Lighting Management: a triumph of led lighting. High brightness spotlights and hundreds of meters of high-quality LED strips. Cherry on top, two sources for optical fiber with RGB LED. Special is the pool lighting with color changing LED. Everything managed through Basalte SENTIDO keypads, here in their most classic version: satin white.

Automation Management: shutters, blinds and window frames engines are all managed through the home automation system.

Air Conditioning Management: The home automation system controls all zones independently of one another, ensuring to each its own comfort. The big living-kitchen area uses sensors placed at different points and performs an average of the detected temperature. Humidity probes provide for the automatic management of the fan coil, both for cooling and to avoid condensation. A forced ventilation system is automatically managed by the touch screen.

Security: Integration with Tecnoalarm system is simple, and allows connection and disconnection of each area, and the display of alarm states directly from the home automation system or within the corresponding scenarios. Diffusion in the garden is entrusted to two Garvan SA210, Design omnidirectional speakers.

Multiroom Audio: SONOS multiroom system, 7 independent zones, made with amplified player. The speakers are all invisible, Built-in the wooden panelling. The integration between audio and home automation is realized by the supervision and control server.

Home Cinema: As for the Home Cinema, there is the trick, but you can't see it. The sheet is hidden near the fireplace. The projector, a magnificent Crystal Cube SIM2, is installed in a cabinet with automatic opening, controlled by the home automation system. The front speakers are all invisible, built in the front wooden panelling, as well as the surround. The subwoofer, a generous 240W of Garvan with dedicated Band & Olufsen ICE power amplifier, is also completely invisible. The engine is the latest generation amplifier, a YAMAHA RX-A1060, of adequate power to the system.

TV: The TVs in the dining and living area are built in the wooden panelling. In order to ensure the best audio quality, they are connected to a dedicated amplifier. The speaker is a single in stereo mode, invisible type. In the bedrooms we installed two Loewe Connect with floor base.

Multiroom Audio Video: The audio-video system is based on an HDMI KRAMER 6x6 matrix. Everything is managed by the supervision system, so you can share all decoders and other sources on all TVs with no remote control. The devices are all centralized, therefore no decoder or other accessories in sight, no cable hank near the televisions.

Supervision and control: The management of the entire system is on iPad as is now tradition, with a new graphical interface developed by ClicHome to further enhance ease of use. Same goes for the iPhone. Televisions and audio-video system are managed comfortably from tablet, but for support were also provided dedicated remote controls linked to the supervision system. To support and to ensure the right functioning of everything even in the absence of network operation, we installed two wall 10 " touchscreens, one for each floor, connected directly to the bus.

Realization times: 32 adw (actual days of work, including the realization of the electrical system).

Comments: A complete system, designed with great attention to design, as you may notice from the use of Sentido keypads by Basalte, and from the invisible speakers throughout the house. With this system we started a real study on the creation of user interfaces, in order to make home automation use as intuitive as possible. Inspired by the latest developments and theories on user interface (such as Atomic Design) we have undertaken a whole new path, which we believe has already borne fruit. The technology used for the maintenance and online support system is also new. A new solution with which we can give the customer the maximum real-time support on all aspects of system operation. Remarkable teamwork, under the direction of the architect and in consultation with the woodworker, which let us "hide" all our electronics.

To sum up: Continuous improvement, this would be the phrase with which I could summarize this system. Each installed solution, already tested, has been refined, improved. I believe that from here starts a new history of our systems, the pursuit of perfection in every detail. The network, interfaces, control, graphics, everything has undergone a thorough review. A real study to make sure that every system is better than the last one.

Supervision and control: The system is based on a RTI XP6 control unit. The main user interfaces are the 2 supplied iPad of the house, to control both locally and via Internet. The on wall motorized bracket for iPad (iRoom) confirms the intention to use the iPad as a true master device for supervision and control. A 9" touch screen on wall performs as leading supervisor, wired to the system via LAN. The XP6 integrates the different functions: home automation, multiroom audio, audio-video and TV and Home Cinema control. Experimentally, we used the RTI unit as a communication gateway between KONNEX and Sonos sound system, to allow the control of basic audio functions from Basalte keypads. The management of home cinema is supported by a RTI T2x remote used in WiFi communication with the control unit.

