eQ-3 is a leading innovation and technology company for home control and consumer electronics. With more than 200 different types of products, eQ-3 claims to provide the largest product portfolio in the industry and has more than 25 million wireless devices in more than one million households. We asked Jonas Deicke, the company’s International Product Manager, to tell us more about their smart home brand Homematic.

Homematic is one of the only “whole home” solutions in smart home. You might hear of many companies that are doing “single use case” solutions, for example just for lighting. Our philosophy is to offer components for each and every sector of the smart home. We are starting in heating, with a radiator thermostat that replaces your existing unit. Then there are wall thermostats, window open detection and so on. There are also under-floor heating components, as well as products for lighting. These start with the single switch socket that you can just put in your power outlet, but we also have integrated solutions for 230 volts, where you can put your branded switch on top. The portfolio is not only wide, it is also deep. We also cover shading, with roller blinds and so on, security aspects, with alarm solutions, water detection, smoke detection and so on. We cover all aspects of an automated home.

What are your key differentiating factors?

Our solution is completely anonymous. We don’t collect any data from our users. You even don’t have to log in with your email address, and we don’t know where you are. This is not the case for most smart home solutions. And we cover solutions from plug & play right up to those for installers.
