Lu Shenshi Co Organized the "golden Sunflower" Award to Open the Research and Visit Activities of Sm

The "sunflower Award" in 2020, known as the "Oscar" of the smart home session, was officially opened. The selection was sponsored by China Construction Expo and China Construction Expo sunflower award selection committee, jointly sponsored by Netease home, jianbo.com, smart home innovation and development and technical standards industry alliance, Guangdong home building materials chamber of Commerce, and co sponsored by Lu Shenshi.

The intelligent door lock industry is developing in full swing, and a safer and more convenient identification technology has become the direction that every manufacturer is exploring. Lu Shenshi, who has successful landing experience in the field of border inspection and security, injects 3D full stack technology into consumer products. From algorithm to hardware, true 3D runs through all processes, providing a more accurate, convenient and smooth identification experience. Based on the development of smart door locks, Lu Shenshi and the organizers of the "sunflower Award" hit it off and participated in the fourth "sunflower Award" smart home selection activity in 2020.

The smart home research team opened a visit on May 20 to deeply investigate smart home enterprises. As a co sponsor, Lu Shenshi had full exchanges with a number of smart home enterprises in the field of smart door locks.

The "sunflower Award" came into being with the China Construction Expo to create the "first" exhibition of China's intelligent lock, and became a blockbuster in China Construction Expo (Guangzhou) in 2017. In 2019, the "sunflower Award" was upgraded to the smart home selection, including Huawei, Haier, yunmi, LVMI, anjubo, graffiti, HDL, Guanlin, Aite, kaidishi, deshman, Luke, hybas, fluorite, Wang Li, VOC, Asia Pacific Tianneng, Mingmen, Zhijia, Zhongheng, Haolish, Philips, airbar, dormakaba, haoyidian Olante and other major smart home brands at home and abroad participated.

After three years of operation, the "sunflower Award" has become the highest Gold Award in the smart home industry. The smart home products such as smart lock, smart hardware system, smart door and smart clothes dryer won the "sunflower Award" represent the highest level in the smart home industry from appearance design, safety quality to scientific and technological innovation.

Artificial intelligence technology helps smart home enter the fast lane of development

In recent years, driven by AI, big data, 5g and other technologies, smart home has developed rapidly and steadily, the categories are gradually enriched, the market is expanding rapidly, and the smart home industry has entered the fast lane of development. With the advent of 5g era, technology will shape a new life in the future and inject new power into the development of smart home. At the same time, home manufacturers have embarked on the smart track to explore a variety of application scenarios of artificial intelligence technology in smart home, and seek ways for artificial intelligence technology to enable home products to realize product transformation and upgrading.

The smart home research of China Jianbo sunflower award visited a number of traditional door lock manufacturers, smart door lock manufacturers, algorithm research manufacturers and supply chain service manufacturers, covering the whole industry chain of algorithm, technology and hardware. Many enterprises spoke together to explore the development path of smart door lock. At the same time, it also provides a bridge for enterprises in the industrial chain, helps business development and promotes the progress of intelligent door lock technology.

Three dimensional machine vision has been widely applied in frontier inspection, security and other sophisticated fields, and began to empower consumer products to help upgrade the security industry. As a part of the security field, the security of intelligent door lock is particularly important. Integrating three-dimensional machine vision technology into intelligent door lock products has become a major technical trend. It is worth mentioning that during this visit, many enterprises expressed great interest in Lu Shenshi's 3D face recognition door lock scheme.

3D machine vision technology is the first choice for adult face recognition

Nowadays, with the development of artificial intelligence technology, the field of intelligent door lock has entered a fast iterative track. From password lock to fingerprint lock, and then to face recognition lock, the convenience is getting higher and higher, but at the same time, it also poses a great challenge to security. Passwords can be leaked, fingerprints can be copied, but faces are unique. How to accurately and quickly recognize the face and make counterfeiting attacks with high efficiency and low block has become the key problem to be considered in face recognition.

At present, two-dimensional technology is widely used in the field of face recognition, but the products based on two-dimensional technology are insufficient in reliability, accuracy, security and robustness, and are vulnerable to low-cost attack means and greatly affected by light, so they can not effectively meet the demand.

Because 3D machine vision technology has one more dimension of information than 2D, it can not only expand the application scope of 2D, but also complete the "pain point application" that 2D can not do. At the same time, compared with the traditional two-dimensional vision, three-dimensional machine vision technology has the advantage of high security level anti-counterfeiting, and can resist a variety of attack means such as photos, masks, head models and so on.

