Key points of modern living inHome solution offers: Excellent comfort and living standard Hi-end entertainment Hi level of security Energy consumption effectiveness Ecology
Comfort The control is very easy and totally intuitive There are variations of outer and ergonomic design of the control for all members of the family Whenever you open the window, inHome system turns down the heating It dims the light on the way to the bathroom if you get up at night It signalizes new post in your mailbox Before going to work it turns on the washing machine Automatic alarm clock quietly switches on music, slowly opens the blinds and turns on the coffee maker with your favourite coffee Before your arrival it heats the sauna
Entertainment Your family pictures, records from holidays, your favourite music, films in the highest HD quality, surround sound, the Internet, computer games, e-mails, reception of radio, television, digital and satellite broadcasting are all available from any room of the house or garden. The chosen programmes (e.g. series) are automatically recorded and what’s more, commercial free. Thanks to the multifunctional buttons you can at the same time start playing your favourite movie, simultaneously the lighting in the room dims, and possibly the blinds roll down, the projector and projection screen eject from the lower ceiling and your amplifier sets to the required loudness.
Safety At any time you have a perfect overview of the safe operation of your household – the alarm system, fire detectors, camera system and infra-red bolts. The infra-red bolts will allow you to prevent your children from passing the dangerous distance from swimming pool. In case of any nonstandard event you are informed via SMS (decreasing of the temperature in the fish tank, power cut or fallout in heating system etc.). After the last member of the family leaves the house, the alarm system automatically activates, the lights go off, the required sockets are deactivated, the blinds pull down and the air-condition / heating switch to the low mode. The system also allows the option of random lighting the rooms and by so doing simulate your presence in your absence (holiday…).
Savings – Lighting At any time inHome enables you set or change the setting of which switch will turn which specific light. One switch can control a whole group of lights as well and therefore create lighting scenes of a various lights intensity. Thanks to the LED units the coloured tones of the lighting can be changed as well. The switches can be also wireless – which means considerable costs savings during installation, however, it is possible to add them, or alternatively, to place them onto the glass. The central system also enables you to have a constant overview (even when you are not at home) of which room is lighted. If you are absent from the room for a longer while, the system automatically turns off. The outside intensity of light fluently regulates the intensity of the interior lights.
Savings – Heating inHome very effectively operates and monitors the energy consumption. The control system is capable of effective combining of various heat sources: Heat pump / electrical boiler / gas boiler Solar cells Air-condition Recuperation Fire places In case of rain it automatically closes the roof windows, in case of wind it draws back the terrace blinds. Thanks to this regulation a considerable amount of energy is saved.
Ecology The integration of alternative sources and their optimal and effective operation in connection to the low-energetic or passive buildings makes the inHome system very environmentally friendly.
