Talking about home automation and smart home, the concepts of comfort and energy saving that the "connected" home brings with it are quite often used. However, the goal and benefits of the smart home do not end with the concept of convenience; quite the opposite, the home automation system introduces a new way of thinking about daily home life, putting the well-being of the individual at the center of the entire ecosystem.
Today, especially following the pandemic, which inevitably changed the way people experience their home, the home no longer plays only the role of a shelter or refuge, but has become a personal and impersonated ecosystem. A space that fully reflects the identity of those who live in it and interact (with each other and with it) within it.
In this regard, the main goal that Freedompro wants to achieve is precisely to make the smart home accessible to everyone and to highlight the concept of well-living. In other words, the well-being of people in their daily home life.
To do this, first of all, Freedompro has decided to launch a line of smart relays on the market that can make any type of old and/or existing home smart. The Smart Ecosystem will end the problem of having to choose what kind of home automation system to install according to the versatility and security features offered by different systems. In fact, Freedompro Ecosystem smart relays are DIN rail modules that work through the WiFi network totally compatible with any type of traditional system.
First and foremost, it is necessary to be able to read the concept of "smart home" not only in the meaning of convenience and savings, but rather in that of efficiency and safety. Within a connected home, in fact, home appliances and connected devices can also work remotely when you are away from home by means of proprietary apps or smart platforms such as Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, IFTTT, and Home Assistant. Not only remote control, another great benefit of the smart home is voice control and management of the home through the use of smart speakers such as Siri, Google and Alexa. In short, the smart home perfectly embodies this new concept of well-living, offering cost-saving, comfort and safety solutions that greatly boost the mental and physical well-being of its users.
So what are the main benefits of living in a smart home?
First, one of the main advantages is precisely the comfort that the smart home is able to offer, simplifying and facilitating daily actions, making them automatic based on one's domestic habits. Another advantage is definitely the savings, both energy and monetary, that users can count on by living their daily domestic life within a connected home. By setting up purpose-built automations, the smart home is able to fully optimize electricity, gas and energy consumption. In doing so, a home automation dwelling allows about 30% energy savings compared to a traditional home.
Security and reliability are undoubtedly two of the great benefits of living in a smart home. Indeed, users can keep an eye on and monitor their smart home 24/7 anywhere, anytime. The function that most makes the concept of security is the important role that remote control plays, and a more secure home makes its inhabitants much more relaxed. Remote control, combined with voice control and settable automations, goes to make up another important plus point for the smart home life. Another positive implication is the user-friendliness given by the fast and intuitive graphical interface that smart platforms provide.
Another benefit of the smart home, this time strictly monetary, is the exponential increase in property value. In fact, by turning its gaze to the home automation system, the home accesses a higher energy class than a home with a traditional system. It goes without saying that the property thus acquires value and prestige, contributing substantially to the achievement of the environmental sustainability goals to which today's society is heading.
All that has been said so far can be grouped together under one major benefit that living in a smart home provides: the exponential improvement in the quality of life. The smart home, in fact, boosts relaxation, limiting (and in some ways abolishing) all those classic tasks and actions that are often and often considered boring and, consequently, carried out unwillingly. Tasks that can easily be avoided by letting a voice or remote command do it for you.
In conclusion, the decision to wink at the home automation and smart home world is no longer just seen as the harried arrival of a future world. Today, the smart home is a real contemporary reality that users can trust and rely on.
