— Drives and motorizations

The actuation or motorization of a function useful for the containment of consumption, which in itself introduces an additional consumption, easily leads to a positive balance since the corresponding human action statistically is not put into practice with the same timeliness and effectiveness for various reasons including not least in importance the laziness and lack of sensitivity of our senses.

The main automation functions that can lead to a reduction in consumption by introducing drives and motors in contexts sometimes residential sometimes different are: • Roller shutters and window shutters can be automated. Opening and closing can be controlled by rocker buttons, associated with scenarios, timed to reduce energy wastage, operated by remote controls or controlled by twilight sensors or weather stations that detect wind speed and the presence of rain. Similarly, sun blinds can be operated. • Venetian blinds: Up/down movement and angular adjustment of the slats. • Electric gates and doors currently operated by proprietary systems can be integrated into KNX systems. • Integration of electric locks for driveway doors. • Irrigation systems: scheduling of the start and end of the opening of water valves on an hourly basis or depending on solar radiation to avoid damaging plants and on the absence of rainfall to avoid unnecessary waste of water.

• Integration with swimming pool management systems. • Control of shading devices (rolling shutters, blinds, etc.) in manual or automatic mode. Operations such as raising, lowering, opening, closing or tilting of slats can be carried out automatically depending on the position of the sun to avoid direct solar radiation with less need for summer air conditioning (energy saving) and protection against glare (greater visual comfort at the video workstations). • Integration of command and control into scenarios for meeting rooms, multifunctional rooms, showrooms, etc. • Weather alarms (rain, wind, frost) can bring shading devices into a safe position and, if necessary, block their operation.
