Automation is increasingly being introduced into the daily life of modern people. And if earlier automated production could be considered the pinnacle of progress, now even living conditions, an apartment or a private house, can be radically improved quite simply by implementing the concept of a smart home.

Indeed, today connected home systems are tailored not only to optimize energy costs but first of all – to make a person’s life more comfortable. The possibilities of modern high-tech systems for homes will be discussed in this article.

To combine home theater, lighting control, water supply, video surveillance system, climate control, security, fire alarm, power supply, access control, gas supply, and multi-room into one system – this is the task that the smart home system solves today. In addition to this, you can purchase ready-made automated solutions such as the Progressive desk for ergonomic home office or automated hidden kitchen cabinets to make your kitchen look uncluttered and modernized.

All the automation ideas are unique and exciting in their own way, as you can experiment depending on the space you have, the design, and individual preferences.

What Modern Automation Systems Can Do

Let’s go through each of the points in sequence, and consider what contemporary intelligent installations can do in relation to our everyday life

Climate control

The microclimate of public and residential premises affect our performance greatly, and health in general as well. The conditions of the air environment in the premises vary depending on the modes of operation of the climatic equipment. Heating and ventilation equipment, lighting equipment, other devices – all this together has a certain total effect on the human body, on well-being, and ultimately on health. So technology is getting more and more complex to meet our demands.

Automated systems allow us not only to quickly control and manage all this equipment but ultimately take care of our health. With the help of sensors, the current state of the air in the room is monitored, the operating modes of air conditioners and supply ventilation, underfloor heating including other types of heating are adjusted through the control panel. That is, the climate is adjusted automatically to the requirements of a person, which are set by preliminary settings.

Lighting control

What could be a more expressive sign of the intelligence of a smart home system than smart lighting control? This kind of lighting is truly smart and therefore economical. Electricity resources in an apartment, house, or office are used as economically as possible, without unnecessary extravagance.

The advantage of an automated lighting control system is that, based on data from external and outdoor lighting sensors, as well as timer data, it allows you to turn on and off the light of the desired brightness and only where it is really needed. In addition, light scenes open up a wide scope for creativity. In addition, the option to simulate the presence of the owners is available.

Energy management

The modern “smart home” system is a complex of technologies for comfort, safety, and efficiency. Stability is ensured by the integration of uninterruptible power supplies in the event of a centralized power outage so that the electronics remain operational at all times.


For a long time, you will not surprise anyone with a home theater. But to control sound and video from different places, as well as stereo systems located throughout the apartment – these functions are just implemented using the “smart home” system.

The home cinema is connected to an automated system, and the whole complex of multimedia equipment, together with auxiliary devices, is harmoniously integrated into the apartment. There can be several sources of sound and video, and they can be multi-channel: speakers, receivers, plasma panels, projectors – everything is controlled directly or remotely from anywhere in the room.

You can watch movies and shows, listen to music in all rooms or just a few, program a scenario, and activate it with one button from the touch panel or from the remote control. The program of the scenario can be entered into individual conditions: the blinds are closed, the light goes out or becomes less intense, the plasma panel turns on, the projector moves forward, and the player starts.

It’s possible to provide changes in the scenario programs, and set them according to the time you need so they work automatically, as well as set up the related configuration for watching movies, for example, turn on the air conditioner near the place where the home theater is installed if the weather is hot.
