  The display device CV displays the portal site on the liquid crystal display by opening the Web content data (file) received from the integrated management device TM with a Web browser executed by the control unit 50. When the touch panel is operated on the icon of the subsystem SS1, the Web browser transmits a Web content transmission request message by accessing the link destination URL displayed by the icon.

  When the equipment unit controller C1 or C1 ′ control unit 10 that has received the transmission request message transmits the Web content data held by the equipment device controller C1 to the display device CV, the data (file) is transmitted by the Web browser executed by the control unit 50. ) Is displayed, the Web content (for example, homepage) of the subsystem SS1 is displayed on the display unit 52. In this homepage, the names of the equipment devices X1 to X4 included in the subsystem SS1 and characters indicating the installation locations (for example, “living air conditioner”, “living lighting”, etc.), and the operating states of the respective equipment devices X1 to X4 , A button corresponding to an operation for inverting the operation state of each equipment device X1 to X4, and the like are displayed, and other web contents are linked to these buttons. Therefore, it is possible to monitor (confirm) the operating state of each equipment device X1 to X4 from the information displayed on the homepage.

  Here, in the case of performing control for reversing the operating state of any of the equipment devices Xm, for example, control for turning off the currently lit lighting fixture (facility device X2), the operating state of the equipment device X4 is reversed on the homepage. The touch panel is operated on a button corresponding to the operation.

  Then, a message indicating that the button has been operated by the Web browser, that is, a message (request message) for requesting to turn off the lighting device (facility device X2) is sent to the network of the facility device controller C1 or C1 ′ through the home network. Sent to an address.

  Then, the control unit 10 of the equipment device controller C1 or C1 'that has received this request message performs a control process for turning off the luminaire (facility equipment X2). Thereafter, the control unit 10 transmits Web content data corresponding to the turn-off of the lighting fixture (equipment device X2) to the display device CV, and opens the data (file) by a Web browser executed by the control unit 50 of the display device CV. As a result, other Web contents of the subsystem SS1 are displayed on the display unit 52.

  In the Web content, the operating state of the lighting fixture (equipment device X2) is changed from lighting to extinguishing. However, if the control of the equipment Xm fails for some reason, the control unit 10 creates a response message indicating that the control has failed and transmits the response message from the communication unit 11 to the display device CV, and then displays the response message on the display unit 52 of the display device CV. An error message (characters indicating that control of the requested equipment Xm has failed) is displayed.

  Next, an operation in the case of controlling (switching) and monitoring the operation state (warning state or non-warning state) of the security receiver SR using the display device CV will be described.

  First, when the operation button 53a of the operation unit 53 is pressed, the control unit 50 transmits a portal site transmission request message from the communication unit 51 to the integrated management apparatus TM. The integrated management device TM that has received the message transmits the portal site data read from the storage unit (not shown) to the display device CV that is the transmission request source.

  The display device CV displays the portal site on the display unit 52 by opening the data (file) received from the integrated management device TM with a Web browser executed by the control unit 50. When the touch panel is operated on the icon of the subsystem (security system) SS2, the Web address is linked to the link destination URL (the IP address of the Web content group held by the security controller C2) displayed by the icon. A Web content transmission request message is transmitted by the browser. When the control unit 30 of the security controller C2 that has received the transmission request message transmits the Web content data held by itself to the display device CV, the data (file) is opened by the Web browser executed by the control unit 50. Thus, the Web content (for example, homepage) of the security system SS2 is displayed on the display unit 52.

  In this homepage, the characters indicating the names and installation locations of the security receiver SR and the security devices Y1, Y2 included in the security system SS2, the characters indicating the operating status of the security receiver SR, the detection status of the security devices Y1, Y2, etc. The buttons corresponding to the operation for inverting the operation state of the security receiver SR are displayed, and other web contents are linked to these buttons. Therefore, it is possible to monitor (confirm) the operation state of the security receiver SR, the detection status of each security device Y1, Y2, and the like from information displayed on the homepage.

To operate. Then, a message indicating that the button has been operated by the Web browser, that is, a message requesting switching control for switching the security receiver SR to the alert state (request message) is addressed to the network address of the security controller C2 through the home network. Sent.

