Do you remember the story of Ray Bradbury “There Will Come Soft Rains”, published in 1950? It’s about a smart house that was left without a family. The story begins by introducing the reader to a computer-controlled house that cooks, cleans and takes care of virtually every need that a family could be assumed to have.
A smart home is a convenient home setup where appliances and devices can be automatically controlled remotely from anywhere in the world using a mobile or other networked device. A smart home has its devices interconnected through the Internet, which control functions such as security access to the home, temperature, lighting etc.
We are happy to announce that we already have all these smart technologies here in Cyprus!
Benefits of a Smart House:
– Energy efficiency;
– Optimal inside temperature control;
– Environmental friendiness;
– Protection of a house from robbery, gas leak, flooding or fire;
– Increase of profitability of a property.
There are many reasons to use a smart home system, but one of the best reasons is that it helps save energy. A home that saves energy is not only going to help save you money, but it also helps protect the environment by using less of the earth’s natural resources. Saving money with smart home technologies is simple and easy. Timers and monitors make sure you only use the money and energy you want, and incredibly intelligent occupation detectors insure these products are only active when users are present.
What makes your house energy sufficient?
- Proper disposing increases environmental surroundings including natural landscape and scenery and their technical elements like underground draining etc.
- External and internal insulation, air conditioning systems regulation and under-floor heating support comfortable microclimate inside a house despite hot or cold weather.
- Automatic systems let you control all connected devices remotely from a mobile application.
One of the best parts of a Smart House is that you can set it up to be absolutely perfect for you. Have the lighting set up at just the right brightness, not too bright but not too dark either. You can set some soft music to start when your alarm goes off in the morning so that you wake up in positive atmosphere and not dreading the day. You can also have the temperature of the house kept at your optimal level. The heating and air conditioner can be remotely controlled by a thermostat so that the house will never be too cold or too hot for you to be in. Smart homes don’t just allow you to avert accidental house fires from unattended ovens. These homes also allow you to keep your loved ones safe. Security systems can be installed that allow owners to monitor the guests coming and leaving and alert you when suspicious activity is detected. Doors can be locked, security systems armed, and cameras monitored from your phone, creating a safer and more secure environment for you and your family.
Environment friendly houses are in high demand nowadays. Usage of energy efficient systems can increase the price of a house.
