The focus was on energy management, with a goal to having a fully automated, self-sustainable building compound which would only use the energy generated through photovoltaic solar panels and wind turbine.
The project required the integration of a large number of different systems and devices. KNX was to be used for lights, shades, air-conditioning (AC), heating, water leakage sensors, movement sensors, a weather station, wind direction, energy consumption monitoring, and the swimming pool engine room.
Other functions to be included were an alarm system from DSC, an electric car charging station, IP cameras, a photovoltaic system with devices from SMA, an IP intercom, an audio system from Olive, Sony TVs and an elevator. Control was to be via a tailor-made graphical user interface, with apartment complex pictures as backgrounds.
ComfortClick decided to use its rack controller - Sledgehammer, which is powerful enough to handle a project this size and can integrate all the above mentioned systems. One of the project specifications was also to provide a tailor made graphical user interface with apartment complex pictures as backgrounds.
