Convertan Unsmart Home into a Smart HomeAvadhkumar MadhubhaiRadadiyaGraduateStudent, San Jose State [email protected] ABSTRACT       Asmart home (sometimes referred to as a smart house or eHome) is one that hashighly advanced automatic system for controlling lighting and temperature, multimedia equipment for monitoring and activating security apparatus (alarms and alerts)associated with windows and doors and many other functions. A smart homebehaves “intelligent” because its computer systems can monitor many aspectsof day to day life. My research in this paper, is based on a universalimplementation model for the smart home. The “Home Intelligence” (HI) module ofthe smart home, offers vital added-value to the intelligent behavior of the smart-homeenvironment.

The HI makes a coordinated situation in which the ArtificialIntelligence (AI) component can induce and appropriately respond as indicatedby changing conditions and occasions. By distinguishing abnormal or surprisingevents and, when necessary alerting the home’s occupants, the AI module cangive a prompt programmed reaction if wanted. Because the systems are verycomplex, their different areas of control and supervision, the assortment ofinformation technologies and learning mechanisms, and the thinking capabilitiesused in refreshing the information system, developers, suppliers and clientsmust collaborate. Collaboration will be communicated by consenting to secretlyexchange data from the customer to the designer through the providers. Theexchanged data will incorporate qualities of irregular occasions, which havereally happened truly (genuine life situations), and the reactions of the smarthome.

Thisdata is then broke down and utilized for AI learning and to enhance theframework’s thinking systems. Gathering data from an extensive number ofcustomers will take into consideration quicker learning and refreshing of thehome intelligence system. A reproduction framework was produced with a specificend goal to show the HI module. The reproduction outlines the learning and thethinking forms and in addition exhibits the smart home’s reactions to irregularoccasions. With help of standardization we can do it economically.   1. INTRODUCTION       Asmart home (sometimes called as a smart house or eHome) is one that has verypropelled programmed system for controlling lighting and temperature,multi-media gear for checking and initiating security device (alerts andalarms) related with windows and doors and numerous different capacities.

A smarthome seems “wise” since its computer system can screen numerous partsof day by day life. For instance, the refrigerator might have the capacity tostock its own particular substance, propose menus, prescribe solid options, andrequest goods.                            Thesmart home frameworks may even deal with cleaning the cat’s litter box andwatering the plants. The possibility of a brilliant home now and again appearsto be something from Hollywood. To be sure, a 1999 film Smart House exhibitsthe humorous jokes of an American family that wins a “house of future”,finish with an android servant who wreaks destruction. Different moviesdemonstrate a scientific vision of smart home innovation that, generally,appears to be fairly doubtful. Be that as it may, smart home innovation isgenuine and is ending up progressively modern and today coded signals are beingsent through the home’s wiring to switches and outlets modified to workmachines and electronic gadgets in all aspects of the house. What’s more,progressively home mechanization is turned out to be particularly helpful for elderlyand incapacitated people who wish to live freely.

 2. LITERATUREREVIEW      2.1Security in Smart Home      David Bregman and Arik Korman in theirresearch paper “A Universal Implementation Model for the Smart Home” says that,smart home condition is quickly turning into a reality. Be that as it may, theabsence of universal model outcomes in merchants creating items, in view ofself-characterized principles. Coordination of gadgets and user interfacecreated by different makers is practically unthinkable. So for realization ofsmart home an universal model is basic need 1.      David Bregman in his paper “Smart HomeIntelligence – The eHome that learns” mentioned that the HI makes andcoordinated condition in which the Artificial Intelligence (AI) can surmise andreasonably respond as per changing conditions and occasions. By distinguishingirregular or abnormal events and, when essential alarming the home’s inhabitants,the AI module can give a prompt programmed reaction if wanted.

Author concludethat collaboration of transfer information from customers to developer throughthe suppliers will help to upgrade the system’s mechanisms 2.      DavidGunn, James Barlow and Tim Venables in their paper “Digital Futures: MakingHomes Smarter” suggest to implement CEBus – The Consumer Electronics Bus wasproduced by the US Electronic Industries Association for residentialapplications, and is specified in the standard EIA-60013. CEBus provides anunique language for home automation functions, and uses a programmed signalingmethod devised by the CEBus committee that operates at 6.7 kbit/s.

Datatransmission can be over power-lines, coaxial cable, twisted pair, infra-red orradio. Since, CEBus supply special language for home automation, our smart homewill be more secured and safe.      Smart Home security system performs better to preventintrusions and home invasions in comparison of security systems that requiremanual settings.

This system also provides warning system if anything wrongfound. Warning alarms notify residents as soon as possible. Many ownersconnects their warning system with their city’s warning system to get advancewarning alert during any natural disaster. Fire alarm can be connect to unlockdoor and alert the local fire department 10.      MuhammadRaisul Alam, Mamun Bin lbne Reaz and Mohd Alauddin Mohd Ali in their paper “AReview of Smart Homes-Past, Present and Future” says that smart homes arehelpless against security dangers. Most security issues are identified withfeeble client and gadget validation plans 6. Security assaults might beproduced locally or remotely.

