viki expozitia electrica demonstrativa 2017 invitatie

Echipa VIKI se pregăteşte de soare – însă nu pentru concediu, ci pentru că, în perioada 15-17 Iunie 2017, se va afla la Pavilionul Expoziţional Constanţa, unde va lua parte la Expoziţia Electrică Demonstrativă, ediţia a VIII-a, organizată de Euro Vial Lighting. Evenimentul se adresează atât profesioniștilor din domeniu, cât și beneficiarilor finali şi va găzdui cei mai importanți furnizori de materiale electrice, specialiști din domeniu, companii cu renume și greutate în branșă, atât la nivel național, cât și internațional.

VIKI se află la prima participare în cadrul expoziţiei, care este cel mai important eveniment dedicat iluminatului, echipamentelor electrice şi automatizărilor din sud-estul României. Echipa Viki Knows va prezenta la Constanţa sistemul de automatizare tip casă inteligentă cu algoritmi de învăţare şi imitare a comportamentului uman, care se adaptează la obiceiurile familiei utilizatorului.

Security function, natively integrated in the smart home: see and hear VIKI’s intrusion alarm! [VIDEO]

The VIKI smart home protects the house and its stuff through a natively integrated function and, in case of alarm, all family members will receive notifications on their mobile phones.

It is important to know that the same sensors that control the lights or measure the temperature and humidity are also in charge of motions monitoring in the house. So, it’s not necesarry to invest in many more different systems (heating, air conditioning, humidity, security), which would come each with their sets of specific sensors, dedicated controller and communication system.

VIKI only uses one sensor, with multiple functions and capabilities, one analytic element (the house’s computer) and modern warning elements, already integrated in the house’s design – in this case, the TV set and the sound system of the house. All these lead to a substantial lower cost for the system, opposite to the case where each facility of the house would be run by a dedicated system.

Another different thing about VIKI, unlike other “smart” houses, is the way the warning message is communicated, in case of intrusion. It’s not a classic alarm that only makes noise; it’s an automated message that is broadcasted through the TV set and/or the house’s sound system. If there are more rooms in the house with VIKI multimedia, the message is broadcasted in each of them.

The warning message was conceived especially for VIKI by a psychologist, who delivered valuable information about the way the message must be transmited, the way it must be spoken, so that the effect of discouraging the intrusion attempt should be highest.

VIKI is the only smart home system that has a built-in security and active protection of the house function, even when we leave the pet inside the house. According to the option the user selects (see the video, at ”20), the house activates all the sensors, or just the perimeter sensors (open windows/doors), when the user leaves.

You can see in the video below how, after the users leave the house and the location is armed, all the consumers are turned off; the house switches to an energy saving mode, without the users intervention – they don’t have to manually turn off the lights or the TV or the heating system, when they leave.

VIKI: installation and configuration

Having a virtual assistant attributions, installing a smart home system may seem a complex and difficult process, but not if we are speaking about VIKI.

One of VIKI’s particularities is the fact that it is easy to install and configure. Thanks to the learning and the imitation of the human behaviour algorithms, the system is automaticaly adapting to the changes in the environment where it is installed, without needing a manual reconfiguration of the settings every time the family makes changes in its preferences.

The solution may be installed in new or finished houses, using a wireless technology that does not require special cabling.

Sensors and access control equipment are able to function on network energy or batteries with a 4 months to 2 years life, depending on the chosen type.

Once the system is installed in your home it will learn all the habits of family members related to lighting, climate and multimedia devices and know when to put them into action, and when the daily routine of the family is changing, the system reconfigures itself with the changes it register.

Smart ways to live

Alongside the main facilities, VIKI integrates some  smaller facilities, but with equally important benefits to our comfort.

And because for many families the kitchen is the central point of the house and the place where we spend the most enjoyable moments, we can not overlook the benefits of an automation system in this space.

The “Good Morning” scenario

With VIKI “at duty” in your home, the mornings are just perfect, because once we activate the “Good Morning” scenario, the intelligence of the solution will save you from all the task that you were doing untill know, even making the coffee.
When the motion sensors will identify activity in the house, the system will automatically raise the blinds for natural light to enter the house, ambient music or radio will start in the kitchen and the  coffee machine will activate itself.Scenariu-VIKI-5-phone_2

More than that it will keep you updated with the weather forecast, and the agenda will notify you with any events or meetings you have scheduled for the day.

The interactive shopping list

How many times it happens to all of us to forget the shopping list at home or to forget to purchase something that we really need.

VIKI helps you create toghether with the familly  the shopping list and  it sends you notifications when you walk by the store from where you can buy certain items.
Moreover, on the basis of saved recipes and culinary preferences, VIKI may recommendations for the family menu.

Lifestyle

And because a healthy lifestyle means a constant monitoring, VIKI has a function that enables continuous tracking  of the  weight and other biometric parameters essential for a healthy lifestyle.

VIKI therefore not only ensures a pleasant atmosphere every morning,  but like a virtual butler it takes care of other aspects of your daily life.
