Smart Home

The Smart Home is one of two specialist teaching areas within Sir Charles Kao UTC, focused on our specialisms of Medical Technology and Smart Environments.

The flat will provide the students with a distinctive opportunity to gain knowledge and experience of configuring and using the latest smart technologies.  As part of their curriculum students will learn how they can centrally manage all smart home systems such as lighting, heating and cooling, audio and video features.  These systems can provide intelligent automation allowing an automatic response to events around the flat, like arriving home, security breaches or burst pipes whilst also providing event notifications to the homeowner by text or email.
