With MYHOME, INNOVUS is introducing a GUI (graphical user interface) based dwelling control system that can easily configure any of the Z-Wave devices and control of processes via PC or laptop computer. After connecting the HOUSE CONTROL BOX to a WLAN (wireless local area network - which is just the linking of one or two computers without using wires) or LAN (local area network) router different Z-Wave devices can be configured or commands defined. Thus, the user is provided with a comfortable and intuitive home management system, supporting different settings such as light, heating, air conditioning, multimedia, energy saving, and security devices. An integrated calendar function also provides for easy adjustment of settings. And in combination with the battery operated radiator thermostats from Danfoss, a significant reduction of heating costs can be achieved.
The INNOVUS RAone Smart Dimmer, which includes a finger touch panel supporting many different light scenarios, can be used for numerous applications. For example time-controlled, incremental reduction of light intensity in a child’s bedroom or in hallways The Smart Dimmer can be operated from different remotes such as Bang & Olufsen, Logitech 895, or INNOVUS’ SmoothRemote. It features an integrated power meter that measures the energy consumption of the lamps thereby helping to reduce energy bills.
The INNOVUS Smart Switch multi-functional controller offers a compact mini distribution center for the home. This switch can also be configured via MYHOME and provides for the operation of up to 16 functions or processes.
All configurations can be simply set, changed or added to via MYHOME. This wireless, battery operated multi-functional controller can be located anywhere in the house and can be fixed via and adhesive backing on to brickwork, wood and even glass surfaces.
INNOVUS RAone SmartPower also enables further reduction of energy consumption. This model is an on/off switch, designed to reduce consumption in devices consuming energy in standby mode and features a finger touch panel for local control. Like the RAone SmartDimmer it is also equipped with an internal power meter, enabling measurement of energy consumption of those devices connected to the switch.
In order to further increase home security and comfort, INNOVUS has developed a Z-Wave based advanced battery operated movement sensor. By integrating the movement sensor into the Z-Wave system and thereby exchanging information directly with the home control system, this PIR sensor can not only be used in security related applications, but also help to decrease energy usage and increase comfort and convenience in the home.
The Z-Wave product portfolio of the company is completed with the INNOVUS SmoothRemote which enables easy operation - from the sofa - of all features of all INNOVUS devices as well as other Z-Wave devices offered by third-party vendors. Potential applications are unlimited. For example, lights in the entire house can be switched on or off from the living room when watching TV; unnecessary standby usage of devices eliminated by switching them off, or room temperature can be lowered or increased based on the room`s occupation. All processes are easily and comfortably controlled via the INNOVUS House Control System.
All INNOVUS devices are compatible with products of other companies within the Z-Wave Alliance including Merten, Danfoss, Logitech, or ACT who use the Z-Wave standard within their solutions. Currently more than 170 Z-Wave based products are already available on the international market. INNOVUS is deeply involved in energy saving initiatives of the Danish Energy Saving Trust (DEST – Elsparefonden) and other prestigious international programs.
