We secure the building envelope

Smart Building Components

The building envelope is only secure if it is sealed tightly and efficiently by windows, doors and sliding doors. As a hardware manufacturer, we have had this expertise for generations and play a major role in closing these gaps in the facade. Our hardware solutions keep burglars out and the heat in.

In today's Smart Home, however, windows, front doors and sliding elements should be controlled at the touch of a button and integrated with lighting, heating and home theatre in a Smart Home system. Here, we help to make your building elements Smart Home ready - with drive motors for automatic opening and sensors for status monitoring. This way, occupants always have an eye on whether windows are open, tilted, closed or locked. With MACO's smart building components, you can create a home that is smart, secure, comfortable and energy-efficient.

How smart should it be?

How smart should it be?

This depends on the situation

Would you like to retrofit an existing property or do you manufacture for new constructions?

In an existing property, wireless sensors are suitable for monitoring. The advantage is that they are easily retrofittable, quick and cost-effective, hardware independent and do not require structural changes.

In new construction, you have every possibility. Wired solutions are suitable here. Whether drives for automatic operation or wired sensors for window and door monitoring – these require power connections to deliver their power transmission. They need to be planned in advance before walls are plastered. Of course, you can also combine wired hardware solutions with wireless sensors.

Want to secure building openings and control them on the go? MACO's opening and closure monitoring lays the foundation for Smart Home security that can grow with you. With little effort, you can create added value, for example with VdS-certified hardware solutions, which cost very little when buying, but later save a lot of effort and money. Residents always have their windows and doors in view.

Automatic control and operation

Automatic control and operation

Drive motors for more comfort

Future living already means that windows, doors and facade-high sliding elements in new construction should be operated or ventilated at the touch of a button. And the larger they get, the more important the motorised support becomes, making them barrier-free. And with the door lock, this is the basis for opening the front door with access control. Therefore, plan drive motors in the design of your elements, so that no further effort is incurred for the wiring and the power connection later on.

See our solutions for front doors, sliding elements and windows.

Motorised solutions

for doors, sliding doors and windows
Motorised door locks

Motorised door locks

Never stand in the rain again or search for your door key while fully packed. What we have always known about garage doors is now relevant for the front door. Automatic opening at the touch of a button via a wall switch, wireless remote control, finger scan or keypad and smartphone – everything is possible.

Use motorised door locks to set the basis for access solutions as well as delivering a plus in security. Automatic locking and unlocking, plus integration into the alarm system or the Smart Home system. The doorkey thus becomes a relic. Nowhere is motorisation progressing as fast as in the door area.

Motorised sliding doors
Sliding without force

with motorised sliding doors

Increasingly large, floor-to-ceiling glass surfaces are what's driving motorised sliding elements. But this is not a problem and in new construction a must for those who plan ahead. Turn 10 m² window fronts into lightweights by inserting the Comfort lift&slide drive motor into your element. This not only makes it child's play to move heavy doors at the push of a button. Thanks to simple wiring, you can also connect any access control and lock monitoring system for integration into Smart Home systems.

Motorised windows

Tilt and ventilate automatically

Window automation is no longer solely a result of accessibility, but also comfortable operation in all phases of life as well as ensuring good indoor climate. From commercial property construction to residential construction, good air for the protection of people and building materials is just as important in frequently used rooms as it is in unused rooms. The drive solutions from MACO and HAUTAU deliver exactly that, and there is a drive available for every requirement.

All the following window and ventilation solutions from MACO and HAUTAU have universal interfaces. This means that they can be operated automatically as a stand-alone solution as well as in combination with rain or room air sensors, along with being time-controlled and integrated into Smart Home systems.

The components and their interaction

Sensors

Tilt monitoring

Sensors are the sentinels on windows and doors and transmit their status information - open, tilted or closed - to the gateway. The mTronic also monitors the tilt position.

Sensors

The watchful eye

Sensors for locking monitoring are the guards on windows and doors and pass their status information, open or closed, on to the gateway.

Actuators

Triggers

Actuators are the "executing organs" in the Smart Home system, e.g. for sirens, light signals, and motors on door locks, windows or sliding doors. These take action as soon as they receive signals via wireless, cable or voice control - open, close or report alarm.

Drive Motors

Open at the touch of a button

These include drives such as the E-Hardware or the Primat skylight drive for tilting the window.

Drive Motors

Open at the touch of a button

These include drives such as the RC 2 tested Comfort drive for lift&slide doors.

Unlocking Motors

Open at the touch of a button

These include drives such as the motorised A-TS and M-TS door locks. With the A-TS, the motor can be optionally supplemented, with the M-TS it sits directly on the lock casing, which makes the lock very fast and quiet.

The Gateway

The Smart Home Brain and Control Centre

The gateway is the brain of the Smart Home centre, while the WLAN box or interface connects all components to each other and builds its own network between them using a communication protocol. In this way, it receives signals from the sensors and transmits them to the actuators. This ensures their interaction. The gateway is also known as a control centre, bridge, or hub.

The Communication Protocol

Here, everyone talks to each other

Regardless of which provider, the communication protocol establishes the connection between the integrated components and decides how well they "talk" to each other in the Smart Home system. This is done via a wired system such as KNX or via wireless protocols such as enOcean, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The more open and compatible the provider's communication technology, the more devices from different manufacturers can be integrated and managed together in a network.

Glossary

Local building protection

Local building protection

Without Smart Home connectivity and ideal if you don't want to be surprised while you sleep. Here, the sensors are coupled with blinds, light signals or sirens, which trigger when external action is applied. Very reassuring with tilted windows on the ground floor.

Opening monitoring

Opening monitoring

The opening monitoring system checks whether windows and doors are open or closed. Here, it is sufficient when the sash touches the frame. This does not mean that it is locked.

Lock monitoring

Lock monitoring

The lock monitoring system checks whether windows and doors are actually locked. Here, the status of the locking elements is queried.
