About

If you want to… 

- Make your entire home and appliances smart, connected and automated… 

- Connect your appliances the way you want, without any ridiculous restrictions (yes, you can tell your coffee machine to make you a coffee every time you flush the toilet, why not)… 

- Control every part of your home, even if you’re hundreds (or even thousands) of miles away… 

- Make significant savings on your electric or gas bill (by not letting your appliances be ON and waste energy when there is no need)... 

- Control everything from your iOS, Android, Windows, or any other device… 

- Have a secured smart home system that can’t be hacked (you’re protected with advanced 2-step encryption system)  

- Be simple to use (so that even your mom could set up everything on her own)...  

Then this is the Kickstarter project that you need to check out closely and, hopefully, back it up.

Here’s why…  

So far, every smart home solution on the market requires from you to have a smart device (appliance). In other words, if you want to make your home smart and automated, you’d need to buy a bunch of new devices, even if your old ones work just fine.

Up until now. 

Introducing…  

AHIS - Automated Home Information System That Allows You to Make Your Entire Home Smart, Automated and Connected, in Just 4 Hours, Without Tech Skills and Even if You Have Old, “Dumb” Appliances 

To put it in other words, you plug and/or connect all your devices with AHIS, choose what type of device they are (are they sensor, input or output devices) and you’re all set. 

Yup, that’s the whole process. It’s so simple that even your kid (or your mom) could do it. 

There’s a joke here in our team when some client asks if some training is needed: We ask them do they know how to drill a hole in a wall. If they say YES, we say

 “Great, you’ve got a certificate.” Then we ask them do they know how to hang things on the wall so they don’t fall off. If YES, then they got Advanced User Certificate. And the final question: do you know how to click buttons on a cell phone or on the computer. If YES, then they’re Official AHIS Implementation Coach. 

Don’t believe me? Check out this short video for live demonstration:

Told you it’s easy. (What do you think about the idea at 2:09? Crazy, right?)  

Now, if you’re anything like me, you probably asking “how is this even possible?”. Here’s how  

Basically, any device on Earth can be classified into 4 main categories (based on their signals). You have:  

  • Input sensors (for example, a thermostat, thermometer, light sensor, etc.) 
  • On/off devices (light switch, etc.) 
  • AC and DC devices (no, not comic books. Things like dimmers and everything that need smart and precise regulation) 

When you connect those devices to AHIS our advanced technology inside AHIS (no, we won’t tell you how it works) knows what type of signals is going to get, and what type of signals is going to send. And it preloads your control device (your phone, PC, whatever) with options and settings that you can use. 

After that, you control your devices the way you want, from wherever you want, without any restrictions. 

Here’s a quick tutorial on how easy it is for you to learn to use AHIS system in just 2 minutes:

Did you notice the “Offset” option at 0:36? Here’s what it does…  

With “traditional” home automation solutions, you define the target value (let’s say it’s a temperature, but this applies to everything else).  

In standard IT solutions (that weren’t developed by automation engineers) this is how “automation” works:  

Let’s say that you want a temperature in your room to be 25C. When the temperature reaches that number, the heating is off. Once it’s slightly below, it will turn on again.  

This constant on and off will eventually damage your system. That’s where “Offset” comes into play.  

With offset, it’s like you tell your system: “Look, I want my temperature to be 25C. But don’t turn on immediately when it’s 24,9C. Wait a little, give it some time, and turn it on. And once it’s 25C, don’t turn it off immediately. Wait a little, and then turn it off.”  

This will allow your heating system to work properly much longer, and it will spend less energy, which means more money saved in your pocket.

Check out the video below to see AHIS in usage:

And check out this video to see some… well… more creative use of AHIS system:  

 “OK, and what about security? I don’t want someone to mess with my home.”

Sure, security is one of the things that pay most attention on, especially because we’re using cloud servers to enable to control your home from anywhere in the world.  

That’s why we partnered with Microsoft (yup, THE Microsoft), and they recognized our work and our efforts and now we are part of their Microsoft BizSpark Global Startup Program.  

