Most Popular Home Automation Systems in Europe

Don’t know where to start when looking to automate your home? Here are 5 popular home automation systems widely used in Europe.

But first, what exactly is home automation? It is used to control basic and advanced functions of your household from one or more devices. If your home is automated then you can proudly call it ‘Smart House’. Household functions can also be controlled via smart phones/tablets which gives you the possibility to monitor and control your house where ever you are. You can also have notifications sent to you if anything out the ordinary happens such as smoke or security alarms going off.

Home of Technologies Ambient Assisted Living solution

What is Ambient Assisted Living?

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is one of the major emerging technology markets of the moment, offering the potential to enable and empower citizens in their daily lives using state-of-the-art technologies. Known as ‘assistive technologies’ in some areas, AAL facilitates everyday activities for people who require care and support, augmenting their quality of life and assisting their independence.


Home of Technologies Ambient Assisted Living solution

Home of Technologies has developed a solution for a customer with disabilities and her carer/relative. Person living at home can control their lights, heating and blinds with one remote from everywhere in the house. The said remote also has an emergency button in case a day comes when urgent help is needed. When the button is pressed it automaticly sends a message to predefined numbers or devices notifying that attention is required. In addition to the emergency button there are also motion sensors installed in the house and the carer/relative can monitor if their cared one is active and healthy. Necessary action can be taken if no activity is detected in the house for prolonged periods of time. It can be a lifesaving solution for the people you care about.

Home Automation Low in the UK But Set to Grow Extensively

Home and Building Automation Company Home of Technologies is Poised for Growth in the UK Market

London, United Kingdom, 29/07/2015: The home automation sector in the United Kingdom is set to grow in spite of the fact that it is seen as one in its infancy stage at the moment when compared to the rest of the developed European countries like Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands or the United States.

Home automation is popular in small households as well as large corporate buildings in many European countries. But the United Kingdom has been quite slow in adopting the new automation technologies and standards. However, there are quite a number of companies, such as the Home of Technologies, that are emerging and moving home automation in the UK to a whole new level. These companies are making use of the UK’s growth potential in this industry and developing technologies that are readily available to end-users. They are also entering into contracts with distributors from Europe in a bid to provide services that literally stand out.

The government is, on the other hand, recognizing the many benefits of home automation and, as a result, it is requiring energy companies to set up 53 million gas and electricity meters in 30 million domestic and smaller non-domestic properties.

According to the Department of Energy & Climate Change, many households will have smart meters installed between 2015 and 2020. But the households and companies that have their buildings already automated are already ahead of this and are enjoying the lots of benefits that come with home automation. On the same note, Francis Kolms, marketing director at Home of Technologies, said: “Apart from the convenience of controlling and monitoring all lighting, heating and security from one device, home automation also brings huge savings in energy, hence reducing the costs significantly over medium to long term.”

Home of Technologies, a company that majorly deals with KNX home automation product distribution, supporting and providing solutions for installers, developers, architects and stakeholders in this industry, is set to exhibit in four forthcoming trade shows including 100% Design in Olympia, London, UK Construction Week and Homebuild and Renovating shows.
