Intelligence and Automation/


Smart buildings are easier to manage, operate and control. Automation helps buildings to meet environmental and financial objectives.

Automation brings real benefits to architects, designers, contractos, building owners, users and all stakeholders of the industry.

Every building can be automated for different purposes, from large office complexes to the average household. All applications can be controlled with a single touch panel. 

The following are the advantages of automation:

  • Low operating costs result in considerable energy savings: Control lighting and heating, switch them on only when it is required. This can be programmed depending on time profiles, presence and exterior conditions. This effectively translates into higher energy efficiency. 
  • Interlinking all the communicating devices using a single bus, reduces design and installation time considerably. The programming and design of all devices, regardless of the manufacturer can be carried out using just one application. 
  • The installation is easily extendable and can be easily adapted to new applications. The existing bus installation can host additional new components with ease.
