Under this motto, the members, with the responsible companies Diehl and Glen Dimplex, will present a novel open platform for the intelligent home. We cordially invite you to experience this system at our stand B5.420 in Hall B5. What is special: In contrast to many propriety Smart Home Solutions, the Smart Eco System networks all components of a building together. This way, the user controls not only single functions such as light and blinds. In fact, modern technology connects energy consumer, energy provider and energy storage in one intelligent system. Through this comprehensive approach, a Photovoltaic System with heat pump, for example, can be adjusted to the optimal energy needs. At the same time, battery or thermal storage systems (e.g. Storage Heating, Warm Water Heat Pumps) can be integrated into the concept. The user can then efficiently control energy consumption and use excess electricity from stored renewable energy. The Smart Home paves the way for the Energy Policy....Read more
