DCA Woonprojecten delivers homes and flats that are finished 'to the nth degree': real parquet flooring, high-quality kitchens and sanitary installations, high-level finishings, and much more. ‘We want to ensure our buyers get the best value for their money. In project construction, people often only look at budgets for kitchens and sanitary facilities, whereas we want to do more with high-level basic finishings and facilities," says Nicholas Haest, Head of DCA's Development & Construction Team. ‘Home automation is therefore also a logical choice for us. We want to bring the technological innovations, which can be seen in all sectors nowadays, into our residential projects as well. There are already many options on the market that greatly increase the comfort of your home, and new applications follow one another in rapid succession. At DCA, we don't want to miss the boat.’
In particular for flats, energy management will become even more important. ‘Flats have a smaller roof area per residential unit, so solar panels are not sufficient. At the same time, legislation is forcing us towards heat pumps, which inherently have higher consumption costs. By enabling energy management with Niko Home Control, we can still provide a solution. Smart socket outlets that allow you to read consumption and standby consumption are also a useful tool to reduce energy bills.’
We are looking forward to receiving feedback from customers and hearing what we could do differently as well as what we should do more of. With its 25 years of experience in home automation, Niko is in every way a reliable partner and we are now perfectly positioned to integrate technological innovation into all our projects.
