Planning for electricity circuit diagrams

Today we began to plan for the electricity circuit diagrams and network in the upcoming villa anneberg from a-hus.

We are going to implement some smart solutions to the household such as wireless transmitters for sockets and lightning switches paired with different kind of temperature sensors and night fall relays and motions sensors. I’m going to build up the smart house solutions with technology from Telldus Technologies.

TellStick Net transmits and receives signals at 433.92 MHz that turns on/off electricity on remote socket receivers to which you can connect your electronics.

With help of HomeAutomation i’m going to build a graphical interface for the Villa Anneberg so i can manage all of the devices remotly from anywhere i’m at the moment with my smartphone,  tablet or computer.

HomeAutomation is a web interface for TellStick which keeps track of your devices.  With HomeAutomation you can for example create schedules, control your devices manually and keep track of temperatures. Schedules may be temperature controlled, sun controlled or static. The temperature can be fetched from your own database or from an external source. With the house plan view you can get a simple overview of the status of your devices at their location in your house.

  1. Hi,

    I would like to offer you an advise. You might want to reconsider the Telldus solution for various reasons, since you’re building from scratch.

    1. Reliability – you do not have any confirmation back to your controller, your “request for action” actually has been performed.
    2. Distance – you have limitations in distance you can have from the “controlling device” to the “controlled device”.
    3. Security – there is absolutely no security protocol on the “Telldus/Nexa” combination. Do you really want “anyone” to be able to control most of the things you plan on connecting, with this setup?
    4. Interference – please remember that the 433.92 MHz frequency band which you will be using, is unfortunately already these days quite pre-occupied. You may, just like me, run into problems where the “controlled device” is not reachable, because of RF interference.

    I’d be happy to give you more information in email, if you want.
