Home Automation Solution

A Smart Home is to define a residence that has appliances, lighting, heating, air conditioning, computers, entertainment audio & video systems, security, video surveillance systems and so on…, that are capable of communicating with one another and can be controlled remotely by a time schedule, from any place in the home, as well as remotely from any location in the world by smart phone or internet.

So-called smart homes take advantage of automation technology and modern building techniques to give homeowners a new level of control. Smart homes may be built from scratch with automation as a key design goal, or constructed from existing homes during a major renovation. In both cases, smart homes offer several advantages over conventional homes


An emerging important feature of a smart home is conservation of the earth's limited resources. More and more people are becoming aware of the ability to make their homes truly smart - and green - by utilizing home controllers integrated with all home sub-systems to increase savings by controlling lighting, window coverings, HVAC, irrigation and by monitoring usage. Many home controllers have built-in monitoring systems whereby they calculate and log usage by all connected devices, giving the home owner heightened awareness and the knowledge to make changes as necessary. These systems can be accessed over the Internet from anywhere in the world so the homeowner can adjust consumption any time, anywhere.

In simple terms, a smart home provides superior comfort, convenience, security and energy savings through intelligent control of lighting and electrical devices. Meaning that a Smart Home is to provide its home owners comfort, security, energy efficiency  and convenience at all times.

The idea of having a smart home is exciting, however it can be confusing to know where to start and what it all really means. HOPNHAT’s smart home solutions can provide intelligent and automated operation of lighting and electrical devices throughout your home. This could be as simple as installing a single motion sensor, dimmer or timer. Or integrate multiple home technologies into an intelligent control system using intelligent home controller . A smart home enhances everyday lifestyle and allows you to take control of your home electrical system to suit your needs and budget.

Safety Levels

There are a bunch of safety benefits associated with installing smarthome systems, namely:

  • Instant notification once an intruder steps onto your property:  Most smarthome controllers support alarm capabilities. Thus if you are on holidays or leave for a weekend, your Smarthome alarm system remains alert and guards your property 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. If on the off-chance something happens such as an intruder breaks in or a fire starts than you, your neighbours, family or friends find out about this immediately via SMS text message, telephone or email notifications. As soon as you receive an alarm report from your smarthome Controller, you can respond immediately so as not to waste any precious time.
  • View live video and store evidence on the cloud! - Home automation systems allow you to store IP camera images on a secure server, which may be used as evidence for the police - if required.
  • Trigger lights when the smoke alarm goes off - The best home automation systems nowadays allow you to turn all the lights on around the house when smoke is detected. Pretty important! Not possible with the traditional smoke alarms installed in millions of homes around the world - this is a really important safety aspect of home automation systems.
  • Activating lights as you approach your home - You'll be surprised how much safer you'll feel when you arrive home to a well lit property. Keyfob remotes and lots of smartphone Apps are available to a facilitate this safety feature.
  • Water flooding and Freezing problems - Certainly here in Rainy Ireland, we encounter lots of flooding and occassionally some sub-zero temperatures! Interfacing a flood sensor with your home automation controller will enable notifications to your smartphone of flooding events as they start to occur.

Save energy

Smarthome solution allows you to save money and even save the environment by using an automation system to switch off equipments and lights that are turned on and drawing some power.

With our smarthome solution, your home can be smart and energy efficient, while also enhancing your lifestyle. With so many advanced features, HOPNHAT’s smarthome solution cleverly operates lighting and electrical devices only when you want them to. As a result, you can potentially reduce power consumption by preventing occurrences such as lighting and air conditioning being left on longer than necessary. That’s not just a smart home… that’s an energy efficient smart home!

Convenience

You’ll love coming home more than ever! Simply press the “welcome home” scene when you arrive – Our smarthome solution does the rest. The garage door will open; hallway and kitchen lights turn on; air conditioning sets to the perfect temperature and your favourite music plays through Multi-Room Audio. When you leave the house, it’s just as easy! Press the “goodbye” scene to turn off everything and activate the security system.

Control

Smart home technology also greatly improves the usability and functionality of any home. You can have total control at your fingertips - if it’s powered by electricity, there’s a good chance our system can control it!


Convenience Convenience is one of the biggest reasons that people build and purchase smart homes. These homes give users remote access to systems including heating and cooling systems, intercoms, music and multimedia devices throughout the home. Integrated hard drives allow homeowners to watch video or listen to audio in any room; video intercoms make it easy to communicate with others in the home or visitors at the door. All of these smart home technologies streamline common tasks
Security Smart homes include advanced security systems with cameras, motion sensors and a link to the local police station or a private security company. Smart homes may also use key cards or fingerprint identification in place of conventional locks, making it harder for someone to break in.
Accessibility For elderly or disabled residents, a smart home may feature accessibility technologies. Voice-command systems can do things like control lights, lock doors, operate a telephone or use a computer. Home automation allows an individual to set a schedule for automatic tasks like watering the lawn, removing the need to perform these labor-intensive tasks on a regular basis.
Efficiency Smart homes offer enhanced energy-efficiency. Lights can shut off automatically when no one is in a room, and the thermostat can be set to let the indoor temperature drop during the day before returning it to a more comfortable level just before residents arrive in the evening. All of these automated tasks, along with modern, energy-efficient appliances, combine to save on electricity, water and natural gas, thereby reducing the strain on natural resources.
