Smart choices for a smart lifestyle
With smart technologies, you can automatically manage your home’s electrical devices and dramatically improve comfort, convenience, and safety. With network-connected devices, you can set up your home exactly to your preferences, whether it’s for energy-savings, increased security, or to provide a warm welcomeas soon as you step through the door.
One of the most trusted names in automation products and architectural lighting systems, HDL has beenproviding solutions for modern residences and commercial buildings worldwide since 1985. Thanks to HDL’s experience in over 90 countries, its intuitive framework is highly regarded for its ability to integrate and connect disparate systems and technology, with flexible solutions for residential spaces, commercial buildings, and hotels. HDL’s clients include the Dubai International Airport, NATO Headquarters in Belgium, and BMW Welt in Munich.
Let your home take care of you
As HDL’s sole distributor in the Philippines, Digicom Controls and Automation Inc. (DCAi) is a member of DIGICOM Group, which has been providing advanced solutions for Information and Communication Technology for 37 years.
DCAI was founded four years ago to fill a gap in aftersales services for homeowners. We offer excellent training and a dealer’s network to provide superior customer support with local expertise. Often, smart automation manufacturers are only organized around Western -style systems such as centralized airconditioning. In contrast, HDL’s versatile system allows support for local set- ups, including both centralized andsplit-type air conditioning systems.
No matter the device, homeowners can have the system programmed to manage it according to individual, room-specific situations: for example, in the mornings, air conditioning in one room can be switched off, electric fans turned on, and motorized curtains opened to let in sunlight.
Any home can be automated
Full automation means homeowners have less to worry about with individualized security measures, comfort,and convenience. With both wired and wireless HDL Buspro systems, HDL lets you check whether devices are on even when you’re at work or on vacation. Using your iPhone or Android app, you can turn on lights and air conditioning or close thecurtains even as you’re on your way home from work.
HDL’s remote management system also provides added security features. Aside from an alarm system that integrates lights and sounds, HDL’s automation solution allows you to use your mobile app to turn devices onto create the impression of being at home, even if you’re away.
On top of these benefits, the management and regulation of electrical devices and appliances also provide significant energy savings, on average reducing energy expenditure by at least 30%.
A home is an investment in the future
Aside from the mobile app, homeowners can also monitor their home with HDL’s touch screen panels. With HDL’s streamlined technology, homeowners need only one TFT wall panel to keep track of all devices and provide real-time status or readings(feedback). Available in EU and US sizing, the panel can be fully customized to blend inwith the interior design, and homeowners can also use invidualized icons to help them manage the different programs. HDL’s system also integrates seamlessly with voice-activated tech- nology such as Alexa, GoogleHome, or Siri, allowing you to control the entire system with voice commands.
Top of the range and affordable, our HDL intelligent panels maximizes style and function in every design and architecture project. Our trained HDL dealers will be happy to show you how HDL can benefit you.
