It is perfectly possible to install a domestic electrical installation with a distribution board brimming with integrated home system equipment, but without any of the integrated home system functions implemented. In such a case, all programmed functions could have been implemented through a traditional electrical installation, which would have been much cheaper. We cannot call such a sit uation an integrated home system, as it would be an abuse of the term. It should be clear that the installer has to provide added value before he can call it an integrat ed home system. To do this, he has to start with the needs of t he people living there. Suppose that we have two identical homes, one next to the other, with the same integrated home system equipment. A young couple with two young children live in the first home, while in the second an elderly married couple move in. The integrated home system functions implemented in the one home will be of a different nature to the other. Young people with small children have totally different needs as opposed to elderly couples whose children have long since left home.
