Description  translated from Chinese
用于控制房屋电气和/或电子装置操作地集成可编程系统 Housing for controlling the electrical and / or electronic means operatively integrated programmable system

技术领域 FIELD

本发明涉及集成可编程系统,用于控制房屋,例如住宅、公寓或办公室的电气和/或电子装置的操作,特别地,这种系统允许终端用户按其意愿编程这些装置的操作的模式和方式。 The present invention relates to integrated programmable system for controlling housing, such as electric homes, apartments or office and / or operation of the electronic device, in particular, this system allows the end-user mode and manner of operation of these devices according to their wishes programming .

背景技术 BACKGROUND

随着技术进步,家庭自动化是很久以来努力实现的目标。 With advances in technology, home automation is a long time to achieve the goal. 家庭自动化将为有残疾或年老的人提供更多自由和自动化。 Home automation for the elderly or people with disabilities to provide more freedom and automation. 家庭的其他成员将受益于由家庭自动化提供的舒适和便利。 Other members of the family will benefit from the comfort and convenience offered by home automation.

然而,现有的家庭自动化的方法实际上是私有的,并且是不能适应市场增长的不可扩展的方案。 However, the existing home automation method actually is private and is not scalable solutions can not meet the market growth. 每个公司或学校具有自己的系统或基本结构,与其他公司或学校的不可兼容。 Each company or school has its own system, or the basic structure, can not be compatible with other companies or schools. 简单地说,系统和基本协议均是厂商特定的。 Simply put, the system and the basic protocols are vendor specific.

另外,现有的家用电器和电子系统经受下述缺点和局限: In addition, the existing home appliances and electronic systems to withstand the following disadvantages and limitations:

a.装置大多数是独立的,因此功能上彼此分开。 a. means mostly independent, functionally separated from each other.

b.装置的所有功能和限制是由制造商/供货商预设的。 b. All the capabilities and limitations of the device by the manufacturer / supplier default.

c.非常少的装置是“交叉应用型”,例如连接到标准安全控制面板的运动检测器通常不能用于居住节能或居住报警目的。 c. a very small device is "crossover application type," such as the control panel is connected to the standard security motion detector is typically not available for live or live saving alarm purposes.

d.各种装置会具有一些共同的功能。 d. all kinds of devices will have some common features. 例如,响铃的闹钟、在某一预定时间调谐到广播电台的无线电时钟、定期开启的喷洒控制面板、在无活动的预定时间后关灯的居住节能器以及记录电视节目的录像机均包含内部时钟。 For example, the alarm rings at a predetermined time to tune to a radio clock radio, regular spraying open the Control Panel, after a predetermined time of inactivity lights of an economizer and VCR recording live television programs contain an internal clock . 从最小处来说,这是资源的不必要重复。 From the smallest point, it is unnecessary duplication of resources. 这些内部时钟也不是彼此同步,增加了多个装置彼此一致工作的难度。 These internal clocks are not synchronized with each other, increasing the difficulty of the work of multiple devices consistent with each other.

e.向装置增加原先不是由制造商/供货商设想的新功能非常困难,有时是不可能的。 e. the increase is not a new feature to the device by the original manufacturer / supplier of vision is very difficult and sometimes impossible.

f.在不安装更多导线的情况下,很难将音频和/或视频信号发送到房屋的不同位置。 f. Under no installation of additional wires, it is difficult to send audio and / or video signals to different locations housing. 通常,在任何可能的音频和/或视频源和目的地配对间布线是必要的,这导致全部安装需要大量导线。 Typically, between any possible audio and / or video source and destination pair cabling is necessary, which results in all of the installation requires a lot of wires.

g.大多数装置具有它们各自的遥控设备,导致在房屋四周散布大量遥控设备,造成混淆和不便。 remote control device g. Most devices have their own, resulting in a large number of remote control devices scattered around the house, causing confusion and inconvenience.

h.在一些情况下,需要几个设备的协作。 h. In some cases, several devices need to collaborate. 例如,为观看DVD影片,电视机必须切到AV模式,必须选择用于放大器的DVD视频输入和适当的数字音频模式,然后接通DVD播放器以便播放DVD盘,帘子必须放下并使光变暗。 For example, to watch a DVD movie, the TV must be cut to the AV mode, the amplifier must be selected for the DVD-Video input and appropriate digital audio mode, then turn on the DVD player in order to play a DVD disc, you must put aside the curtain and light dims . 因此,用户在他能坐下来欣赏DVD影片前,必须执行所有这些功能,以及当他结束观看DVD影片以及想再次观看电视时,又得反过来执行这些功能。 Therefore, the user before he can sit back and enjoy DVD movies, you must perform all of these functions, and when he finished watching a DVD movie and want to watch TV again, they have to turn to perform these functions.

