In this article we will see how smartphone voice control works in relation to home automation and its peculiarities. If the automated functions for the home have then become very widespread, in these times also voice home automation is becoming increasingly popular.

Voice home automation allows us to set all typical functions of the home automation for our home environment in smarter way possible, speaking to the system, addressing it directly for all need. Furthermore, it is worth noting that the costs for voice recognition in home automation have really dropped a lot, and this favors its spread.
With voice recognition set, each family member can be enabled to dictate instructions to the system. The turning point was given by intelligent mechanisms introduced on the market by Amazon and Google. But, in addition to devices of this type, a plant for the House that synthesizes the voice command in electrical impulse. That said, let’s find out which are the most used functions.
1. Voice instruction on temperature
With the voice instruction on the temperature, we can adjust, even comfortably from a smartphone, the temperature of the house, and we can also do it in the moment in which we are outside. Maybe when we have just left the office and we want to find a certain temperature in the house to welcome us.
Think of the warmer months, in which we would like to find the whole environment appropriately air-conditioned, or the cold months, where we would like to find an ad hoc heated environment instead. In all these cases, it will be possible, with a special one app for smartphones, regular there temperature with voice command. The instruction will be transmitted remotely to the appliance that regulates the home automation functions, installed in the house, which will correctly regulate the temperature.
2. Voice instruction on the humidity rate
Using the same type of reasoning, and the same system, it will be possible regular the humidity rate inside your home using smartphone voice control in a simple and fast way. Just say a phrase like this “Dehumidifies home”or “Turn on dehumidifier” to activate the relevant function e find the house free of humidity (which by the way is also very bad for our health).
3. Activation and deactivation of household appliances
Remote voice control works also with domestic appliances, and always with the additional option of smartphone control. Think of the convenience of being able to activate the function as soon as you leave work or the supermarket “Oven ignition”so as to find dishes to be reheated already hot and ready to be consumed, for lunch or dinner.
Or, let’s think about the case in which we had just left for the holidays, and there was, for example, the forgetfulness of detach the refrigerator. You can set the relevant vowel and remedy the situation, as well as, for example, the one relating to shutdown of all domestic appliances possibly remained on, or even of the general detachment of the current. All with a touch on the relevant app and a command pronounced a voice.
4. Activation of the technology that supports the Wi-Fi network
Whole technology which supports the WIFI network can be activated with a command vocal, at a distance. In this case, the voice command arrives from the smartphone to the chosen home automation device, which in turn will transmit the impulse to the device for the Wi-Fi network in the home.
We have said that it will be possible to establish the connection to the electrical network for the device in question, and transform the voice command into an electrical impulse. Now, we can connect the device for the home automation to that for the WIFI network. It does not matter whether it is a single router or a Mesh device for regulating access to the local network from multiple connection points.
This connection can be made via wires or via Wi-Fi, it makes no difference: the command will be transferred to the destination via wireless connection. Think also of one printer so connected, that it will make us find that particular document ready, already printed, when we return home specifically to pick it up. With the availability from mechanisms And appliances in Wi-Fi connection, the choice of what to connect to the network and what to activate vocally will be really wide.
5. The transmission of information
What is the medium by which the information is transmitted? Everything is based on a operating system iOS or Android, exactly the same as smartphones. The device is equipped, locally, with a small LCD screen that works with this operating system and allows the setting of all the desired functions. For the same reason, it is possible to install the appropriate one appconnect to the device, as well as manually, even from a smartphone.
6. The simplicity of voice commands
Voice commands are always very simple. This is the case, for example, of “Turn off the light”, “turn on the light”, “turn off the refrigerator”, “turn on the radio, channel tot”, “turn on the stereo”, “adjust stereo volume to tot level”. The same goes for TV: “Turn on the TV”, or “turn on the TV to channel tot”, “turn off the TV”, “set TV volume to level X”. There simplicity and theimmediacy commands make it possible to address the device as we would with someone willing to accept our instructions on the subject.
