Install Automation, Exhibits Innovative Home Automation & Energy Monitoring at the NEC

Leading home automation company, Birmingham-based Install Automation, is exhibiting its latest home technology and energy monitoring innovations at the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC (Stand T10, Hall 12) between 18th and 21st March, 2010.

With a string of recent awards, investment and grant wins, Install Automation is one of Birmingham’s true success stories – positioned in the high-growth home automation and energy management sector. An Innovation Award winner, Install Automation has recently won investment from InvestBX/Birmingham City Council, and an Advantage West Midlands ‘Proof of Concept’ grant, to accelerate expansion of its home automation business and its innovative home control/energy monitoring product, OpenAV.

Install Automation’s solutions range from stylish and impressive single-room home cinema systems through to the most sophisticated and discreet integrated whole-house automation, entertainment and energy monitoring solutions available.

Managing Director, Adam Kent, commented that the key benefits of Install Automation’s intelligent multi-room solutions were to “simplify home automation control, hide away all of that unsightly electronic equipment, create high-value, high-functionality ‘smart’ homes and to combine this with advanced real-time energy monitoring”.

The company’s systems can provide music, video, TV and gaming to every room integrated with heating/climate control, lighting, energy monitoring, door/gate entry, CCTV/security, curtain/blind control, telephony and computing. Its home cinemas are impressive spaces for enjoying the best high-definition entertainment with simplified control and the minimum of clutter.

At the show, the company is showing the latest version of its innovative high-tech, touch-screen home control and energy monitoring solution, OpenAV. OpenAV is, according to Adam, “more advanced and more affordable than traditional home automation and energy monitoring solutions – it’s the reason why we can offer the most advanced home automation systems at more affordable prices than before”.

The real-time energy readouts and load controls of Install Automation’s OpenAV product are clear and informative, enabling homeowners to see how much energy their home is consuming and the effect of switching off energy-consuming devices – this saves money and helps the environment.