由此,可以公正地说所有现有的电气和/或电子装置在独立基础上操作,如果有的话,也具有非常有限的用于协同操作的相互集成的能力。 Thus, it is fair to say that all existing electrical and / or electronic devices based on the independent operation, if any, also has a very limited ability to integrate with each other for collaborative action. 特别地,没有中央控制和操作这些装置的方法。 In particular, there is no central control apparatus and method for these operations. 即使在允许集成同一制造商的多个装置的情况下,这些也均是由制造商预先设计和预先确定的,因此是封闭的平台。 Even under conditions allowing the integration of multiple devices of the same manufacturer, these also are pre-designed and pre-determined by the manufacturer, and is therefore closed platform. 因此,这不能由终端用户负责根据他或她自己从实际环境考虑的需要,来将这些装置的功能集成。 Therefore, this can not be responsible for the end-user based on his or her own account of the needs of the actual environment to integrate the functionality of these devices.

此外,在传统的安全系统中,设置安全区以及通常是面向地理位置的,例如,每个房间一个区。 In addition, the traditional security system, set up security for the geographic area, and usually, for example, an area in each room. 在各个区中的传感器设备均连接到中心安全控制板。 The sensor device in each zone are connected to a central security control board. 每个特定区可以单独地武装或解除。 Each specific area can be individually armed or released. 在触发任何设备时,并且该区被武装时,执行预定动作,例如,发出警报。 When the trigger on any device, and when the area is armed, perform a predetermined action, such as an alarm. 然而,并没有该情形的估计,即相关传感器的每个触发器被视为安全事件请求动作。 However, there is no estimate of the situation, each trigger sensors that are considered relevant security events requested action. 不可能根据每个单独的传感器设备提供的报警信号的重要性指定相关的等级。 Impossible to specify the relevant class according to the importance of each individual sensor device provides an alarm signal. 例如,通常难以编程控制面板来触发报警信号,仅当检测器和传感器在彼此短期内同时激活时,并且甚至通过更高级的控制面板,也很少支持更多设备和复杂关系。 For example, it is often difficult programming control panel to trigger an alarm signal only when the detectors and sensors at each other while the short-term activation, and even by the more advanced control panel, and rarely support more devices and complex relationships. 因此,错误报警是很常见的。 Thus, false alarms are very common.

也难以从安全配置排除特定的一系列活动或特定设备,除非在其自己的区内布线该设备,在这种情况下,能单独地解除它。 It is difficult to exclude specific security configuration from a series of events or a specific device, unless the wiring of the device in its own area, in this case, it can be lifted individually. 因此,通常不可能将该系统设置成例如其忽略事件顺序,其中,打开卧室门,之后是楼梯上的运动以及厨房中的运动(共同表示有人起床喝水),但在一系列相反的事件中,声音报警,其共同表示窃贼从厨房闯入并进入卧室。 Thus, the system is generally not possible to set the sequence of events such as ignore, wherein the bedroom door open, followed by the movement and the movement in the kitchen on the stairs (collectively represent someone up water), but in the opposite series of events audible alarm, which together represent the thieves broke into the bedroom and into the kitchen. 因此,传统的系统使得用户要么接受一视同仁的均安全的情况,要么接受所有不安全的情况。 Therefore, the traditional system allows users to either accept the security situation are treated equally, either accept all unsafe situations.

由于至少在理论上,有与它们通信或控制它们的无限多种设备或装置以及不同方法,对智能控制器系统软件来说,将用于各个设备或装置的通信协议和命令转化成易于配合到系统100中的统一方案。 Since at least theoretically, there is a communication with them or their unlimited variety of different equipment or apparatus and method for controlling the smart controller system software, communication protocols, and commands for each device or apparatus to be converted into easy-to-fit System 100 unified solution. 这些程序逻辑形成统一设备抽象层,并且均匀方案格式是统一设备空间。 The program logic device abstraction layer to form a unified and uniform program format is unified device space.