Lu Shenshi intelligent door lock scheme is based on the front-end low-power embedded platform, which can realize non-contact, senseless and accurate recognition. Based on the principle of structured light, the scheme can restore the high-precision 3D detail information of the face, accurately identify the person's identity through the three-dimensional size information of the face, and the recognition accuracy of two-dimensional and three-dimensional attacks is as high as 99.99%.

In terms of security, its algorithm has met the financial payment level security and can realize high-strength anti-counterfeiting.

For the scale of a small face database of 100 people in the scenario of intelligent door lock, the first hit pass rate reaches more than 97% when the error recognition rate is one millionth in the case of 1:100, which is equivalent to more than 97% when the error recognition rate is one millionth in the case of 1:1. It is in a leading position in milliwatt low-power front-end applications.

In addition, taking advantage of the richness of 3D data, the scheme can achieve a good use experience in backlight, dark light and large angle. It is less disturbed by light, and can be used normally indoors, outdoors, day and night. It is suitable for all kinds of environments.

With the launch of the fourth "sunflower Award" smart home selection in 2020, the China Jianbo sunflower award smart home research team took the lead in the "sunflower Award" in 2020 to conduct a comprehensive investigation of smart home enterprises and present a more complete and real industry picture to the public.

The fourth "sunflower Award" smart home selection and award ceremony co organized by Lu Shenshi will be held at the Guangzhou Construction Expo in July 2020. At the same time, the collection of award-winning products of "sunflower Award" smart home will appear and settle in the "sunflower Award" exhibition area of Guangzhou Construction Expo. The popularity of the exhibition continues to explode the popularity of "sunflower Award".

