What is domotics

The encounter of information technology, electrotechnics and electronics that makes a home become "smart".

Domotics (from the Latin word "domus", house), is the encounter of information technology, electrotechnics and electronics that makes a home become "smart". It's the tool that allows us to control systems, devices and automations with the aim of increasing the living and comfort quality of the domestic space, but not only. A building starts to develop its "own intelligence", characterized, not by the amount of high technology it contains, but by the way the technology integration is projected and by how these technologies are able to satisfy the constantly evolving individual’s needs. The word domotic is now part of the Italian vocabulary as "Science that concerns electronics and information application to domestic life (household appliances and control systems) and that concerns the use of the appliances".

WHAT IS IT USED FOR?

Every building has routine processes where we can observe repetitive habits or similar situations that may be easily automatized. Some daily examples are: turning the lights on to illuminate dark stairs and turning  them off when nobody is around, It may also mean  turning the lights on and off  even when there is nobody at home, to simulate occupation, or automatically turning down air conditioning systems when the external temperature drops, controlling cameras and security devices, etc. Domotics, is an integrated system for homes that provides the final user with new comfort and a standard of security that cannot be achieved by the adoption of traditional systems or partial automations.
