With the introduction of IoT and AI, we all have seen a rise in Home Automation products and solutions.
“Home automation” lets you have automatic and electronic control of household features, activity, and appliances. In simple terms, it means you can easily control the utilities and features of your home via the Internet to make life more convenient and secure and even spend less on household bills.
Well, all that is fine. But, have you ever wondered? How do these products actually work? If you’re not a person with much technical knowledge then it is obvious that it all seems overwhelming magic. Lol, No! That was an exaggeration. In the article below, We’ll tell you “How Home Automation Products work” in a layman language, obviously.
Well, for starters, Home automation works via a network of devices that are connected to the Internet through different communication protocols, i.e Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, and others. Each device has sensors and is connected through WiFi, so you can manage them from your smartphone or any digital device whether you’re at home, or miles away. This allows you to turn on the lights, lock the door, or even turn down the heat, no matter where you are.
Home Automation lets you Monitor, Control, and Automate your Home, let’s see how:-
Monitoring basically means that the users can check their devices remotely through an app or website. For example, someone could view their live feed from a smart security camera.
Control means that the user can control these devices remotely, like panning a security camera to see more of the living space.
Finally, automation means setting up devices to trigger one another, like having a smart siren go off whenever an armed security camera detects motion.
