- Higher rent income though property upgrading
- Enhancement of marketing attractiveness (lower vacancy rates, flexible orientation to specific segments etc.)
- Sale of additional residential services, e.g. for age-appropriate living
Diverse and frequently changing lifestyles, combined with heightened demands on living, are ensuring that the value of a building will not be gauged solely by its extraordinary situation and architecture in the future, but above all by the availability of a digital infrastructure. It is the basis for a contemporary residential range – not only for today but for the future above all.
You can lay the foundation stone for this today with the digitalSTROM platform. That is because a residence equipped with digitalSTROM is not only constantly in step with the times, but is always ahead of them too.
The lifecycle of a building’s basic infrastructure differs considerably from the innovation cycle of the household appliances and entertainment electronics that are acquired by the occupant. Thanks to the updatability of built-in appliances, the infrastructure always stays up-to-date, is compatible with the latest appliances and the most up-to-date software and offers new applications with every release.
A digital infrastructure means that residences can be equipped with different target groups in mind. As a result, marketing, managing and facility management processes can be organised more efficiently, which opens up new potentials for additional profits from residential services. Thanks to a digital infrastructure, the Internet of Things is no empty phrase, but realised through the digital twin of residence and appliances.
The open system approach enables you to continue to look to your preferred suppliers and manufacturers for all existing appliances in a residence and participating trades. All products and appliances can be integrated into the digitalSTROM platform with ease and expanded by attractive add-ons.
There are also unlimited possibilities open to the occupant. Virtually all electrical and also the growing number of IP appliances present in a household can be integrated into the digitalSTROM platform at any time via Plug & Play. Whether it is a vintage standard lamp, Sonos music system, Philips Hue light – the digital residence enters into interplay with all appliances instantly.
digitalSTROM places particular value on data protection and private sphere. Accordingly, system architecture, infrastructure and operating processes are so arranged as to safeguard tenants’ private sphere and minimise the risk of misuse.
digitalSTROM creates transparency with regard to the energy consumption of every single appliance, every room as well as of the entire residence. Energy monitoring can be depicted in the app or on the wall display or used for energy-saving options.
In conjunction with software and cognitive intelligence, built-in sensor technology offers comprehensive protection against storms, fire or unwanted visitors. The very same sensors are used for various applications. Depending on event, the appliances present in the residence react appropriately and inform the occupant about the event via audio system, room display, app, SMS or e-mail.
Room-moods, under the inclusion of built-in lights, music, shading and air conditioning, are retrieved via the press of a button, or speech. Comfort is considerably improved through the advance winding-in of blinds and awnings, automatic watering etc.
By means of automation and services available through subscription, digitalSTROM reduces energy consumption or optimises domestic current use. Heating and cooling is performed under consideration of absences, weather developments and other parameters that are useful for this.
As things stand today, living room and bedroom are preferably networked. Kitchens and bathrooms, though, are increasingly gaining in importance in modern homes and are usually an equal factor in choosing a residence. The interplay of digital building technology with plumbing apparatuses and kitchen appliances opens up new worlds of experience and enhancing convenience and safety.
The digital bathroom adjusts to the individual preferences of every single occupant. From the personally preferred light-mood in the morning through to the greeting and the playing of the favourite playlist via the loudspeaker system in the evening – virtually everything is possible. In combination with electronic, height-adjustable bathroom furniture, it even adapts to family members of all ages and body sizes. Built-in monitors, taking the form of bathroom furniture, can be turned by means of lighting, water and sound into a component of moods and scenes and thus provide a completely new bathroom experience.
Thanks to its digital infrastructure, a building equipped with digitalSTROM not only becomes more flexible, but it is always right up to date technologically. That is of particular advantage when market conditions change due to demographic, economic, technical or socio-cultural developments.
Thanks to the modular system approach, technological product innovations can be integrated quickly and uncomplicatedly. The digitalSTROM installation thereby not only automatically remains right up to date, but it also continues to evolve in the course of time
