Intuitieve bediening

Een huis waar ik niet moet nadenken over knopjes en snufjes. Eenvoudig te gebruiken, technieken gemakkelijk te regelen, zonder meer.

This is the method of management for the temperature, ventilation, electricity and other systems. The aim is to facilitate the user friendliness of systems for the residents.

5 things to keep in mind

  1. The controller: The type of intuitive controller is an important aspect for the use of the different devices at home such as lighting, heating, ventilation and as well as other features (example for setting the coffee in the morning before you are arriving in the room). This can be chosen on the basis of the different installations of the house. U can use a manual controller, an automatically regulating controller with sensors, or a combination of both.
  2. Management of the energy use: The controller can give you the ability to heat your rooms individually. Also it can give you the opportunity to control your energy use and you can easily managed it.
  3. Usability: The smart thermostat features an internal memory and learn what your individual heat requirements. The using of sensors, smells and noises can improve the usability.
  4. Interface between the temperature and the electricity: It is important that the interface between the temperature and the electricity is clearly related to each other and that they are together customizable.
  5. Compatibility: Before you have a smart thermostat in your home, go to your supplier to check if your boiler is appropriate. Because not all the boilers are compatible.
