What is Smart living?

The ‘Smart living’ concept uses connected devices and technologies to improve your daily living and working comfort. Using digital technologies, your building will become more efficient and sustainable. Heating and cooling, lighting, security, etc. can be tailored to your habits or operated to your liking via buttons, tablet or smartphone. This increases your comfort and reduces your energy consumption. Moreover, it contributes to your security. For example, your home never looks empty, even if you are not at home for an extended period.

What is Smart Living suitable for?

As a wired system, Smart Living is suitable for both new construction projects and thorough renovations. The wiring makes your system extra reliable.



Easily create your desired home comfort level at any time using the user-friendly ‘Renson One’ app. You can operate your technology instantly, wherever you are, whenever you want. Moreover, you can save energy by gaining insight into your consumption and anticipating it yourself.



Do you want to connect all your technologies and connect an individual thermostat to a collective heating system? Smart Living does it quickly and easily. In addition, clients can gain insight into consumption at a collective (charging stations, utilities, etc.) and individual level to optimise energy management. Convenient and transparent.



Other buildings and even entire neighbourhoods can also be lifted to a higher level in terms of comfort and energy efficiency thanks to Renson Smart Living. For example, a smart school, a smart office building, hotel, etc. Discover the benefits of automation and optimisation in any environment.

How does a building management system work?

Renson Smart Living works intuitively. And this starts from the moment it is first switched on after installation. Create a smart home in an instant and make your daily living comfort easier.

The brain of your smart home

Central to the Smart Living system is the Brain or Brain+, and you can translate that quite literally. This module is the brain of your automation. It links the various inputs (switches, motion sensors, etc.), outputs (lights, screens, thermostat, etc.) and sensors (temperature, humidity, etc.) together. For example, automation possibilities can be created by connecting a light point, a switch and a motion detector.

A practical example

How this home automation system works and what Smart Living can do is quickly made clear with a practical example. Lights can be controlled via the switch or through the app. Additionally, it's also possible to link the light with a motion detector. Would you prefer for the light in the hallway to turn on at a dimmed setting when someone is detected? That's possible too.

The Renson One app means you have control at all times. Easily control your home automation system and monitor everything, wherever you are and whenever you want.

The different applications of a Smart Living system

Climate control

Climate control

Control your connected thermostat remotely and always come home to a pleasant indoor climate. You can set it up to follow a fixed schedule, or make changes if something changes at the last minute. Did you know for example that you can easily use a different temperature in the bathroom than in the living room?



Do you find yourself wondering whether the downstairs lights are off but don’t feel like getting out of bed? Or do you suddenly wonder, despite being in a meeting, whether you left the lights on in the morning? No problem. Use an all-off switch to turn off all the lights in the entire house.

Sun protection

Sun protection

You can keep your home naturally cool in the summer with sun protection. And with Renson Smart Living. Your home automation system can automatically control the screens and follow a preset schedule. Of course, you can always overrule the schedule for the best response to the current weather.

Smart sockets

Smart sockets

Smart sockets make it possible to switch power supply sockets on or off. For example, you can use your night lamp as an alarm clock, or completely switch off your digital TV box at night to save energy.

Providing insight into energy consumption

Providing insight into energy consumption

Would you like to know more about the consumption of your heat pump, washing machine, refrigerator or TV? You will receive a detailed overview of your consumption (electricity, gas, etc.) in the Renson One app and the web portal.

Pretend to be home

Pretend to be home

Not at home? No problem. Smart Living operates your lighting and roller shutters or screens automatically. This will make it seem as if someone is home, even when you’re not. You can bet potential burglars will think twice before taking their chances in your home.

Control from anywhere

Operate your Smart Living installation via push buttons in your home, or via the user-friendly Renson One app, also remotely. In the Renson One app you can operate the techniques in your installation, as well as find your insights into your energy consumption. Turn off all the lights before you go out the door, turn up the thermostat if you are going to work at home unexpectedly soon, raise your blinds from your bed, ... you can do it all with the Renson One app.

To measure is to know

Gain insight into your energy consumption and use it to your advantage. Smart Living keeps track of your consumption and sensor data so you can see the peaks in your consumption. By tracing this to a specific device, you can take action to reduce or better spread your consumption, which can make a world of difference, given the impact of the capacity tariff.

As a total solution for apartment buildings, this monitoring means sustainable comfort for both client and residents. The client gains insight into the consumption of utilities and other collective assets (inverters, heat pump, etc.) at building and home level.

Questions about the installation of Smart Living

Who can install my Smart Living system?

Feel free to contact us using the contact form and we will refer you to a recognised installer. Are you familiar with electrical installations? If you are, you should be able to install the Smart Living modules yourself.

What power supply do I need for my system?

Your Smart Living installation requires a 24 VDC power supply. Always use a separate fused power supply with the following minimum specifications:

  • 24 VDC
  • 1.25 A/30 W (may be higher depending on the number of modules used)
  • CE certified

What type of cable do I need to connect my Smart Living installation?

Smart Living DIN rail modules that are interconnected on the system bus require twisted pair and straight wiring. Cat5E or Cat6 are perfect cables to use for longer distances.
Please note: the system bus has a maximum total length of 600 metres and does not support branches.

What type of cable do I need for modules connected on the CAN bus?

Modules that are connected to each other on the CAN bus must always be connected with twisted pair wiring. For distances under 150 metres, a 2 x 2 x 0.8 (2 pairs, 4 cores) EIB cable can be used. For distances above 150 metres we recommend using Cat5E or Cat6 cable.

Does the CAN bus support branches or splits?

The CAN bus does not support branches or splits. These are only possible in a line/loop.
Please note: the last micro CAN on the CAN bus must be terminated.

What is the maximum length of a cable between the micro CAN and push button or LED?

The cable length to a push button or LED must not exceed 50 metres.

What type of motion detectors can be connected to my Smart Living installation?

The most important thing is to choose a motion detector with a potential-free output and a pulse function, and preferably a low-voltage motion detector so that it is "silent" (so that there is no click at any motion detection). Examples of this are

  • For surface mounting: Niko 350-41549
  • For recessed installation: Esylux PD-C360i/8 mini IC

Please note: motion detectors may not be powered via the CAN bus.

How can external relays for Digital Output outputs be connected?

An example connection for an external relay (Eltako ESR12NP-230V+UC (in “ER” mode)) for use in combination with lighting can be found below. If you connect another external relay, it is best to take into account the maximum load of the digital outputs (max 50 mA per output).


Which external dimmers can be used on my Smart Living installation?

An example of a compatible external 0/1-10V dimmer is the Niko 330-00701 module.

Can DALI be connected to my Smart Living installation?

Yes. The following components are required for each DALI bus (maximum 64 DALI addresses per bus):

  • 1x DALI Serial Interface
    • Article: 28806
  • 1x DALI Power Supply
    • Article: 27485
  • 1x CAN Control module
    • Article: 26086
    • Note: The first DALI bus can be connected directly to the Brain or Brain+ module, a CAN Control module is not required for this.

The connection diagram for these components can be found in the relevant datasheets.
