Today, advances in technology are increasingly reaching many things to be done easily, quickly, and efficiently. One of them is preparing quality residential smart buildings that require technological sophistication. Residential with the smart building concept is not familiar to the public, but its existence is all around us.
Residential smart buildings have many benefits ranging from the effectiveness of energy reduction and budget spending. Various things can be done without human intervention and will make it easier for homeowners. Unfortunately, it takes quite a lot of funds to own a smart building. To find out more about smart buildings, let’s look at the following reviews, starting from understanding, examples of interior design, to existing components.
Definition of Smart Building
What are smart buildings? If interpreted literally, smart building means smart or smart buildings. Of course, functionally, a smart building will give an idea of how a building can work more effectively, not just as a residence. But as a place that provides comfort, security, and savings.
The working principle of smart buildings is the integration of all components in the building. The basis of its work is using the help of sensors that automatically work on their own according to system settings or the existence of a Building Automation System (BAS). Smart building is generally used in large buildings such as offices, hotels, airports, hospitals, and skyscrapers. However, now it can be applied to residential homes as well.
What can this system integration do? There are lots of benefits, such as turning on the lights at night, paying for electricity automatically, turning off unused electrical energy, monitoring room temperature, and humidity, setting lighting levels, and optimizing home surveillance cameras. This is all done without human control or is called the integration of the building components themselves. Even though it is very genius, the system in the smart building is very complicated and must be done by experts requiring stable and fast internet power. In addition, the budget required is very large. However, in the future smart building will greatly save costs.
Examples of Smart Building Interior Design
If you already understand the concept of a smart building, take a look at the interior design of smart buildings. In general, smart building interior design is the same as housing, there are only a few components that are sensory in certain parts as shown above. Every corner of the area has technological sophistication.
In the picture above, it is clear that each part has an integrated control system starting from lighting automation, heating (smart thermostat), HVAC, security, and other household appliances.
Smart Building Components
In a smart building, of course, some components can be activated into a sophisticated system that can easily help with security and convenience in-home activities. The following are some of the components of a smart building;
Temperature and Humidity
HVAC or Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning is a system in a smart building that regulates room temperature and humidity automatically. By using automatic sensors, humidity and temperature in the room can be monitored precisely.
In the lighting component, the system works to adjust the right lighting level in the room. If the room has enough light, the light automatically turns on and the curtains open. If the light conditions are dim or when it is cloudy, the lights will automatically turn on.
The bigger the building, the greater the energy use. The use of manual energy in buildings may cause waste and expenses that are quite high. With an on-off system that automatically follows the system, energy can be managed properly. For example, the use of computers, televisions, and other electronic goods must automatically turn off when the building is empty.
Security is a crucial component needed by buildings such as CCTV, door locks, sensors for automatic opening and closing controls, and home alarms. This security system can be activated with a code, fingerprint, and various other ways. With control like this, the house will be very secure.
The residential security system is also implemented at Mustika Village Karawang which has a security layer and is equipped with CCTV at the main gate. This security makes Mustika Village Karawang a safe and comfortable place to live.
