Two button and control versions: the natural elegance of anthracite grey and the luminous soberness of white. Arké can be dressed in the colours that best suit your home, with no limits to the possible combinations, for an integral or two-tone look.
A principle that is changing our lifestyles. This is why we choose objects that help us to optimise our time and our energies. Like Arké: reliable and precise, with functions and controls that make our everyday gestures easier.
Switch on a light, open a door, lower a shutter: everyday actions that Arké makes more pleasant and immediate. Thanks to the precision of its axial controls; the clarity of the night&day symbols that indicate the various functions, the LED backlighting. Different types of controls for practical management, like the infrared remote control.
High-efficiency light sources, optimised for different uses: so lighting gets where it needs to be, with no waste. Automatic modular lights, step markers, warning lights and removable emergency lamps that light up in the event of a black out. Every device uses latest-generation LED specular transparent diffusers. For a truly brilliant performance.
A precise, silent technology that watches over you and your home, day and night: detectors block and report gas leaks; intrusion alarms warn of any attempt to break in; interlocked sockets protect from accidental contacts, in the bathroom and the kitchen, and anywhere electrical devices are used frequently.
Top comfort and energy savings: this is possible, with Arké. Universal dimmers adjust the intensity of LED and low consumption (CFL) lights to create the perfect atmosphere. Timer-thermostats and timer-switches are used to automatically or manually set the ideal temperature and other functions, to avoid waste. And the radio-frequency, wireless and battery-free technology allows the system to be extended with no brick work, adding new lighting devices where you need.
With music from the radio, your mp3, iPod or iPhone, diversified or the same in every room, to suit how you feel at the time. But also with a wide range of audio, video and USB inputs, allowing you to transmit the extraordinary multimedia performances of your home entertainment system in every room.
Guests are welcomed elegantly by a modern video door entry system. The device lets you see who’s outside the house on its colour display with its touch controls and clear, intuitive graphics.
We prefer technologies that reduce consumption. Arké, with the By-me home automation system, prevents energy waste and makes it easier, quicker and safer to manage all the rooms in the home.
Intelligent management of the whole home, centrally controlled thanks to a single touch screen, either locally according to your needs or remotely through the Internet.
Coordinated functions create relaxing scenarios: lighting, climate, sound system are all managed easily and in a customised manner.
Technical and intrusion alarms: with By-me, everything is under control and serenity spreads throughout the home.
Functions that allow you to monitor consumption in real time and have a precise picture of the energy profile of your home.
The whole home is centrally controlled thanks to a single touch screen with simple and intuitive interfaces, either locally according to your needs or remotely through the Internet via PC, mobile phone, smartphone and latest-generation tablets. Managing lighting and sound systems, handling curtains or roller shutters, adjusting the intensity of various lamps, or creating colourful lighting effects. All this also through pre-set scenarios according to your needs.
Thermostats that adjust the temperature to actual everyday needs; devices that control electrical loads, monitor consumption and display produced energy. Rationally managing all the energy in your home because Arké is also energy awareness.
Excellent technology that silently protects people and their home at any time. Various types of intrusion alarms, detectors to report and block any gas leaks or flooding, video door entry systems, and the option to control entry.
EnOcean, Bluetooth and ZigBee radio frequency wireless controls make it possible to extend the system to all those areas subjected to architectural restrictions or where masonry work is not an option.
Practicality, freedom of wireless installation and versatility. Suitable for all surfaces (such as wood, glass, masonry, etc.), wireless devices offer the practicality of controls without batteries, thereby respecting the environment while also achieving energy savings.
