Automatic heat protection

VELUX ACTIVE automatically protects your home from excessive heat by closing your electrically operated VELUX blinds, awnings and shutters on hot days.

Set personal preferences

Want to swap your alarm clock for a sunrise or air out while you’re at work? Customize your indoor climate with VELUX ACTIVE.

What we measure

Indoor Climate Control

Our smart sensor monitors temperature, CO2, humidity and light in your room. You can create personalised automated settings to keep indoor air quality health, and its accuracy gradually improves as it learns to understand the indoor climate of your home.

Indoor Air Quality Dashboard

With the VELUX ACTIVE dashboard, it’s easy to learn about the air quality of your home.

The new indoor air quality dashboard displays the status of the room, notifying you instantly if the air quality is good, or bad.

You can now view the history of temperature, humidity and CO2 levels, for a 24-hour, 7-day or 30-day period, displayed in an easy-to-read donut chart.
