Eminent has introduced a new starter kit in its e-Domotica brand of home automation products. The e-Domotica Starter Kit should be easy to install and can be controlled through a computer, tablet or smartphone with internet connection.
The kit consists of a touchscreen control panel, two switches, an energy reader, wireless motion sensor and a security camera. The bundled software allows users to be notified by phone, sms or email when movement is detected. By means of a macro, all lights can switch on when the alarm goes off. Furthermore, the camera's video feed can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Apart from adding to the security, the lights can also be switched on and off remotely. Movie enthusiasts for example, can automatically dim their lights and enable the receiver as soon they turn on their Blu-ray players.
Eminent's e-Domotica Starter Kit is expandable and compatible with products from other brands that operate according to the Z-Wave standard. The recommended price is specified at €998 (£805), which includes five years of warranty.
