Most new homes in Britain today have multiple electrical control systems, leading to walls peppered with banks of light switches, thermostats, heating controllers, fan controllers, alarm panels and multi-room audio controllers. With an intelligent home automation system, all of this clutter can be replaced with a single multi-purpose keypad or touchscreen.
Baulogic uses KNX, the only home automation and building control system recognised as a European and international standard (CENELEC EN50090, CEN EN 13321-1, ISO/IEC 14543-3).
DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) is an international standard protocol for digital lighting control (IEC 62386). Baulogic are experts in the DALI protocol for both commercial and residential projects, including automated emergency lighting testing to BS EN 62034, DALI 2 multi-sensors, and daylight compensation.
