In Uppsala you can find 34 super modern apartments located in the newly built Tiunda Park. It’s an area especially designed to become Europe’s smartest and most connected multi-family house area. Law student Lisa Pålsson from Skåne has just unpacked her boxes in her new apartment, that is equipped with a range of Smart Home solutions that she can easily control from her phone and Tmpl app. Tiunda Park is centrally located in a quiet area in the heart of Uppsala’s student district. On the outside, it is a tasteful and modern two-storey multi-family house, but the most exciting part is actually inside. The 34 newly built apartments in Tiunda Park have already on the drawing board been featured with a set of digital Smart Home solutions to make the accommodation as safe, durable and comfortable as possible.
– I’ve always cared a lot about environmental issues, and for me as a student, with a limited economy, it feels good to keep my electricity bills down, says Lisa Pålsson. It’s also nice to be able to have the cosy lightning ready in advance when my boyfriend from Skåne comes to visit.
Lisa’s new apartment is also equipped with a smart lock that can be controlled remotely, which can be used to let craftsmen or temporary guests into the apartment when she is not home. When she activates the “away” mode, motion detectors and magnets in the patio door will activate and signal if there is any movement around the apartment. Lights can be turned on and off to make it look like someone is home. There are sensors for detecting fire or water leakage, and signals are sent directly to the homeowner, the service company and the fire department. The system also reports the consumption of electricity and water, which is brilliant for those who want to think environmentally friendly. The more social part of the Tmpl app is the possibility to keep in touch with neighbours, both for pleasure and practical reasons.
– As recently moved in, there is always a lot of stuff that you don’t have and it’s easier to borrow things from a neighbour than to go out and buy it. That also helps you to get to know each other, and it creates security, says Lisa Pålsson. Maybe the angry message on the notice board is now history, when there is a better channel for communication with one’s neighbours.
Lisa Pålsson explains how she used Tmpl to tell her neighbours about her moving in party.
