are people centered,
Our buildings need to be smart in order to energize people. At Kindow we strongly believe that buildings are truly smart when they establish a human centric environment, maximizing health and productivity while minimizing the running costs. It should not be about technical features and apps, but about intelligent automation facilitating the people, their health and comfort, without them having to worry about it.
At Kindow, we focus efforts on optimizing daylight optimization, but we are aware that daylight is only one of many parameters involved in optimizing indoor climate. True impact is realized in the combination and integration of smart climate control systems also optimizing air quality, temperature, acoustics, etcetera. Therefore lots of our current efforts go into the integration of our solutions with building management systems, smart building platforms and other smart building applications. In that sense, Kindow truly believes in partnerships, and is always open to new opportunities and collaborations, please contact us!
Our products consist of both a physical and an intelligence component that we both create in our workshop/office. Through developing hardware and embedded software in-house we are able to offer a stand-alone automated daylight optimization system.
Our systems can be installed as a stand alone solution, optimizing daylight with our basic control, switches and sensors. We are now working on a cloud-based solution: linking Kindow systems to the cloud will enable ‘premium control’, a more refined control on the basis of weather data and forecasting.
Knowledge & Research
Since Kindow was founded we have worked closely together with the Building Energy Performance group of The TU Eindhoven. They base their research on advanced computational building simulation models to quantify the impact of intelligent sun and daylight control systems on the quality of the indoor climate and on energy performance.
