Comfort can be linked to 3rd party equipment via the Universal Communications Module (UCM) architecture. For Lighting and Electrical control, special UCMs connect to EIB (European Installation Bus or Instabus) and Clipsal C-Bus via the respective Bus wiring, or to Honeywells Smartfit for heating control, or the ClickOn bus products.
Comfort has as standard built-in communication to X10 modules and can control scenes on Lutron Grafik Eye via infrared signals from any output. Watch out for new interfaces to other equipment in the future.

Icons can be placed on the screen to control any Comfort-linked appliance.
