ABB helps build the 'modern dream' with its intelligent building management system - i-bus EIB

ABB Limited (Group Headquarters) : 31 January, 2004  (New Product)
The new series revisits Tom Perry's ambitious self-build Cloud 8 project located in an area of outstanding beauty in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire.
The new series revisits Tom Perry's ambitious self-build Cloud 8 project located in an area of outstanding beauty in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire.

This contemporary-designed family home reveals how the home of the future has now become home of the present thanks to some clever ABB technology.

Tom's learning curve, more akin to a vertical overhang, reveals the pitfalls of undertaking such a challenging project. His patience and problem solving skills are tested to the limit, not to mention the medical skills of his local A&E department!

When Cloud 8 reaches completion, it is hoped that Tom's life will become less stressful thanks to a little help from ABB's intelligent building management system.

ABB's i-bus EIB low-voltage control system will be used to manage a wide range of functions both inside and outside the property. A roof-mounted weather station will detect wind, rain and temperature levels, automatically adjusting window blinds, lighting and heating. Security will also be controlled with a number of passive infra-red motion detectors and the whole building will be completely networked and managed using i-bus EIB.
