Smart home — the salvation of the household chores

Smart House is a modern, technological building that, in addition to providing a roof over your head and allows you to fulfill the basic needs of life, offers residents many additional options.

What is a smart building?

Although it is difficult to give an official definition, as it varies depending on the source used, an intelligent building is usually defined as a modern or modernized residential, industrial or office building equipped with a control system. Standard installations usually include:

Electrical installation (with connected appliances, electronics and lighting).
Central heating system.
Installation of water supply and sewerage with a hot water supply system.

If these installations are connected to a building automation system (controlled remotely or from a controller level located in the building), the whole thing can be called an intelligent building.

Heating – in a smart home, you can use almost any type of heating – you can connect both a heat pump and a underfloor heating system to the system, as well as a gas, eco–coal stove or a stove with other fuel. Then one of the most important elements of the installation will be a programmable thermostat, which will allow you to set the desired temperature change cycles in individual zones and a possible connection to the central control system of the smart home.

Air conditioning – Controlling an air conditioner is similar to controlling heating, but usually easier. If you have a built-in heating and air conditioning system, just connect a thermostat to them. Everything connected to the controller will allow you to conveniently control the temperature.

Weather stations-connecting the weather station to the system will, for example, display a message about the current forecast on the TV. In the advanced versions, you can use such amenities as automatically closing windows during a storm.

Water flow control and energy consumption control – for example, a smart tap can be connected to the home automation system, it will turn on only when moving near the sensor, and also measure water flow. You can also monitor the use of hot and cold water from the central level, broken down by individual devices and points of consumption.

Smart Home-Video entertainment

Video-Smart TV is an option that allows you to extend the functionality of traditional television by browsing the Internet, playing games, or watching TV series and movies from streaming platforms and YouTube on a large screen. After integration with the home automation system, you get additional features, such as control via voice commands or control from the mobile device level.

The systems may differ depending on the specific configuration, but they are always united by a common goal: to provide the building’s users with the highest possible level of comfort and safety.
