What is a Smart Home?

A smart home is a solution offering its owner to have absolute control – supervision on his/her residence, while not being there inside, via his/her mobile phone, via the internet, the PocketPC and the PC.
Consequently, it offers you and your beloved ones the best security solutions.Anytime you wish, you can get informed on the residence status, regarding the lighting/shutters, the heating, the security system and many other systems/appliances in your place.
We offer the necessary presentation space and our customer enjoys the opportunity to watch all the applications and solutions offered by the smart home in full working condition.

What kind of wiring needs the “Smart Home”?

No wiring at all! The systems don’t require any more wiring in the residence apart from the conventional wiring.
  • For the lights / shutters / curtains / garage doors control:
    Only the 220V installation wires are required, as in a typical residence.
  • For the security system control:
    Weak wires are required, as in a simple alarm installation.
  • For the heating/cooling system control:
    In the case of a digital thermostat, a utp wire is required till the point where a controller will be installed. 
     If the control requires only On/Off settings, then no change is required to the standard structure.
  • For the Audio / Video systems control:
    In this case and, in particular, in solutions related to audio and video distribution, a wiring is needed from a central point to every room we wish to install the system in. In this case, an official technical support team from our company assumes to prepare a study for the place for the right solution structure and application.

What is X-10 / S-10?


X-10 / S-10 is a “communication protocol” which enables compatible devices to communicate with each other through the place’s electrical installation (the current wires). Imagine that this communication is performed through the current wires, between a transmitter which sends the data and a receiver which receives them.
  • What are the X-10 protocol benefits?
  • It is free of charge
  • It doesn’t need any special electrical installation or wiring
  • It offers full automation solutions in the following areas:
1.       Lights
2.       Electrical appliances
3.       Security Systems
4.       Cooling-Heating Systems
5.       Audio/Video Systems - Audio/ video distribution
6.       Automatic Watering System
7.       Electric Shutters-Tents-Garage Doors
8.       Data - Tel - Sat - CCTV
  • If offers security and saves energy and time
  • You can check more than 256 appliances and lights
  •  It is long-lasting (automations based on x-10 technology last more than 20 years)

The company EXIPNA SISTIMATA L.P., as far as automation solutions are concerned, is a company with experience and real interest in “smart ideas" rendering your stay at home easier and more joyful.

Designing the Smart Home

Starting out

What should I know from the beginning?
The wiring structure for the lights automation is the same we would use for a standard residence construction.This means that in this case the electrician of the residence can do the installation in the conventional way.

Is there any difference in the way the electrician does the 220V installation?
The only extra thing that is needed and is not found in older conventional installations is theneutral”, whose presence is necessary in the switch.
The companies manufacturing PowerLine systems have of course detected this problem and have created products not requiring the 220V "neutral" support in the switch. (Related article - diagram)

What kind of products need to be installed in my residence for the lights control?
 There are tenths of different products, which offer an individual solution for each case.For instance, if we wish to control a light line, we can use the corresponding module (micromodule) behind the switch we have already chosen and control it through the various controllers being at our disposition.In case of a commutateur, for instance, there is the corresponding module (micromodule) for the installation also behind the switch.Moreover, our product range includes switches with indicators for better lighting status depiction.
The system requirements don’t include any extra installation in the residence, apart from the modules behind the switches (such as systems inside the panel, for example).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What kind of switch material can I choose?
The customer can hereby choose the switch material he/she wishes among a variety of products and brands available in the market, such as Vimar, Legrand, etc.

These are wire systems or wireless systems?
 
All systems offered by our company are wire systems.The data transmission is performed through the 220V electrical wires already existing in the residency.This operation could also be performed wirelessly through the use of RF signal reception systems and remote controls. (Detailed information on the operation mode)

Installation

When should the systems be installed in the switches?
The installation of the systems can be done any time in the residence, since we shouldn’t forget that the already existing wire installation is conventional, meaning that the residence can operate normally even without the automation systems (no commitment system).Relative installation example





 

 

 

 

Is there any other repair work needed in the residence?
NO. The only work is done behind the wall switches and only in the switch box without causing any damage to the residence walls.

Is it possible to install part of the light automation and install the rest of it later?
Sure you can, the light automation can be installed gradually and the user can select the parts he/she is interested in each time.

Does your company assume the system installation disposing of its own technical support team or is it assumed by my electrician?
Our company disposes of technical support teams to offer the best possible services to its customers.However, if the electrician is in the residence, he/she can also install the systems, since the installation is a simple and fast procedure.

Subject:How much time do you need to complete the installation needed in a smart home?
 
The installation regarding the lights is generally a simple and fast procedure.In other words, the installation of 20 light lines (20 circuits) needs only one day, in the case of a standard installation in a residence.

What is the warranty offered for the material provided?
 Every component related to the smart home has a one (1) year warranty from its manufacturer with component replacement.

Do you offer a good operation warranty for the applications installed in my residence?
Our company offers a 2 year good operation warranty for the applications installed in the residence, with on site support.This warranty can be extended based on the machine maintenance yearly contract.

After the special switches installation how can I control them?
The control can be performed in many ways.
In our internet sites you can find several products which will enable you to control your lights.
Some of these products are table controls whose installation is amazingly simple, since the only thing we need to do is install them into an electric socket in the residence. The user has therefore the possibility to transfer them where he/she wishes or use more than one controls, given their low cost. These controls send data through the 220V supply to control our residence switches, so no other equipment is needed.

For more demanding users
, there are also the programmable controllers (via computer and simple ones), which enable the user create multiple automation scenarios. For instance, using the alarm peripherals, such as the motion sensors, the user can automatically turn on the lights if motion is detected and under the predefined time conditions he/she wishes. (the alarm need not be necessarily turned on, since the motion sensors are always turned on).

The user can also control the residence operation through Wireless Screens, tablet pc or Win XP UMPC, and control the residence operation locally, but also remotely via the Internet network.

How much does this cost?
The Smart Home applications are really affordable for everyone. The Smart Home offers the user functionality and serves as a guide so that each user can select the operations that better suit his/her needs.

In most cases, the cost ranges from 1% up to 3% (for more demanding users) of the home value.

For instance, for a 100 sq meters residence, the user could select some basic applications whose the cost would not exceed 1% of the home value. See the ready solutions proposed by our company.

The most important is that Exipna Sistimata allows the interested party to create his/her own smart home gradually, in other words, if there are 10 light lines, the user can automate the five (5) lines first and then the other five (5). This is due to the fact that the wiring required is the standard one used in a simple residence.

The automation solution we offer is based on a simple technology which represents 75% of the Smart Home installations in the USA, 70% in Great Britain and over 35% in Europe, featuring a 25% rise the last two (2) years.
