|Consider using wireless home automation if:
|Otherwise install wired home automation devices and structured wiring for:
- Higher security so physical access is required for connection, not just
a nearby wireless RF device.
- Higher quality audio and video distribution in home
theatre and multi-room audio/video.
- Reduced component costs when wireless RF transmitters/receivers and
antennas are not required.
- Better immunity to EMI from noise sources such as fluorescent lights,
motors and RF transmitters.
- Freedom from monitoring and replacing batteries in some wireless home
- Faster LAN transmission speeds for file transfer or video streaming in
|Wireless home automation uses Radio Frequency (RF) communications
instead of electrical cables. Examples include wireless C-Bus devices,
wireless security sensors, wireless computer LAN components, and wireless audio and video remote controls
and distribution devices.
Wireless home automation is not to be confused with wireless IP user interfaces. For example,
a smart phone or Internet tablet with wireless connection to a Wiser for C-Bus Home Automation Controller
over your LAN WiFi or wireless Internet connection is not wireless home automation - It is instead a wireless
user IP interface to a wired home automation system, through a Wiser Home Controller.
While you may have a partially wireless connection to the Wiser, the Wiser and the other C-Bus home automation
devices have wired connections between them.
You may also implement a hybrid wired and wireless home automation system, in which a wireless C-Bus home automation network
is integrated with a wired C-Bus system through a C-Bus
Wireless Gateway. If professionally implemented this can give you the best of both worlds.
