Main features of Home Automation Software:

  • Voice Control
    In the past, a home automation app and touch-screen devices were used to manage a smart home system. Now home control is possible using voice commands. The technology is constantly developing, as AI systems controlled by speech learn on their own and become more and more precise. Due to continuous context analysis, they understand better what the user says. Thus, a smart loudspeaker performs tasks increasingly reliable. 
  • Intelligent Control
    In order to simplify management of complex situations, smart home systems include so-called situation models. Thereby, a case is connected to one or several devices using a particular rule. As an example, if it starts raining, the system retracts awning. For a TV night, several applications can be activated at the same time at a touch of a fingertip: the lighting atmosphere is changed, roller shutters are lowered, and the TV set is started.
  • Burglary prevention
    With remote access, you can keep an eye on your home even when you're away on holiday. The newest generation of smart home applications goes one step further. When it gets dark outside, the smart home system switches lamps on and off, raises and lowers the shutters, plays sounds from loudspeakers (e.g. dogs barking), etc.
  • Remote health monitoring
    More and more older people wish to stay independent as long as possible. The home automation technology provides seniors and their family members with a necessary support. Motion sensors, door and window contacts allow family members, friends and nursing service to timely detect emergencies, e.g. in case the person has fallen, so the care staff can react quickly. 

Components of a Smart Home System

Benefits of Automated Home Systems

  • Enhanced comfort
    Smart home systems let you easily adjust the comfortable temperature at home directly from your smart phone, e.g. whilst driving from the office. Just at a touch of a fingertip, you can close roller shutters, control heaters and air conditioners, switch lights and other home appliances on/off wherever you currently are. 
  • Energy saving
    Smart home solutions allow you reducing energy consumption by powering off home devices not being used. Moreover, smart home apps provide individualized hints on how you can manage your energy more efficiently. Concurrently, they let you customize your home to your personal needs and lifestyle. Hence, just a simple app enables energy saving.  
  • Greater safety
    Smart home applications provide significant security benefits. Safety devices preventing burglary and unauthorised access or opening have already become a standard in smart home equipment. Wireless motion detectors and water leak sensors integrated into a home control system allows you recognizing potential dangers or accidents.
  • Increased convenience 
    Smart home automation gives you the entire control over your home just at a touch. You don’t have to trust your neighbors to feed the plants or deliver mail during your absence. Using a smart home mobile app allows locking and unlocking doors remotely, so the need for a physical set of keys is eliminated. At your command, you can easily check your household chores are being performed, so you stay in control of your house anytime, anywhere.
