energy efficiency and safety. Installation of ABB-free@home is convenient as no investment in new software is required. Until now, such investment in equipment, software and training had kept many installers from entering the home automation market.

In India, home automation has evolved through the steps of individual controls, and integration and energy efficiency, to control of remote devices today.
