Gigaset elements – The system
Gigaset elements is an intelligent, sensor- and cloud-based system for the home. It is inexpensive, can be expanded in a modular manner and is easy to install. Sensors register information and for-ward it reliably to the smartphone.

The starter kit with base (base station), door (door sensor) and motion (motion sensor), in other words, the foundation for Gigaset elements, as well as siren (alarm siren) and window (window sensor), are on sale at present. “door and motion” can also be purchased as separate sensors that can be added. The camera module (with an HD camera) was recently presented and will go on sale as of mid-October. The Android and iOS-based app is available free of charge in iTunes and the Play Store.
