How does a smart house system work

Diagram

A smart house system consists of several devices that are interconnected and controlled by the main device, usually a computer or phone. These devices can include things like lights, thermostats, security cameras, and door locks. Smart house systems can be used to control all of these devices remotely, either through a computer or phone interface or by using voice commands.

features to look for in your smart house system

When looking for a smart house system, you’ll want to make sure that it has the following features:

The ability to be controlled remotely

The ability to connect with other devices in your home

Automatic operation

The ability to learn your habits

The ability to adapt to change

A few examples of different types of houses that have been equipped with systems that can be classified as “smart”

1. A bungalow

2. A two-story home

3. A house with a flat roof

4. A house with a slanted roof

5. A house with a hipped roof

6. A high-rise apartment building

7. A city skyscraper

8. An office building

9 . A retail store or mall

10. An educational facility, such as a school or college campus

11 . A factory or industrial complex and even an airport and amusement park (some features might not be allowed in certain areas)

12. The entire community (which is referred to as a “smart community”)

Components of a smart house system

Just like any other system that can be considered sophisticated, the basic components of smart house systems usually consist of:

a) System automation equipment such as sensors and controllers (such as light controls), power management devices (such as power panels), and security devices (such as security cameras)

b) Communications equipment such as computers running home automation software, touch-panel displays, broadband routers, wireless access points, cable/DSL gateways, fiber optic gateways, and telephone systems. Therefore telephone lines might be required to interface with your existing phone system for this type of system.

c) A communications network consisting of the types of cabling needed to connect the components above together. This would usually consist of low voltage wires (to communicate with lighting controls and other non-essential items wirelessly), coaxial cables used in whole or part for wiring video networks (most commonly seen in CCTV applications). If you are having an IP camera installed it will use CAT 5e or CAT 6 cable for its connection in a home.

Conclusion

A smart house system is one that uses technology to make your life easier. By installing a few key components, you can have a smart home system in place that automates many of the tasks you do on a daily basis. From turning on the lights when you get home to locking the door when you leave, these smart house systems can take care of it all for you.
