The manual buttons can be easily combined with voice commands, smartphones and the specially developed Ekinex control application – Delégo. Time and presence commands allow you to control processes at home no matter where you are – at home or away from home.

Automation and management systems for residential buildings allow the regulation of climate and air quality. The ease of their use is considered an essential part of quality of life, and the advantages in terms of energy consumption are considerable.

The various components for residential management systems are designed with adequate dimensions, supplemented with symbols and signal LED lamps powered by very low voltage, which makes them safer. The materials from which they are made are of high quality and pleasant to the touch.

Different controllers allow control through applications on your smartphone or through voice commands, capabilities that greatly simplify everyday life.

Technology and comfort in the home are no longer just an option, but a profitable element in the real estate market. The installation of a home automation system raises the price of the property compared to residential buildings equipped only with traditional installation systems.

An analysis conducted by specialized portals found that at least a quarter of the requests for offers received concern home automation devices, and 24% of new owners who renovate a house after purchase include at least one home automation element. From the real cases examined in the new construction sector, it is clear that home automation is already included in both high-end and lower-budget projects.

We spend most of our time in confined spaces. Dynamic light management can make a significant contribution to the well-being of building occupants. Today, lighting can be adjusted in terms of light intensity and color, as well as changing dynamically in different stages of the day cold white light to wake up, intense white light to promote concentration in the active part of the day, and soft white light in the late afternoon to prepare for the evening. This regulation is possible thanks to LED lights and a variety of lighting fixtures that allow the emission of intense or diffuse light, controlled by a home automation system.

Dynamic light control makes it possible to reproduce natural conditions in the home, offering ecological living conditions closer to their biological needs.

Problems with poor air quality can arise even in confined environments caused by pollutants inside and by the increase in CO2 concentration due to human presence.

This aspect should not be underestimated, as in Europe on average more than 90% of their time people spend indoors. If exposure to pollutants over time becomes very prolonged, the problem is no longer only the well-being of the environment, but can also seriously affect people’s health. Therefore, ensuring high air quality in the home is a necessity. This process can be supported by ventilation control using the home automation system, allowing both high air quality and energy efficiency to be achieved.

Fenix NTM® is an innovative nanotechnology material developed and used in all areas of interior (kitchens, furniture, retail outlets, restaurants, sanitary facilities, etc.). The material consists of paper (more than 60%) and thermo-hardening resins (about 30-40%) and is produced by a special process in which heat and pressure are applied simultaneously to obtain a homogeneous and non-porous material. The inner layer is composed of paper impregnated with heat-curing resins, while the outer surface requires the use of nanotechnology and is composed of new generation acrylic resins hardened and fixed with the process – electron beam curing. In low light reflection, its surface is extremely opaque, anti-fingerprint and has a pleasant softness to the touch. Fenix NTM® is highly resistant to abrasion, abrasions and dry heat. Significantly reduces bacterial load, making the surface hygienic and easy to clean, resistant to mold, percussion and acid solvents and household reagents.

The innovative material is a finishing touch to Ekinex® wall controllers and products. It improves the design of accessories and they do not go unnoticed and unappreciated by architects, interior designers and end customers.
