Smart Ideas - Home Automation Industry using IoTBy CIOAdvisor Apac | Wednesday, April 03, 2019
Life is getting simpler and less-demanding in all aspects, and it happened with the development of innovation. Home automation is the modern technology that modifies various actions performed at the home. Home automation is already the buzz word; there is no wonder with it. The apparent benefit of home automation is comfort and convenience. Thus, smart homes are filled with the possibilities to make life more comfortable, much easier, and more convenient. This intelligent automation has implemented with the help of IoT (Internet of Things). IoT is an upcoming technology, which allows users to control hardware device through the internet. Following are the ways that IoT uses to shape the future of the home automation industry.
Platform independent control: Utility products (air conditioners, coffee makers, refrigerators, washing machines, sprinklers) will have switches, which means it can be controlled using voice commands, web platforms, mobile phones, and also by using smart wearables. Managing and accessing will be available everywhere. These platforms will be gradually standardized that can allow the manufacturers to develop smart products.
Self-diagnosing devices: All smart products should act self-diagnosing, means the devices should know the right time for maintenance. The consumers will be informed for the appointment of service, and the manufacturers will be notified before the failure of the product.
Know the masters: In home automation, security will act as another predominant area. With the implementation of video door-bells, homes can recognize the owners of the house and their friends and relatives easier. Instead of informing the owner as someone is outside knocking the door, it is better to recognize a face and deliver information about the person. This can help the owners to unlock the door remotely.
Entertainment systems: It is an integral part of home automation. With this, the user can stream music to any part of the house. Also, the music system will work alongside the lights and blinks to create the best mood for the users. Playing favorite music automatically will be even more personalized.
As technology is progressing, more and more computing power can be created with low power devices. Home automation will become the technology, which will make easy for the users to develop and build daily.