Multiroom Audio: The audio system is based on Sonos, made of 4 independent areas. The system is fully integrated into home automation via RTI.

bUILDING auTOMATIONBuilding Automation


Lighting Management: The lighting system, entirely on Konnex bus, is controlled by infinity keypads in black glass, with LED backlighting. Each keypad has internal ambient light sensor to set the brightness of the LED according to the environment. Setting the intensity of the lights, mainly LED, is assigned in part to actuators 0-10V and in part to LED dimming actuators directly on Konnex bus, both of constant current and constant voltage type. In fact, with this system we have proven the ability to handle and dim any type of LED lighting, directly on Konnex bus.

Automation Management: Curtains and blinds are controlled directly by the Konnex actuators. On the home automation system were also wired some of the fixtures. The logic module provides the internal self-blocking between fixture and curtain, avoiding accidental breakage thereof. The weather station installed activates the automatic closing in case of strong wind, as well as managing the switching on of external lights by sunset switch.

Air Conditioning Management: The air conditioning system provides both floor heating and Mitsubishi canalized heating plant. The heating is controlled directly by the Konnex ambient thermostats. All thermostats are aesthetically integrated into the design of keypads, in black glass with led display. The Mitsubishi system is integrated into home automation with a Mitsubishi-KNX interface. In this way the control of all internal machines is brought on the iPad / iPhone and touch screen.

Intrusion detection Integration: The home automation system is integrated into the Intrusion detection system via RS232 serial. This allows not only the management by touch screen, but above all the ability to connect and disconnect scenarios areas.

Multiroom Audio: Includes 8 independent zones, each served by the SONOS system. The loudspeakers in each room are the GARVAN SIC216, while for the bathrooms we used SIC112S, single stereo speaker.

Home Cinema: The Home Cinema salon is of the highest level, but above all, completely invisible. The sheet (250 cm wide) is powered and reenters completely in the plasterboard, as well as the projector, housed in the magnificent PD2 Future Automation. The front speakers, GARVAN SIC316, are hidden behind an acoustic sheet that covers the whole width of the front wall unit. The surround speakers are AMINA AIW3X completely invisible. The Subwoofer is built into the boiserie of the salon. The part of the amplification is assigned to a YAMAHA AVENTAGE 3030, the latest creation of the Japanese group. All strictly integrated and hidden in the front wall. Finally, the projector, a Quantum Avielo And with standard optics, it has immediately kept up with expectations.

Supervision and control: The supervision system is based on the now tested XP6 unit, combined with the IP-KNX interface to control the home automation system. To complete the system, a RTI RK10, strategically located between the living area and sleeping area, and the monitoring via iPad, active both locally and via Internet. To control the Home Cinema system we used the brand new T2x with ZigBee communication, which not only replaces all other remotes, but solves the problem of controlling a number of devices hidden inside the wall unit "custom-made".

Realization Times: about 18 adw (actual days of work).

Comments: A plant of the highest quality, and not only for what concerns the audiovideo and home automation. All the details have been carefully thought out, such as the choice of thermostats integrated into the design of keypads, or of RK10 as main touch, placed in the perfect position. The audio system SONOS resulted perfectly integrated into the home automation system with supervision of RTI, thanks to the new software SONOS-RTI, used here as an experiment (the driver is not yet available). Also interesting is the integration with Mitsubishi, which allows the KNX to convey directly with the concentrator AG150 over the network using XML. A truly efficient solution, which proved to be also extremely fast and reliable. Experimental was also the IP control of Samsung Smart TV hidden behind a glass in the main salon, by a new RTI driver, also this in beta version. Finally, a gem was the very scenic choice of the bio ethanol fireplace directly controlled by Konnex automation and then by the touch and the RTI supervision system.

