EEBUS is an open standard to connect devices across manufacturers and industries. The primary goal is to increase energy efficiency.
For the latest information on applications and capabilities, visit the website of the EEBus Initiative.
EEBUS specifies various UseCases.
The Loxone system currently only supports the HVAC UseCase.
The devices are integrated via the network using the SHIP protocol.
|The Miniserver Gen. 1 does not support EEBUS!|
Vaillant offers EEBUS enabled heat pumps, which can be integrated as described in the configuration example.
