Description

Eine Vielzahl elektronisch gesteuerter Funktionen im komfortablen Haushalt erforderten bereits ein intelligentes System, mit dem man viele Regelprozesse überschaubar steuern, bedienen und kontrollieren kann. Die Gebäude­ systematik instabus EIB löste bereits viele Teilprobleme. Nicht einbezogen sind Teillösungen mit Hilfe von In­ frarotbedienungen, deren Anzahl im modernen Wohnzimmer bereits auf mehrere Stückzahlen angewachsen ist. Die Stadtwerke bringen eigenständige Lösungen auf dem Markt, um u. a. das Ablesen von Zählern ohne Hausbesuche durchführen zu können. Zusammenfassend kann gesagt werden, daß eine Vielzahl von Einzellösungen bereits auf dem Markt sind bzw. demnächst Anwendung finden.A large number of electronically controlled functions in a comfortable household already required an intelligent one System with which you can manageably control, operate and control many control processes. The buildings systematic instabus EIB has already solved many sub-problems. Partial solutions with the help of In are not included infrared controls, the number of which has already increased to several pieces in the modern living room. Stadtwerke bring independent solutions to the market to: a. reading counters without To be able to make home visits. In summary, it can be said that a variety of Individual solutions are already on the market or will soon be used.
Das Installationssystem EIB (European Installation Bus), in Deutschland unter dem Namen "instabus" am Markt, arbeitet mit Tastsensoren, die mit Hilfe eines PC und entsprechender Software vorprogrammiert wurden. Sie geben ihre Informationen als digitale Telegramme über die Steuerleitung an die sogenannten Aktoren weiter. Diese wandeln das empfangene Bustelegramm in Schalt-, Steuer- oder Dimmfunktionen um.The installation system EIB (European Installation Bus), in Germany under the name "instabus" on Markt, works with touch sensors that have been preprogrammed using a PC and appropriate software. They pass on their information as digital telegrams via the control line to the so-called actuators. These convert the received bus telegram into switching, control or dimming functions.
Nachteilig ist, daß in verschiedenen Zimmern, an diversen Geräten jeweils Bedientableaus, Visuali­ sierungsmonitore oder Bildschirme zu installieren sind. (Haus und Wohnung 12/96).The disadvantage is that in different rooms, on various devices, control panels, Visuali installation monitors or screens must be installed. (House and apartment 12/96).
Der Nachteil dieser Lösungen besteht also in seiner Vielseitigkeit der Bedienung.The disadvantage of these solutions is their versatility of use.
Unter Einbeziehung eines Servers bei Vernetzung aller infrage kommenden Geräte ist eine einheitliche Steuerung z. B. über einen Tischcomputer realisierbar.Including a server when networking all the devices in question is a uniform one Control z. B. realizable via a desktop computer.
Mit Hilfe dieses Tischcomputers oder eines PC ist es infolge seines Anschlusses am Server möglich, vom z. B. Wohnzimmer aus alle infrage kommenden Geräte der Haus- und Wohnungstechnik zu bedienen bzw. Kontrollen auszuüben. Hierzu zählen auch die Bedienungsfunktionen der Infrarot-Fernsehbedienungen. Infolge des Zusammenwirkens der Software der Computer mit den Wohnungs- und Hausgeräten ist es auch z. B. möglich, auf der Basis eines Modems einer Fritzcard oder über ein Intranet die Ablesung der Verbrauchsmengen an Energie, Gas und Wasser durch die Versorgungsbetriebe von deren Standort aus vorzunehmen, ohne daß ein Außendienstmitarbeiter die Verbraucher aufsuchen muß. Selbst die Wartung sowie Behebung technischer Probleme von Geräten können, soweit sie über Computeranzeigen (z. B. über Sensoren) erkennbar sind, von den Installationsbetrieben von deren Standort teilweise erkannt und zielgerichtet mit weniger Aufwand behoben werden.With the help of this desktop computer or a PC it is possible due to its connection to the server, from z. B. To operate the living room from all relevant devices for home and apartment technology or To exercise controls. This also includes the operating functions of the infrared television controls. As a result the interaction of the software of the computer with the home and household appliances is also z. B. possible, on the basis of a modem of a Fritzcard or via an intranet the reading of the consumption amounts of energy, gas and water by the utilities from their location without a Sales representatives must visit consumers. Even the maintenance and repair of technical As far as they are recognizable via computer displays (e.g. sensors), problems with devices can be solved by the Installation companies are partially recognized by their location and corrected with less effort become.
