The residence has increased security measures, such as burglar alarm and fire detection systems. At the main entrance, a keypad has been installed for access control whereas an external camera system is used for the guests. The external area is being monitored by a closed surveillance system. In both internal and external areas, sound and video systems have been installed. The lighting, as well as the blinds, the central heating and the water heater, is controlled by the KNX automation system of Siemens. All these devices are connected directly to the home server and all the information is being sent to it. In this way, the user can control the residence with the use of any device, such as tablets, smartphone and computers devices, regardless his/her location.
