What is a Smart Home?
Smart Home Explained
A smart home is a home that offers its homeowners convenience, energy efficiency, comfort, and security at every point in time, even if no one is in the home.
The term “Smart Home” is often used to denote a residence with TVs, heating, lighting, appliances, air conditioning, security, computers, audio & video entertainment systems, and cameras that could talk with each other that could be controlled remotely from any part of the home or from any location in the world through a phone or the internet.
On installing smart products in your home, you will enjoy the same benefits technology and personal computing has brought to mankind over the past 30 years. These may include convenience as well as money, energy and time savings.
Usually, homes do not come with prebuilt smart systems and appliances. As a result of this, homeowners who wish to install smart systems walk around this by retrofitting smart products into an already finished home.
There are basically four protocols or communication means used by most smart products and each of these protocols can easily go with cell phones, the internet and other phones. These include the UPB, X10, Z-Wave, and EnOcean. If you are using products that use the same protocol, you could add hardware and products at your own pace. This could also be expansive and adaptable to the need of a changing family with time. You don’t even have to stick to a specific manufacturer to get what you want, you can select each of your products from several manufacturers to get them at a more competitive price.
Those who want DIY-friendly products would find Ideal Smart Home products excellent. In addition, rooms are created for retrofitting, making it easy to install smart lighting switches without running new wires. Our software tools are easily usable by homeowners and you can even install them on your PCs.
One important feature of smart homes, albeit emerging, is the conservation of earth resources. People are becoming aware of the best way to make their homes really smart and green simply by making use of home controllers and connecting all your home sub-systems to it. This can help you to save costs through lighting control, HVAC, window coverings, irrigation and also monitoring usage. Monitoring systems are inbuilt in several home controllers. This enables the controllers to calculate and log usage by all devices connected to the system. This makes the homeowner aware of the usage and thereby helping him to make appropriate changes when needed. In addition, the homeowners can access the system online from anywhere in the world and also make appropriate assumptions in consumption anytime they want.
With the email and phone technical support provided by Ideal Smart Home, you can easily install and operate the device. In addition, we offer our customers the personal guidance and information they require to choose the most adequate product for them by considering their needs, budget as well as the end results they would derive on using the product.
