smart home frient IO Module

Bring your wired devices online

IO Module

Imagine having a frient who helps you automate your home. Someone who is able to connect even your wired devices to your smart home system, so you don’t need to replace them with new smart versions. A frient who smartens up your home while protecting your money bag.

Now that’s a frient!

Make your wired appliances smart

The friently IO Module acts like a bridge between your analog, wired devices and your wireless smart home network, so you can make your analog devices work with your smart home.

It can be installed in different types of devices like blinds, garage doors, or heat pumps. Just connect your wired device to the output part of the IO Module to make them respond to events, such as making your electrical blinds go up or your garage door open.

This can be triggered, for example, directly on your smartphone or by another smart home device such as another frient – the IO Module is fully compatible with other Zigbee-based smart devices.

Control wired devices remotely

With the IO Module connected to a wired device, you can easily control the device remotely with your smartphone. This allows you to remote control your electrical heat pump in your vacation house, for example, when you are not there.

The IO Module is also ideal for creating automations in your home, such as closing your electrical blinds when the sun is shining or opening your garage door when your car approaches.

A small frient that fits in almost anywhere

The IO Module has a convenient small size designed to fit into small spaces, for example inside a technical cabinet or behind an electricity outlet. This frient is meant to be hidden while it’s working its magic in the background.