  Upon receiving this request message, the control unit 30 of the security controller C2 transmits a command (switch command) from the communication unit 32 to the security receiver SR, so that the operation state of the security receiver SR is changed from the non-warning state. Switch to vigilance. Thereafter, the control unit 30 transmits Web content data corresponding to the operation state (warning state) of the security receiver SR to the display device CV, and the data (file) by the Web browser executed by the control unit 50 of the display device CV. The other web contents of the subsystem SS2 are displayed on the display unit 52 by opening. In the Web content, the operation state of the security receiver SR is changed from the non-warning state to the warning state.

  Next, in the security system SS2, an operation when the security controller C2 acquires detection information indicating an occurrence of an abnormality (for example, occurrence of a fire or gas leak or intrusion of a suspicious person) from the security receiver SR will be described.

  When an abnormality is detected in any one of the security devices Y1 and Y2, and the control unit 30 of the security controller C2 acquires detection information on the occurrence of the abnormality from the security receiver SR, the control unit 30 transmits a response message (hereinafter referred to as “detection information”) including the detection information. This is called a cooperation message) and broadcasted in the home network at the same time, and a message for notifying the occurrence of an abnormality is also transmitted to the center device SV.

  In the display device CV that has received the cooperation message, the control unit 50 determines the content of the abnormality that has occurred from the detection information included in the cooperation message received (for example, the occurrence of a fire or gas leak or the intrusion of a suspicious person). An alarm sound or a voice message corresponding to the content is caused to ring on the speaker unit 55, and an alarm display corresponding to the content of the abnormality is displayed on the display unit 52.

  In addition, the center device SV notifies the occurrence of the abnormality to the householder who is out by sending the abnormality notification message received from the security controller C2 to the mail address of the mobile phone MP registered in advance.

  On the other hand, in other controllers that have received the cooperation message, that is, the equipment device controller C1 or C1 ′ and the image transfer controller C3, an abnormality that has occurred from the detection information included in the cooperation message received by the control unit 10 and the control unit 40. The content is judged, and a control operation corresponding to the content of the abnormality is executed if necessary in accordance with a predetermined rule. For example, it is possible to make it easy to evacuate when the control unit 10 turns on the luminaire when a fire is occurring. However, if a gas leak has occurred, if the operating state of the equipment Xm is switched, the spark generated when the power is turned on or off may ignite the leaked gas. Even if the control request message is received, the control for all the equipment devices Xm is invalidated.

  Next, the operation when the image captured by the intercom system DS (sub-system SS3) doorphone slave unit DS is stored in the center device SV and the stored image is reproduced by the terminal device (for example, the mobile phone MP) will be described. To do. However, in the following description, a case where only an image is stored will be described, but a call voice can be stored in the center device SV together with the image and can be reproduced by the terminal device.

  As described above, when the visitor presses the call button, the image transmission function of the doorphone slave unit DS is enabled, and the image (image data) captured by the camera of the doorphone slave unit DS is input to the interphone master unit IM. Is transmitted. The intercom master unit IM transmits the image data received from the door phone slave unit DS to the image transfer controller C3. In the image transfer controller C3, the image data received from the interphone master unit IM is compressed by the control unit 40 using a predetermined compression method (for example, MPEG4 for moving images, JPEG for still images, etc.) and compressed. The received image data is transferred as a response message to the center apparatus SV through the home network and the external network. The center device SV records (accumulates) the image data received from the image transfer controller C3 on a recording medium such as a hard disk.

  Further, when the answering machine function of the interphone master unit IM is set to be valid by the display device CV via the image transfer controller C3, a message for notifying the answering machine setting is transmitted from the display device CV to the center device SV. . Then, when the visitor presses the call button while the answering machine function is set to be effective, the image transmission function of the doorphone slave unit DS is enabled and the image captured by the camera of the doorphone slave unit DS (image) Data) is transmitted to the interphone master unit IM, and the interphone master unit IM transmits the image data received from the door phone slave unit DS to the image transfer controller C3 and stores (records) the image data in the storage unit 45. Further, the image data received from the interphone master unit IM is compressed by the control unit 40, and the compressed image data is transferred as a response message to the center apparatus SV through the home network and the external network.

