Main Focus

Interplays among Home Appliances

  • Garage door opener, home security system, temperature control, wired-/wireless communcation, etc.:

Garage door open over an extended period of time ->

    • Notify the owner || notify the owner, only if night time
      • If nobody outside, close it || if nobody outside, if no break-entry, close it
        • If not closing,
          • call in somebody
          • if nobody inside, deactivate temperature control

Garage door closed over an extended period of time ->

    • Notify the owner
      • If not responding, notify the police
  • On fire
    • Notify the owner || … AND the fire department
    • Activate water sprinkler system
    • Close doors and windows || …OR selectively
    • Deactivate other appliances || … OR selectively

Work in ProgressInterplays among Home Appliances
  • Conquering complexity
  • Exploring all the essential scenarios as completely as possible

in a timely and cost-effective manner

  • Addressing both functional- and non-functional interplays
  • Ensuring consistency among scenario-specific solutions
  • Garage door opener, home security system, temperature control, wired-/wireless communcation, etc.:

Garage door open over an extended period of time

    • Notify the owner || notify the owner, only if night time
      • If nobody outside, close it || if nobody outside, if no break-entry, close it
        • If not closing,
          • call in somebody
          • if nobody inside, deactivate temperature control
