Non-invasive wireless solutions for a made-to-measure smart home
Time to read: 4 min

A wireless smart home allows you to exceed installation limits in many situations. It requires less complex wiring and offers a range of application and interaction options that make it suitable for a wide variety of contexts. Let’s see how wireless solutions can benefit residential settings, the needs they meet and how to integrate them into traditional systems.

The advantages of a wireless system for smart homes

A modern wireless system for smart homes offers several advantages due to its flexibility and the ease with which you can implement individual devices, manage the system intuitively and monitor every aspect of the home.


Firstly, wireless communication means less invasive installation work, as fewer cables need to be added during the renovation or construction phase. This reduces the installation time and costs for the home owner, and allows new devices to be integrated at a later stage, without having to foresee every possible variable in the initial design.


For example, if you want to add a push button to turn off the garden lights from your bedroom, it can be connected to the existing wireless system, without having to cut channels in the walls for wiring.

The advantage of a wireless home automation system for the end user

There are many benefits for the end user, particularly with regard to sustainability, well-being, safety and energy savings.


The control plates in smart home systems offer an intuitive and customisable interface on which to monitor consumption and receive alerts in the event of danger or faults. Thanks to the Zigbee wireless communication standard, the main smart speakers available on the market can be integrated into the system, allowing the addition of voice mode for interaction with scenarios, lights, roller blinds and much more.


Finally, the possibility of installing the smart home system in a wireless configuration allows homes and stores to enjoy most of the benefits of modern home automation, even where there are no plans for renovation work, thus greatly extending the application scope of home automation.

Meet different needs with wireless home automation

What are the options for configuring a wireless home automation system? The possibilities are numerous and adapt to the most varied residential needs.


The system can be managed via smartphone, control plate or voice commands, depending on the preferences and habits of the occupants. In the event of internet failure, the basic functions, such as temperature control, lighting and roller blinds, remain operative via the main controls and switches. These are in fact wired to ensure that they can operate independently of radio frequency communications and are activated on completion of installation, even before the system is configured.


Heating and lighting can be programmed and customised, plus energy consumption trends can be monitored at any time, to verify whether the desired efficiency is being maintained.


The automation of roller shutters and blinds, irrigation, audio and video entertainment systems and much more can be set up, so that numerous functions around the home can be controlled and programmed, without needing to move around physically.


Even the charging of your electric vehicle can be monitored and controlled on the interface, without you needing to go to the garage in person.


With regard to safety, wireless smart homes allow the integration of gas, smoke and water alarms, and intrusion detection and surveillance systems, as well as protection and automatic resetting of the electrical system to prevent faults and power surges.


Even switch plates play an active role and help control the environment in the highest performing wireless systems. Some have displays that communicate operating data and indicate alarms detected by the system to the user. Others – also wireless – do not require batteries, as they are automatically powered through the energy generated by pressing the buttons. Several of these can be fixed on the wall at various points, or placed on surfaces like remote controls.


If the walls already have conventional switches, there are network-connected switches that fit into the housing of wired systems, with no need for modications to the wall.

The best settings for wireless home automation solutions

Home and building automation solutions can be applied in numerous environments. Wireless solutions adapt particularly well to residential and small commercial settings, thanks to their flexibility and ease of installation.


Wireless systems allow the possibility of combining conventional wall controls, for users less accustomed to interfacing with technology, with smart control via smartphone and voice commands. This is an advantage for architects and drafters, who can continue following the principles established for conventional systems during the design stage.


A wired electrical system, typical in residential settings, can be installed, with conventional wired features (lights, roller shutters, and temperature control) to which wireless functions are then added, such as monitoring of power consumption, surveillance, and integration with voice assistants and IoT devices.


By integrating wireless devices into a conventional system – instead of replacing it – the possibilities of use increase enormously, providing the reliability of a wired electric system, together with the advanced, interactive features of smart home automation devices, at one and the same time.


It is an exceptionally flexible system that adapts to the widest range of needs, both for end users and for professionals designing and installing systems in new houses or homes undergoing renovation, with lower costs and countless configuration options.
