Home automation

In the last few years, the possibility of interfacing electrical and electronic home devices with an intelligent system capable of making their use more dynamic than the user's habits has been increasingly requested. All this can be satisfied thanks to a home automation system, which, depending on the needs, will be simply expandable and modifiable at will and interconnected in the network with other devices for remote management.

We can imagine a condition of a house used as a "holiday home", where the customer usually resides. The most common situation could be that the customer arriving to the home remotely activates a pre-set scenario for his arrival. This can include a series of actions, including timed ones, for example heating the environment in several stages, activating the boiler for hot water, opening windows to  air exchange, etc. In this way, upon arrival, the customer will find the home environment as comfortable as his main house, even though he doesn't live in this other house on a daily basis.

During your stay you will be able to activate, even in a vocal way, other scenarios to improve comfort, such as sound diffusion in dedicated rooms, light variations based on the rooms, adjustment of the blinds or roller shutters based on the conditions, etc.

These systems can be based on centralized intelligence or distributed intelligence.

The difference between the two systems lies in the complexity of the components (and therefore on their cost) by distributing in a uniform or decentralized manner the ability to make choices and operations to a central system that communicates with peripherals without its own intelligence or a network of peripherals with decision-making skills that communicate with each other. The first choice will lead to a higher cost of the management unit with a consequent reduction in the cost of the individual devices; otherwise with the second choice there will be more expensive devices but with the possibility of operating without any separate management unit.


In any case, each home automation system must respond to very specific functional characteristics:

  • simplicity of use: each home automation system must be simple in its use, making the operations tailored to the user while maintaining the naturalness of the actions.

  • continuity of operation: it must be able to guarantee maximum reliability over time to avoid as much as possible the occurrence of faults and possibly simple and quick to restore, reporting any anomalies in progress.

  • low cost: it must have reduced costs based on the capacity of functions that can be implemented in such a way as to reach every customer segment