  In the center device SV, when the image data is transferred from the image transfer controller C3, a message is transmitted to the e-mail address of the mobile phone MP registered in advance to notify a visitor to the outing, and the image data Is stored in the recording medium.

  When the householder who has received the message wishes to confirm the visitor, the mobile phone MP may transmit an image reproduction request message to the center device SV. The center device SV that has received the request message processes (converts) the image data stored in the recording medium into a file format that can be reproduced by the mobile phone MP, and transmits the processed image data to the mobile phone MP. As a result, the housekeeper who is out can check the visitor by viewing the image reproduced by the mobile phone MP.

  Next, an operation in a case where an image captured by the door phone slave unit DS is reproduced on a terminal device (for example, the mobile phone MP or the display device CV) using the image monitor function of the interphone master unit IM will be described.

  When a request message for an image monitor is transmitted from the mobile phone MP to the center device SV, the center device SV sends the request message to the image transfer controller C3 when polled by the image transfer controller C3 of the interphone system SS3. Send. In the image transfer controller C3 that has received this image monitor request message, the control unit 40 transmits a control signal for enabling the image monitor function of the interphone master unit IM from the communication unit 42, and receives this control signal. The image monitor function of the intercom base unit IM is enabled. Then, the interphone master unit IM activates the image transmission function of the door phone slave unit DS by supplying power via the telephone line, receives the image captured by the camera of the door phone slave unit DS, and displays the image data as an image. The data is transmitted to the transfer controller C3. In the image transfer controller C3, the control unit 40 compresses the image data received from the interphone master unit IM, and transfers the compressed image data as a response message to the center device SV through the home network and the external network. Then, the image data transferred by the center device SV is transmitted to the mobile phone MP, and as a result, the image captured by the door phone slave unit DS can be reproduced and confirmed by the mobile phone MP.

  The homepage of the intercom system SS3 is provided with an icon for enabling the image monitor function of the interphone master unit IM, and when the operation of the icon is accepted by the operation unit 53 of the display device CV, The control unit 50 transmits an image monitor request message to the image transfer controller C3 through the communication unit 51. In the image transfer controller C3 that has received this image monitor request message, the control unit 40 transmits a control signal for enabling the image monitor function of the interphone master unit IM from the communication unit 42, and receives this control signal. The image monitor function of the intercom base unit IM is enabled. Then, the interphone master unit IM activates the image transmission function of the door phone slave unit DS by supplying power via the telephone line, receives the image captured by the camera of the door phone slave unit DS, and displays the image data as an image. The data is transmitted to the transfer controller C3. In the image transfer controller C3, the control unit 40 compresses the image data received from the interphone master unit IM, and transfers the compressed image data to the display device CV as a response message. In the display control means CV, the received image data is decompressed by the control unit 50 and output to the display unit 52, so that the image captured by the door phone slave unit DS is displayed on the display unit 52.

  By the way, in general, when going out, the power of the air conditioner and the lighting fixture is turned off and the security receiver SR is switched to a warning state, or when going to bed, the lighting fixture is turned off and the security receiver SR is switched to a warning state. In a specific situation, a plurality of predetermined controls are often performed at the same time. In such a case, it is very difficult to input an operation for each control using the operation unit 53 (touch panel) of the display device CV. This is annoying work.

  Therefore, in the present embodiment, symbols corresponding to three types of situations such as going out, staying at home, and sleeping are displayed on the screen of the portal site provided by the integrated management apparatus TM (for example, “going out”, “at home”, “sleeping”). Buttons B1 to B3 (see FIG. 7)), and when a selection operation of any of the buttons (hereinafter referred to as “collective button”) is accepted in the operation unit 53 of the display device CV, If one or more control request messages that are associated with the situation in advance, for example, a “going out” collective button is operated, the air conditioner and all lights for the equipment controller C1, C1 ′ A control request message instructing to turn off the appliance (turning off and turning off the power), and instructing the security controller C2 to switch the security receiver SR to a warning state. Create a control request message by the control unit 50 of the display device CV, respectively via the communication unit 51 the two kinds of control request message created for equipment controller C1, C1 'and security controller C2. When the operation unit 53 accepts the operation of the “going out” batch button, the control unit 50 displays characters such as “accepting outing mode” on the liquid crystal display of the display unit 52.

