Smart Home Automation System in AliExpress

What is Home Automation?

Home automation is automating the home appliances to operate automatically as required. For example, the light turning on and off itself, same goes for other home appliances such air conditioners, television etc. 

Why do we need a Home Automation System

Nowadays most of the times we are really busy with our jobs or having fun. Most of the times we forget to turn off our appliances, such as air conditioners, lights, televisions, humidifier, heater etc.

When we are at home, most of the appliances are turned on at the same time, when we are in a hurry, it is not possible to turn every single one of them off. This leads to unnecessary electricity bills.

Also when we come back home, it is frustrating to turn everything back on again. When we wake up in the middle of the night, we have to search for the light switch to go to the bathroom, we may hurt ourselves in the process.

How do they work together?

Firstly, there is a device which is connected to the home WiFi. That device receives information from three components, smartphone, door sensor and motion sensor and control the device accordingly.

The system both has an ios and android app which can be downloaded from the app store using a provided QR code.

There are two modes

This system has two modes, Leave Home mode and Come back Home mode.

In the comeback home mode, when someone comes back to the home, the door sensor senses this and turns on appliances such as lights, air conditioner, electric kettle, room humidifier etc. It won’t be required to turn on each of the appliances one by one.

In the leave home mode, when a person leaves the home, the door sensor senses this and turns off the home appliances. No need to turn them off one by one. This method saves a lot of electricity.

The motion sensor will sense if any person woke up in the middle of the night and will turn on the lights.