To sum up: One of the most complete systems realized until now by Clichome, integrated into a magnificent architectural project, in one of the most beautiful and exclusive areas of Naples.

Lighting Management: The lighting provides an extensive use of dimmable LEDs, both inside and outside. Therefore, for the control we opted for a system based on the standard DALI, interfaced with the home automation system through a Schneider gateway. The system is controlled by the SENTIDO Basalte keypads. All areas are provided with presence sensors and lighting flat on wall, used both for light management, and as sensors for intrusion detection system.

Automation Management: The management concerns the outdoor awnings which are managed directly by the automation supervisory system. The weather station installed activates the automatic closing in case of strong wind, as well as managing the switching on of external lights by sunset switch.

Air Conditioning Management: The air conditioning system, both hot and cold, has been realized with a fan coil system. It is controlled using a keypad with OLED infinity display Deseo by Basalte. While the living room area is controlled directly from the touch screen.

Supervision and control: The system can be managed as a whole from a 5" touch screen placed in the bedroom area. In the living area is installed a RTI 10" touch . The supervision system is based on RTI unit, to which the iPads are connected, both locally and via Internet. The RTI system controls the home automation through an RTI KNX Interface on IP, while the audio system through the RTI-Sonos interface.

Intrusion detection Integration: The home automation system is integrated into the Intrusion detection system via RS232 serial. This allows not only the management by touch screen, but above all the ability to connect and disconnect scenarios areas.

Multiroom Audio: The multiroom audio consists of three areas, outdoor living and principal. The system is based on SONOS, integrated in the home automation system through RTI. For indoor areas have been used in wall loudspeakers, while for the garden we installed 4 omnidirectional GARVAN CUBE speakers corten effect. In support of the outdoor area we added two power amplifiers APART CHAMP.

Realization times: about 8 adw (actual days of work)

Comments: Never as this time, all the choices were influenced by the interior design. Furthermore, the decision-making process was mostly reversed. The home automation system was selected based on the keypads design, as well as on the number and type of touch screens. The alarm has been integrated into home automation primarily to allow the use of presence sensors flat on wall instead of the traditional volumetric. The DALI system was necessary in order to adopt and dim the particular type of lamps. Even for the sound diffusion system the choice of invisible speakers came first, and only secondly the type of system. The result is a sober system perfectly integrated in all aspects in the interior design, in which technology fades in an environment where ancient and contemporary blend without losing their own identity

To sum up: Home Automation and Design have always been the key words of all ClicHome systems, but in this case we have went one step further, and instead of speaking of a home automation built into the design of the house, we can speak of a home automation at the service of design. Therefore we are pleased to have given to the designers who have involved us one more tool to accomplish their work.

domotica salerno


Lighting Management: Lighting mostly managed with dimmer for incandescent lamps on Konnex bus. All areas are covered by ceiling sensors of presence and brightness. Management exclusively by wall touch screen.

Automation Management: shutters controlled by Konnex actuators 10A and managed directly by wall touch screen.

Air Conditioning Management: Heating and cooling systems combined. The cooling system is entrusted to DAIKIN split, fully integrated with the automation bus Konnex through bidirectional interfaces Konnex-Daikin.
The heating system is on the floor, with on / off valves. The circuit heat management is integrated through condensing boiler or through traditional fireplace. The system provides automatically for the integrative power up of DAIKIN in winter mode in reinforcing to the floor system when the temperature gradient between setpoint and read temperature exceeds 2 °.

Supervision and control: The whole apartment is managed directly and exclusively by touch screen 3 "Zennio. General supervision by iPad was made through a control unit RTI, which also provides for the control of several audio-video devices and the management of the system via Internet.

Times of realization: 6 about adw (actual days of work, only for programming and setting up).

Comments: This is a complete and innovative home automation system. For the first time we have created a system without any switch or home automation keypad. The management is entrusted exclusively to the touch screen, one for each room. Everything was possible adding to the touch sensors of presence and ambient light in each room. The system can operate in automatic and manual modes.

