Advantages of home automation
Convenience and speed
To achieve home automation, it is necessary to take advantage of the rapid development of computer technology, automation control technology and modern communication technology. Using these technologies, people can easily access the information in the home through computers or other network access devices, including various meter readings and costs, the status of various home appliances and monitoring devices remotely. And realize remote remote control of various home appliances and devices to achieve intelligent management of the home, etc. It can be said that home automation brings more convenient and intelligent life for people.
Reduce energy consumption
The second advantage of installing home automation system is that it can reduce the energy consumption of home appliances such as lighting, heating and air conditioning, and minimize the impact of the environment on the home. In the past, home heating, lighting and security functions were set up with traditional electronic thermostats and controllers, but home automation systems use affordable microprocessor components that allow people to remotely control their home appliances by logging into a networked computer terminal, making home automation more accessible to millions of households and significantly reducing energy consumption.
Efficient and professional
The home automation system can be logged in from anywhere via the Internet, and can be set up via keyboard, mouse and monitor. If users want a more professional automation solution, special microprocessors can be used as affordable modules to control home functions, such as heating and air conditioning systems.
Users can download a smartphone APP to send home automation commands and, depending on the installed system and network configuration, subscribe to services to log in to the system from the Internet or directly to the system. Once the user”s microprocessor sends the necessary home automation commands, the user needs the module to execute the signals, then turn on and off the lights, start or stop the heating city air conditioning and record the pictures taken by the surveillance camera. Remote repeaters and switches can control home automation devices to avoid excessive wire routing. With this command function, users can check the sensors and decide whether to issue the corresponding command.
Smart home related technology
The core of smart home products is wireless technology, which can realize the connection of smart devices with the home network and control them anytime and anywhere. With the development of home automation system, home intelligence is becoming more and more mature, the following is the classification of smart home related technology.
WiFi, that is, wireless LAN, is a personal computer, mobile devices (such as PAD, cell phones) and other terminals, wirelessly connected to each other”s technology, in fact, it uses high-frequency wireless telecommunication number.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables short-range data exchange between fixed devices, mobile devices, and building personal area networks (using UHF radio waves in the ISM band at 2.4-2.485 GHz).
Z-Wave is a wireless networking specification led by Zensys, a Danish company. It is an RF-based, low-cost, low-function, low-power, highly reliable, emerging short-range wireless communication technology for networks.
ZigBee technology is a short-range, low-power, low-rate, low-cost, high-reliability, self-organizing, low-complexity wireless communication technology.
