L'Axibox se dote d'une nouvelle fonctionnalité pour 2013!

L'Axibox se dote d'une nouvelle fonctionnalité pour 2013! | Home Automation | Scoop.it

Pour commencer l'année 2013, l'Axibox, la box domotique pour les accès type portails, porte de garage... se dote d'une nouvelle fonctionnalité: les jours exclus. 

Il était déjà possible d'établir un planning d'ouverture permanente (un contact peut déclencher les ouvrants tous les jeudis de 10h à 12h par exemple), il est maintenant possible d'exclure des jours (tous les jeudis, sauf le jeudi 7 Février par exemple) ou certains horaires d'un jour en particulier.

Forget Your Keys!

Forget Your Keys! | Home Automation | Scoop.it

The evolution of the smartphone as more than a phone is underway. They are slowly taking over tasks in our daily lives. Think about it.

Next will be, yep, your keys.

Default Frontend - Now it is more user friendly. We’ve added a drag & drop environment editor so no need to edit the xml files by hand to define your enviroment.

We’ve added a zero-configuration synoptic – a static background image could be used instead of a full description of the environment topology (for advanced and more detailed environment configuration the vectorial map is still available).
