The app is the intuitive control center of your smart home.
The light sensor allows you to conveniently and accurately measure the outdoor brightness.
The Homematic IP light sensor reliably measures the brightness in the outdoor area, which you can then conveniently read out via the free Homematic IP app. In combination with other smart home devices such as window controls or switchable sockets, it can be used in a variety of ways. In summer, for example, you can automatically activate the shading to protect your home from overheating. The sensor measures the light values in lux and forwards the measured data to the Homematic IP access point and the networked devices. These react according to your desired configuration. For example, when it gets dark, the lighting in your home can be activated while the windows close automatically.
Thanks to battery operation and wireless communication, the Homematic IP light sensor is immediately ready for use and can be flexibly deployed. Outdoors, you ideally mount it on the wall or set it up in the desired location. The necessary mounting accessories such as dowels and screws come with the light sensor.
