VELUX ACTIVE with NETATMO is the first smart home automated control of electric roof windows, blinds and shutters.
ROOF WINDOWS CONTROLLED BY SENSOR TECHNOLOGY
Smart sensors measure the temperature, humidity and air quality to automatically open or close your roof windows, blinds and shutters. The solution ensures healthier indoor climate while saving energy.
INDOOR CLIMATE CONTROL
You can remotely monitor and control your home’s indoor climate with key indexes for temperature, humidity and air quality, and receive alerts on your Smartphone when automatic regulation is on-going.
REMOTE AND VOICE CONTROL
Whenever you want, wherever you are, you can use the App, Apple HomeKit, Siri voice assistant or dedicated smart remotes to open and close your electric VELUX INTEGRA roof windows, blinds and shutters.
AN EASY EXIT
Placed at the front door, the wireless departure remote adds a layer of convenience to leaving the house. Pressing the remote activates a preset departure sequence, closing all the smart roof windows throughout your home and activating the secured ventilation mode. The same departure scene exists in the App.
This solution comes pre-programmed and ready to operate, autonomously and dynamically. It is compatible with motorized VELUX INTEGRA roof windows including ones that have already been installed. Even a manual roof window can be compatible by adding a retrofit motor.

Excellent control over the windows
We’ve just had 3 Velux Integra windows installed and soon the electric black out blinds too. I knew I didn’t want to have to use 6 remotes for the windows so bought the active kit.
The setup of the windows in the app is flawed. It detected the window but wouldn’t let me click it simply giving me skip or retry. So I exited the app and upon restarting it is said let’s finish setting up. I had to do this 3 times as I’ve 3 windows!
Same when it got to the naming bit close app re open it and it says let’s carry on.
Had it not been for that I would have given it 5 stars.
I’m enjoying asking Siri on my watch to open and close my windows now.
What can I say, I’ve been using the Active App for the last 6 weeks and love it. I found it easy to install and use, I bought it at the same time I purchased a new Velux window and blackout blind, I’m pleased I paid the extra to make the window operate by itself and it’s cool asking Siri to open and close it, several of our friends wish they had a window that opened by itself.
For the most part you’re better to just let it do it’s own thing as it’s been doing a good job at keeping our house cool and aired. I’ve set it up to open first thing in the morning and close just as it gets dark.
If I could change 1 or possibly 2 things about the app, then the first would be Landscape mode on iPad and the second would be the ability to set the Schedule to automatically adjust to changing sunrise and sunset as the darker night are drawing in as autumn approaches, and not just set the same time weekdays or weekends.
I can see this being really useful, however it would be even better if I could link it into some of the HomeKit automation action such that HomeKit could set the secure mode once everyone has left the house rather than relying on the last person to leave to hit a button. The reverse is also true when someone arrives home allowing the windows to open to regulate temperature...
Additional time slots for when the active control can operate may help and the ability to set it up differently depending on day of the week (generally I want a different pattern on a weekend when I am likely to be in more) but I think these features wouldn’t be especially important if the system knew when someone was in the house (based on device location) without the need to activate a controller.
Developer Response ,
Hi and thank you for your review.
Your suggestions have been reported to the development team so that they can take them into account for future updates.
Allowing different operating hours for ACTIVE control, between weekdays and weekends, is definitely planned for. This should be available soon.
