A Flexible Dream House
Product: Niko Home Control
Sleek, understated and practical: that’s how Sofie (30) and Steven (35) envision their dream home. Currently they are working on achieving that dream step by step. And because of Niko Home Control their electrical installation develops along with the rest of their home.
Sofie and Steven know what they want. Even before having found the land to build on, they already knew what their house should look like. “We purposefully opted for a new build”, says Sofie. “We want the complete freedom to choose the layout of our home ourselves.” The couple found a spot in Mol, just 1.5 kilometres from where Sofie’s parents live. “We immediately fell in love with the 850 sq. m. garden and 800 sq. m. of pasture that came with it”, Steven beams.
The couple used Niko Home Control:
- Motion detectors in the hallway
- iPad controlled sun blinds
- All-off button in the bedroom
- Pre-set atmosphere in the lounge area
- Adaptable functionality of the switches
Simple Installation = Wealth of Possibilities
Product: Niko Home Control
Frank (48) and his wife Gina (47) bought their home in 2014 as a water-tight and wind-tight shell. Two and a half years later, the project was completely finished and the couple moved in together with daughter Megan (14). As a furniture maker, Frank did a large part of the custom work himself, but the couple hired external professionals for the sanitary and electrical facilities.
“It was our installer Danny Alleman who convinced us of the merits of Niko Home Control,” Frank says. “We haven’t regretted it for a single moment. The simple installation offers you a whole host of possibilities. Via a single touch screen on the wall, we can operate everything: lighting, ventilation, sun blinds, our electrically operated windows and access control to the front door. In addition, you can also operate everything with your smartphone and your tablet using a handy app.”
Frank and Gina’s favourite applications
- Operating the sun blinds via smartphone and/or tablet
- Access control with external video unit
- Operation of electric windows
- Automatic lighting and ventilation via motion detector
- USB socket outlet
