Iranian researchers have built a home connectivity system that works via wireless Internet.

Ali Moqaddas, a researcher at a knowledge-based company, added that the new system provides the possibility of transmitting information about the home’s conditions even when the property is vacant, Mehr News Agency reported.

“With the advancements in technology, the emergence of new systems can be constantly observed, one being ‘smartifying’ houses, which is developing in line with technological progress. Smart buildings are structured in a way that they can be remote-controlled,” he said.

The researcher further said securing one’s property is greatly facilitated by home automation. He added that the newly-designed system can replace surveillance cameras, because the latter tend to bring chaos to the house.

“In case a phone or doorbell rings, the system would spontaneously warn homeowners via WiFi whenever the building is vacant,” he said.

“The new smart home system sends an alert to the owner on the basis of a predefined code. The system can also be configured to transfer house events to a mobile phone.”

Moqaddas noted that all devices in smart homes are integrated and controlled by a central unit. “The new system is capable of giving warnings or alarms via the Internet upon the occurrence of unexpected events in the building,” he concluded.
