The new Living Now civil line by BTicino, recently presented, is able to transform every system into a “smart system” without changing the wiring and installation methods.
Living Now is installed on the standard boxes available on the market, and this is – in our opinion – its main strength; therefore, it’s not a roaring revolution, but rather silent, even more potentially effective, because it does not require a radical change in habits and technologies, and at the same time offers a clear improvement in the quality of the implants, revolutionizing the relationship between plate and function.
IoT solutions for the home are more and more widespread, and the new Living Now line fits precisely into this logic: in fact, it is designed to easily adapt to any domestic environment, and can be used in both traditional and connected systems.
The particularly elegant and innovative design offers many installation possibilities, while the traditional infrastructure allows it to be used in all circumstances. Of course, the ultimate goal is to offer innovative and interesting user experiences, with integrated and simple management of all the main functions of the electrical system: lights, shutters, energy (even remotely) via smartphone through the Home + Control App, or, another very interesting news, through voice commands.
The Living Now line, created by BTicino in collaboration with Netatmo, a company specializing in IoT solutions for the home, is also able to interface with the most popular smart speakers.
As for design, as we said, Living Now is quite revolutionary: the distinctive graphic sign is the vertical lines, and the basic idea is to equip the control plate with a single surface with increased space for functions. A patented lever system ensures constant alignment of the keys, while the “floating” plate remedies any irregularities of the wall on which it is installed. In addition to the three available covers (white, sand and black), you can also choose 16 different finishes, made of advanced polymer, metal or wood.
“Living Now” – said Franco Villani, Managing Director of BTicino – “is for us the most important launch of the last fifteen years, an Italian excellence that, supported by the Group’s advanced electronic technologies, has allowed BTicino to reinvent the command of the home and redefine the industry benchmarks, as done previously with the Living series.”
