What is a Smart home system and how much does it cost

10 November 2021

The Smart Home system is designed to make the user’s life easier and safer. The last criterion is especially important and valuable. Being at a distance, you can prevent a fire or flood. No more need to remember with horror – whether you turned off the iron or the stove!

What does this system give?

Several functions can be assigned to the “smart home” at once. The main advantages that it gives look like this.

  1. Safety. It can turn off electrical appliances, shut off taps, turn on alarms, monitor smoke, gas and motion sensors.

  2. Automation of everyday and routine tasks. He can control the temperature and light in the apartment, set up the shower, turn on the kettle.

  3. Cost savings. You will no longer have to pay for the light or water left on.

Each user can choose a management system that is convenient for him. Conventionally, they can be divided into groups, but integration often occurs and one method complements or is used in parallel with the other:

  • via phone, tablet;

  • by voice;

  • through the wall panel.

Examples of smart devices

  1. Air freshener. You can remotely adjust the frequency and intensity of the air supply.

  2. Smart curtains. They are closed and opened by voice command or at a specified time.

  3. Robot vacuum cleaner. With the help of the application, the user gives the command to clean the apartment, while being far from home.

  4. Lamps and chandeliers. It doesn’t matter if you forgot to turn it off. Smart lamps are able to turn off themselves when you leave the apartment, if such a program is set.

  5. Shower. You can adjust the temperature, intensity and method of supply (through a watering can, shower or side nozzles if available) of water.

How does the system work?

Developers strive to meet the needs of users as much as possible, therefore, they offer two options for the operation of the system at once.

  1. Manual control via voice command, remote control or smartphone. The command is sent to the central processor, which delegates its execution to a specific device.

  2. Without human involvement. In this case, commands are executed automatically based on data from sensors and various timers. For example, the air conditioner can turn on the cooling mode if the temperature on the sensor exceeds the set parameters.

Thus, the smart home system consists of three main elements:

  1. Sensors that read information from their environment.

  2. The central processor or controller issuing commands.

  3. Executing devices that perform the task set by the processor.

How much does the system cost?

With the phased implementation of the system, large expenses can be avoided. For example, to begin with, install one voice assistant and connect a smart coffee maker (the cost is about $ 150. Next, continue the modernization of the apartment by purchasing smart light bulbs (about $ 35) and a smart camera (from $ 140), which will ensure your safety.

The main plus is the ability to install everything yourself.
