(Embodiment 1)
Hereinafter, a control system 10 according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described.

(Constitution)
FIG. 1 is a schematic configuration diagram illustrating a control system 10 according to the first embodiment.

  The control system 10 is a system for controlling the devices A to D as an example of the devices in the house 11, and as shown in the figure, includes the control device 100, the transmission devices 20a and 20b, and the mobile devices 30a to 30c. Consists of including. In the control system 10, the control device 100 is configured to be able to communicate with the server 40 outside the house via the network 41. The network 41 includes a wide area network such as the Internet. In the control system 10, the number of transmission devices and mobile devices is arbitrary, but FIG. 1 shows an example in which two transmission devices and three mobile devices are provided for convenience.

  The transmission devices 20a and 20b are installed in different places (for example, different rooms) in the house 11, and repeat beacons with different beacon IDs (identification) in order to identify the transmission devices in accordance with BLE. It is a beacon transmitter to transmit. Here, for the sake of convenience, it is assumed that the beacon ID transmitted by the transmission device 20a is “01” and the beacon ID transmitted by the transmission device 20b is “02”. The transmission devices 20a and 20b transmit beacons in accordance with BLE.

  The mobile devices 30a to 30c are terminal devices such as smartphones and tablets, that is, computers including a memory, a CPU (Central Processing Unit), an input device, a display device, a communication circuit, and the like. The display device is a display such as an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), and the input device is an operation unit such as a button or a touch panel integrated with the display. The memory is a ROM (Read Only Memory) that holds a program and data in advance, a RAM (Random Access Memory) that is used to store data when the program is executed, and includes, for example, a nonvolatile memory. Also good. The CPU performs processing for controlling the communication circuit and the like by executing a control program stored in the memory. The mobile devices 30a to 30c can receive a BLE-compliant beacon and can communicate with the control device 100 via a wireless LAN (Local Area Network) or the like. The mobile devices 30a to 30c have a function (beacon ID transfer function) that receives a beacon ID, attaches a control ID (such as user identification information) under a certain condition, and transfers the beacon ID to the control device 100. . This beacon ID transfer function is realized by the CPU executing a control program stored in the memory. The control program may be, for example, an OS (Operating System) and an application program. The mobile devices 30 a to 30 c can be carried by each resident (user) of the house 11, and are here carried along with the movement of each resident (for example, movement between rooms in the house 11). Description will be made on the assumption that the mobile devices 30a to 30c move.

  The control device 100 is a computer as a device that controls each device (for example, a HEMS controller in a HEMS (Home Energy Management System)) in a home system including various devices such as the devices A to D in the house 11. The control device 100 includes a storage medium such as a memory, a CPU, an input device, a display device, a communication circuit, and the like. Note that a mobile device 30a such as a smartphone or a tablet that can communicate with the control device 100 may function as an input device and a display device of the control device 100. The CPU performs processing for controlling the communication circuit and the like by executing a control program stored in the memory. By executing a control program by the CPU, the control device 100 transmits a control signal according to a predetermined protocol via a HAN (Home Area Network) based on communication with the mobile devices 30a to 30c, thereby causing the devices A to D. The function which controls etc. is demonstrated. The HAN may be a wired network or may include a wireless network such as a wireless LAN. The control apparatus 100 can communicate with the server 40 outside the house 11 as necessary to exchange information (for example, download of an update program such as firmware of each device). This server 40 is represented as an example of a device outside the house that can communicate with the control device 100.

  The devices A to D constitute a home system in the house 11 and represent electric devices that can communicate with the control device 100. For example, lighting devices, air conditioning devices, heating devices, television receivers, recording / playback Devices, audio equipment and the like. The devices A to D have a function of communicating with the control device 100 via a HAN according to a predetermined protocol and operating according to the control signal when receiving a control signal from the control device 100. The predetermined protocol may be any protocol as long as it is for communication between the control device 100 and each of the devices A to D. The predetermined protocol is, for example, IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) for the network layer, UDP (User Datagram Protocol) for the transport layer, and ECHONET Lite (registered trademark) for the application layer.

  Basically, the control system 10 carries the mobile device when the user moves to a predetermined location in the house 11 (that is, the area where the transmission device is installed and the beacon ID repeatedly transmitted by the transmission device can be received). Has a function of controlling the device with control contents registered in advance. And in the case where there are a plurality of users, a method of giving the authority to preferentially control the device to the user who arrives at a predetermined place in the house 11 is adopted. That is, the control system 10 controls the device according to the control content registered in advance by the first-arriving user, and the device is in a desired state of the first-arriving user. Since the control system 10 gives priority to the first-arriving user, the control system 10 does not control the device with the registered control contents for the user who arrives at a predetermined place (the first-arriving user). However, if the control system 10 detects that the first-arrived user has moved away from the vicinity of the predetermined location and moved to another location, the control system 10 has already registered the next-arrived user as a trigger. Control devices with control content.

