Home automation is a simple system for Smart Living Security, Fire Prevention, Energy Management, Safety Protection and Health Care at an affordable price for everyone.
” Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. That is what a smart home automation should be – a simple yet complete platform that allows you to take full control of your home.
Way ahead of the competition, a home automation system allows you to control your smart home from anywhere, automate all devices, see what’s going on when you are away and get instant alerts in case of fire, security or safety issues.
The heart of the system is the controller which has the capability to communicate through a variety of standards including Z-WAVE, ZIGBEE, KNX, ONVIF, and UPnP, DLNA. Additionally, the home automation controller capabilities can easily be expanded through easy “snap-in” extension modules that add support for new interfaces and functionalities, communication standards and protocols. Once configured, the controller works stand-alone, but also features cloud support for advanced monitoring, messaging and programming services. The intuitive graphical user interface allows customers to program their own home rules without any previous programming experience.
This is the new generation of smart home security and protection. Arm and disarm your home remotely and get status info with your smartphone from anywhere. Get alerts 24/7 from monitored sensors such as motion detectors, CO2, flood, fire, gas or smoke detection, window or door intrusion and remotely view your CCTV camera coverage.
Extend the system to include keyless entry with smart cards or tags get alerted when people enter or leave your home. The Zipato central station monitors your system 24/7 and immediately alerts police or security once an alarm is activated…even if the Zipabox in your house is compromised !!
With Home Automation, Zipato can send e-mails or text messages as well as video clips whenever important activity occurs such as a child arriving at home, a housekeeper leaving your home, accessing medicine cabinets, plus more… the options are limitless!!
Zipato helps you remotely control and automate lighting, air conditioning, blinds, home appliances, curtains, irrigation, home entertainment….just about everything in your home.
You can set rules to automate your home to improve comfort, usability and even save energy. All this can be done through an easy to use colour touch panel, Internet or your mobile phone wherever you are.
Zipato Rule Creator is very intuitive and easy to use online tool that allows you to create any automation scenario in your home. It is revolutionary in a sense that it allows users to easily create conditional scenarios by dragging puzzles over the screen. Gentle learning curve, no programming experience required.
Zipato handles “Scenes” – program several commands to one button so that you can create the exact mood or environment behind just one button press. For example, a “Welcome Home” scene can create an exact environment with evening lighting, floor heating, music and blinds all adjusted to your desired settings. Tie that scene to the “Alarm Disarming” event and just for the hours 5.00-9.00pm and you don’t even need to press a button when you come home.
With Home Automation, you can monitor where your electrical energy is being used and be able to stop wasting it. This is all done through intelligent control technology which enables you to monitor and reduce your energy consumption of smart home electronics and save money without compromising on comfort.
Cooling, heating, lighting control and much more can be controlled to eliminate excessive energy consumption whilst energy wasters can be identified to eliminate excessive energy consumption. Equipment’s consumption performance can also be tracked and alerts set to trigger on critical parameters.
Rules are used to, say, activate shading by blinds in rooms with excessive sunlight in summer when the air cons are on or sunshade rooms in winter when the sun can aid in heating a room. Zipato works as a holistic home thermostat by controlling all devices that can aid in preserving cold or heat in your home.
Never lose connection with your elders. The Home automation provides additional security to people who are at risk of injuries and accidents that happen at home, especially those in elderly care. It also grants family and friends a greater sense of freedom; knowing that they will be contacted immediately if an incident occurs, making life easier for both caregivers and their loved elders.
By using different sensors and mobile technology, the Home Automation system can monitor all the activities of loved ones and provide the information and alerts to a whole group of caregivers. This way families share the caretaking responsibilities between siblings, children, trusted friends, paid professionals, neighbours and other caregivers included in the caregiver network. It is much more cost-effective and dignified solution than assisted living facilities.
Depending on sensor location, family members and other authorised caregivers can receive alerts when normal behaviour patterns change, if there is no activity within a specified time, in a case of fall, or if your loved one simply pushes a special button for help.
