Our new project at Russian StartUp Tour 2015

On April 14-15, the regional stage of the Russian StartUp Tour , a large-scale project supported by the Skolkovo Russian Innovation Fund, was held at the National Library of Belarus . Russian StartUp Tour promotes the development of young projects in the field of information technology.


The first day of the event was devoted to master classes from experts, seminars and communication with IT specialists and mentors.

The second day of the tour is the contest of pitch presentations opened by Pekka Villakainen- A business angel from Finland and part-time adviser to the president of the Skolkovo Foundation. Pekka held a master class on the importance of the team itself in the project and told the story of a friend who realized his idea only thanks to the team.

Project presentations were held in five categories:
  • information Technology
  • biological and medical technologies
  • industrial technologies and materials
  • energy and energy efficient technologies
  • innovation for children

In Minsk, more than 900 applications were submitted for participation in the competition, of which only 73 projects passed the preliminary selection of experts and were able to present their presentations at the competition. 11 projects took part in the track "Information Technologies". Our team also passed the preliminary selection and presented the “Smart Automation System”


Smart Automation System - a simple system that allows you to turn your home into a truly “Smart home”. The "smart home" system solves many problems, including:
  1. Combining separate systems (lighting, climate control, etc.) into a single whole
  2. Resource saving
  3. Comfort

In addition to the problems described above, Smart Automation System helps the user to prove himself: the system allows you to customize various scenarios and plans individually. This possibility is absent in other similar systems, where the functionality is limited by the modes set by the developers.

The advantage of the Smart Automation System is its intuitive interface, which will be easy to understand for both the child and the elderly. All sensors are indicated by simple images.

The project also implemented the ability to edit the plan of the house and the sensors themselves. The user can easily drag the sensor to another place on the plan, change its image or independently draw a new house plan - there is no need to use third-party programs or change something in the code.

An important advantage of the system is the possibility of its implementation even after the repair of the house is completed - the system uses Z-Wave devices that “deploy” the wireless network.

Thus, the Smart Automation System is a fully customizable Smart Home system that any user can handle.
