Technologies

We are constantly innovating and researching new materials and technologies. We invest heavily in R&D to ensure our products are as efficient, and optimised as possible: if something can be done faster, cheaper or better through the use of technology then you can bet we’re already looking into it. We particularly focus on technologies that reduce costs of fabrication or operation, or have long term benefits to the environment or the occupants.

Intelligent Connectivity

Smarter Buildings mean less energy, less maintenance and lower operational cost.

   
WHAT IS the “Internet of Things” and how does Monitac use it?

Simply put, the Internet of things or “IoT” is the internetworking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items, embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data. We then use this data to ensure uptime, make better decisions and ultimately save you money. The result is a smarter, more energy efficient and cost effective building.



Automation & Monitoring

Avario adds intelligence to buildings, powering down equipment like TVs and AC units when a room is unoccupied, or pass alerts to a central control facility if excess water or power draws are detected – which could be an indication of a leak, electrical problem or use of unauthorised cooking in a dormitory room.

We often install computer controlled, dimmable lights in our projects to enhance the space. These provide the user full control over the brightness of each of the lights in a room, and can be controlled through a smartphone or even linked to events such as a door opening, a film being paused or the sun setting, or to simulate the morning dawn to coincide with your alarm. These unobtrusive systems provide a more comfortable and enjoyable living or working space and reduce energy consumption.

We can develop custom solutions to meet any specific requirements you may have, or modify our existing products to suit your project. For more information on Avario, please visit www.avar.io.

 


Entertainment

Avario has the ability to connect multiple HD TVs to a central media management hub that can serve up live or recorded TV, Movies and online content to every room in a home, camp or hotel. The user browses through available content on their TV screen, wall control panel or smartphone using a rich interface that shows movie posters, trailers, ratings and plot outlines. The system can be integrated with our automation system enabling the user to control their lights, curtains and thermostat through the same on-screen interface, or to respond to events such as dimming the lights, closing blinds and turning the TV on when a movie is played.

Green Technologies

  • Photovoltaic panels: for electrical energy
  • Solar water heaters: free hot water from the sun!
  • Highly efficient wall/ceiling insulation options
  • Low-E glass: reduce unwanted heat gain through windows
  • Heat reflective paint: reduce unwanted heat gain through walls and roof
  • Efficient AC design: appropriate specification, sizing and location of AC
  • Automatic blinds: block solar heat gain when unoccupied, and simulate morning sun rise
  • LED lighting: more natural colour balance and lower energy consumption compared to incandescent or florescent bulbs
  • Dimmable light controls: allow setting of lighting to required levels, saving energy and improving comfort
  • Green roof: insulation reduces heating/cooling loads. Improves local environment and provides great communal area
  • Waste water treatment: recycle wastewater for irrigation and reduce operational costs of sewage disposal
