The release date:2020/8/19 0:00:00



Welcome to the collective digital era, an age permeated by robots and AI. The trend of AI and machine learning has even infiltrated the realm of housing; everyone now wants a home that can think for itself. Maybe not the kind in horror movies, but something smart enough for you to communicate with.


What would you like to do first?


Maybe turn your TV on without having to look for the remote control? Lower the air conditioner without leaving the comfort of your blanket? Or you can find out from your smartphone if it is the delivery guy at your doorstep while you are still at the office.


Well, a home automation system does all that and more.


This short post takes a more in-depth look at what a home automation system is and why you may want to have this cool piece of technology in your home.



Definition and history of the home automation system

A home automation system, otherwise called a smart home control system connects users (home occupants) to all home devices, appliances, control, and security systems, etc. through an interface. This interface may be your computer, mobile device, or even through the web.


While home automation systems span across a wide range of devices, its first use case was the X10 developed in the 1970s by a company called Pico Electronics in Glenrothes, Scotland. At the time, its use was mainly limited to lights bulbs. Technological advancement has spurred the use of home automation systems to involve a wide range of home appliances and buildings in general.



Application of home automation technology

As just mentioned, home automation systems can be applied to almost all aspects of a home, but, this technology best use case involves appliances that require regular usage as this increases the convenience of using said appliances and energy savings. Imagine automating the robot vacuum cleaner to sweep the living room while you go for a hot shower each morning. The use of a home automation system is grouped according to the functions it provides. Some of these applications include:


1. Lighting: Perhaps the oldest component of the home automation system. It allows users to switch lights on or off, and oftentimes adjust its intensity to accommodate the desired ambiance. Some 'smart bulbs' are even timed.


2. Security: This involves the use of remote surveillance, smart doorknobs, central window locks, alarms, etc. There are even door knobs that require fingerprints to unlock. An automated system creates scenarios where all these appliances can function in harmony to improve the security of your home.


3. HVAC: Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) appliances now utilize home automation systems to function a lot better. They function by using sensors in the form of thermostats or other relevant sensors to measure the temperature, humidity, etc. of your home. The system works to ensure the optimal ambient condition are in place without you breaking a sweat.


4. Smart Kitchen: This is similar to the appliance control, but is specially customized for cooking activities and detection for smoke, gas and water immersion.


5. Appliance control allows users to switch on or off all appliances connected to a “smart grid”.


6. Other areas where home automation systems come in-handy are leak and smoke detection, child and animal care, outdoor lawn irrigation, and a lot more.
