SMART HOME & HOME AUTOMATION
Smart home is mainly smart devices, electronic devices or sensors that you can control using internet with your smart devices; it can be a smart phone or a voice command device like Alexa and google assistant. Home automation, is the technology that enables all these devices to work automatically when you make a certain action, this methodology applied by integrating all the devices together and creating home scenarios that makes these actions based on your needs.
First, you need to decide your needs for your home automation based on your budget, as budget differs based on many factors; like space, area, devices and scenarios. Your needs may include convenience, security, safety and luxury. The first thing you may think of, is controlling your light using your smart device. Also, you may choose security or safety scenes. So, here are some of our default home automated scenes in Advanced Control Systems that we can add to your home
By activating this scene even if you are not home, if any thief tries to break in to your home, the security cameras will take a screen shot of his face, the siren alarm will turn on, all the shutters will close, the flash light will keep turning on and off and a notification will be sent to your mobile phone. Ensuring a completely secured home even if you are in a far vacation.
Safety is mainly keeping you safe from accidents; like fire and water leakage. In case of any fire or smoke, your home will open the windows and shutters, turn on the ventilators, turn off electricity, turn on the siren alarm and send a notification to your mobile phone. In case of any water leakage, all the water valves will close to avoid any home floods.
It is much easier when you say "open the curtains" rather than opening a mobile app and click on "Curtains off" option. So, you really need voice command activation using Alexa and google assistant to help you with your daily actions; like controlling air conditioner, lights, shutters, curtains and more. As you will have new friend that always will be there for you to help.
