Smart living – next generation

"With frogblue, we offer installers and their end customers an innovative Smart Home & Building solution that sets new standards with regard to simplicity and functionality. Secure, affordable and pioneering. frogblue is the beginning of smart living for everyone!"

Dr. Ralf Hinkel, founder and chairman of the Board, frogblue AG

Revolutionary simplicity!

There are many solutions for the intelligent control of lights and electrical devices in buildings. But none is as simple as ours. Smart Home & Building from frogblue is high engineering with a human touch. And the quality? 100 % made in Germany.

What is intelligent living?

Smart living – the next big thing



The advantages of intelligent interlinking, control and monitoring of electrical devices and installations in homes and office buildings are plain to see. The diverse design possibilities presented by individually adjustable lighting scenarios – via smartphone, for example – improve living comfort dramatically. In addition, the Smart Home & Building offers significant improvements in security and economic efficiency.

Two examples from many: Switching the heating on and off as needed noticeably reduces energy costs, while electronic monitoring of doors and windows significantly improves security.

In consensus with leading experts, we believe that the rapidly increasing demand for Smart Home & Building solutions is currently only just starting to gain momentum.

One small circuit board ‒ one major advance

At first glance, just an inconspicuous circuit board that sits invisibly inside the recess-mounted socket. It is small and green, which is why we call it the "frog". But our frog has a lot to offer. It is highly intelligent, packed full of innovative functions, extremely easy to program and, thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy, a real communications virtuoso.

With just a handful of frogs and a control device – such as an app-enabled mobile phone – freely scalable smart home applications can be put into practice. Wishful thinking? No. This is now a reality.


frogblue system-premiere: The official kick-off of our complete system portfolio will be taking place at the Light & Building 2018.
Please visit us in Hall 9.1 | Stand D70.

We place our trust in the world standard

Bluetooth has established itself worldwide as the standard for close-range wireless communication. Bluetooth (BLE) is an ingenious further development which has the crucial advantage, that you can transfer considerably more data, which makes the system ideal for Smart Home networks. Our frogs have BLE on board. They take their energy directly from the recess-mounted socket in which they were (quickly and easily) installed.

Our frogs communicate with each other and with their control devices – such as a smartphone – wirelessly using Bluetooth. BLE makes sense: this world standard accommodates freely scalable systems, consumes a minimal amount of energy and ensures the highest level of security.

frogblue – one of a kind

"Smart living for everyone" is the vision that drives us.
An aspiration that has motivated our development team to ever higher levels of performance, with maximum simplicity, sustainable economic efficiency and the highest level of security always in the foreground. The result is a completely new technology which is far superior to conventional solutions.

 

Easy operation
Download the frogblue app to a smartphone or tablet. The frogs installed in the recess-mounted sockets report automatically to the app. The system can be configured and operated immediately. Simply and intuitively.

Trouble-free installation
The frogs are fitted into the recess mounted sockets by an electrician. Done. No cables, server, intermediate connectors or other additional components are required.

Infinitely scalable
The control device – a transponder, smartphone or tablet – automatically establishes contact with the nearest frog. And all of the frogs keep in contact with each other. This means that the system can be expanded as needed.

Privacy included
No IT infrastructure required: the system data and control data are stored and processed only by the frogs "in your own four walls". No data transmission to external servers.

Customisable expansion of the system
Everything from a single source: frogblue offers high-quality displays, presence detectors, door stations, window sensors etc. These components, with a modern and timelessly elegant design, can be integrated into the system at any time.

Wireless, whether a first installation or retrofit
The frogs communicate with each other and with the control device via Bluetooth Low Energy. This means: no cables to lay, no damage to walls by cutting out channels, no dirt during installation and no additional installation costs.

Steadfastly cost-effective
An optimum price/performance ratio is ensured thanks to the minimal power consumption, a maximum reduction in hardware, and the omission of all IT infrastructure. And frogblue is compatible with all common switch ranges.

The highest level of security
Thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy, 128-bit encryption is guaranteed. Moreover, the decentralised structure of the system ensures optimum fail-safety.

Ideal for retrofitting
Standardised installation sizes and a 100% wireless installation make frogblue the perfect solution for retrofitting in existing systems.

Simple and ingeniously flexible

frogblue offers revolutionary simplicity, brilliant performance and supreme flexibility. The system reveals its charm with the very first frog – and demonstrates its full potential when fitted throughout entire flats or commercial buildings. No matter whether these be new buildings or old. The frogblue principle makes a powerful impression, anytime, anywhere.

Why not start small?
Have an electrician install one frog in a recess-mounted socket. Plug in a lamp. Download the frogblue app. The frog and the app recognise each other automatically. And off we go: switch on the lamp, switch it off, dim the light, set a light timer. All using your smart phone, from the comfort of your sofa. A pleasurable experience.

 

Why not operate all of your electrical devices with your app?
Have a handful of frogs installed in the corresponding recess-mounted sockets, switches and electrical circuits. Done. The frogs contact and coordinate with each other automatically and register with your app. Enjoy simply editing your ideal configuration. Naturally, all of the devices can still be operated individually using their switches, just like before.

The frogblue system can be easily expanded.
Door intercom systems, door and window monitoring, information retrieval and control of your "smart home" can be integrated into the system at any time from anywhere in the world.

The frogs are installed and connected directly to the power supply by a specialist.
He knows which frog is best for each application. He knows the ropes and ensures that everything works perfectly from the word go. Expertise has its value – so that frogblue can be operated with effortless ease.

Dr. Ralf Hinkel, Chairman of the Board

Born in Mainz, he studied computer science and electrical engineering at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. In 1989, he received his doctorate there with a thesis on autonomous mobile robots for cleaning applications. Quadriga Lasertechnik GmbH, which he founded in Kaiserslautern, developed laser levels for Bosch, Würth, Stanley and Dewalt, using the newly emerging visible laser diode technology. After selling this company, he founded the listed company MOBOTIX AG in 1999 and developed network cameras and software for video security solutions as a technology leader in the field. With around 400 employees and an export ratio of 75%, a turnover of €86 million was achieved worldwide.

These business start-ups, which were always linked to newly emerging basic technologies, underline his strengths as a visionary and innovative developer with a good feel for the market, as do distinctions such as the Philip Morris Research Prize and the "Jugend Forscht" youth research prize.

His new ideas and his vision of making the Smart Home a reality, as a simple, wireless and easily affordable system, resulted in the establishment of frogblue AG in Munich, after the sale of his majority interest in MOBOTIX AG. Today, Dr. Hinkel is the Chairman of the Board of frogblue and is responsible for the company strategy and product development.

Nicole Huffer, Member of the Management Board, CSO & CMO

The technology leader in the field of digital locking and access control systems developed during this period from a regional company with 30 employees to a global group with subsidiaries in numerous countries.

In recent years, Nicole Huffer was a member of the Rat für Formgebung (German Design Council) and a member of the jury for the German Design Award.
