Context of Application
Since 2018 the Canaves Epitome Hotel offers a new type of luxury on the isle of Santorini, in Greece.
Perched above the picturesque fishing town of Ammoudi, the property takes inspiration from the traditional Cyclades architecture by combining natural and earthy materials to modern styles and designs.
The hotel offers an infinity-edge pool, a restaurant to have breakfast, a lounge-bar overlooking the sunset, a sun terrace and private poolside cabins.
The suites and the mansions are designed elegantly and they include a private pool or a plunge pool, a sea view and the beach access within walking distance.
In 2021 the hotel decided to improve the interiors of its suites and mansions to raise considerably the exclusivity and the luxury of the experience.
Canaves Oia chose to rely on Ekinex for the panel and the wall-mounted devices for the climate control and the lighting of the rooms.
The 20VENTI series buttons in Surface version with Fenix malè white and cacao orinoco finishes have been chosen as aesthetic solution.
The backlighting with proximity sensor allows the guests to recognise the symbols engraved on the buttons even in the dark: when they approach the buttons, these ones light up, instead when they move away, they switch off so as not to disturb at night.
Lighting and climate control are possible thanks to the Ekinex panel devices in the suites and mansions:
EK-FB1-TP: 8-channel binary output for command and control of utilities
EK-FF1-TP: 16-channel binary output and 8-channel actuator for shading devices
EK-FE1-TP: 8-channel binary output and 4-channel actuator
EK-BG1-TP: DALI-KNX gateway for the communication of DALI luminaires with the KNX protocol
EK-GF1-TP: 0-10 V 4-channel dimmer for dimming the light intensity of luminaires with 0-10 Volt control input
EK-GA1-TP: universal 2-channel dimmer
EK-BC1-TP: IP router for connecting the KNX system to a LAB network
EK-AG1-TP: KNX bus power supply with 30 Vdc auxiliary output