  Hereinafter, a device control function in the control device 100 will be described.

  FIG. 2 is a functional block diagram of the control device 100.

  The control device 100 includes a storage unit 110 and a control unit 120 as shown in FIG.

  The storage unit 110 includes a storage area of a storage medium such as a memory, and has a function of storing the device control information 50 and the control authority management information 60.

  FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating a configuration and example contents of the device control information 50. As shown in the figure, the device control information 50 includes beacon ID 51, control ID 52, and device control content 53, and is information in which device control content 53 is associated with each set of beacon ID 51 and control ID 52. The beacon ID 51 is information for specifying a beacon ID transmitted by the transmission device 20a or the like. The control ID 52 is information for specifying a control ID (user identification information or identification information of the mobile device) transmitted by the mobile device 30a or the like. The device control content 53 is information indicating the control content for each of the devices A to D. As an example of the device control content 53, in FIG. 3, when the device A is a luminaire, control to turn on (ON) or turn off (OFF), and when the device B is an air conditioner, cooling, heating, and the like are distinguished. The control of the operation mode, the set temperature and the air volume is mentioned. In the example of FIG. 3, the beacon ID “01”, the control ID “X”, the device A (lighting fixture) is turned on (ON), and the device B (air conditioning device) is set to the cooling mode, 28 ° C., and the light wind. The contents of control for setting and not specially setting the device C are associated with each other. This is an example of contents registered (that is, input) by the user X via the input device of the control device 100 or the mobile device 30a communicating with the control device 100. In the example of FIG. 3, the beacon ID “01”, the control ID “Y”, the device A (lighting device) is turned on (ON), the device B (air conditioning device) is in the cooling mode, 26 ° C., and strong wind. Is associated with the control content that the device C is not set specially. This is an example of content registered by a resident (user Y) different from the user X via the input device of the control device 100 or the like. For convenience, the device control content 53 is represented by a character string in FIG. 3, but information for specifying a control signal to be transmitted to the device and a program module for transmitting a control signal for controlling the device The information etc. which identify etc. may be sufficient. For this reason, the device control information 50 is obtained by associating the control ID with the beacon ID, and the control ID can be said to be information for identifying a plurality of control contents for the device associated with the beacon ID. Note that each of the devices A to D has a function of operating according to the control content when a predetermined control signal corresponding to the control content indicated by the device control content 53 is received.

  4A and 4B are diagrams showing a configuration and example contents of the control authority management information 60. FIG. The control authority management information 60 is information including a control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID 61 for each beacon ID 61 as shown in FIGS. 4A and 4B. The beacon ID 61 is information for specifying a beacon ID transmitted by the transmission device 20a or the like. The control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID 61 includes information (control ID of the control ID) in which each control ID for identifying one or more users that have arrived in the receivable area of the beacon ID transmitted by the transmitting device is arranged with an arrival order. Column). In the initial state, the control ID column 62 corresponding to each beacon ID does not include any control ID. The control ID column 62 adds the received control ID by the control unit 120 of the control device 100 when the control device 100 receives the beacon ID transferred with the control ID from the mobile devices 30a to 30c. The information is updated as follows. In addition, the control ID is deleted from the control ID column 62 by the control unit 120 at any time under a certain condition. In FIG. 4A, the control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “01” includes the control ID “X” that is the identification information of the user X, the control ID “Y” that is the identification information of the user Y, and the identification information of the user Z. A certain control ID “Z” is arranged in this order. This corresponds to a state in which the user X, the user Y, and the user Z arrive in this order in the receivable area of the beacon ID “01”. In FIG. 4B, as the control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “01”, the control ID “Y” that is the identification information of the user Y and the control ID “Z” that is the identification information of the user Z are arranged in this order. ing. In FIG. 4B, only the control ID “X” that is the identification information of the user X is included as the control ID string 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “02”.

  The control unit 120 is realized by a CPU that executes a control program, an input device, a communication circuit, and the like. The control unit 120 communicates with the mobile device communication unit 121 for communicating with the mobile device 30a to 30c by the communication circuit for wireless LAN and the device communication for communicating with the device A to D via the communication circuit corresponding to the HAN. Part 122. The control unit 120 receives the registration information input by the user and updates the device control information 50, and manages the user's authority related to device control for each beacon reception area to control the device. Control function. The control function includes a function for updating the control authority management information 60 when the mobile device communication unit 121 receives a beacon ID and a control ID, and a control registered in the device control information 50 based on the control authority management information 60. The content includes a function of controlling the device by the device communication unit 122.

(Operation)
Hereinafter, operation | movement of each apparatus of the control system 10 provided with the above-mentioned structure is demonstrated.

  The transmission devices 20a and 20b repeatedly transmit the beacon ID at a predetermined cycle such as several tens to several hundred milliseconds.

