A day in a Smart Home

A day in a Smart Home To make the above benefits more vividly imaginable, imagine it is a balmy Saturday morning. Like most Saturdays, you are awakened by the tantalizing aroma oozing from your coffee maker at 9 o’clock using the time scheduling control. After savoring your espresso freshly brewed just into the right taste, you decide to go for a brisk walk in the park and perhaps do some grocery shopping on your way home. Safety is never yours to worry, as the moment you shut the door, the “away mode” of your security system ensures al areas are under strict protection.

The weather begins to swelter. To make sure the house is cool on your return, you dial into the home system to get the air-conditioning on. You are delighted to have installed the fingerprint doorlock as you step back into house, since access is still easy even when you have hands full with carrier bags - the hassle of searching for a doorlock with shopping spilling everywhere is far from a concern to you.

Suddenly, your doorbell rings. You check out the visitor via the touchscreen video doorphone: a delivery man has your latest stereo order at the door.

Having installed the new stereo system, you can’t wait to watch a movie. So with one simple touch on the remote control, you change the ambience of the entire lounge: lights dimmed, curtains drawn, and most importantly, the popcorn maker switched on, creating your very own theater. And while you are enjoying yourself, you make sure your kids are in perfect condition with the picture-in-picture mode showing real-time web videos of their bedrooms.
