MODE OF OPERATION
The smart home controller will receive signals from sensors or users sent to the server. After receiving the information, the central controller – HC transmits a signal to the switch attached to the device to perform the user’s request.
For example: When the motion detection sensor sends the signal that means “someone moves into the sensor area” to HC which then transmits the received signal to the switch connected to the device such as corridor lights, tube lights … and they will automatically turn on / off.
In addition, HC also allows users to create animations. For example: You can make up a scene by using a switch to turn on or off all devices in the house through just 1 touch on the phone or tablet. Hence, you have complete control of all electrical appliances at home. Similar to other scenes such as reception, dinner, returning from work … for household devices.
ADVANTAGES OF THE CENTRAL CONTROLLER
Using ZigBee – the outstanding technology in the world with good security features, which can support and connect indoor devices into a smart network. Moreover, ZigBee consumes very little energy, which minimizes costs compared to other technologies.
