The big innovation of the ONLY automation system is that electronic commands substitute the traditional mechanical switches, maintaining the electrical switching on the same spot. Because of that, it is possible to install automation on an existing house if you change the wiring so that Phase, Neutral and Bus get to all command points.
On each point it is possible to install touch panels with 2, 4, 6 or 9 keys, providing flexibility of control without increasing the number of commands.
Today you have wall switches for ceiling lights, foot switches for standard lamps, switches for table lamps and lots of more switches. You might want different lighting when you’re watching TV than while you’re eating or working. This means you have to go to the switches every time, turn them on, and then back off again. But there are comfortable, convenient ways of doing that. In your Smart Home you can set your own lighting scenarios, for example for watching TV or eating, or when you need maximum lighting.
At just the touch of a button, you can switch all of the lights that make up a scenario on or off in one go, set them to the desired intensity, and soon you will even be able to change the lighting colour. Thanks to the integration of Philips Hue lighting, our system makes it possible to create individual colour designs.
You will be able to develop your own creative ideas, integrating picture lights, lights on shelving or lights in glass cabinets into your lighting design. New light sources will allow you to create interesting lighting objects as artistic elements to decorate your home. You can integrate them all together into your own scenarios and turn them all on or off in the simplest of ways.
Cutting out disturbing light sources is also an important part of lighting control. If it’s too bright for watching television, then choose the ‘TV’ scenario and the blinds will be altered to a suitable position.
There’s more to lighting than just light. Create your own pleasant lighting scenarios.
