Home Automation with Linear Actuators

Linear actuators are used in a variety of commercial, personal, and industrial applications. In a home, several appliances, furniture, and other functional and aesthetic features depend on linear actuators. Linear actuators used in homes provide convenience. They help reduce effort and increase productivity. Many appliances can be programmed to utilize the functioning of linear actuators to produce automated responses that enhance living conditions of a homeowner.

Linear Actuators in Action

Linear actuators in homes provide immense amount of convenience and reduction of effort. Here are some live examples of such movements:

    • Windows that feature shutters or blinds can be automated to change according to the sunlight. This is possible by fitting the shutters or blinds with actuators. They can be programmed in conjunction with other components and machines to factor in the intensity of the light. Accordingly, the actuator will adjust the blinds and shutters depending on the sunlight. This will automatically shield you and the inner space of your home or office from direct sunlight. At the same time, when the light is not too harsh, the system will guide the shutters and blinds to open causing sunlight to stream in. This method can be used in rooms where you may not have the time to pay complete attention at all times. It is extremely useful for those people who are not home during the day. In case you forget to close your shades, your intelligent system will do the needful for you.

    • Some garages and driveways feature turntables. These turntables move and move the car located on top of them. This provides the driver with convenience and allows him to exit the garage or driveway without reversing the car.

    • Opening and closing of the garage door. This movement can be automated from the comfort of your car.

Linear actuators can easily be incorporated in several more applications. Automation of functions is extremely useful to the user helping ease lives. By reducing manual effort, we are free to apply our time and energy into other productive tasks. Incorporation of these systems is helping make the human race more industrious.
