Home automation consists in the automation of electronic and mechanical devices of households: from lighting to heating, from videosurveillance to videointercom functions. The goal is to simplify some domestic tasks, guarantee higher safety to people and generate energy saving, by using an ad hoc electronic system. Modern electric installations make it possible to optimize the use of electricity, water, gas, avoiding all waste. Moreover, home automation technology allows for carrying out several tasks from a single point, such as switching the lights on and off, set the heating, and close doors. Domotic installations create relation networks between household devices. Because of this integration, several functions can be simultaneously managed with a remote control or by pressing a button.
Each project provides a personalized answer to the user needs, and therefore the final cost can change according to very different parameters: safety provisions, project goals, furnishing requirements, etc.
While traditional installations are rigid, modern electrical installations are flexible and allow for creating a relation network between multiple household devices. This makes your daily life easier and dramatically cuts down waste, both in terms of money and time. Home automation is different from traditional installations because it can integrate household devices, put them into communication and use them at best, combining them in a very effective way.
The design of a domotic system requires specific skills that are certified by manufacturers.
Any or all of the features above can be installed in your home and integrated so that you have a single easy to use touch screen panel in each room. This allows you to alter any aspect of the environment and entertainment throughout your entire home.
Saving energy with your lighting saves you money and prolongs the life of your lights. Our audio visual solution can help you to reduce energy costs by using low voltage lighting, and automatic lighting controls. Low voltage halogen bulbs, which require a small amount of energy to power but produce a very bright light means the brightness of these bulbs can be reduced, by running them at a less than maximum brightness, with no loss of light to the naked eye whilst achieving considerable energy savings. Timers can be set to turn off lights at particular times or after a certain period of time. Light sensors for daylight harvesting can turn lights on or off to preset levels depending on the amount of natural light in the room. Motion sensors can be deployed to turn lights off when no movement has been detected in a room for a set period of time. Many other electrical devices can also be programmed to turn off after a certain period of inactivity.
A lighting control system allows you to set your ideal lighting scene for any activity, whether it be watching your favourite film, relaxing with a good book or preparing a meal. Home lighting control provides added security to your property and therefore your peace of mind. Increased energy efficiency will cut the cost of your electricity bills and you will need to replace your bulbs less often.
Lighting control enables your entire home, garden and driveway to light up with a single press of a button. Have a soft path of light appear automatically between the bedroom and the bathroom in the middle of the night or a glow on the treads of the stairs for a safer descent. Your lighting control system can be linked to motion detectors enabling your lights to flash on and off as a deterrent when activated or simply light to full for your peace of mind. Lighting control can also be linked to many other devices such as fire and burglar alarms and CCTV.
