Smart homes - is this the future of living?

Thursday, 29. March 2018
Living is becoming increasingly easier and more comfortable. Thanks to intelligent building technology, all kinds of wishes and requirements for living comfort can be fulfilled. The growing awareness of people towards the earth's resources ensures the lowest possible energy requirement for living. Great importance is also being attributed to general security. While on-the-go, you can determine whether a window has been left open. Smartphone-linked technology allows this to be controlled centrally.
h2>The pros and cons of smart homes: what intelligent housing can do

Networking individual areas (heating, ventilation, electricity, sanitary facilities) and controlling smart homes at the touch of a button or voice command that goes hand in hand with it is making living easier than ever. Sensible energy-saving measures are already integrated into the system. All functions can be controlled intelligently and adapted to your personal needs. In this way, for example, you can set a temperature at which to regulate your house in the morning and set the lights to switch off automatically when the sensors register daylight.

The right lighting for every room:

  • Motion detectors: only switch on if movement is registered. Ideal for outdoor areas and porches or the hallway.
  • Dimmers: create a pleasant light and reduce energy consumption.
  • Twilight switches: switch on automatically at a set time.

The start is often rather rocky

Many new builds are already equipped with smart home features and an increasing number will be in the future too. Easy-to-install solutions make starting off less difficult. When it comes to houses that have to be switched to energy-saving methods, the beginning is not always easy. The costs arising from the installation can be re-balanced by the energy-saving measures.

Smart homes: living has never been this simple

The security concept has come so far that fire protection, break-in protection and the protection of electrical installations are integrated features. Smart home systems are connected to the home's internal data network. This guarantees the connection between the data and system networks. The fact that all devices are linked with the internet sets interesting challenges for hackers. In this context, data protection is one issue that makes some people uncertain. Automatic alarm forwarding allows connections with external security services.

Which smart home system is suitable for your home?

You don't have to lay everything down and put cables everywhere to make your home smart. Using radio technology, it has become entirely simply to adapt lighting, heating and security to your own personal needs. The cable system has the advantage of saving on annual maintenance work. A product configuration tool helps you to quickly and easily find the perfect product.

The bottom line of smart living

The benefits of intelligent living are clear to see. While there are sometimes problems with the integration of individual areas into the smart home solution and video surveillance, these are outweighed by the positive aspects. Houses that have been smartly built right from the start are therefore highly popular and in demand. The high-tech apartments are usually magnificent new builds or lavishly renovated homes in a top location. A luxury villa with a sea view is the luxurious edition of the smart home.
