You have heard this concept a great number of times. Of that, we are sure. But you are still not clear about what a smart home consists of. Is it your case? So, we are going to take advantage of these lines to try to present it to you in a clear way and to solve all your doubts.
At Digital Cinema we are great specialists in home automation projects. We have had the immense fortune to participate in projects of relevance and modern technology, works of which we are especially proud.
Basically, a smart home is one that has different automatisms that allow a global management of energy, security, well-being and communication. All these services, which are included in what is known as home automation, can be integrated through different communication networks, either through cables or wirelessly. In the same way, the devices control can be done through control panels distributed by the house or through a smartphone, for example.
In our experience in this field, home automation is used to automate certain tasks that we have to perform mechanically every day, saving us time and efforts by performing them automatically. Examples of this that we are talking about can be the raising and lowering of blinds, turning lights on or off, putting the heating or air conditioning into operation, turning off electrical appliances or activating alarm and protection systems.
One of the keys when talking about a smart home is that the installed home automation is integrated into different mobile devices that we have. Only then will we be managing to simplify our life and make it easier. What good is an automatic light switch on if we cannot control it from our phone or program it for when we are away from home? This is also a very interesting security formula.
In the same way, another objective of a smart home is to improve the comfort inside. At this point, smart thermostats have been a huge step forward to enjoy an optimal indoor temperature at all times without increasing energy consumption.
