On September 8, coinciding with the inauguration of Macef
, the International Home Show in Milan, we were invited by the magazine “A” and “Gewiss” at the discovery of the Chorus Space and the domotic home. The term “domotics” is derived from the words “domos”, Greek for house, and “automatique”, automatic. To better explain a domototic, or automated home, Gewiss use (even in TV commercials), the analogy with the car: a cockpit controlled by a single device (controller) that manages all functions. The automated home, according to this much simplified and for “non-experts” analogy, is posed with the same functions. Why, before leaving, you have to check that all lights are off, doors closed, the electronics off, lower the heat, when you can access all these functions through a single control panel? In a house where all the drive units are networked, this is all possible with a single gesture. Home automation system aimed at simplifying, streamlining and improving the quality of domestic life. Just think of the many possibilities for a disabled or elderly person, to manage the house in a completely autonomous way and to increase the usability of their home. In addition, home automation systems are designed to save on fuel consumption, through targeted and total control of the various energy sources and a guarantee not to scatter them. Space Chorus in Fieramilano is an example of automated home, a hypothetical living space of 200 square meters, designed by architect Joseph di Pasquale. The open space and glass walls allow visitors to reach in view all the rooms of the house and test in first-hand the features of the home automation system developed by Gewiss, that, thanks to a model in which each component, whilst living alone, interacts with others, ensures endless combinations customized to individual needs. An experience that involves all five senses, thanks to the lighting, the sound system and the diffusion of aromatic fragrances. A visit, not only virtual, in the house of the future. Special thanks to Alessandra Versaci and all Ambito5 staff, the magazine “A” and “Gewiss” that guided us in this experience.
