WiFi extension leads with backward compatibility
It is easy to set up the intelligent WiFi sockets of brennenstuhl®Connect with the free app. Furthermore, the process of "learning" the WLAN adapters is very fast. The smart WiFi sockets are perfect for getting started with the Smart Home. But even smart home connoisseurs are convinced of the technology of the WiFi sockets, as they enrich the home in no time at all without the need for a central office, e.g. a hub or gateway. Your normal WLAN router is sufficient to integrate a smart WiFi socket into your smart home.
The smart sockets support the WLAN standard 2.4 GHz. To integrate the sockets into your own WLAN network, use the free brennenstuhl®Connect App. After connecting to the network, you can control the electrical appliances connected to the sockets via your smartphone or even via voice assistant. The WiFi connectors are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Read in our blog post everything about setting up the remote control and voice operation of brennenstuhl®Connect.
The special technical feature of brennenstuhl®Connect WiFi sockets is the downward compatibility to 433 MHz radio products from brennenstuhl®. If you own a brennenstuhl®Connect WiFi socket with 433 MHz transmitter you have the possibility to integrate other brennenstuhl® radio products with 433 MHz into your Smart Home. This means that the intelligent control of this single WiFi socket allows you to control additional 433 MHz radio sockets depending on it.
