While being energized for at least 8 hours during a power failure, the OASIS Gateway will continue to monitor the air quality.
If access to the Internet is still available, the OASIS will continue to gather and provide needed or critical information as specified by the owner / user.
A standard scheduler is provided but can also be controlled and synchronized using a mobile device.
In addition to a normal set of functionalities, the OASIS platform will allow to schedule, in advance, a series of human generated activities that could / will require some adjustment to environmental conditions.
For example, if a larger than usual number of people is expected to show-up for Thanksgiving, the system will independently adjust some of the critical air quality and environmental parameters to meet the anticipated demands.
Therefore, information on social, religious, commercial or administrative purposes can be entered and memorized by the system directly on the gateway or through a remote device.
An easy to use graphical user interface with a ‘Home / Office Comfort’ Index is available to define, refine and coordinate the features of the Gateway and other connected devices to optimize the home, office or environment around its owners activities.
The Q∞Links™ platform is also a User-based system where the home / office owner decides what control or information is acted upon.
Programmable features and decision points can be stored in the unit or downloaded from a central server.
Therefore, the gateway becomes the main interface to various home / office automation devices.
The Gateway has the capability of controlling most of the bi-directional communications of simple or advanced home / office automation systems.
Firmware updates and applications uploading can be made via the Internet.
Forecasts and updates are retrieved from your favorite weather network by a single touch on the screen.
Local conditions are retrieved from nearby stations.
An integrated camera covers the area in front of the OASIS device; other cameras can be linked and accessed via the Gateway.
The display can be used to monitor wired or wireless remote home / office cameras; alternately, the same images are available from portable devices anywhere in the world.
Also, the unit can be used as a digital pictures frame.
The gateway is equipped with an intrusion detection and false alarm prevention system operating as a standalone system, a backup or connected to an existing alarm system.
It further compares the alarm signal with the sensing data from its own sensors/detectors; if the signal/data from both sources confirms the alarm,
The alarm signal will be sent to authorized agents and the users as well.
