2017 smart home seven major trends

The emergence of cloud computing, big data and the Internet of Things really subverted people's lives.

Since the rise of several popular technologies mentioned above, smart home appliances have frequently appeared in major media outlets. People are taking a more intelligent way of life as a "gimmick" to "erode" the market, and they are comfortable, safe and convenient. Intelligence is also the relentless pursuit of people's quality of home.

However, in the course of its development, it has experienced smooth sailing and ups and downs. Some people say that it has unlimited potential but some people say that it has nothing. In 2017, how will smart home develop? And look at the author shallow analysis.

This article will forecast industry trends from seven technical perspectives, including artificial intelligence, internet of things, biometrics, cloud computing, environmental control, digital intercom, and smart security.

artificial intelligence.

Tesla CEO Musk on Monday said that humans must be combined with the machine, or will be eliminated by artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence here how much energy, no one knows. Looking around, nowadays all walks of life are actively embracing artificial intelligence, from chess to security, service, transportation and so on, the concept can always seize any opportunity to station people's attention.

Coincidentally, after Baidu Lu Qi took office, the first fire is burning artificial intelligence, Baidu recently announced a whollyowned acquisition of artificial intelligence companies Raven technology, is committed to creating a new generation of human-computer interaction and human interaction system - ProjectFlow . Baidu acquisition Raven technology, it is around the commercial exploration of artificial intelligence has taken a positive step, after all, the artificial intelligence business landing in the industry widespread difficulties, driving is still very far away, so many manufacturers began to target the field of intelligent hardware, artificial intelligence Embedded into the smart devices to go.

If this is not enough to explain the trend of the industry, Dyson has announced that it will certainly be able to justify the development of artificial intelligence by investing a total of 412 million U.S. dollars in a new research institute in Singapore. It is reported that, in fact, Dyson had involved in the field of artificial intelligence last year, Dyson introduced PureCoolLink with this network-enabled products, the user can be informed of the current cell phone air condition and equipment operation, and replace the remote control Operate. But Dyson does not consider this to be true artificial intelligence, Dyson said. "What I expect from you is that you do not need to control your device with your phone app, but let it be automated, and your appliance automatically adjusts to your preferences To be honest, this idea of Dyson is indeed very exciting and also in line with the ultimate form of artificial intelligence in home life.

Internet of Things

The rapid development of the Internet of things greatly accelerated the popularity of smart home, no doubt.

Nowadays, in China, the development of the Internet of Things has risen to a national strategy. The government has proposed many constructive proposals to promote the rapid development of the industry. As a new industry with "little old age," smart home just catches up with this Take the windmill. As a Blue Ocean project, the smart home has unlimited prospects. All this depends on the development of the Internet of Things. From wired connection to wireless transmission, from concept to reality, the Internet of Things cleverly separates a number of seemingly unrelated All things are closely linked, and now, the object has become the lowest connected configuration, and on this basis, the major smart home manufacturers are also a go-getters, and actively research and development of various products, the industry trend of the moment.


Smart home systems with biometrics are now overtaking people's habits.

In addition to infrared security and remote monitoring, smart lock is also being accepted by more and more families, becoming an ordinary residential choice. Smart lock not only changed the way people use the key to open the door, with the fingerprint identification system password lock, so that elderly people and children who do not operate the phone APP can easily unlock. With the maturity of technology, the price of smart lock will also be lowered. Fingerprint lock convenience and security will bring very optimistic market prospects, and a new round of lock competition will also prompt the rapid development of the fingerprint lock market.

cloud computing

At present, the domestic smart home manufacturers using cloud computing technology are Haier, IoT, Haier more from the wisdom of the community to consider, and the IoT sensor is the first cloud services at home and abroad into the smart home Among the business. With cloud computing, users can not only view real-time signs of trouble in their homes, but also track down them. For example, if someone invaded home, even if the suspects escape, but also according to the sensor response time, bring out the exact time of the video recording, the police provide the basis for detection. Similarly, through the family of all kinds of smart sockets, smart switch data co-ordination analysis, we can achieve energy-saving home control, develop energy-saving environmental protection, convenient and comfortable home appliances lighting program. "In addition to providing users with large-capacity data storage space, cloud services also take on more and more key roles!

Environmental control

A lot of smart home items make people's lives more comfortable and convenient.

Renovation pollution, haze and other environmental issues are increasingly serious, people's requirements on the indoor environment also gradually increased. Consumers are more willing to try out the convenience and comfort of smart home items, which will increase the demand for intelligent air purifiers and sweeping robots, and the importance of fresh air systems will also increase significantly. Busy work and life lead to the owner can not always monitor the indoor environmental conditions, if the environmental control to the intelligent level, the smart home system can automatically sense and monitor the indoor temperature, humidity, air quality, and make the appropriate adjustments, Will be more popular with consumers.

Digital intercom

In the foreseeable future, building intercom will be more to increase the function of some smart home, will be set security, home appliance control, information services, entertainment as a whole, making the building intercom system a qualitative change, the two will be even more Closely together. Unlike pure analog systems, digital / analog hybrid systems use less expensive analog devices within the cell, while backbone networks use the Ethernet-based digital TCP / IP protocol for networking. Digital / analog hybrid systems are one of the most economical and effective ways to solve large-scale community networking.

Intelligent security

In recent years, especially in the United States, smart security has replaced and subverted the trend of traditional security. In the past, cameras were only monitoring our existence. However, there are many intelligent security products on the market. For example, Of the smart camera, in addition to the traditional camera, night vision, monitoring capabilities, but also an additional voice interaction features integrated products, more feature-rich, more powerful, a product brings to address multiple needs and a variety of The product experience of multiple needs is completely different. The same is true for the Tooter smart box at Tooter E, which combines infrared security, air detection and smoke alarm. It not only controls the whole family's household appliances, but also realizes environmental monitoring. It monitors the temperature and humidity in the room in real time, PM2.5, VOC Harmful gases) and noise intensity to detect, but also infrared detection indoor human activity, in the event of outsiders, gas leaks, fire and other immediate alarm. As can be seen, with the development of technology and the popularization of smart home, the trend of home security and smart hardware integration has gradually taken shape.

Sum up

Nowadays, the market scale of China's smart home industry will show a trend of rapid growth in the coming years. By 2021, it will exceed 290 billion yuan and the huge "cake" of smart home has become the focus of attention of all parties. As a smart home business, should be highly integrated industrial chain, coordinated development, cooperation and win-win situation. Therefore, by the above author on the seven smart home trends in 2017, I hope relevant people can get some development inspiration.
