  • More security in everyday and dangerous situations
  • High system flexibility due to the client-server model
  • More convenience thanks to intelligent networking
  • Improved energy efficiency

 

 

With the Gira Interface, the user interface of the Gira HomeServer, controlling innovative home technology is child's play. The Gira Interface has already won several awards for its excellent user friendliness. The menu guidance has a clear design and intuitive functioning: Any function can be reached within only two levels. Additional information or operating elements are displayed directly in a pop-up window. This enables extremely convenient operation per touch screen – with a single finger.

In addition, all the devices which can be used for building control via the Gira HomeServer/FacilityServer feature a uniformly structured interface design. Therefore, users needn't adapt to new menu guidances again and again – regardless of whether on a Gira Control Client, PC, tablet, or smartphone. The user interface has been adapted to the individual screen sizes of the separate end devices for optimum usability. This allows complex scenarios to be controlled easily – anytime and anywhere.