  Each of the mobile devices 30a to 30c registers (inputs) a beacon ID and a control ID to be transferred by the owner user, and stores the registered information in a storage medium such as a memory. And In addition, when each user of the mobile devices 30a to 30c wants to control a device when he / she approaches a certain location, the mobile device he / she carries the beacon ID transmitted by the transmitting device installed at that location Register with the device. The beacon ID transmitted by the transmission devices 20a and 20b in the house 11 is described in, for example, the casing of the transmission device, a manual, or the like, or is set by each user as the transmission device. ID can be recognized and registered. The control ID that each user registers in the mobile device owned by the user may be any value as long as it does not overlap among residents (between users) in the house 11. The mobile devices 30a to 30c may use the mobile device identification information (device-specific information) stored in the device in advance as the control ID. In this case, the input of the control ID by the user is It is unnecessary. The user may register a plurality of beacon IDs in the mobile device.

  The mobile devices 30a to 30c having a beacon ID transfer function perform the operation shown in FIG. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the operation of beacon transfer in the mobile devices 30a to 30c. Hereinafter, the operation of the mobile device 30a will be described with reference to FIG.

  The mobile device 30a is carried by the user X, moves with the movement of the user X, and receives the beacon ID when the beacon ID of the transmission device 20a enters a receivable range (step S11). In addition, although the mobile body device 30a may distinguish whether to process according to the intensity | strength (namely, received electric field strength) of the radio wave of a beacon, it demonstrates by the example which does not distinguish in particular here.

  When receiving the beacon ID, the mobile device 30a determines whether or not the received beacon ID is the same as the beacon ID already registered in the own device (step S12).

  If the received beacon ID is the same as the beacon ID already registered in the own device, the mobile device 30a uses the received beacon ID and the control ID already registered in the own device as the control device. It transmits to 100 (step S13). In addition, the mobile device 30a does not transfer the beacon ID to the control device 100 when the received beacon ID does not match any of the beacon IDs already registered in the own device.

  In addition, after transmitting beacon ID etc. to the control apparatus 100 by step S13, even if the mobile body apparatus 30a receives repeatedly the beacon ID of the same value currently transmitted by the predetermined period, control is performed. No transfer to the device 100 is performed. However, when reception of the same value of the beacon ID is interrupted for a predetermined time (for example, several seconds to several hundred seconds), when the same value of the beacon ID is received again, the operation shown in FIG. A beacon ID or the like is transmitted to the control device 100.

  Next, the operation of the control device 100 that receives the beacon ID and the like transmitted from the mobile devices 30a to 30c, updates the control authority management information 60, and controls the devices A to D will be described with reference to FIG.

  FIG. 6 is a flowchart showing the operation of the control device 100.

  The control unit 120 of the control device 100 receives the beacon ID and control ID transmitted from any of the mobile devices 30a to 30c by the mobile device communication unit 121 (step S21). The operation shown in FIG. 6 is performed every time the control device 100 receives the beacon ID and the control ID.

  Subsequently, the control unit 120 determines whether or not the received beacon ID and control ID match any one of the set of beacon ID 51 and control ID 52 in the device control information 50 stored in the storage unit 110 (step S22). ). If they do not match, the control unit 120 ends the processing without doing anything. If they match, the process proceeds to step S23. If they match, the control unit 120 finally includes the received beacon ID and control ID in the control authority management information 60 in step S28. Therefore, the control authority management information 60 includes the control IDs received in order of reception in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the received beacon ID (see FIG. 4A).

  In step S <b> 23, the control unit 120 determines whether or not the control authority management information 60 indicates the same control ID as the received control ID in the control ID column 62 associated with the beacon ID 61 other than the received beacon ID. Is determined. If the control ID string 62 associated with the beacon ID 61 other than the received beacon ID includes the same control ID as the received control ID, the control unit 120 deletes the control ID from the control ID string 62. Thus, the control authority management information 60 is updated (step S24). The deletion of the control ID from the control ID column 62 in step S24 occurs when the mobile device leaves the area where a beacon ID can be received and enters a area where another beacon ID can be received. . That is, the determination in step S23 is performed to detect the movement of the user (that is, that the mobile device attached to the user has left the vicinity of the area where the original beacon ID can be received). When a control ID is deleted from the control ID column 62, the order of the control IDs after the deleted control ID is incremented by one.

  The control unit 120 refers to the device control information 50, and the device control content 53 corresponding to the set of the control ID that has become the head rank of the control ID column 62 by deleting the control ID in step S24 and the corresponding beacon ID 61. Then, the device is controlled by the device communication unit 122 (step S25). However, in step S25, the control unit 120 has already executed control of the corresponding device with respect to the control ID that was at the top of the control ID column 62 before the deletion of the control ID in step S24. Do not control. After a plurality of users sequentially enter a receivable area of a certain beacon ID, the device corresponding to the next user is controlled when the first user moves to another area. .

