8 Reasons To Make Your Home Smart

8 reasons to make your home smart

Depending on your needs, desires, and budget, there are three levels of home automation. The solutions to go from a simple home to a smart home.

Connected objects

The first level for home automation is connected objects, which operate thanks to an application individually and are connected via Wi-Fi to the home box. It can be a thermostat that manages the house's radiators and gives indications on the energy expenditure. A robot vacuum that can trigger remotely to find your own home when you come home from work. A fridge indicates the foods to be repurchased and indicates the expiration dates; a video surveillance system with facial recognition; an entrance door with biometric lock; a robotic mower; a swimming pool water analysis system.

Home automation

The home automation house, for its part, is thoroughly combined: screens, alarm, air conditioning, video mode, cool drawing on wall, heating, IT. Everything is centralized and works with the house's electrical network via radio. But a more reliable solution consists of creating a 27-volt "bus" network specifically dedicated to home automation.
Programming your washing machine and your TV remote control; that's home automation! And thanks to her, you can make your home "smart."
The smart home, or connected home, uses technology to facilitate the daily life of its inhabitants while respecting the environment. Thanks to home automation, everyone can make their home comfortable and secure to protect their home from intruders, their children from life accidents, or even achieve significant energy savings.

A connected home

To be efficient, the intelligent home communicates: like a team! A wired or wireless network connects home devices, and everything can control at one point.

  • The wave radio and infrared are used without son home automation technologies.
  • The cables to use the existing electrical network must be installed by a specialized company which will have studied their arrangement.

Using various tools (remote controls, boxes, smartphones, tablets), the signals are transmitted to the various devices, making the environment quick and easy to master. These requirements can be taken inside the house but also remotely, with a smartphone, for example.

A house protected from intruders

If a simple sound alarm is sometimes not enough to discourage burglars, clever solutions exist, and home security automation makes it possible to set up a natural defense plan.

  • Depending on your needs (going on vacation, weekend, night), you anticipate scenarios: break-in, damage to the garden, nighttime revelers, etc.
  • The necessary equipment is installed to respond to these scenarios: closing shutters, automatic watering, programmed lighting, etc.
  • It can stimulate your presence to discourage intrusion or trigger the monitoring when you choose.

The presence detection camera can generate an alert on a security service or even on your laptop, thanks to a new application: video surveillance. You are acquainted in real-time and remotely if someone is attempting to access your home. You can then call a security company or the police.

A low consumption house

Technology and communication allow the programming of multiple devices in your home:

  • The heating: it triggers an hour before coming and removed when you leave;
  • The lighting: timer and movement sensor you evade omissions;
  • The watering: intelligent automatic irrigation is the most efficient. Programmed at night, the water does not evaporate, the plants are not scorched by the sun, and you sleep soundly!

This programming saves energy and, therefore, money.

A house protected from domestic accidents

No one is secure from a breakdown, a cut, intoxication or a burn, or even a fire. Children are regrettably the first martyrs of domestic accidents.
The smart home makes it possible to limit risks by integrating:

  • Of smoke detectors;
  • The detectors of carbon monoxide;
  • Self-triggered alarms if needed (PMR, for people with reduced mobility);
  • Motion detectors with alarm linked to your loved ones' smartphones;
  • Remote monitoring cameras (for children and dependent persons).

Equipped with numerous sensors and alarms, the smart home makes it possible to identify any potentially dangerous malfunction.

A house adapted to the weather.

The many sensors of the intelligent home make it almost autonomous to adapt perfectly to the weather:

  • The curtains begin in the morning and ending at night.
  • The sunroof of a conservatory can be more or less closed, depending on the room's temperature.
  • The heating and air conditioning can adapt to the outside temperature to produce pleasant room air consistent with the season! (Those looking to have 22 ° C all year round at home in all weathers lose energy and money!)

A house that can be closed with a button

After proper installation, you can close all the shutters of the house in a single gesture!

  • Yourself, by activating the closure.
  • Automatically, by programming the shutters to close at 9 p.m., for example.

This system offers:

  • Comfort;
  • The security of knowing that everything is securely closed in your absence;
  • The possibility of simulating a presence during his holidays, for example.

A house that goes out on its own

Very practical for heads in the air, the bulbs that turn on and off automatically dress the house of tomorrow.
Several advantages to this intelligent system:

  • Make believe that you are there, during your vacation or at night;
  • Make your life easier when you come home at night, shopping under your arm, your bag under the other, the mail between your teeth;
  • Detect a presence and scare the burglar;
  • Avoid wasting energy.

A house adapted to your old age.

More and more companies are looking to help the elderly and people with reduced mobility stay at home. To do this, they anticipate the problems that people with loss of autonomy may encounter and implement appropriate technological solutions to facilitate their daily lives and caregivers.
It goes through:

  • Adequate fittings: medical bed, bathtub with door, staircase lift;
  • Sensors to make the environment very practical (motion detectors, for example), or to detect a malfunction or a fall and alert relatives;
  • New applications for arranging feeds, duties, and home care;
  • Manage the whole house thanks to a centralized control for all the home automation.
