DRI0001 - Lightning Damage & Automated Homes



Lightning Damage and Automated Homes is a one-hour presentation that will educate the audience on lightning damage to electronic appliances and/or devices typically located within a residential setting, with an emphasis on smart (or automated) homes. Beginning with a study of smart homes, this presentation will cover the devices often found within automated residences and the software systems used to connect all components. Participants will also become familiarized with many aspects of lightning, including characteristics, types, and sources. Using data and case studies, the presentation will then connect the two concepts, explaining how lightning interacts with Earth, damages these interactions may cause, and how to evaluate the damages, particularly with regards to automated homes.
