When designing a new house or renovating an old one, the idea that the house is equipped with a smart system today is inevitable. These systems can provide the comfort and safety for its residents and last but not least, save energy.

In the market, more and more intelligent home systems appear, but they support only a small part of the required functions. If there is a system that has the right configuration and is suitable for the customer, the cost of the purchase for most of these systems – for an average user – is very high.

In my dissertation, I list what functions are typically needed for a smart home system. After sorting out these features, I look for a solution that suits today’s requirements, at a reasonable price. As a starting point, it should be noted that the system must be in accordance with new trends, the user must be able to control the system from a smartphone as well as from a browser. In addition, it is important to point out that existing home systems, such as alarms, must be able to be integrated into the system.

During planning and implementing, I pay close attention to the fault tolerance of the system. High priority should be given to providing the user with immediate notice of the errors and, if the system is able to resolve it, resolve the issue automatically.

As a result of the development, the smart home system will hopefully incorporate the priorities listed above and thus will be an accessible and yet effective tool for residents of newly built or renovated homes.
