Automation: Home intelligence
"Science is a medium to make man become an artist in a unique way."
– F. Nietzsche
Smart phones and tablets are now mainstream and with them we stream information in and out, and from device to device. Communication, content, entertainment, games, sharing, are all normal activities at the palm of everybody's hand. Yet home integrated automation of our lights, shades, TVs, HAVC, is not yet mainstream. It's still generally considered complex often leading to frustrated experiences.
Buttons, little colored lights, programming, menus, never ending manuals, another remote control with an infinite number of incomprehensible functions. Familiar?
At Ikatu we believe that for home automation well done, form should follow function. That home automation works well when the representation of its actions (the user interface) provides an expected and seamless real life outcome experience. In simple words, that the commands on how they are represented and what they do, match what is intuively expected from them.
Why not make life easier?
At Ikatu we only believe in technology if the outcome is an improved quality of life.
The control of light, Home Theater, heating, shades, irrigation or security is designed with the aim of keeping it simple and with a sense of aesthetics as the main goal.
Our home is our space in life and everything must work in the most natural way.
At Ikatu we use technology to become freer.
Come to Ikatu, bring your ideas and make them come true.
