Qbus seeks to make buildings smart. Qbus products are installed in smart buildings to guarantee the seamless connection of the lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, screens, audio, alarm and other existing technologies. This ensures effortless communication and interaction between the inhabitant, owner or user.
As a user you are free to decide how sophisticated your system should be and what your priorities are. The purpose of all this is to offer a building’s inhabitant or user more comfort and peace of mind, while reducing energy consumption.
“As a building automation controls and systems manufacturer, we owe it to ourselves to constantly develop future-oriented products while retaining compatibility with our existing installations. "
Tom Vanden Bussche, CEO Qbus
A Qbus installation allows you more control over what happens in your home or building: from lighting and heating to shutters and televisions, everything is easy to control based on a central system. For example, it is always pleasantly warm when you get back home, but the heating is not working overtime unnecessarily when you are away. Security is also an important reason for home automation’s increasing popularity. For example, the integrated presence simulation facility ensures your home does not appear to be empty when you are off on holiday.
A Qbus smart home also helps elderly people to live
independently at home for longer. The stove, for example, can be automatically disabled if no movement is detected in the kitchen for a long period. Your smart home will also send out an alarm if no activity is detected in the dwelling for an unusually long period in the morning even though somebody was at home.
In houses, we save on average 19% on heating and 13% on electricity. In commercial buildings, the savings amount to 60% and 30% respectively. With Qbus you can work in more energy efficient ways:
All Qbus modules are Highly Accelerated Life Tested (HALT). This “stress test” puts Qbus modules through their paces in circumstances (high and low temperatures, vibration, current differences,…) that are much more extreme than those in which the products will be deployed. The outcome is a longer lifespan and a better quality for
the tested products.
Since its inception in 1999, Qbus has already transformed over 13,000 homes and buildings into smart buildings. All the Qbus products and services are developed in the company’s headquarters in Erpe-Mere in Belgium. Qbus offices in the United Arab Emirates, Sri Lanka, India and Singapore offer technical and sales support in these regions. Qbus has partnered with dealers in more than 10 European countries.
