CLAIMS

1 . Method for detecting the actuation of commands given to electric and electronic devices, said electric and electronic devices being connected to smart current sockets which are configured to monitor the consumption of electrical current, characterized in that said method provides for the following steps:

- reading and measuring the current absorbed in a time interval during the actuation of an electric or electronic device, so as to monitor the actual performance of a command given to said device,

- self-learning of a standard graph of the current absorbed by said electric or electronic device over time,

- assessing, by means of a system firmware, that said command actually produced said actuation of said electric or electronic device by comparing said standard graph of the current absorbed by said electric or electronic device over time with the diagrams of the current absorbed by said electric or electronic device during subsequent implementation steps.

2. Method according to claim 1 , characterized in that said electric or electronic device is a light bulb or a system for automatically closing the shutters of the windows of a building.

3. Method according to at least one of the previous claims, characterized in that, if during said implementation steps, differences are detected with respect to said standard graph which generate the exceeding of one or more thresholds of current absorbed by said electric or electronic device, an alarm signal is generated.

4. Method according to at least one of the previous claims, characterized in that said standard graph of the current absorbed by said electric or electronic device has a starting current peak, an average consumption current and a final current peak, which corresponds to the reaching of a limit stop.

5. Method according to claim 4, characterized in that said final current peak is used as a feedback data to inform the user that the command has been successful.

6. Method according to at least one of the previous claims, characterized in that a phase is provided for defining a standard graph of the current absorbed by the electric or electronic device over time, and for comparing said standard graph with the graphs produced as a result of subsequent actuations of said electric or electronic device and, if there are differences exceeding a given average current absorption threshold, an alarm is generated, while, if said differences are not detected, said phase is provided to guarantee and certify that the command sent to the electric or electronic device has been correctly implemented by said electric or electronic device.
