Do you know Iron Man’s house? You can have an EQUAL!
There are objects that are desired by men. A Ferrari is a good example. Women also have their consumption dreams. Jewels are one of them. Now, Tony Starck’s home, Iron Man, is an ambition of all sexes in existence today. And the good news is that you can have an equal. Jundiaí Agora – JA – interviewed Lucas Bachi (photo below), 26, owner of Concept House, a company specialized in home automation. “Concept House arose from the desire to undertake and realize a great passion that I have had since I was a child, which is home automation, together with the desire to help people find, through technology, greater comfort and entertainment for their life”, explains.
What are “Smart Homes”?Home Automation, or smart home, is the use of technology to facilitate day-to-day tasks, whether in your home or office, making automatic some habitual tasks that in a conventional environment would be in charge of the residents, leaving more free time to enjoy the comfort of home. Through the integration between the various electronic and electrical devices it is possible to control your home from your tablet or smartphone, by gestures or voice commands and thus trigger scenes, which are sets of actions, or pre-programmed tasks that will be performed automatically, making your home really smart.
How does it work in practice?It is possible to automate specific things like lighting (on / off, color, intensity control), air conditioning, audio and video equipment (TV, DVD, Receiver, SKY, NET, Sound, etc…), motorized curtains and awnings, projectors, screens, irrigation, on / off equipment (coffee maker, toaster, etc …), cameras, alarm, access control, lock, sensors (gas, flood, motion detection, door / window, light, temperature, humidity , air quality, etc …), touchscreen switches, motorized furniture, energy management (how much and where it is being spent), water management (how much is being spent – allows detection of any leak, etc …). There are many other actions and equipment: – Dinner Scene: Adjusts the lighting (turns off unwanted circuits and lowers others’ lighting to 50%), turns on the sound in the desired music, closes the curtains for more privacy and turns on the air conditioning. – Movie Scene: Go down the projector and screen, turn on the SKY and your sound system, put on the desired channel and at the appropriate volume, close the curtain and turn on the air conditioning. – Scene leaving home: turns off all lighting and equipment in your home. – Cena got home: turn on lighting, TV, NET and put it on the sports channel. – Wake up scene: open the curtains to wake up with ambient lighting, turn on an ambient sound at a low volume and prepare your coffee. Automatic scenes: – Every time your child gets home, take a picture of him and send it to your email and a notification to your cell phone. – Every time your maid gets home she sends notification to your cell phone. – Simulation of presence for when you travel that will give the impression of having people at home, turning lights on and off, television and opening and closing curtains. – Irrigation: irrigates your garden twice a week (except when the forecast is rain – hence the system identifies and does not care not to waste water unnecessarily). – Security (alarm): detects invasion and makes the house “crazy”, leaves the lights blinking, turns on the TV, maximum volume and sends notification to your cell phone. – If your older parents / grandparents do not open the medicine drawer at the required time, send notification to your cell phone Benefits of automation: comfort, safety, economy, protection, accessibility, practicality, entertainment, sustainability, property valuation. It looks like a movie thing. Give examples of films / drawings in which smart houses appear to facilitate the reader… It is true. The concept of ‘smart homes’ has been explored in designs like the Jetsons and also in Iron Man.
Is it a recent concept?No. Home automation has been around for a long time, however, what used to be seen as “luxury” or just for status – even due to the investment that was necessary – today is starting to be seen differently, with the popularization of the concept and with the fall in investment. According to data from last year, from Portal G1, automated systems are 50% cheaper than 5 years ago.
Are there many houses of this type in the Jundiaí region?I can’t say …
Is it expensive?It depends. From R $ 1,500 reais you can already do something in an environment such as lighting control, air conditioning, audio and video equipment, applications on mobile phones and tablets. But depending on the number of environments, equipment to be automated and the intelligence that the system needs to have, it can also reach 100,000 reais. It is interesting to make an analysis comparing with the total cost of the house, in which you invest something of 1-3% in home automation system to have a totally differentiated house which will add even more value to your property. It is important to highlight that the cost of infrastructure is low and it is much more advantageous to do the entire project and infrastructure during the work of the house, especially when it involves audio and video. But for homes already built, it is also possible to do it wirelessly, without the need for renovations.
For those who like it and already have a home, is it possible to make it smart or is it only applicable to houses under construction?Fully possible through wireless systems, with the same reliability as a wired system.
Is it a long process?It depends on the level and complexity of the project. In a new house, under construction, automation is the first to enter and the last to leave, following and depending on all other steps. For new homes, installation can take just one day as well as a week.
Is there an expectation when all houses will be smart?According to a recent report, the global home automation market, which was valued at around $ 5 billion in 2014, is expected to reach $ 21 billion by 2020. This represents a compound annual growth rate of almost 25% between 2015 and 2020 The graph below gives an idea of how automation is doing in the rest of the world. Brazil has a huge market for this area …
