  • Security

 mh1 Everyone wants to make sure their home is safe from any danger or attacks. One of the features of a smart home meets this demand by equipping your home with different advanced security systems. An example of this is a light detecting motion that is placed outside. It uses electronic sensors that are connected to the whole security system. It can warn the security personnel or the resident when any of the doors or windows are opened without consent. The resident can control and configure the alarm and intrusion detection settings remotely.

  • Temperature


The HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system is intended to provide you with an appropriate level of temperature, making your home a comfortable place to stay. HVAC systems can vary from time and parameter-based functions. If it is based on time, the HVAC system can be activated and deactivated at a certain time. On the other hand, parameter-based HVAC systems have heat-sensitive sensors placed outside that identify the changing conditions outside and automatically adjusts the temperature inside the house.


  • Lighting
