Dvele, the home technology firm founded in 2016 that specializes in luxury prefabricated homes, recently announced the launch of its 'Software-Defined Homes'–a new take on the classic "smart home." Self-powered by solar panels (with a battery backup), the Dvele homes use 84% less energy than traditional homes. Not only do these homes actively fight climate change, they also increase power-grid resilience.
Called 'DveleIQ,' the new software platform was created to enable the home to adapt, learn, and improve over time to promote the health and well-being of the homeowner while remaining energy efficient for the health of the planet. This is thanks to the software's ability to communicate preemptive maintenance while monitoring air quality, energy consumption, building durability, and the overall state of the home–such a room temperature, garage, doors, and more.
According to the brand, the DveleIQ is "pioneering a new building industry standard that places an emphasis on equipping residential buildings with software and embedded intelligence that will promote the best possible health of its inhabitants while increasing the efficiency and value of a home over time."
