Smart home design
The bright house is one of the newest systems that has recently attracted the attention of many builders and designers in the building field. It has caused the smart building to turn from a luxury and decorative product into a standard system everyone uses. This article will examine the types of intelligent building systems and the points you should consider while designing a smart house and building.
What is a smart home?
A smart house or building is a building whose components are controlled by various methods remotely and by smartphones. These components all work in interaction with each other and are coordinated with each other. Traditional control methods, control by function keys and remote controls, voice assistant, mobile phone control, scenario writing, and automation are all methods that can manage and maintain a smart home.
Types of smart building systems
There are different ways to make buildings intelligent. These methods evolved and became the most suitable forms. The diversity of the building’s smartening approaches means that everyone can choose the most appropriate way to make their building smart according to their needs. These methods are generally divided into two main categories: the Internet of Things and building management systems (BMS).
BMS or Building Management System
Building management with a BMS system is based on wire connections and communication protocols. You should pay attention to the wires and control panel during the procedure. It would help if you considered the smart building with BMS initially and during the initial designs.
Smart home with the Internet of Things or wireless smart home
The wireless smart home is a very new, practical, and famous system due to the lack of cables, electrical panels, and facilities. A smart home based on the Internet of Things requires no infrastructure. Even smart lighting is provided by intelligent touch keys that replace traditional keys.
Smart home design
To design a smart home, you need to consider some issues from the beginning so that these systems perform their tasks better.
Design of intelligent ventilation systems
Smartening the ventilation systems is one of the main scenarios of a smart home. To make your air conditioning system smart, you must determine your type. KCS Group creates specific scenarios for each air conditioning system. All ventilation systems can become intelligent.
Light and lighting design in smart home
Bright lighting is one of the special services of smart homes. Smart lighting methods at KCS Group in Toronto are very diverse.
Remove traditional keys
This system removes traditional power switches, and lighting is controlled by remote control, voice assistant, application and scenario writing. It makes the building walls simple and light—a minimal design in your smart home.
Smartening traditional keys
Make the traditional keys of your building smart. In this system, standard electrical switches are smartened and connected to the central system of the smart home. This method is suitable for designing a smart house with keys following a particular building style.
Smart touch keys
These intelligent keys are touch and have unique features. Being waterproof and anti-scratch is one of their most essential features, making them suitable for all spaces, even bathrooms and outdoor environments.
Smart bulbs and halogens
Smart lamps have colour control, light intensity, control of coldness and warmth and light. You can equip your smart building with this system and paint your building with light.
Appropriate design of smart curtains
Smart or electric curtains are one of the unique possibilities of a smart home. The only important thing in making curtains smart is their motor power supply, which is better to pay attention to while designing the building. Of course, if this system is unavailable, our technical experts will suggest the best way to supply electricity to the electric curtain. Also, in the design of ceilings, you should consider the placement of the curtain rail and the smart electric motor.
Smart facility design
Smart facilities are perhaps the only part of a smart building that requires infrastructure. Smartening of central heating facilities, elevators, shared spaces, and facades are all under the smart facilities systems. In the design of smart installation systems, you should use different solenoid valves in mechanical installations or the right panels for elevators, connecting the exterior lighting to the central system of the smart home.
Designing smart security and safety systems
Most of the safety and security equipment used in smart systems based on the Internet of Things is supplied wirelessly. For this reason, and without the need for unique wire infrastructure and connections, you can easily install all this equipment, which includes all kinds of smart sensors, smart locks, and cameras, without the need to change or destroy the home.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Is building smartness associated with change or destruction?
In the new building smart system and using the Internet of Things technology or wireless smart home, all smart services are done without destroying or changing the building.
- Is the smart home affordable?
Yes, with modern building smart systems, the costs of a smart building have been significantly reduced, and it is no longer considered a luxury item. It is suitable and affordable for all buildings in all regions in GTA. Modern building smart systems based on the Internet of Things are much cheaper than BMS smart houses due to the lack of infrastructure for smart buildings. Also, building smartness will increase the value of your property.
