It should also include food, drink, sleep, security, health, friendship, and even furniture, and almost all the items and life at home. Its purpose is to make people’s home life more comfortable, simpler, more convenient and happier.

Smart home is a living environment, a living environment with a smart home system installed on the platform of a residence, and the process of implementing a smart home system is called smart home integration. With the residence as the platform, the integrated wiring technology, network communication technology, smart home – system design program security prevention technology, automatic control technology, audio and video technology will be home life related facilities integration, build efficient residential facilities and family schedule affairs management system, enhance home security, convenience, comfort, artistry, and achieve environmental protection and energy saving living environment. Smart home, need to be understood in two parts, intelligent and home. Home means all kinds of equipment for people’s life; intelligent is the key point that smart home should highlight, which should achieve automatic control management without human operation and control, and can learn the current user habits to do more to meet people’s needs.

II. Composition

Smart home integration is the use of integrated wiring technology, network communication technology, security prevention technology, automatic control technology, audio and video technology to integrate the equipment related to home life. Due to the different technical standards and protocols adopted by smart homes, most smart home systems use integrated wiring, but a few systems may not use integrated wiring technology, such as power carrier, in either case, there must be corresponding network communication technology to complete the required signal transmission tasks, so network communication technology is one of the key technologies in smart home integration. Security prevention technology is an essential technology in the smart home system, in the district and indoor visual intercom, home

monitoring, home burglar alarm, family-related community card

and other fields are widely used. Automatic control technology is an essential technology in smart home system, widely used in smart home control center and home equipment automatic control module, which has a very important role in scientific management of home energy and schedule management of home equipment. Audio and video technology is an important technology to realize the comfort and artistry of home environment, which is reflected in the centralized distribution of audio and video, background music, home theater, etc.

III. System

The intelligent home system contains eight major subsystems: home wiring system, home network system, intelligent home (central) control management system, home lighting control system, home security system, background music system (such as TVC flat sound), home theater and multimedia system, home environment control system and other major systems. Among them, intelligent home (central) control management system, home lighting control system, home security system are necessary systems, home wiring system, home network system, background music system, home theater and multimedia system, home environment control system are optional systems.

In the identification of smart home system products, the smart home (smart home system products) produced by the manufacturer must belong to the necessary system and can realize the main functions of smart home before it can be called smart home. Therefore, smart home (central) control management system, home lighting control system, home security system can be directly called smart home (smart home system products). And optional systems can not be directly called smart home, can only use the combination of smart home plus the specific system expression method, such as background music system, called smart home background music. The optional system products directly called smart home, is a misleading behavior to the user.

In the identification of the smart home environment, only a smart home with all the necessary systems installed intact and at least one or more optional systems can be called a smart home.

For an intelligent home there needs to be a wiring system that can support multiple applications such as voice/data, multimedia, home automation, security, etc. This system is also known as an intelligent home wiring system.
