SCADA Systems and Home Automation


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

The Future of Home Automation Systems and Home Controls – SCADA systems are extremely useful for numerous applications which are integrated into Home Automation and Home Control Systems. We now rely heavily on SCADA systems, they are here to stay, and they will just keep getting better with technology.


SCADA Systems and the Future of Home Electrical and Automation

What are the MERIT & DEMARITS OF SCADA SYSTEM.

This electrical question came from: S.M, a Homeowner from Dhaka, Bangladesh

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question S.M.

A Brief History of SCADA Systems

  • SCADA, Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition system have been around for a long time, and are heavily relied on for manufacturing, especially in industrial applications.
  • Automation and control systems are increasingly being installed into our homes which provide efficiency and energy savings.
  • A SCADA system may be included in a stand alone device, or it may be a large system of devices that are networked together and controlled by one or more computer systems.

The Future of Home Automation Systems and Home Controls

  • SCADA systems are extremely useful for numerous applications which are integrated into Home Automation and Home Control Systems.
  • The demerits would be that they are only as good as their technological components, the code that is written for their control and how the database is generated and what the data is used for.
  • Personally, I love technology, and I love programming. As the Word press programmers put it “Code is Poetry”, and I agree. The beauty of programming code and the machine that processes the instructions is that the performance can never be matched by a human.
  • A computer does not have a mood, it will never get tired, it can function in the dark, and it does not need to be encouraged to do a good job. However the value of the result is based on the superiority of the code and the data it processes. As it is said, GIGO – Garbage In, Garbage Out.
  • We now rely heavily on SCADA systems, they are here to stay, and they will just keep getting better with technology.

    How can I design and integrate a SCADA system into home appliances?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Obinna,
      To successfully create a SCADA system to be used for home appliances you would first need to identify the desired functions or the functions and operations that the SCADA system would provide, this way you will be able to identify the number of analog or digital modules needed and the types of activities that will be programmed into the controller. In other words, begin with the end in mind, therefore the processes will identify the size of the SCADA system to be used and the necessary components and electrical materials that will need to be provided and installed.
