The protection of the Environment and energy saving are two issues of utmost importance not one truly global scale. The increasing energy consumption produces adverse effects on the environment, resulting in the ozone layer destruction, glaciers thawing the poor quality of the air we breathe and general pollution and destruction of most of our natural resources. Moreover, Smart Energy, Home Automation& Control and Telecommunications are steadily moving towards a common denominator: the ever increasing technical infrastructure composed by a myriad of electric and electronic devices at home.


The UCH and URC help to integrate multiple devices and services seamlessly, making it possible to control them also from the energy consumption perspective, providing adapted, personalized User Interfaces for this purpose. The integration and control of multiple house devices and the user interface can help to control the amount of energy consumed at a home (also infrastructures used for professional and business purposes) and provide additional added values to its residents.
