How to configure Smart Home scenarios and what they can be

Today, the smart home system is gaining popularity exponentially not only among various businesses, but also among private consumers. It conquers everyone with its convenience, versatility and the possibility of savings that it provides.

One of the main features of this system is the ability to create and set different scenarios for the system, depending on the circumstances. Under the scenario, experts understand a set of certain actions that were thought out in advance. These actions of the “smart house” does in standalone mode or when running a particular scenario.

At the moment, it is possible to include any event in the scenario, or a whole combination of events, which will be performed by the smart home system. A special advantage is that the number of events and actions in scenarios is not limited in any way, except only by the user’s imagination and needs.

This feature makes the use of this system at times more convenient, comfortable and easier. After all, you do not need to give the system commands for each action, but just press one button to make the system perform, say, twenty actions.

Setting up a smart home

To date, it is possible to configure the system and program scenarios through a special mobile application, which is currently available for absolutely any gadgets. It doesn’t matter which system the gadget runs on, since the app is adapted to both operating system platforms. However, before launching the app, you must install a special server on the gadget, and only then launch the app, otherwise it will definitely not work.

Using this application is easy, just click on the option of the same name, and then think through the entire scenario from beginning to end, install the appropriate icon on it, and that’s it.

After that, the system itself will offer a list of available rooms and devices that can work offline. From the suggested devices, the user will have to choose the necessary actions with them and click the “save”button.

Scenario options

Despite the huge variety of different combinations of events that can be included in the scenario and provided by available devices, there are currently several standard and widespread scenarios:

Home theater. One of the most common scenarios, which includes closing the Windows with shutters, turning on the air conditioning system, turning off or dimming the light, turning on the outlet to which the TV is connected;
Sleep. Another fairly standard scenario, which includes turning off the lights, locking doors and Windows, as well as disabling all electrical appliances in the house;
Leaving home. This scenario allows users to leave in the past all experiences on the subject of household appliances left at home in the enabled state, since this scenario automatically de-energizes all electrical appliances connected in the house.
