What is a Smart Home?
A “smart home” is a house equipped with a number of devices that automate tasks normally handled by humans. The Smart home is equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by smartphone or computer.
At Talinda, we put safety, savings and convenience at the tip of your fingers. With a smartphone, tablet or the touch panel you can view, monitor and control your home hassle free. Important abilities delivered in a smart home system include:
- Centralized management of devices in the home
- Monitor and control access to your gate, front door and entire property
- Presence monitoring – control how your house functions with and without occupancy
- Connection to alarm and burglary system which is triggered as soon as an anomaly is detected
- Light control – dimming and mood lighting, emergency lights etc
- Blinds and curtain control with an automatic system motor set based on sunlight levels outside
Components of a Smart Home system
We build KNX and Zigbee based smart home systems customized to your preference. These systems are connected in a single network: Controlling appliances, security and energy consumption to ensure maximized safety, convenience, comfort and efficiency within your home.
Smart Home components include and are not limited to the following;
Blinds (Curtains), Sprinklers and Music
We all look forward to the dawn of a new day when we open shades, blinds, curtains to allow natural light into our homes. With only one click on your controller device, this is made possible at the start and end of the day. Protect your home from effects of dust, heavy rains and winds. Do this while at home, in the office or even on vacation remotely even as a security feature to make it feel like your home is still occupied even when you’re away. The motors and sensors deployed in the curtain “boxes” are configured to measure the sunlight levels outside. The curtains will be drawn when light is low/dark and opened when high. Enjoy the power to easily adjust your settings based on prevailing weather conditions.
Today homes are quite advanced in technology. In the same way, programming your lawn sprinklers to water your lawn at 5:30 in the morning has never been easier. Sensors are configured to detect when the soil is dry and needs some TLC. Sprinklers will go on until the right amount of water is absorbed in the soil. Consequently, conserve water, avoid wastage and control daily gardening.
Music and Entertainment
Your home should reflect your mood. Enjoy acoustic music set to match the mood in different rooms like the gym, dining areas and bedroom. When you have dinner guests or a sleeping baby, your sound system will reflect this with soft soothing music. Party moods can be set with ease in the event of celebrations. Your guests can enjoy your favorite playlists. During movie nights set the speakers to enjoy each scene as if you are actually in the film or live in theatre.
Smart lighting control
If most of your home’s lighting is in the ceiling and controlled by a switch on the wall, you might be better served by replacing those dumb switches with smart switches and dimmers. That’s because a smart bulb becomes dumb the instant you turn off the switch controlling it.
Efficient light control assures that your lights go off when you go to bed. If you are at work but forgot to switch off the lights in your bedroom, you can do that while at work from your smartphone. If on vacation with the family, you can turn on or off your security lights from anywhere around the world.
Our smart home system movement sensors, switch on the light when you enter a room and off when you exit. This ensures energy conservation. With a single touch, we create different light scenes for every occasion, allowing you to adjust the brightness or color of your lights to fit your mood – from calming, daylight, inviting, clean, to ambient.
Smart Temperature Control: Thermostats
The latest trend in this front is equipping smart thermostats with sensors. These are put in the rooms occupied frequently. In essence, the thermostat operates on the basis of where people are in the house, instead of triggering heating and cooling cycles based on the thermostat’s location. Typically, thermostats are located in the hallway where occupancy is rare – only movement.
Our system helps manage the room temperature in relation to the time of day or night, or function of the room. In the morning, take a shower in a preheated bathroom. Get welcomed to a comfortable home with warmer temperatures in the cold seasons of May. Heating is automatically deactivated in an unoccupied home to save energy. Remotely control your ventilation, heating and air-conditioning for a refreshing feel: Whether the outside is as cold as the Arctic or hotter than the Kalahari, the temperature in your house is whatever you choose. These automatic energy controls create a comfortable and energy efficient home.
Smart Security Systems
The smart security system is integrated with your surveillance cameras and home intercom. It is one of the most pivotal parts of the security system. Not only does it enable you to watch over your home or set off alarms in times of emergencies, but also notifies you when your kids get home from school, show you who is at the door, and enable you to give access remotely. In a smart home, the alarm is automatically activated once the door is locked. Furthermore, movement sensors at the door detect suspicious movement when occupants are away.
In case you are often out of town, set a routine that gives the impression that you are home. Even with a full day at the office or doing errands in the market, you can manage your alarm system remotely connecting cameras, intercom, and security system. This will help to physically or remotely monitor your access doors, gates, receive security alerts and interaction with visitors without having to approach the door.
Basic intercom systems allow you to speak to the guard house and receive guests. With Smart Intercom systems on the other hand, you can use the video chat feature to talk to someone in another room, or someone outside the front door, such as a deliveryman or mailman. Your entertainment can be synced to play music on the intercom or personalized to receive guests with a warm welcome message. When away from home, a notification is sent to your smartphone to authorize access remotely.
Proactive Safety Systems
Fire, Smoke, liquid leakage and gas detection are proactive measures that keep your house safe. Smart house systems incorporate sensors that can pick up these safety issues and send alarms to you as soon as anomalies are detected.
There is so much more you can achieve by automating your house and deploying full smart home solutions. You could also build it up in phases, growing over time in number of areas you automate. These systems help you see through your home safety and energy efficiency while providing comfort and convenience.
