Smart homes are one of the best and most practical applications in the Internet of Things, taking the convenience and security of the home to the next level. Though there are different levels at which IoT is applied for smart homes, the best is the one that blends intelligent utility systems and entertainment together. IoT devices can be used to monitor and control the mechanical, electrical and electronic systems used in various types of buildings in building automation systems. For instance:
- The integration of the Internet with building energy management systems in order to create energy efficient.
- Your electricity meter with an IoT device giving you insights into your everyday water usage.
- Advanced Locking Systems, Connected Surveillance Systems all fit into this concept of smart homes.
As IoT evolves, we can be sure that most of the devices will become smarter, enabling enhanced home security. We use LoRa and LoRaWAN based products to conduct the projects.
