Can smart speakers awaken consumers to smart home purchases

A new study, “UX Technology Planning: Smart Home Environments,” released by Strategy Analytics’ User Experience Strategy (UXS) service, investigates the needs, behaviors and expectations of future smart home users as vendors fail to adequately communicate the need for connected lifestyles to consumers. The analysis points out that the smart home has not yet been accepted by the mass market because manufacturers have failed to effectively communicate with consumers about their values and needs. It is critical to awaken consumer awareness through marketing and to communicate how smart home solutions can solve problems and provide convenience in the home. Consumers are reluctant to buy more expensive smart devices when they don’t feel they are getting value for money.

Smart speakers such as Amazon Echo and Google Home could be the disruptor within that dilemma – they close the gap between price and value. strategy Analytics senior analyst and report author Taryn Tulay said, ” Smart speakers on the market today offer consumers a non-intrusive, less expensive, first-time smart home product with easy scalability, high compatibility, multiple use cases outside of the home environment, and hands-free control. They are also able to make ongoing updates to cover new devices and services.”

Chris Schreiner, director of UXIP multi-user research at Strategy Analytics, added, “Informing consumers about how a connected lifestyle will improve their quality of life is critical to driving smart home adoption; which devices and services are compatible can encourage further adoption — it’s an ongoing education process. Smart speakers offer a simple but valuable solution to drive consumer understanding of the tangible benefits of smart home solutions.”

What benefits can smart home system bring to us

In recent years, artificial intelligence is gradually penetrating into all walks of life, and smart products can be found in numerous ways. Is it necessary to buy a smart home? Just when artificial intelligence is quietly coming into our lives, the domestic smart home field is rapidly rising, and it is gradually changing everyone with its advanced living concept.

What benefits can smart home system bring to us

Smart home provides not only smart home products, but also a complete smart home system. It is committed to creating a safe and convenient, comfortable, energy-saving and ecological intelligent living office environment for users.

One of the benefits: solving safety hazards

After the smart home, the owner can intuitively understand the situation at home, in case of unexpected situations, can be dealt with in a timely manner.

For example, if a thief enters the home, the smart home security system will alert in real time and take measures; for example, if a gas leak occurs at home due to man-made or other reasons, at this time Dimansi combustible gas sensor will push an alarm letter to the APP, and you can remotely open the window or close the gas valve. Family members who are at home or nearby can make timely aftermath; even if family members are not at home, they can contact neighbors and open the door remotely through smart devices, so that neighbors can help solve the problem. Homeowners can check the situation in the common areas of their homes through their cell phones and get the latest progress.

Benefit No. 2: Comfortable and convenient living

There are a large number of modern appliances such as lighting and home appliances in the house, and it would be tedious and distracting to operate each one individually. If the room area is large, this annoyance will increase exponentially. But if you have a smart home, you can integrate the appliances in your house, and all you need is a cell phone or iPad to solve these problems.

For example, if you want to watch a movie on the weekend, you need to: enter the door, turn on the lights, turn on the air conditioner, turn on the TV, turn on the player, operate the remote control, and turn off the lights in several steps. And the remote controls for air conditioners, TVs, players and other appliances are not universal, so it”s a lot of trouble to find them, and you”ll lose your mood for watching movies!

Now, you can throw away all kinds of annoying remote control, just need a cell phone, before watching movies, you can turn on the appliances through intelligent devices “one key”, at this time your home air is fresh, the light is soft, the temperature is appropriate.


Benefit 3: Remote centralized control

In addition to the traditional panel control, the control methods of smart home also include voice control, mobile control, robot control and voice butler control. For example, turn your cell phone, iPad, tablet PC into a smart controller. Doing so not only allows you to operate remotely, but also centralizes the control of your home appliances, making life more convenient.

When technology has developed to a certain stage, people should enjoy the convenience brought by technology. Fast-paced life makes modern people lack of what? The most lacking thing is time, so we shouldn”t waste our time on these trivial things. Let”s throw them to the smart home, and we can just enjoy a healthy and comfortable life.

Of course, the benefits of smart home are by no means limited to the above, but the core value is the same: technology should simplify your life, not make it more complicated. The purpose of Dimansi smart home is to build an efficient management system for residential facilities and family affairs, to enhance the convenience and comfort of home life, to enjoy private customization, to advocate minimalist life, and to realize a new “people-oriented” home life experience.

The smart home brings us a living scene of interconnection of all things. No matter when and where we are, we can control all home appliances at home at any time, which precisely needs the support of IOT.

Smart home connects various devices at home through IoT technology to provide various functions and means such as home appliance control, lighting control, curtain control, anti-theft alarm, environmental monitoring, HVAC control, timing control, etc.

At present, there are more and more places where IoT applications become available, and it is an inevitable trend to purchase smart home in the IoT environment.

Brief description of home automation

To realize the automation of people”s home
work and home management, reduce the trouble of people”s family life, save
people”s time, improve the quality of people”s material and cultural life, we
must rely on modern automatic control technology, computer technology and
communication technology and other means.

 

With the development of modern science and
technology and the improvement of people”s living standards, the scope of home
automation is increasingly expanding. The earliest automatic equipment into the
family are automatic washing machine and air automatic regulating device. For
home security system, home automatic control system, home information system
and home robot, some have reached the actual standard, some are in the research
and improvement stage, in the field of intelligent home, home automation has
become one of the important symbols of human social progress.


The concept of home automation

Home automation refers to the use of
microprocessor electronic technology to integrate or control the home electronics,
electrical products or systems, that is, a CPU to receive information from the
relevant electronic, electrical products, and then send the appropriate
information to other electronic, electrical products with the established
program. For example, lighting, coffee machine, computer equipment, security
system, heating and air conditioning system, audio and video system, etc.


 

The central microprocessor must control the
home appliances through many interfaces, which can be keypad, once touch
screen, button, computer, phone, remote control, etc. The consumer can send
signals to or receive signals from the central microprocessor.

Before the emergence of smart home, home
automation is equivalent to smart home. Today it is still one of the core of
smart home, therefore, home automation is an important system of smart home.
With the widespread application of network technology and smart home, the
maturity of network home appliances / information home appliances, many product
functions of home automation gradually into these intelligent products, so that
the simple home automation products in the system design is less and less, its
core position is gradually replaced by the home network / home information
system. Therefore, in the field of smart home, home automation will play a role
as a control network in the home network.

 

Advantages of Home Automation

In China, home automation has been the main
battlefield for companies to compete for the smart home market, the two major
camps in China are Haier Jiajia and Lenovo Shoulian, the former focuses on the
home, the latter is concerned about business, but ultimately focused on home
network automation.

 

With the gradual clarification of the
Internet of Things, many popular IOT technologies have flocked to the home
automation field, A LugBee, Z-Wave, Insteon and so on. These agreements and
standards compete with each other to promote the prosperity of technology in
the field of automation, but also to promote the smart home to live
intelligently forward. At present, from the perspective of people”s needs, the
market needs stable performance, suitable price, easy to use automation
products. This requires the relevant enterprises to provide plug-and-play,
cost-effective, practical, modular intelligent products. Therefore, to improve
the utilization of resources and industry transparency, through cooperation and
economies of scale to reduce costs, is the way to jointly promote the healthy
development of the industry, but also the premise of the advantages of home
automation.
