Light sensor – outdoor

Various functions in the smart home, such as your shutters, can be intelligently controlled via the smart outdoor light sensor.

Let the sun into your smart home – exactly how you like it

At midday, the sun often heats up living spaces in particular. This doesn't have to happen in your smart home: With Homematic IP, you only let in the sun when you want it. The light sensor measures the brightness outdoors and passes on the values to your shutters on request. Your shutters will be automatically lowered at a certain brightness level. For carefree enjoyment of your smart home.


Keeping an eye on brightness

The sensor measures the brightness in lux in your outdoor area. You can see all measured values in the Homematic IP app.

Smart combinations

The intelligent thermal protection prevents your rooms from overheating in summer thanks to automatic shading.


In combination with the Homematic IP shutter actuators (e.g. HmIP-FROLL), your home remains cool even in bright sunshine. With Homematic IP switching actuators (e.g. HmIP-BSM), your lights are switched on automatically when it gets dark.

Homematic IP: Smart living. Simply exciting.

Homematic IP means modern, flexible and secure technology from the European market leader*. Let the advantages of our system win you over, and start living smarter straight away. 

With some smart home providers, you have to make a choice: Do you have everything wired, or do you go fully wireless? Some systems are also hermetically sealed and do not accept devices from other manufacturers. Here at Homematic IP, we have a different approach. We are guided by you!

The Homematic IP app

Configure all the settings for your smart home in the Homematic IP app, and use it to control, regulate and monitor your devices whenever you want – without providing any personal data!
A smart home system is particularly robust, interference-proof and reliable when the devices communicate with each other via wired connections. And data transmission is very fast with cables, too. That all comes together with Homematic IP Wired.
