Smart home system - automation and management from the tablet

It couldn't be easier to manage with onebuttons for everything in the house - blinds, light, intercom, music, video, household appliances. And today we will tell you in detail about how it works. The “Smart Home” system involves the use of high-tech equipment that will transform a living room into a modern space. Automation can simplify life, add comfort and convenience, and the range of functions is so wide that users trust them with any questions - from heating and ventilation to security and control. The benefits of installing this kind of system are amazing and varied. These are the already mentioned thermal control, and automatic control of lighting scenarios, and burglar alarms, and broadcasting of sound, and indication of data on energy consumption, and an intercom system. Conveniently, all functions can be controlled from a tablet or smartphone. These devices have become the most indispensable attributes of life today, so it is not surprising that they are able to turn into a kind of control panel for the whole house at once. A remote control that issues commands even at a considerable distance - for example, from another country. The two main types of home systemsautomation systems differ from each other in design and in the number of external devices distributed throughout the room. But the most important thing is the technical component, the very filling that characterizes the concept of "smart home". Any project begins with its planning, and due to its adaptability, the set of functions of the system can be very different. You can read more about sockets and switches in this article on. In practice, control systems are implemented using one of two technologies - bus or radio. It's simple: for one, you need to use wires that are laid behind walls or panels, and the other comes to the rescue when there is no possibility (or desire) to hide cables. The second solution is usually used for partial reconstruction of buildings or premises, although there are also combined options. The ability to integrate into other home automation systems is a hallmark of MyHOME () equipment. Related articles Sergey Ivanovsky, Legrand: - From a technical point of view, tire technology is considered much more reliable. But the modern radio system is quite durable and stable. There are a considerable number of objects made using the second technology and functioning for four, five or more years. At the design stage, it is recommended to conduct on-site monitoring of the quality of the radio signal transmission and reception. www.bticino.ru Bus technology Features of bus technologySCS, which is equipped with the MyHOME home automation system, are manifested in the fact that any of the necessary elements is connected to a common wired data and command bus. It is based on a two-wire twisted pair, which is able to exchange information streams and supply power. If an apartment or house is being built from scratch, then it makes sense to pay attention to this particular system, which includes a power supply unit, a bus cable, control devices and performers (activators), as well as a touch control device, all kinds of sensors and local displays. Sergey Ivanovskiy, Legrand: - In the MyHOME bus system, there are various touch screens for controlling all the functions of the automation system. On them, you can receive an incoming video call from the street intercom panel, talk to the guest and open the door for him by clicking on the "key" icon on the panel. You can also turn on audio broadcasting in rooms from an FM tuner or any other sound source, increase or decrease the sound volume. On the panel, you can visualize the consumption of electricity by consumers, and, if necessary, adjust the temperature of warm floors or heaters in rooms. You can also increase or decrease the brightness of any lighting groups, raise or lower the blinds, and also run scripts in which the state of all controllable elements of the system can be written in advance. www.bticino.ru The BTicino Touchpad As a simpleAn example of using an automation system can be considered a lamp control option where two switches are used in two directions, as indicated in the image below. This is the advantage of such innovations in relation to the traditional electrical installation - there is room for creativity, when exactly the issues of interior design come to the fore. To this system, you can also add another point with the function of smooth lighting control. Radio system Continuing to explore the productsmajor manufacturers, we should mention a technology based on radio - this is the MyHome Play () system. All devices here work according to the ZigBee protocol allowed in the Russian Federation at a frequency of 2.4 GHz. Today, the emphasis on wireless technology is more relevant than ever, which is why such a solution is increasingly being used in all types of homes due to the convenience and flexibility of use. The control devices are battery operated. Sergey Ivanovsky, Legrand: - Mechanisms (activators) for curtains, blinds or lamps differ from each other. In order to turn on / off the light, a relay switch is needed, which will switch the power supply circuit of the load. To reduce the brightness of the glow, an activator-dimmer is needed; for blinds or curtains, a relay with mutually interlocked contacts is needed, so as not to accidentally turn on the movement of the curtain up and down. www.bticino.ru Of course, the materials of the walls and the dimensions of the spaceAffect the quality of radio transmissions, because the obstacle material absorbs the signal. Always take this into account when installing. For a radio system, in fact, only an activator and a control device are needed, the installation location of which will be determined by the convenience of their subsequent use. But the main plus - there is no wires! With the help of radio technology today it is possible to controlto many: the main engineering electrical equipment of the house, lighting (both switching on and dimming), various blinds and roller shutters drives, scenarios and even technical alarms. Wireless data networks play a decisive role here. Today, using Wi-Fi, you can not only access the Internet, but also control all mechanisms. And all this can be controlled directly from the tablet. Sergey Ivanovskiy, Legrand: - The security alarm system is one of the subsystems and can either exist as a separate system or be integrated into a common one. For example, leaving the house and activating the "security", you start the scenario "I left", and the lights in the whole house will be automatically turned off. It is necessary to start the installation of a security alarm with a technical assignment, which includes taking into account the geometry and features of the premises, a house or even a protected perimeter. It is important to understand that there is no such function in the radio system - only technical signaling. www.bticino.ru Even the nuance with a sudden shutdown is thought outelectricity, so characteristic of our harsh reality. Sergei Ivanovsky, Legrand: - If there is a short-term power outage, this will not be affected. When the power supply is restored, the activators will continue to operate in the same mode as before the moment of shutdown. All settings will be restored. In the bus system, some devices can go into the "reboot" mode, but when power is restored, the system state will be restored using a memory unit that remembers the state of all system loads before power failure and will automatically restore their state after power is restored. www.bticino.ru
