Simply use private Internet access


Simply use private Internet access

A DSL broadband connection is required to use the Webconnect functions. Under these conditions, continuous data exchange with the Sunny Portal and Sunny Places makes it possible to visualize the high-resolution data.

  • A packet-oriented mobile radio data transmission (e.g., LTE, UMTS, HSPA, EDGE or GPRS) is recommended only if the mobile provider offers an appropriate flat rate with support of VoIP (Voice over IP).
  • Since GSM routers use a time-based billing structure, they should never be used with the Webconnect functionality.

*These models will be available ex works Germany with Webconnect from 1st October 2014, and would expect these models to become readily available in the Australian market around February/March in 2015.