  On the other hand, the equipment controller C1, C1 ′ performs control to turn off the air conditioner and all the lighting fixtures according to the control request message received from the display device CV, and the security controller C2 performs control received from the display device CV. Control is performed to switch the operating state of the security receiver SR to the alert state in response to the request message. That is, when the user goes out, the air conditioner and all the lighting fixtures can be turned off and the security receiver SR can be switched to a warning state only by operating the “going out” collective button on the operation unit 53 of the display device CV. As compared with a case where an operation for each control is input by the operation unit 53 of the display device CV, there are advantages that work efficiency is high and operability is improved.

  Next, the operation in the case of controlling and monitoring the equipment Xm from outside the house using a portable terminal device (for example, the mobile phone MP) will be described here with respect to the external network (Internet) with respect to each controller Cn. If the web server function of this controller always opens the port, for example, there is a high possibility that a malicious intruder will cause an abnormality in the system. Therefore, the web server function of each controller Cn normally closes the port while closing the port. If the request message received from the portable terminal device is periodically polled to the device SV and held in the center device SV, the request message from the center device SV is polled by the controller Cn that is the destination of the request message. The home network is protected by transferring

  As described above, each controller Cn periodically polls the center device SV, and if the center device SV does not hold a request message from the mobile phone MP, the center device SV simply receives an acknowledgment (ACK). ) Is simply returned to the controller Cn. Here, the householder uses the mobile phone MP to transmit a request message (for example, a monitoring request message for the operating state of the lighting fixture) to the center device SV, and after the monitoring request message is held by the center device SV, the equipment controller When polled from C1 or C1 ′, the center device SV transmits (transfers) the monitoring request message received and held from the mobile phone MP to the equipment device controller C1 or C1 ′. In the equipment device controller C1 or C1 ′ that has received this monitoring request message, the control unit 10 creates a monitoring response message indicating the current operating state (for example, lighting) of the lighting fixture (facility equipment X2) and sends it to the center apparatus SV. Send back. The monitoring response message is transferred from the center device SV to the mobile phone MP, and the monitoring response message transferred from the center device SV is displayed on the liquid crystal screen of the mobile phone MP, so that the operating state (lighting) of the lighting fixture can be confirmed. .

  Further, the householder transmits a request message (for example, a control request message for turning off the lighting fixture) to the center device SV using the mobile phone MP, and after the control request message is held in the center device SV, the equipment device controller C1 or When polled from C1 ′, the center device SV transmits (transfers) the control request message received and held from the mobile phone MP to the equipment device controller C1 or C1 ′. In the equipment device controller C1 or C1 'that has received this control request message, the control unit 10 performs a control process for turning off the luminaire (facility equipment X2). Thereafter, the control unit 10 creates a control response message indicating that the lighting fixture (equipment device X2) is turned off, and returns the control response message to the center device SV. The control response message is transferred from the center device SV to the mobile phone MP, and the control response message transferred from the center device SV is displayed on the liquid crystal screen of the mobile phone MP. However, when it takes a considerable time (for example, several minutes) from sending the control request message to returning the control response message, a message indicating that the control request message has been received is sent from the center device SV to the mobile phone MP. It is desirable to send.

  By the way, in the above-described system, the Web server function of the center apparatus SV creates Web contents that provide general information such as weather information (weather forecast), traffic information, and fortune-telling information to each dwelling unit. It can be provided in response to a request from the display device SV provided in each dwelling unit. Also, it has a function of collecting history information of power consumption from each dwelling unit, performing statistical processing, and providing Web contents indicating the result of the statistical processing in response to a request from the display device SV provided in each dwelling unit. Yes.

  In the display device CV, the web contents provided by the center server SV, the controllers C1 (C1 ′) to C3, the integrated management device TM, and the display device CV are provided on the screen of the display unit 52. By displaying them simultaneously, a plurality of pieces of information can be browsed at once, and in order to facilitate information comparison, the Web browser of the control unit 50 displays Web content (referred to as center-side Web content) provided from the center device SV. In addition to performing a process for preliminarily securing a screen area to be displayed, Web contents (local Web contents) provided from local devices such as the controllers C1 (C1 ′) to C3 and the integrated management apparatus TM outside the screen area. The screen area to be displayed is set, and at the same time, the center side web content and the local side web content It has a function of performing display control to display the contents, and the display content is stored in the storage unit 54, the URL of the Web content (referred to as the base side URL) corresponding to the layout information of the screen provided by itself, and the display This is set based on the URLs of the center-side and local-side Web contents to be executed.

