All locations. All systems. One app.

Up to four locations can be added to the Siedle app: apartments, holiday homes, offices, branch offices or storage spaces. The Siedle app reliably connects smartphones and iPads to all stored intercom systems – regardless of where you are and the installation system used.

This feature will be released with the next update of the Siedle app. Installed apps are automatically updated depending on the settings on the smartphone.

Siedle app hosted in Germany

Smart Home. Hosted in Germany.

At the heart of the intelligent Siedle IQ system lies a cloud-based server. It makes mobile door communication possible for all Siedle systems: Access Professional, In-Home bus, 1+n and 6+n. Communication is encrypted – both between system and server and between the server and the Siedle app. So there is no personal data on the server that could be used by unauthorised persons.

FAQs – frequently asked questions

There can be several different reasons for this, please try the following to resolve this (the settings paths given may vary slightly between Android versions):

  • Restart your device

  • Check that you have a stable Internet connection

  • Make sure that app notifications are activated in the Siedle app: To do this, go to Android settings → Apps & Notifications → See all apps → Siedle app → Notifications → activate "Show notifications".

  • Check whether background data is limited for the Siedle app: To do this, go to Android settings → Apps & Notifications → See all apps → Siedle app → Mobile data and WiFi → activate "Background data" and "Unrestricted data usage".

  • Deactivate the battery stamina mode or exclude the Siedle app from this function: To do this, go to Android settings → Apps & Notifications → See all apps → Siedle app → Advanced → Battery → Battery optimisation. Find the Siedle app in the list and select "Don’t optimise".

  • Deactivate the battery stamina mode or exclude the Siedle app from this function: To do this, go to Android settings → Apps & Notifications → See all apps → Siedle app → Advanced → Battery → Battery optimisation. Find the Siedle app in the list and select "Don’t optimise".

  • Check whether you have the latest version of Google Play Services installed and update this if not.

Please also note the following:

If you actively stop (force stop) the Siedle app via the task manager or the Android settings → Apps & Notifications → See all apps → Siedle app → "Force stop", then no further notifications will be shown for a short period (max. 90 seconds).

There are several third-party apps that can affect how push notifications are shown. These include anti-virus, energy-saving and system optimisation apps. Please disable these apps for test purposes and check whether this improves the Siedle app signalling.

Camera

This is required for registering the app on your Siedle system using the QR code. The permission is therefore required for registration in every case, even when there is no camera on the system side. Afterwards you can disable the permission for the camera in the operating system settings if you wish.

Microphone

This is required for door communication. Access to the microphone is needed to use the Siedle app. Without this access, door calls cannot be established with the mobile end device.

Location

The Siedle app requires location access for commissioning the IQ HTS via Bluetooth. It communicates using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), for BLE there are two usage scenarios:
Transfer of small data volumes between devices in proximity.

Interaction with proximity sensors such as Google Beacons to offer users an individual experience based on their current location (used, for example, for key finders).

Siedle uses BLE for the first scenario. Compared to classic Bluetooth, BLE uses considerably less power. This is needed so that Bluetooth transmission with the IQ HTS is possible without requiring additional power. Android does not differentiate between the usage scenarios, basically all required permissions are requested. To support the second usage scenario, location access is required, even though no location data is required or used by the Siedle app.

Once commissioning is complete, you can disable the permission for the location in the operating system settings if you wish.

In the case of the Siedle IQ in-house telephone for the 1+n system (Siedle IQ HTS), the QR code is on the device (under the receiver). This is reused for each log in. If the QR code is missing, a second QR code can be found inside the device.

If it is a Smart Gateway or Access Professional, the QR code can be generated in the administration interface in the browser. The QR code is generated when a new app user is created in the system. This can only be used once. Please ask your administrator/electrician about it.

Full function for all entrances

When there's a door call, the Siedle app shows the location it's coming from and which entrance. Users can open the door, talk to visitors and – if there's a video system – also see them.

All locations in a single menu

Location management is extremely easy: Navigate to the relevant menu item, create, change or delete new locations, entrances, names or individual icons. It really is that easy.

Image memory for security

Who stopped by, at what time, location and at which door? The Siedle system's image memory sees it all. Image data can be called up at any time and deleted in line with data protection regulations.

Residential building example

A practical solution for owners: in addition to your own apartment, you can monitor your child's student flat or your holiday home. Even across countries.

Residential and commercial example

The ability to connect several systems provides literal freedom of movement: lawyers, doctors and tradespeople can link their homes and their offices, surgeries or workshops with a single device.
