Panasonic Smart TVs are an integral part of the digitalSTROM Smart Home System used at Future Living® Berlin. The TV and other devices in the apartment switch off when residents leave the apartment. While this is convenient for the tenant, it also saves energy and thereby reduces carbon emissions easily. Important notifications such as doorbells, severe weather warnings or fire alarms can also be output as a visual alert on the Panasonic TV – especially important for tenants with hearing disadvantages. Some of the functions are triggered automatically (lighting, smoke alarm in conjunction with speakers and TV) and some can be triggered via smart switches, voice control or the “apartment manager” software. The software offers an overview of the current state of the apartment, allows control of individual complex processes and shows alerts and warnings.
