Real estate developer Jain Group has embarked on a futuristic project that aims to bring home automation to Kolkata’s residents. Not content with providing high end luxury projects, Jain Group has decided to lure investors and home owners by including home automation technology at the design stage of their new project titled the Dream One. This kind of technology is usually retro-fitted in Indian homes, but Jain Group has become the first real estate developer in Kolkata to provide automated homes right from the beginning.
The developer has roped in the Hager group to engineer the intelligent homes at the Dream One project. Hager is one of Europe’s leading firms in the field of home automation and has a wealth of experience designing smart homes abroad. By bringing their expertise and experience to the table, Hager group has the capacity to be the first to design such apartments in Kolkata. Hager will provide home automation services to 229 flats and 12 duplex apartments in the Dream One project. These flats and apartments will be fitted with smart sensors, cameras and alarm systems that will make it possible for home owners to control various aspects of their homes remotely through a smartphone or tablet. With the help of Hager systems, home owners can control the lighting of their homes, air conditioning, certain home appliances, locks and fire alarms from their phones or tablets. One of the most important features of home automation is that home owners will be able to know if there is an emergency at their home when they’re not present. With the help of sensors and cameras, home owners will be alerted if there is a threat to their home – whether it is a fire or a gas leak – and the owners can immediately hit a panic button which will alarm the authorities who can then take suitable action. These kinds of features demonstrate that smart homes aren’t just about convenience and comfort, but are also a boon for safety and security.
And all this safety and convenience comes at an affordable cost too. The developers estimate that the cost of installing these systems comes out to be an additional Rs 2-3 per square feet. Also, as per the needs of the residents, much more advanced systems can also be installed to get the most out of an intelligent home. Once the project is completed, it will surely be a force to reckon with in Kolkata real estate.
