Vimec ensures accessibility to Mexico City Underground
Through a joint effort with one of its dealers in Latin America, Vimec will be able to ensure accessibility for disabled people in 4 metro stations which belong to line 12 of Mexico City Underground.
With over twenty million people, Mexico City is one of the biggest cities in the world and the line 12 one of the most crowded lines of this Central American metropolis.
The installation of Vimec platforms will take place in the first half of 2012.
There are 84 days left until the start of the 2014 Olympics and Para Olympics in Sochi, and the preparation work for the participating athletes and around the Olympic village is intensifying.
As previously reported, Vimec is also engaged in this process, as it is reinforcing its commitment to ensuring accessibility and freedom of movement throughout Sochi with the installation of 370 Vimec systems.
In order to share our experience in the field with our partners, we are developing a dedicated website aimed at reinforcing our partnerships with our dealers around the world.
The project is currently in progress, and the website’s publication will be announced in the near future.
Vimec’s relationships with its dealers are based on a successful teamwork model, which the company intends to reinforce by encouraging the exchange of information and experiences.
Home is where we enjoy spending time with our family, and where we can be ourselves: independence, freedom, and comfort are essential for feeling at ease.
Vimec homelifts allow people to enjoy their homes to the fullest.
Let’s take a look at the advantages of choosing a Vimec homelift.
IT SIMPLIFIES YOUR DAILY LIFE
A Vimec homelift is an ideal solution for simplifying your daily life: it allows you to move freely about between the various floors of your home, overcoming small and large height gaps, providing access to the garage or garden, and transporting loads to the upper floors.
COMFORT AND VALUE
Installing a Vimec homelift increases the comfort and value of your home. Thanks to a wide range of available finishes and materials, the homelift can be customised and adapted to suit any environment, without altering your home’s original appearance.
EASY INSTALLATION AND MINIMAL POWER CONSUMPTION
Installation is quick and easy: each unit is made to measure, and connects to the home’s normal electrical system 220-230 V, with power consumption equal to that of a regular home appliance. The minimum hole depth and its reduced encumbrance dimensions are such as to minimise the structural interventions required upon the building.
For those who do not have interior space available, the homelift can even be installed outdoors, with a custom built support structure.
QUIET AND EASY TO USE
From a technological standpoint, Vimec homelifts make use of unparalleled solutions, are easy to use, and ensure maximum safety, quietness, and stability.
The technical term for Home Automation, “Domotics”, is derived from a combination of the Latin term “domus” (house) and the modern term “robotics”.
In addition to being a continuously evolving science, in everyday life home automation can be understood as a series of technologies designed to improve quality of life within the home.
Computers and electronics are brought together inside the house to automate and simplify the management of all the home’s systems.
Home Automation in everyday life
Home Automations are intended to make your home more convenient with an integrated automation system capable of offer highly advanced solutions in terms of comfort, security, multimedia services, and remote control possibilities.
The main obstacle to the spread of home automations is their cost, which remains high. More and more companies, however, are providing systems with various levels of functionality, so that the installations can be modified and implemented over time.
Find out the main benefits that home automations have to offer:
Electrical system automation: you can automate the management of your lights, either individually or in groups. You automate your blinds and shutters.
Sound diffusion and ambience: change the atmosphere to your liking, by having your favourite music start playing automatically accompanied by your preferred temperature and lighting.
Security: alarm and video surveillance systems allow people to leave their homes with complete peace of mind. Security systems also detect floods, gas leaks, and blackouts, and automatically reset the circuit breakers.
Remote management: in addition to controlling their various functions from the dedicated control units installed inside the home, the latest home automation systems can even be controlled remotely using a smartphone or tablet.
Home automation and energy savings
One of the most notable advantages of home automation is linked to the management of energy consumption and energy savings. The ways in which a home automation system can be beneficial to you and the environment are described below:
Consumption monitoring: thanks to the displays installed at the home, the user can always view up-to-date and aggregated data regarding their electricity, gas and water consumption. This allows them to take immediate action if any “bad” consumption habits are detected.
Electrical load management: the user can set a maximum electricity consumption level, and establish priorities for the use of appliances, so that the “less important” ones will be disconnected in the event of an overload: no more blackouts! This function is also useful for setting on/off times, in order to take full advantage of hourly consumption rates.
Temperature control: different temperatures can be set for the various rooms of the house, in order to prevent waste and optimise consumption. The ideal temperature, whenever and wherever you want!
Only the best for your home
When building a new home from scratch, or carrying out major renovations, it’s a good idea to consider installing a home automation system designed to meet your needs. Home Automation systems are designed to help you manage your home and enjoy maximum comfort within your home environment.
