UNION CELEBRATES THE YEAR OF THE SMART HOME
by Toby Davis
2017 belongs to Smart Technology…
Here at Union we are in the middle of our busiest year ever. 2017 has turned out to be the year that interest in intelligent home automation and control has exploded.
We started the year off on a high note with the release of our new website aimed at both our commercial and residential clients. The new site now brings our online presence inline with our privileged position as one of the leading smart technology companies in the UK.
Success at the KNX Awards…
In March, there was more cause for celebration as we picked up the ‘Highly Commended’ award in the ‘KNX residential installation of the year’ category of the KNX awards, held at Hanbury hall in London. (KNX is the worlds leading standard in home automation and building system technology).
We received the award due to the ‘exemplary design and integration of the KNX system’ which we installed at the Lexicon Tower – a 36 storey luxury apartment block in London, Islington consisting of 145 apartments and one four story penthouse.
The project consisted of intelligent automation and control of the apartment’s lighting, HVAC, audio visual and shading.
Our technical director, Lee Nunn, commented on the award by saying “We are delighted that our hard work and attention to detail has been recognised in this way”
The launch of TruSmart…
Keeping the momentum going, in May we then launched our TruSmart brand, an umbrella brand for the smart technology that we integrate into multi-dwelling units and commercial properties.
Since the start of this year we have noticed a huge rise in interest from Property Developers, Architects, Building Contractors, M&E Contractors and many other building and construction professionals. All of whom are keen to learn more about the benefits of including intelligent control and automation into the buildings they are working with.
We beleive this recent surge of interest in building automation and control is the start of a paradigm shift in the role technology is going to play in the construction industry. Over the last 18 months, this same movement has taken hold of the home owner market and resulted in a complete change in how consumers view smart home technology and it’s use in enhancing our lives.
Smart Technology and automation are revolutionising the way we interact with the spaces we live, work and socialise in. Our TruSmart technology provides property developers and building owners with a cost-effective solution to make their properties more intelligent, more efficient and more desirable.
“Our biggest news so far this year is the launch of the brand new Wondrwall intelligent home automation system”
Wondrwall is a revolutionary new intelligent control and automation system for the home-owner market that is set to change perceptions about what is possible with affordable home technology.
Imagine a home that learns and adapts to you and your daily routines. A home that understands where you spend your time and subtly makes adjustments to your lighting and heating to create the perfect living environment. All of this is fully automated, meaning you do not have to lift a finger.
Light, motion, audio, heat and humidity sensors are all built into the intelligent light switches which simply replace your existing units in each room of your home. The information received from these sensors is used to make adjustments to your home’s settings in real time.
“Specifically designed for retro-fitting into existing homes, our intelligent system learns from your day to day living patterns”
The wondrwall system represents a profound shift away from the era of multi-app smart home confusion. Not so much a step in the right direction as giant leap into the future. A future where technology is rapidly changing the way we live and the relationship we have with the everyday objects around us.
This is the solution that the market has been waiting for. A home that understands how you behave and uses that knowledge to anticipate your needs without needing your input.
An extremely affordable intelligent home solution that thinks for itself.
HOME TECHNOLOGY REIMAGINED
Wondrwall integrates Alexa voice control technology into each room of your house enabling you to control your heating, operate your lighting, play music, check your calendar/news/weather, order a pizza, call an Uber, even open your garage door…all you need to do is ask.
