EIT 10 Smart Homes

EIT 10 Smart Homes

This set is intended for investigating the fundamentals of a radio-controlled smart-home automation system. The core of a smart home is a central radio interface which can simply be plugged into any electricity socket. This interface can then be used to program all the appliances used in the home. For every smart home, the following options are available:

  • Switching lights, heating and electrical appliances on and off via radio-controlled switches
  • Automatic heating control via time switch or thermostat
  • Full-scale monitoring involving smoke detectors, motion sensors and door contacts
  • Automatic activation of lights when entering the home
  • Switching lights and appliances on and off by remote control from up to 100 m away
  • Switching any appliances on or off while away from home via smart phones, tablet computers or PCs
  • Use of an app to check on current consumption of electricity

Smart Home – a term that's become essential to our modern vocabulary. For many people, the idea of setting up their own home comfortably, conveniently and energy-efficiently is gaining more and more traction these days.

But what's behind it all? Our "Smart Home" training system leads you in the right direction.

Starting from the definition and mode of operation to a complete smart home network, trainees develop the knowledge it takes to set up, start up, use and maintain a smart home network. They receive the information they need to start up many different kinds of smart home networks.

This equipment helps users acquire basic knowledge of radio-controlled SMART home systems. The core of a smart home is a central radio interface which can simply be plugged into any electrical socket and connected with the home's network via LAN or WiFi. A WEB interface can be used to connect locally with the central control system and then to program all the appliances used in the home. 

The following topics are treated:

  • Network design and function
  • Applications (lighting, shading, heating, etc.)
  • Scenarios and automation
  • Various wireless protocols (Z-Wave, ZigBee, Matter, etc.)
  • Use of interfaces 
  • Setting up dashboards
  • Monitoring the status and consumption of devices
  • User management
  • Dealing with the APP

The system comprises the following components:

  • LN - Home (smart home controller)
  • Z-Wave interface and Z-Wave devices

Training content:

  • Fundamentals of smart home systems
  • Information about various radio systems
  • Mode of operation of the Z-Wave standard
  • How to develop a structured project and also use that methodology later on
  • Overview of possibilities opened up by using smart home systems
  • Set-up, configuration and commissioning of a smart home network
