VMBSIG-V1 - Signum iot gateway

The Velbus Signum is an IoT Gateway for the Velbus home automation system. Its main functions are:
• to control your Velbus installation using an iOS app, Android app or browser on mobile devices (smartphone, tablet...)
• periodically sync the time on your Velbus installation with an NTP server
• time and date backup (48 hours) in case of power failure
• connect VelbusLink (Velbus configuration software) directly (with a USB cable plugged into the Velbus Signum, or an IP (LAN) connection)
• secure access to your Velbus Signum and home automation system from anywhere in the world

In the near future, the following functions will also be available:
• IoT gateway to allow integration/communication with other protocols
• advanced visual configuration of your Velbus installation (and connected systems)
• manually or periodically back-up your local Velbus project/settings on the Velbus Signum

The Velbus Signum is a DIN-rail module that is powered by and connected directly to the Velbus bus.


  • Only a qualified professional may carry out the installation in conformity with in force legislation and standards.