  After step S25 or in step S23, the control ID column 62 associated with the beacon ID 61 other than the beacon ID received in the control authority management information 60 does not indicate the same control ID as the received control ID. If determined, the process proceeds to step S26.

  In step S <b> 26, the control unit 120 determines whether or not the control ID string 62 already includes the control ID that has been received earlier, in the control authority management information 60, corresponding to the received beacon ID. If not included, the control unit 120 refers to the device control information 50 and uses the device communication content 122 registered in correspondence with the received beacon ID and control ID to cause the device communication unit 122 to execute the device control. Is controlled (step S27). Also, in the control authority management information 60, if the control ID already received in advance is included in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the received beacon ID, the control unit 120 skips the process of step S27. To do. That is, the control unit 120 executes control of devices corresponding only to the control ID that is the first order in the control ID string 62 corresponding to the beacon ID 61, and suppresses control of the devices corresponding to the control IDs subsequent to the order. . In addition, this control is canceled for the control ID that has been advanced to the top by deleting the control ID of the previous rank in the control ID column 62, and the control of the corresponding device is executed in step S25 described above. Will be.

  After step S27, or when it is determined in step S26 that the control ID column 62 already contains the control ID that has already been received in response to the beacon ID received in the control authority management information 60. The control unit 120 performs the process of step S28 described above. That is, the control unit 120 includes the beacon ID and the control ID received from the mobile device in step S21 in the control authority management information 60. More specifically, the control unit 120 adds the received control ID as the last rank of the control ID column 62 corresponding to the same beacon ID 61 as the received beacon ID, thereby obtaining the control authority management information 60. Update.

  As described above, when the control unit 120 sequentially receives a plurality of beacon IDs with different control IDs that are the same as one beacon ID stored in the storage unit 110 from the mobile device, The device is controlled with the control content corresponding to the control ID of the earliest received order. After that, when a predetermined condition for the earliest control ID (the condition that becomes yes in step S23) is satisfied, the control unit 120 uses the control content corresponding to the next control ID in the earliest order. The device is controlled (step S24). Thereby, the device corresponding to the user of the next arrival to a certain area is controlled.

(Specific operation example)
Hereinafter, the operation of the control system 10 described above will be described with a specific example.

  As a premise of the description, the transmitting device 20a is installed in the room A of the house 11 or in the vicinity of the entrance thereof, and the beacon (beacon ID = transmitted) transmitted by the transmitting device 20a in the room A or at the entrance of the room A. It is assumed that the radio wave “01”) can be received at a certain intensity or higher. When the user X wants to change the device A and the device B installed in the room A to a desired state when entering the room A, the beacon ID “01”, the control ID (user identification information, etc.), and the device once in advance. Register the control contents such as A (contents indicating the desired state of the user X) in association with each other. Each of the user Y and the user Z is registered in the same manner. That is, when the user Y or the like wants to bring the devices A and B installed in the room A into a desired state when entering the room A, the beacon ID “01”, the control ID of each user, and the device A And the like (registered contents indicating the desired state of each user) are registered in advance.

  For example, it is assumed that the device control information 50 stored in the storage unit 110 has the content illustrated in FIG. Further, it is assumed that the control authority management information 60 is in a state where no control ID is included in the control ID column 62 for any beacon ID.

  (1) First, the user X moves to enter the room A.

  In this case, the mobile device 30a in which the beacon IDs “01” and “02” carried by the user X and the control ID “X” are registered can receive the beacon ID “01” transmitted by the transmission device 20a. When entering room A:

  The mobile device 30a receives the beacon ID “01” (step S11), and transmits the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “X” to the control device 100 (step S13). Then, the control device 100 receives the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “X” (step S21).

  And the control apparatus 100 transmits the control signal for making it a lighting (ON) state to the apparatus A which is a lighting fixture according to the apparatus control information 50 (FIG. 3), and sets it to air_conditioning | cooling mode, 28 degreeC, and a light wind. A control signal for transmitting is transmitted to the device B, which is an air conditioner (step S27). Subsequently, the control device 100 includes the control ID “X” as the head order in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “01” in the control authority management information 60 (step S28).

  At this time, the user X is located in the room A, and the state of the device desired by the user X (a state according to the control contents registered in advance by the user X) is realized.

  (2) Next, the user Y tries to enter the room A.

  In this case, the mobile device 30b in which the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “Y” carried by the user Y are registered enters the room A where the beacon ID “01” transmitted by the transmitting device 20a can be received. And the following.

  The mobile device 30b receives the beacon ID “01” (step S11), and transmits the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “Y” to the control device 100 (step S13). Then, the control device 100 performs the operation shown in FIG. 6 and receives the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “Y” (step S21).

  Then, in the control authority management information 60, the control device 100 includes the control ID “X” received earlier in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the received beacon ID “01” (step S26). ), Control of the device corresponding to the control ID “Y” (user Y) is not executed.

