Smart Homes

We have all heard about the smart house and running our homes with a computer. We are right on the edge of a future where all appliances with power cords can be networked using universal plug and play including:

  • computers
  • telephones
  • stereos
  • even refrigerators

Soon our computers will be able to switch on your web-enabled dishwasher. A household network using powerline communications modems connecting Internet appliances will make that possible and without rewiring your home.

Smart Home technology already exists for connecting Internet enabled devices including:

  • music systems
  • Internet enabled Televisions
  • gaming systems

and more.

In the Smart Homes you could:
  • check your fridge to see if you need milk
  • start your lawn watering system from across the country
  • tell your digital recorder to start recording from the office
  • check to see if you forgot to turn off the iron
  • start preheating your oven so as soon as you get home, you can pop in tonight's dinner
all through your cell phone, PDA or computer. How would that work? Each electronic device in your home will have an IP address on your powerline network. You can access any appliance using that IP address just like you can send messages to an individual computer.

 

Here is an excellent article on Smart Homes written by Marcus Pickett:

A Smart Home is a regular house that has the electrical system connected to a computer system. With home automation, you'll no longer be depending on switches or other forms of manual activation. Instead, every light bulb, every TV, and even the thermostat are controlled remotely from a computer database. It sounds like something from Star Trek, but it's actually becoming a popular practice in house design.

What's the Point?
Absolute convenience. Everything in the residence can be maintained with a remote control or a laptop. It's like living in James Bond's house, which is not only cool, but creates a lot of practical benefits. Your smart appliances will know when to turn on and off, how much energy is required of them, and how to maintain themselves. This is not only a handy timesaver; it is also energy efficient, which is friendly to both the environment and your utility bills. Plus, a computerized house can adapt to the way you live: it knows the time you turn the lights on in the morning, it knows what temperature you like your house to stay at, and it even knows when to open the garage door.

What are Smart Appliances?
Smart home appliances are specialized equipment programmed to run from a central system. Any domestic device can be a smart appliance, and though they're not cheap, many times they can be leased instead of bought in order to cut down on the price. Plus, they are sometimes hooked up to the manufacturer as well, so when the oven goes on the fritz you can get an immediate notice of the problem and estimate of the repair. The real beauty is that you gain more control but giving up control. In other words, this technology is convenient because smart homes think for themselves.


What Can Smart Home Appliance Do?
They can sense an electrical surge and can shut off their own power. The can sense a water failure and turn off the mains. They know when they need defrosting, they know how long to cook your meals (some microwaves can read scan-bars on food items and set their own timers), and some can even keep track of expiration dates or can create recipes based on the ingredients in the cupboard. Your house will know when it's raining and close the windows for you, even while you're away. But the most fascinating aspect of smart homes is that the possibilities are completely limitless because you can now actually communicate with your house.

Why Talk to Your House?
Think about the options you now have at your command. With the touch of a button or by the register of your voice, you can tell your house exactly what to do for you. The real convenience, though, is the peace of mind this provides. What if you could monitor your house from afar? Did you leave that burner on? Check the internet once you get to work and tell the stove to turn itself off. Or monitor the temperature from the office; then on your way home, e-mail or text message your house to turn on the furnace. If you're out of town, you can even turn your lights on and off to ward off prowlers, or arm your burglar alarm from across the country. Or set up some cameras and watch your house at any computer terminal.

Home automation is growing more and more common everyday. And though it sounds intimidating, this wave of the future is quickly becoming the custom of today. So you'll definitely want to start thinking about converting your house, a little at a time. Buy that automatic coffee maker or computerized sound system. You don't have to go crazy and buy every gizmo and gadget on the market, but by slowly building up your house's technology, you avoid being left behind in the inconvenience of the past.