With the Advent of the Wave of Artificial Intelligence, Smart Home Is No Longer an Empty Talk
Speaking of smart home, its historical development can be traced back to the early 1980s, when a large number of home appliances using electronic technology appeared on the market. It is this period that electronic housing entered thousands of households. In the late 1980s, thanks to the development of communication and information technology, control and management systems came into being, connecting these devices through the network, which was also called smart home at that time, that is, the prototype of today's popular smart home.Looking back a few years ago, at the time when intelligent hardware had just begun, this concept was once again in full swing. In the end, the single product function and ecological dispersion not only did not bring practical improvement to users, but also added a lot of trouble. For example, using an app to adjust the light is not as refreshing as using a manual switch. In the end, most products have no trace after only rubbing a wave of heat.Today, with the continuous breakthrough in the application of AI technology, all walks of life are trying to complete a new round of transformation with the help of AI. Back to the field of smart home, the hardware represented by voice interactive terminal is gradually benefiting every family. It is not difficult to see that the rise of artificial intelligence has brought new vitality to this field, and smart home is no longer an empty talk.Smart home in the eyes of consumersAfter talking a lot, the final analysis is that the era of smart home is getting closer and closer to us. But for consumers, they will never pay too much attention to the trend of the whole industry. What they pay attention to is what kind of experience smart home can bring and their expectations for smart home.For this reason, tianji.com interviewed three female users with low it level to understand their yearning for smart home:A: A is a person who never gets out of bed on weekends. Her appeal during the day is to be able to control lights, curtains and TV in bed. It is better to have a night light when she gets up at night. Other intelligent devices can control it if they can control it. If they can't control it, they can make do with the remote control;B: B is a girl who likes to dress up. Her dream life is to have a magic mirror. This magic mirror can not only give her facial skin relevant guidance, but also help her virtual try on all kinds of clothes in line with her body shape. If there are plastic guidance and other relevant value-added services, it is better;C: C's answer is more concise. If the smart home can't make it feel intimate and warm, she would rather choose a residence with a sense of design than a sense of technology.This result seems to deviate from our expectations. Whether curtains, TV, or magic mirrors, are some elements already covered in the original home decoration design, but this time consumers hope to carry out a new intelligent upgrade for these inherent elements, followed by the demands for new categories. No one mentioned the big villa of Bill Gates, nor the one where Fage lived in Macao. This can't help but make us reflect on which link is wrong with the landing of smart home?Less imagination, more linkageOf course, this does not mean that smart home is a false proposition, but at present, the education level of the overall smart home market is not enough, and users just need to be found accurately.In the final analysis, what users need is scene linkage that meets daily needs, not meaningless linkage. For example, if a player who likes playing wechat games can convert the wechat steps or the data on the treadmill into physical strength in the game, the value of this linkage cannot be quantified. However, if only the rice cooker is linked with the app, whether such linkage is necessary remains to be discussed. After all, after washing rice, users can easily press the cooking button.Secondly, it is the "pull-up" linkage that many Internet companies like to do most. For example, a few years ago, some manufacturers imagined several kinds of linkage. One is that in the hot summer, the air conditioner will turn on automatically on the way home or as soon as you enter the house. Second, every morning, before you go out, your car has stopped at the door of the building to wait.It seems like a beautiful life, but I always feel that there is something wrong with the application. The first scene is inappropriate because most people will not sit on the sofa and bed in the sweat, especially in the dog days. The first thing most people do after entering the door is to take a bath. During the bath, they have enough time to turn on the air conditioner to lower the room temperature. In the second scenario, there are more physical constraints to consider...Looking back, if we put the second scene in Bill Gates's smart villa, the logic will become much smoother. However, smart home will serve every family in the future. Being tall will only give people the feeling of "floating in the sky", but will be farther and farther away from their audience. Therefore, less imagination and more meaningful linkage are the foundation of smart home landing.Think rationally about how enterprises adapt to the development of the timesAt present, with the popularity of AI, manufacturing, service and other industries have ushered in a new transformation and upgrading. In this wave, smart home belongs to a special existence.Why do we say that, taking the manufacturing industry as an example, as long as the manufacturing industry has a set of standardized processes with all parameters meeting the requirements, it can realize the production of precision parts. However, the core of smart home lies in the family. In this perceptual scene, standardized things can no longer meet the exquisite life expected by consumers. Therefore, it is really powerless to rely on technology without temperature to solve the needs in a perceptual scene, which is one of the biggest challenges facing enterprises at present.However, opportunities and challenges coexist. What excites enterprises is that they are in a huge market with unprecedented scale. According to statista's conservative prediction, the market scale will reach US $79.3 billion in 2021. Therefore, there are still many problems for enterprises to think about how to gain a firm foothold in this market.From small to large, the first is the problem of brand recognition. At present, the education of mobile phones and speakers is relatively perfect. When referring to mate and Galaxy series products, the selling points of this product can immediately emerge in the minds of users. But if I mention gr-p2279ers... You have no idea what it is. Therefore, in the era of smart home, enterprises need to make efforts in all links from product planning to market education. After all, who can stand out in many categories, who can stand more stable in this market.Moreover, at the turning point of this era, enterprises should also consider whether to adopt the "one size fits all" strategy for the past product lines, especially for the medium and high-end product lines of home appliance enterprises. The renewal cycle of such products is long. If the past products are left behind, the impact on users and brands is also an urgent problem for enterprises to consider.Finally, we should also consider the types and quantities of products that can be linked, that is, the ecology. At present, domestic and foreign giants are expanding their ecology, and the contact between home appliances and technology giants will become closer in the future. For enterprises, how to realize the interconnection of cross ecological platforms, solve the island problem between platforms, and improve the interactive experience of the whole linkage scene is the fundamental to peep into the truth of the era of smart home.
