For centuries, people have tried to make their lives easier. Fire
was used to cook food and wheels helped to transport heavy objects. Over time, caves were replaced by increasingly comfortable houses. Simple shelter has become a home - a place where we feel comfortable and safe, with everything arranged according to our needs.
A smart house elevates our comfort to a new level, maintaining an even temperature, controlling lights and entertainment, ensuring security and helping to save money.
Irrespective of whether you feel you don’t have enough imagination or you have too much of it, Võrguvara is there to assist you in designing realistic, functional and reasonable solutions for your house. A house should not be smarter than the user and should only assist its inhabitants, making their lives easier. A smart house does not require constant checking and alteration. A year after moving into a smart house, you will find it quite natural not to look for a light switch when you enter auxiliary rooms, or that your favourite TV programmes will be automatically recorded while you are on holiday, and that cucumbers in the greenhouse are automatically watered. And the main thing is that a smart house makes life easier!
The ‘smart house’ concept
Many systems used in a smart house are also common in regular houses, such as heating, air conditioning, the internet, etc. What then makes a smart house special? The answer is the fact that these systems cooperate and are convenient to use. For instance, you can tell the house to look up weather forecasts on the internet or via a personal weather station and to set up the heating in advance of the arrival of a major cold front.
The heart of a smart house is a mediator, which distributes information between different systems, making them communicate with each other. After detecting that the security alarm system is switched on, the house activates an economy ventilation mode and switches off the lights.
Võrguvara uses open standards for communications between systems.
According to Võrguvara’s concept, decentralised intelligence provides better results, because cooperation between systems results in savings and increased comfort.
Customers are free to describe their dream house. The experts from Võrguvara help them to find an optimal solution to make the dreams come true.
Building a smart house does not significantly increase the complexity of the design process. Forward-looking architectural design companies already have the required expertise for designing smart houses.
