10 tips to get best home automation

10 steps to getting the best home automation system you really need and not the one I tell you you need.

1. Think about your daily activities.

What do you do, repeatedly, though out the day or week? Shut off lights, check to see if your doors are locked, open and close the drapes, start a TV show in the living room and finish it in the bedroom, listen to music in the backyard, adjust thermostat, throw big parties… All of those things can be done better or enhanced with an automation/control system.

Don’t think that automation is for lazy people. An automation system doesn’t empower a person to sit around on the sofa while robots do things for them. It allows you to live your life more efficiently by automating and monitoring some of the more mundane and routine activities, freeing you up for more important and valuable activities.

2. Know what’s available.

If you want your breakfast cooked and waiting for you on the kitchen table when you wake up, then hire a cook. If you want to be able to intelligently manage your movie and music collection, enable easier access to your lights, or always know when your kids come home from school, then get an automation system. Often people are surprised at some of the options available, or if they’ve heard about them, they’re surprised at how useful they can be. We hear all the time that automated lighting is one of those things that once you’ve tried it, you don’t know how you managed without it.

3. Think about what your time is worth and what you’re willing to invest to get more out of it.

While there are many DIY options in this market , most of those require time, as well as differing levels of networking or construction know-how. Do you want to put that time into learning and installing or do you want to come home from work and find it all finished?

4. Read Electronic House articles.

Well, of course. professional articles offer lots of advice and tips on systems, designs and issues. It can offer inspiration for your home project.

5. Visit one or more professionals to explain your needs and learn about their offerings.

This is important. Have the integrator show you the systems offered (some integrators use their own homes for client demonstrations, which is really useful to see how these systems actually function in a house) and explain the process. Find out how the integrator can make your dream house come true.

6. Consider remote access.

Do you want to be able to check in on your house when you’re away? Do you want to be able to open the front door from another city? These are great new features available with many control systems.

7. Think about the future—expansion options.

Be sure to discuss scalability with your integrator. Most home control clients end up going back to their integrator at some time with additional projects, so make sure the system you select is one that can be built upon.

8. Select the products and services with your installer.

This where it starts to get fun–picking out what you want.

9. Get out of the way.

When that truck rolls up in your driveway, it’s best to get out of the way. Don’t be that person who leans over the installer’s shoulder all day long.

10. Learn the system and enjoy.

When the work is finished, and the installer puts the remote, touchpad, iPad… in your hand, pay attention to how the system operates. Make sure everyone in the family can use it, then sit back, press some buttons and enjoy.

XHY Showroom introduction

XHY intelligence showroon
XHY intelligence showroon

This is the showroom we builded at Shenzhen office. The main porpuse of the showroom is to exhibit what zigbee home automation system can do for your house.

1. Door

Smart door lock had been mounted, user can remote control it via APP, open close via finger print, passcode, card and keys. In the APP, it provide logs for user to check also.

2. Gateway

We put the gateway between bed and sofa, because it’s the good position for signal transmittion. User would have good wifi signal both in bedroom and living room.

3. Dimmer

There are two pcs dimmers in showroom, first one is installed near to TV area, user maybe need different atmosphere to watch different movies. Second one is intalled in living room ( Sofa area), when we have visiter or party, it will be very useful.

4. Relay

We used 10pcs relay in showroon for bathroom lights, bar light, bedroom light, living room lights, closet light, backgroud lights.  User maybe doesn’t need too many relays, so we provide three different types relays for optional.  The design concept is same with dimmer, we can create various atomsphere based on demands.

5. Socket

3pcs sockets we used in showroom for table lamp, coffee machine, owen. Actually, it can be used for wash machine also. But our boss doesn’t want to see that staff wash clothes in office.

6. Curtain motor and trail

We used one pc curtain motor and 2 pairs curtain trail for the big windows. As you see, it’s not easy job to pull on/off curtains by hands everyday.

7. Remote controller

It’s available for TV/AC to turn on/off. Open/close curtian, turn on/off lights. If you are tired to stare tablelt or mobile phone everyday, remote controller is best choice. And what if your house without any internet? You can’t control all devices by APP, remote controller is the best way to sovle this problem.