  Subsequently, the control device 100 includes the control ID “Y” in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “01” in the control authority management information 60 as the next order in the head (step S28).

  At this point, the user X and the user Y are located in the room A, and the state of the equipment desired by the user X who arrives first in the room A is realized, but the state of the equipment desired by the next user Y is realized. Not.

  (3) Next, the user Z tries to enter the room A.

  In this case, the mobile device 30c in which the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “Z” carried by the user Z are registered enters the room A where the beacon ID “01” transmitted by the transmission device 20a can be received. And the following.

  The mobile device 30c receives the beacon ID “01” (step S11), and transmits the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “Z” to the control device 100 (step S13). Then, the control device 100 performs the operation shown in FIG. 6 and receives the beacon ID “01” and the control ID “Z” (step S21).

  Then, in the control authority management information 60, the control device 100 includes the control ID “X” received earlier in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the received beacon ID “01” (step S26). ), Control of the device corresponding to the control ID “Z” (user Z) is not executed.

  Subsequently, the control device 100 includes the control ID “Z” in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “01” in the control authority management information 60 as the next next rank (last rank) (first rank) ( Step S28).

  At this time, the user X, the user Y, and the user Z are located in the room A, and the state of the equipment desired by the user X who arrives first in the room A is realized. The status of the device to be implemented has not been realized. The control authority management information 60 at this time has the contents illustrated in FIG. 4A.

  (4) Next, the user X leaves the room A and moves to enter the room B.

  In this case, when the mobile device 30a carried by the user X enters the room B where the beacon ID “02” transmitted by the transmission device 20b can be received, the following occurs.

  The mobile device 30a receives the beacon ID “02” (step S11), and transmits the beacon ID “02” and the control ID “X” to the control device 100 (step S13). Then, the control device 100 receives the beacon ID “02” and the control ID “X” (step S21).

  Then, the control device 100 controls the same control as the received control ID “X” from the control ID string 62 associated with the beacon ID “01” other than the received beacon ID “02” in the control authority management information 60. The ID “X” is deleted (steps S23 and S24).

  Subsequently, since the control ID “X” is deleted in the control ID column 62 associated with the beacon ID “01”, the control device 100 corresponds to the control ID “Y” (user Y) that has been advanced to the top rank. The device to be controlled is controlled (step S25). That is, the control device 100 transmits a control signal for turning on (ON) according to the device control information 50 to the device A, and transmits a control signal for setting the cooling mode, 26 ° C., and strong wind to the device B. .

  Further, in the control authority management information 60, the control ID column 62 associated with the received beacon ID “02” does not yet include a control ID (see step S26). Therefore, the control apparatus 100 transmits the control signal for making it a lighting (ON) state to the apparatus C which is a lighting fixture based on the apparatus control information 50 (FIG. 3) (step S27). Subsequently, the control device 100 includes the control ID “X” as the head order in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the beacon ID “02” in the control authority management information 60 (step S28).

  At this point, the user Y and the user Z are located in the room A, and the state of the equipment desired by the user Y who arrives first in the room A is realized, but the state of the equipment desired by the user Z is realized. It has not been. Moreover, the state of the desired apparatus which the user X located in the room B and the user X who arrived first in the room B registered in association with the beacon ID “02” is realized. The control authority management information 60 at this time has the contents illustrated in FIG. 4B.

  Thus, in the control system 10, when the user X leaves the room A, the user X's authority to control the equipment in the room A is lost, and the first user Y who has left the room A controls the equipment. Authority is granted.

  Thereby, the operation burden of each user for making the apparatus in a house into a desired state is reduced.

(Modification 1)
Hereinafter, a modified example (modified example 1) of the control system 10 will be described.

  In the control system 10 according to the first modification, a deletion request reception handling process for detecting that a user who has entered an area where a beacon ID can be received has left the vicinity of the area is added to the control device 100. . In the control device 100 according to the first modification, the control ID is deleted from the control ID column 62 by the deletion request reception handling process in addition to the above-described step S24.

  Further, in the control system 10 according to the first modification, when the beacon ID cannot be repeatedly received after the transfer of the beacon ID from the transmission device 20a or the like to the mobile devices 30a to 30c, the control ID is given to the control device 100. Add a function to send a delete request including. In the area where the beacon ID can be received, the mobile devices 30a to 30c may receive the beacon ID continuously (that is, repeatedly), although there is a possibility that there is some space. Then, the mobile devices 30a to 30c determine that the beacon ID cannot be repeatedly received because the beacon ID cannot be received even after waiting for a certain time (for example, several seconds), for example. The mobile devices 30a to 30c send a deletion request including the control ID to the control device 100 when a predetermined operation is received from the user instead of the function of transmitting the deletion request when the beacon ID cannot be repeatedly received. You may have the function to transmit. In this case, when the user goes out of an area (for example, a certain room) where the beacon ID can be received, in order to indicate to the control system 10 that the authority to control the device in that area is unnecessary. A predetermined operation can be performed.