These Smart Home Appliance Safety Knowledge Is Worth Knowing
With the continuous development of the Internet of things and intelligent terminals, more and more devices are intelligent. In the next few years, more household appliances will enter the intelligent era. Intelligent household appliances based on application technologies such as digitization, three networks integration, Internet of things, big data and cloud computing will be the backbone of information consumption.We will introduce the security of smart appliances from the following aspects:1) Agreement on domestic smart appliances2) Intelligent home appliance network topology3) Security attack and defense of smart appliances4) Security reinforcement of smart appliancesWhat is smart appliances?Smart home appliances are home appliances formed after the introduction of microprocessor, sensor technology and network communication technology into home appliances. They can automatically sense the state of residential space, the state of home appliances and the service state of home appliances, and can automatically control and receive the control instructions of residential users in the house or far away; At the same time, as an integral part of smart home, smart home appliances can interconnect with other home appliances, home appliances and facilities in the house to form a system to realize the function of smart home.Ranking of China's top 10 home appliance brands in 2015Main control methods of intelligent appliances1) LAN is controlled through Wi Fi;Smart TVs with Android operating system generally use Wi Fi for control, and few can be controlled remotely. Smart TV itself needs the ability to connect to the Internet, and Wi Fi control is its best choice. And because there is no need for remote control, the permission is controlled in the LAN.2) Cloud intelligent remote control;The equipment requiring remote control mainly includes cameras, washing machines, rice cookers, etc.3) Control via Bluetooth;The networked device system is relatively complex. Some devices do not need remote control, and there is no need to connect to the Internet. At this time, Bluetooth control is usually selected. Smart light bulb, sound, etc4) ZigBee controlZigBee is translated as "purple bee", which is similar to Bluetooth. It is a new short-range wireless communication technology for sensing and control applications.5) Xiaomi smart socket (ZigBee version) and Xiaomi gateway have joined ZigBee control.
Hardware Will Continue to Drive the Growth of Smart Home Market in the next Five Years
It is reported that the 2016 international consumer electronics exhibition displayed a large number of smart home devices, highlighting the growth and potential of this market. As the infrastructure and service products developed in the past few years have laid a solid foundation for the popularization of smart home devices, the sales of smart home devices will nearly double in the next 12 months. Although hardware will continue to drive the growth of the smart home market in the next five years, the transformation to regular services is already "in progress". According to market research firm ABI research, by 2020, the proportion of recurring services in the revenue of smart home market will increase from less than 20% to nearly 25%.Driving the transformation to regular services is the continuous popularity of manageable smart home systems from many manufacturers, including home security, telecommunications and cable TV, and retailers. Manufacturers that have launched such systems include ADT, vivint, at & T, Deutsche Telekom, Comcast, Lowes and staples. In addition, the new generation of self-service installation equipment and systems from start-ups and technology giants such as Google and Samsung have also promoted the growth of recurrent services, including data collection and storage.Jonathan Collins, chief analyst of ABI research, said, "As smart home functions continue to enter new homes, manufacturers will benefit from the initial sales revenue of equipment and systems, but their goal is to convert the sales of equipment and systems into services that can bring regular revenue. Similar to traditional home security services, the purpose of manageable smart home system pricing is to win new customers with low-cost equipment, so as to bring long-term regular revenue Sexual income. "DIGITIMES said that although security manufacturers are currently the leader in the market of manageable smart home systems, telecom / cable TV companies and retailers will take a share in the market by 2020. These manageable service providers will smoothly transform the users installed by DIY into their users' ability, which will become an important way for regular service growth.
Where Is the Nerve of Smart Home
In a perfect digital home in the future, it will reflect the comprehensive integration of various current high technologies. To form an intelligent family in a real sense, it must be the intersection of technologies of various disciplines. Therefore, in order to build a real functional home, it needs the support of multiple industries and manufacturers.Smart home system mainly includes the following computer software technology, computer network technology, computer password technology, "plug and play" technology, image processing technology and sensor technology.Computer software technologyThe computer software involved in the digital home network, in addition to the general user program, highlights two aspects: the first is the network operating system, which should have the characteristics of small memory, convenient use, flexible configuration and good fault-tolerant performance; The second is the data structure. This is because it is impossible to use various huge databases in the general home control network, and a large amount of data needs to be processed in actual