Anyone here using smart home automation?

Control your aircond and lights from smart phone, lightings from smart phone and smoke detector sends signals to smart phone and etc.

Why you need a smart Home?

It cost energy to use. Troublesome. Even just on/off a device.

Because I can always remote access to my house to control when I am not at home

It is not troublesome, if you feel troublesome, your setup is totally wrong

I always read and hear people said this same thing.

For me, it is just a waste of energy and time. Doesn't really usefull. The only reason I can think of is, it is a luxury thing.

Let say, 1 day you comeback home and your lock out of battery. Either you,

1) Always carry a 9v battery.
2) Go out and get a 9v battery. If late night, 7/11 is the only answer.

wasting energy? far from it.
embedded systems use far less energy than your wireless router or the astro receiver. correctly integrated it will save lots of electricity.

The unit is still running on energy. There is nothing is zero energy. And the energy that run on this controller unit is worth benefit to me?

I don't really need to ON the aircon and light before I reach home. It doesn't save my bill this way. I doesn't need a phone to control everything. When the step to ON a device is too many and take time.

This is really my experience that I try before many many yrs.

i know it is a trend now to have "advance state-of-the-art" automatic home control, like sci fi movies....some even have voice / retina / biometric recognition n all....... but.......i can say that home automation has more cons

1) when thunderstorm n lightning (u know malaysia, tropical country) , zappp..... system fried
2) it is quite expensive
3) if u go for biometric control, ur eyes / fingers may be chopped off when thief rob u at ur doorstep
4) it makes u fat n lazy (by not physically moving to switch on something)
5) it makes u more "stupid", ur brain work less (especially when using timer control, u dont need to remember what time to ON the perimeter lights, or OFF the fan, etc etc)

there are pros and cons in smart home system

things i would do for smart homes:

1. integrated motion detectors with hd cctv cams and alarm system with fail safe, auto notification...its already available at a certain cost

2. cinema and audio smart mode for cinema/audio room....hehehehehehe
like if you wanna watch movie, just press the cinema mode and the lights auto adjusts its level, the projector turns on, the screen comes down, the amps turn on and your ipad has a movie menu

other than that.....i still prefer manual.....of coz auto gate is still a standard item to have lar