  FIG. 7 is a flowchart showing the deletion request reception handling process by the control device 100 according to the first modification.

  As shown in the figure, when the control device 100 receives a deletion request including a control ID from any of the mobile devices 30a to 30c, the control device 100 obtains the control ID related to the deletion request from the control ID column 62 of the control authority management information 60. Delete (step S31).

  Subsequently, the control device 100 refers to the device control information 50, specifies the control content corresponding to the control ID that has become the head order of the control ID column 62 by deletion, and controls the device with the control content (step). S32). Thus, the deletion request reception handling process ends.

  For example, a user X (control ID “X”) and a user Y (control ID “Y”) enter the area (room A) so that a certain beacon ID can be received in order, and the control unit 120 of the control device 100 controls the user X. Assume that the device is controlled with the control content corresponding to. Thereafter, when a predetermined condition is satisfied for the user X (when a deletion request is received), the control unit 120 increments the next control ID “Y” with the first rank in the control ID column 62 by one. Then, the device is controlled with the control content corresponding to this (step S32). As a result, the device corresponding to the user Y who arrives in the room A is controlled.

(Modification 2)
Hereinafter, a modified example (modified example 2) of the control system 10 will be described. In the second modification, device control that does not conflict with device control performed in response to a user who has first arrived in an area where the beacon ID can be received is performed in response to a user who has arrived later in the area. This is an example. In the control system 10 according to the second modification, the control device 100 performs the operation shown in FIG. 8 instead of the operation shown in FIG.

  FIG. 8 is a flowchart showing the operation of the control device according to the second modification of the first embodiment. In this figure, the same steps as those shown in FIG. 6 are denoted by the same reference numerals, and description thereof will be omitted as appropriate.

  The control unit 120 of the control device 100 receives the beacon ID and control ID transmitted from any of the mobile devices 30a to 30c (step S21). Subsequently, the control unit 120 determines whether or not the received beacon ID and control ID match any one of the set of the beacon ID 51 and the control ID 52 of the device control information 50 (step S22). When they match, the control unit 120 determines whether or not the control ID string 62 associated with the beacon ID 61 other than the received beacon ID indicates the same control ID as the received control ID (step). S23). If the control ID string 62 associated with the beacon ID 61 other than the received beacon ID includes the same control ID as the received control ID, the control unit 120 deletes the control ID from the control ID string 62. Thus, the control authority management information 60 is updated (step S24). The control unit 120 controls the device with the device control content 53 corresponding to the set of the control ID that has become the head rank of the control ID column 62 by the deletion of the control ID in step S24 and the corresponding beacon ID 61 (step S25). .

  After step S25, or when a negative determination is made in step S23, the control unit 120 includes the control ID already received earlier in the control ID column 62 corresponding to the received beacon ID. It is discriminate | determined whether it is (step S26). If it is determined that it is not included, the control unit 120 controls the device with the device control content 53 corresponding to the received beacon ID and control ID (step S27).

  When the control unit 120 determines in step S26 that the control ID string 62 includes the control ID of the previous rank, the process proceeds to step S26a. Therefore, the control unit 120 determines whether or not the device control content 53 corresponding to the received control ID or the like conflicts with the device control content 53 corresponding to the control ID of the previous order in the control ID column 62 ( Step S26a). That is, in the device control information 50, the control unit 120 indicates that the device control content 53 corresponding to the received beacon ID and control ID is the device control corresponding to the control ID of the previous order in the control ID column 62 for the beacon ID. It is determined whether or not the content 53 conflicts. For example, the control content “set the set temperature of the air conditioner to 26 ° C.” corresponding to the received beacon ID and control ID is the control content “set the set temperature to 28 ° C.” corresponding to the control ID of the previous order. Conflict with. Also, for example, the control content “turn on device A” corresponding to the received beacon ID and control ID is “may turn device A on or off” corresponding to the control ID of the previous order. It does not conflict with the control contents that are not specially set. When the control ID column 62 includes a plurality of control IDs of the previous rank, it is determined that there is no conflict in step S26a when there is no conflict with the control contents corresponding to all the control IDs of the previous rank. In other cases, it is determined that there is a conflict. The control unit 120 controls the device with respect to the control content determined not to compete in step S26a (step S27). In the case where the control content is a plurality of devices or a plurality of function items, if only a part of the control content does not compete, the control unit 120 executes control of the device with the part of the control content that does not conflict. Is done. In addition, control is not executed for the control content determined to compete in step S26a.

  After step S27 or after determining that there is a conflict in step S26a, the control unit 120 includes the beacon ID and control ID received from the mobile device in step S21 in the control authority management information 60 (step S28). That is, the control unit 120 updates the control authority management information 60 by adding the received control ID as the last rank of the control ID string 62 corresponding to the same beacon ID 61 as the received beacon ID.

