When I approach My Home and
Press the remote, I like the gate to open and drive way to light up .
I like the garage to automatically
open without the need to have another remote.
I also like to park in my spot
exactly with ease. When I leave the garage, I like the Garage door to automatically
close securing my car, and protecting it from dust.
As soon as I enter and open
the family entrance I like the Entrance to light up for me.
Also I like the stairs to automatically
light up as I climb the stairs, or walk the corridor.
During me being undressed into
casual dress after work, I like those lights to dim down to save my home energy,
and like the drive way lights
to switch off with the garage lights.
I like to come back to a cool
bedroom and family room, hence I like the A/C to run as scheduled daily except
As I am being undressed, I
like to enjoy nice music throughout my bedroom and master Bathroom + dressing
If I am setting in my family
room, I like to be able to enjoy music or any videos or satellite digital channels
that I wish.
If I have visitors, I would
like to answer them without running around, and would also desire to see them
on my TV as I buzz them in.
I like the walk way to light
up for my guests, and the porch to illuminate as they approach the entrance.
If we decide to set on the
Garden terrace, I like to be able to control my garden light scenes, and to
stream music that I can select remotely where I am setting.
If another Friend comes and
is at the gate, I like to buzz him in while I am in the garden from my wireless
phone, and open for him the way in.
As bed time comes, I would
like to be able to press one button on my touch screen, or from my phone menu,
or my interactive TV, and be able to switch all house lights and A/C thermostats
+ garden systems and lights Off, while switching on ACs for my and children
rooms and automatically secure all home doors, windows and gates ++
When it is wake up time, and
since my children wake up with mom ahead of me, all their A/C's switch off 10
minutes before wake up to school schedule automatically all curtains opens,
and all home security is disarmed. A/C is switched on to cool breakfast area
A/C in my master bedroom is
back to normal as my wife is ready with the children 10 minutes before my wake
up time. AC will than switch off in my room as system announces the wake up
tone through the speakers. After breakfast, and as we leave to work, the system
automatically takes over to save energy.
I like my home to automatically
irrigate my plants as needed. If my servant mistakenly switch any drive way,
or any garden or any light on, I like my home to rectify and check on mistakes
every 10 minutes when my servant is trying to switch on then off the A/C thermostat,
I like the system not to accept, and wait the needed period as per manuals this
will protect my equipment and decrease my need for repairs.
If I am away on vacation, I
like the system to run A/Cs at every room for 1 hour every 2-3 weeks to make
sure that coolant is actively moved and all pipes and system is ok.
During my absence at any time,
if humidity exceed certain level, or heat reaches the set point, I like the
A/Cs to kick in automatically, to pump any humidity away from my furniture and
paintings and keep them well kept.
When I have a party at home,
I like all elevators to be parked, and all sprinkler systems to stay off not
to ruin my party. I like also the home automation LCDs and Touch screen + thermostats
to be locked not to allow visitors to play or mistakenly do things.
I like to keep an eye on my
children and their friends as they swim or play in garden In case they are not
suppose to swim, or no guard is present, I like to be alarmed directly if any
one fall in pool water.
Under my Gazebo, when it is
summer time I like to have misters coolers. I like to have nice candle like
lights floating on my pool surface, I fancy enjoying music, B.B.Q and grilled
steak, while remotely monitoring the meat temperature.
I like to also have a recliner
that I can adjust its angle as I need setting on grass or any where on terrace.
If I am enjoying a drink, I
believe that a small gadget like the wine Ginei will impress my friends as it
opens the bottle for us smoothly.
I love to control fountains
and different lights mood with my remote control.
If any one of my friends or family leave the patio
door or balcony or room door or window open for more than 5 minutes, I like
that room A/C thermostat to turn off automatically. I like to be warned about
that forgotten hatch as I go to my room to sleep so I decide about it.
In case I am away, and any
one try to jump into my premises, I like to have 3-4 lines of defense.
First step lets say would be to trigger lights in garden as he moves at night
around to stop him and let him know he is monitored, Also I like my cameras
to start recording. If he continue and open my door or window or break my glass
or move from an area I left open my self, I like all home lights inside and
outside to trigger and light up. Also I like to give him few seconds before
I use the third line of defense, triggering the Sirens and Flashers. If no proper
code is entered I like my home to automatically call out for help to police
or friends, and to start sending E-mail with intruder pictures, I would also
Like to announce that Police on the way to him via all home speakers. ( I like
My Home to Guard me, and my investment)
When I buzz my guest in, and
after they come reaching my Formal Entrance, if I keep it that entrance open
for 20 Seconds or more I like my home to understand that I am having some guests,
I like it to close the curtains, Switch on the Lights and ACs. even run some
Jazz music too. I simply want my home to understand my moves, and what I need
Most importantly I like to
be able to manually do things and override any operation or schedule. I like
to have very elegant switches, and sleek LCDs or touch screens, and fixtures.
I also Like to be able to control by remote, by telephone, from internet, from
Touch screen, via my TC, or home PC, or even by voice.
I do not want my house to look
high tech, I like it to look like home and act like home but with comfort, and
I love to impress my guests
, spoil my self, and add value to any buyer or investor by other gadgets like
Mirror defoggers in bathroom, and Bathroom Wall TV that broadcast the program
I am watching in my room into bathroom. Wi Fi Wireless network, and all home
data network with internet, every room to have full video and satellite distribution
with distributed or streamed audio.
I like to give my Pet some
comfort too by adding smart Pet door that opens for it only.
I do not want my alarm to trigger
if my cat or small pet is moving at home while I am sleeping, but I want it
to protect me and alarm even if servant climbing my private stairs at night,
or if there are strangers entering my home.
When I go Jogging I like not
to carry any keys, and be able to enter my house keylessly. I like my home to
know my schedules, and to adjust on week ends and holidays differently ( I Like
it to be smart).
When my energy consumption
is high, I like my home to tell me, to remind me when it is time to clean filters,
to warn me if any pump has tripped or if any water leak is happening or if I
have low water level in tank, if my AC drip tray is full, or if my sump pump
has problem If I do not react, I like it to announce to me, and even SMS me
and e-mail me to take care. When it is Birthday, or anniversary .. I like to
be reminded and greeted as I enter the Home or as I rise. (I want home to surprise
my Family with happiness).
When I am traveling, or away
at work, I like to be able to keep an eye remotely on happenings, and to control
remotely my systems I like to have my Home theater Wiring and My Play station
Plug and Play, or my PC to TV link ready .. I do not like to see exposed wires.
I like to have full ability to communicate between rooms by phone intercoms.
I like to be at home, feel
at home, and have complete comfort with style. I love to be able to customize
certain scenes, and save those settings to use again when needed like: Go to
Bed with Guest, Go to Work, Big Party, or Small Outdoor or Garden Party, Movie
Time or Romanic Eve Casual Dining or Romantic Dining Home alone vacation Mode,
away mode weekend mode and many more.
I like to be able to check
my outdoor pool temperature, air temp, and humidity just to know.
I like my home to switch on
my building lights and fence according to time, and light conditions, and mode
selected. I like my house to do more, as I live with it I like it to adjust
