Smart House? Or not smart ??
Long ago, back in Soviet times, I in one of the books about Alice came across the concept of "smart home".
Well, now periodically in publications about a smart house begins a dispute on the topic "yes nifiga he is not smart!"
Understand the issue?
In general, all these smart houses are just human laziness!
The whole history of housing - the struggle with laziness! Or struggle for the sake of laziness.
Mankind invented something in life to not stumble in the dark on the stones on the floor, do not run to the street when itch, do not drag around 24 hours a day for firewood for heating and cooking, etc. etc.
They took a cave - it's cold.
Curtained the entrance, so as not to blow - it's dark.
The fire was lit-it was lighter and warmer, but smoke.
We made a hood over the fire - but you get tired to warm up the whole volume, and you want light.
Have made small houses that superfluous not to warm - but it is dark.
Hacked the windows - it was light. But it's blowing.
We put in mica, bull bubbles, etc. etc. - the muzzle disappeared. But cloudy and unsharp. And stuffy.
Developed opening windows with glass. But at night it's garbage.
You can not get firewood for lighting - we came up with lamps.
Lamps are better to hang higher, but you need to light it. And change.
Invented dropping suspensions, and then all sorts of gas and electric.
Well, etc. etc. - only to suffer less garbage in everyday life.
In fact, the modern "smart house" is just another round of improvements and simplification of life:
Yes, now you do not have to run after the beams, you do not have to unscrew the lamp to turn it off, but you can turn it off or turn it on via the Internet from the other end of the world!
Yes, now you do not have to go to the theater or switch the TV when you get up from the couch - the remote control or smartphone will do better.
Yes, we do not run to the woods for firewood, we do not turn on the heating stoves, etc. - The house will manage itself.
Clever or not smart ??
A dog is a friend of a man
"Oh, what a clever dog you have - it brings a stick!" And my only able to bark at cats! "
"Oh, you have a doggie of genius - such tricks perform! And my only runs for a stick! "
"What a clever parrot you have!" He's talking! And my dog only brings newspapers and slippers! "
And here like and clever animals, but people are still considered smarter! (There are exceptions, but oh well!)
Yes, I do not argue - a person is still far away from home.
But in comparison with your average "cave" dwelling - our house gives the impression of a smarter!
You're leaving the house.
Go through all the rooms - put out the light. Then another half a day of nervousness turned off the iron and the kettle and turned out all the lamps!
When I leave the house I press the button and the house starts "conservation": it extinguishes the light, turns off the unnecessary devices, etc. IMHO - my wiser!
If I doubt - through the Internet I open the terminal and I clarify whether there is any garbage. Yours can not.
If it happens, the house will signal to me. Well, pushes out at the robbers if that.
From the stop I give the command and to the arrival the teapot is already hot. If you do not have a wife at home - it's valuable!
I'm not saying that I really have a genius. I've seen a bunch of brilliant scripts to simplify some things that I can not yet apply.
But compared to the usual "cave for life" - my like a trained dog in comparison with the usual decorative!
Live with the mind!
And so we came to the most important thing.
In fact - here "someone against all sorts of rules in the word letters moved!"
It's not right to say "smart house" - it's more like a "smart house"!
Or "house by clever".
In the magazine "Radio" "even then" there were articles about "smart automation" in the house.
Why pay for light all the time, if you can include one end of the corridor and turn it off in another?
Why click the switch if you can put a presence detector?
Why run to the gate if you can make a speakerphone?
Why put up with the heat and cold, if you can collect a thermostat ??
Do not be stupid - be smart and throw off some of the worries about the technique!
In our apartment from the '80s there was an "intelligent" pantry - the light turned on when we went inside. Nothing complicated - stupidly the Soviet "micrik" to break the chain into a lamp when the door is closed.
For almost forty years in the pantry the light bulb was changed twice! Микрик has removed in general only one year ago at replacement of doors!
Yes, do not say that the brain in this automation, but life has simplified almost forty years!
Grandfather in the late 90's put in his bedroom passage switches.
Not automatic, but at night to extinguish the light do not have to get up!
Automatic curtains, infrared from stylalki, remotely controlled light, adjustable heating and cooling
Yes Yes! They are not Einstein!
But they allow you to live a little smarter than the rest!
I will not argue - my smart house or not.
He is definitely cleverer than many other people's homes.
He is a genius in comparison with the caves.
He "does not pull" to smart houses from fantasy
He is a comfortable house.
A house that facilitates some of the everyday trivia of life.
Yes, he does not think of me in the literal sense of the word. But he takes care of my convenience
So - the border of "cleverness" has its own.
And before you scornfully write that the radio dimmer is not a smart house - get up and go to the switch!
That the Claudia was visible.
Maybe a radio button and not a smart house - but by comparison with it - your does not pull!
As an epilogue
"The island of the rusty general" Kir Bulychev
In the morning the alarm clock is on tiptoe, looks out the window. Although he remembers what the weather promised, but it never hurts to check. If you do not take into account the weather, you can make a mistake with the awakening of the child.
The alarm clock sees: outside the window the wind is blowing, birches are bent, fast gray clouds are running across the sky. But there is no rain and is not expected. Then the alarm clock connects to the home computer and asks for the following dаta: what lessons does Alisa have at school today, and it is very important to find out which of them Alice likes and which ones she does not like? What did the housekeeper prepare for breakfast today? Did Alisa quarrel with any of her friends yesterday?
These are all not empty questions. The alarm clock should know: what sound should he wake up to his mistress today?
Finally the information is collected. It turns out that Alice is tolerant to the cloudy weather, no lessons have been given for today, because summer holidays began, the housekeeper prepared a porridge of porridge, which Alice can not endure, but with the cherry jam that Alice adores. Yesterday, Alisa did not quarrel with anyone, except for a purely scientific dispute with Arkasha Sapozhkov and worry for Pashka Geraskin, who immediately flew to Ecuador right after the last lesson, because he traded in a neighboring class a secret map of the treasure buried in 1560 by conquistador Juan Montagna, but returned home, all scratched, riddled with mosquitoes, only at eleven o'clock in the evening. And, of course, without a treasure.
After thinking and weighing all the information, the alarm turned to Alice and performed on the clarinet an ancient air march "Higher and higher and higher, we are striving for our birds!", Since it was this melody, and exactly on the clarinet, that was best suited for In order to wake Alice.
From the sound of the march, Alice opened her eyes, stretched and thought: "Why is it that I have such a good mood?" The alarm clock felt her mood and smiled inwardly, because she could not smile outwardly.
