Detached House, Biel/Bienne
Customer request: Versatile home automation system to control window opening with reminders when a window is open for more than X minutes, to control radiator valves, to manage lighting, and one that can be further developed in the future.
Window opening control
As a result of some oversights, this customer wanted a system that controls the opening of windows with an alert being triggered when a window is open for longer than a certain time.
We therefore installed FIBARO opening sensors on all windows. The customer now receives a notification on his phone as soon as a window is open for longer than X minutes (timer configurable by the customer).
Automatic heating management
It is very difficult to manage a stable temperature when using a manual system.
Depending on the outside heat, the number of people present, the opening of windows, etc., the heat of a room varies greatly.
The FIBARO valves we have installed allows the keeping of a constant temperature without ever touching the radiator. The valve opens and closes depending on the ambient temperature.
In addition, the customer has the possibility to set temperatures according to the days of the week and the time of day. This makes it possible, for example, to have a lower temperature at night or during the day when no one is home and a more pleasant temperature in the morning when you get up or when you come home in the evening.
Automatic switching system for electrical appliances
This coffee-loving customer did not have time to make his coffee in the morning because of the heating time of the machine.
Thanks to the training we gave him, he was able to program a plug that turns on his machine every morning.
He now has time to enjoy an espresso in peace with a machine ready as soon as he wakes up.
Basement light automation with power switch
In order to simplify the use of light in the basement, a motion sensor has been installed. This sensor detects anyone arriving in the basement and automatically activates the main light and also its brightness, measured by the motion sensor, when it is not sufficient.
This customer wanted to be able to force the light, so a mushroom switch was added. The latter can be placed when the customer wishes to deactivate the timer on the light and thus forcing the lamp to be turned on or off.
