Special Your Life Start From Special Your Home By Smart Tiger
Development Stages of Smart Home
From product itself, smart home development could be divided into 3 stages: single product, jointly of different product, and smart of whole system.
Smart home is a huge system, its almost impossible to make movie comes true, but to make typical product smart, make jointly of different products, and push other products become smart to achieve system smart its a possible solution of smart home.
first stage of smart home: smart single product
Make single product smart is a way has been chosed by most companies. And some companies choose small products such as socket, speaker, lighting, camera, etc., while other companies choose home appliance, for example, TV, fridge, washing machine, etc.. Some companies combine both product lines. One leading company is Haier. Smart home is the main line of Haier from 2014, and typical products are ISee mini slide projector, router, air box, GE lighting, tourniquet, smart watch, Power-tech smart socket, etc.
Then how to choose product line if would like to jump into this area? There are two direction for your reference: one is how often the product will be used, the other aspect is that it could be the entrance of smart home. During research, many products been listed, three products are over 10%, they are TV, lighting, and air conditioner. This data could be for your reference.
second stage of smart home: jointly of different products
Jointly of different products is the next stage of smart single products. Data could be transferred between different products, the pioneer is Misfit and Pebble. They change data with each other to enable end user could check Misfits data from Pebble smart watch by Misfit Pebble APP. Almost at same time, Jawbone and Nest cooperated. Jawbone UP24 smartbands, could change data with Nest Thermostat, and Nest Thermostat could adjust temperature automatically according to your sleeping status.
In China, Mecare and Bong make the same thing. Bong smartbands, Lemon scales, Cuptime smart cup could change data so that Lemon scales or Cuptime cup data could be read in Bongs app, and Bong smartbands data is visible in Mecare app.
We think that in future, data changing between different brands, different products will go further, but the data change could not go automatically. It need people to do it manually.
third stage :system smart
System smart sounds like a dream at present, but it will come one day. It is based on data changing between more and more brands & products. Furthermore, this data change will swift to automatically actions which no need end users to do it manually. For example, smartband found you are sleeping, and transfer data to smart led light bulb, then the bulb will be dimmed or turned off automatically; smart bed found that you are sweating, then the data will be transferred to air conditioner and make the air conditioner be turned on automatically.
System smart is based on perfect smart single products and data changing between different brands & products. This will need smart home products run on unified platform, and follow unified rules. Although some products use separate platform and rules, this platform and rules could be connected with big one and run smoothly. That means, for current smart home products supplier, what should to be considered is how to make your own platform to be connected with big one, and ensure data changing goes smoothly.
