Features that distinguish the ONYX House include occupancy and time based lighting and energy sensitive heating, combined with time and light level based shading. These can all be managed from a mobile phone or tablet.
The switches are finished using the GIRA Esprit range of cover frames; their legends are supplied based on the standard configuration but may be customised or engraved on request. A comprehensive range of matching GIRA wall sockets can also be supplied on request.
The ONYX House options include:
- AccessControl – integration with an audio/video door entry system to display who is at the door and control access
- BuildingManagement – remote building control and monitoring based on user defined criteria to manage the home and its energy consumption.
- EstateManagement – irrigation management using weather and soil sensing to control irrigation pumps, potentially combined with rain water harvesting.
