The current trends in building technology

In view of dwindling oil supplies, the automotive industry is working hard to develop alternatives to conventional fuel-powered vehicles - current trends and technologies include electromobility, ethanol, hybrid drives and nitrogen. One thing is for sure: the conventional combustion engine is becoming a thing of the past. A very similar trend can be observed in building technology - boxes simply connected to power, water, fuel oil or gas supplies are becoming just as obsolete. Intelligent electronics is taking over in buildings, the "smarthome" will become mainstream. Even today, numerous electronic helpers are at work: In case of danger, they trigger alarms, they control heating systems, air conditioning systems and lights, they open windows and garage doors. Almost everything can be controlled remotely via smartphone or tablet PC: This exciting development and technical challenge will definitely bring about many more fascinating innovations.


AFRISOLab allows easy visualisation, control and optimisation of heating system management and building safety and security, sensors and actuators of all types in building technology and automation.
The current trends in building technology make life safer, simpler and more convenient. High-level building automation systems are often cost-intensive, feature-rich complete solutions that are not always easily comprehensible and can only be installed by highly specialised companies. With AFRISOLab, AFRISO now offers an intelligent, simple solution for the tank, heating system and water technology product range. AFRISOLab is an excellent vantage point into the world of building automation and security and safety technology: It allows for an easy start and can be modularly extended depending on individual requirements.

AFRISO uses the wireless transmission technology of the EnOcean Alliance. This wireless technology excels with an impressive signal range and very low energy consumption. It uses so-called energy harvesting technology which taps energy sources from the environment, such as movements, light or temperature differences so that the sensors do not need a power supply. This technology offers an ideal foundation for high quality, functionality and flexibility on the way towards smarthome solutions. The ultimate EnOcean system networks all alarm systems, heating systems, air conditioning systems, lighting systems, shutters, doors, windows and garage doors with the central AFRISOLab Assist building controller - and it is completely wireless. The building controller acquires, stores and processes all sensor data and consumption data. AFRISOLab Assist then transmits the required messages, measured values, events, etc. to smartphones or tablet PCs via Internet or GSM and allows the user to respond appropriately.

AFRISO already offers sensors and actuators for water, temperature and air (CO2 and humidity) as well as a range of WATCHDOG alarm units (Minimelder low level alarm, Maximelder high level alarm, TankControl, water alarm unit ÷WU) with EnOcean wireless technology.
