This project was awarded ‘Best Residential Project’ at the Smart Solutions Awards 2018. It showcases Niko Home Control’s flexibility, longevity, ease of use, value for money and innovation.
The resident of this house is wheelchair bound and had been using the Nikobus system to better enable her to control many aspects of the home.
This upgrade allowed for full functionality of her home to be restored and new features added, including video entry and smartphone/tablet control.
The planning and design process was straightforward. The client required a secure, and safe home that was easy to use from her wheelchair. Speed and efficiency was imperative as the client needed to be able to react to doorbells, power cuts and emergencies, quickly and from her wheelchair.
Lighting and motor control would allow the client to change the lighting configurations at the touch of a button. This ease of use was important to the client.
Motor control has also improved the feeling of safety as she is now able to control curtains and blinds.
What’s more, rain sensors on windows mean that if it starts to rain, the windows with will shut automatically, so there’s no cause for concern if the resident cannot get to the window.
“Amazing!” says the Homeowner. “Niko Home Control has changed my whole way of living and has allowed me a relatively normal life within my own home.”
