The main trend of modern technology is speed. Now all the efforts of the developers are aimed at saving as much of our time as possible, especially concerning household chores. This is how the “Smart Home” systems were born, which allow using a smartphone to turn on the lights, draw up curtains and pick up relaxing music after a long day at work.
Specificity of the “smart home” system in the Ukrainian market
There are three ways to create a smart home:
move into a house with a built-in system;
order an individual set of your favorite systems from development companies;
create a “smart home” system on your own.
Pricing policy of ready-made systems from development companies
Home Intelligence has become multifunctional. Today, such a system can be ordered for $ 4,000-5,000 (for example, for $ 4,000 a company Smarton can supply a system for a three-room apartment). With the advent of Wi-Fi, installation just got easier. Accordingly, the price has decreased – if you use wireless technologies, then you can invest in $ 2,000, – the developers say. Smarton …
But at the same time MiMiSmart states that at first only an approximate amount can be given. The final cost of development is determined after discussing all the necessary functions, drawing up a complete Terms of Reference (TOR), designing and determining the composition of the equipment.

Prospects for the development of the “Smart Homes” sphere
According to the developers’ forecasts, wires will give way to wireless systems in the near future, which will significantly reduce the cost of creating “smart homes”. This means that the service of developing a “smart home” will soon become available to a larger audience, which means it will become very popular in the Ukrainian market.

Intelligent light can be used both for energy saving purposes and for interior decoration. The light control system includes:
- lighting control by a motion sensor, as well as using classic switches;
- lighting control from smartphones or touch panels;
- a program for automatically changing light compositions that simulates the presence of the owners of the house (helps scare off potential burglars);
- light scenes for creating interior decoration;
- automatic switching on and off the light by timer;
- economical energy consumption;
- remote lighting control;
- remote disconnection of sockets.
Even armored doors do not provide as much confidence in home protection as smart security systems. By installing the system gsm house , You can:
- receive SMS notifications when the alarm is “installed / removed”;
- receive a photo from a video surveillance camera on the phone when the alarm detects suspicious movement near the house;
- view video from cameras in “online” mode;
- block all doors in the house by a timer, from a smartphone or from a bedside switch;
- set the alarm even while in the house.
Multiroom – a godsend for music lovers. The device allows:
- automatically turn on music by timer or motion sensor;
- control music from smartphones or using voice commands throughout the house;
- set up playlists for each room separately.
If during the heating season the air in the home is much drier than the body needs, or it is not possible to regulate the temperature of the batteries, the “smart home” system provides temperature regulation … With this system you can:
- Manage the networked climate control system;
- Automatically or manually control heating devices;
- Save energy consumption;
- Switch on economy mode in case of a long absence.
