A principle that is changing our lifestyles. This is why we choose objects that help us to optimise our time and our energies. Like Arké: reliable and precise, with functions and controls that make our everyday gestures easier.
Home automation: optimised energy, security and simplified management. We prefer technologies that reduce consumption. Arké, with the By-me home automation system, prevents energy waste and makes it easier, quicker and safer to manage all the rooms in the home.
Control/ Comfort/ Security/ Energy efficiency
The whole home is centrally controlled thanks to a single touch screen with simple and intuitive interfaces, either locally according to your needs or remotely through the Internet via PC, mobile phone, smartphone and latest-generation tablets. Managing lighting and sound systems, handling curtains or roller shutters, adjusting the intensity of various lamps, or creating colourful lighting effects. All this also through pre-set scenarios according to your needs.
Thermostats that adjust the temperature to actual everyday needs; devices that control electrical loads, monitor consumption and display produced energy. Rationally managing all the energy in your home because Arké is also energy awareness.
Excellent technology that silently protects people and their home at any time. Various types of intrusion alarms, detectors to report and block any gas leaks or flooding, video door entry systems, and the option to control entry.
EnOcean, Bluetooth and ZigBee radio frequency wireless controls make it possible to extend the system to all those areas subjected to architectural restrictions or where masonry work is not an option.
Practicality, freedom of wireless installation and versatility. Suitable for all surfaces (such as wood, glass, masonry, etc.), wireless devices offer the practicality of controls without batteries, thereby respecting the environment while also achieving energy savings.
The series by Vimar feature Philips light bulb controls from the Friends of Hue programme to offer smart lighting control.
