Home Automation is a growing industry and a popular trend for homeowners who want the latest technology. However, it can also be a great new tool for making your house environment friendly, using green technology, and using intelligent touch panel or any other computer in the world to control and monitor household appliances and their energy consumption.
Intelligent House Systems are designed to make your living easier and more enjoyable. With a tap on touch control panel or a simple push of a button on a stylish remote control, you can dim the lights, close the shades, set a comfortable temperature, and cue up your favorite movies in your luxury home theater.
Central Control: All home automation systems include signal control system to coordinate between different appliances. More advanced systems have central controls, which allow you to connect to any part of the system. Central controllers can be connected by wire/wireless and are mounted in your wall, or you wield the specialized remote control, or touch panel and communicate with your home via infrared (IR) or radio frequency (RF). Another common and easy way to communicate with your smart home is via computer, internet, or your phone.
Lighting: Lightning can add an extra layer of security, when you're not home. You could instruct your living room lights to turn on automatically at 6:45 PM every night, so that you appear to be home, whether you are or not. And then, to avoid a giant carbon footprint, you could attach a motion sensor that commands the lights to switch off after 30 minutes if no movement is detected.
CLIMATE CONTROL (HVAC): For example, You might have floor heaters installed in your bathroom, that are set to begin warming 15 minutes before you wake up each day. They might be set to "warm" the floor for 60 minutes before they automatically shut off. You can apply the same technology for towel warmers, and even drawer warmers – so your clothes are toasty warm when you get out of the shower.
Entertainment: Today's home entertainment systems have enough power to achieve many tasks at once. Home entertainment system can broadcast a movie with high-quality picture and sound in one room, for example, while simultaneously allowing a different film to be played in a different room.
Intercom: Picture yourself sitting in your lounge room at one end of the house, when your doorbell rings at the other end of your home. You pick up a palm-sized device, which feeds through a live video stream of your front door. If you see a friend or your guest, you press a button and the door unlocks. If you see a threatening or unfriendly face, you call the police. It's as easy as that!
