Townhouse (Luxury Systems)

Tasks set by the client in the project
The customer wanted a ready-made Smart Home where he could control lighting, temperature, humidity, electrical devices. The customer also wanted an security system and a fire alarm system.

Project description:

  • Security and fire alarm systems
  • Video surveillance
  • Water leakage control
  • Gas leakage control
  • Smart sockets
  • Voice notification
  • Intercom
  • Imitation of presence
  • Control of electricity consumption
  • Control of water consumption
  • Automatic switch-off of unused devices
  • Smart dimming
  • Control of presence (motion sensors)
  • Outside lighting (based on motion and lighting sensors)
  • Automated boiler control
  • Mode «exiting»
  • Mode «coming»
  • Climate control
  • Lighting control (different scenarios)
  • Multiroom system
  • Humidity control
  • Automated heating control, smart temperature control based on the time of day and owners’ activity.

Difficulties you faced while working on the project
Due to considerable errors of traditional temperature and humidity detectors, specialist in Luxury Systems lab developed and produced microprocessor based sensors of high-accuracy, specially for this project. The sensors are based on SHT10 crystal, they send the data on temperature, humidity and on dew-point temperature via Modbus RTU protocol. We also designed a mini weather station to measure temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, dew point temperature, lighting, time of sunrise and time of sunset.
When installing temperature sensors of warm floors (digital sensors with 1-Wire interface), some of the sensors were damaged and some time later went out of order. The programmers were ready for this and created a special software algorithm, that remembers the changes in the climate in each zone within the last 10 days, analyzing all settings and data from sensors (outside temperature, heater temperature, the square of the room, etc.). The algorithm switched the system into the automated mode 10 minutes after the sensors went out of order. This function was used for the first time, and as practice shows, it supports the work of the heating system in the automated mode very well, and it still can set the temperature.

Сontrol panels:
2 two sensor panels, mounted on the walls and 2 mobile devices: a phone and a tablet.
