The intelligent TV: your automated and centralized multimedia screen.

A home automation installation allows you to connect, command and control domestic devices, called automated objects, to facilitate and centralize your daily tasks and leisure activities. TV home automation, also called video home automation, concerns the smart TV and, more generally, any automated multimedia screen. It is the video complement of home cinema automation.

The smart TV allows you to use all your multimedia devices in all house rooms.

Smart TV: how it works

Home automation consists of connecting your various multimedia devices (televisions, video projectors, screens, smartphones, etc.): you thus create a network. This connection can be :

    – wired: it is an Ethernet network by cable and RJ45 port;

    – wireless: it is a WiFi network.

You can then command and control each of your devices from a home automation box, also called a control panel or simply remote control, or from your smartphone or tablet.

There are several technologies for automated TV, and these are the communication protocols: the languages that allow your devices to communicate with each other. Some protocols are developed and used by several brands. These are the most widespread, and they are also called non-proprietary protocols. This is the case, for example, of ZWave, X10, Zidbee, PLC Bus, etc. The other protocols are proprietary, developed, and linked to a single manufacturer: SomfyLegrand, etc.

Your TV must be DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certified, guaranteeing the interconnection between the different devices.

Beyond these basic requirements, your devices can also be compatible with specific networks such as web services (Surf TV, SmartTV inter@ctive, etc.), Android TV or even voice recognition. These options can be helpful depending on the type of control you want.
