A shared spirit approach from materials to technology
Our homes combine high-performance materials, optimum power management and an intelligent production system, all controlled via the Homsphere app. We provide a purchaser-friendly economic model.
Design and facilities
The THPE (Very High Energy Performance) standard and the Swiss Minergie P and Minergie A labels demonstrates our houses are as energy-efficient as it is currently possible to be. This is thanks to the highly insulating materials used, the construction typology, Homsphere’s engineering and the house’s central server power management.
Production and consumption
Storing and redistributing photovoltaic power provides homeowners greater financial and energy independence. One can see, track changes in the house’s energy performances and adjust its facilities at any time via our easy-to-use Homsphere application.
Technology and artificial intelligence
The beating heart of a Homsphere house’s intelligence and ability to react is its central server, coupled with sophisticated home automation. The house tames and channels the power it produces, making our daily life around renewable energies simple and less constraining, whilst also preserving the future of our energy supplies for the benefit of all. The central server and regular development of the Homsphere algorithm will create a truly intelligent and reactive ‘learning house’.
Our goal is also an economic one: render Homsphere houses affordable and easier to finance. What is our model and how do we commit to it?
Internet of Home – IoH
IoH – What is the ‘Internet of Home’?
IoH, or ‘internet of home’, is a term describing the management of all the facilities, objects and equipment connected to the central server and the internet. They can be controlled from your tablet or telephone. It is part of the major technological revolution represented by IoT, or the ‘Internet of Things’. Homsphere combines IoT with two different areas: energy and platform
Energy: Forecasting, channelling, storing, purchasing and selling renewable energy produced by the house using the Homsphere algorithm and facilities. It communicates with the platform and anticipates users’ needs.
Platform: Created by Homsphere to integrate all house’s facilities, the platform allows it to anticipate and instantly locate the required renewable energy to run properly using secured internet connection.
IoH is the link between technology, energy independence, and mastering renewable energy. It keeps the house, and by extension the car, carbon-neutral and helps ensure savings for its users.
IoH – How does the ‘internet of home’ work?
The house’s facilities, objects and equipment communicate with each other and pool their data via the central server (platform). The Homsphere algorithm will transforme them into ‘actions’ in line with your needs and living pace. In time this becomes automated – in other words, the better the house gets to know you, the more active it will be. For example, temperature management and power storage or reselling are linked to the house’s weather station via the central server.
IoH – Comprehensive and secure.
Homsphere’s native and proprietary app controls and organises all functionality. Your connection with Homsphere’s IoH is strictly private, protected and encrypted.
IoH – What you can do right now with your ‘internet of home’.
You control your Homsphere house’s power resources, comfort and security at all time. Wherever you are, your IoH:
– Let you control heat, ventilation, lighting and openings
– Checks and reports on doors, windows and blinds security
– Keeps you updated about energy consumption of every room and all your electrical appliances
– Allows you to track and forecast your house’s energy production
– Let you know how your solar panels, batteries, ventilation, etc.. are performing
– Tells you your car’s charge level
IoH – What you will be able to do with your IoH in the future.
The central server’s algorithm will evolve to enable task automation, and will propose solutions without you asking for them.
For example, if your house’s battery is running low and weather forecast looks poor for the next two days, the Homsphere algorithm will ask your permission to transfer part of your car’s power into the house. These is one of the many examples of what will be achieved soon with Homsphere’s IoH.
