BeoLiving documentation

A focus on making life easier and more enjoyable has given rise to BeoLiving Intelligence, the first Plug & Play smart home controller for Bang & Olufsen products. BeoLiving Intelligence, successor of BeoLink Gateway, is the latest creation resulting from the Bang & Olufsen and Khimo partnership which dates back to 2006. BeoLiving Intelligence expands the way Bang & Olufsen products can work together, as well as allowing them to interact with many other brands of consumer electronic devices.

Together with the beautifully sculpted, simple and intuitive, companion BeoLiving App, all the magic that BeoLiving Intelligence allows is directly accessible and configurable at the palm of your hand. Use the BeoLiving App in your phone or tablet to easily control your Bang & Olufsen products alongside with the most popular Home Automation brands.

Out of the box, BeoLiving Intelligence comes in ESSENTIAL mode: easy to configure, install and start living the experience. But this is just a sample of all what BeoLiving Intelligence can do: by upgrading to BeoLiving Intelligence PRO through a one-time paid license fee, you will have access to a full professional smart home solution.

The next table shows the comparison between BeoLiving Intelligence ESSENTIAL and BeoLiving Intelligence PRO:
