Heating, ventilation, air conditioning and communication technology

Heating and cooling for homes and businesses is becoming more and more expensive as energy prices continue to rise. Effective climate control is therefore more important than ever. Customers want a high level of room comfort – at the lowest possible price. The solutions in Gira System 55 offer manual or automated temperature control for this.

Multimedia, network, data

From home cinema to home office. From data transfer to comprehensive communication solutions in commercial buildings: The multimedia and network connections in the Gira System 55 offer digital and analog interfaces for all common applications in the field of multimedia and networking.

From the customer’s point of view, however, everything must not only function smoothly, but also look good. System 55 also makes this possible: Many connections can be built in so that they match the design of the entire electrical installation.

Door communication and security

The Gira door communication system reliably helps with access control indoors and outdoors. If this part of the electrical installation is also to be carried out in the desired switch area, customers and trade will find the right variants in Gira System 55: For example, Keyless In for keyless access control via fingerprint. Or the Gira built-in video home station Plus with TFT color display and practical touch control.

Safety with comfort and design

People’s need for security is particularly great within their own four walls. Here you just want to feel safe and secure. The corresponding functions of the Gira System 55 combine safety with comfort and design: smoke detectors, video surveillance solutions, orientation lights or the Gira bathroom and toilet emergency call set. Those who need help activate a signal light with a buzzer outside the sanitary area using the long pull cord, thereby immediately drawing attention to their situation. The SCHUKO socket with LED orientation light provides a better overview and safer walking in dark rooms.
