The sensor for Edyn plants – a component of an ecosystem of the smart house

In 2015 at an exhibition so much household equipment was provided that practically all showroom was similar to one smart house. The output arose by itself: connected home, house automation – any more not a concept. It is reality.

The provided developments pursue two absolutely accurate aims. The first is a simplification of everyday life, and the second – automation of routine house processes. Why to wait until the washing machine completes washing before beginning following? The new washing machine erases for two. You do not manage to water house plants in time? The special application and the smart flowerpot made under it will remove this problem. Even it is possible to zakipyatit water for tea so elaborately now what you wonder – as you could listen to whistle of a teapot on a plate all these years?

Interesting smart products was valid much, we selected a little. The market of smart houses – rather new therefore it is interesting to observe the one who as a result will capture attention of consumers. And, of course, there is open a question whether consumers want to automate the houses or not.

As a result time for washing is saved twice because it is at the same time possible to erase two loadings.

The Netatmo Welcome camera this year was awarded sets of reviews and references everywhere where it is only possible. And all only because it is supplied with system of facial recognition and can always answer the question "Who Houses". She helps to monitor children, and also is useful in security systems.

Smart ventilation

The Keen company added automation there where and not at once you will guess it to add – to an air vent. Supplied with temperature sensors and pressure, Smart Vent, analyzes indicators of air and banishes air on the house. Result – economy on accounts for the electric power since it reduces load of conditioning systems and heating. It is connected to the smartphone, gives the chance to set the user temperature zones in different parts of the house. Besides, developers did not forget that it is, after all, a decor element therefore it is possible to pick up the type of the device which is in harmony with your interior.

Apparently, not all devices will become part of an ecosystem of the smart house. Some of them treat this concept rather narrowly – within connection of the device to the application. Some devices, for example a pot for watering of plants – it is probable, will not be repaid economically. Many just make advances to smart subject that they selected their teapot, but not any other. And then it is more likely a craze. The most interesting is to monitor the one which of the companies taking shy steps towards automation as a result will convince consumers and will create the new direction of smart home devices without which we will not be able to provide each day. And will provide itself enormous profits in a mass segment. Let's look what will show January of the next year!