Die Installation eines Servers im eigenen Haus bedeutet allerdings einen relativ hohen finanziellen Aufwand. Außerdem muß man davon ausgehen, daß nicht jeder Anwender ein Computerspezialist ist. Es könnte zu Problemen und zusätzlichen Kosten kommen, falls es Unregelmäßigkeiten sowohl bei der Hard- als auch bei der Software geben sollte.However, installing a server in-house means a relatively high financial outlay. You also have to assume that not every user is a computer specialist. It could be too Problems and additional costs arise if there are irregularities in both the hardware and the Software should give.
Die Nutzung eines Servers eines Online-Unternehmens über die Telefonleitung würde diese Probleme lösen. Allerdings ist hierzu eine gesonderte Software erforderlich, die unter anderem Gegenstand dieses Patentes ist.Using an online company's server over the phone line would solve these problems. However, this requires separate software, which is the subject of this patent, among other things.
Alle in die Steuerung einzubeziehenden Anlagen und Geräte der Haustechnik sowie die Computer werden online über die Telefonleitung an einem überregionalen Server angeschlossen. Der Anschluß einer Vielzahl von Haus­ halten an einem Server ist preiswerter, als daß jeder Haushalt seinen eigenen Server unterhält. Das Online- Unternehmen kann eine ständig besetzte Betreuungszentrale unterhalten, um telefonisch bzw. durch Fernwartung auf Fehler bzw. Ausfällen Einfluß zu nehmen bzw. durch Techniker vor Ort wirksam zu werden. (Ähnlich dem Telefondienst).All of the systems and devices for domestic technology to be included in the control system, as well as the computers, go online connected to a national server via the telephone line. Connection of a variety of house sticking to a server is cheaper than having every household running its own server. The online Company can maintain a constantly staffed care center to call or through Remote maintenance to influence errors or failures or to be effective by on-site technicians. (Similar to the telephone service).
Die Einbeziehung der Energieunternehmen würde auch die Ablesung der Verbrauchsmengen für Strom, Wasser und Gas sichern.The involvement of energy companies would also read the consumption amounts for electricity, water and secure gas.
Um den notwendigen Verbraucher- bzw. Datenschutz zu sichern gibt es bereits technische Lösungen, auf die ich hier nicht eingehen möchte.In order to ensure the necessary consumer and data protection, there are already technical solutions that I refer to does not want to go into here.

  1. Der Online-Server für Privathaushalte ist ein Prozeßrechner (Server) der mittels Telefonnetz bzw. Intranet mit den infrage kommenden Haushalten vernetzt wird, dadurch gekennzeichnet, daß Privathaushalte ihre Haushaltsgeräte wie Fernseher, Musikanlagen, Sicherheitseinrichtungen, Heizungsanlagen, Wasseruhren, Stromzähler, Telefone, Fax usw. von ihrem Computer (PC oder TC) aus mit Hilfe diesen Servers mittels einer gesonderten Software steuern. Der Server wird außerhalb des Hauses überregional von einem ONLINE - Unternehmen betrieben. Das Ziel besteht darin, vom häuslichen Computer aus die "Intelligente Haustechnik" über den Server des ONLINE-Dienstes zu steuern, ohne hierfür eine eigene teuere Serveranlage zu installieren. Die Nutzung eines Prozessrechners (Servers) im ONLINE-Betrieb kommt für die Anwender bedeutend günstiger und ist bei Wartungsmaßnahmen (z. B. Fernwartung) effektiver.The online server for private households is a process computer (server) which is networked with the households in question by telephone network or intranet, characterized in that private households have their household appliances such as televisions, music systems, security systems, heating systems, water meters, electricity meters, telephones, faxes, etc control from your computer (PC or TC) with the help of this server using separate software. The server is operated outside of the home by an ONLINE company. The goal is to control the "intelligent home technology" from the home computer via the server of the ONLINE service without installing an expensive server system.