From this review, clearly most security systemsare embraced from existing methods of computer security. Pishva et al. proposeda product based security model for smart home machines 7. 2.2Inconsistency in Smart Home      Aswe are converting our old home into smart home there will be some problem whichwill make our smart home inconsistence like problem with radio range as theWi-Fi doesn’t reach all the way down to the end of the house, because the thickstone walls in old houses are absorbing the signal. We need to put things onwall in older home because we are retrofitting. In old home room’s temperaturevaries because it was built in traditional way with old technologies so DavidBregman and Arik Korman in their paper “A Universal Implementation Model forthe Smart Home” suggest to adopt few standard modules to make our smart homemore consistence.

The suggested smart-home architecture consists of fourmodules like Central Management Unit (CMU), User Interface (UI), Home Equipmentand Appliances Interface, External Communication Interface. This four modulewill make our home more consistence 1. Another issue with associated homes ingeneral are the sheer number of smart home stages and technologies. There’sWi-Fi, Bluetooth, WeMo, Zigbee, Z-Wave, and a host of others. Not everyplatform talks to each and every one, and many aren’t even compatible withothers, generating more problem 9. 2.

3The Technology is Moody      Likeany new technologies, connected home systems can sometimes have a mind of theirown. One peculiarity that drives a lot of smart homeclient’s nuts is the absence of what is called “local control”. In2 author conclude that collaboration of diverted information from customer tothe developer through the suppliers will help to make system’s mechanismsbetter.

The diverted information consists of characteristics of abnormal eventsthat have actually occurred in reality and the responses of the smart home.This Information can then be analyzed and used for AI learning and to improvethe system’s reasoning mechanisms. 2.

4The Price is too high      If someone claims that smart home is tooexpensive thanit is wrong. It is partially true only. We can spend as little or as much moneyas we want. It depends on someone’s requirements and budget. The central hubitself is not as much costly.

The issue is it can be expensive quickly. DavidGann, James Barlow and Tim Benables in their paper “Digital Futures: MakingHomes Smarter” says that, In general, the costs estimated around £1400 perroom. They are certainly higher than it should be for common mana, which wasour target to prove affordability. Costs are high in part because a wide rangeof equipment was installed which would normally be in excess of individualneeds. But individual items such as light switches are also expensive when weare looking for standard, non-digital components.

These costs are high in partbecause it is not popular so there is no volume market in which economies ofscale come into play. Many components and systems were produced and sold foruse in commercial offices, where volume of sales could be more so it willprovide bulk purchase cost reductions and multiple devices could be controlledas the same way. Moreover, the savings made in large buildings are likely toprovide a pay-back in areas such as energy saving, whereas these issues needfurther experiment and findings in the housing area 3.       Auniversal model proposed by David Bregman and Arik Korman (2009) in theirresearch paper “A Universal Implementation Model for the Smart Home”. TheProposed universal model will help to improve principles like standardization,Usage expansion and Compliance with existing infrastructure and communicationstandards 1. And due to improvement in these principles standardization willhelp to reduce the overall cost. 3.

THEPRAPOSED UNIVERSAL MODEL       MyResearch suggest me to use universal modelFor the smart home. The suggestedsmart-home universal implemented model has four modules (Figure 3):·        CentralManagement Unit (CMU)·        UserInterface (UI)·        HomeEquipment and Appliances Interface (HEAI)·        ExternalCommunication Interface (ECI)    3.1 Central Management Unit (CMU)      The CMU is heart of smart home. Alldevices connected to it by either wireless or wired connections. CMU monitors, operateand control all devices and equipment by checking status and giving commands.       The CMU using applications,software-services and equipment and collecting lots of data base with help ofinformation technology.

Withartificial Intelligence (AI) components, the CMU can manage smart and emergencysituations.  3.2 User Interface (UI)      UI provides access for usersto all devices and appliances which are connected to smart home. User canselect a device, can see status and menu of commands. Equipment may beconnected with a selected group of activities, such as lighting, entertainment,security, etc., location or any combination of group and location.

Access to aparticular gadget is liable to approval and the UI’s capacity to control itscapacities. 3.3 Home Appliance       It is an electrical or mechanicalmachines which will work with some household functions, such as cooling,heating, cleaning etc. It can be divided into three classifications:·        MajorAppliances·        MinorAppliances·        ConsumerElectronics      It will make resident’s life safer andcomfortable at home. 3.4 External Communication Interface      Connection with atmosphere, weather andany other outer situation comes in this category.

Temperature inside the roomchanges as per weather condition outside. This happens only because of externalcommunication Interface. 3.5 CMU Components        3.5.1 OperatingSystem (SHOS – Smart Home Operating System):      The CMU is reason behindcontinuous operation and control of all connected smart home devices. It monitors device’sstatus, sending and receiving commands and calls, recording events in thedatabase, and so on continuously.

