The rhythm of life is becoming faster, and the role of technologies that help automate everyday household tasks becomes more important when developing a project. in this article, we offer you some tips that will help in creating comfortable spaces that anticipate your desires and save time.
1. Automation is to gain experience with Smart Home
Most people who have ever lived in an apartment or house with automated control have difficulty imagining how to return to traditional systems. Having tested various control panels, you can understand how the climate and lighting of the room are controlled in the Smart Home, the light intensity changes, the temperature is regulated and you will see how convenient it is.
You do not need a whole battery of switches to control different groups of light: control is carried out from one neat wall panel or in the application for iPad or smartphone.
2. Understand what you really want to manage
Having first tried the capabilities of a smart home, the first reaction often becomes the desire to manage all possible systems, even if this is not necessary. A smart home automates the management of various systems, but it should not complicate life, on the contrary, simplify everyday activities. Some of the changes that are characteristic of the Internet of things can have very little impact on the comfort of home residents while managing systems such as lighting or heating at certain times becomes critical.
To open and close curtains in a house with high ceilings, no additional fixtures are required – motorized curtains will take the desired position at the touch of a button, and you can choose all the curtains in the room, or one specific one.

4. The implementation of the smart home system.
When creating a smart home, a cable different from traditional electrics is used, and the cable management scheme is also changed. When creating a design project, the project architect needs to determine the location of circuit breakers and other devices, after which the engineers responsible for automation design the smart home system in parallel with the engineering communications design. After completion of the installation of engineering communications and rough finishing, the programmer adjusts the operation of the equipment taking into account the scenarios chosen by the customer and designer.
5. A properly programmed home automation system for the smart home.
In the case of use in hotels, the automation system allows you to completely turn off the electricity in the rooms that are currently empty, and by controlling the level of energy consumption in each of the rooms occupied by guests. the automation system for the smart home is properly programmed.
For example, if the guest turns on the room heating with the window open, the climate control system can be turned off to avoid excessive energy consumption. Even at night, while the guest is sleeping, the system can be programmed to slightly lower the temperature, quietly lowering the level of energy consumption.
In some cases, it is also possible to set the maximum level of monthly energy consumption, which allows you not to go beyond the established costs by the end of the month. The control panel gives users complete detail of energy consumption in terms of day, week, month or year.
6. Smart Home automation improves the quality of life.
With a centralized control panel and motion sensors, a smart home can greatly facilitate the daily activities of older people and people with disabilities. Among other advantages, you can program the automatic change in the level of illumination during the day or the automatic switching on and off of the light according to motion and presence sensors when a person enters or leaves a room. The use of touch-free switches can facilitate lighting control for people with Parkinson’s disease or other diseases that affect motor activity.
7. Integration into the smart home.
A smart home does not require an intermediate link in the form of a security company dispatcher to warn the owner of a possible penetration – a notification comes directly to the owner’s mobile phone and shows which window or door is open. If video surveillance is also included in the system, they will help you see in real-time what is happening in the room. In case of other dangers, for example, gas leakage or water leakage, the system will automatically turn off the taps and warn your customer about the need to call a specialist to eliminate the causes of failure.
Engineering solutions allow you to turn the house into a unique space that takes into account the needs, habits, and characteristics of the people living in it, and specialists in the field of integration of engineering systems will help you determine the required functionality of the automation system, talk about new systems and select the best solution for your project.
