FAQ

It is possible. However, it will require digging trenches for the installation of a new electrical wiring. It is possible to have a home automation system with wireless technology, but in Pro-Domotic, we prefer to avoid using wireless technology because it is not always reliable. We use it in very specific cases, for reasons of design, topology, etc. 

Yes. Our automation systems allow for great versatility. Nothing prevents you from developing the function of a switch to start a life scenario instead of lighting a lamp. This is why we work with the KNX standard. This protocol allows starting with a basic home automation system and evolving thereafter according to your needs, desires, and budget, as well as to future applications that will follow (washing machine, refrigerator, etc.). 

No. With a home automation system, energy savings are much greater than the energy required to operate a home automation system.

Example: in the near future, energy-using equipment (dishwasher, electric boiler, washing machine) will work in coordination with your power generator (photovoltaic panels, micro-wind, etc.). This will avoid paying tax on the use of the electricity network and the consumption of payable electricity.

The main advantages of a home automation system are:

  • More energy savings
  • Increased level of comfort
  • Possibility to upgrade automation, life scenarios
  • Increased security for you and your family
  • Multimedia library available from anywhere
  • Elegant and refined design

A home automation system allows you to manage:

  • Lights and electricity
  • Multimedia
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Pool, spa, sauna...
  • Warning systems
  • Shutters and gates
  • Watering your garden
  • And more…

You will be able to change your home automation system in 20 years without any problem, as Pro-Domotic works with KNX, which is an open protocol. This means that –unlike a proprietary system– each device may be replaced by a device from another brand. Over 300 brands currently work with the KNX system; your choice will not be limited. By cons, in case you have a proprietary home automation system, you may find yourself stuck in the event of bankruptcy, repurchase, etc.

After a power failure, the configuration of your home automation system remains the same. Additionally, you can choose the behavior of each element individually:

  • To either resume its status before failure (a lit light stays lit);
  • Or you can force a status (turn off the lights that were lit).

Our home automation systems integrate:

  • the KNX protocol for all the basic functions: lighting, heating, shutters, sensors, detectors.
  • the Lifedomus supervisor (optional) which allows you to control all your equipment. It is the interface with other protocols (multimedia), PCs and tablets.

A multiroom system is a comprehensive integrated audio and video installation at your home, present in all the rooms of a house and managed by central commands from a multimedia server. You will be able to enjoy your music or videos anywhere in your home without having to turn on a specific order and with a single command or through embedded commands in your walls. Everything is centralized and accessible on your media server from your smartphone, tablet or PC.

A life scenario or automation is a succession of several coordinated and interrelated tasks planned in advance. In this way, the scenario “I’m leaving my house,” for example, involves turning off all the lights, closing the shutters, switching the heating to a “reduced” mode, and activating the anti-burglar alarm.

Home automation refers to all the electronic, information and telecommunication technologies used to automate individual or collective buildings. In other words, home automation allows supervising, coordinating, and programming the functions of your home to meet your expectations. This is known as a smart home or home networking.

For a basic home automation system, you must plan for a budget of 2500€ for an apartment and 3000€ for a house, in addition to the electric station. The price varies depending on the number of items to be verified. In the long term, you will upgrade your automation system depending on your budget and your desires. 

This allows the ventilation system to work harder automatically when the motion sensor in the toilet indicates that a person is there, and to go back to the lowest mode when you leave home. Great energy saving is a plus!

Designing, installing and programming KNX systems is an integral job. KNX Professionals are synonymous with dedication, knowledge, and quality products. 

More comfort: you will no longer need to open and close them manually. But it is also more convenient: when going to bed, you simply need to press a button to close the curtains and shutters, turn off the lights, and activate the alarm.

In addition, by combining it with a weather station, you can limit the risk of overheating and, this way, live and come home in a comfortable room temperature. 

For several reasons:

  • Because the additional costs during a renovation or new construction is minimal for basic functions.
  • Once the basic system is there (wiring, bus...), it is very easy to evolve in order to enjoy the benefits of home automation (energy saving, comfort, security...)
  • Connected objects and home networking will be essential in the coming years.
  • Your home automation system will add value to your house.

You should absolutely avoid it! KNX represents over 300 manufacturers that produce a considerable number of switches for all tastes and budgets. Discover the selection of switches with which Pro-Domotic works!

In order for your home automation system to be resistant, durable and reliable, it must be installed and configured correctly. Pro-Domotic integrates the work of an installer, an electrician, an integrator, and an automation expert.

We undergo regular training to stay abreast of the latest technologies in the home automation market.

In addition, at the end of the installation, we will give you the entire program and plans of your home automation system.
