How to protect your smart home system from a solar storm
Smart systems often run on batteries and solar panels that help keep their energy levels and operating costs down.
But these days, smart home systems can be powered by the power of the sun and solar energy is becoming more abundant.
It’s no longer enough just to have a solar panel on the wall and solar cells on the roof.
With smart systems coming online, you now need to protect them too.
How to find out if your home is protected from solar storms?
If you live in an area where solar energy production is increasing and you’ve got a smart system you should be able to find a way to protect it.
If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun shines every day in the South and if the South is still cloudy, you may need to switch off your smart system and install a protective cover over the system.
If it’s cloudy in the Southern Hemisphere, you’ll need to move your smart systems into an area that’s not as sunny and switch off the solar panel system too.
The most important thing to remember when trying to protect a smart home is that the more solar panels you put on the smart home, the less effective it will be at protecting your home.
If your smarts can’t keep up with solar output, you should try to make sure your smart panels have solar energy input on them and you’re not installing solar panels too close to your smart homes wiring.
What should I do if my smart system isn’t protected?
The best way to check if your smart device is protected is to take it outside and check if it can survive a solar flare or a solar blast.
Solar panels on smart homes are rated to produce up to 15 kilowatts of power, so if your system is producing that much energy you’ll want to be sure that it’s working well enough to keep it running.
If the panels don’t produce enough power, it’s probably time to replace the panels.
If there are no solar panels installed around your smart house, make sure that the solar panels are on the back of the smart unit and on the inside of the home.
Solar panel systems have been installed around the world and they’ve generally been good, so you may not need to worry about that.
However, if you don’t have solar panels on the front of your smart unit, it may be necessary to replace them to make room for the new solar panels.
Solar power systems in homes can be very expensive.
In the UK, solar panels in homes cost £20,000 ($30,000) and in Australia, the cost is around $30,0000 ($40,000).
But smart home manufacturers will typically offer discounts to buyers who upgrade their smart systems to SolarEdge or Solar Power for an additional cost of £500 ($1,000), which is just over £3,000 per home.
