The Carlo Gavazzi smart-house home automation system provides a cost effective solution for automating any home, now and for the future. Wiring is simple, using the same two-wire bus that communicates between components to also supply the power. Popular features include lighting control to set scenes and activating lights by motion or light intensity. Blinds and curtains can open and close automatically at the end of each day and can also be included in lighting scenarios. Heating can be controlled in individual rooms to save energy.
Dedicated detectors for smoke and intruders can be configured to make the house lights flash, sound an alarm and send a text message, water detectors can protect against flooding by shutting off the water supply to the house. Automation can also be extended to the garden for path lighting, gate control, irrigation systems and pool covers. All aspects of the system can be controlled and viewed locally on wall mounted touch screens and high-end remote controls (Philips Pronto) or remotely by internet or mobile phone.