Thus, on the portal site screen provided by the integrated management device TM, the symbols corresponding to the three types of situations of going out, staying at home, and sleeping (for example, the button B1 displaying “outing”, “at home”, “sleeping”) are displayed. To B3) on the same screen as the local-side Web content shown in FIG. 8A and the center-side Web content (for example, center-side Web content providing weather information as shown in FIG. 8B). In the case of display, the control unit 50 reads out layout information corresponding to the URLs of these Web contents from the storage unit 54 and secures each screen area in this case, as shown in FIG. As shown in FIG. 8B, the content display screen area (I) is secured, and the other screen areas are set as local web content display screen areas (II). Both Web contents are simultaneously displayed on the display unit 52. This allows the user to obtain weather information and to perform button operations on the same screen, B4 and B5 in FIGS. A button B6 indicates a button for switching to a menu screen.

  By the way, in order for the center device SV to browse Web content that provides information that changes every moment, such as weather information, the control unit 50 accesses the URL of the center-side Web content stored in the storage unit 54. When a specific character (for example, <reload 60min>) registered in advance in the storage unit 54 is recognized from the character string of the Web content data distributed in this way, the Web content is displayed on the display unit 52, Based on 60 min of the character string, the process of accessing the URL of the same Web content is performed after 60 minutes, and the data of the center side Web content is received again. As a result, the latest Web content can be browsed on the display device CV.

  FIGS. 9A to 9C show an example in which Web content of weather information is updated every 6 hours.

  As such Web contents, there are Web contents such as fortune telling, slogans, headline news, seasonal background images, information on gasoline prices, etc. in addition to the above-mentioned weather forecast.

  Therefore, the following method may be adopted so that the user selects and displays general Web contents such as weather information, fortune telling, and traffic information described above.

  First, the weather information Web content as shown in FIG. 10A, the fortune telling Web content as shown in FIG. 10B, and the traffic information Web content as shown in FIG. When the Web server can be provided as the center-side Web content, the display device CV preliminarily displays URLs of preview screens corresponding to these Web content (for example, “http: //yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/ preview1.html ”,“ http: //yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/preview2.html ”,“ http: //yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/preview3.html ”) are registered in the storage unit 54, and these The URL of the preview screen is acquired by accessing at a predetermined time interval by the control unit 50, and the acquired content of the preview screen is displayed in a screen area corresponding to the center-side Web content.

  When the user performs a touch operation on the displayed preview screen, based on the operation input information, the control unit 50 character string indicating the URL of the original Web content corresponding to the preview screen from the content data of the preview screen. Is extracted and stored in the storage unit 54. This character string is composed of a character string starting with, for example, REAL URL =. For example, in the case of the Web content of weather information as shown in FIG. 10A, <REAL URL = "http: //yyy.yyy .yyy.yyy / osaka_today.htm "> is included in the data, and the control unit 50 extracts the character string from the data and stores it in the storage unit 54. Thereafter, this URL is stored at regular time intervals. Access processing is performed. As a result, as shown in FIG. 10D, the weather information Web content is displayed on the same screen as the local Web content.

  When the user wants to view Web content other than the weather information Web content, the user only needs to touch the display screen of the displayed weather information Web content. In this case, the control unit 50 displays the operation input information. Based on this, after deleting the data of the URL “http: //yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/osaka_today.htm” stored in the storage unit 54, the above-described processing for sequentially displaying the preview screen is performed. Do. When the preview screen corresponding to the desired Web content is displayed, if the user touches the display screen in the same manner as described above, the same processing as described above is performed, and the selected Web content is displayed. It is displayed in the screen area of the center side Web content of the unit 52.

