Home line actuators are responsible for the automation of the housework and the household activities. The actuators are responsible for the control of most of the automated movements from the home. From the gates to the garage doors, to the kitchen, living room and even the bedrooms, actuator systems can be found providing improved comfort and convenience in the homes. Actuators can be very helpful to the elderly and the disabled who may have to move around the compound. A well-automated home with actuators will eliminate the chance of employing caregivers to these people. They, therefore, increase the quality of life for the disabled and the elderly who do not need the services of other people in the homes in the presence of actuator systems.
Control of Household Activities
We recommend EasyEDA for circuit design and PCB prototype
12v electric actuator can control most of the domestic activities which may include home entertainment systems and cabinets, houseplants and yard watering and even changing the ambience scenes for different events such as prayers, parties and dinners. Actuators can control the home like robots, with the devices connected to a central place on the home network. Therefore, all automated actuators can be monitored from a standard point.
Integration of Household Appliances
Owing to the integration ability of the actuators and the home environment, different types of devices and systems can be able to communicate in an integrated manner for conveniences, safety and energy savings. The garage doors, gates, louvers, water pumps can also be controlled by actuators by use of simple remote controls to much-sophisticated computer micro-controlled networks with varying degrees of intelligence and automation. Actuators can be programmed with different kinds of software to automate a home for reasons to ease work, security and control of environmental conditions. In the modern household, actuators have been applied to the electrical system, telephone, electric appliances and doorbells to monitor peoples’ movements in restricted areas of the house. Therefore as the number of actuator controlled devices increase in the homes, interconnection and communication has become essential and a much more desirable future.
