Ekinex products have been integrated, equipment and finishes have been chosen with special features, to give priority to the functionality needed by the disabled user.
In these cases it is necessary that the structures with which the user comes into contact must be able to interact in order to allow a good degree of autonomy for the user. Ekinex was chosen for its wall and panel products for the following reasons:
- The EK-EB2-TP push buttons, on which strength tests have been carried out, has been selected because their configuration with large rockers makes them easy to press and use; the side LEDs used as night courtesy light have also been considered useful.
- The EK-E72-TP-R thermostats which, in addition to the regulation of heating and cooling in the individual zones, are easily visible for their back-lighting and the size of the numeric characters.
- The actuators EK- FF1-TP and EK-FE1-TP control the various automations (elevator, door/window opening)
The ekinex system has also been integrated with a supervision and control system designed and built in such a way that the user with disabilities can interface to any system from a fixed location via web interface on a PC or from a tablet connected directly to the electric wheelchair.
The system has been installed and programmed by our partner NEXTWORKS of Pisa;
This application won the candidacy and the subsequent prize as Best Project – Social Category during the KNX Day of the 10thNovember 2017, organized by the association KNX Italia.
