5 Core Technology Influencing Home Automation


5 core technology influencing home automation

The development of home automation is bringing us an easier life. In this article, we will try to analyze 5 core technology influencing home automation. Hardware products in the system need to be really useful and convenient for people. New technology needs to emerge into hardware.

Wireless Communication Technology

There are many wireless communication technologies. At present, the wireless communication technology solutions that have been successfully applied in the home automation field mainly include Radio Frequency technology, VESP protocol, IrDA infrared technology, HomeRF protocol, ZigBee standard, Z-Wave standard, Z-world standard and X2D technology, etc. The main advantages of wireless technology solutions: No need for rewiring. The installation is convenient and flexible. The network can be expanded or modified at any time according to actual needs. It’s a suitable installation way for users who are newly renovated.

Wireless communication technology getting more and more applications in home automation. It’s a very important core technology influencing home automation.

HyperTransport Technology

As an earlier core technology influencing home automation, HyperTransport technology is the foundation of various traditional home automation solutions.


It’s a technology originating from the EU that was introduced into China in 1999. KNS/EIB technology has been widely used in Europe for nearly 20 years. KNX / EIB technology is a mature technology. The feature: Flexible functional configuration structure for easy control of various functional modules.


It’s a fully distributed intelligent network control technology for family use, which originated in China.


Controller area network. It’s a serial data communication bus developed by German BOSCH in the early 1980s to solve the data exchange between control and test instruments. It is a Fieldbus technology get very widely applied worldwide.


RS-485 Bus is widely used in video surveillance, access control intercom, building alarm, building intelligent control and other fields due to its simple wiring, stability and reliability.

Power-line Carrier Communication technology

Power-line Carrier Communication Technology makes full use of the existing power grid. Its transmit and control: Modems are used at both ends. The 50Hz AC is directly used as the carrier wave. The hundreds of kHz pulses are used as the signal modulation signal. It’s a new core technology influencing home automation.

Big Data technology

Home automation involves multiple sectors as it’s a network in IoT. Big data is generated from connected IoT devices. That’s strong support for the development of home automation. Big data training is a process from perception to cognition. Big data is the commanding height of all intelligent hardware development. It can help hardware manufacturers to explore user behavior and establish user portraits.

For hardware manufacturers, we are so eager for launching production according to users’ customized needings. In the past, this was very difficult because we had very poor data. Nowadays, the situation is changed a lot with big data support. We can optimize product strategies and do efficient market testing with big data support. We can even provide personalized discounts for different users, and increase secondary sales.

Moreover, to guide product upgrades and iterations, we need to make practical data analysis by monitoring the use status and fault utilization analysis of hardware.

Compared to other hardware technology, big data is based on software and algorithm. It’s a core technology influencing home automation.

Cloud Computing technology

For home automation, cloud computing is an infrastructure for big data and all networks in the future.

Since cloud computing become one of the processing platforms for huge information, the intelligent functions of home automation devices have increased significantly. The device response speed is faster and faster. Taking ZigBee home automation as an example, it has many intelligent functions such as smart appliances, smart lighting, smart curtains, audio and video control, and environmental monitoring. The average response speed of each execution command is within 1-2 seconds. This is all supported by cloud computing with a large storage space that makes it quickly analyze and transmit data.

Cloud Computing is a base core technology influencing home automation.
