For one of our smart home tests, we used Node-Red. It is available by default in the Raspberry PI operating system Raspbian. To access Node-Red the Raspberry PI and a smart device must be connected to the same network.
In previous articles, the study showed that consumers need integration between sensors and one single application for controls. In other words, interoperability in Raspberry PI allows sensors to be connected between the microcontroller and application.
Smart home project concepts or home automation were around since the year 1968. ECHO IV was the first computerised home automation system used for simple tasks such as: storing shopping and household finance list.
According to a study based on a report made by ‘PlumChoice’ and the ‘Z-Wave Alliance’ shows that in 2015, only 67% of consumers showed that they knew what a smart home and smart device is.
However, one year later…
Almost every home appliance that is used by residents can be turned into a smart device. In other words, a smart device would provide consumers with feedback based on collected information from monitoring.
