Prestige Living company designs and builds intelligent residential and professional projects. Carlo Abbondati, Project Manager, tells us about his experience with Dovit during the design of the HPA Garda Lake project in Italy and about future projects!

“Our client wanted to create 60 extra-luxury penthouses that went beyond the classic schemes proposed for Italian residences. The idea was to “sell” homes of great visual effect with breathtaking views, while offering “5-star hotel services”, all managed through high-level systems able to control every service of the individual apartments and the entire park of 12,000 sqm.”

A platform that was extremely open to all possible integrations of the various technological subsystems required (lighting, thermoregulation, automatisms, video door entry systems, air conditioning, audio / video, security, video analysis, license plate reading, biometric reader, consumption control, swimming pool control, etc.) was required that would allow the at the same time to offer the integrated management of the internal services offered by the structure (booking golf, tennis, swimming pool, cleaning, massages, food & drinks, aesthetics, electric vehicles, local events, etc ..), all through an advanced multilingual system that allowed to switch the interface in 6 different languages, including Russian.

The Dovit platform (previously Hi.System) was considered the only alternative to the American systems, which are very complex and expensive, to provide a quick, effective and economical response to the client. After the construction of the first sample apartment in just 30 days, the results in terms of commercial emotion of the appointments with customers (what the client was asking for was a “WOW effect”) both in terms of sales began to arrive immediately and investors from all over the world have begun to buy the different solutions proposed by HPA.

In 2021 we start with the new HPA 2.0 project which involves the construction of the second building B and the introduction of the latest DOVIT system, with all the new services offered and the addition of new dedicated custom integrations, to try to overcome the results obtained in the previous building A in terms of flexibility of control and customization by users.”