8. Multi-Sensor

We mounted 2pcs motion sensors on door, window; and set program for the sensor on door. The program details:  when someone into the door and triggered the sensor, then the lights in living room will turn on automaticlly. Triggered again to turn off lights automaticlly.  You can set trigger conditions by yourself in APP too. E.g.: if anyone broked window glass into house, multi-sensor alert user via app, warm breaker via alarm beep sound, or turn on all lights in night.

9. SOS button

The design concept is almost same with multi-sensor, becuase it belong to intrusion alarm system. Gas detector, infrared detector, open/closed detector are parts of intrusion alarm system.

10. PTZ Camera

There are two pcs camera, one mounted near to door, another mounted near to bedroom (baby monitor). You can check the video anytime, monitor your house anywhere.

11. Scence control

You can control many devices (e.g. lights, curtain, TV, AC) by one botton, you can program it with In home mode and Away home mode.

If you want more than that, please contact with us free.

What’s the home automation and how does it work?

home automation

Home automation gives you access to control devices in your home from a mobile device anywhere in the world.

Until fairly recently, automated central control of building-wide systems was found only in larger commercial buildings and expensive homes. Typically involving only lighting, heating and cooling systems, building automation rarely provided more than basic control, monitoring and scheduling functions and was accessible only from specific control points within the building itself.

Home automation is a step toward what is referred to as the “Internet of Things,” in which everything has an assigned IP address, and can be monitored and accessed remotely.

Automation

Automation refers to the ability to program and schedule events for the devices on the network. The programming may include time-related commands, such as having your lights turn on or off at specific times each day. It can also include non-scheduled events, such as turning on all the lights in your home when your security system alarm is triggered.

Once you start to understand the possibilities of home automation scheduling, you can come up with any number of useful and creative solutions to make your life better. Is that west-facing window letting in too much light? Plug your motorized blinds into a “smart” outlet and program it to close at noon each day. Do you have someone come by at the same time each day to walk the dog? Program your home automation system to unlock the front door for them, and lock it up again when they’re done.

Remote Control

The other main characteristic of cutting-edge home automation is remote monitoring and access. While a limited amount of one-way remote monitoring has been possible for some time, it’s only since the rise in smartphones and tablets that we’ve had the ability to truly connect to our home networks while we’re away. With the right home automation system, you can use any Internet-connected device to view and control the system itself and any attached devices.

The real hands-on control comes in when you start interacting with the home automation system from your remote app. In addition to arming and disarming your security system, you can reprogram the scheduling, lock and unlock doors, reset the thermostat and adjust the lights all from your phone, from anywhere in the world. As manufacturers are creating more and more “smart” devices and appliances all the time, the possibilities for home automation are virtually limitless.

Home Automation Components

What kinds of things can be part of a home automation system? Ideally, anything that can be connected to a network can be automated and controlled remotely.

Manufacturers have produced a wide variety of “smart” devices, many of which are full of innovative features but few of which offer the kind of integration needed to be part of a complete home automation system. Much of the problem has been that each manufacturer has a different idea of how these devices should be connected and controlled. So while you may have a “smart” TV, washing machine, refrigerator, thermostat, coffee maker or any of the other Internet-ready household devices on the market, the end result is usually a separate control scheme for each device.

In the near future, home automation may be standardized to let us truly take advantage of all of these additional possibilities. For the time being, the home security providers that specialize in home automation have focused on the most critical and useful parts of a connected home. At a basic level, this means the doors and windows and environmental devices (thermostat, smoke detectors, temperature, humidity, fire and carbon dioxide sensors) that keep you safe and comfortable. For additional real-time security, convenience and control, home automation systems from security providers should also include options for video cameras. With the best systems, you’ll also be able to include lights and individual electrical outlets into your home automation package.

Energy Efficiency

One clear advantage of home automation is the unmatched potential for energy savings, and therefore cost savings.

At the most basic level, home automation extends that scheduled programmability to lighting, so that you can suit your energy usage to your usual daily schedule. With more flexible home automation systems, electrical outlets or even individual devices can also be automatically powered down during hours of the day when they’re not needed. As with isolated devices like thermostats and sprinkler systems, the scheduling can be further broken down to distinguish between weekends and even seasons of the year, in some cases.
