CLOUD BASED HOME AUTOMATION WITH ECONNECX™
The cloud is the Internet, more precisely; it is where you can access things remotely over the Internet. When something is in the cloud, it means it is stored on servers on the Internet instead of on your computer. It lets you access your calendar, email, files, and more from any computer that has an Internet connection. There are many reasons to use the cloud but the main reasons are convenience and reliability. When it comes to Home Automation leveraging the cloud requires a framework for its management.
econnecx™ is an internet based home automation solution that provides the ability to control your home’s energy, environment and security from anywhere in the world. econnecx™ is made in New Zealand and supported by the industry’s leading companies.
When it comes to implementation, it can be easily installed by a qualified electrician. A discrete econnecx automation device is installed beside your new or existing switchboard, and connected to the wiring system of your home or office. econnecx™ will then be customised to your needs and is discussed with your electrican on site. econnecx™ can be installed in new homes or during a home renovation.
