Smart home technologies

In the E-house at the IFA 2019, VDE, ZVEH and ZVEI will present a networked kitchen

The House of Smart Living shows the benefits and possibilities that a connected home has to offer. Whether it’s smart mirrors, innovative lighting technology, artificial intelligence or age-appropriate assistance systems, intelligent technologies make future living more convenient, secure and energy-efficient. All functions can be operated fully automatically via voice commands.

Furthermore, the 100-square meter model home exhibits numerous comfort elements such as lowerable kitchen cabinets, intelligent electrical fittings in the bathroom, window pane transparency control along with door communication, with which a video image is sent to mobile devices.

Soldering stations are available for all ages at the VDE, VZVEH and ZVEI joint booth so that you can create the perfect souvenir, a small, blinking version of the radio tower. People attach and weld whatever the thing can hold.

Whether you are a tech newbie or seasoned technology pro, children, adolescents and adults can get their money’s worth at our joint booth and be introduced to soldering work by technology students. While doing so, questions on possible desired courses of study can be answered and preconceptions can be debunked as well, because not only do we welcome boys and men but girls and women can also stop by our booth and complete the unique radio tower construction set. A special highlight this year: The LED mounted at the top of the radio tower is fitted with AR (Augmented Reality) glasses.

Energy efficiency is a trend word of the decade. Each device must meet appropriate energy efficiency ratings, and for many, the so-called Energy Efficiency Labels are mandatory. The aim is to further raise awareness of energy efficiency by means of a special parcours on this topic. The individual stages are located at the joint booth of VDE, ZVEH and ZVEI, at the booth of the VDE Institute as well as in the "House of Smart Living".

If you complete the parcours fully and correctly, you have the chance to win some great prizes. Come by and prove your skills in various tasks!
