Home security is becoming home automation. Now, more than ever, technology is pervasive in daily lives. Advances in devices and networks, combined with the rise of social networking, have changed the way people communicate with one another. As technology evolves, so does related security. The home security business is among those that have had to adapt to the rapid advances in technology. More than 150 years ago, the first patent on electromagnetic burglar alarms was issued to Augustus Pope, who applied then-revolutionary discoveries about electricity to create a ground-breaking security device.
Tecus has developed the line of home automation products that includes the central “brain” (TecusHUB®), the control centre that operates on a world recognized, standardized technology interface protocol for communication among devices used for home automation. It uses RF for signaling and control. Zwave was developed by Zensys, Inc. a start-up company based in Denmark. Z-Wave is a standard in wireless technology that allows smart devices talk to one another. Household products like lights, door locks and thermostats are made “smart” when Z-Wave connectivity is added inside the product’s design, giving them the capability to communicate and perform the desired functions. Z-Wave operates wirelessly and securely and devices can be easily accessed and controlled on the owner’s smart phone, tablet, laptop computer or any other common usage mobile device.
How it works
Tecus Home Automation
Home automation or smart home is the residential extension of building automation and involves the control and automation of lighting, heating (such as smart thermostats), ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), and security, as well as home appliances such as washer/dryers, ovens or refrigerators/freezers.
The Internet of Things (IoT) market is projected to grow rapidly. Cisco Systems Inc., a global communications and information technology company, puts the value of the Internet of Everything (IoE) at $14.4 trillion (net profit) over the next decade. This growth is driven by connectivity and automation. According to Gartner Research, the number of connected devices in the world will reach upwards of 26 billion by 2020. Some even estimate that this number will be closer to 100 billion.
