Frequently asked questions

Get all the answers to the questions you may have about our IoT solution.

On average, you will save between 20 and 30% on your energy bill. And you will start saving right after setting up Smart & Connective! For a more precise projection, we can use our widget, able to measure your savings according to the automated correctives measures.

The corrective measures are instantly active once you set up Smart & Connective. Which means that you start saving energy instantly as well.

Most of automated solutions guarantee a return on investment of at least 24 to 48 months, whereas Smart & Connective guarantees a return on investment in only 12 to 18 months.

We need no more than 60 minutes to set up Smart & Connective in one room. The overall set up will hence depend on how many technicians your integrator will send.

The integrator who will set up your solution must be trained by Smart & Connective. However, if your electrician wishes to undergo our one-day training, he will then be certified and allowed to set up our solution.

The set up itself can be done even if your wifi is not working properly. Likewise, once set up, your solution saves everything on the Cloud, allowing you to have access to your data even offline. Also, CEOS, the heart of the system, is able to store your data for 3 weeks and synchronize them when connection is restored. This means that your corrective measures will keep on going even if you are offline.

The European Commission for Innovation, in partnership with the Zigbee Alliance, guarantees that Radio technology (used by Smart & Connective) is effective AND perfectly suitable for medical environments. This technology is even acknowledged by NASA scientists for its reliability.

Furthermore, using Radio technology in a medical environment is very strictly controlled to avoid interferences. In order to meet the EN60601-1-1-1-2 standard, the electromagnetic fields must be: 3V/m between 80 and 800 megahertz. Smart and connective solution is only 0.5V/m, which is far below the recommendations. 

We can hence guarantee that there will be no interferences with any medical equipment, or any other equipment.

In our Smart & Connective solution, there are no waves emitted continuously. Our devices only emit when they need to communicate a new corrective measure or controle the system. Furthermore, waves are harmful depending on their power, in milliwatts. Smart & Connective never emits waves beyond 2mW when a cellphone emits around 125mW and 100mW if it’s a smartphone or a connected tablet.

Smart & Connective is compatible with more than 6,000 references. But if you want to be 100% sure, don’t hesitate to ask us!

Our network is protected and all the data are encrypted. Furthermore, there is no communication between our network and your network. Hence your data are partitioned and safe.

Using a mesh network allows us to have theoretically no limit. However, we usually talk about a range of a few hundred meters.

In case of a technical problem, you can call your integrator who will be able (most of the time) to fix it remotely. In case of a defect in your equipment or any device, you can contact us by email contact@smart& and we will get back to you shortly. Our products are manufactured in France, so we can solve problems effectively and quickly.

If you want to get the Smart & Connective certification and start selling our solution, all you have to do is follow our one-day course. More infoHERE.

Our Smart & Connective solution is what we call a No-Code solution. This means that you won’t need any knowledge in programming. Once your integrator sets up the solution, you will access a predefined dashboard that you can organize as you wish, along with your scenarios. Our backend has been specifically designed for an easy use by anyone.

Smart & Connective is an affordable solution with a guaranteed return on investment in 12 to 18 months. It is hence perfect for small businesses because the cost is low and energy savings are immediate.

Using Smart & Connective solution, you can expect a 20 to 30% cut on your energy consumption, right after set up.

With Smart & Connective, you won’t need to change your HVAC because we are compatible with most HVACs. We work with the best IoT suppliers on the market to provide you with the best solution for your energy retrofit.

Smart & Connective is a non-intrusive solution. Our devices are always discrete and as small as possible so they can fit perfectly in your building.
