KnowSmart is our team’s innovative approach towards implementing smart house technology that is quickly emerging on today’s market. Management of the home is done by a central command server. Multiple modules on devices around the house communicate with a central server. These modules are part of four distinct subsystems: the Lock System, the Climate Control System, the Smart Outlet System, and the Appliance Control System. The server and the modules communicate back and forth to authenticate a user. Once the user is authenticated, the preferences of the user(s) are loaded and set. Each individual module adjusts to the devices’ settings accordingly. The central command server will then be updated with the status. Each individual module should be able to be applied to any house.
