Types of sensors for smart homes
A smart home is not only a cool mansion in the Silicon Valley, as many people think. Anyone can make their home truly smart, if the financial situation allows it, of course.
Smart technologies are needed in homes first of all, to ensure security. We will tell you about the most necessary devices that can protect your home from emergencies.
Current supply regulators
If you constantly suffer from an eternal question of “Did I turn off the iron?” - remote outlet control is for you. There’s no need to go back home or ask your neighbors to check if everything is alright anymore. You can turn off the power supply to certain outlet with your smartphone.
A standard fire alarm system is a costly and complicated business. But installing a smoke detector is much simpler. This device gets fixed on the ceiling and constantly works throughout the year. It is quite sensitive, so it reacts only to a real fire, not to a burnt patty cake, for example.
Water leakage sensors
Another fear of any homeowner is flooding the neighbors. Even if you turned off all the taps, a pipe may break. With the help of water leakage sensors, you will receive a notification on your phone about the trouble with water supply system at home.
Open or close sensors
If you overslept and were really in a hurry, then on your way to work, you will probably worry about sockets, taps and whether or not you locked the door. To be certain that everything is safely locked, you can put special magnetic sensors on the door. Upon request, you can be notified if a particular door is closed or open. Same thing can be done with the windows.
