Promis and Effective Technologies, two IT companies based in Nizhny Novgorod, in the mid-Volga area, have developed an advanced software system called DomExpert. From a single IT platform the product can control all smart devices, metering instruments and surveillance systems installed in a residential building, the regional news portal Delovoy Kvartal reported.
In this project, smart instruments that gauge the consumption of thermal and electrical energy, water, etc., automatically send data out to a special software-hardware complex. Fully processed, the data is then forwarded to a local public utilities management center.
Apartments in a building equipped with the system have smart electrical sockets that can be de-energized remotely, and also HVAC systems that enable the owner to remotely control, for example, air temperature in his apartment before he comes home.
No key is required to let the owner in—an e-ID or fingerprint is enough. With the new video surveillance, one can see what is happening outside and in house corridors from the comfort of his own apartment.
A user can access all these and some other interesting control functions from a single mobile gadget.
The DomExpert system has already been successfully tested in a smart housing real estate project in Nizhny Novgorod.
