The first Homematic IP devices can be linked up with the innogy range from summer 2019. Further products from the wide variety of Homematic IP devices by eQ-3 will steadily follow. eQ-3 assures availability and interoperability of Homematic IP at least until the end of 2030 – so it is worth looking into the future here.

Customers of Homematic IP will then also be able to operate their devices through the innogy hub if they so wish and control them with innogy’s powerful smartphone app with its extremely user-friendly and intuitive interface. The innogy hardware will, in turn, work with the Homematic IP communication standard in the future. innogy customers will feel reassured in the knowledge that they can continue to use their systems as before.

The seamless interoperability of the systems is the next logical step in the collaboration of the two companies that was first established more than nine years ago. innogy by using the "cosIP" protocol and eQ-3 with "Homematic IP" are both already based on IPv6, the next generation of the internet protocol standard. The Homematic IP protocol will be used by both companies in the future.

The two partners ensure a particularly high standard in terms of data efficiency and security. The full innogy SmartHome system has been awarded TÜV certification and Homematic IP is the only smart home platform that has gained VDE certification for its protocol, IT and data security.

Customers also appreciate the market strength of the partners, reflected in the penetration of the German SmartHome market. According to renowned market researcher "Berg Insight" (September 2018), the customer base installed by eQ-3 and innogy in the area of Whole home solutions is larger than the combined share of the next three manufacturers, plus all households with KNX in Europe together.
