A few days ago I was invited to Milan in the Living room, Now Apartment to discover the
new series Living Now signed BTicino
I was immediately enthusiastic, the BTicino is one of the leading companies in the production of plaques, and it is precisely that two years ago I chose for my new office.
The new series has been designed for every type of space, to be used both in traditional systems and those smart connected. I, which are technologically denied, I discovered that, if I wanted to make my office more comfortable with a system of smart Living Now, I would only need to simply install into my traditional system of intelligent devices, designed to be able to dialogue between them and connect via radio to the Gateway, the heart of the system, that makes possible the connection with the Wi-Fi.
The new series handles the 3 main functions of an electrical installation: power, lights and roller shutters.
How? With the traditional controls, using a smartphone or with voice commands.
THE TRADITIONAL CONTROLS
The new plates Living Now I have conquered, have a planar surface and a perfect alignment between the various elements, synthesis of elegance and functionality. The switch to full touch becomes a real command interface.
Scenarios day/night or the entrance/exit will help you to control the different functions at the same time. The scenario output, for example, allows you to turn off the lights, turn off the TV and lower the blinds with a click. And if I want to leave a single light on when Nina stays at home? No problem, the system is customizable according to my needs.
Speaking of needs, I often work in Puglia lamie and trulli never have a planar surface, the hole that you can see behind the plate is pretty annoying for a fussy as me. The new plaque Living Now has a frame, floating, free to move on the 4 corners, designed to be always adherent to the wall, even on uneven walls.
INTERACTION VIA SMARTPHONE
With your mobile phone, you can easily check it via anapp dedicated to the entire electrical system of the house, even when you are out. It’s been really enlightening for me to realise, as with my smartphone may be fast out of the house, checking from the outside that you have not left lights on, or, vice versa, igniting a as a simulator of presence when I have for a long time.
THE VOICE CONTROL
The voice control is possible using the most common screen readers: Apple’s Homekit and Google Home Alexa and Amazon.

And now we come to us, to all of this technology has been associated with a study of theaesthetic appearance of the plate equally amazing? Yes, definitely. How functional the new plates Living Now I have already spoken, now we speak of colors and materials.
The covers are available in 3 different colors: white, sand and black. The surface is satin finished.
The plates have 16 finishes made with different materials: the polymer has evolved, which ensures color stability over time and resistance to abrasion, the metal and two wood finishes of oak and walnut.
My favorite? Metal ones, and those polymeric opaque, give a beautiful feel to the touch.
But the aspect that has me excited is that Living Now allows you to add or move the various points of light without resorting to masonry. You can have the sticker adhesive where it will be useful, the rest will take care of the connected system. I immediately thought of the bedroom of Tea, who has 3 years and who knows how many times it will change the layout, with Living Now can move the switches as often as you like. And this will simplify a bit the life we technical that we fear always the project and the realization of the electrical system imagined before the house is actually lived.
I wonder if I could tell you all, I hope I have helped to break a taboo about the difficulty of dealing with the technological aspect of a home smart. I have realized that it is all really much more simple than I imagined. Appearance so many questions and I remind you that Living in the Nw is made by BTicino entirely in Italy, is an aspect that I always like to emphasize when I choose a company for my projects.
