We often hear about the Internet of Things in our reports. On the one hand, we feel that it is changing our lives. On the other hand, we feel as if we are unfamiliar with it, what the Internet of Things is, and how it will create a future lifestyle. We observe the development trend of the Internet of Things from products and services launched by manufacturers such as Home Technology and Wild Networks.
From the air experts into the homes of ordinary people
With a deep air detection technology foundation, in 2006, its technology combined with wireless network functions, across the IoT device industry, and successfully cooperated with the Taipei International Flower Expo to provide air quality detection related instruments, and started in 2011. Cut into the home market and launch many products that are suitable for home use.
At present, Home Internet's home IoT devices canLCD MONITOR ARM be divided into two major product lines, one is a safety-related smoke detector, a carbon monoxide/gas detector, and an anti-theft device, and the other is a health-related air quality. Detector, light detector, emergency call button, and more.
Using Zigbee wireless technology
The biggest feature of the above mentioned IoT devices is that all of them can be connected to each other through a wireless network, and the installation and setting are quite simple, and most people can easily install them by DIY.
ZigBee is a short-range, low-power wireless communication protocol based on the IEEE 802.15.4 specification. ZigBee is a wireless low-speed wireless communication protocol based on the IEEE 802.15.4 specification. Its biggest feature is the ability to automatically organize peer-to-peer wireless networks. And support multi-hop routing (Multi-hop Routing), which allows multiple devices to extend the communication range by means of jumper.
For example, the user only needs to place oneLaptop Tray Manufacturers host in the living room at home, and connect one central control host to an external network (such as ADSL or fiber-optic data machine), and then put various IoT devices in each room of the home, the device It will automatically connect to the central control host. If some devices are located in relatively distant rooms or on different floors, the signals cannot be directly transmitted to the central control host. These devices will also search for other nearby devices to relay the signals. The central control host communicates, so it is suitable for use in the home environment.
Internet of Things guards home security
Take security-related products introduced by 科技家科技 as an example, some of which are related to the monitoring of risk factors in the environment, including smoke detectors that can alert in the early stages of a fire, and carbon monoxide/gas detection that can prevent harmful gases from causing harm. The other part of the detector is a person movement sensor, a door magnetic sensor, a monitor, and the like related to theft prevention.
Take the risk factor monitoring product as an example. The difference between it and the traditional detector is that the products of the company have the Internet of Things function. Therefore, in addition to the alarm installed in the home, the user can also give an alarm in advance. Set up smart phones, tablets, and even nearby friends and relatives who send alerts to the whole family. This will not only increase the ability to notify when an accident occurs, increase the time of escape, but also automatically notify other places. Friends and relatives, when there is a chance, there are other people outside the house who can seek help and improve the chances of successful rescue.
As for the anti-theft product part, it benefits from the Internet of Things function, allowing each product to communicate with each other and play an unprecedented intelligent function. For example, in the case of using a general monitor, all entrances and exits or rooms need to be equipped with surveillance cameras, and the film is not stopped. It is not only very expensive, but also requires a lot of hard disks to store videos. It is quite inefficient to access the monitor screen.
In the case of using the technology, the entire anti-theft system seems to constitute a dense monitoring network. When the mobile sensor detects someone intrusion, or the door sensor detects that the door is opened, it can pass through the central control host. Command the corresponding monitor to start recording, and send a notification to the user through the network. At this time, the user can even directly see the picture taken by the surveillance camera at home, or turn on the light and TV from the remote remote control, and let the thief think that there is someone at home. Do not dare to enter, play a powerful anti-theft function.
Health care is more peace of mind
In the case of health-related IoT products, air quality detectors are used. Users can install detectors for harmful substances such as carbon dioxide, formaldehyde and PM 2.5 aerosols in the room when the concentration of harmful substances is detected. When the temperature is too high, the user is actively notified through the control panel or the smart phone, so that the user can open or close the window according to the pollution source. In addition, the detector can also be connected with the full-function infrared remote controller to automatically turn on the power of the air filter in the home. In order to protect the air quality in the home, avoid dirty air or toxins endangering health.
As for the light detector, it can detect indoor light and ultraviolet intensity, automatically adjust the smart light bulb and window, create a comfortable ambient light source, and avoid excessive ultraviolet rays.
The emergency call button is designed for people who need special care or mobility problems. The appearance is similar to that of the key ring. Just press the button above, you can use the central control host as a relay station, and set the alarm or wisdom in advance. The mobile phone sends a notification so that the family can provide care as soon as possible.
Connect the line to play 1+1 greater than 2
The biggest strength of the Internet of Things is that each device has the ability to connect to the network, allowing each node to communicate with each other. This feature not only makes the device smarter, but also completely changes the single by the ability to interlock with each other. The function that the device can perform.
On the other hand, each device can also accept the command of the central control host, which means that the function of the device can be changed through the instructions issued by the central control host, which not only makes the function more flexible, but also can be updated through software. Join new features that you didn't have before.
For example, the motion sensor that was originally used for theft prevention can make it play a very different function in the field of care with a little ingenuity. For example, we can record the activity frequency of the elderly living alone (such as getting up and leaving the room) through the mobile sensor, and record the data in the central control host. If the mobile sensor does not detect activity in a few hours, it is likely that In the event of physical discomfort or accident, the central control unit can send a warning signal.
When the family sees the warning on the smart phone, they can start the monitor urgently, check whether the situation is normal from the far end, or rush to the scene for condolence.
Integrated services increase added value
Mr. Zhang Longcheng also mentioned that the strength of Yujia Technology lies in system integration, using technology as the theme, and arranging products into various application scenarios, so that the value of products can be maximized.
I believe that the application of the Internet of Things will only become more and more popular in the future. When it reaches every family, it will have more opportunities to connect with the government's infrastructure, so that emergency rescue, medical care, long-term lighting and other systems can be mastered more quickly and instantly. Information, allocates limited resources in a more efficient manner, and reduces unnecessary waste, creating higher added value for the entire society.