use. Therefore, designers need to design a database suitable for home network.Computer network technologyWhat is more prominent here is the home gateway, such as connection with the Internet or Ethernet, route selection, browser design, web page production, as well as coding and compression technology and network interface technology.Computer cryptographyThe networking of digital home network with the outside world has brought great convenience to users. But it has its advantages and disadvantages. Uninvited guests such as "hackers" will also come uninvited. In order to protect the rights and privacy of users from infringement, irrelevant persons cannot be allowed to break into the private home network. One of the solutions is to use various encryption / decryption technologies."Plug and play" technologyThis is a special technology required in the home network, that is, the network is required to automatically "feel" and "identify" new household appliances / devices connected to the Internet, and can control and monitor them. To complete this function, not only the household appliances / equipment should be changed (corresponding interfaces should be added), but also the network operating system should have such ability. In order to realize this function, firstly, standardize / standardize the interface protocol and equipment files. Secondly, the network operating system should have complete protocols. Finally, the controller (such as remote controller) should be able to automatically reorganize the system control logic. Therefore, it is not easy to realize this function. At present, there is no standardized and mature scheme abroad.image processing techniques Image processing technology is a high-level technology in information technology. At present, it has also entered the digital family. A typical example is the intelligent anti-theft door. This kind of anti-theft door does not need an ordinary key. Its "key" is an organ feature of each person in the family: for example, finger fingerprint, close-up of human face, iris in eyes, etc. These human body's own characteristics first need to be collected by some special devices, then the collected image information needs to be processed, and the corresponding required features are extracted. Finally, according to these features, we can identify "whether they are members of our home".In such a system, the key and important technology is to quickly process the collected information and extract enough features to make correct recognition in the shortest possible time, which is one of the core technologies in image processing.sensor technology In a digital family, in order to ensure perfect control, there are a variety of physical quantities to be measured (such as flow, electricity, temperature, humidity, trace gas content, etc.), which all require sensor technology. Generally speaking, the measurement accuracy of physical quantities in the family is not high, and the volume and weight of measurement equipment are not strict. Therefore, it is also necessary to research and develop low-cost, stable, reliable and multi-functional integrated measurement technology, sensor technology and corresponding products for home network control.
Smart Home Ecology Has Brought Unprecedented Challenges and Opportunities
Manufacturers that can make a difference in the field of smart speakers will, without exception, make great efforts in the smart home ecology, which has brought unprecedented challenges and opportunities to the Pan home appliance industry that has been on the traditional road.Here comes the wolf?In the past five years, there has been a subsidy war in the smart speaker market, which has overwhelmed a number of small manufacturers. Ali, Baidu and Xiaomi, which have sufficient funds, stand out and become recognized as the three giants in the domestic industry. Among them, tmall elf occupies the top position, with a global shipment of 3.9 million in the third quarter of 2019.Moreover, more and more giants are stepping up their catch-up. Huawei has established a smart home strategy with "entrance connection ecology" as the core from the beginning.Specifically, with AI speakers, smart screens, routers and smart phones as the entrance and hilink platform as the core, build a smart home ecosystem, and comprehensively cut in from the perspectives of entrance, connection and ecology to create a full scene intelligent experience for consumers.For example, Huawei's first AI speaker launched in 2019 has so far supported the control of many single products of Huawei intelligent selection and Huawei hilink ecological products, including air conditioner, lighting, curtain, air purifier, fan, socket / plug, water heater, clothes hanger, air sensor, security, humidifier, floor sweeping robot, etc.Users can also customize home life scenes, such as home, away from home, sleep, reading and other modes. They can always experience the convenience of intelligent life by adding corresponding household appliances and calling Xiaoyi.The most attractive thing is that the three digit price is very close to the people, so that intelligence is no longer far away from the people.In other words, whether it is the head team of smart speakers or backward giants, what they care most is that smart speakers will become the first control center of smart home and the central platform of family life in the long run. That's the original intention.This also means that if smart homes are controlled by these "outsiders", home manufacturers will face at least two threats:1、 Batch reduced to an alternative "agent factory". When a large number of entrances are controlled, home appliance manufacturers have to actively or passively cooperate with smart manufacturers, or make profits, or weaken their own brand strength.2、 The original market was "robbed". Smart manufacturers have pushed their own brands of smart TVs, smart door locks, smart clothes racks, etc., and quickly grabbed the market with the popularity of Xiaomi, Huawei and Baidu, causing a greater and greater impact on traditional home appliance manufacturers.No wonder the home appliance industry will shout "the wolf is coming".False proposition?Smart home seems lively and huge. In fact, it is still far from the goal.Because, whether Xiaomi or Huawei, more and more companies have realized that the interconnection of equipment is a problem; Seamless interconnection of equipment is another problem; The third problem is to achieve a seamless experience acceptable to consumers.The "cooperation that can be seamlessly connected with XX air conditioner and XX TV" blown by those smart speaker enterprises is mostly "miserable" and the effect is very bony.From downloading various apps, to figuring out the control mode of the remote control (RF and infrared), to confirming whether the category and model of electrical appliances are compatible, and even breaking the router for a