How does a smart home work?

A smart home typically consists of several elements. These include actuators such as radiator controllers, lamps, shutters, blinds and ventilation systems, which can be easily integrated into a smart home.
Input devices so that even a short click on a switch is enough or, of course, tapping on the smartphone. Essential functions in the room, such as switching lights on and off, are always available in the form of a button on the wall.
In addition, sensors which are required, for example, to measure room temperatures or the weather and give a signal as to whether doors and windows are open or closed. In combination with a Smart Home control panel (Eltako Safe, wibutler, mediola), these two components form the heart of a Smart Home.
Last but not least, the networking, which brings all the strands of the system together to form the safe, so that all the components can talk to each other and be controlled.
