Surround sound systems
To integrate a home automation system with useful and fun accessories, Bticino has also invented Nuvo, the elegant and sophisticated wireless surround sound system, that can be connected to a portable device or to a computer, to stream music throughout the house. It can be controlled by an application, that needs to be installed on your smartphone or tablet and then connected to the home automation system. Just with a few touches, you can play music, choose the song you wish to play, adjust the volume and even choose which room you want the music to be played, and you can even exclude some rooms. Obviously, Nuvo must be combined with a surround sound system, such as the one proposed by Bticino. AccentPLUS® 1 is a system of speakers, that with a clean and undistorted sound, allows the music to be played smoothly throughout the house. AccentPLUS® 1 can also be connected to the video system of the house, to provide the best listening experience of a surround sound movie theatre, all managed by the Nuvo switchboard.
Regarding temperature management, Bticino has designed a zone control system, that allows you to set the right temperature in every room of the house, simply by presetting it from the control panel or, alternatively, from your smartphone. This, a part from allowing you to program the turning on and off, allows you to preset the temperature level, even on a daily basis, by setting different values for every day of the week depending on specific requirements. For example, with a home automation system, you can adjust the ideal temperature of the bathroom, depending on the time you set your alarm. Besides the comfort that a home automation system can provide, the Bticino program allows you to save on your energy consumptions, reducing dispersions by setting exactly, the level of temperature you wish to be reached.
Security is also important for Bticino, especially everything that regards safety. The antitheft alarm connected to the home automation system, relies on the presence in the home of several small cameras that control specific chosen areas. The images are then sent to the associated smartphone, where you will be able to see them. The main objective of Bticino developers is to allow you to have your house constantly under control. Their target is to provide the customer with the maximum comfort.