可能的统一设备空间格式可以是简单的设备名加上属性名,如表1中所示: Possible uniform format device space can be a simple device name with the property name, as shown in Table 1:

表一 Table I

该系统软件将实际设备状态和设定值转换成这一统一设备空间格式。 The system software will convert the actual device status and settings into the unified device space format. 例如,电视机可以是“传统设备”,即不具备内置数字通信功能的设备。 For example, the TV can be "legacy devices" that do not have built-in digital communication devices. 光传感器可以连接到数字I/O板以便检测电视机电源LED是否打开。 Light sensor can be connected to the digital I / O board to detect the TV power LED is turned on. 如果是,将“电视机”设备的“通电(PowerOn)”属性设置成真。 If yes, the "TV" device "Power (PowerOn)" property is set to true. 物理电流传感器可以连接到模拟电压计以便检测音量级。 Physical current sensor can be connected to an analog voltage meter to detect the volume level. 为打开/关闭电视机或改变频道/音量,可以呼叫红外发射设备发出相关的红外遥控码。 To turn on / turn off the TV or change the channel / volume, you can call the infrared emission devices emit infrared remote control code related. 空调可以受连通空气调节装置控制。 Communication may be conditioned by the air conditioner control. 在这种情况下,找出当前温度和功率状态等可以由通过其RS232端口连接到空气调节装置的串行电缆,以空调的通信协议规定的格式发送相关文字命令并等待响应来实现。 In this case, to identify the current temperature and the like may be connected by a power state via its RS232 serial cable port to the air conditioner device, a communication protocol format to a predetermined air-conditioning sends the relevant text commands and awaits a response to achieve. 在第一种情况下,即,具有“传统”电视机的情况下,系统软件将多个物理度量转换成在统一设备空间表示的逻辑值。 In the case where the first case, i.e., with "traditional" TV, the system software is converted into a logic value of a plurality of physical measurement space represented in a unified device. 在第二种情况下,系统软件将空调的通信协议转换成统一设备空间中的值。 In the second case, the system software is converted into a unified communication protocol air conditioning equipment space value.

统一设备空间的好处在于在本系统100中,所有其它系统模块能通过控制、测量和检测它们以及它们的状态和设定值的方式工作。 Benefit of a device space is 100 in the present system, by controlling all other system modules, their measurement and detection method, and their working conditions and the set value. 对系统定制脚本(见下文),用户只需简单地发布: For system customization script (see below), the user simply release:

SetDeviceProperty(″TV″,″PowerOn″,True) SetDeviceProperty ("TV", "PowerOn", True)

SetDeviceProperty(″A/C″,″PowerOn″,True) SetDeviceProperty ("A / C", "PowerOn", True)

以便同时开启电视机和空调。 Turn on the TV and air conditioning in order to simultaneously. 系统软件自动地将这些统一设备空间命令转换成由红外发射器向电视机发送的适当的红外码,以及经RS232向空调的温度调节装置发送的适当的文字命令。 System software automatically converts these unified command to the appropriate device space infrared codes sent by the infrared transmitter to the TV, as well as via RS232 to adjust the air conditioning unit suitable to send text commands.

关于公用数字通信中枢,这些可以是在100Base-T(快速Ethernet)标准(IEEE802.3u)下的电缆、无线局域网或光纤上的传输控制协议/网际协议(TCP/IP)或帧中继/异步传输模式(FR/ATM)或虚拟专用网(VPN)。 On public digital communication hub, which may be in the 100Base-T (Fast Ethernet) standard (IEEE802.3u) cable, transmission control protocol on a wireless LAN or fiber / Internet Protocol (TCP / IP) or frame relay / asynchronous transmission mode (FR / ATM) or a virtual private network (VPN).

扬声器连接到放大器,放大器然后连接到智能控制器108的数字音频输出端口。 Speakers connected to the amplifier, the amplifier is then connected to the intelligent controller 108 digital audio output port. 经扬声器放大和输出由智能控制器108产生的音频信号(例如音乐或系统报警消息)。 Audio signals (such as music or system alarm messages) through the speaker amplified and output generated by the intelligent controller 108. 如果智能控制器108控制不止一组扬声器,那么在智能控制器108内安装单独的数字声卡,每个声卡连接到与每组扬声器相连的单独放大器。 If the intelligent controller 108 controls more than one set of speakers, then install a separate sound card in the smart digital controller 108, each connected to a separate sound amplifier connected with each set of speakers. 在一些房间,例如娱乐室内可以有单独的本地高端高保真系统。 In some rooms, for example, may have a separate indoor recreation local high-end hi-fi systems. 在这种情况下,将来自连接到智能控制器108的放大器的扬声器线输出以及来自本地高保真系统的扬声器线输出均连接到中继开关的输入(本地系统到常闭输入,智能控制器108到常开输入),并将中继开关的输出连接到实际扬声器。 In this case, from the intelligent controller connected to the amplifier 108 and speaker line output line output from the local high-fidelity speaker systems are connected to the relay switch input (the local system to the normally closed input, the intelligent controller 108 to normally open input), and the output relay switch is connected to the real speaker. 通过连接到智能控制器108的模拟音频输出的音频信号传感器激活中继开关。 By connecting to the intelligent controller of the audio signal from the sensor 108 to activate the analog audio output of the relay switch.

