App control of sectional garage doors

Homematic IP Smart Home System

Sectional garage door owners who buy a new or already own a Novoferm garage door operator (NovoPort®, Novomatic 423 and Novomatic 563 S), model 2016 or more recent, will be able to use the Homematic IP app to control their garage doors from November 2018 onwards. The Homematic IP app can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store or Google Play and runs on both Apple and Android systems. Swipe the touchscreen to open or close your sectional garage door, control the lighting, or activate the air vent setting*.

Existing Homematic IP smart home systems can also easily incorporate “garage door control” in conjunction with Novoferm garage door operators. Join Novoferm on the journey towards a smart home. We look forward to helping you.

Homematic IP app

The free Homematic IP app for iOS and Android can be used to control Novoferm sectional garage doors on one or more devices (smartphones/tablets). Setup and operation are intuitive.

Garage door control functions:

  1. Open and close
  2. Operator lighting control
  3. Garage door status check via bi-directional radio
  4. Air vent setting* for optimum garage ventilation

Prerequisites:
When using the Homematic IP app or when out of sight of the sectional garage door, the automatic sectional garage door system must be protected by an additional opto sensor, alongside the standard power limiter. Up-and-over garage doors are not approved for operation using the Homematic IP app.
  

* Activating the air vent setting is only possible on a later release!

Inspiring smart homes

 
Homematic IP enables you to automate any area to suit your personal preferences: In addition to the heating, aircon, lighting and shade, security and monitoring, climate and environmental systems, you can also automate your Novoferm garage door. Homematic IP is easy to install and impressively easy to use, as well as offering maximum security. You decide for yourself what is important: remote control, automation, individual timing profiles or a combination of all three.

To use the Homematic IP app together with Novoferm sectional garage doors, the Novoferm garage door operator is connected to a standard router using the Homematic IP access point and the Homematic IP plug-in module. The Homematic IP Cloud Service – which is only operated on German servers and is therefore subject to both European and German data protection regulations – takes care of configuring the individual devices. All the data stored in the Homematic IP cloud are completely anonymous and can therefore not be used to draw conclusions about a user‘s identity or behaviour.

All communication between access point, cloud and app is, moreover, encrypted. Since private details – such as names, e-mails or mobile phone numbers – are not disclosed either during or after installation of the app, anonymity is fully guaranteed. The entire solution can be intuitively setup using a free smartphone app (iOS and Android) that can then be used for convenient control.

How the Homematic IP app works

Using the Homematic IP app requires a Novoferm garage door operator and the smart home package, consisting of Homematic IP access point and the Novoferm “Homematic IP” plug-in module, which you can obtain from a Novoferm sales partner near you.

Homematic IP Access Point

  • Connects a smartphone to Homematic IP devices via the Homematic IP cloud
  • Transfers configuration data and control commands from smartphone to Homematic IP devices
  • Particularly reliable IP wireless protocol based on 868 MHz
  • Extremely secure thanks to extensive AES encryption and server located in Germany
  • Network cable connection to a conventional router

Novoferm “Homematic IP” plug-in module
The Novoferm “Homematic IP” plug-in module is simply plugged into the mini USB socket on the garage door operator. The module can be used with all current operators (except Novomatic 823 S).
One plug-in module is required for each operator. The access point connection is 868 MHz.
