Home Automation / Smart Home

 

Home automation is the residential extension of "building automation". It is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for the elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.

 

A home automation system integrates electrical devices in a house with each other. The techniques employed in home automation include those in building automation as well as the control of domestic activities, such as home entertainment systems, houseplant and yard watering, pet feeding, changing the ambiance "scenes" for different events (such as dinners or parties), and the use of domestic robots. Devices may be connected through a computer network to allow control by a personal computer, and may allow remote access from the internet. Through the integration of information technologies with the home environment, systems and appliances are able to communicate in an integrated manner which results in convenience, energy efficiency, and safety benefits.

 

For some it may be something as simple as remote or automatic control of a few lights. For others, security may be the central application. Still others may choose to install advanced controllers or use voice recognition. As a very basic definition, we tend to refer to home automation as anything that gives you remote or automatic control of things around the home.

 

Basic Understanding of Smart Home Automation:

Following activities are possible with Automation:

 

  1. Lighting: The lights would be controlled via touch screen remote and an iPad through following ways:
    • On/Off
    • Dimming
    • Color changing

All these lights can work differently as well as through mood lighting according to the owners wish.

  1. Fan: Total Fan control.
  2. Curtain: Each room will have curtains that would be on automation
  3. AC/Heating system: Air conditioning & heater can be put on automation.
  4. Geyser: One can put on the geyser by just sending a SMS or through remote control.
  5. TV sets: One can control the TV set by various control devices
  6. Security System: Door/Window Sensors- While leaving the house, the entire set of door windows can be secured. Incase of intrusion, the system will send siren on and also call on designated numbers.
  7. CCTV Cameras: The cameras that are at key locations such as main entrance, building entrance and room entrance- can be viewed thru the iPad. For example if someone knocks at the door, who is outside can be seen on the iPad before opening the door.
  8. Doors: The doors can be opened through the same system after seeing who is outside.
  9. Audio/Video: The occupant can choose from a varied list of audio and video from his iPad and launch the same to his room television.
  10. Appliances: Appliances such as mobile charger, DVD player, Tea Maker etc. can also be integrated.
  11. Do Not Disturb: From the room screens, the option to activate DND would be there.
  12. Service Call: From the room screen, you can order to call a servant.
  13. Interfaces: Each room can have the following interfaces
    • Two keypads in each room gives you control where you require it
    • 8.4 inch touch screen with WiFi that has all the functions & controls  
    • Touch remotes
    • Any Android device control (Mobile etc.)
    • iPad Control
    • PC Control
  1. Entry Management system: All the rooms would open with access controls that would run on any combination of biometric/Card/keypad.
  2. Motion sensors: This is a great way of saving the electricity & doing the light management. The lights will automatically put-off once no body is there in the room/kitchen/stairs/bathroom etc.
