During repair, husband came up with the idea of home automation. Those of you who already already interested in this question know that in fact the smart house is divided into 3 categories:
1) wire (KNX),
2) the Designer do it yourself (like arduino),
3) Wireless (like Zigbee)
1st option is the most costly in price and requires a major overhaul. In short you need stroebe wall and lay the cable from the panel to each device in the house. Average check of 1.5 million rubles.
2 city with the cheapest but most time consuming. Husband considered what to do lighting control in a house on the Arduino system will cost 15 thousand rubles. But for this you need to fully install the system in the transaction. And for it to configure, you also need a management application to write to the device from China will go for 2 months. Then I rebelled, to delay the repair for 4 months, it is no good, shallow variant.
Rummaging through the Internet we found a variant of the Smart home is acceptable for the price and quality, this is the 3rd option. The main argument for buying this system was the fact that she has all of the features which we need. Price missed less than 50 thousand rubles.
Smart home of Wulian brand based on the wireless communication Protocol Zigbee. For installation no need to pull wires. And the fact that there is a free app for settings.
Smart house we ordered from the store in Ufa.
It's a few boxes and installation instructions.
How did the setting of the Smart home.
Stage 1 Installation of sensors.
Some sensors stick to the magnets.Some we have installed double sided tape and screws.
There are devices such as switches, relays and controller of curtains that need to insert an electrician, you need to remove the old switches and put in their place "Smart".
All devices communicate among themselves using the gateway, the black box in the photo. It is necessary to connect the Internet cable and to plug it in.
Stage 2 setting script pickup devices
Downloaded the app from the app store for ipad and Google play for Android phones.
In the application I had to dig, apparently the flaws in the translation, is not immediately clear instructions, finally figured out.
First, start an account within the app, to do this, scan the barcode on the gateway.
To add devices to the system gateway, you need 4 times to press the Set button on each, then gateway them "see" and "will".
When all devices are added, we begin to create scenarios of triggering devices. For example:
The result, after 3 weeks of use:
And generally the smart house is cool, frees your hands, helps you keep your children and impress the guests.
To the application it is necessary to get used to, there are things that confuse. For example, sometimes if you create a new script with the devices which is already the scenario the previous scenario no longer true. Have not figured out, the support helped to set up.
Sooo cool worth the money! Husband is happy, kids are happy.
