Groupe Atlantic

Groupe Atlantic

Combining comfort and home automation

Groupe Atlantic is a major player in thermal comfort in Europe.
For over 40 years, Groupe Atlantic has been designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions to provide more comfort
and savings while respecting the environment: heating (electric radiators, boilers, heat pump), domestic hot water
(electric, solar and thermodynamic boilers), air conditioning and ventilation.
Its success is based on its key brands, especially in France: Atlantic and Thermor.
Groupe Atlantic is aware of the energy efficiency potential related to communication between home equipment
and has chosen io-homecontrol® as its radio protocol.
Its objective is to have its electric heating, thermodynamic boiler, heat pump and boiler equipment communicate
with each other and other home equipment (windows, shutters, blinds; etc.) to save on consumption while improving comfort.
Groupe Atlantic is therefore planning to develop this partnership to design smart, energy-saving,
remote-controlled homes thanks to home automation compatible with the Tahoma® box.
In November 2013, at the Interclima+Elec show at Paris Nord Villepinte, the Group presented for the first time
a new generation of energy management and consumption display systems, with the io-homecontrol® radio protocol.
This system concerns new homes and renovation projects.
The renovation range will be completed in June 2014 by battery-powered solutions.

Hitachi

Hitachi

Connected heating

Hitachi, the heating and air conditioning specialist, is joining forces with Somfy to provide
high performance solutions for comfort and energy-saving in the home.
The TaHoma® interface, which was developed by Somfy, controls Hitachi's heat pumps
and adapts their operation to suit the other equipment in the home.

Users simply use the application to control their heat pump.
They choose the operation mode (heating / air conditioning / absence) and
reference temperatures and configure their weekly programming.

GDF SUEZ DolceVita
 

GDF SUEZ

Complementary energy

GDF SUEZ's the world's leading energy company, supplies energy
and energy services to nearly 22 million customers worldwide.
The group favors a mix of energies and energy efficiency, especially in the home.
Home automation perfectly complements the energy control solutions the company provides.
GDF SUEZ has chosen to join forces with Somfy, the world leader in home automation.
They share the same vision of the home of tomorrow and a value-based community,
built around industrial excellence and a commitment to their customers.
GDF SUEZ and Somfy's complementary expertise will enable comfort,
output and energy management to be optimised in the near future.
This will translate into interaction between the energy sector (consumption, heating control, etc.)
and the home (its windows, doors, lighting, security, etc.).
The equipment that is connected to each other within a  smart home may be remote controlled,
thanks to the services that are based on the Tahoma® infrastructure.

Honeywell

Honeywell

From thermostats to home automation

The international Honeywell group is one of the main leaders in high technology systems.
It operates in sectors such as building, aerospace, the automotive sector and industry.
The group has also been interested in wireless home automation for a long time and was already offering its own system in 1995.
With a very strong presence on the heating market, the Group has been an innovator in thermal comfort,
which have built the brand's reputation.
Indeed, its founders invented the room thermostat in 1885.
Nearly one century later, the company was also the first to market a programmable radiator head.
By integrating the io-homecontrol® radio protocol, the Honeywell group wishes to work in synergy with referential players,
such as Somfy, who operate on the home automation market.
So, the Evohome wireless solution, which is intended to regulate a smart home's thermal comfort room by room,
can now be controlled by the Tahoma© box.

Velux

Velux

Roof automation

The Velux group was one of our first partners, convinced as they were of the usefulness
of the io-homecontrol® radio protocol in developing "smart" home automation.
A Danish company, Velux has been concentrating its activities for nearly 70 years on providing light and fresh air via the roof.
It offers a wide choice of roof windows, skylights, rolling shutters, blinds, interior decoration, motors, engines and solar sensors.
Its products are sold across all five continents and its brand has an excellent reputation. It is, in fact, a world leader in its field.
Reducing environmental impact is also one of Velux's major commitments:
from the design of industrial premises to products, and CO2 emissions to waste reduction.
Its roof windows, shutters and blinds contribute to visual and thermal comfort, energy savings and indoor air quality.
Home automation is naturally one of its areas of development.
io-homecontrol® wireless technology with feedback is very useful for roofs,
in loft conversions, and above a mezzanine or staircase.
With smart home automation, io-homecontrol® Velux roof windows connected to the Tahoma® box
can be accessed even by remote control and are closed by sensors at the slightest shower.
