Dukes Place, located in one of Hong Kong’s most sought-after districts, Jardine’s Lookout, is a first-class building project. The striking outer facade of curved glass rounded off with champagne-colored metallic lines, and the recurring Italian stone used in the construction makes the magnificent building stand out even in this metropolis of millions.
The project of the Chinese company Hong Kong Telecom offers its demanding customers an extraordinary living experience in 16 individual residential units ranging in size from 260m2 to 631.7m2, on a total area of 5574.2m2.
Special luxury and comfort can be experienced in the six two-story flats, whose high-quality furnishings are complemented by the smart home system from ubisys.
All invisible components installed behind light switches or in-wall or ceiling outlet connect via the gateway G1.
The G1 is the heart of the smart home system and the key factor for a smooth communication with the outside world. ubisys installed a total of 150 modules in each flat.
All devices can be controlled from any location using the ubisys Smart Home app. Accordingly, residents can also monitor all processes taking place at home from outside.
To guarantee perfect networking in the large area, radio-networked ubisys routers R0 have been integrated into the project, which transmit data (Zigbee) smoothly even over long distances.
A phenomenal view and light-flooded rooms are decisive advantages of the HKT Tower. In this case, the Shutter Control J1 ensures the desired privacy.
This component is used to control the installed blinds. In addition, fine adjustments, such as on the angles of the slats, can be made in the ubisys app.
Even without natural daylight, the multi-story residential units captivate with their special flair. The universal dimmer D1 is responsible for this because it bathes the high-quality elements of the flat in a unique light. To create the right mood for every occasion, scenes and groups containing device states can be pre-configured in the ubisys Smart Home app.
In the high-priced flats, the circuit breaker S2 is also installed several times. This allows residents to control up to two independent luminaire groups with just one switch.
Other smart devices can be added to the building control system using the installed control unit C4 .
Users have the option of integrating third-party devices into their smart home system, provided the products are Zigbee 3.0 certified. The flexibility of the ubisys system proved its worth even before project completion.
All modules are flush-mounted, so no extra cabling was required.
This means that these did not have to be considered during the construction phase and there was more scope for the individual living wishes of the demanding customers of the luxury construction.
Thanks to the possibility of retrofitting, every interest group could be considered equally, and the construction project could be realized to everyone’s satisfaction.
