All sensors and actuators listed as compatible under Compatible products can be controlled and automated with everHome. In order for a 433 MHZ actuator to be switched to everHome, it must first be added as a device in the everHome portal and, if necessary, trained.
If a radio actuator receives data at a frequency of 433 MHz or 868 MHz, it is not necessarily compatible with everHome. Only 433/868 MHZ sensors / actuators listed as compatible under Compatible Products can be used in everHome. Feel free to contact our customer support if you have any questions.

If you have more than one 433 MHz wireless smoke detector, you will first learn to know each other the 433 MHz radio smoke detectors. Proceed as described in the operating instructions of the device. A group of 433 MHz wireless smoke detectors behave like a device over everHome. Up to 15 wireless smoke detectors can be accommodated in one group. If a fire or smoke is detected by a wireless smoke detector of the group, this wireless smoke detector informs the other group members about the fire or the smoke via a radio signal, so that all wireless smoke detectors alarm optically and acoustically. At the same time, the radio signal is received by the CloudBox so that a reaction stored in the portal is then carried out.
In this reaction, you can, for example, deposit a notification on the SmartPhone.
1. Combining multiple wireless smoke detectors into one group
One of the wireless smoke detectors takes over the role of the master, the other wireless smoke detectors become slaves. It makes sense to mark the master, so that it is later trained with the CloudBox.
When the group is taught in, the master sends out an address code which is accepted by the slaves during the teach-in process. The master changes the address code with each new teach-in process, therefore all wireless smoke detectors must always be taught together.
1. Prior to merging the wireless smoke detectors into a group, all sensors should be reset to factory defaults. To do this, press the button of each radio smoke detector for 12 seconds until the LED first lights up and then begins to flicker. When the LED flickers, release the button. Then briefly press the button twice. The wireless smoke detector confirms the successful reset with a beep and a flashing LED.
2. Hold down the button for approximately 12 seconds on the master until the LED lights up longer. While the LED is lit, release the button. The LED stays on. Now the master sends its address code to the slaves. In the next 30 seconds, step 3. must be executed for a slave.
3. For each slave, press the button for about 1 second until the LED of the slave comes on. Then release the button of the slave. The master and slave LEDs flash when the master's teach-in process to the slave was successful. Step 2 must be repeated for each slave and carried out within 30 seconds so that the master does not lose readiness to learn.
4. Briefly press the button on the master to end teach-in readiness.
At rest, the LED of a group's wireless smoke detector will flash approximately every 40 seconds. If a wireless smoke detector had an alarm during the last 10 minutes, it flashes approximately every 8 seconds.
2. Testing a group of wireless smoke detectors
For a test, all radio smoke detectors must be in the idle state, otherwise the test will fail. Press the key of a radio smoke detector of the group for up to 45 seconds. All wireless smoke detectors in the group alarm acoustically. However, the group's wireless smoke detectors will alarm at different times, so the radio smoke detector button must be pressed for up to 45 seconds.
If a wireless smoke detector signal is received by the CloudBox, no further alarm (of another group radio smoke detector) will be detected within the next 15 minutes to prevent double alerts.
3. Registration with email address and password
Log in to a browser with your email address and password on the everHome portal. In the everHome portal, all your rooms, devices, groups, scenes, schedules can be easily and conveniently managed.
4. Click on the 'Devices' selection
You may already have devices in addition to your everHome CloudBox. If these devices have been created by the demo mode, you are welcome to delete them.
5. Add a new 433 MHz wireless smoke detector
Add a new 433 MHz wireless smoke detector as a device by selecting the menu item 'Devices +'.
If you have grouped together the 433 MHz wireless smoke detectors - as described in the operating instructions of the manufacturer - to a device group, then select the appropriate manufacturer and as a device model the model name printed on the wireless smoke detector. Give the new device a name under Name. Select the room to which the device is to be assigned. You can add new rooms under the 'Rooms +' selection. The room can also be reassigned to a device later at any time.
Let the 433 MHz wireless smoke detector (master of the wireless smoke detector group) send a radio signal by pressing the button in the middle of the wireless smoke detector until it beeps. This process is usually described as a learning process of the wireless smoke detector to another wireless smoke detector.
If the radio signal of the wireless smoke detector is received by the CloudBox, this event is displayed. As long as the wireless signal has not been received by the CloudBox, the wireless smoke detector can not be added as a device, as not all parameters are yet available.
Press the 'ADD DEVICE' button to set up the 433 MHz wireless smoke detector (or the wireless smoke detector group) as a device. The device is now ready and can be used.
6. Notification to the mobile device
To receive a notification on the SmartPhone or iPhone when the group of wireless smoke detectors alerts, open the device's settings in the everHome portal. In response to the alerting event, file a notification on the mobile device. Enter the notification text.
7. Activate an alarm for a wireless smoke detector
For technical reasons, it is not possible to activate an alarm for a wireless smoke detector or a wireless smoke detector group via everHome.
