Highlight on the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) in Berlin: düwi shows a control system of the latest generation
The topic Home Control is on the advance in Europe: There is a growing trend for modernising existing electric installations and implementing individual solutions. Adaptation to modern demands for comfort and new technical standards which allow a flexible use of rooms and save energy play a major role in the process. In the 12 months to come the sector is predicted to achieve a rapid growth of more than a 100 %. The reasons for this development are a high increase of home networks which allow a cross-linking of the individual components as well as the chance of saving energy by the application of home control solutions.
düwi offers an effort and cost saving solution based on the worldwide wellestablished Z-Wave standard. This solution integrates an existing technology in a reliable state-of-the-art control system. Hence a radio controlled network is created which can be extended at the consumer's discretion. There is no need for installing new current lines or opening walls. Lights, heating, blinds or multimedia devices may be controlled conveniently by iPhone, PDA, computer, notebook or remote control.
