It‘s in your hands

The intelligent ABB-free@home controller automates and optimizes energy consumption and more

A house is a complex structure entailing countless functions, especially if it is optimized for energy efficiency. Things can quickly become impossible without an automation system such as that provided by ABB-free@home for new buildings, and for retrofitting in existing buildings. This system provides a common platform for almost all technical housing systems. It is clearly presented on a device such as a tablet, from which the systems can be controlled and monitored intuitively, even away from home. This is how it gives occupants more time, comfort, safety, and customization. The system permits the control of blinds, lights, heating, air conditioning, and doorway communication. It makes saving energy child’s play. For example, the ideal and most comfortable temperature can be selected for each and every room. An eco-feature can reduce the temperature overnight if required.

The building's entire technology converges on a display where it can be controlled and monitored – including remotely, using a smartphone.

Blinds open and close automatically to prevent rooms from heating up in summer or cooling down in winter, whenever occupants are absent. The lighting also makes for a feeling of wellbeing. All of the lamps are networked and separately dimmable, and can be set to create atmospheric lighting scenarios at the touch of a button. Whether reading, eating, or watching television, occupants can control lighting in the palms of their hands. Previously memorized routines can be reproduced by the lights and blinds to simulate the presence of occupants. This means better security during vacations.

More comfortable and safer

Networked smoke detectors make the building safer still; not only do they warn acoustically, they also switch on all the lights in the apartment automatically and open all of the blinds. Video doorway communication makes things even safer, showing an image of whoever rings the doorbell. Even landing lights come on when the doorbell rings. ABB-free@home makes a building smarter, more comfortable, and safer. The additional cost over a conventional electrical installation is minimal. The system is also ready for the future because it can be updated. It has proven its worth in many private households since 2014; since then occupants have been saving energy and enjoying safety and comfort.