通过这种配置,当智能控制器108不在播放音频信号时,中继开关将停留在常闭位置,其将本地高保真系统连接到扬声器。 With this arrangement, when the intelligent controller 108 not playing audio signal, the relay switch will remain in the normally closed position, which is connected to the local high-fidelity speaker system. 在由智能控制器108生成音频信号时,音频信号传感器将激活中继开关,然后其将切换到常开位置,断开本地高保真系统以及将智能控制器放大器与扬声器连接。 When the audio signal 108 is generated by the intelligent controller, the audio signal from the sensor will activate the relay switch, and then it will switch to the normally open position, disconnect the local hi-fi system and the intelligent controller amplifier and speaker connections. 因此,来自智能控制器108的任何音频输出将覆盖来自本地系统的音频输出。 Therefore, any audio output from the intelligent controller 108 will cover the audio output from the local system. 当必须听到某些系统生成的音频输出(例如报警消息、警告消息)并因此应当覆盖当前正在播放的任何其它音频流时,这是至关紧要的。 When it is necessary to hear the audio output of some system-generated (eg alarm messages, warning messages) and should therefore be covered by any other currently playing audio stream, which is crucial. 当智能控制器108停止输出音频信号时,音频信号传感器将断电,并且中断开关将返回到常闭位置,从而断开智能控制器108以及重新接本地高保真系统和扬声器。 When the intelligent controller 108 stops outputting audio signals, the audio signal from the sensor will be de-energized and the interruption switch returns to the normally closed position to disconnect and reconnect the intelligent controller 108 local hi-fi system and speakers.

这种配置的好处包括: This configuration benefits include:

-降低物理布线的数量,特别是当数字通信中枢用于传送几乎所有类型的程序和音频信号时; - Reducing the number of physical wires, especially when the digital communication hub when transferring almost all types of programs and audio signals;

-这允许将同组硬件用于所有音频生成目的; - This allows the same set of hardware for all audio generation purposes;

-在所有区中共享预先记录的音频片断; - Share of pre-recorded audio clips in all areas;

-可以在每个不同区中以其自己的各自速度播放不同音频片断; - You can play at their own pace each different audio clips in each of the different regions;

-可以在地理上彼此远离的不同区中播放相同音频片断;以及 - Different zones may be geographically remote from each other to play the same audio fragment; and

-将本地高保真系统无缝集成到这一配置中。 - The local hi-fi system is seamlessly integrated into the configuration.

比较起来,图7表示实现音频分发模块的已知方法的示意图,其昂贵且不太灵活。 By comparison, Figure 7 shows a schematic diagram of a known method of implementation of an audio distribution module, which is expensive and less flexible. 源设备,诸如DVD播放器140、CD转换器、无线电调谐器142、MD唱盘等均位于中央位置。 Source device, such as a DVD player 140, CD converter, a radio tuner 142, MD disc etc. is located centrally. 来自源设备的音频信号被输送到矩阵开关146,要么放大要么预放大。 Audio signal from the source device is supplied to the matrix switch 146, either amplification or pre-amplification. 将矩阵开关映射到多个区,每个区表示音频信号的房间或特定目的地。 The mapping matrix switch into multiple zones, each room represents an audio signal or a specific destination. 扬声器导线伸出矩阵开关146直接到每个区中的扬声器148,每个区一组。 Speaker wires protruding matrix switch 146 directly to each zone speaker 148, a group for each area. 矩阵开关146由不同控制设备控制,例如遥控、壁式面板(wall panel)等。 Matrix switch 146 by a different controlling device, such as remote control, wall panels (wall panel) and the like. 在任何一个时间,将特定程序源连接到(切换到)特定区,允许该区中的扬声器148接收程序源的输出。 At any one time, the source is connected to a specific program (switch to) a particular area, allowing the area of the speaker 148 outputs the received program source. 独立的路由技术必须用于控制独立的程序源设备,例如红外遥控设备使用红外辐射来将遥控信号传送到一个源设备,以及射频遥控装置可以用射频信号控制设备。 Separate routing techniques must be used to control independent of the source device, such as an infrared remote control device using infrared radiation to be transmitted to a remote-control signal source device, and a radio frequency remote control device may be a radio frequency signal control apparatus.

