The smart house on wheels.
A caravan or motorhome is a temporary home. Obviously you wish the same technology that makes your life easier in your daily routine to be in place in this temporary home. Managing your entire RV with your smartphone – that is the idea of CiControl, which was developed by h&h product design in cooperation with Dr. Wolfram Schiffmann from the University of Hagen. An efficient, energy-saving microcontroller processes the input signals of all connected devices like batteries and air conditioners which you are then able to control with your Apple or Android device. Filling levels are displayed, you are automatically notified in case they fall below or above certain limits.
CiControl is not limited to usage whilst you are in the RV, it also offers remote access – including alarm control, camera monitoring up to presence simulation. Maximum security in your temporary home.
Years ahead: This project was a step into the future – and it took six years until the first operational control system was launched in series production.
