Digitalization has long since arrived in our day-to-day lives. An increasing number of devices are being controlled via a smartphone or tablet app. The garden area is by no means excluded from this. Networked devices are intended to make life easier and more pleasant, while also saving energy and money.

VDE Global Services offers operating instructions to ensure that there are no problems when setting up the equipment - for instance when running the cables used by mowing robots. With our so-called Smart Manuals, consumers are shown, in an effective and efficient way, how the set-up is successfully carried out. And that in every language. 

Safety ought also to play an important role in the green oasis of well-being. Regardless of whether functional safety, product safety or information safety, with networked devices - the well-being of oneself and that of the family is optimally protected if the products are labeled with the appropriate VDE symbol. And, to ensure functionality, it is imperative that the devices are suitable for outdoor use. You can identify this, for example, by the VDE symbol for the protection class IP44. Stop by and let us advise you on your product.
