Gira interface – simple operation of complex systems

Simple operation of complex house control: the concept of the new Gira interface focused mainly upon a high level of user friendliness, fast orientation and a visually appealing information design. All functions controlled by the Gira HomeServer 3 are now available within two levels. A clear and intuitive menu guidance ensures quick access.

Devices that can be used for building control via the Gira HomeServer 3 present themselves with a homogenous interface design, whether the Gira Control 19 Client is used or a laptop, PDA or a Smartphone such as the iPhone.

The user interface has been optimised for the various image sizes of the media. As such, the user interface with large screen diagonals such as with the Gira Control 19 Client is divided into three areas, guaranteeing particularly convenient operation. With colours and the incorporation of background images, individual adaptations according to user requirements can be integrated. The menu items "Favourites" and "MyTouch" takes specific user behaviour into account and can be individually adapted.
