Smart Housing: the art of making the house smart for more comfort, more security, and less expense! Focus on user-friendly technology that makes life at home easier.

What is Smart Housing?

Current technologies make it possible to make smart housing. Electronics combined with modern automation techniques now make it possible to offer centralized and remote control solutions for shutters, heating, doors and gates, lighting, garden watering, household appliances, remote monitoring systems, alarms, and connected home entertainment equipment.

These solutions are grouped under the term home automation. Beyond its practical aspect, the latter now incorporates monitoring and protection systems against theft, fire or CO² detection, and energy consumption management.

Overview of a new science of housing that is gradually changing the house-occupant relationship for ever more comfort and serenity.

Smart Housing: the house of the future

A smart housing system revolves around a structure composed of a ” home automation box ” (the computer responsible for processing information and controlling actions), sensors for collecting information, and actuators responsible for physically acting on the various organs of the home automation system.

The assembly is connected either by wire or by all means of wireless control (Bluetooth, radio waves, infrared, carrier current online, etc.).

Such an installation does not require mandatory installation during construction and any dwelling can be automated. Internet technology and mobile connection tools (smartphone, tablet, laptop) allow very practical remote control in terms of security when, for example, the occupants are traveling.

The benefits of the Smart Housing:

Smart housing brings comfort and simplification of life to its inhabitants, enhanced security, and significant savings through optimal management of energy consumption.

Comfort, for example, thanks to the automatic closing of all the shutters in the evening and their opening in the morning or the coffee maker which starts automatically just before waking up.

Simplification through automated management of garden watering. Security by allowing the automatic activation of alarms when occupants leave and the ability to consult video surveillance images at any time from their smartphone.

The programming of household appliances during off-peak hours and the optimized control of lighting, heating, air conditioning, and garden watering allow significant savings to be made.

A response to the loss of autonomy:

Being able to stay at home is often a great relief for the elderly or disabled person. Smart housing provides solutions adapted to meet the specific needs of these people with reduced autonomy.

The automation of housing equipment gives them back the independence necessary to stay at home. A tremendous step forward for all involved.

Home automation technology, in addition to its classic advantages, makes it possible, for example, to limit daily efforts and movements within the home and to have systems for alerting emergency services or relatives in the event of a problem. The necessary work may, under certain conditions, be the subject of financial aid.

How much does Smart Housing cost?

The technological evolution and in particular the arrival of wireless control systems has considerably simplified the installation of the entire home automation structure.

This simplification has lowered costs which are at much lower levels than most people would expect. Thus for the installation of home automation in a new house of 90 m² with 7 openings, there are complete solutions for less than 2500 $.

More generally, adapting an old home and installing home automation cost between $55,00 and $9,500 depending on the case and the level of service.

Technology today offers all the tools to make housing more comfortable, safer, and more economical. The offer is sufficiently extensive to bring competition into play. In addition, this technology has been able to adapt to the era of Omni-connection by offering simple and user-friendly smartphone applications (Android or iOS) for controlling the system. Arguments that appeal to more and more people.
