How has this project resolved an identified need for the building user?
Our client approached Baulogic wanting a smart home for themselves, and to create a home environment that’s comfortable and safe for their disabled son and give him a level of independence that was impossible previously.
Our client required a system that could cater to his specific needs now and be able to adapt to his changing needs in future.
For his needs now, the lighting is programmed in the Baulogic system to avoid any sensory issues, for example pressing the ‘welcome’ button before they arrive home turns lights on to a level of brightness that avoids sensory overload for their son.
The Baulogic system also enables the family to ensure their son is safe by restricting electricity in his room, using switches that can be controlled via the app, and closely managing the temperature of the towel rail in his wet room, meaning he can shower safely and independently.
Rarely in a build project brief, is it so important to manage lighting and heating levels so carefully.
The use of KNX was essential in providing the breadth of functionality and ensuring the range of manufacturers products could meet the project’s needs.
The family wanted a modern highly functional home, whilst still providing for their accessibility and security needs, hiding complexity and offering convenience whether through remote control, whole home functions or schedules.
During the construction of the property, the project was faced with delays and supply chain challenges due to the global pandemic. Baulogic’s unique ability to be installed by the clients’ electrician and KNX’s simple cabling requirement allowed this project to progress according to the on-site timetable and the electrician’s availability. This complex system was successfully installed in a matter of days.
Baulogic ensured everything was clear, detailed in advance, on time and on budget. No specialist was required on site but Baulogic supported throughout. This was all possible because of the power of KNX integrating so many functions so seamlessly.
