HIQ commander

HIQ Commander is a smartphone application (iOS / Android). It allows the user to control lights, blinds, heating/cooling and alarm.

When started for the first time, the application automatically detects connected devices. The following devices are supported:

  • light (on/off)
  • dimmer (0..100%)
  • RGB dimmer (0..100%, hue, saturation)
  • blinds (up/down, move to position)
  • scene (apply, inverse, memorize)
  • thermostat (setpoint, temperature, humidity, fan speed)
  • temperature (room, outdoor, water, wall)
  • energy (energy/power consumption)
  • alarm (4 zones)

For each device, the user can give a recognizable name and select an appropriate icon.

You can also control various devices, such as bathroom fans, table fans, electric heaters or audio/video systems. RGB dimmer includes a white temperature mode, which allows user to select between cold daylight and warm evening light. Thermostat allows for a separate temperature for each room.

HIQ Commander can work using a local network or through internet access, using HIQ Universe.