  As described above, for example, the control unit 120 according to the modification 2 has the control content corresponding to the control ID “Z” attached to the received beacon ID, and the rank in the control ID column 62 is the control ID “Z”. When there is no conflict with the control contents of all preceding control IDs “X” and “Y”, before the predetermined condition is satisfied for each of all control IDs “X” and “Y” preceding the control ID “Z” Even so, the device is controlled with the control content corresponding to the control ID “Z”. This predetermined condition is a condition that becomes yes in step S23 of FIG.

(Other embodiments, etc.)
As mentioned above, although the control system was demonstrated by Embodiment 1, the modification 1, and the modification 2, it is needless to say that embodiment mentioned above is only an example and various changes, addition, omission, etc. are possible.

  In the first embodiment described above, an example in which the device A and the device B (see FIG. 3) that are controlled when the user X enters the room A (corresponding to the beacon ID “01”) is installed in the room A. Indicated. However, a device controlled by the registered control content when a user enters a receivable area of a certain beacon ID does not necessarily have to be installed in the vicinity of the area. For example, as long as it is a device (home system device that can communicate with the control device 100) that the user X wants to enter in the desired state when entering the room A, the device installed at any location in the house 11 The user X can register the control contents of the device.

  The control unit 120 described above controls the device with the control content (device control content 53 in FIG. 3) corresponding to the control ID that has been moved up to the top rank of the control ID string 62 in step S25. Prior to the control of the device corresponding to the control ID that has been advanced to the top rank, the control unit 120 requests the mobile device that is the transmission source of the beacon ID with the control ID to transfer a receivable beacon ID. The device may be controlled only when the same beacon ID is received again. In this case, the mobile device may have a function of transferring the beacon ID that can be received in accordance with the request for transferring the beacon ID.

  The control unit 120 described above includes each control ID received from each mobile device in order in the control ID column 62, and controls the device with the control content corresponding to the control ID other than the head order from the control ID. This is performed when all of the predetermined conditions are satisfied for all the control IDs in the priority order. Examples of the predetermined condition include a condition that is “yes” in step S23 in FIG. 6 and a condition that a deletion request is received. In addition, the control unit 120 requests that the beacon ID transmission source mobile device to which each control ID is assigned at regular time intervals be transmitted to the beacon ID that can be received and the same beacon ID is not returned. It may be treated as established. This predetermined condition is, so to speak, a condition for revoking the device control authority. When the predetermined condition for the control ID is satisfied, the user corresponding to the control ID loses the authority for device control.

  Further, the control system 10 may not include the server 40. Note that the server 40 may replace some or all of the functions of the control device 100. For example, the server 40 can communicate with the mobile device and the devices A to D. Then, according to the beacon ID transferred with the control ID from the mobile device, the server 40 manages the authority related to the user's device control for each beacon ID (the queue using the control authority management information 60 or the like). Management), and the device may be controlled by the registered control content.

  In addition, although the transmission devices 20a and 20b transmit beacons in conformity with BLE, a short-range communication technology (communication method) other than BLE may be used. Further, the communication method between the mobile device and the control device is not limited to a specific method. That is, if the mobile device receives the beacon ID issued by the transmitting device and is a beacon ID registered in the own device, the mobile device can transmit the received beacon ID and control ID to the control device. Any communication method may be used.

  The control system 10 may be configured by the control device 100 and the transmission devices 20a and 20b. The communication between the control system (control device and transmission device) and the mobile device enables the control system to exhibit a device control function.

  The control device 100 may be used by being connected to, for example, a broadband router having a wireless LAN function. In this case, the control device 100 may communicate with the network 41 outside the house 11 via the broadband router, and may communicate with the mobile devices 30a to 30c by the wireless LAN function of the broadband router. .

  In addition, when the mobile device 30a or the like receives a beacon ID from the transmission device 20a or the like, the beacon radio wave strength (reception electric field strength) is set in advance in, for example, three levels of strong, medium, and weak. The beacon ID may be transferred only in the case of strength (for example, strong and medium). By setting the predetermined strength, a range in which a beacon can be transferred (a size of a transferable area that is almost in the vicinity of the transmission device) can be limited.

  In addition, although the mobile devices 30a to 30c do not repeatedly transmit (transfer) the same beacon ID, the mobile devices 30a to 30c may perform repeated transmission. In this case, when the same beacon ID and the same control ID are repeatedly received within a certain time (for example, several tens of seconds, several hundreds of seconds, etc.), the control device 100 does not handle the beacon IDs received after the second time. It can be (ignored).

  In addition, the execution order of the processing procedures (the procedures shown in FIGS. 6 to 8 and the like) in the control device 100 described above is not necessarily limited to the order as described above, and does not depart from the gist of the invention. The order of execution can be changed or a part of it can be omitted. Further, all or part of the processing procedure (the procedure shown in FIGS. 6 to 8, etc.) may be realized by hardware or may be realized by using software. The processing by software is realized by a CPU included in the control device 100 (computer) executing a control program stored in a memory. Further, the program may be recorded on a recording medium and distributed or distributed. For example, by installing the distributed control program in a computer and causing the CPU to execute it, it is possible to cause the computer to perform all or part of the processing procedures shown in FIGS.

