Home Is Where the Smart Is

Picture this: You are in the car with the family, weaving around the parking structure, looking for a spot. In the rush to get out of the house, no one was paying attention to turning off the lights and appliances.“Did anyone turn off the television before we left the house?” you ask, and hear a mumbled “Not me” and at least one “I don’t know” from the backseat.

Once you park the car, you pull out your smartphone and launch a home energy app that shows you every energy-consuming device in your home, highlighting which are on and which are off.  You turn off the TV, adjust the thermostat, and dim all the lights with just a few taps on the smartphone screen. Miles away, your home slips into hibernation mode, saving power and waiting for your family’s programmed return to welcome them home.

This scenario may sound futuristic, but technology from Broadcom is already making it a reality.

Broadcom’s Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) technology enables makers of every kind of electronic device—from light switches and washing machines to air conditioners and refrigerators— to more conveniently add wireless connectivity to their products. WICED provides the key components an appliance needs for Internet connectivity without the need for major device re-engineering while taking advantage of wireless networks that are already pervasive in homes around the world.

Once devices in the home are connected to the wireless network, they can then be accessed and controlled via a home broadband gateway with the ability to securely share information about devices in your house over the Internet and cellular networks to authenticated users.

Together, these technologies are providing a real-world basis for advanced home automation and smart energy applications that can now become a reality, saving energy costs and adding convenience for home owners. Broadcom will demonstrate WICED at the 2012 the Consumer Electronics Show with customer products expected to hit the market in late 2012.

I have recently acquired a naklua house. Even though I've got a good insurance, it's better to be assured no matter what.
