Intelligent home at imm cologne 2018
What does a functioning smart home look like today? What does it offer in terms of security, convenience, cost savings and added value? Answers to these questions can be found at the Smart Home at imm cologne 2018: in the form of a real house that is open for visitors to enter and explore.
The forum for connected living at the international interiors show imm cologne not only examines the current state of the art in applied technologies for the home. It also looks ahead to future issues such as smart home solutions for accessible living. Koelnmesse sees the smart home as the next big thing. The trade fair organiser is emphasising the importance of this emerging field that has been heralded as a growth market by presenting the third Smart Home installation at imm cologne 2018. “It will increasingly be a matter of course for different devices to be connected to, and communicate with, each other. The technological infrastructure is becoming more and more personally tailored to residents’ needs,” says Gerald Böse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Koelnmesse.
Taking “Let’s be smart” as its slogan, imm cologne will showcase products, projects and real-time scenarios related to energy, security, lifestyle, convenience and entertainment. The spectrum covered by the smart home is constantly expanding and becoming more and more complex. We will present the smart home’s current possibilities in a fully functional architect’s house alongside an architect’s smart office and a self-contained flat with a supportive environment provided by assisted living technologies, which allow the older generation to remain in their own homes until a very old age. But we’re also looking ahead to the future,” says Thomas Postert, Director at Koelnmesse.