while... The time and cost to solve the problems in these links is several times that you can complete the task of "pulling the curtain" with your hands."At present, no smart home company is successful. On the surface, Xiaomi is more 'successful', but this success does not create new value, but uses the concept of intelligence to eat traditional industries." a smart home analyst said that the viewpoint of Internet companies that do the Internet of things is problematic. They think that the Internet extends and it is OK to get the data, Violent and ineffective."Even if they achieve the first sales of TV, table lamp and TV, many users will not use smart functions. From the perspective of smart home, they do not create new value, but only the victory of business operation, which has no longer long-term value."Therefore, the key to the dispute over the entrance of the Internet of things is not to "find the entrance", nor to fight for life and death from the sales and market levels, or to put a Starbucks co branded shell on the smart speakerBut how to chain all the wooden boats on the lake, so as to open a new situation with a fire.Only one party's openness and one party's leading ecology will never allow users to complete cognitive upgrading at the experience end, and it will never really open the smart home market.Just a dozen days ago, Amazon, Google and apple made an admirable move to promote the development of animal networking.As the leading enterprises in the global smart home market, they are each other's biggest competitors, but they also know that the incompatible and chaotic network standard behind the Internet of things - a brand microwave oven in Amazon ecology cannot "respond" to Google home.Therefore, they decided to jointly develop an open source network standard to make it easier for IOT hardware suppliers and software developers to realize the interconnection of devices based on "home" through IP (Internet Protocol) connection, making it possible to communicate between smart home devices, mobile applications and cloud services.Only by making these people relaxed can they make us relaxed.At present, this strange alliance is trying to find common ground of open source for new network standards. Their approach is particularly similar to the success of open source software in the first decade of this century.In any case, they see a longer-term benefit - by using open source software to make smart home devices work safely and seamlessly, they have always attracted more software and hardware developers; More supporters will bring a larger market for their equipment and services.When this "separation and integration" from the inside and outside is really realized, it is the time for traditional household appliances people to really worry!And this day, according to the law, is not far away.
How to Move Your Smart Home Devices
How to Move Your Smart Home DevicesYou've created your ideal smart home with a collection of connected gadgets that save you energy, offer great conveniences, and keep your home safe and secure - but now you are moving. What are you going to do? We will look at what to take with you when you move and what you might want to leave behind, plus some new gadgets to consider for your new home. Should it Stay, or Should it Go? If you are selling your home, bear in mind that buyers are increasingly interested in smart home devices. According to a survey by Coldwell Banker, 44 percent expect these devices in their new home. By leaving them in place, you could get a better price for your house and save yourself the headache of moving them. Consider conveying your connected gadgets, such as smart thermostats, smart lighting, and a smart security system, with the sale of the home. Conveyable items also include anything that is hardwired into the house or installed in the walls, doors, or windows, such as: If you want to take any of these devices with you, you will need to replace them with alternatives, ideally before putting the house up for sale. If you decide to leave them, remember to reset each device to its factory settings before you go. The manufacturer's instructions can show you how to do this. In most cases, you will need physical access to the device, so do not wait until you've left. You will also want to remove the device from any app you use to control it. One option that can help your home's new owner is to create an email address for your home and register all the devices using that email address after you factory reset them. Give the new owner the password for that account when you hand over the keys, and they can then change the password, download the apps, and have full control over the home's gadgets. Take It With You Some devices will be easier to take with you than others. For example, smart speakers can be unplugged, packed away, and then plugged in when you move into your new home. But for devices that connect to a smart home hub and rely on triggers from other gadgets to work, such as smart light bulbs that turn on when you open your front door or a smart security system, simply uninstalling it and reinstalling in your new home may not be the best option. First, consider how you will be using the device in your new home. If you know you will be using it in the same way, pack it away, and carefully label everything with the room it will be going into. Once you've moved, unpack and reinstall it in your new home. If you are not sure, or know that it will be used differently, the best option is to factory reset these devices and set them up as new when you arrive at your new home. Factory resetting should be done before you move, as the device needs to be connected to the internet and its companion app to complete this. Refer to each product's manufacturer guidelines for resetting and remember to label all the parts carefully when you pack it. This might seem labor-intensive, but it's always easier to set up smart home devices as new than it is to try and reconfigure them. A good internet connection is a crucial element of a smart home, so the first thing you should do in your new home - before you reinstall any devices - is hook up your internet modem and router. If you are bringing your old one with you, make sure to use the same network name and password, so all your devices seamlessly reconnect. If you are using a new internet provider or modem and router, ask the installer to use your old network name and password with the system, so you wo not have to reconnect everything manually. Moving into a new home is a great time to think about what new smart devices might be important to you. The top five recommendations for smart devices in a home are smart lighting, a video doorbell paired with a smart door lock, a smart thermostat, and a smart security system. With these devices in place, you will have a robust smart home that can help you settle into your new life happily and safely.