In automatic mode, all the lights are controlled by sensors, which also provide for the monitoring of the level of ambient light. In manual mode the lights are switched on and set by the touch screen.
Also the control of the DAIKIN split is entrusted exclusively to the touch, which also act as ambient thermostat in each room. The system automatically selects when you need to turn on the split and when underfloor heating is enough.

To sum up: A system of innovation almost pioneering, in which is completely abandoned the logic of a traditional system, leaving to the home automation the possibility of express its full potential. Obviously the skills of ClicHome joined a will innovative and free of prejudices on the part of the client, who has had the pleasure of experimenting with us new solutions.


Monastero Santa Rosa, Hotel and SPA - Conca dei Marini (Sa) ITALY

domotica albergo conca dei marini - salernodomotica albergo conca dei marini - salerno


Air Conditioning Management: Heating and cooling with floor radiant and fan coil. The system is built with dual-circuit hot and cold and valves 6-way. The system works both hot and cold with regulation valves 0-10V.
The fan coil is in support of the radiant. Each thermoregulator ClicHome also controls the level of environmental humidity, avoiding phenomena of condensation.

Supervision and control: Supervision and control software "tailored" by ClicHome. By the supervisor in reception you can set the temperature, switch from Summer to Winter mode, block the local keypad, see the status of the area.

Times of realization: about 4 adw (actual days of work, only for programming and setting up), the installation took about 10 adw by the electrical worker of the Hotel.

Comments: This is a temperature control system and automation definitely complex, both from a hydraulic point of view that of management. Each room is composed of 3-4 independent climate zones, and each zone has to manage two valves 6-way, as well as the speed of the fan coil. In addition to the thermoregulation each "thermostat" also controls the level of humidity and activates the fan coil to dehumidify in relation to the dew point (relative humidity measured).

The management of the valves is of modulating type, with separate range for hot and cold on the same valve (0 to 5V hot from 5 to 10V cold). In this way the thermoregulator can switch from summer to winter mode without the need to act on external machines, which remain always in function.

All the products used, as well as the software, have been realized ​"custom made" and according to the specific requests of the final customer.

The communication between the bus floor has been realized in optical fiber, with couplers for optical fiber synthetic optobus. The individual fieldbuses are standard serial 485.

To sum up: This is a system realized truly "custom made" in which nothing, from the single components to the firmware to the supervision software, is standard... also because there is no standard application or product to carry out the control of a climate system of this type. The choice of a serial standard 485 has proved successful, especially for the easy customization of the software. Installation times have been reduced to the bone, due to the programming made of all of the components before they were delivered to site.
Actual application, proof of the great ability to customize and adapt to customer specifications by ClicHome.

Video surveillance: The structure has been equipped with a video surveillance system to cover the entire perimeter connected on server accessible over the network.

Times of realization: about 80 adw (actual days of work - system supplied including installation)

Comments: The plant was originally for the only management of climate on Konnex bus from reception. In a second step, it was decided to add on the same bus of the building automation the system of access control through budge, this particularly in order to optimize energy savings obtained through the management of climate.
The structure has been later enlarged with a SPA connected to a wide outdoor area which includes a pool and a fitness area. The Konnex bus proved in this case all its flexibility, allowing to expand the system beyond its original purposes practically without structural limitations.

Outstanding the access control system ABB, which has proved above all very solid, even in harsh environmental conditions. The system works in the white list, so the TAG authorized to access are sent to the device from the reception software through two variables (1 byte and 14byte). The white list is then stored within the device, which makes the system stable and prevents the telegrams from the access control from "clogging" the bus.
The Minimac software of cards management is not the most intuitive. However, it is rather stable and once "got the hang", easy to use.

To sum up: access control system integrated into the climate management on Konnex bus. Excellent example of scalability in time and functions of a Konnex bus.

The excellence of this system is the extreme level of integration achieved, demonstrating the great potential of using an open protocol like Konnex.

