Tabluka is a UK based company that sells configurable and customisable furniture and other home accessories that can be designed and personalize to the customersown tasteover the web.

Tabluka Creative Director Daniel Knox says that The Tabluka concept is different in many ways. Different because it uses the latest digital design technologies. Different because it uses modern, stylish materials. Different because it puts you in control.

He says that Tabluka has been developed out of understanding consumer needs and thegowing desire forpersonalised, long lasting and sustainably sourced furniture.

Tabluka furniture is assembled by slotting together the flat packed pieces without the need for any screws, nails or tools – therefore no need for DIY experience. Anyone who watched The Apprentice and the flat pack furniture challenge, will understand the appeal of this when it is done well.

As a team we are always looking forcool new ways of using DriveWorks technology and a few months ago when Maria moved to her new house, Rob, Glen and Philip embarked on a very different but exciting project…. a Home Automation project.

The new house didn’t have any form of heating installed when Maria bought it and as a person who cares about the environment and loves technology, Maria wanted to explore what options might be available for a solution that combined the two.

The ability to regulate for efficiency and automate what goes on in the house were important priorities. The result? A home automation system that monitors and controls the temperature settings in EVERY room of the house individually. And alldriven by DriveWorks from anywhere in the world.

So how exactly does this home automation system work with DriveWorks?

Solar Panels have been installed on the garage roof, wireless temperature sensors placed in every room (and one outside) providing realtime logging to a databasemonitored byDriveWorks. Through rules-based automation, DriveWorks then reads these values and displays them. Then, depending on what the user has set the ideal temperature to be at for a particular room, an electrical heater will remain off, or turn on to bring the room up to the required temperature.

Groups

Simple.adRooms can be grouped together using the Group Admin button, e.g. placing all reception rooms, or all bedrooms in a group togetherto be set to the same temperature. The optimum temperature can be varied throughout the day, and for different times of the week.

This particular example has simple controls; changing settings for the week and weekend, or advanced controls giving the ability to change settings for each day.

 

 

Of course, if Maria wants it to be warmer or colder than the set temperatures, its really easy to make changes.
Using DriveWorks Live Maria can even access the Home Automation Control Panel from anywhere in the world and onany device, eg iPhone, iPad, Android etc.
Diff places

So she could be at an airport getting ready to fly home from an international Reseller visit, holiday in Greece or just the DriveWorks office and want to be sure that the her house is the right temperature when she gets back. All she needs to do is just logon to the home automation system and adjust to the ideal temperature, what a perfect welcome home!

Her sons are pretty impressed with it too as they can set the heatingin their rooms ahead of time if they decide to come home from university for the weekend!

As DriveWorks is a rules based system, it is easy to see other inventive uses of DriveWorks within the house (e.g. lights, electrical equipment) and beyond.
