Light, sound and ‘Smart Home’ have become a best seller in the furniture business. The Loox LED lighting system from Häfele, and its comprehensive range of sound and entertainment components, have brought these worlds together. Combined with Häfele Connect, it has become the door opener for ‘Smart Homes’. The BLE box for intuitive control of furniture lighting and electrically operated fittings creates future-oriented ‘Smart Home’ experiences using a convenient, intuitive app. The Loox drivers are at the heart of the system. These make problem-free connection of the wide range of new applications possible. The modular system components go perfectly together, and are child’s play to install without tools using Plug & Play. They impress with their quality, flexibility and convenient operation.
The power to the new Häfele Connect BLE boxes is provided by two mains leads from a 12V or 24V driver. They are the app whisperers in the Loox world, making it possible to control individual lights (on/off, brightness, colour temperature with multi-white lights and light colour with RGB lights) and electrical fittings and store light scenes or change the brightness and the light colours under timer control. A single BLE box or an entire network of BLE boxes are controlled using a smartphone or a tablet. Safety aspects are also taken into consideration by the timer-controlled presence simulation.
The trendy, invisibly installed Häfele sound systems 105 and 420 turn furniture into an alternative speaker. They are equipped with a Bluetooth receiver and up to four sound transducers (exciter speakers). The exciter speakers convert every hard surface such as wood, glass or metal into a sound carrier, which makes music and speech audible with astonishing sound quality. The music selection and the volume are conveniently streamed wirelessly via Bluetooth using a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Interesting furniture with added value for music-loving customers is therefore created using the sound system from Häfele.
