In the hands of Bkav SmartHome smart home

  • With ACS-Out you can open the door in 3 ways: enter a password, scan your fingerprint or use an RFID card. Whichever way I do the unlocking, the system will give 2 short “beeps” if successful and 1 long “beep” if it fails. When I chose to unlock by entering a passcode, I had a bit of trouble knowing if I had entered the correct code or not because the device did not have a screen to display the message.
  • Direct connection. Next to the ACS-Out device is the ACS-In control panel located inside the smart room. The ACS-In panel (215 x 159 x 80 mm) has the same design as the external unit. However, taking up most of the area of ​​this panel is the display screen, like a tablet. From this screen, you can easily manage important system information such as: external camera images, weather, security alerts, reminders, etc. This information is displayed very detailed. detailed and clear on the touch screen
ACS-In Internal I/O controller
  • ACS-In’s four touch-sensitive buttons are not fixed to a fixed function, but can be flexibly changed according to each context. For example, the front-facing shutter button can be turned into a button that allows answering when someone rings the bell, a front-view button when the device is in photo mode…
  • When you step in In the living room of SmartHome, my attention turned to the SH–CC6 6-channel control panel. This is a device that can control almost the entire house: from lights, air conditioners to curtain systems
SH-CC Dashboard6
  • The 180 x 120 x 8.6 mm dimensions and weight of 290g of the SH-CC6 panel make it resemble a 7-inch wall-mounted tablet. To test how “genuine” the device is, I ran my finger along the panel and noticed that the surrounding edges were very smooth, the pairing with the tempered glass surface was solid, almost forming a complete block. .
SH CC6 has a seamless design, almost forming a complete block
  • Located in the center of the SH CC6 is a monochrome display that displays information about the current mode, including both outdoor and indoor temperatures. Below the screen are touch buttons to control the air conditioner, at the bottom are four script buttons Go to bed, Reception, Watch movies, Basic… Buttons to control light, ceiling light, chandelier, air conditioner, curtain the door… is arranged vertically around, the distance is wide enough that I don’t press the wrong function keys.
  • What I like is that with this control panel, I don’t have to run around the room to close the blinds, turn off the lights, turn on the projector when I want to Watch a movie or pull the curtain, increase the light when I receive guests, because with just one touch, the corresponding script buttons have allowed me to do it all automatically and at the same time. jobs. However, the product also has unreasonable points, the first few times I used it, I often got confused between the buttons when there were two Power buttons (the button to turn on / off the air conditioner and turn on / off the control panel).
SH-CC6 has an absolute “flat” design on the front
  • Each room in the SmartHome smart home system is equipped with a curtain and light control panel, here is a 4-channel control panel SH-CTZ4. SH-CTZ4 is like a shortened version of SH CC6 with 4 touch buttons. And with dimensions of 97 x 93 x 8.6 mm, weighing 120g, the SH-CTZ4 weighs as much as a smartphone today.
SH-CTZ4 4-channel dashboard
  • Similar to the SH CC6, the SH-CTZ4 4-channel control panel also has a “flat” design, very square and solid with a solid aluminum frame. The black background color combined with the very thin white border of the button gives the SH-CTZ4 a simple and modern but also very harmonious and sophisticated. Minimalist, modern design, monolithic aluminum frame with Gorilla Glass tempered glass makes me think of high-end smartphones from Sony or Apple. The question for me now, will Bkav ever jump into the smartphone manufacturing field as rumored for a long time?
SH-CTZ4 has a simple but elegant design
  • The four touch buttons on the SH CTZ4 can be configured to control the on/off control of four separate devices, or can be used as two buttons to increase/decrease the light, pull/open in each level. curtain level. The manufacturer has been very careful to put under each touch button a small status indicator light, this indicator will light up corresponding to the on state of the electrical equipment.

3. Sensors

  • When touring SmartHome rooms, I noticed a circular device that always blinks lights mounted on the ceiling. This is the SH-DZ automatic light on sensor. Called automatic because SH-DZ will turn on the lights when there are people in the sensing area (about 20m2) and automatically turn off the lights when there are no people walking, operating in the sensing area. Thang said this is one of the “oldest” devices of Bkav SmartHome when the first version was built 10 years ago, it can be considered as the first device that inspired Bkav to develop the entire system. SmartHome later.
  • It is the part with the red flashing light on the SH-DZ (light sensor) that will sense it’s dark to automatically turn on the light, bringing convenience to those living in the house. When used in a smart home system, SH – DZ (size 90 x 90 x 38mm) has  can  end  connect  with  system  system  information  via  network  ZigBee wireless, controlled via SmartHome interface installed on tablets or other mobile devices.
Automatic light sensor SH – DZ owns a “spaceship” design
Sensor for measuring temperature, humidity, ambient light SH-SCZ
  • Perhaps it is thanks to the design with many openings like this that the sensor SH-SCZ (size 93 x 93 x 51mm) can measure temperature, humidity, ambient light and send signal to the SmartHome system server. This device then controls other items such as air conditioners, humidifiers, lighting systems, etc. to create a comfortable living environment for users.
  • < li>In addition to the control panel system, software is also an important component of Bkav’s smart home system. SmartHome drivers are easily installed on iPhone, iPad, smartphones and tablets running Android and Windows operating systems. Controlling SmartHome from the software is very simple and easy to use with an intuitive 3D interface in Vietnamese. From the software interface, I just need to sit in one place and still be able to control home appliances in every corner of the house.
The console is a 3D rendering of your home
Controlling SmartHome is very easy with a completely Vietnamese interface

4. Conclusion

  • After a period of experience, I realized that SmartHome products pay great attention to details, always aiming for aesthetic and high-end elements in design as well as product quality. Therefore, if it is not introduced as a “Made in Vietnam” product, it will be easy for customers to mistake these as high-class products with foreign brands. And when looking at the sophisticated design and modern features, I can imagine how these high-end devices will make life comfortable when applied in practice. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the slogan “Modern home standards” is what SmartHome brings to users.
  • However, besides the above advantages, SmartHome also has some shortcomings. Shortcomings need to be overcome: adding a display screen for ACS-Out, buttons are easily confused on SH CC6… However, as mentioned, this article on hand is only a preliminary feeling, so not yet. completely reflects the details of Bkav’s SmartHome smart home solution. More detailed reviews, about features, usage, basic settings… and especially the ability to intelligently learn user habits and receive voice commands will continue to be sent to you. read in the future after I have time to experience it more fully.

Thanks for watching!!!
