Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9713186A1] A device (2) for installation in a building for the operation of appliances, utilities and services within the building, the device (2) being capable of connection to a plurality of communications media (represented by their means of receipt 21-25) via interface circuits (11-17), with microcontroller and associated circuitry (7) on a core platform (3) together with memory and associated software (30). The microcontroller (7), connected to a remote master microprocessor via the communications media, can act on information and instructions received from or via the master microprocessor, provided program protocols, already programmed into the software (30), are matched by protocols sent with the information and instructions. The device (2) is connected via appropriate interface circuitry to electrical and electronic circuitry in appliances within the building, which appliances can then be controlled either remotely or by a user input means (8).
