We have been hearing about the smart home for many years now. Technology enthusiasts have long talked about it as something possible in the more or less distant future. Well, it's no longer science fiction! Today, the smart home is an integral part of the daily lives of many homeowners. Home automation is used for the plethora of features it can offer to a wide variety of customers. Built-in, remotely controllable sound systems, smart TVs or projectors, adaptive lighting for welcoming guests or according to the time of day, motorized blinds, etc. Home automation systems are numerous and appeal to a growing number of people.
The smart home at the service of your imagination
At the beginning of its history, the term “smart home” was used to describe a home that could be controlled remotely and where some systems could be automated (the “automatic home”, the “domo-tic” home). However, by the multiplication of applications, an important problem was presented to the consumer: he found himself with an infinite number of gadgets that did not communicate between themselves. The scenario quickly turned into chaos!
Today, with rapid progressing technology, the devices generally communicate with each other, in addition to being able to be controlled from a single interface. Your home becomes, in a way, the extension of your body, which you can manage with voice commands or with the pressure of a finger on your smart device.
The staging of your smart home
In addition to the control you have on your smart home, home automation can pre-program different scenes and adjustments in advance.
Do you regularly entertain friends at home with a culinary experience? Choose scene # 3 on your tablet. The room will automatically brighten, background music will start playing and the temperature will be adjusted to a comfortable 21 degrees Celsius.
You don’t like when the sun’s rays shine too directly into your home? Program your motorized blinds to fit the time of day and let in only the ideal amount of light.
In the mood for a little romance? Scene # 4 – candlelight dinner – will ignite your electric fireplace, dim the lights and play Debussy’s fluid and controlled fingering from your built-in speakers.
