GOLD METAL TO GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Google Assitant

Perphaps, our country is discovering all the functions of the voice assistants, but there are places like USA where these devices are integrated day-to-day.

Para aquellos que no estéis familiarizados con los asistentes de voz, hablamos de un asistente virtual con inteligencia artificial que, a través de conversaciones bidireccionales, permite comunicarse con el dispositivo por voz y éste procesa, interpreta y responde al usuario.

The devices mostly known are: Siri by Apple, Google Assistant by Google, Alexa by Amazon and Cortana by  Microsoft.

These software are integrated in differents hardwares, for example:

  1.  Smart speakers like Amazing Echo, Google Home or Microsoft.
  2. Messages App like M by Facebook Messengers.
  3. Integrated software in systems like Siri, Cortana or Google Allo.
  4. Electrical appliance, vehicles, smart watches, clothes…
GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Today we´re going to talk about Google´s voice assitant, Google Assistant.

There is a fight with the others voice assistants to get the first place on this sector. Google has done a big investment an it gets to be on the top of them:

Time to Answer: Google Assistant offers faster answer than the other assitants.

Background Noise: Google Assistant and Siri work so good with background noises.

Best results: Google gives better results than Alexa. Google uses its onw searcher to give better results. Meanwhile, Amazon assitant looks for around its webs and showed products.

Integration: the integration is a key element. Google Assistant is ready to be used by Android or iOS system, meanwhile Siri only works with iOS system.

Personalized results: Google has a lot of personal data, it doesn´t mean that it hasn´t privacity, when you looking for something. Then, it could give you a personalized results.

Cost/Quality Balance: with a price of 120€, Google speaker isn´t the cheapest device, as Alexa is, but it doesn´t get the 350€ of Apple assistant. It´s a great balance of quality/price.

FUNCTIONS

If we think what could Google Home do for us if we install it at home, we´ll discover that:

– We connect it with the automatic shutters and we could open and close them with our voice.

– We connect it with our automatic garage gates and with our voice we could open and close the home access.

Electric devices could be connected and we could swith on without force.

This is only the begining of a technology with a great future.

THE COMMUNITY CHALLENGES FACED WITH TOURIST APPARTMENT

Access control to tourist appartment

Platforms like Airbnb and/or Booking have strirred up the tourist sector. Our model has changed and the offers too. You´ll find tourist appartment in a lot of communities, a legal business but with some problems.

Beyond noises and problems with the regular entrances and exists, you have to think about the security and access of your community. How could you know if there aren´t key copies around the city? Rentals could lose the keys or take with them.

We have a security problem in our community. Powermatic has some systems to help you to solve this problems.

Mecanic keys.

Mecanic keys are like the key that we are used to take with us. These are special because they are made by alpaca to be reforced and it couldn´t be copied out of installing company. We could have a extra control if the owners/rentals could collect the key with an authorisation of the Administration.

Electronic key.

Electronic keys are the revolution of last years. We need to install a electric cylinders before and after that, we could manage and set up the installation. We could select who owner or what keys open some gates. We could personalise the accesses of each key. We could fix or cancel the keys.

Remote control and proximity cards.

There is a technology that give us a remote controls and proximity cards that they couldn´t be copied. We could have a system to register and asociate each remote and card. If you lose your advices, it could be located in the system and cancel it.

 Powermatic is ready to help you to solve the community problems.

EMERGENCY OPENING IN AUTOMATIC GATES

unlock automatic gate

It isn´t an usual situation but sometimes our gates could fail. Sometimes the problem is an electric failure or engine. We have a big problem if this happens and we are inside and couldn´t go out.

If we are in this situation, we need to unblock the gate and open it by manual mode. We´re going to show you how you could unblock all the automatic gates. First of all, you have to be calm and you have to know what kind of gate is yours.

Folding gates unblocking.

Folding gates have a electric lock that it fixes the gate to the frame; it´s to give more security. The engines could have an extra blocker that you could unlock if your turn the key located in the engine. When the blocker is free, you have to take the cover off and turn the key to open the sheets by yourself.

Roller gates unblocking.

Roller gates use to have a block inside the engine. If you want to unblock just pull the wire that you´ll find into outside box or pull the inside handle. After that you have to open by yourself. Sometime the roller gates is heavy and you need an extra help.

HOW COULD I SECURE MY AUTOMATIC GATE?

security devices to automatic gates

Don´t forget to think in security when you are talking about automatic gates. It´s easy and confortable to have some automotions at home. If we could raise and put down a big weight, it´s a diary force and damages that we avoid them.

There are some devices to give our gates more security. We´re going to show yoy the most important element to get a very secure automatic gate:

PHOTOCELLS

Essential element that we coulnd´forget to install in our automatic gate. This system detects a obstacle and send a signal to stop or open again the gate. There are two groups:

  • Retro-reflecting photocell: the emitter and receiver are the same element. To get the ultraviolet light go back to emitter, it uses a retro-flecting device like mirrow.
  • Photocell with emitter and receiver: this system has a double device, a emitter located on a side and the receiver on the other side. If the receiver doesn´t receive the sign, it opens the gate.

PARACHUTES

The swivelling gates use this security system to avoid big disasters. Theses gates work with a lateral springs, if one of them is broken, the parachute stops the gate. A similar system is the emergency brake of elevators.

ANTICRUSH SYSTEM

Anticrush sysmte is composed by a rubbers installed at the end of the gate. In case of sliding gate, we install them between the two sheets. They avoid to introduce a hand between the sheets and a direct crush with gate.

ALERTING LIGHT

Turn signal is a way to inform about precaution situation. So, it´s a good idea to install a device with flash lights when the gate starts to open. It´s a way to advice pedestrians to take care becasuse a vehicle is going to exite or enter.

SAFETY EDGES

The sytem  is installed on the frame; the safety edse are very useful when the gate hasn´t got an anticrush system. It´s made by rubber and when your press it, it sends a sign to stop the closing.

AUTUMN, A HARD SEASON TO YOUR GATES

automatic gates in Autumn

Say goodbye to summer is the end of sunny and calm days. At Spain, the autumn is a season of atmospheric instability. Our gates will fight versus hot,  hummity and rain at the same time. If you didn´t hone your gate in summer, now it´s your time!
Powermatic goes to show you some standards to enjoy the autumn without headache.

IMPENETRABILITY

If you don´t want a dowpour becomes a disaster, we recommend you to check the impenetrability and water tightness of electronic devices. Get and special check with the buried engine.

CLEANING

Don´t forget that automatic gates are a part of your home too. So, you should add them in your cleaning rutines.
For example, sliding gate uses to build up filth inside the guides. This could be an obstacle and damage the engine.

LUBRICATION

Summer dryness could affect to the gate movements. It´s so easy to know if your gate needs lubrication. How? If you listed a lot of noises and unusual skeals… your gate needs your help.

Powermatic recommends you take care with the brush, fix and move points. Keep your gate lubricated.
