With the new millennium technological evolution involved the domestic space too: the traditional electrical installation has become the nervous system that lets different appliances communicate with each other. It is the beginning of home automation systems.
The housing styles become more refined too. In 2000 the Plana residential series was launched, simple, essential, immediate interfaces. In 2005 there followed the new top of the range series, Eikon, that marked a new housing style.
Inhouse research led to an original home automation system, but open to the Konnex standard, the most widespread one in the world. By-me is its name, to underline proximity to the user: since 2005 it is the heart of home automation of all the residential series.
Driving the process of fast transformation is the new management centre of Marostica that coordinates the sales network, the Italian production unit and the production and assembly plants spread all over the world. A development that sets Vimar among Italy’s leaders, able to compete on international markets.
