Smart home systems aim to provide the utmost comfort and convenience in our life.
For example, the house is opened as soon as the owner approaches, and the air conditioner starts working at the preferred temperature, and even the sound systems play the favorite music tracks as well as the appropriate lighting.
These operations are carried out via voice commands or via a smartphone application.
Over time, more and more devices are added and integrated within the smart home system.
German technology expert Alexander Matthews explained that the connection range extends from a simple network socket to a fully "automated" home.
When choosing a smart home provider and a system, one must pay attention to the security of data processing, and before someone connects their smart home to the network, they must think about the benefits that will accrue to them from behind it.
German technology expert Sebastian Kloss explained that systems based on wireless communications represent an option for most homes;
Because it can be easily installed and expanded if needed, the problem is that if devices from different manufacturers are integrated into the smart home, they may not understand each other;
Since it works in different wireless networks.
WLAN is the most common standard.
Kloss explained that this network is found in almost every home.
However, for smart homes, the DPLEAN network is large and thus energy-intensive and prone to failure.
Specially developed standards
And wireless standards - which were developed specifically for the smart home - are more appropriate.
Kloss explained that the ZigBee standard is supported by many manufacturers, and has low power consumption and Z-Wave is also a manufacturer-independent wireless standard used by many smart home devices.
With closed systems from one manufacturer, customers usually cannot integrate devices from other manufacturers into their network, and this differs with open systems.
German technology expert Reinhard Loch explained that open systems have a standard that is supported by many providers of smart home solutions, for example Bluetooth LE, EnOcean, WLAN and Z -Wave "and" ZGB ".
This makes it possible to integrate products from other manufacturers.
In the future, it may become easier to use smart homes without connecting customers to individual manufacturers.
Amazon, Apple and Google are working with other smart home providers to create a new open standard called Connected Home over IP.
Kloss emphasized that voice assistant software made it easier.
The assistant works as a translator and central control point in the smart home.
This also usually works with individual devices with different wireless standards.
And in a few years, thanks to artificial intelligence;
Technology can interact with people's behavior, and automatically know what the user needs, and then the house will be a smart system that recognizes the needs of its inhabitant and manages the operations independently.