图11表示集成自动喷洒系统,形成图1所示的系统的一部分。 Figure 11 shows an integrated automatic sprinkler systems, part of the system shown in Figure 1 is formed. 该喷洒器系统包括通过公用通信中枢连接到系统100的中央服务器120的时钟180和电子气象站182。 The sprinkler system includes a connection to the system 100 via the communication hub of the central server 120, 180 and electronic weather station clock 182. 中央服务器120包含已经预置的逻辑184,以便当预定时间(如由时钟180所计算的)达到时还没有下雨,将起动也连接到该系统的喷洒器186。 Central server 120 includes logic 184 have been preset, so that when a predetermined time (e.g., calculated by the clock 180) no rain Shihai reached, the starter is also connected to the sprinkler system 186.

图12是表示如上所述的中央服务器120的操作的流程图。 FIG 12 is a flowchart showing the operation of the central server 120 as described above. 当启动系统100时,首先初始化(步骤302)。 When you start the system 100, the first initialization (step 302). 加载设备数据库304(步骤306),然后加载触发器和脚本(步骤308)。 Loading device database 304 (step 306), then load the trigger and script (step 308). 然后,连接智能控制器108(步骤310)。 Then, connect the intelligent controller 108 (step 310). 然后系统100校验在UDAL中或到UDAL是否有改变(步骤312)。 Then the system check 100 in UDAL or whether there is a change to UDAL (step 312). 如果有,设备数据库304将更新(步骤314),以及如果历史要被存储(步骤316),将写档案(步骤318)。 If there is, the device database 304 is updated (step 314), and if the history is to be stored (step 316), the write file (step 318). 然后,系统100将校验触发器是否被触发(步骤320)。 Then, the system will check whether the trigger 100 is activated (step 320). 如果是,将产生脚本(步骤322),但如果不是,将校验其他模块(步骤324),以及如果检测到正结果,将执行特定模块动作(步骤326),例如通过发送适当的控制命令。 If so, the script will be generated (step 322), but if not, other modules will check (step 324), and if a positive result is detected, the module performs a specific operation (step 326), e.g., by sending appropriate control commands. 如果另一方面,在UDAL中没有改变或没有到UDAL的改变,系统将检验控制命令(步骤328)。 If on the other hand, there is no change in UDAL UDAL or not to change, the system will test the control command (step 328). 如果结果为正,UDAL值改变将发送到智能控制器108(步骤330)。 If the result is positive, UDAL value changes are sent to the smart controller 108 (step 330). 如果不是,系统中的时钟将检验现在是否为某些预定事件的时间(步骤332)。 If not, the system will test whether the current clock time for some predetermined event (step 332). 如果是,将产生适当的脚本(步骤322),但如果不是,系统100将恢复校验在UDAL中或到UDAL是否有改变(步骤312)。 If so, the appropriate script is generated (step 322), but if not, the system 100 will return to check whether there is a change in UDAL or to UDAL (step 312).