  In addition, embodiments realized by arbitrarily combining the constituent elements and functions described in the above-described embodiments are also included in the scope of the present invention.

  Note that various general or specific aspects of the present invention include one or a plurality of combinations of an apparatus, a system, a method, an integrated circuit, a computer program, a computer-readable recording medium, and the like.

  Hereinafter, the configuration, modification, effects, and the like of the control system according to one embodiment of the present invention will be described.

  (1) A control system according to an aspect of the present invention corresponds to a mobile device 30a or the like having a function of receiving a beacon ID and transferring the beacon ID with a different control ID for each mobile device. The control system 10 for controlling the device A and the like includes one or more transmission devices 20a that wirelessly transmit different beacon IDs for each transmission device, and the control device 100. Corresponding to each of the above beacon IDs, the storage unit 110 stores each control ID to be associated with each of a plurality of control contents corresponding to the beacon ID, the mobile device 30a, etc., and is stored in the storage unit 110. When a plurality of beacon IDs assigned with different control IDs that are the same as one beacon ID are sequentially received, the received order is the device with the control content corresponding to the earliest control ID. And a control unit 120 that controls the device with the control content corresponding to the next control ID of the earliest order when the predetermined condition for the earliest control ID is satisfied after the control. System. The predetermined condition is satisfied when, for example, it is detected that a mobile device that has entered an area where a certain beacon ID can be received has left the vicinity of the area (FIG. 6, step S23, FIG. 7, etc.). In addition, the value of beacon ID which a certain transmission apparatus (beacon transmitter) transmits differs from the value of beacon ID which another transmission apparatus (beacon transmitter) transmits.

  Thereby, the operation burden of each resident (each user) for making the apparatus in a house into a desired state is reduced. As for the authority of device control between users, the authority of the user who arrives first in the beacon ID reception area is given priority. And, for example, if a predetermined condition is satisfied because the mobile device held by the first user has left the vicinity of the area, the user's authority to control the device is lost, and the movement that has arrived next in the area Device control authority is given to the user holding the body device.

  (2) For example, when the control system 10 further receives a beacon ID and the received beacon ID matches the beacon ID already held in the own device, the control system 10 adds a control ID to the beacon ID. In addition, a beacon ID transfer function unit (transfer unit) in one or more mobile devices 30a or the like that transmit to the control device 100 may be provided.

  Thereby, for example, it is possible to suppress an increase in useless communication in the control system due to a beacon ID that is not registered in the mobile device (that is, unnecessary for the user).

  (3) For example, when the control unit 120 receives a beacon ID, which is different from the beacon ID, attached with the same control ID as the control ID attached to the received beacon ID, from the mobile device 30b or the like, It may be handled that a predetermined condition for the control ID is satisfied.

  Thus, for example, when a user who arrives first in the beacon ID receivable area (room A) leaves the vicinity of the room A and enters another beacon ID receivable area (room B), it remains in the room A. The state of the device desired by another user is realized.

  (4) For example, when the control unit 120 receives a deletion request indicating the same control ID as the control ID attached to the received beacon ID from the mobile device 30a or the like, a predetermined condition for the control ID It is good to treat that is satisfied. Note that the mobile device 30a and the like can transmit a deletion request when it is detected that the beacon ID cannot be continuously received for a predetermined time or longer, or when the user performs a predetermined operation.

  Thus, for example, when a user who arrives first in the beacon ID receivable area (room A) leaves the vicinity of the room A and the mobile device held by the user cannot receive the beacon ID, it remains in the room A. The state of the device desired by another user is realized.

  (5) For example, the control unit 120 satisfies all the predetermined conditions for all the preceding control IDs in the control IDs other than the first order in the control ID column 62 attached to the received beacon ID. In such a case, the device A or the like may be controlled with the control content corresponding to the control ID other than the first control ID.

  Thereby, for example, if all the mobile devices that arrive first in the mobile device 30c out of the vicinity of the room A among the multiple mobile devices 30a to 30c that have entered the beacon ID receivable area (room A), The state of the device desired by the user of the body device 30c can be realized.

  (6) For example, the control unit 120 adds all the control contents corresponding to the control IDs other than the earliest order in the control ID column 62 attached to the received beacon ID, the order preceding the control ID. If there is no conflict with the control content of the control ID, the device A has the control content corresponding to the control ID regardless of whether or not all the predetermined conditions for all the control IDs preceding the control ID are satisfied. Etc. may be controlled.

  Thereby, for example, only when the state of the device desired by the first user Y to the area where the beacon ID can be received does not conflict with the state of the device desired by the first user X, the device desired by the user Y The state comes to be realized.
