Here is a straightforward guide to the benefits of having an intelligent home automation system – covering ‘what it is’ and ‘what it can achieve in your home’; how it can increase family security, save energy and afford more comfort.
The Comfort Intelligent Home System brings together an integrated intruder alarm with home automation that controls lighting, heating, curtains and blinds, appliances, audio and video, all cleverly functioning together.
It is controlled from keypads, touch-screens, remote controls, a mobile phone, by computer, or automatically via preset time programmes.
Door security systems are becoming increasingly popular and are proving to be especially useful for elderly or disabled people, providing both security and peace of mind.
Types of Door Access Systems – There is a wide choice of access control systems available from cheap DIY devices, to the more complex hard- wired door security systems.
Video Systems – This type allows visual confirmation of visitors and remote door access into a property, giving both security and calm to the occupants.
Features of home automation systems such as the Comfort Intelligent Home System from Cytech Europe, can provide a major input to the Lifetime Homes Standard, as well as to Assistive Living and the homebuilding industry’s targets for Sustainable Homes, in line with the new mandatory regulations.
Benefits offered by the Comfort System include: Interactive Voice Menu that can operate in any of nine languages allows Comfort to be controlled from any remote or home telephone. The real time status of the lights and appliances can be announced so you can check before switching anything on or off. Reminder Messages and Voice Announcements Triggered by Events: Comfort can be set to play back recorded reminder messages on talking keypads, or the telephone to remind the user to take medicine, for example, as a wake-up call, or to warn if any motion is detected in the home. Dial Out to Alert Carers: Comfort dials out to carers or family members, if there is no activity in the home for a longer than usual period of time. The carer can talk to the person in the house via any of the keypads. An emergency button on the keypad can force a dial out to the carer or family member. Conditional Logic Programming; Comfort’s extensive Logic Programming capabilities allow conditions to be tested up in order to determine the actions to be taken; for example, after dark, and the doorbell is pressed, switch on outside lights and play an announcement, or greeting message on the door station, and announce on the keypad that a visitor is at the door. Intercom: Comfort’s talking keypads communicate with other keypads around the home and with the door station. Home Security: The range of Comfort door stations including those with a camera, let the person at home speak with the visitor and also see them before opening the door. The door can be opened via any phone or keypad in the house. Heating, Lighting, Appliances, Curtains, Blinds can all be monitored and controlled by Comfort to help with energy-saving, home security and convenience.
