SMART MICON - INTELLIGENT BUILDING SYSTEM CONTROLLED BY RADIO COMMUNICATION
FEATURES THAT MAKE THE SMART MICON SYSTEM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SOLUTIONS:
• Low starting price,
• No dedicated control unit – there is offered a small and cheap control unit based on a Raspberry PI module, but also any PC can be used,
• Use of free “open source ” software,
• No dedicated radio communication network is created – the system uses the existing structure and equipment of WiFi networks,
• The system is developed and constructed by the company MICON,
• Possibility to apply the system in existing buildings – no need to install additional wiring thanks the use of wireless communication.
THE MOST IMPORTANT BENEFITS OF THE SYSTEM:
THE MOST IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF THE SYSTEM:
1. Heating control.
2. Lighting control.
Possibility of remote monitoring and control of lighting. Additional possibilities are provided by the infrared presence sensor module, which is designed to control whether there is someone in the room at any given moment (e.g. in the bathroom). Then, after detection of a lack of a person, our module will turn off the lighting for us, after the user determined period of time. Regardless of the programmed parameters of the modules, they can be modified at any time. Regardless from advanced commands that we introduce to the module, it is always possible in a traditional way locally to turn off or on the lighting.
SMART MICON WI-FI CONTROL MODULES
CONSTRUCTION OF WI-FI CONTROL MODULES:
The wi-fi control module is based on the wireless communication module operating in the Wi-Fi standard, equipped with a programmable control system – microcontroller. In addition, the module has a system of detection of mains voltage transition through zero, load power measurement module and switches in the form of semiconductor or electromechanical relays controlling the connected loads. The wireless communication module is responsible for the exchange of information between the wi=fi control module and the supervisory controller of the system. The control unit receives data from the power measurement module and controls the state of the output relay. In order to increase reliability of the output relay, the controller, on the basis of the signal from the zero detection circuit, turns on the relay when the mains voltage crosses zero. In addition, the wi-fi control module is equipped with its own mains voltage converter to low DC voltage for supplying individual components of the module. The wi-fi control module is made in a compact form with dimensions and shape allowing for mounting in a typical electrical wall box.
SPECIFICATIONS AND TYPES OF MODULES:
- Single-relay module controlling the output up to 16A with power consumption measurement.
- Two-relay module controlling outputs up to 2x5A with power consumption measurement.
- Module with two on/off inputs and two relay outputs.
- Module with measurement of temperature, humidity, pressure and illuminance.
Common specifications of the wi-fi control modules:
- supply voltage: 100-265 V AC,
- 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radio communication,
- housing for mounting in electrical wall junction boxes with a diameter of ≥ 60 mm and a depth of 60 mm – dimensions (length x width x height): 41 x 48 x 29 mm.
3. Controlling network sockets.
The ability to remotely control and monitor the load status of 230 V AC mains sockets, and thus the electrical devices connected to them. One example is phone chargers or devices in a so-called standby mode that are plugged into a socket all the time. In this case, after detecting the standby mode, the device may be automatically turned off. Moreover, the socket modules are equipped with a precise system for measuring the electric power consumed by the connected electric device. This ensures full control over the connected device, which gives significant benefits in the form of lower electricity bills.
REMOTE CONTROL MODULE USING GSM COMMUNICATION
This module has a built-in GSM modem with a socket for a SIM card. The module has control inputs and on/off outputs, that can cooperate with on/off and analog sensors and control external output devices. The GSM module uses the existing mobile telephone network. Communication between the module and the user is done by sending and receiving short text messages SMS. The module informs the user about events, as well as performs functions and tasks remotely forced by the operator via an SMS message with appropriate content or a dedicated application.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF THE MODULE:
- 5 configurable inputs as on/off NO / NC or analog
- 3 on/off semiconductor “open drain” outputs 30 V DC / 5 A
- 1 on/off relay output 230 V AC / 5 A
- 1-Wire / I2C interface output, eg for an external temperature sensor
- IP20 housing for mounting on 35 mm DIN rail with dimensions (width x height x depth): 138.5 x 88 x 62.5 mm.
- power supply 5-24 VDC, max 5W
TECHNICAL PARAMETERS OF THE POWER SUPPLY (OPTIONAL):
• 100–230 V AC / 5V DC / 2.1 A mains adapter with backup battery 3.7 V 3 Ah
KEY MODULE FEATURES:
- communication via SMS with reception confirmation,
- operation via a mobile phone application or directly via SMS,
- disarming / arming the module with SMS,
- sending an SMS every time any input changes its state,
- sending SMS with the module status periodically, at time intervals and at the request of the User,
- control of the module outputs and module configuration via SMS messages sent from the authorized person mobile phone,
- can be operated by several users – several telephone numbers saved in the module memory,
- one dedicated binary input as alarm – automatically activates one of the relay outputs,
- the module can be operated by several authorized users – before the first use of a given cell phone first must be sent to the module a special SMS containing a telephone number of a given user – indication (setting) of an authorized user number,
- built-in thermostat function, configurable temperature thresholds,
- control of mains power and battery condition.
