The sensor family from Mayer & Co welcomes a new addition: the MACO eTRONIC wireless sensor. Once again, it has reliable EnOcean technology on board.

A question that occasionally arises when building houses is this: “What do we want to have—a smart home or a chic designer kitchen?” Smart home solutions still frequently get the short end of the stick. But what if homeowners could leave all their options open from the very beginning? eTRONIC makes this possible. The window manufacturer installs only the concealed plastic housing – which is smart home-ready. The wireless sensor is compatible with every fitting system, meaning that customers can add the sensor electronics at any later date. They then enjoy protection through the eTRONIC “lock monitor,” which communicates with a signal transmitter or gateway via EnOcean. It was developed in cooperation with Eltako – so it is perfectly matched to the smart home system of the electronics specialist.
