It’s 2017, and Smart products are everywhere. The Internet of Things(IoT) is pioneering a new era of intelligent products that will help the world live smarter. IoT which removes the distance between digital and physical world, is connecting products to the internet and one another, which creates new opportunities for user experience and in turn drives up product value. The demand for smart, connected products, and the ability to make them quickly and at lowered cost are converging right now.
Every industry today is building smart, connected products: toys, clothing and wearables, sports, travel bags, smart appliances, smart buildings, smart boats, and even smarter cities and infrastructure. Manufacturers are actively looking for ways to keep up and build smart products, because they are catching onto the fact that smart products will surpass even social networking in their ubiquity .
The IoT Revolution has already happened. Due to a rise in demand, lowered production costs, and changes in consumer expectations, smart products are already being built at a terrific rate. The question isn’t whether or not you should go smart, but when.
Here are some examples, where Smart products can be used to create a more connected and automated environment in our daily life.
How Smart our homes can become
Connected home devices include home automation devices such as Smart thermostats and WiFi-enabled light bulbs, Home Energy monitoring devices such as a connected energy devices which keep monitoring energy used by any appliance or the house as a whole, and home security devices (such as a security camera that connects to a central monitoring station).
Tired after a long day at work? TechCrunch reported on how smart mattress will help you sleep better by tracking your sleep and adjusting the environment, including lights and room temperature.
Air-conditioners that turn on as soon as you are closer to your house, so you are welcomed by a cooler atmosphere. Smart security alarms and door locks make sure your house is safe when you are not around.
Smart Plugs that make almost all your appliances automated can be used for variety of applications. Smart homes are converting our daily lives to be more connected and automated, so we can worry less about things and focus on more important tasks at hand.
Watches are no longer just for telling time. The Apple Watch and other smartwatches on the market have turned our wrists into smartphone holsters by enabling text messaging, phone calls, and so much more. And devices such as Fitbit and Jawbone have helped revolutionize the fitness world by providing people with more data about their workouts and health.
The IoT has the potential to transform entire cities by solving real problems citizens face each day. Now with greater use of technology, a number of cities are accumulating data, delivering innovation, and enhancing lives of citizens. With the proper connections and data, the Internet of Things can solve traffic congestion issues and reduce noise, crime, and pollution.
Take a Smart bike lock, for example. Bike theft is a serious issue for anyone who cycles frequently. A smart bike lock with GPS tracking connected to an application is incredibly valuable for owners, who can instantly identify the bike’s location and retrieve it. But once the smart bike lock is connected to an application, it accrues value exponentially to cover much more than theft prevention. The same app serves as a social tool that enables multiple users to connect with one another, suggest routes, swap advice, and plan trips together. Another possible service would connect users to the nearest bike repair shop, directly on the app.
Smart cars (Tesla), Smart bands, Smart buildings, Smart parking spaces, the possibilities are endless. These are some advantages of having Smart products. As discussed in our previous blog, we can increase our productivity and make efficient use of time to our work. Many of these ways can be applied by using our Smart products, so you can do whats important and make use of your time efficiently.
The list of smart devices and smart products for automating our life keeps growing. Cynaze explores new smart home concepts each time and we’re sure the explosion in demand will lead to more and more innovations to talk about.
