  • Patent number: 10754161
    Abstract: An apparatus control system includes smart glasses worn by a user, a home electrical apparatus that is a target of control, and a controller that controls the home electrical apparatus. In the smart glasses, a sensor detects information including at least one of image information, motion information, biological information, or environmental information. A communicator transmits to the controller the information detected by the sensor. The controller, based on the information detected by the sensor, determines a recommended operation indicating operational content recommended with respect to a recommended apparatus, and transmits the determined recommended operation to the smart glasses. The communicator receives the recommended operation transmitted from the controller. The display displays a candidate group for selection of the home electrical apparatus along with a recommended operation received from the communicator.
