WHAT IS THE AVERAGE COST OF A SMART HOUSE SYSTEM?

Koszty automatyki budynkowej ile kosztuje inteligentny dom
It all depends on the complexity of the system and functionalities it is expected to provide. When designing the Grenton System, we did our best to optimize the individual module cost without sacrificing quality.

A simple smart-house system, offering basic functionalities, costs around 2000-3000 PLN. The system, with a full set of functionalities, can cost between 6000 and 12000 PLN.

You should keep in mind that even the simplest system will significantly affect your comfort and savings.

Smart house systems are not solely for large mansions!

They can also significantly increase the comfort of living and offer savings in small apartments, as they offer advanced illumination, heating and home cinema control capabilities.

Due to the fact that the Grenton System comes with very small wireless modules, installing it in fully-furnished apartments is easy and does not require you to make any changes to your wiring.

AT WHAT POINT, WHEN BUILDING MY HOME, SHOULD I DECIDE WHETHER I WANT TO LIVE IN A SMART HOUSE?

The earlier you make the decision, the easier will it be to choose the best system.

The best option is to set up the wiring in a "star architecture" with all the circuits ending in a control box. This way, you will not only be able to postpone choosing a specific system until later, but will also allow you to use regular wiring without smart house modules.

CAN I INSTALL THE SMART HOUSE SYSTEM AFTER I AM DONE BUILDING OR REFURBISHING MY HOUSE?

Inteligentny system w gotowym, ukończonym budynku, domu lub mieszkaniu
Yes! You can easily and noninvasively install the smart house system in an already finished building.

Grenton System offers both DIN rail modules, intended for installation in switching cabinets and wireless modules that can be installed noninvasively in installation boxes, without any modifications to the building wiring and burdensome refurbishing.

With these, you will be able to install the system in buildings and apartments that are already inhabited.

DO I NEED TO CHOOSE A PARTICULAR SYSTEM DURING THE DESIGN WORK?

If the wiring is designed around the "star" architecture, with all circuits ending in one or more switching cabinets, where DIN rail modules are installed, the choice of specific system manufacturer can be made just weeks before any work begins.

Most available systems are designed to be installed in this manner.

HOW SHOULD I DESIGN MY WIRING IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE THE SMART HOUSE INSTALLATION?

When preparing your wiring, you have to consider what features the smart house system supposed to offer, and what kind of set up the chosen system requires.

Smart house modules are installed in a central switching cabinet where all electric circuits meet. This solution is seemingly more expensive, but when taking into account every input/output, modules installed on DIN rails turn out to be cheaper.

Statistics show that buildings equipped with smart systems are safer than normal buildings. The buildings are not only safer from intruders, but also fire or flooding.

Of course, much depends on the encryption algorithms used to secure data transfer between modules.

Grenton System utilizes the extremely safe AES algorithm that has never been broken and is used, among other things, in electronic banking systems.

Failure of one module does not affect other modules.

In order to make the removal of any possible failures easier, the Grenton System is equipped with mechanisms that makes an almost complete automatic transfer to the configuration onto a module replacing a defective one.

It is worth noting that Grenton modules are manufactured in the European Union using top quality components from leading providers worldwide. This makes Grenton System modules very reliable.

Yes. Grenton system allows for integration with almost any standard alarm central control system.

By connecting the building's automation system to the alarm central control system, you will gain access to two new functionalities - you will be able to activate the alarm using an RTV remote or smartphone, or turn on the lights if the alarm is activated.

WHERE IS THE SYSTEM CONFIGURATION STORED?

Konfiguracja modułów systemu inteligentnego domu
In Grenton System, the whole smart house configuration is stored in a file that you can back up and store in multiple copies in a remote location.

When you change the configuration, the data is sent to CLU modules that store it in their non-volatile memory. If the CLU module needs to be replaced, the system will automatically copy the data from the file to a new module.

This way, should any of the modules malfunction, the system will help you ensure that a previous configuration is restored.
