Compatibiliteit

To control screens via the Renson Connect app you will need the following items:

Gebruik van de app

That is certainly possible.
Firstly, this can be done in the configuration process, where you are asked to assign a name and a space for your screen. You can also change this name later via Settings > General > Components.

  • Renson considers a unique address as a Healthy Space (a residence). This can be either a house or an apartment.
  • Traditionally, one Smart Home Device is linked to that residence. This is the device.
  • Within it, different rooms are possible, in which different components can be added.

A component is a product that can be controlled with a smartphone within a Smart Home environment. Typically these are screens, but may also include smart lighting, heaters or roof sections if you have an outdoor patio cover.
