Veris Industries
One of the most ambitious residential projects in Spain is the Altos del Hipódromo Neighborhood in which all 48 homes and private social club are automated, monitored, and centrally and remotely controlled. The client wanted to integrate all the various subsystems such as lighting, blinds, HVAC, heated floors, access control, intrusion and technical alarms in each of the homes and social club as well as incorporate street lighting control that could be scheduled and controlled by sunlight intensity level. The ultimate goal is for the entire neighborhood to be connected to a central supervision station where the security personnel can manage all the home alarms and each home featured an intuitive HMI where users could watch and control all the subsystems of the house.
