Developments and innovations
Simnet has recently begun to increase its presence in the rapidly-expanding field of construction and building automation. Its product, Simetis, was developed as a result of demand from different partners in the construction industry and is designed to monitor and control energy use within a building. It offers all the advanced functions of a sophisticated home automation controller, and contains a solution that is flexible enough to accommodate specific developments tailored to each market. This multi-protocol solution can interface with almost all known technical installations on the market (heating, ventilation, etc.).
Simnet is also working in conjunction with the CREM (Centre de Recherches Energétiques Municipales), the urban energy systems research centre at Martigny, and the Idiap Research Institute to improve the efficiency of a heating regulation system. In general, it welcomes opportunities to build relationships with partners so that new products can be developed to meet clients' needs.
