Taxonomy graph


As it can be seen on the graph above, Smart Houses can be divided into three main categories:
We have made a classification of existing smart house projects according the taxonomy proposed above. The classified projects have been chosen based on their visibility and we accept that the list is non-exhaustive.

Evolution model

The elements of the Taxonomy can be reorganized to form a logical sequence presented on the evolution model below.


This model was created focusing on the improvement that each type of house brings to people’s life. For example it is very easy and convenient to control various devices using voice, but it is even easier to program the house once, so there would be no need to control any devices, as they would be controlled automatically by the house.
