SmartHomeTab, the safe alternative for intelligent building control
What is the current status in the field of SmartHome technology?
The intelligent control of electrical appliances is becoming an increasingly important topic. A variety of switches and lamps are already available. All these devices have one thing in common:
You need a connection to the wireless router or to a control center, which is usually referred to as a hub or gateway. As a control, the smartphone is used, without connection to the smartphone control is hardly possible. This is due to the radio protocols used, usually the devices are connected to ZigBee, ZWave or DECT radio protocols. Since these radio signals can not work directly with the domestic WLAN network or with the smartphone, the detour via the gateway, the DSL router and an Internet server is used. The switches and the smartphone as the control center "meet" in the external server, where the commands are converted and sent back to the device. This is also how the SmartHome controllers offered by burglar alarm systems work. Mostly then the gateway is installed in the alarm center, so that the user does not have to deal with 2 control panels.
As an alternative to smartphones, voice-controlled devices such as Alexa, Google Home and Apple's Home-Pod have recently come onto the market. Instead of the display of the smartphone, spoken words are evaluated on the servers of the corporations and the control commands are sent to the devices at home. Every user should be aware that all spoken commands are stored on corporate servers and evaluated for advertising, etc.
The disadvantages of SmartHome controls via smartphone and voice assistant are obvious:
- You can not control the devices without a smartphone or voice assistant as the control center.
- Without active WiFi and Internet connection, no control is possible.
- And without the interposition of external servers, it also does not work.
All access data and commands are stored on the mostly foreign servers, what happens with this data, beyond the influence of the user.
