Singapore, Sep 10, 2015 – ABB launches the world’s most advanced home automation system in Singapore, which is both easy to use and install.
ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has launched ABB-free@home®, its modular home automation system that simplifies the installation and commissioning process, in Singapore, saving home-owners and electricians valuable time. First launched at the Light and Building Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, the ABB-free@home® system is an ideal addition to any smart home.
As Singapore sets targets to become a smart and more sustainable city, and home automation remains an aspiration of new homeowners, ABB aims to make it easier than ever to build and configure your very own smart home.
The main difference between ABB-free@home® and other systems available in the market is the flexibility and ease-of-use it offers. All configuration can be done by the end-user, without the need for any specialized software or tools. As such, homeowners can make changes to the various automation commands in their home with ease. ABB-free@home lets homeowners configure different scenes to their liking: a relaxing environment to watch a film in the evening; mood lighting for dinner; or spot lighting for a conducive work environment.
“As Singapore continues to become a smarter city, we see ABB-free@home® as a strong proposition to homeowners, contractors and electricians. Not only is it easy to use for homeowners, it also makes home automation solutions more accessible to a wider range of installers who no longer need to undergo extensive training to help them build a smart home,” said Benson Lim, head of the Low Voltage Products in Singapore. “In addition, ABB also offers a range of state of the art lighting switches, such as our Millenium range, which integrate seamlessly with ABB-free@home® to provide ideal ambience customization for buildings and living spaces,” he added.
At the heart of ABB-free@home® is your smart device—which can be a tablet, phone or personal computer—that interfaces directly with the system allowing simultaneous control of different functions, such as blinds, lights, air-conditioning and door communication. However, the ease of use isn’t just limited to homeowners, but the electricians making the installation as well. ABB-free@home® adopts a streamlined modular approach which begins with a system that’s easy enough for contractors and electricians to integrate with existing electrical work in homes and small offices. Only a few components are required for the installation of ABB-free@home.
As a leader in automation technologies, ABB aims to create more value-added home automation solutions, and is establishing a strong footprint in home and building intelligence. Earlier this week, ABB unveiled the world’s most advanced voice activated smart home automation system at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, Germany. This latest innovation takes ABB-free@home to the next level, allowing homeowners to use voice commands to control more than 60 home automation functions. Be smart, be free at home.
