Impact of Smart Homes on Our Lives

  1. 1. RESEARCH  The systematic investigation and study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions.  Any gathering of data, information and facts for the advancement of knowledge.  Research is a process of steps used to collect and analyze information to increase our understanding of a topic or issue.  It consists of three steps: Pose a question, collect data to answer the question, and present an answer to the question.
  2. 2. ABSTRACT  Smart homes hold the potential for increasing energy efficiency, decreasing costs of energy use, decreasing the carbon footprint by including renewable resources and transforming the role of the occupant.  At the crux of the smart home is an efficient electric energy management system that is enabled by emerging technologies in the electricity grid & consumer electronics.
  3. 3.  A smart home should provide families with a feeling of control over their lives; being relieved from breakdowns in their daily routines and getting emotional satisfaction from the things they value-identity, time and relationships.  In these papers, we explore the roles that a smart home can play for families to regain control over their lives and also the art in electricity management in smart homes & various enabling technologies that will accelerate this concept.
  4. 4. SUMMARY Smart Homes, Families and Control  Impact on humans.  This paper focuses on the dual-income families because:  Early adopters of smart home services because of increased amount of stress.  Ladies are also exposed to greater amount of stress.  Obliged to lead highly structured lives with no unscheduled situations.  No time to cook and tend to heat and serve quick dinners.
  5. 5.  Research is carried out around activities of waking up & arriving home; busiest moments of the day with: Interviews with the family members Noting emotions with the most & least favored experiences Feedback of families on the smart home applications.
  6. 6. Alerts during Unscheduled Deviation Reduced stress during unexpected weather change, traffic, unplanned meetings. Example  Parent cannot pick-up the child from school due to a flat tire & no phone signals.  Smart home pings people that the family counts on.  Neighbour is near by and agrees to pick him up.  Tow truck comes & informs the parent that the child is safe.
  7. 7. Other Roles  Reminders for deviation like reminding about things when grocery shopping or important meeting reminders.  More time & attention to family-  people get a feeling of control over their lives  it helps manage time, schedules & thus maintain individual identities & relationships  Parenting activities in free time  Peace & connectedness  Provides functional support to cope with potential breakdown  Provides emotional support to be relieved from fear of breakdown
  8. 8. SUMMARY Electric Energy Management in the Smart Home  Focuses on the Technology.  Smart Home=well-designed structure with access to assets, communication, controls, data & information technologies for enhancing occupants’ quality of life through comfort, convenience, reduced costs & increased connectivity.  Cell phones, Broadband internet connections, TV services, entertainment applications and hybrid vehicles.
  9. 9. Smart Home Roles  Two-way communication with utility grid- Smart Meter receives signals from service provider & responds with information on usage & diagnostics.  Economic feasibility- monetary saving occurs because of electricity management & also increases reliability of service of equipments.
  10. 10.  Thermal loads like air conditioner, room heaters & water heaters can be controlled by “intelligent” thermostats which can automatically learn from user behavior patterns & adapts room temperature according to arrival & departure time of users.  Household load controllers can learn load levels from devices & manage loads of devices.
