Hätzlich Willkumme in Kölle!

Welcome to Cologne


The entire apartment is equipped with a Smarthome system.

With the switch at the top of the stairs, the light can be switched on and off centrally when entering or leaving the flat. In some areas, motion sensors control the lighting. The light in the stairwell goes out automatically.

When a window is open, the heating switches off automatically.

The system not only provides living comfort, but also helps us to operate the apartment in an energy-saving way. Thank you for your support.

Central tablet control for light and air conditioning

The tablet in the kitchen can be used to control lighting and air conditioning throughout the apartment. Click through the settings, you will quickly find your way around.

The 5 touch points

You will find the switches of the Smarthome control at various places in the apartment. A light touch is enough. In addition to the touch area in the middle, the corners of the switch also switch. Just pay attention to the labelling.
