Home control and lighting solutions from Schneider Electric easily and seamlessly transform your lifestyle as well as enhance the way that you enjoy your home.
Schneider Electric India Pvt. Ltd (SEI), a 100% subsidiary of Schneider Electric Industries SAS is well known for its unique vision, progressive management and above all, its exemplary quality.
Schneider’s core strengths are their global technology expertise in the lighting control area and the network of system integrators and partners that they have developed over the years.
From 1836 to today, Schneider Electric has transformed itself into a global specialist in energy management. Starting from its roots in the iron and steel industry, heavy machinery, and ship building, it moved into electricity and automation management. After 170 years of history, Schneider Electric has today become the solution provider that will help you make the most of your energy.
Focused on making energy safe, reliable, efficient, productive and green, Schneider Electric offers integrated solutions across multiple market segments. The company offers the most comprehensive solutions which include Wiser Homes with C-Bus, KNX and DALI wired solutions, EZInstall3 ZigBee true retrofit wireless solutions and even a complete range of standalone sensors and time switches.
With the above; one can have home automation functions like individual lighting and scene controls, time-controlled functions, power monitoring, audio/video integration, security, temperature controls, mobile/Ipad controls, any third party integrations, and detection and control with sensors.
Their most advance control system is C-Bus. The biggest advantage of the C-Bus lighting system is that it has distributed intelligence. Each input module has its in-built non volatile memory hence even if one of the modules fail the balance system continues to work, whereas other systems which have a centralised memory module or processor, the whole system stops functioning in case of a failure of the central processor.
C-Bus system works on standard UTP Cat 5 cables which are easily available and economical too. C-bus system unlike others also offers input modules having same aesthetic finishes as that of other wiring devices like power and data sockets. C-Bus from Schneider is also supported by an in-house strong team of design engineers, skilled system integrators and an in-house after sales service department.
Expressing his views on the scenario of home automation today, Mr. Sameer Das, General Manager – Strategy & Marketing – Buildings Business, Schneider Electric India says, “The home automation industry is now evolving more to a converged offering with integration of lighting, security, AV and automation. Advances in the areas of apps are also changing user interfaces and it is becoming much more user friendly and simple for users to manage, just with their handheld devices. The most important aspect of home automation is lighting control either by remote control or hand held devices like tablets and smart phones. Mood lighting or scene lighting for relaxation, movie watching, dining or parties can be created by the click of a single button. Every time lights or combination of lights are dimmed for creating various scenes, it proportionately reduces the power consumption to save energy.
Another aspect of home automation is curtain or blinds control in which sensors measure the natural light outside and open blinds automatically as well as dim or switch off peripheral lights where by saving energy. This is also known as energy saving by day light harvesting,” he explains.
