Plan is a rastre image assigned to Level (floor). To create a plan, we recommend using free of charge software for interior design:
- Sweet Home 3D http://www.sweethome3d.com (Java is required). Highly flexible and functional tool for 3D and 2D interior design. The demo plan supplied with Arloid Automation system was created using this software.
- AUTODESK Homestyler http://www.homestyler.com/designer (it requires Flash Player and runs via a Web browser). Online interior design software from a globally known supplier of industrial CAD systems.
- RoomSketcher http://planner.roomsketcher.com (it requires Flash Player and runs via a Web browser). That's an alternative online tool to design interiors.
A layout can be created using other specialized interior design software or obtained from the house/apartment designer.
Recommendations for layout format
||600 x 600 dpi
||1400 x 1400 dpi
The size of a device icon will depend on the size of the uploaded layout image. Very heavy files will negatively affect the convenience (on a very big layout devices will look tiny). If you need to have a really large layout, we recommend dividing it into separate parts and arranging them at separate levels.
If you are using a big plan and all device icons look very small you can zoom in the layout with a mouse scroll (or zoom in the image by a two-finger gesture).
