ASI Smart Home Solution
Today’s fast technological progress does not leave much to people’s imagination. As the world around us changes we must take a step forward and be on track with it. Think about it this way: 10 years ago, almost no one had a smartphone. 20 years ago almost no one had the Internet. And 30 years ago, all our families were sharing a telephone that was attached to the wall by a cord. As these things look impossible to live without nowadays, before long the Smart Home solutions will be an integrated part of every home and every facility.
Before we proceed further to explaining the Smart Home solution, we must make a clear distinction between the terms Internet of Things and Smart Home. The IoT is the idea that any object can connect to the Internet. It’s the idea that people can communicate with the objects and physical things around them. These things can also communicate with each other and then send people information on their smartphones. For example it includes windmills that know how much power is needed and when to expect high winds, shipping containers that record how full they are and where they are, healthpatch health monitor which let people get ECG, heart rate, respiratory rate, skin temperature, body posture, fall detection, and activity readings remotely and alert their doctors to potential health problems before they arise and so on… The list of IoT products can be as wide as people’s imagination. On the other hand, Smart Home is a subdivision of the IoT, and all of the things above used to explain the IoT can be used to explain Smart Home too. The difference is that the Smart Home span is narrowed down to making the devices in the home interoperable.
Smart Home is the residential extension of building automation. It involves the control and automation of lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and security, as well as home appliances such as washer/dryers, ovens or refrigerators/freezers. The top benefits of a smart home are convenience, energy efficiency, and security. According to a survey conducted in 2016, 57 percent of smart device owners say their devices save them time, 45 percent of them report their devices save them money, and 72 percent state their devices make them feel safer. Smart Home is a solution in which the various electric and electronic appliances are wired up to a central computer control system so they can either be switched on and off at certain times (for example, heating can be set to come on automatically at 6:00AM on winter mornings) or if certain events happen (lights can be set to come on only when a photoelectric sensor detects that it’s dark). The concept takes things a step further by introducing centralized control. In the most advanced form of smart home, there’s a computer that does what you normally do yourself: it constantly monitors the state of the home and switches appliances on and off accordingly. To sum up, it’s something that puts greater control, knowledge, and flexibility in the palm of your hand.
