Plugwise offers various ways to provide comfort and save on your energy. Choose from the different solutions and set up your own system. To get you off to a flying start we’ve created a clear overview of the different systems. This gives you the certainty that you’ve placed the right order.
Plugwise HNS (Home Network System) is based on Zigbee, however it does not work with other Zigbee systems. Through this protocol, the Plugwise products can communicate with each other. Plugwise HNS is a wireless network, just like a WiFi network. Once a Plugwise network is installed, the products will automatically find each other and forward the information. The Circle+ or Stealth+ are the coordinators within the network. You will always need them when you build a network. The gateway, the Stretch or Stick, ensures that you can control your system via the app or software Source.
With CoolDing you can control other devices through infrared. Connect CoolDing with the internet so you can control your devices using the app. CoolDing is not part of Plugwise HNS and cannot communicate with these Plugwise products.
The Smile P1 can read out your smart meter via the P1 cable. Connect the Smile P1 to the internet so that you can understand your energy consumption via the app. The Smile P1 is not part of Plugwise HNS and can not communicate with these Plugwise products. You can add the Smile P1 to the same software and app as available for your Plugwise HNS products.
Read your energy consumption per device/lighting. The extensive Plugwise range makes it possible to measure the energy consumption per device, to switch devices on or off, or to set timers.
For the best possible configuration of the Plugwise HNS network you can position the Stretch/Source in the middle, within reach of the Circle+. Position the other modules within 5-10 metres of each other.
