In this article, the authors describe the innovative training course "Intellectual electrical systems of a smart home". The course is implemented in accordance with the project ERASMUS + ALIOT and is focused on the training of masters in specialty 141 - "Electric power engineering, electrical engineering and electro-mechanics". The need to develop a course is caused by the trend in the development of modern electrical engineering. From ordinary electrotechnical devices the world passes at use of intellectual devices. The developed course consists of a series of lectures, laboratory works and course work. The article describes in detail the universal research laboratory stand "Smart House", on the basis of which a variety of laboratory works can be performed. The versatility of the stand is ensured by the fact that all device contacts allow their arbitrary commutation. An exemplary list of laboratory works that can be implemented is given.
