Domotics and IoT A Wise Choice.
Domotics and IoT A Wise Choice. The IoT world is more and more present around us and now part of our daily life.
Internet Of Things, IoT
Everything and anything can be created and controlled from any part of the globe.
IoT (the Internet of Things) is the interconnection between the Internet and objects, places and physical environments. Hence, the term refers to a growing number of objects connected to the Internet.
This is the definition that applies to this term globally on a global level. And Each company operating in the IoT world will have its own niche of connected objects and its own definition according to its own activity in the world of the Internet of Things.
Indeed, the applications are multiple and infinite from the moment you touch the objects and integrate them into the virtual world in order to control them remotely.
According to Wikipedia domotics aims to provide technical solutions to meet the needs for comfort, security and communication.
What we are calling “Smart House” is a fully or almost fully domotised house. Because this brings you comfort, economy, security, easy communication,…
Home automation applies to a set of controllable systems, in a centralized way. And that’s mainly what we approach at Voila IoT.
Be careful, we do not offer a smart house as such.
At Voila IoT, our definition of IoT would be closer to the term home automation. This is the control of objects in your home and which existed long before the era of IoT itself.
At the beginning of home automation, everything was controlled centrally with a remote control. But now everything is remotely controlled with your smartphone.
Voila IoT, the wise choice
We focus on the possibility of controlling a set of objects and electrical circuits from a central point. And it is on this point that we join the home automation sector.
Also we allow your home to be partially connected and controllable from a central point. A little like your thermostat for your central heating.
So we are in a range of 100% home automation and we give the possibility that this range can be controlled remotely. The IoT allows the remote control of objects and home automation allowing centralized control of the various systems in the house.
Complicated, really ?
Theoretically speaking, it sounds complicated. Take for example, a garage door, an entrance gate, shutters, all electric of course, and let’s add more lights.
Once set up, you have the ability to control all these objects directly from your smartphone. From a single control platform and each object independently of each other.
But where the smart house concept could be used in the automation phase ? What do we mean by automation? Let’s take another example to clarify this concept.
Practical examples with Voila Smart Relay
Imagine that you are on holiday, and you want to keep a presence at home. You will be able to schedule a time when some of your indoor or outdoor lights will turn on and off. So to simulate a certain presence in your home.
This is a safety aspect, but it is comfortable for you.
The Swimming Pool
Another example: if you own a swimming pool or spa. You certainly know that the heat pump consumes a lot of energy. In this case, you will use a time schedule that allows your heat pump to start. And this when you decide to do so.
It’s comfortable for you, because your electricity consumption will decrease at the same time.
We develop these points in other blog articles in which you can see your real savings through the Voila IoT system.
You have seen in this article an overview of our positioning in the IoT era. But there are many possibilities and you choose what you want to put in place to make it work the way you decided.
