select a question below to find the answer

  • What's the difference between Aucasi and Aucasi Socket?

    Aucasi is the home automation platform we create, that's open for developers and hobbyists. Aucasi Socket is our first product.

  • Why is Aucasi Socket so much cheaper than other solutions?

    Aucasi Socket has all sensors integrated into a single product. Furthermore, multiple Aucasi Sockets can work together without the use of an expensive basestation.

  • Does Aucasi Socket collect and send any sensitive information?

    No, Aucasi Socket does not even require a working internet connection to function. All your personal information never leaves your house.

  • How does Aucasi Socket know when to switch devices?

    You program your own switching schedule within our free app (for iOS, Android). Users of other operating systems can use their browser to access and configure Aucasi on any platform.

  • How many Aucasi Sockets do I need?

    You only need one Aucasi Socket to control all your smart devices and one dumb device, you need more if you want to switch more dumb devices.

  • What do you mean by smart and dumb devices?

    Smart devices are devices connected to you router such that Aucasi can control them, like Philips Hue and smart thermostats like Toon or Nest. Dumb devices are simple devices with a plug like a light or fan.

  • Can I control Aucasi Socket from outside my home?

    No, that is not possible, but we believe that that is not necessary. Our philosophy is that you only need to configure it once, and then completely forget about it. That is real automation. The system knows you are away, and will switch accordingly, so you don't have to think about switching your lights when you are on holidays.
