GamaBit Ltd. presented a new version of the Houseper smart home system. The long-awaited module for complete smart automation allows for intelligent control of all processes, as well as an option for notification by sending an SMS to the owners of the Houseper controller model with a built-in 4G LTE modem.
Another new aspect is the ability to start the light show (Loop) with color LED bulb E27 dimmable or another ZigBee device, with functionality “Color control.”
New options in the latest version of Houseper
Light show (Loop)
Owners of the Smart LED Colour Bulb E27will notice that the detailed page of devices with “Color Control” functionality now has the ability to start, stop and set up a light show. Try them out, and you will see how the smart colour bulb, when it is turned on and a light show starts, starts to change colour smoothly, going through the whole range of available colours. Changing the “Cycle Duration” in Light Show Settings will change the speed at which the colors change. Also, as the “Direction” changes, the colours change their sequence. The combination of “Saturation” and “Level Control” options will delight Houseper smart home users with truly unlimited possibilities for a beautiful and spectacular light show.
In addition to email and smartphone notifications, the Houseper Smart Home system will now offer instant SMS notification to SIM card controllers. It is also a second, independent messaging channel that works even when the internet connection fails because it uses the GSM network. This new moment is extremely important in the event of events such as fire, flood or gas leak.
Automatic control module
The goal of the new module for smart automation in the Houseper smart home system is to make it as easy as possible for users to automate basic everyday tasks in various categories of smart experience – energy efficiency, lighting, heating, protection, security, etc.
The new options for automated control of the smart home will be able to combine several smart devices within the home, with the setting of different actions. For example, automatic control of the operation of air conditioners or heating appliances with options for setting an event when opening and closing a window, adjusting the humidity and temperature in a room with predefined settings for certain days and time ranges, automating home security when there is no one at home, personalized flood notification and even tracking and controlling the time spent by the child with the video game console.
The new smart automation module is easy and convenient to program!

Examples of smart home automation
At Houseper, we have made sure that the smart home system not only acts as a daily helper, but also brings entertainment. It is suitable for use in a house or apartment, as well as for a remote villa, second home or even for assistance with daily processes in the store or office.
See examples of practical automation that are already possible after the last update of the system, and you will be able to program for execution yourself with the help of the application:
Flood, fire or gas leak in the kitchen
In addition to the existing notifications to a smartphone or e-mail, you will now be able to receive SMS in case of a critical event that requires your immediate intervention. For example, in a case of a fire, gas leak or flood, a clever algorithm can be set up to notify you in a timely manner so, you will be able to react as quickly as possible and minimize damage. This can happen, for example, with the next smart devices: Houseper Water Leak Sensor, Photoelectric Smoke Sensor, Gas Sensor. An algorithm is created, which in the case of one or more of the following events – flood, fire or gas leak, immediately will send you an SMS, email and or notification to the phone.
Houseper Smart Metering Switch, 1xNO 16A is installed in the socket where the air conditioner is plugged, and Houseper Door/Window Smart Sensor is placed on the window. An automatic control algorithm is created in which, when the window is opened, the air conditioner turns off automatically. Accordingly, after ventilating and closing the window, the air conditioner turns on again automatically.
The Houseper smart home system can be an effective helper even during the summer holidays, when children often spend too much time in front of the TV, PlayStation or computer. For this purpose, a Houseper Smart Metering Switch, 1xNO 16A is installed in the socket where the TV, PlayStation or computer is connected. A smart automatic algorithm is created that sends SMS, email and / or notification to the parent’s phone when the current electricity consumption becomes greater than zero.