The integration of RGB LED has been realized with an interface KNX-DMX. This way by home automation you have the total control of all the possible combinations of LED colors, without any difficulty even in direct control by keypads or touch screen.
The integration of the Climate has been realized with a Konnex-ModBus gateway. The conversion tables have been realized directly by ClicHome for the system in question. To avoid slowdowns in the bus, response telegrams were filtered, while the update of the temperature values ​​read on the Konnex bus have been limited to 1 reading every 40 seconds on the ModBus.

The use of this advanced form of integration has allowed to use for the climate directly the electronic boards supplied by the house, which incorporate evolved operation logic to optimize the combined use of fan-coil and radiant. The main purpose is to ensure the maximum comfort and avoid possible condensation phenomenon linked to radiation. A probe of air humidity on Konnex bus constantly updates the relative value on all ModBus cards, in order to immediately power the dehumidification machines, according to the read temprature and the dew point calculated.

Excellent the Schneider 10" touch used. If, from the side of graphic customization, proved to be a bit limited, nevertheless is incredibly fast in the command execution and reliable.

To sum up: An evolved home automation system. A Konnex system pushed to the highest levels of integration. The best ever infinity keypads. I do not think you could ask for more from a home automation system. Just a shame that the audio video part is limited to the multiroom SONOS.

  9. Sound system multiroom on 5-zone SONOS realized with and integrated into the control iPad. For the living area were used loudspeakers of Amina AIX5

Realization times: 20 day (actual days of work)

Comments: This is a system without compromises, both in terms of design through SENTIDO Basalts keypads, both from a technical profile, with the Konnex bus that manages all functions of the house.

The excellence of this system is the extreme level of integration achieved, demonstrating the great potential of using an open protocol like Konnex.

The integration of RGB leds has been realized with a Konnex-DMX interface. In this way from the automation you have the complete control of all possible combinations of led colors, without any difficulty, even in the direct control by keypads or touch screen.

The integration of the climate part has been realized with a Konnex-Modbus gateway. Conversion tables has been realized directly by ClicHome for the system in question. To avoid delays in the bus response telegrams were filtered, while the updating of the temperature values read on the Konnex bus were limited to one reading every 40 seconds on the ModBus. Using this advanced form of integration allowed to use for the climate electronic cards provided directly from the house, incorporating advanced operating modes to optimize the combination of fan-coil and radiant. The main purpose is to ensure maximum comfort and avoid the possible condensation phenomenon related to the radiant. A humidity sensor of air on the Konnex bus constantly updates the value on all ModBus cards, in order to immediately send the machines in dehumidification according to the temperature read and to the dew point calculated.

Excellent the touch 10 "Schneider used, that if on the side of the graphic personalization has showed to be a bit limited, on the other hand is incredibly fast and reliable in the execution of commands.

In summary: An advanced home automation system. A Konnex system pushed at the highest levels of integration. The touch keypads are the most beautiful of all. I do not think you can ask for more from a home automation system. Just a shame that the audio video part was limited to the multiroom Sonos.

Comments: Plant of remarkable dimensions and value, realized maximizing the "standard" package and integrating advanced features of audio and audiovideo. The integration is total and the customization according to customer requirements, maximum. Remarkable are the efforts in the realization of sets of lighting design. Control from iPhone once again shows all its advantages, so much to replace in everyday use the most famous and expensive touch screens. The bTicino MH200 controller of the scenarios has led this installation to the functional sophistication of a "top" system, realized with KNX technology. Significant the extent and customizing of the RTI touch dedicated to audio / video.

In summary: Total home automation for a system in which everything is integrated. Scenarios like the CINEMA control from the projector to the lights, from the motorization of the sheet to the room temperature. If the aim was to bring our STANDARD system to the highest levels, we have perfectly succeeded. This plant has not much to envy to many TOP plants. Very remarkable the Home Cinema, with a DLP CHRISTIE projector who mocks the many commercial projectors and brings home the true full hd cinema.
