About Velbus

Velbus is a modular system

Velbus is modular

Every velbus module has its own processor and memory. This means you do not need to install a central control unit. This also prevents your entire home automation system from being blocked by a central unit failure.As the velbus system does not require any master controller, you will only pay for the modules you really need. If you want to automate additional shutters, lighting points, dimmers, etc., you need only buy the extra modules. New modules will always be compatible with the existing range.

Velbus is a bus system

This means that you will only need a four-wire bus cable to connect the modules: two wires for power, two wires for data. The bus system is based on the extremely stable and reliable CAN bus used in the automotive sector.

Velbus basics

The most basic set-up has two modules: an input module and an output module. An input module uses short messages to send its status to the bus. An output module interprets these messages and executes actions relating to its programming.

Velbus compared to other systems

People often associate home automation with expensive systems, but nothing could be further from the truth. The price difference between a velbus and a traditional installation is minimal and even negligible when comparing the advantages.

Flexible system

As all controlling modules and lighting points act independently, all kinds of connections are possible. The system allows configuring all off or all on from multiple locations. You can also create moods (combining various lighting points), define time functions, etc.

There are so many reasons why you may need to change your setup at a given time. Shortly after you have moved in, you will need to make some changes without damaging your walls. The configuration software is free of charge, the settings can always be read and are continuously adjustable (without interrupting the system).

Since velbus is a modular system, your home will be ready for future evolutions. As velbus is being continuously developed, you will only need to add a module to expand your system. Even if you later decide to add a dimmer in the living room, you will only need to add the appropriate dimmer module. Your home will be ready for the future.

Tailor made system

The velbus system provides feedback without any additional module or development. You can couple feedback any way you want: a push-button in the living room can provide feedback for the light in the nursery...

If configured well, the velbus automation system will also save energy. Think of the light in the hallway that automatically turns off, the light on the drive that you will no longer forget (thanks to the feedback LED), the all off function that turns off hidden consumers, the heater that will switch off automatically...

Everyone can use the benefits of an automated home in his or her own way because of the many options and links. The added value your home or investment property gets from a home automation system is a nice extra.

Lunch has turned into an afternoon of chat and when you come home, the kids are already home from school. The heating was set to comfort mode from 16h, which means the study rooms are also pleasantly warm. With your smartphone, you had previously disabled the TV because you want your children to finish their homework


The family has had a cosy dinner and the shutters went down at dusk. You just tap the glass touch to activate the evening mood: the light in the room is dim, the lamp in the sitting area provides cosiness and the heating switches to a higher setting.
