However, after all, smart home is a new field without uniform industry standard, the poor compatibility and unstable operation commonly etc weaknesses exist in the products in markets. In respect of technology, RS-232/485 serial communication technology, power line carrier technology and radio frequency technique etc technical agreements of smart home are popular now. According to wiring modes, the smart home technologies in market can be classified into 4 kinds of technologies: field bus, power line carrier technology, wireless technology and centralized control.

Technical Category Related Contents

Field bus technology Field bus control system realizes the networking and signal transmission of home lighting, electric apparatus and alarming system through system bus, the decentralized field control technologies can controls each functional module in network only by inserting into bus nearby, and the wiring is also convenient.
At present, LonWorks, CE'BUS, CAN and H'BUS mainly adopt bus technology. the oversea enterprises, such as HONEYWELL, etc have such products, the domestic enterprises, such as'Shenzhen WRT Intelligent Electrical Appliance Co., Ltd, Hisense Kelon Electrical Holdings Company Ltd, Tsinghua Tonghua and Haier also develop similar products. the smart home systems based on this technology take large market shares in China.

In smart home field, the industry leader with powerful technical strength, openness and marketability is needed urgently. Smart home is only one of application orientations of internet of things and it still need to combine with internet to realize the real life of internet of things.
