We are a designer and builder of contemporary homes and are based in Kochi in Kerala. There has not been a lot of innovation in the home construction business in India, especially around energy efficiency and comfort, especially given the tropical climate that we live in. At ClaySys Lifestyle, we have set up a home building company that focusses on modern comfort and lifestyle amenities as a default feature in all the homes that we build. Some of the key highlights of any ClaySys Lifestyle home is the R20 insulation that makes air conditioning exponentially more efficient.
By ensuring the homes, whether they be apartments or villas, are insulated appropriately, we can significantly reduce the air conditioning system capacity and energy consumption. Allowing our customers to have a guilt-free low-cost experience with air conditioning has been an eye-opener in the construction industry, and the technology innovation that has enabled us to deliver these capabilities without raising the cost of construction a lot has been a key to our success.
We have also introduced integrated home automation technology into all our homes. This has enabled our customers to enjoy access to a practical remote control to all the electrical and HVAC services in the home, through an app on their smartphones that can be used from anywhere in the world, and from inside their homes. The design of the ClaySys Home Automation Technology is such that it avoids a single point of failure, with a very practical design targeting the Indian environment. This robust and practical design allows our clients to enjoy the benefits of such cutting edge technology for the long term, without making this technology redundant, through auto-updates to the software, and self-monitoring technology.
With automation becoming a central theme for innovation in almost every industry, we are gearing up for building automated home and communities of the future. ClaySys Lifestyle is powered by the technology innovation at ClaySys Technologies, that ensures access to the right expertise for the roadmap of innovation ahead of us.
Air Conditioning is still a feature that is not planned, designed or built into homes in India. It is usually a retrofit of split air conditioner units. But outside India, in the western countries, every home is planned and designed with ducted central air conditioning as a default feature, which we are building into homes we build in Kochi.
The biggest but most obvious innovation in the ClaySys Lifestyle home construction projects might simply be the use of professional
The insulation is applied to the internal walls, floors, and ceilings, with an insulation rating up to an R-Value of R20. The professionally installed heat insulation ensures minimal dissipation of heat into the interior living spaces and is designed to prevent heat gain by the mass of the building structure (columns, walls, ceiling, floor), preventing them from radiating heat into the interior spaces.
Forced entry into homes is always a risk. Metal grills do not really provide a foolproof safety option. ClaySys introduces laminated glass (a grade below bullet-proof glass) for its extensive glass facades. This provides physical security for each home we build, practically much greater than the traditional metal grills. What’s more, you do not have to compromise on the quality of the view from your home.
The homes we construct can be equipped with a Solar Power plant on the rooftop, at no additional cost to the home buyers. There will be a number of solar-powered applications to improve energy utilization efficiencies for the building and its residents. For a number of key applications especially related to power backup, the Solar Power plant will be the energy source. The ClaySys Technologies team is also designing an energy grid option for the homes, that are tied into the home automation system, to ensure maximum utilization of the solar power generated from the rooftop solar plant.
