After the home was completed the Simonsen family moved in and has been keeping track of how livable the home is. They keep notes about the home on their family diary blog (only in Danish), explaining how the automatic controls do or don’t work. It’s one thing to design a super efficient and automatically-controlled “smart home,” but it’s quite another to live in it. The Active House project is collecting all of this information from the family and will then apply that to the next houses they build.
