Most used functions for your IHS system

Design guide, offering you the most used and requested functions for an IHS

Friday 20 June, 2014 - Integrated Home Systems (IHS) are increasingly being installed and are slowly becoming the standard electrical installation for homes. Along with the comfort, safety, communication, and energy management benefits, such systems also offer increased flexibility and a wide choice in functions. Unfortunately, the latter advantages are not always known to the owner. This is comparable to someone walking around with a smartphone, but only using it to make telephone calls.


The Design Guide

We have developed a design guide, offering you the most used and requested functions for an IHS. This will enable you to prepare yourself for your meeting with the architect and installer. Using the guide, you can determine which functions matter most to you and that need to be active from the very beginning of the new installation. You can also choose not to install certain functions at present, but make the necessary arrangements to activate them later if you should need them. A number of functions will not apply to you, because they do not fit your lifestyle. Every function is in easy to understand, non-technical language, making them comprehensible and recognizable, even if you are not an expert.

Guiding your installer

To make your own choices instead of letting others determine what your electrical installation should be capable of, simply mark each desired function in the design guide. That way, you will get the installation that you want and not the one someone else has in mind. The installer can use your function list as a guide to accomplish an electrical installation tuned to your specific needs. The result is that you get the functions you want and not those that you do not need.

For your architect and installer as well

Integrated Home System, domotics, and automation are container words. As long as they are not concrete for a specific client and home, chances are that the various parties concerned (client, architect, and installer) will misunderstand each other and not know what the other really wants or needs. When going through the design guide, the architect and installer will be confronted with concrete functions and possibilities. This knowledge can then be used during meetings with the customer.
