The concept of an intelligent house appeared several years ago and is associated with an absolute technological revolution regarding security systems and comfortable operation at home. Take a closer look at this concept and see what solutions Kruger&Matz has for you.
Smart home - what is it?
Are you wondering what a smart home is, or maybe you've heard about a smart home and ask yourself what it is? These two terms mean the same thing; that is, they are all kinds of home automation devices, forming an integrated system of communication with each other. Thanks to the smart home, you can control your entire home centrally, via a special smartphone application, from anywhere in the world.
What do we gain by using smart home solutions? Benefits
So let's discuss the functions of smart home and what we gain by using smart home solutions. First of all, the most important task of smart home systems is to improve the comfort of life and safety of household members. Another important issue is to provide solutions that will save time and reduce the operating costs of the house.
So what will be the advantages and disadvantages of a smart home? The advantages are certainly alarming devices, the task of which is to warn against threats, e.g., fire or burglary. The disadvantage of such a system is very large expenses related to investment in advanced installations.
Elements of a smart home - what is worth having?
If you do not want to invest in intelligent home management with a whole system of devices dependent on each other, you can choose only those elements that seem to be most needed in your home. Below we present the most interesting of them.
The alarm is one of the basic and most important smart home solutions. The main element of the alarm system is the control panel, which collects signals from anti-burglary detectors located in the house (usually at the windows and doors). When the detector detects the opening or breaching of doors and windows, it will activate an alarm.
Such a smart home alarm ensures that your property and, in many cases, your health are protected 24 hours a day. Adequately loud warning of the household members, in many cases, deters the intruder, thus reducing the risk of burglary and theft.
Indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi cameras, monitoring, intercom
If you want to feel safe, your intelligent home security system should also have an intercom or video intercom. Thanks to this, before you let someone into your yard, you will know who you may be dealing with.
However, as you know, thieves have different methods, and defeating the fence does not have to be too much of a feat for them. Therefore, it is also worth taking care of intelligent monitoring, which includes, for example, a wireless Wi-Fi camera for installation both outside and inside the building.
A modern Wi-Fi camera with a recorder, like most elements of a smart home, is managed from a smartphone in a specially designed application. Therefore, regardless of where you are, if a Wi-Fi camera detects unexpected movement in your yard or at home, you will immediately receive appropriate information on your phone. What's more, you can rotate the camera through the application, and thanks to the built-in microphone and speaker, the device will not only allow you to passively observe the image but also you can communicate with uninvited guests.
When planning a smart home, the lighting control system is one of the basic elements, the task of which is not only to increase the comfort of the life of residents but, above all, to reduce electricity consumption. Cost reduction can also be achieved by individual devices designed to control light in the home, e.g., smart bulbs or lamps.
Smart Wi-Fi outlet
However, the most universal product that can help you intelligently manage lighting devices at home, but not only that, is the Wi-Fi socket. Such a smart socket will allow you to remotely control devices connected to it using a smartphone from anywhere in the world. Smart Wi-Fi sockets also allow you to plan the work schedule of all connected to ego devices at home. It is a safe solution, especially when you are on a long trip or vacation because, thanks to this function, the smart socket will simulate the presence of household members, turning on or off the lamps connected to it at a set time.
Intelligent heating control
Intelligent heating control, as in the case of lighting, is aimed at reducing bills and ensuring a comfortable temperature at home, e.g., when the household members arrive. Everything is done by integrating heating with temperature sensors. Thanks to this solution, you will maintain the right temperature in each room of your home.
Heating control systems, thanks to individual temperature control, can adjust the temperature of a specific room. Of course, all this is done remotely using a dedicated, intelligent application.
Intelligent roller shutter control
Another interesting element of a smart home is intelligent roller shutter control. In a dedicated application, you can plan the time of covering or opening roller shutters or blinds. Advanced systems will allow you to use the application to check whether you have secured your home against travel, and if you forgot about it, they would do it for you by arming the alarm and covering the blinds.
A mobile application for iPhone or Android for managing a smart home - Tuya Smart
In order for everything to be carried out in accordance with the latest technological solutions, mobile applications are needed to manage a smart home. One of the most popular is Tuya Smart.
It is a worldwide application for controlling smart devices such as light bulbs, Wi-Fi cameras, sockets, and much more. In the application, you can also share device support with other household members. TuyaSmart works with Android devices (downloadable in the Play store) and iPhones (available on iOS). It is the Tuya application that allows you to control and manage all Kruger&Matz smart devices throughout your home.
Cheap smart home system - how much does it cost? Price
How much does a smart home cost is a difficult question? It is worth considering first what we need and what we are unable to function without, and then make a valuation of the solutions available on the market. You can also create a smart home at a low cost by adding only selected elements, such as smart Wi-Fi cameras, light bulbs, or sockets. These devices, managed by a special application, will also increase the comfort of your life and will allow you to make savings in your home budget.
