The Pellematic pellet boiler in the smart home

ÖkoFEN heating systems are optimally prepared for heating in the smart home. The MOD-BUS/TCP interface enables connection to many building management systems.

Every ÖkoFEN heating system features the option to establish these connections as standard. As a home automation component and connected to the internet, the heating system can simply do more:

  • Better coordination with all building services (ventilation, cooling, shading) and therefore a better indoor climate
  • Adaptation of the heating times to the building's utilisation – saves heating costs
  • Data retrieval or operation via the internet – greater convenience
  • Adaptation of the heating system to the current weather conditions – no overheating and lower heating costs
  • Access to the heating system for Customer Service – better system support

 

In the name of personal privacy

 

At ÖkoFEN, we consciously decided from the very beginning to neither collect nor evaluate our customers’ data. We strongly believe that every person has the right to unrestricted privacy within their own four walls.

 

Heating control on the move

 

The myPelletronic app allows you to operate your heating system from anywhere in the world where there’s an internet connection. Owners of a second home, commercial plant operators and on-call building service engineers all now want remote access to the heating system. The app can also replace a room controller, because people almost always have their mobile phones with them.

Furthermore, the app offers the benefit of connecting mobile technology to the heating system. This means that it knows when you’re further away from home than normal and can remind you to activate energy saving mode.

  • Greater convenience in operating your heating system – now also possible from the comfort of your sofa.
  • Automatic energy saving mode saves even more heating costs
  • Retrieval of all system data around the clock

Technical requirements for the online connection

All ÖkoFEN boilers are equipped as standard with an Ethernet interface for online access from a PC, smartphone and the free myPelletronic app.

The pellet heating system can be monitored and actively controlled from a PC or smartphone via the my.oekofen.info online portal. This grants full, password-protected access to the programming unit. Furthermore, the platform can be used as a remote maintenance portal (Support Center)

by commercial system operators, customer service installers and ÖkoFEN's in-house Customer Service department alike. Everyone with responsibility for multiple systems has a complete overview. The Support Center allows all systems to be monitored from one access point. The clear and simple design of the user interface is a major benefit. Systems with differences from normal operation automatically acquire a higher ranking and a colour coding.

 

Installation requirements

The requirements must have been met on site by the time of commissioning. If this is not the case, then commissioning of the online function cannot take place and further technical support is required.

  • Permanent internet connection with router (DSL, UMTS, LWL, cable)
  • Fixed or dynamic internet IP address (with mobile routers, ask the SIM card supplier in advance whether external access is possible)
  • Administration access to the router for configuring port forwarding (IT knowledge required)
  • Network connection to programming unit on boiler (alternatively wireless bridge with network cable or DLAN (network via power supply) between master controller and router)
  • Port 587 (SMTP) on the internet router must be enabled for sending email (standard on most internet connections)
  • Fixed network IP address (local network) for Pelletronic Touch online
  • DNS (Domain Name Service): Pelletronic Touch online: Field D1 (DNS Server 1) optionally D2 (DNS Server 2) must be set in the IP address settings on the programming unit.
  • Access to the my.oekofen.info and weather.oekofen.info servers must be possible (firewall settings)

Important:
In spite of security measures such as encryption of the connection, there is a residual security risk of illegal intervention. In order to minimise this risk, we recommend the use of client-side security measures for detecting and repelling attacks from the internet.
An IT expert must be called upon to establish the network connections and set up the IP address, email service and router. Depending on the internet service provider, additional running costs may be incurred in order to meet the described requirements.

 

Access to Touch energy management via MOD-BUS/TCP

A MOD-BUS interface allows the Pelletronic controller to be connected to a building management system. Configuration requires programming skills for the relevant system. A parameter list is available to download.
