What is a smart home and how does it work?
A smart home is a system for automatic controlling all appliances and processes in the living area. It allows to unite all household technologies into a single network controlled by artificial intelligence.

Where and when does smart house technology work in practice?
The smart home is a control center joining all the household appliances into a single intelligent system. It allows to connect several hundreds of electronic devices as well as adjust programmed profiles. For example, let’s review the ‘No one is home’ profile that activates when you leave your house. You do not have to turn off the lights or fret over turned on equipment, because the system will make it automatically.
Likewise, other required modes can be adjusted using the smartphone app. Following the same scheme, not only appliances in personal apartments are united, but also those in working rooms, which is quite convenient when maintaining huge offices.
The smart home provides people with maximum benefits such as:
- Remote access to the system.
- Possibility to adjust technology according to your needs.
- Control and security.
Smart house technology is used not only domiciliary, but also for leisure. For instance, the multi-room system connects TVs, record players, acoustic systems, and video projectors. It allows to remotely start movies using a record player and watch them on the screen in the kitchen or direct audio player sound to acoustic systems throughout the house.
Smart home operational concept
To make the technology work, one should synchronize it with the control center. Therefore, household appliances should be smart as well: it refers to adjustable sockets, air conditioners, microwaves, and electric kettles.
Besides, smart home technology requires sensors reading out information. They collect data on humidity and temperature, motions and entry of owners or guests in the room. The smart house as a control system is equipped with video cameras connected to the control center, transferring image to the mobile app.
Some smart equipment manufacturers, including Rubetek, produce not only control centers, but also comprehensive sets consisting of necessary sensors and cameras.
The smart house is a rather expensive stuff, but this system is user-friendly and can significantly save your time and nerves during solving small household matters. And the icing on the cake: due to adjustability and modularity, it can be adapted to any human needs.
