Hillside Villas Queenstown

By using the KNX building control system backbone across all four units, we were able to utilise the Zennio keypads which ensure a minimalistic look and feel to the walls. This is further accentuated by having the thermostatic control and temperature sensors built into the keypads to reduce wall clutter. In the ensuites – a single wall switch and a humidity sensor controls all the functions of a modern bathroom – undertile heating, mirror demister, fan and lighting.

Centralised control of the units using an app (tablet, smart phone and PC web browser) for daily control requirements (A/C & undertile adjustments, lighting and shading).

Door sensors which reduce power wastage; if a sliding door is opened and left open for more than 2 minutes while the aircon/wall heater is on the aircon/wall heater will switch off. It will then switch back on once the sliding door is closed.

Client control through remote access which allows them to liven up a property based on occupancy and switch everything off when there is a gap between bookings.