  The URL of general center-side web content such as the weather information described above is stored in advance in the storage unit 54. For example, the center-side web content associated with the local-side web content information is used. In the case of displaying simultaneously, in this embodiment, the URL of the center side Web content corresponding to the local side Web content is not stored in advance, but the URL template of the center side Web content is stored in the storage unit 54. In addition, when accessing the URL of the corresponding local web content, the URL of the center web content associated with the local web content is generated by the template, and the generated URL is accessed. Yes.

  For example, when displaying the web content of the power consumption at home as the local web content on the display unit 52 of the display device CV, the center side of the information corresponding to the power consumption of other dwelling units collected by the center device SV Used when acquiring Web content.

  Specifically, as shown in FIG. 11A, the local Web content displays, for example, history information of power consumption for a predetermined month, and “day” of power consumption of other dwelling units is displayed on the screen. This is used when statistical processing information (center-side Web content) to be compared, such as average “day comparison”, can be selected and displayed on the same screen.

  Thus, when the local web content that displays the cumulative power consumption of the equipment device Xm such as an air conditioner for the current month is acquired, the control unit 50 first displays the local web content shown in FIG. Is displayed next to the screen area of the center-side Web content secured in advance, on the left side of the screen in the figure. In this Web content, operation buttons Ba and Bb for selecting, for comparison, daily average or daily comparison information of the accumulated power consumption of the air conditioner of the current month of each dwelling unit collected by the center device SV are displayed. When any one of the operation buttons Ba or Bb is operated, the control unit 50 captures the operation input information through the operation unit 53, and simultaneously performs the generation processing of the URL of the corresponding center side web content.

  Here, for example, a template “http: //yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/ <LOCAL CONTENTS> / <CALC TYPE> .html” is stored in the storage unit 54 in advance as a template of the center-side Web content. And

  Then, the control unit 50 refers to the URL character string “http: 〃xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx / energy / aircon / accumulate.html” (URL corresponding to the accumulated power consumption of the air conditioner) described above. Extract the string “energy / aircon” from the string and apply this string to the <LOCAL CONTENTS> in the template above. If the above-mentioned operation input information is “daily average”, a character string “day_average” corresponding to the operation button Ba is extracted from the data of the local Web content, and this character string is <CALC of the above template. Apply to TYPE>. As a result, the URL of the corresponding Web content on the center side “http: //yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/energy/aircon/day_average.html” is generated. By accessing this generated URL, Thus, the center-side Web content as shown in FIG. 10B is acquired, and the control unit 50 displays the center-side Web content in the screen area reserved for the center-side Web content of the display unit 52. Are simultaneously displayed on the same screen as shown in FIG. 10C.

  Thus, the user can compare the power consumption of the air conditioner at home with the transition of the average power consumption in other dwelling units. Of course, if the operation button Bb is operated, the control unit 50 generates the URL of the Web content prepared by the center apparatus SV corresponding to the statistical process of “daily average” in the same manner as described above, and accesses the URL. As a result, the Web content can be displayed on the display unit 52.

  As described above, the template includes a variable part including a fixed part, a part <LOCAL CONTENTS> indicating a resource or local device type, and a part <CALC TYPE> indicating a method of statistically processing information in the center device SV. By applying the character string information of the URL of the local Web content that simultaneously displays the character string of <CALC TYPE> as described above and the character string information in the local Web content extracted based on the operation information described above, The URL of the center-side Web content corresponding to the statistical processing information obtained by processing the dwelling unit information collected by the center device SV by a predetermined statistical processing method, the character string information of the local-side Web content data, and the screen It is generated based on the operation input information from above, and the predetermined center-side Web content is acquired by the URL. A screen presentation that allows the user to compare at a glance information on the dwelling unit displayed on the local web content with statistical processing information on other dwelling units displayed on the center side web content acquired in association with the information. It becomes possible.

  The character string information described in <CALC TYPE> is extracted from the data of the local Web content based on the operation of the operation button on the screen of the local Web content as the operation input information. The operation buttons 53a, 53b, 53c, and 53d provided in the above may be used as information input means for generating a URL. In this case, the URL generation associated with the operation buttons 53a, 53b, 53c, and 53d is generated. Character string information is registered in advance in the storage unit 54, character string information corresponding to the operated operation button is read from the storage unit 54, and applied to a predetermined variable part of the template to generate a URL.