关于图13,是表示如上所述的智能控制器108的操作的流程图。 About 13, is a flowchart 108 of the intelligent controller as described above operations. 当启动系统100时,将初始化系统(步骤402),以及将从数据库406加载本地和设备UDAL(步骤404)。 When you start the system 100, the system is initialized (step 402), and 406 loaded from the database of local and equipment UDAL (step 404). 也将从数据库406加载设备设定值(步骤408)。 Also loaded from the database 406 machine settings (step 408). 然后,将智能控制器108连接到系统100(步骤410)。 Then, the intelligent controller 108 is connected to the system 100 (step 410). 然后,控制器108扫遍中央数据库以及识别连接到各个控制器108的所有设备和装置并获得它们的地址。 Then, the controller 108 sweep over the central database and identify all equipment and devices connected to each controller 108 and get their addresses. 还初始化所有相连的设备(步骤412)。 Also initializes all the devices (step 412) is connected. 通过由各自地址提供的信息,初始化每个设备/装置。 By providing the respective address information by initializing each device / devices. 这是通过为设备或装置的每个类型/品牌/模型而专门开发的单独程序逻辑来完成的。 This is done by each type of device or devices / brand / model specifically developed to complete a separate application logic. 一些设备或装置,例如用于声音生成的声卡安装在智能控制器108内。 Some equipment or devices, such as a sound card for sound generation is installed in the intelligent controller 108. 这些设备/装置用与其外部的设备/装置相同的方式被智能控制器108控制,尽管在设备/装置安装在智能控制器108内的情况下,它们不必经物理布线向智能控制器108发送信号,通信通常更可靠且瞬时。 These devices / device and its external equipment means the same way / are intelligent controller 108 controls, although in the case of equipment / device is mounted in the controller 108 of the intelligent, they are not necessarily physically wiring 108 sends a signal to the intelligent controller, Communication is generally more reliable and instantaneous. 然后更新所有设备状态(步骤414)。 Then update the status of all devices (step 414). 转换器存在以便调用特定控制协议来获得它们状态的状况(步骤416)。 Converter in order to invoke the presence of a specific control protocol to obtain the status of their state (step 416).

智能控制器108将维持与设备/装置通信。 Intelligent controller 108 will maintain / devices communicate with the device. 当状态或设定值已经改变,例如当温度有变化时温度调节装置的状态将改变,装置可以自动发送通知消息。 When the status has changed or a set value, e.g., when the temperature of the temperature adjusting means changes the state of the change, the device can automatically send a notification message. 装置,例如数字I/O模块另一方面可以要求定期轮询以便发现其当前状态和设定值,然后将它们与状态和设定值的系统内部副本进行比较以便发现它们中是否有任何改变。 Devices, such as digital I / O modules may be required to periodically poll the other hand in order to find its current status and settings, and then copy them to the internal system status and set values are compared to find out if there are any changes in them.

然后,系统100将连续地检验在各个设备和装置的状态中是否已经有任何改变(步骤418)。 Then, the system 100 continuously checks whether there has been any change in the status of each device and the device (step 418). 如果在设备和/或装置的状态或设定值中有改变,该设备/装置所连的智能控制器108将向家庭服务器106发送信息以便其他程序或其他智能控制器可以作用于该信息。 If there is a change in state or setpoint device and / or the apparatus, the apparatus / device are attached intelligent controller 108 will send information to the home server 106 to other programs or other intelligent controller can act on the information. 设备状态将映射成UDAL值(步骤420),且该UDAL值然后在服务器中更新(步骤422)。 Device status will be mapped into UDAL value (step 420), and then updates the UDAL value in the server (step 422). 这次更新(步骤420)之后,或如果在状态中没有任何变化,那么系统将校验是否有任何UDAL变化(步骤424)。 The update (step 420) after or if there is no change in the state, then the system will check if there are any UDAL change (step 424). 如果有任何UDAL变化,UDAL值将映射成设备状态(步骤426),以及相应地设置设备状态(步骤428)。 If there are any changes UDAL, UDAL value will be mapped into the device state (step 426), and accordingly set the device state (step 428). 然后,转换器将状态变化转换成特定控制协议(步骤430),用于操作与智能控制器108相连的装置或设备。 Then, the converter will convert into a specific state change control protocol (step 430), for the operation of the device or devices connected to the intelligent controller 108. 特别地,转换器能将控制各个设备的专用装置转换成标准接口,以便允许系统100经统一方式控制和兼容电气和/或电子设备。 Special apparatus Specifically, the converter can control the respective devices into a standard interface to allow the control system 100 via a unified manner and a compatible electrical and / or electronic devices. 当根据系统100指示时,智能控制器108将对这一请求起使用以便控制或启动设备/装置上的动作。 When the system 100 according to instructions from the intelligent controller 108 will request the use of the device in order to control or initiate action on the unit /. 实现这些动作的特定方式由装置的品牌和模型,以及由该装置所使用的通信协议而定。 Specific manner in which these actions by the brand and model of the device, and a communication protocol used by the device may be. 智能控制器108还由图形芯片建立用户接口,其输出直接连接到可视输出,例如电视机,以便允许用户使用电视机来控制系统100。 Intelligent controller 108 also established by the graphic user interface chip, whose output is directly connected to the visual output, such as a television, to allow the user to use the television control system 100.

