THE TABLET THAT GIVES CONTROL

The most important part of the research programme consists of the homes in the Active Building. And you control your home with the aid of Tingco. It’s a tablet that displays exactly how much energy is being used and that helps you control your home. For example, you can ensure that the lights are switched off and the temperature is reduced when there’s no-one at home. Or that the car is charged and the laundry is washed at times when electricity is cleanest and cheapest.

Do your laundry when it suits you and the environment

If you click on the washing machine symbol on the home page you will be directed here. Here you can choose when you want your laundry to be finished, so Tingco makes sure to wash at times when it’s cheapest or most environmentally-friendly, depending on whether you belong to the group with the price curve or the environmental curve. A similar interface is available for your dryer.

Your building is a solar power plant

All the active buildings in Norra Djurgårdsstaden are equipped with solar cells. If you click on the solar panel symbol, you can see how much solar energy your building is producing right now.

How much electricity does the computer consume?

There are two smart plugs for electrical sockets in your apartment. They enable you to see how much electricity is being consumed by the devices you have plugged in. You can also turn them on or off using Tingco.

Optimise charging the car

Here you can choose when your car will be fully charged. Tingco makes sure it’s charged at the lowest electricity price or with the lowest environmental impact.

How clean is your energy use?

When you click on the leaf, you’ll be directed to a diagram that shows the environmental impact of your electricity consumption right now. You can also scroll down to see what it was yesterday and what it will be tomorrow.

Monitor the energy peaks

The diagrams show how your energy use evolves over time. You can choose the period and scroll down. The same type of diagram is available for electricity, hot water and heating.

Cool in the bedroom, warmer in the kitchen?

When you click on the temperature symbol, you’ll be directed here. Here you can set the temperature you want in each room.

How much are you saving?

When you click on the money box, you’ll be directed to a diagram that shows the price of electricity, hour by hour. You can also scroll down to see what it was yesterday and what it will be tomorrow.

Smart Lighting

On the lighting page, you can set your dimmers for ceiling lighting. You can also give each dimmer any name you want.

Easy not to waste energy

In the middle of the home page, you’ll find the buttons named Eco Away, Home and Away. If you select Eco Away, Tingco makes sure to turn off your ceiling lights and reduce the thermostat temperature by 3 degrees when you’re not at home. If you select Away, it just turns the lights off. When you come home, click Home and everything will be as it was before you left.

One click and then you have full control

Each screenshot has an i-symbol. When you click on it, a window opens and displays all the information on the display on your tablet right now. You set the language, Swedish or English, on the first page.

Mobile app

All residents who have Tingco via the tabletop also have the option to download an associated mobile app. Via the app you can control your lamps, thermostats and smart plugs, as well as get an overall view of their consumption. You can also activate home / away mode and via the dots at the bottom, get contact information to customer service.
