Intelligent House 4.0 – Installation and Configuration Smart Home Light Control

In this module you will learn how to install and configure a light control system as part of smart home infrastructure. The module is based on the students’ module with the same title which contains an exemplary collection of task that enable students to acquire competences in designing, installation and configuration of smart lighting systems in an existing house installation

The teacher’s module explains the developed teaching materials and gives hints for the practical implementation, evaluation and reflection of the submodule "Smart light control". Also, this material can be the basis for a development of further modules in other smart home areas (e.g. smart home and security, smart home and comfort, smart home and heating control).

The topic “Intelligent House 4.0” covers a wide range of competences which are mapped in the matrix. For the further education of teachers and trainers with regard to 4.0 competences, it is in a first step necessary to analyse one owns competences and then to acquire lacking competences. The mapped matrix shall help teacher and trainer in this process. References for possible online sources are given in the module.

Below you will find an illustration which shows a simple device that gathers smart home components. Thereunder is the teachers’ competence matrix 4.0 in which all necessary competences are mapped. After this and as core of this module, you find your tasks. You can either extend the smart home components and/or adapt it to other learning groups.
