IoT And Smart Home Automation: The Way Forward To Indian Real Estate

Akash Kohli, Founder & CEO - Elante GroupIn the Indian real estate portfolio smart home automation and IoT are generating a lot of buzz. With the growing number of smart homes and connected devices, new potential buyers want their everyday lives made easier, healthier and more convenient.

Facility and usability are what make smart home systems so attractive, as it becomes easier to handle further activities when they are linked to one another. With the aid of IoT smart home devices, energy and cost reduction becomes simple, all the while saving time.

Speculations are made, as in the post-COVID scenario that the Indian smart home market will boom at rapid pace. Today, these smart home devices range from things like smart kettles, refrigerators, and dryers to air conditioners and a variety of surveillance and monitoring devices, such as alarm systems and circuit safety cameras.

Home automation allows you access to your home control systems from anywhere in the world, from a mobile device. The word can be used for independent programmable devices, such as thermostats and sprinkler systems, but home automation more accurately defines homes where almost all — lighting, appliances, electrical outlets, heating and cooling systems — is linked to a network that can be remotely regulated.

This also includes the alarm system from a home security viewpoint, including all the doors, windows, alarms, smoke detectors, surveillance cameras and any other devices that are related to it.

The programming of home automation can include time-related commands, such as making the lights switch on or off at particular times every day. It can also involve non-scheduled activities, such as turning on all the lights in your home when you activate your security system alarm.

When you begin to grasp the possibilities of scheduling home automation, you will come up with a range of useful and innovative ways to make your life easier.

With the right home automation system, you can monitor and control the system itself and any attached
devices using any Internet-connected computer.

Monitoring apps will provide you with a wealth of knowledge about your house, from the latest state of the moment to a comprehensive overview of what has happened so far. You can check the status of your safety system, whether the lights are on, if the doors are closed, what your home's current temperature is, and much more.

You can also pull up real-time video feeds with cameras as part of your home automation device, and literally see what's going on in your home while you're away.

Although basic alerts can serve many important roles. Whenever your protection system detects a possible problem, from extreme weather notifications to motion detector warnings to fire alarms, you can configure your device to give you a text message or an email.

You can also get informed of more boring activities, including programming your "smart" front door lock to let you know when your child returns from school.

When you start communicating with the home automation device from your remote app, the actual hands-on control comes in. You can reprogram the routing, lock and unlock doors, reset the thermostat and change the lights all from your computer, from anywhere in the world , in addition to arming and disarming your safety device.

As manufacturers are continually producing more and more "smart" gadgets and appliances, home automation possibilities are nearly boundless.

Manufacturers have created a wide range of "smart" devices, many of which are full of revolutionary features but few of which provide the sort of functionality required to be part of a complete home automation system. Most of the issue has been that each producer has a different idea of how to attach and manage these devices.

Home automation could be standardized in the near future to enable us to fully take advantage of all these additional possibilities. The home security vendors specializing in home automation have been concentrating on the most important and valuable aspects of a wired home for now.

This means the doors and windows and environmental devices (thermostat, smoke detectors, sensors for temperature, humidity, fire and carbon dioxide) that keep you safe and comfortable at a basic level.

The unmatched capacity for energy efficiency is one strong benefit of home automation, and therefore cost savings. Your thermostat is already "smart" in the sense that it uses a level of temperature to control the heating and cooling system in the house.

In most cases, thermostats can also be configured with various target temperatures to keep energy use to a minimum during the hours when the heating and cooling is less likely to support you.

We want to make our lives easier so that we can focus on more important things and peacefully enjoy our lives. Home automation technologies are capable of making us more relaxed in or outside our homes. As being a potential realtor, we spirit see a great potential in home automation technologies and believe that this boom in IT will change the Indian Real Estate sector forever which will be highly beneficial for the end customer in long run.
