Networking the installation

UNLIKE TRADITIONAL INSTALLATION, IN A HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM ONLY ACTUATORS AND OUTPUT DEVICES NEED TO BE CONNECTED TO THE 230 VAC POWER SUPPLY
Sensors, switches, controls, displays and other input devices work with the only connection to the bus network that is powered by SELV voltage. This results in a considerable simplification of the installation that is particularly advantageous. In residential buildings the wall ducts would be quickly saturated by the cables needed to carry out advanced functions through a traditional installation.

Scalability

WHEN YOU DECIDE TO REALIZE A HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO IMPLEMENT IMMEDIATELY ALL FUNCTIONS.

You can start with a set of basic functions and then complete your system step by step, according to your needs and budget. This is made easy by the native modularity of the home automation technology.

The condition for this is to accurately plan in the design phase a full predisposition of the system. It means a very low additional cost, but offers remarkable advantages in the future. In fact, it allows the later expansion and completion of the system with minimal impact.

THE NEEDS OF BUILDING USERS CHANGE OFTEN OVER TIME.

In residential buildings the different stages of life and the evolution in the composition of the family require to change the use of the rooms and the functionality of the installation.

In these cases the traditional installation reaches its limits.

Only a system of home and building automation can be reprogrammed and expanded during its life in order to flexibly and quickly adapt to changing needs.


Energy efficiency

4 CLASSES OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY BASED ON THE HOME AUTOMATION LEVEL ACCORDING TO EN 15232:
the standard that considers the contribution of home automation for the energy efficiency of buildings.

A
high energy performance
B
advanced
C
leading standard
D
not energy performant
