The free app "Jumpflex-ToGo" brings the power of PC-based configuration software to a mobile device. Configure input and output parameters via a smart phone or tablet PC on an Android basis via a finger swipe for the 857 Series transducers. Likewise, you can easily view the configuration data and the actual measured value. The Wago 750-921 Bluetooth adapter will communicate between a smart phone and transducer.
Varies with device
Control lights, shades, temperature, keypads, and more in the comfort of your home or from anywhere in the world—the office, the airport, the beach. Set your home to a comfortable temperature when returning from a trip, ensure lights aren’t left on, and shades aren’t left open while you’re away. Additionally manage multiple RadioRA 2, HomeWorks QS, and HomeWorks Illumination systems in the same app.
