Domotica

Domotica (also called home automation) is the domain of home electronics. The official definition of automation is: The integration of technology and services for the benefit of a better quality of living and life. This automation is not only about the integration of technology and control in home, but also from outside your home. With the automation of now a days you can operate this technology with your smartphone or iPad while you are on your way home.

Home automation means that sensors are responsible for the control of actuators through the intervention of a processor or controller or computer. Home automation is the ability of the industrial plant automation applied to a home.

Applications

It can be relatively simple setups, such as the shop door that opens and closes automatically when you approach them, or the lighting of the hall that automatically flashes on when the doorbell rings.

Most applications can be found in the kitchen and bathroom for comfort, safety and energy efficiency. Typical applications are:

  • heating
  • airconditioning
  • lighting

Kitchen

  • Replenishing your kitchen stock and place an order over the internet at your local supermarket.
  • Programming your oven.
  • Programming your coffee maker.

Bathroom

  • Thermostatic mixer for bath or shower, so that it emits water at a fixed temperature.
  • Your sauna on temperature when you come home after a tiring day.

Comfort

  • Temperature Sensors control the heating / air conditioning per room depending on the time of day and the presence of humans and / or animals.
  • Switch on or off the heating / air conditioning via your Mobile / iPad
  • Open your gate via Mobile / iPad
  • If you leave the house, the heating system goes to night mode.
  • Close the windows automatically (after a set time, temperature, etc.)

Safety

  • Intercom with camera and computer screen which connects with your mobile or iPad.
  • Burglar alarm by phone or SMS to control center or police.
  • Fire or smoke alarm to surveillance center.
  • Surveillance cameras for private use.
  • Open windows automatically when CO alarm levels are measured.

Climate Control

heating and airconditioning

  • Temperature Sensors control the heating / air conditioning per room depending on the time of day, and depending on the presence of persons eventual detected by proximity sensors.
  • These same temperature sensors can also take care of the opening or closing of blinds and shutters depending on the hour, the presence or absence of persons and the incidence of light.
  • Windows can be individually, operating in a small or larger network or automatic opened and closed (TipTronic), operated by a time limit, CO alarm, remote, temperature etc.
  • Switch on or off the heating / air conditioning via your Mobile / iPad
  • Operate the temperature via your Mobile / iPad.

Lighting

  • Sensors turn the lights on or off when someone enters or leaves a room.
  • Electronic dimmers adapt to the need of the light intensity in a room.
  • When you leave the house all the lights go out and the heating system goes to night mode.
  • When you go to bed, use one switch to turn all the lights off.
  • Setting a certain atmosphere. E.g.:
    • Romantic atmosphere: low light and romantic music.
    • Working atmosphere: light and no music.
    • Read atmosphere: lots of light at a certain location and tranquil music.

Efficient use of energy

  • Time setting does certain appliances (washing machine, coffee machine, sauna, etc.) start at the right time.
  • Deactivating certain outlets when you leave the house.
  • Pool cleaner is activated if there is a certain degree of contamination reached and / or runs at least once a week.
  • When opening a window, turn off the heating in that room.

Security

  • Opening and closing of locks by persons with the appropriate key, for example, an RFID tag and recording which and how many people are when and where and monitoring in particular, for example, who opens and closes garage doors.
  • Intercom with camera and computer screen which connects with your mobile or iPad.
  • Burglar either with light and / or sound, either by phone or SMS to surveillance center or police.
  • Fire or smoke alarm with sound or warning by phone to a fire station or automatic operation of sprinklers.
  • Surveillance cameras for private use.

Telecommunication and information

  • Flat screens showing television, video, DVD, internet, computer, video conferencing. The advantage consists in that an expensive high-quality screen can be used for all video applications. At the most suitable position of the room.
  • Connecting of the automation system to the Internet. This allows you to remotely log into all your systems of your home.
  • GPS connect to a person with a disability.

Hygienic

  • Taps opening automatically when you put your hands under the tap. This provides hygienic advantages: no need to close a dirty tap with your clean hands. It also reduces the spill of water because the tap stops running when you pull back your hands.
  • Automatic flushing of toilet or urinal and cleaning of the toilet after use.
  • Thermostatic mixer for bath or shower, so that it emits water at a fixed temperature.
  • Prevention of Legionella infection by automatically flushing the taps.

Addiotional

  • Mobility Monitoring using motion sensors and / or cameras, thus can be automatically determined that a resident needs assistance after eg an accident in the house. This is mainly used in homes for the elderly.