通过本发明,可以构造和实现基于威胁的安全系统。 By the present invention, may be constructed and implemented security system based threats. 在这种系统中,将“事件”定义成输入服务(例如传感器)的状态中的变化;将“组”定义成看作形成相干集的类似事件的集合(例如在安全区中);“威胁”由事件代表的安全危险的量和性质作为参考来确定,给出先前事件的顺序和威胁级别;以及“动作”是当特定威胁超出预定阈值水平时执行的动作,其可以由先前检测的事件的顺序和性质来控制。 In this system, the "event" is defined as an input service (such as sensors) state changes; the "group" is defined as the formation of a coherent set of similar regarded as a collection of events (for example, in the security zone); "threat "The amount and nature of the security risks represented by the event as a reference to determine, in the order given, and threat level of previous events; and" action "is the action when a specific threat exceeds a predetermined threshold level when executed, which may consist of a previously detected event The order and properties to control.

在这种系统中,当已经改变输入服务/传感器的特定状态时,例如,窗户传感器从关改变成开时,检测事件。 In such a system, when the state has changed to enter specific service / sensor, for example, the window sensors changed from OFF to On, detection event. 如此检测的事件映射到包含特定事件类型的一组上,例如正打开窗户。 Thus detected events mapped to a specific type of event on a group, such as the windows are open. 每个映射组具有内在的优选级,以及然后根据优选级排序组列表,允许由更专用的组来覆盖更通用的组,例如允许除特定窗户外,监视所有窗户打开。 Each mapping class group is inherently preferable, and then sort the list according to the preferred level, allowing the more specialized groups to cover more general group, such as allowing a specific window in addition, the monitoring of all the windows open.

然后,将最高优先级的组映射到当激活组时将触发的一组威胁。 Then, the highest priority group is mapped to a set of threat when the activation group will trigger. 根据特定事件以及先前事件的顺序,如果有的话,每个威胁将产生相应的威胁等级数以及威胁类型。 According to the order of a particular event and the previous event, if any, each threat will produce a corresponding threat level number and types of threats. 例如,如果在由窗户附近的运动检测器检测到运动后,正打开窗户则特别可疑。 For example, if detected by the motion detector near a window to the sport, are opening the windows were particularly suspicious. 然而,如果在房间内的运动后打开窗户,可疑等级将较低,其可以表示房间内的某个人正打开窗户通风。 However, if you open the window after exercise room, suspicious grades will be lower, which may represent a person in the room are open the windows for ventilation.

最高威胁等级将当作这一特定事件的威胁等级,因为该事件可以表示用于不同区域/情形的不同威胁等级,以及仅考虑最高威胁等级。 The highest threat level as the threat level of this particular event, because the event may represent different areas / situations different threat levels, and consider only the highest threat level. 该系统将监视当前威胁等级,以及将当前事件的威胁等级增加到当前威胁等级上,在这种情况下,连续地监视和评估房屋的威胁度。 The system will monitor the current threat level, as well as the threat level increases to current events on the current threat level in this case, to continuously monitor and assess the threat of the housing. 如果在任何时间,结果的当前威胁等级超出预定水平,那么将采取一个或多个预定动作,例如触发报警和/或开启庭院内的灯。 If at any time, the result of the current threat level exceeds the predetermined level, then will take one or more predetermined actions, such as triggering an alarm lamp courtyard and / or open. 在事件间通过预定时间周期后,将按预定百分比降低当前威胁等级,以便在长时间期间发生的事件被视为比非常短时间期间发生的事件造成更小的威胁,即一个事件在另一个之后立即发生。 During a predetermined time period after the event by, will reduce the predetermined percentage of the current threat level, so that the event occurred during long been regarded as a very short time period than the event occurred, causing more small threat, i.e., after an event in another occur immediately.

例如,下述表2提供指定给由安全系统的传感器检测到的示例性事件的列表的假定威胁等级: For example, the following Table 2 provides a list of assigned by the security system sensor detects the event of an exemplary assumption Threat Level:

表2 Table 2

假定系统设置成: Assumes that the system is configured to:

a.如果在任何一点,当前威胁等级达到至少10,将响应报警; . a If at any point, the current threat level to at least 10, will respond to the alarm;

b.随着每过去5分钟,当前威胁等级将自动下降10%,其间该系统未检测到新事件。 b. As per the last five minutes, the current threat level will automatically drop 10 percent, during the system does not detect a new event.

