First of all, a smart home automation system is a set of devices that work together for your comfort, security and energy efficiency. Simply put, the devices detect what is going on inside and outside the home or business, and respond by adjusting other devices. Therefore multiple appliances and systems can be optimized, saving labour and expense. For instance, you walk in your door when coming home from work. The sensors detect you, adjust settings to your preferred temperature and lighting, and turn on your favourite music. Another example is, say, the temperature and humidity in a warehouse goes up during a public holiday. Consequently the sensors switch on fans, air conditioning and dehumidifiers. The possibilities are endless!
Smart home automation can be installed during building, in which case the wires for the controller go in before the walls are added. However it can also be done for pre-existing buildings. At Electrical By Freddy we specialize in automation anywhere, and we bring you state of the art technologies.
THE SPECIAL CASE OF ALARMS:
Sensors are spread throughout the building. They sense the conditions that they are programmed to pick up. They then send this information to the controllers. See also Sensors
Controllers receive information from the sensors, process it, and send commands to the actuators.
Actuators are the devices that activate, switch off or adjust the controls on the appliances and systems to be controlled.
