activePilot Control

The WinkHaus activPilot Control system is a special type of contact striker plates which are mounted on the window frame. Properly placed, they cooperate with the hardwares  in the window sash. Their work is to constantly monitor the position of the leaf relative to the frame, control the air conditioning and / or cooker hood and cooperate with the alarm system. They are inserted in an invisible place – between the sash and the frame.

ActivPilot Control system – functional principle.

Mounted WinkHaus activPilot Control striker plater indicate which windows are closed, which are open and which are locked. At the same time, they are able to act as an additional function that controls the operation of heating, alarm system or kitchen hood operation. Thus, they form part of smartDom devices. Their most commonly used function – burglary sensor enables connection to virtually all alarm systems used on the market. There is no need to install additional external sensors. In many cases, activPilot Control sensors are consider when calculating discounts for  the home insurance premium.

Data transmission between the sensor and the receiving device is carried out by means of radio waves of appropriate frequency. This guarantees their high efficiency and reliability. This directly translates into an increase safety of householders. Each of the transponders and sensors placed on the window use a unique code (pair of devices). During the movement of the leaf relative to the frame, a signal is sent to the recording device (eg to the alarm system control panel) by activating its programmed process (eg initiating an alarm). An additional protection is also the possibility of recognizing the signal not of its transponder (so-called foreign signal) and the corresponding reaction.
