iminate Designs Automation System with Safety and Simplicity
Users can create guest access and monitor energy usage with the iminate management dashboard
Melbourne, FL – April 24, 2018 – AVidea Group (AViG), a consumer electronics manufacturer, shares some of the unique safety features of their new line of integrated, scalable, automation solutions for residential and light-commercial markets.
iminate has developed special features, ideal for homeowners looking to provide their guests with automation control or hotels wanting to add simple and robust automation to guest rooms. iminate’s browser-based management dashboard allows users to monitor and control multiple room systems from anywhere in the world. Features include notifications of when the room is occupied, displaying energy usage by device, room or floor, and the ability to configure the system.
With iminate, the user provides a unique password to the guest that allows the guest to control the system from their smartphone and the user determines which devices the guest may control. The initial connection is via WiFi, and the guest has control of the system in a matter of seconds after downloading the free app. The password is deactivated when the guest checks out or leaves.
iminate digital lighting and fan controllers constantly monitor the output. If something unusual appears, such as shorted wires, high current loads, dramatic temperature changes or any other anomalies, the iminate system will shut off the single device, often before the circuit breaker does. Other devices on the circuit remain operating.
“Security is the foundation,” said John Anderson, the Chief Technology Officer of AVidea Group. “By building simplicity on top of a secure architecture we keep things easy. Having security built-in makes it simple for users to give access to guests, whether it’s a single-family home or a large hotel chain. Users can manage energy costs throughout a home, a single room, or any given floor while providing their guests simplified control.”
The iminate suite contains a total of 14 products including the first true digital dimmers and motor controllers, door and window sensors, occupancy sensors, third party system interfaces, smart phone apps and a browser-based management dashboard. iminate’s software products simplify the entire smart home and smart building process. iminate’s “Imagine simple” philosophy drives the engineering decisions that affect every stage of system implementation – operation, system design and installation. A perfect solution for the home or building owner, hotelier and B&B host, iminate manages energy costs and provides an elegant user experience, as well as add value and profitability for the integrator with robust and reliable products.
