Smart technologies – Smart Touch

As part of the project Smart Home Models in VET 12.1.2023. representatives of the Smart Touch company visited us. Automation engineer Zvonko Pejaković gave a lecture on smart technologies, their implementation and the projects the company worked on.

During the lectures, students and teachers had the opportunity to hear and see what possibilities smart technologies offer and get to know them more closely. Using technologies such as KNX and Control4, it is possible to automate and optimize all segments in a modern home so that with their help they can make the space more accessible to people with disabilities, safer from risks, more comfortable, and also contribute to a more rational consumption of energy, which is an important aspect of the application of smart technologies.

Since these are open standards, they can implement components from different manufacturers and thus make the systems sustainable in the long term and significantly influence the consumption of electricity both in the household and in various business premises.

He showed finished projects and their functionalities.

Three particularly interesting solutions are T-Com Business Showroom, BRODOSPLIT and the solution for digital marks from the company Shell.