在这一例子中,如果在庭院中检测到运动,威胁等级将为1。 In this example, if the motion is detected in the courtyard, the threat level will be 1. 如果5分钟后未检测到新事件,威胁等级将下降到0.9,以及如果对另一5分钟,仍然未检测到事件,随后将为0.81。 If not detected after 5 minutes a new event, the threat level will drop to 0.9, and another five minutes if the event is still not detected, then will be 0.81. 假定在庭院中运动的2分钟内,检测到厨房窗打开,威胁等级将为4(即1+3)。 Assumed in the courtyard moving within two minutes, detects the kitchen window open, the threat level will be 4 (or 1 + 3). 因此,如果在打开厨房窗的30秒内,检测到厨房中的运动,威胁等级将上升到8(即4+4)。 Thus, if in the open kitchen window 30 seconds, detected movement in the kitchen, the threat level will rise to 8 (i.e. 4 + 4). 如果在5分钟内,检测到主卧室或存放保险箱的书房内的运动,威胁等级将上升到10或12。 If, within five minutes, detects the master bedroom or den safe storage of movement within, the threat level will rise to 10 or 12. 在任何一种情况下,将响起报警。 In either case, the alarm will sound. 然后,如果在假定6分钟后,检测到主卧室中的运动,威胁等级将仅为9.2(即8*90%+2),因此不足以引起报警。 Then, if the assumed six minutes later, detects motion in the master bedroom, the threat level will be only 9.2 (ie 8 * 90% + 2), and therefore not enough to cause alarm. 另一方面,如果假定在10分钟后,在存放保险箱的书房内检测到运动,威胁等级将为10.48(即8*90%*90%+4)。 On the other hand, if it is assumed after 10 minutes, in a storage safe den motion is detected, threat level will be 10.48 (i.e., 8 * 90% * 90% + 4). 在这种情况下,将仍然引起报警。 In this case, will still cause an alarm.

采用另一例子,如果事件顺序不同,假定在存放保险箱的书房中检测到运动,其后是5分钟内的厨房中的运动,然后其后是5分钟内打开厨房窗,然后是5分钟内的庭院中的运动,威胁等级将仅为9,其不足以引起报警。 Uses another example, if the sequence of events is different, assuming that motion is detected in the storage safe den, the kitchen, followed within five minutes of exercise, and then followed by the open kitchen window within five minutes, then within 5 minutes courtyard motion, the threat level will be only 9, its not enough to cause alarm.

这种基于威胁的安全系统的优点和特征包括: Such threats based advantages and features of the safety system comprising:

a.代替仅注意在单个设备/传感器的触发,还注意到房屋的居住者更关心的实际事件; . a note instead of only a single device in the trigger / sensor, also noted that actual events are more concerned about the occupants of the housing;

b.事件由以特定预定顺序触发的多个设备组成; . b events from multiple devices in a specific predetermined sequence triggered composition;

c.设备触发以及这些触发的顺序都被考虑;以及 . c triggering device and the order of these triggers are considered; and

d.根据是否已经记录某些事件,以及如果是,当那个事件被记录时,连续地监视和评估威胁等级。 d. Depending on whether certain events have been recorded, and if it is, when the event is logged, to continuously monitor and evaluate the threat level.

通过这种配置,基于它具有的实际威胁度,每个单个事件可用更智能的方法被分类,。 With this configuration, based on the actual degree of threat it has every single event can be classified more intelligent way. 当然,这是某些事件比其他更重要的问题。 Of course, this is more important than some events other problems. 错误报警将被降低。 False alarms will be reduced. 能将安全破坏事件与单纯的警告分开,从而使安全注意力集中到真正重要的事件上。 Security breaches can simply warn separate events, so that the security focus on the really important events. 根据威胁度能触发不同的响应动作,从而保证响应相关事件,能采取适当的动作。 According to the degree of threat can trigger a different response actions to ensure the response-related events, to take appropriate action.

通过根据本发明的上述集成可编程系统的配置,能实现下述功能: By arranging the integrated programmable system according to the present invention, to achieve the following functions:

a.身份识别; . a identification;

b.用于温度、照明、音乐、音频和/或可视装置的个性化设置; . b for temperature, lighting, music, audio, and personalization / or visual device disposed;

c.婴儿和老人监视; . c monitored infants and the elderly;

d.例如通过音频信号通知重大事件; . d major events such as the notification by the audio signal;