Can Halow Technology Become the First Choice for Smart Home Communication
On January 4, 2015, the WiFi alliance released a new low-power WiFi technology, halow, and claimed that this technology is very suitable for smart home. Halow's frequency band is 900MHz, which has lower power consumption, stronger wall penetration ability and longer coverage distance compared with the previous 2.4G and 5g WiFi. This technology greatly expands the application scenarios of WiFi, covering from portable wearable products to smart home, Internet of vehicles, smart city, industrial facility layout and other application scenarios with high power consumption requirements. Does this mean that the strategy in the WiFi layout smart home is to use halow for transmitting small data information such as control signals, while transmitting big data such as audio and video is naturally 5g WiFi.Whether halow can help WiFi become the first choice for smart home connection, we look at it from two levels.First, from a technical point of view, can we solve the pain points of home wireless connection:1. Dialogue between different communication systemsIn the Chinese market, ZigBee, WiFi and 433M are all competing for the "air control" of smart home control. Of course, these three wireless technologies are only the most mentioned and debated at present, not the standards defined by various companies in the 2.4G or 433M frequency band. The numerous connection standards not only do not increase the convenience of smart home control, but also increase the difficulty of interconnection between devices and between devices and gateways. In order to make various devices in the home interconnected, Qualcomm launched its allsee platform and Huawei launched the hilink connection protocol. These companies are working with partners to build a smart home ecosystem. No one can be sure what kind of technology or platform can put a banner of victory in the smart home battlefield.2. Fast transmission of large data stream and stable transmission of high-frequency micro dataThe reason why WiFi can achieve a unique position in the wireless transmission of audio and video in the consumer field is that on the one hand, its bandwidth meets the needs of big data transmission, and on the other hand, its layout has been completed before a large number of audio and video applications are popularized. The early development of WiFi technology was mainly aimed at mobile office applications of laptops. It was not expected that the outbreak of consumer products such as smartphones and tablets would bring a great impetus to it. Fast big data transmission is no problem for WiFi, which has been verified in the consumer market. In terms of small data transmission, it is reported that halow is not suitable for fast data transmission, such as browsing the web, but it is more suitable for high-frequency micro data transmission. What is the actual situation? Well, it needs to be verified.3. Power consumption and endurance of equipmentBecause increasing the communication function will bring additional energy consumption to household appliances and other equipment, it is very important for the equipment powered by power supply, especially foreign household appliances, how to minimize the power consumption to meet the national energy consumption standard requirements for equipment. At the same time, for the built-in battery powered equipment, the requirements for power consumption are more stringent. Halow makes up for the short board with large power consumption and short distance of existing WiFi Technology (which is also the main reason for its limitation in home control), making WiFi a wireless standard that can also transmit low-power micro data. However, the low-power performance of ZigBee, ble, enocean and other communication protocols is also significant. There is no specific data on how low-power halow can achieve.Secondly, from the point of time, can the popularity of devices integrated with halow catch up with the outbreak of smart home?If you want WiFi devices with different frequency bands to communicate with each other, the routing products in the network center must integrate WiFi modules compatible with 2.4G, 5g and 900m. From the development of 5g WiFi, it took about two or three years from the launch of the protocol to product popularization, so the popularization time of products compatible with three frequencies should be similar to or less than the above time. Regardless of the increased cost and technical difficulty, just from the point of time, if the launch of such products is ahead of the outbreak of smart home, the success of WiFi ecology may be more guaranteed. However, if the smart home market has exploded within this time, and a platform is compatible with all mainstream wireless modes (such as ZigBee, ble and WiFi) on the upper layer through routers / gateways and other products, halow will be "chicken ribs".In fact, for users, which wireless protocol and transmission mode in smart home is not important. Good experience, high security and stability are the key to impress users. Although smart home has been developed for more than 20 years, there is no such concept for many domestic consumers. To popularize smart home, we must let the public accept this concept, and be able to afford, use well and use value. This is the main thing. If you want to use it well and value it, you will experience it well. If you want to experience it well, the "dialogue" (Communication) between people and things, things and things needs to be convenient and smooth. Whoever can do this well will have a place.
What Tesla and Apple Got Right for IoT Products
Many companies embracing the IoT connected product movement are doing it without fully understanding the possibilities. When asking developers, product managers, and CxO’s why they want to have a connected product, the focus is often on a few of the possibilities: remote control, analytics, diagnostics, etc. However, there is one key point to consider that doesn’t require additional lead time, will reduce work in the future, and is the source of most connected product success.Connected product functionality is really about reliable and secure device management. Both Apple and Tesla have gotten it right. Product manufacturers can follow there lead with the following two key points.Design for future functionalityLimiting imagination in the early days of product specifications can quickly constrain a product’s flexibility in the future. I am not saying to do everything all at once, but I am saying that considering device management as the first phase of connected product design can unleash functionality that otherwise would be missed or would require retroactive work once needed.By taking inspiration from companies such as Tesla or Apple and by designing a product with device management in mind, companies can add new and powerful features to their product as customers demand them or as engineering develops them.Through thoughtful device management, Apple and Tesla enable new business models that create recurring revenue; beyond the phone, Apple picks up additional dollars every week through their subscribers in music, videos and app sales. Each phone receives the right app, the right upgrade version, etc. Tesla has been stuffing their vehicles with data-gathering sensors that customers don’t have access to today, but through those sensors and device management, the data they collect could eventually be made available through annual subscriptions. If Tesla suddenly offered Ludicrous Mode or auto pilot on an annual subscription, people could upgrade their standard model vehicle anytime, without having to wait for the next version of the product. This same concept should be considered when initially designing your connected product.2. Protect your brandDevice management forms a direct relationship between the developer and the customer that previously required a distributor as a ‘middle man’ for most revenue expansion opportunities. But this also puts your brand in the limelight and therefore requires utmost attention to security to avoid risk. Security isn’t just about encrypting data packets, it’s about ensuring the two ends of the link are validated, authenticated and authorized. It’s about ensuring that the firmware and licenses delivered to a device are enabled for only that one single device. Device management is tough; it has to be robust since manually power cycling a sensor on the other side of the world isn’t as straight forward as it is when you are next to the device.It doesn’t take much to include device management capabilities in your first connected product, particularly if your selected IoT platform embeds it in the operating system. But thinking about this early on can make a world of difference! Whichever platform you choose, try to take a test drive. Zentri has a series of workshops available in Oct and Nov in partnership with IBM and Avnet to get you working on an end-to-end IoT platform experience from development to management to cloud service analysis.

