Smart Solutions for IFA 2018

At this year’s IFA, ComLine will once again be focussing in the topics of smart living / smart home, and showing how easy it can be to market HomeKit-capable products in combination with the Smart-Living-Finder™.

Who doesn’t wish for “a smart home”? Using your voice to control music and lights or a simple click on your mobile to alter the temperature in all your rooms. To make customers understand just how straightforward the concept of smart living and smart home is, ComLine is now presenting an absolutely unique sales concept for over-the-counter trade at IFA 2018.
With this concept, every interested trading partner can put together their own ideal, scalable smart home package at their point of sale and for their online presence. When Smart-Living-Finder™ and DigiShelf™ (the digital shop shelf) are integrated into the sales concept, the customer can experience the subject of smart home in a completely new, comprehensible and intuitive way.

„The over-the-counter retail trade has long been looking for ways of how to let customers experience the smart home concept in a really perceptible manner. With its Smart-Living-Finder™, ComLine manages to carry the customer off into a virtual world where they can digitally experience the automation and simplicity of smart home technology.“
Gil Schleyer, Deputy Sales Director Europe & APAC at Eve Systems (formerly Elgato)
On its stand at IFA, ComLine will be showcasing Apple HomeKit in association with Apple HomePod, iPad Pro, iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple TV, as well as Eve Systems, Fibaro, Nanoleaf and Philips.


„At last the HomePod has become popular in Germany, and will play an important role for dealers in this years-end business. Those who follow success of the billion dollar company know that Apple is taking the topic of home automation very seriously and in the shape of HomeKit it has developed a platform that will trigger immense impulses to buy in 2019. The HomePod is more than just an alternative to existing solutions, and in combination with HomeKit it will become the most important smart home standard!“
Kim Jannsen, ComLine Product Manager Smart Living / Retail
