Hager Group demonstrates solutions for the home of the future

Hager Group was present for the first time at the WohnZukunftsTag in the Berlin Tempodrom organised by the GdW, Federal Association of German Housing and Real Estate Companies' in Berlin. On 21st June 2018, during the conference for specialists, our Hager Group colleagues presented innovative solutions to facilitate the planning of as well as life in the home of the future.

300 visitors participated in the numerous lectures and panel discussions which were held under the theme of Digi-All. The central discussion themes were: What form will construction take in the future and how will the associated solutions offered change?

In our two exhibition stands, our experts answered these two questions clearly and trade show visitors saw real examples of what is currently possible and what will be possible in the future for residential, industrial and commercial properties.

Norbert Röhl and Ursula Keller from the German Market Area, present at the event, along with other colleagues welcomed around 50 visitors at our booth. All colleagues present were happy with the very positive feedback from visitors. They both commented that there were positive exchanges about current solutions and questions about future fields we are developing. On the first floor of our stand, an intelligent living environment was created using our latest technologies and solutions where visitors were able to control the area manually using voice control and smartphones. Visitors saw first-hand the increased comfort, safety and energy efficiency benefits Hager solutions can offer. 

Together with the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), we presented new possible solutions and support options for the housing sector. In a virtual reality (VR) promotional area, representatives from the housing industry and property companies were able to see that the positioning of technical requirements can be visualised even before completion. Team members also used the HoloLens to demonstrate how it will be possible to access consumption and operating data immediately in the future. The HoloLens makes it possible to customise the positioning of light switches and sockets in a room during the sampling process.  

Johannes Hauck from Hager Group Corporate Strategy, Innovation & Business Development explained that, “the WohnZukunftsTag was an ideal opportunity for us to present innovative ideas for the housing industry. In doing so, we dealt with the question of what forms construction and housing will take in the near future, and how they could develop beyond that.”