The range is extensive and might include:Multi-room music systemsSmart fire & smoke detectorsSmart flood detectorsWiFi networksSmart window dressings controlSmart thermostatsSmart lighting controlSmart security alarm systemsAnd so on………After you have decided what to sell; you’ll also need to a unique selling proposition (USP) and should be specific to a particular target base of customers.For instance; some electrical contractors and alarm companies are marketing their services to people over 65, who require smart home products to improve their quality of life
Apple Joins the Standards Organization to Compete with Amazon and Google in Smart Home
Smart home is growing rapidly in the United States. Due to many factors such as the living environment of American families and the strong DIY ability of American users, the demand for smart cameras, smart temperature control, smart lighting, smart door locks and smart speakers is increasing sharply. Especially under the mode of combining artificial intelligence assistants and smart speakers, the American smart home market is further activated. Relevant data show that, As early as last year, the penetration rate of smart home in the United States was as high as 58%.Apple is the first mobile phone manufacturer to invade the smart home field. According to Yang Jianyong, a senior person in the Internet of things, Apple launched the homekit smart home platform in 2014. By accessing third-party smart devices and using smart terminals such as iPhone, it can control all devices in the home scene. However, apple did not reap this wave of dividends. On the contrary, Amazon products and services entered tens of millions of families. According to the data, the cumulative number of smart speakers in the United States alone was as high as 50 million, becoming a popular consumer electronic product at present. Amazon smart speakers firmly occupied 70% of the market share and became the biggest winner because Amazon echo was successful in the U.S. market, Therefore, smart speakers have become the standard hardware of several major American technology giants.From the perspective of the competition pattern in the United States, Amazon and Google are far ahead of other competitors, and their operation modes are roughly the same. Only because Amazon echo / Alexa entered the market earlier and seized most of the share, Google, as a timely follow-up, also gained 24% of the market share in the United States. They almost monopolize the U.S. market, leaving few opportunities for latecomers, Including Microsoft and Harman Caton's cooperation in launching the invoke smart speaker equipped with Cortana voice assistant, we haven't heard much news. Even apple, which has a strong brand, doesn't have ideal shipments of homepod smart speakers.Obviously, apple lags too far behind in this competition and is a catcher. However, because Apple has a strong brand appeal in the world and has more than one billion fruit powder, it is regarded as the strongest competitor of Amazon and Google. With the official launch of Apple's homepod smart speaker this year, it has achieved a sales of 3 million units in the United States, This data comes from CIRP, a market research organization.However, in the battle among the three giants over smart speakers, artificial intelligence voice assistant and ecological resources have become the key. Amazon has Amazon Alexa, Google has Google assistant and apple has Siri. However, Siri's IQ has been criticized and is inferior to its competitors. In particular, Amazon is highly praised in Amazon Alexa. Nearly half of potential smart home buyers mainly consider whether they are compatible with Amazon echo / Alexa. Major equipment manufacturers around the world also embed and support Amazon Alexa to enhance their global market competitiveness with the help of Amazon ecology.In the smart home competition, apple doesn't seem to have much time left. Although Apple has a good strategy, such as the combination of homekit homepod Apple TV Siri, and IOS has its own smart home entrance, as well as more than 1 billion user groups around the world, fruit powder uses the iPhone's own home entrance, or Siri can control various smart devices in the home. However, in the extremely fierce dispute over the entrance of smart home, Apple's process is slow, and the number of smart hardware joining Apple's smart home ecology is not large, which restricts apple.Now, in order to promote the progress of its smart home, Apple has joined the industry standard organization thread group (thread group), which was founded under the leadership of nest under Google, including arm, NXP and Samsung. Thread aims to establish a safe and reliable protocol for home Internet of things devices, and also attracts the participation of Qualcomm, Amazon and other companies, Jointly promote the development of animal networking industry.Apple joined the thread group. Obviously, in order to promote the development of homekit smart home platform, make it easier for more device manufacturers to join homekit ecology, and promote Apple's smart home strategy, Amazon has invaded many American families. With apple joining the Internet of things industry organization, although it can improve its smart home competitiveness, But it is still difficult to counter attack Amazon and apple in the battle for smart speakers. After all, when most users buy smart home products, they prefer Amazon and Google ecology. Secondly, the high price of homepod is also hard injury. Maybe cook can place his hopes on Chinese fruit powder.