The SHOS finds any suitable devices andsettle it in smart home’s environment and then use it as per requirements. 3.5.2 The Smart-Home Database:      The database is main storageof all information data of smart home environment. All devices connected tothis and data of those devices transferred and stored in database.

     3.5.3 AI(Artificial Intelligence) Engine:      Artificial Intelligence is abranch of computer science in which creation of intelligent machine takes placewhich will work and react like humans. It will respond early to any emergencysituation smartly according to conditions and environment of smart home and itsusers. TheAI engine mechanism reacts according to changing conditions, reflectingsuitable responses to different situations.

 3.5.4 Application Services:      The application services will allows thesmart home to make changes for the easy and rapid use of operating system ofsmart home. For Example, programming garden watering is much easier than handlebundles of software. 4. USEFUL DEVICES ecobee3 Smarter WiFi Thermostat      The Nest Learning Thermostat is the faceof smart home technology for most, but depending on what your home is like,it’s not blasphemous to say the ecobee3 is superior.      It is capable of learning yourpreferences and schedule, then adjusting the temperature accordingly. It isbetter looking and more enjoyable to use than the basic pieces of plastic thatoccupy most households.

And once you’re able to heat up or cool down your housefrom your phone, without having to get out of bed, you won’t want to go back.It can cost around $250.     Nest Protect      The connected smoke and carbon monoxidedetector looks nicer than the gray plastic chunk on your ceiling, for one, butit also does its job well, gauging potential dangers, then loudly alerting youif there’s a problem.

If you’re not home when something goes awry, it’ll sendalerts to your phone. (And probably cause a few panic attacks in process).         A handy “Pathlight” feature gives you alight if the Protect senses you walking around in the dark, too. And if youever get a little too sloppy cooking dinner, you can turn off any non-emergencyalarms right from the Nest app, rather than disconnecting the whole thing outof frustration.

It cost around $100. Amazon Echo      The Amazon Echo is technically aBluetooth speaker, but you wouldn’t buy one just to play music. Instead, itbest serves as a Siri or Google Now for your home, a digital assistant that cantell you the weather, crawl the Web for random info, fire up some music, setalarms or calendar events, adjust a growing number of other smart home devices,and more, all upon your request.           Amazon’s done a stellar job of updatingand improving the Echo since it launched late last year, and the whole thing issimple to use and operate. Like most of the devices on the list, it’s alsosomething to gawk at. It might bring us closer to a Her-style existence, but asa friendly, hands free bridge to the Internet, the Echo is nice to have around.It cost about $180.

    Nest Cam      It puts out a wide-angle, 1080p streamthat youcan watch from yourphone — not a replacement for a full-on home security system, but useful ifyou’ve got a child that needs monitoring. It’ll send you alerts if it sensessomething suspicious — though that’s limited to one every half-hour — and youcan also stash and access past footage through the cloud. It cost around $190.   Logitech Harmony Home Control      Logitech has been the only real presencein the land of universal remotes for a long time now, and its Harmony HomeControl is the best value it offers for anyone with a few smart home devices.

The included Harmony Companion remote can connect to things like theaforementioned Nest thermostat, Philips Hue lights, or Sonos speakers, inaddition to the usual suite of TVs, media streamers, cable boxes, gameconsoles, and so on.         Using it isn’t constantly seamless, butfor something that’s controlling up to 8 things at once, it’s far from unruly.It also ditches the IR blaster in favor of an RF signal, which means you don’thave to point it directly at what you want to control in order for it to work.It cost about $40.      There are lots of devices available inmarket which will be helpful to make our home smarter.

These are some examplesfrom those devices. These are most useful devices now a days in home.5.

CONCLUSION        The smart home environment quicklyturning into a reality. However, there is lack of universal model or standardsso vendors have to do production with self-defined standards. Incorporation ofgadgets and User Interfaces created by different makers is practicallyoutlandish. Keeping in mind the end goal to advance the development of a smarthome condition, a general model is fundamental need.      The suggested model emphasizes thefollowing principles: Standardization      By using universal standards andintroducing new devices we can increase production rate so production cost willbe decrease automatically and also we can get higher production quality.Mass-production of components can be come into picture. Usage Expansion      Universal model allows us to do usageexpansion of devices.

We can use one device for more than one purposes. Forexample video equipment can be used for entertainment, Medical monitoring,security purposes etc. As much as devices and user interfaces containsuniversal standards future expansion of usage of devices can be improved. Compliance withexisting infrastructure and communication standards      The proposed universal model is based onexisting structure and communication standards allows easy installation ofequipment in any house. Intra-home connectivity is another advantage of usingexisting structure. Usage of smart home environment can be expand by connectinghouses, sharing information and understanding potential of smart homeappliances and user interfaces, beyond the boundaries of individual homes.

        These three principles will help toreduce converting cost of home into smart home. Also old age group will getlost of benefits by using this standardize smart home conditions. By adoptingthis universal model for smart home people will fulfill their needs andrequirements.   6. REFERENCES   1       BregmanD.
