Nowadays, anyone can “smart home”, because better equipped electronics markets offer corresponding do-it-yourself solutions. They promise simple and quick implementation and a high level of comfort. But CUBOS doesn’t just offer lighting control via smartphone. We are architects of the networked home. With us, everything comes from a single source - from planning to installation and commissioning. We create your thinking home.
CUBOS networks all three important components: a central control with sensors and actuators. A sensor measures the brightness in the room. If it is too dark, the light is switched on by the actuator. The result is daylight-dependent control of the light for a constant lighting level.
We advise and plan individually so that your property becomes distinctive and unique. Follow our ideas in building system technology and lighting design room by room until your personal, coherent overall concept is complete.
In the end, your home will be innovative and comfortable, but it doesn’t stop there. With the right settings, you can also save energy.
WHAT ADVANTAGES DOES CUBOS OFFER?
You are afraid that your house is not safe? No problem. You keep an eye on everything via CUBOS Smart Home and simulate your presence, for example.
Life is busy and free time is precious. With our help, enable your CUBOS Smart Home to think for itself and let CUBOS recognise situations independently and act according to your wishes. Only then can you call your home “smart”.
With CUBOS you can reduce your energy consumption, because you only use the energy you really need. Radiator thermostats in connection with window contacts or switchable sockets are only a first approach to what is possible.
There is often a fine line between helpful functions and little gimmicks. No matter which functions you discover for yourself, they equip your home for the future, integrate the “Internet of Things” (IoT) and increase the value of your property.
CUBOS Smart Home as a solution for accessibility. KfW promotes conversion measures in the area of smart home solutions as part of its “Age-Appropriate Conversion” programme. Age-appropriate assistance systems, such as operating and drive systems for doors and roller shutters or measures to improve orientation are part of this.
CUBOS PROVIDES SECURITY!
Burglary protection, alarm systems and protection systems for private and commercial buildings make it possible to secure and monitor your home and your privacy. More than a third of all burglary attempts are thwarted by protective measures, and thus aborted. With CUBOS Smart Home you can spend your time outside your four walls carefree.
Motion and presence detectors, glass breakage detectors, window contacts, presence simulation - these are just a few examples that you can integrate into your CUBOS Smart Home.
The burglary rate is particularly high during the holiday season and on public holidays. It can be helpful if, for example, intelligent exterior and interior lighting suggests to potential burglars that you are at home.
If you are interested in finding out what makes sense for your protection and that of your home, CUBOS will be happy to help you. Together with you, we analyse your need for the presence of people and neighbours, the type of construction, the location and accessibility as well as the manageability of the site and building.
HOW DO I MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION?
But how do you decide now? Having seemingly countless options available makes it difficult to find the right solution for your unique requirements. It is therefore particularly helpful to know that you have the right partner at your side.
CUBOS is available to offer you advice at every stage, from the planning through to implementation and installation. We inform you about risks, advantages and disadvantages and explain the various solutions, making sure that you have the information you require to make an informed decision.
CUBOS offers you options for every budget and every living and working environment. We would like to suggest that you make an appointment with us to discuss CUBOS Smart Home together.
Let your CUBOS Smart Home become a valuable member of your family by supporting you in your everyday life.
FAQ: Setup and installation
Depending on the requirements of your CUBOS Smart Home, the prerequisites also vary.
For example, if you would like to integrate voice control, an internet connection is necessary. Regardless of whether it’s a flat, an existing property, a new building, private or commercial.
As your life evolves, so can your CUBOS Smart Home. Continuous adaptability and retrofitting of functions are no problem.
CUBOS offers you a complete package. From informative discussions and individual planning to installation and commissioning.
Yes, several people can operate your CUBOS Smart Home. A corresponding profile can be created for each user.
Installation via cable offers you a solution for almost all automation tasks. You are manufacturer-independent when it comes to product selection. The flexibility is limitless, as even more automation systems can be integrated.
Using a wireless solution is quick and uncomplicated. With this solution, a CUBOS Smart Home can also be created where there is no possibility of laying cables. Wireless solutions are particularly suitable if you only want to implement a few functions.
It all depends on what you need. If you are hardly ever at home, control via your smartphone is the best option. If you spend more time indoors, you could consider a central control panel or voice control. You can find out more during a conversation with our experts at CUBOS.
The magic concept is “energy management”. Find out from us how you can produce and use energy yourself with your CUBOS Smart Home, e.g. with a photovoltaic system and an energy storage unit.
The effort required to install your CUBOS Smart Home depends greatly on the range of functions. The installation of a few wireless components is possible in less time than the networking of a complete house.
Between 30 and 100 metres. We use a frequency of 868 MHz. It is particularly suitable for residential buildings.
You can automate your CUBOS Smart Home in various ways. With simple rules you can save energy, e.g. by closing the radiator thermostats when the windows are open. Logics are much more complex. For example, a logic checks the position of the sun within the shading parameters and adjusts the position of the roller shutters if necessary.
Scenes summarise routine procedures or logical sequences and enable a simple start at the touch of a button. If you have planned a cinema evening with the family, the switching on of the projector and the lowering of the screen and the shutters can be combined. At the same time, the light dims to a brightness of 5%, for example.
FAQ: Security and Data Protection
In the event of a power failure, CUBOS Smart Home is without function unless you have an energy storage unit to fall back on in such moments.
In the event of an internet connection failure, the CUBOS Smart Home can no longer be accessed remotely. Inside the house, however, most functions can still be used. Rules, logics and scenes are also among the functions that work without the internet. Internet services, such as voice control via Alexa, are the exception. They cannot be controlled without the internet.
