Smart home pursues the aim of analysing all those technologies that can smarten up the quality of life at home and other buildings.
Not only that. Smart home devices are unique in the range of high-quality performances and opportunities it provides, optimizing consumptions and allowing the integration of different functions like control, comfort, security, energy saving and communication.
Smart home system allows the coordinated management of all devices both in residential and tertiary applications. It differs from the standard application, where functions can be activated with standard controls, unable of interacting or being controlled from a single point.
While potentialities are still increasing, fields of application can be extended to other areas and sectors. The adoption of new technologies in commercial areas and working environments is constantly growing, like for example in specialized studies and clinics.
Smart home is fundamental in helping the elderly and people with disabilities. Home automation in this field has grown a lot lately because it helps the elderly or the disabled people doing also complex actions thanks to personalized automation.
The term smart home refers to a technologically advanced space that can provide benefits and support to all customers by using interconnected automated devices.
A smart home system leads to multiple advantages: lighting control, doors and roller shutters opening, climate control, communication systems and security systems interact inside and outside, even remotely with smartphones, tablets or pc. This synergy increases comfort, energy saving, security and connectivity with communication networks.
A wide range of offered solutions that can be boosted to meet always changing demands. At the beginning, a home automation system can be realized with minimal functions and then modified with the new ones based on the latest demands. The arrangement of the system is fundamental to avoid further building works. Despite this, it is still possible to integrate new functions through Wi-Fi (like IoT products connected with the network) or radiofrequency.
Home automation can be employed also in the commercial sector. In this case, we talk about building automation. The results are smart buildings and working environments where everything is integrated: lights, heating, security systems, information and communication networks. Management software contribute to a centralized and efficient control of all functions, whether it is commercial, receptive (Grand Hotels, hotels, tourist resorts, bed and breakfasts) or health facilities.
From lighting to access control. From the oversight over consumptions to the dialogue with other already present devices. A single system can manage everything allowing the management and coordination of all automation in the building, whether it is an office, a hotel, a commercial or a gym.
This complete integration allows concrete advantages, avoiding unnecessary waste and increasing wellness. A central point can control climate and someone’s presence or the opening/closing of a window can then activate (or deactivate) it. Card lecturers or transponders allow access to specific areas to authorized personnel and security cameras check the whole building. Results: security guaranteed.
