The controller (hub) is the mandatory device that stands at the heart of the Houseper smart home automation system. The smart controller sets a network to manage communication between the connected smart devices. All system data is picked up and saved by the smart devices thus providing for the system’s security and integrity together with the controller.
The controller comes with built-in software that allows you to manage different devices and appliances with one simple click from your smartphone even when you are away. You can turn off and on appliances, air conditioning and lights, track power consumption statistics and optimise the use of energy-intensive appliances such as washing machines, dryers or dishwashers, monitor security, motion tracking, room climate and a lot more. Thanks to the controller, the system sends instant alerts and notifications for every single thing happening in your home while you are away and can prevent severe damages in cases of fire, flood, gas leakage and even deter burglary attempts. The Houseper app allows for constant access, supervision and control of your smart home automation system no matter where you may be. If you do not have a WiFi router, the controller can build a hotspot for you. If a SIM card is installed, the controller will automatically switch between the local Internet connection and 4G LTE.
The Houseper system does not need permanent internet connectivity. All the logic is inside the controller, which makes it independent and even if the internet stops, the devices and system retain their functionality. The controller needs internet connectivity just to make the initial configuration or subsequent updates and to provide remote access. As for the devices, they communicate on a specially created by the controller network and do not need internet connectivity. The cameras are the only exception that require an internet connection if you want to store the records on a remote server.
If a SIM card is installed, the controller will automatically switch between the local Internet connection and 4G LTE.
Energy redundancy and reliability
The controller has a built-in battery which in case of power failure and depending on the load will supply it up to 12 hours. Considering that almost all home security devices are battery-operated, there will be no significant difference in case of a power failure.
Most of the devices are battery-operated, so communication between them and the controller will not be interrupted during a power outage. This means that, depending on the devices used, the Houseper system will be able to retain most of its functionality. For example, if someone deliberately interrupts the mains supply to your property and tries to break into it, this act is sure to be registered by Houseper.
Access control and security
Remote access to the system goes through a special initial authorisation procedure, that for security reasons, can be performed locally only. Only after the smart device is granted access permission it will be able to connect to the system remotely. Devices that have access to the system can be viewed at any time and their access can be temporarily restricted or completely removed. You can also see which smart devices are currently connected to the system.
Both remote and local access can be completely stopped. This means that smartphones will not be able to connect to the system and you will be able to control the system only from the controller.
