Do you remember The Jetsons? It was well devised animated series about how our future homes and cities would be. The dream of a smart home is not a dream anymore. Our world has been moving pretty fast and penetration of internet is getting deeper into our lives. Thus, being connected to everyone is not just a swank but has become need of the day. We are connected to our friends, our bank accounts, even to our work sometimes (making presentations on the go & talking to clients), so why not we be connected to our homes?

To be connected with your home, there should be equipments and devices at your home which are linked to a PLC (programmable logic controller) or a Hub. The PLC or Hub, not only control those devices but it also connects with internet, enabling you to operate the equipments and devices at your home even from a remote location using a mobile app or computer. A smart home is one that integrates with your daily schedule and transforms your life.

It not just detects when a device is not needed and switches it off but also gives you equipment wise analysis of energy consumption to make better decisions. This may become very crucial towards solving the problem of Global Warming.
  • Security – of home has always been a case of concern. Devices like CCTV and emergency alarms are already seen and used.
