Smart Home Automation

Intelligent home control solutions can be designed as part of a wider service to you. Intuitive solutions can be created uniquely to your designs.

The intelligent home automation system can not only control IQ’s heated or privacy glass, but it can be integrated with our external Umbris louvre roof system through a smart device.

Home automation can be made simple with integrated lighting control, home cinema, security and CCTV, Heating and Cooling systems, and multi-room audio systems.

From audio and cinema solutions that keep the whole house entertained to security systems that give you peace of mind wherever you are, the services can be tailored to meet a range of requirements.

With consideration to your initial cabling and networking we can integrate all of the above into one, easy to use app.

Electrical Technical Glass Solutions

The system can be linked with all automated glass installations from IQ’s Glass range. Control venting windows and roof lights, auto sliding doors or roof access boxes all through intelligent control. This can be integrated to offer a smarter solution that will allow you to have total control of your house from anywhere in the world.

Integrating the different sub-systems can make thing easier and more useful.

For example, turning all the lights off automatically, when they set the alarm (perhaps having them revert to a security mode that replays their normal usage to deter burglars). An entry phone from IQ Gates could be answered from pushing a button from a keypad or your smart device. Or add a concealed miniature video camera (viewable on any TV) and you have a discreet, effective access-control system.

Wiring Systems

It is important to consider the right cabling infrastructure.

Quality of your cabling solution. A ‘star-wired system’ and not a Token ring or Daisy-chaining will offer a more flexible solution.

A star wired system with a twisted-pair (CAT5e/6) sockets within a common hub for all services is imperative and will make a range of things possible.

Lighting control Systems

Scenes can be created within the lighting control system, creating settings for your wakeup conditions in the morning, setting a theatre environment to watch your favourite movie, locking up the house and turning on the security at bedtime. Each scene can be initiated with a single timed event or by pushing a single controller button.

Master on/off – This is a single button that can turn your whole house lighting off as you leave the house or set a welcome home mood. Featuring a single app control with a bespoke GUI (General User interface), specific to the homeowners needs.

Dimming Types – Trailing edge, Leading edge and Linear.

Ecclestone Square Hotel Smart Home Commerical

Intelligent Home Automation for Commercial Projects

Commercial properties and non-residential properties can benefit hugely from Automation. Predominantly within public spaces where lighting and heating can be better managed.

Using intelligent home automation commercial can help economically and environmentally. The guest can control the room using Vitrum glassware collection. Micromaster then sends information about the status of the guestroom to the hotel’s building management system, allowing the staff to carry out tasks such as switching unnecessary items off and turning down the heating/cooling when the room is vacant, saving energy.

simple- to-use technology enhances the guest's experience and contributes to the hotel’s positioning as an ultra-hi-tech urban retreat.

Ecclestone Square Hotel

Ecclestone Square Hotel is an elegant fusion of old meets new. Behind its doors lies an ultra-modern hideaway, an ‘urban cocoon’ with cutting-edge technology in every room.

The guest rooms are managed by Micromaster, which controls access to all of the guestrooms as well as the lighting, curtains and temperature within the rooms.

When guests walk in their room for the first time using RFID (radio frequency identification), the curtains partially open and close, the smart glass bathroom wall turns opaque and the bathroom mirror TV turns on.

Micromaster and Vitrum interfaces contribute to the design and luxury throughout the hotel and lower the property’s power consumption and carbon footprint.
