The smart home, is no longer a futuristic vision as it once was, it is a reality in our homes. Thanks to our smartphone, we can open our door, activate the heating or even check the security of our house when we are not there. The smart devices thus help us to rationalize our daily life and, even in some cases, guarantee us peace of mind. For people curious to know how an intelligent house works, let’s see how it works.
How smart home works
It is not without reason that a home with home automation equipment is also called smart home. Indeed, the principle of operation of home automation is based on a communication of the devices, so that these devices can be controlled remotely by a single control device. Making our everyday tasks easier, monitoring our home… the smart home has been designed to provide us with security as well as the best comfort.
We can use a remote control or a central computer to remotely control the various smart devices. Our smartphone or touch tablet can also be used as the central driver for these devices. To do this, we will first have to install some technical equipment management software in our smartphone or touch tablet. Depending on our home automation network connection, requests and information are conveyed by an appropriate cabling system, radio waves, a Wifi network or an electrical network.
In addition to automatic window and gate systems, surveillance and alarm systems or automatic lighting, the home automation equipment of our habilitation also reveals a potential in terms of absolute well-being and comfort in the programming of our audiovisual equipment, household appliances, their coordination with other smart devices according to our daily habits.
Programming possibilities of smart home
Programming that our bathroom is at the temperature it takes several minutes after the ringing of our alarm clock, systematically lowering our blinds when our DVD player is in playback mode, turning on our coffee maker automatically at a specific time… the programming possibilities of our smart home are very wide. Otherwise, if it is better to think of an intelligent house before our work, home automation also integrates well into a house that is already built.
Furthermore, the home automation equipment in our smart home does not only apply to newer household appliances. Indeed, we can install a suitable box to connect our older device to our home automation network. We can also rectify task setting terms if a case arises or delete a scheduled function.
Thus, our smart home brings together many technologies including electronics and information technology. It also uses several telecommunication techniques. Its operation which seems difficult to grasp at first sight is however easy to understand thanks to the simplicity of use of the home automation equipment.
