    FASCINATING TECHNOLOGY - ALL ADVANTAGES IN DETAIL+

    AS CUSTOMIZABLE AS YOUR SMARTHOME.
    A smart home is individual and changes over time. With the APPMODULE you can extend and change the functionality according to your needs. You decide which functions it should offer. At any time. This is how today’s intelligent home remains tomorrow’s home.

     

    FULL INTEGRATION. FULL CONTROL.
    With the help of Smart Home Apps, you can integrate numerous IoT devices and services into building automation based on KNX and EnOcean. Choose from a wide range of products in the BAB APP MARKET and easily integrate multimedia products, for example: Simply assign an address to the desired function and you’re done. The integrated components can be controlled either via push-button sensors, an existing building visualisation or the »Smart Screens« visualisation provided automatically by APPMODULE. Everything in one interface - eliminating the hassle of switching between individual apps.  

     

    EXTENSIVE APP-PORTFOLIO.
    Whether it’s an IoT device or an intelligent function extension, the BAB APP MARKET offers a growing selection of smart home apps for the intelligent home. Simply load, install and start right away. Thanks to the available SDK, third-party manufacturers and developers offer their own apps for the APPMODULE in the BAB APP MARKET. More information can be found at www.bab-appmarket.de.

     

    INTEROPERABLE APPS.
    Smart Home Apps installed on the APPMODULE can exchange information among themselves via their assigned addresses. For example, start your SONOS® players with your favorite playlist via the presence detection feature of the FRITZ!Box®, or start a lighting scene with Philips hue® as soon as you turn on your TV. Use the Amazon®, Apple®, or Google® voice assistants to control any device you connect to the APPMODULE. 

     

    SIMPLE AND WEB-BASED CONFIGURATION.
    Apps on the APPMODULE can be configured easily and platform-independent with a web browser.. All Smart Home Apps from the BAB APP MARKET offer a uniform configuration interface. You will find your way around immediately.

     

    KNX. ENOCEAN. IP.
    Whether new installation or retrofitting: Equipped with a KNX/TP or an EnOcean interface, or on IP basis, the APPMODULE fits in almost every installation. The App »KNXnetIP for EnOcean«, which is available for the EnOcean version, makes the APPMODULE a complete gateway between EnOcean and KNX.

     

    KNX IP ROUTER INCLUDED.
    Simply use the APPMODULE instead of a conventional KNX IP router. This eliminates the need for a separate device in the installation. It can also be used as an interface to the ETS.

    The SDKMODULE opens up new possibilities for developers to help shape the world of the Smarthome and to make it even smarter through creative ideas. Together with the associated platform-independent SDK, new, unprecedented applications for the APPMODULE can be created for the KNX, EnOcean and IP worlds. In contrast to many other products in the field of building automation, the APPMODULE with its permanently expandable functionality offers highest flexibility through the app concept. It grows and changes with the requirements of the customer. Whether IoT integration or special automation solutions - the possibilities for developers and users are almost unlimited. Benefit from a convenient library for Java™ or Groovy applications and a modern distribution infrastructure that ensures transparent and lucrative monetization of your products - the BAB APP MARKET. The SDK simplifies your work with its provided methods and does not require in-depth KNX or EnOcean knowledge.

     

     

     

    Advantages of the SDK

     

    SDK and SDKMODULE

    The SDK provides all the necessary prerequisites for programming Smart Home Apps for the APPMODULE. The SDKMODULE (hardware) provides a connection to KNX or EnOcean and the IP world. This offers developers the opportunity to test their smart home apps in a realistic way.   

     

    Scripting language for convenient development

    Ideally, you should develop apps in Java™. To facilitate access for developers, the SDK also offers the scripting language
    «Groovy». Groovy includes closures, native syntax for maps, lists and regular expressions.  

     

    Be creative - we take care of the rest 

    The methods integrated in the SDK allow you to communicate easily with KNX®, EnOcean® and network devices. Using JSON objects, you can define configuration interfaces from standard elements that the APPMODULE automatically transfers to a uniform design. Individual configuration elements are also possible thanks to polymer technology and JavaScript. Alternatively, you can develop the configuration interface entirely in AngularJS. 

     

    Utilization of Smart Home Apps 

    Completed Smart Home Apps are loaded into the APPMODULE by users from the growing portfolio of BAB APP MARKET. The Smart Home Apps are immediately available and can be used in projects with the APPMODULE. Developers decide for themselves how many instances of an app can be executed in parallel in an APPMODULE.

     

    Visualization of Smart Home Apps  

    The control of all Smart Home Apps in the APPMODULE is realized via the visualization of the system into which the it is integrated – i. e. any KNX or EnOcean visualization. You do not have to create a separate GUI. In addition, the APPMODULE provides its own visualization that can be used with iOS® and Android® devices, the so-called «Smart Screens». The SDK offers you the possibility to integrate your Smart Home App into this visualization without having to develop your own UI. In so-called Smart Screens, users control different IoT devices and smart home components within a single app. 

     

    Selling Smart Home Apps in the BAB APP MARKET

    The BAB APP MARKET is the primary marketplace for Smart Home Apps. Registered developers have the opportunity to sell their own Smart Home Apps. They are provided with a modern and transparent sales platform. In this way, they benefit from a solidly growing customer base and existing marketing structures. 

     

    Integration of the APPMODULE

    The APPMODULE can be integrated into almost any existing or planned building automation system. Regardless of the manufacturers and versions of the devices used - every KNX® or EnOcean® system is qualified. Of course, a purely IP-based control of the integrated devices is also possible.

     

    Interoperability

    Apps installed on the APPMODULE can interact with each other. For example, it is possible to control Denon HEOS® devices with Amazon® Alexa without having to install a skill from the manufacturer. Of course, this applies to all other installed IoT control apps.
