Lighting in full control with motorcycle racing legend

Lighting in full control with motorcyle racing legend

Isle of Man TT Legend Ian Hutchinson chooses Hager’s innovative building automation system, domovea, to help bring as much control and performance to his home as his Tyco BMW delivers on track.

Ian Hutchison is a professional motorcycle road racer who has won the famous Isle of Man TT on numerous occasions over the past decade, including being the only rider to ever win five Isle of Man TT Races in one week in 2010.

When carrying out renovation works to his home, Ian was looking for an intelligent way to control lighting in different rooms and create lighting levels to suit from his phone.

After a visit from Matt Price, Hager’s Technical Support Engineer, he decided to install domovea to provide full control of the lighting in his home.

Domovea is part of Hager’s innovative building automation range. Divided into two key elements; consisting of a server which connects the KNX bus system onto an IP network, which is then supported by domovea visualisation software and is available across multiple operating systems, including iOS, Android and PC.

A key benefit of domovea is the ability to access and control the system through various operating systems via a smartphone, with the lighting and different controls in the home able to be accessed remotely.

Providing the style to control the home, Hager’s range of Berker scene plates was also installed. Part of our B.IQ range, the B.IQ switches offers up to four functional elements – temperature controller, information display, tactile sensor and timer in a single control unit.

Matt Price commented on how domovea was perfect for the motorcycle champions’ home renovation: “I’m delighted that Ian chose our building automation solution, domovea, to be part of his home. When discussing his home improvements, the key benefit with domovea was that Ian will be able to manage his home on the go. So whether he is heading out for race day or coming back after another win, he can set his home ready for the occasion.”

Completed within two days, Ian Hutchinson was impressed with the benefits domovea has brought to his home “I wanted something to control my house that was easy to use and I could operate from anywhere in the world. Domovea gives me this, it’s easy to use, future proof and the KNX system means that I can add additional functions to control my home as and when I install them. It really does give me total control.”