That practically means that we are using the latest cloud technology from Microsoft, just to make sure that you have the highest level of security. In addition to online security, we also improved the offline security. 

Entire offline communication of your devices is protected with multi-layer 128-bit encryption. 

If you’re not a tech person, this is super-secured. And that’s not all.  

We know that the biggest threat is not hackers. It’s not your smart neighbor punk who want’s to prank you.  

No, the biggest threat comes from your own house!  

That threat has the power to take over the control of every device, and probably make permanent (or at least expensive) damage.  

Yes, ofcourse I’m talking about your kids.  

That’s why AHIS has a special “child protection” security level, so that you can give your kids your phone, without any fear that they’ll make your living room a living hell.

“And what if I want to automate my house, my lake house, my office and my boat? Do I need to buy more phones to control them all?”  

Absolutely not. We got you covered.  

AHIS comes with multi-account support, which means you can control multiple devices from just one device.

Also, we support a lot of devices:

If you’re a techie and you need tech specs:

 To make it simple, here are the main features and benefits of AHIS:

And this is just the beginning…  

In the following months, we plan to significantly improve AHIS.  

First, we plan to make it look beautiful (yes, we know it’s ugly, but we’re engineers). You won’t need to hide AHIS behind the flowers. Instead, AHIS will be a nice visual addition to your home.  

That’s why we plan to use part of the money you help us collect to hire a professional industrial design firm in Italy, to help us make AHIS beautiful.  

Next, we plan to add support for Z-Wave standard, and also a support for IP cameras.  

And we plan to add advanced monitoring and tracking of home conditions and select values using fuzzy logic and human behavior. In other words, we’ll make AHIS super-smart. (We’re actually using latest researches from MIT and other top institutions, to include them in AHIS.)

It’s also important to say that every future update to AHIS software will be completely FREE.  

There are a lot of things that we want to add to AHIS, and this is where we come to the point where we need your help.  

If you’d like to help us improve AHIS and put it in mass production, and at the same time secure your device at manufacturing price (pledges of $60+) click the link below, and pledge the amount you think it’s appropriate (so far, the average pledge is $145).

Who am I? 


My name is Milan, creator of AHIS system and owner of a green energy, HVAC and home automation company. 

I have McS in Industrial Automation, and I’m currently working on my PhD thesis on Industrial Automation. 

Why am I telling you all this? 

So you could see that I’m not just a hobbyist and enthusiast, but also an experienced engineer who know what he’s doing. 

My first serious work in IoT (internet of things) field was in 2006., back when term IoT wasn’t even invented. 

In my McS thesis, I designed an entire system of remote control and monitoring of the heating system, via GSM terminal. That thesis was awarded as the best thesis in my class. 

After that, I’ve spent a year working at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, and after I left I started my company, where we design, project and implement the HVAC and smart house systems for hotels, residential buildings, farms, etc. 

And after some specific requests made by one of our clients, we created what will later become AHIS. 

After that project for a client, we realized that our solution can be used for much cooler and greater things. 

And that’s why I decided to gather 26 experts in their fields, and to start develop a device now know as AHIS. 

Here’s how AHIS was developed in the last year: 

Thank you for your time. Hope you like what you see here, and that you’ll help us take AHIS to the next level. Click the link below and choose your pledge. (And send the link to this project to a friend who loves this type of things.)

Risks and challenges

AHIS is a unique product, innovative, life-changing. AHIS was built on mounds of technical knowledge and expertise. Every one of the nine creators has more than ten years of experience in air conditioning design and automation of large facilities by using green energy and PLC (industrial controllers). The entire project is run by a group of 26 enthusiasts who cover all segments of the market presentation and placement. All of us have invested a tremendous amount of work and effort into bringing AHIS to life, creating what we believe is currently the best smart home system on the market. We have a tested, working prototype - AHIS needs a mass production now and risks are minimal. Most of the technology we use is known and well used in other products. Technically there will be obstacles, but we are ready and experienced enough to tackle them as we go.
