Result

iZba’s team installed and set up a smart home eco-system using latest smart home technology based on Zigbee, WiFi, MQTT and ZWave protocols. Various functions can now be accessed by residents using physical touch (e.g. smart light switches), via their personal phones, tablets, smart watches and through a dashboard wall panel installed in the dining area. All functions are controlled locally, with no risk of non-authorized access. Also, home eco-system can be accessed remotely via a secure connection.

Residents can proactively monitor their home by logging into the app and also receive various alerts to their personal devices in connection with various functions and triggers.

Smart heating – individual room temperature control integrated with the ability to control heating individually in each room and on schedule. Remote control set up.

Smart lighting – energy efficient smart LED light bulbs installed in master bedroom together with a smart light switch and dimmer which allows control for the lighting in the whole house (e.g. turn all lights off), scene control and schedules. Other bedrooms and spaces benefit from smart light switches, some of which are mains powered and some are additional battery operated switches for added convenience. Garage lights (inside and outside) are triggered by external factors, e.g. door open/closed, time of the day and motion.

Smart security – iZba smart system monitors for water leaks, smoke, CO, doors, windows and motion inside and outside of the house. It sends alerts of all the cases of entry into the house and garage, or triggers the alarm including from panic button. Smart cameras installed indoors and outside, alerting and recording should any human motion has been detected.
