home automation systems

The new age has brought with it new advancements in technology such as home automation systems. This involves the automation of a building’s systems such as ventilation, air conditioning, heating, lighting, security among others. It also entails monitoring and controlling home appliances like the microwaves, washing machines, televisions and sound systems.

Home automation is made possible through an internet connection. By the simple use of Wi-Fi one can control and monitor the equipment works from their phone, laptop or a remote control without necessarily being in the building. The home automation systems are fitted with switches and sensors linked to a central hub which is controlled by a user interface that interacts with a wall mounted terminal, web interface and occasionally, internet cloud services.

The most common communication protocols used for smart homes are Ethernet, Bluetooth LE (BLE), ZigBee, Z Wave, X 10 among others.

Smart homes have the following applications:

  • Occupancy –aware control system: This is integrated with the home automation system to enable you to know the occupancy of your home using smart meters and CO2 sensors.
  • Lighting control system: This is employed to enhance energy savings for indoor and outdoor lighting. It uses occupancy sensors, time clocks to switch the light on and off and photocells.
  • Security system: It involves the integration of the household security system with the home automation system to provide services such as security camera surveillance or provide a lockdown of your house from a central place.
  • Leak detection, smoke and carbon dioxide detectors: This smart home systems trigger an alarm when a gas leak or smoke is detected which is transmitted to your mobile device to prevent fire.
  • Heating, ventilation and Air conditioning (HVAC). This system allows you to control and get necessary feedback of electrical energy used by the HVAC devices.
  • Home automation for the elderly:  This smart home system is assistive for older adults enabling them to stay in the house comfortably and safely.

Smart homes save time as you can easily adjust your household appliances even when you are away saving you on cost and providing convenience.
