The future is now: automated and remote-controlled households offer improved security and comfort, saving time and money
Intelligent connection and central control of household, energy production, entertainment and medical equipment will become the standard of the future from design to realisation of all types of buildings, as home automation is aimed at raising comfort and security while saving energy costs and time.
In a smart home, the various household appliances are connected via an intelligent management system which enables the individual appliances to be programmed and remote-controlled by internet-enabled mobile devices. This combination makes it possible for home owners, for e.g., to switch on the heating shortly before they return home from work. Smart home entertainment successfully rounds off the comfort offered by smart home systems, creating an environment of wellbeing perfectly tailored to the user.
The challenge: Secure connections and smooth interoperability of the individual devices regardless of supplier and technology
The complexity of the systems, the highly diverse design options and the wide range of devices used in smart homes may cause conflict between the individual systems. In addition, the external connection of the smart home system leaves it more vulnerable to malicious attacks. What steps must be taken to establish a reliable and secure smart home system and prevent unauthorised intrusion and data theft? The best approach is to design the system correctly right from the outset and rely on qualified analyses and tests. At TÜV SÜD, we carry out tests on your behalf and support you in the professional selection and implementation of home automation and the appropriate accompanying IT security systems.
