    Hi, I’m hoping someone has experience of the home automation plugin and would kindly explain how this works in practice as I can’t find anything on the m2p website

    I have read that the m2p can control homematic devices, but there is also a mention of the fritzbox, do I really need this?
    And then how does the m2p talk to the things like the radiator valves,

    Sorry for the dumb questions but if anyone out there could point me in the right direction I really would appreciate it

    Hi alex,
    The homematic plugin is for people using homematic, a German home automation software. The fritzbox can complement this system by checking whether people are active in the home environment. You can check out the initial topic for Max2Play and homematic on the homematic forums: http://homematic-forum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=22860 (google translate to English).
