Analysis of Communication Mode of Count Smart Home

1. Bus based communication:

RS485 / can / ft bus communication technology is adopted between nodes. Avoiding system architecture and other factors, this kind of smart home system has the strongest anti-interference ability and the most stable system. However, its disadvantages are also obvious. Node communication requires special communication lines, and the installation and commissioning cost is the highest, especially the modification. The smart home systems a few years ago basically belong to bus smart home systems.

2. Based on wireless communication:

Wireless communication technology is used for communication between nodes. This is the emerging smart home system after the breakthrough of wireless communication technology in recent years.

It can be divided into two categories:

a) RF wireless communication technology represented by 315m 433M. This is a wireless communication technology with the simplest technology and the lowest cost. Because of its low technical threshold and low power consumption, it can realize the wireless remote control of single fire switch. Therefore, it has been widely used in the field of smart home system. However, its disadvantages are also obvious, such as poor wall penetration ability, too far communication distance, too close communication distance, easy saturation and blocking, single channel communication, easy * * interference, etc. unstable communication is the hard injury of RF smart home.

b) Wireless communication technology represented by ZigBee / zwave. This kind of wireless communication technology has the ability of ad hoc network and multi-channel communication, and its anti-interference ability and relay ability are greatly strengthened. It has the potential to replace RF wireless smart home system. However, its disadvantages are also obvious. Compared with RF technology, the power consumption is larger. It can only be made into zero fire switch, that is, it is necessary to add zero line on the basis of traditional single fire switch. In addition, like RF, it has the disadvantages of poor through wall ability and insufficient communication distance. Although ZigBee relay can solve the problem of distance, with the increase of relay number and the number of nodes, the communication quality will become worse, and node drop and communication failure will occur frequently.

3. Smart home system based on power communication:

The original power line is used for communication between nodes. Power line communication is also a bus communication technology, but it uses the original wire as the communication medium. Unlike the bus, it needs a special communication bus. Its advantage is quite obvious. It can not only avoid wiring like wireless, but also communicate like bus, and the communication distance is also greater than wireless communication. There are also many power line communication technologies, mainly the following two:

a) X10 power line communication technology. X10 is a power line communication technology that modulates the signal at the zero crossing point of AC. because it modulates the signal at the zero crossing point, it can greatly reduce the signal interference. It is a relatively stable power line communication technology. But its disadvantages are also here. The communication efficiency is too low, which is not suitable for the increasingly complex smart home needs, and has gradually faded out of the smart home system.

b) PLC power line communication technology. PLC is a technology for carrier modulation on power lines, among which echelon of the United States does the best. It adopts narrowband technology with digital signal processing technology, dual carrier frequency technology and forward error correction technology, which greatly improves the communication quality and communication speed. PLC power line communication technology is one of the most suitable communication technologies for smart home.

4. Ethernet based communication: the biggest advantage of this communication technology is that it can communicate directly with smart phones through WiFi. The disadvantage is that the production cost of nodes is high, and like ZigBee, it is prone to drop lines. It is not suitable for occasions with many nodes, not suitable for smart home system, but more suitable for smart home products.

Gree's New Mobile Phones Are Difficult to Sell, and Gree Is Ready to Enter the Smart Home Market
On December 7, Gree official mall released its first 5g mobile phone, named DASONG 5g mobile phone. The price of 6 128G version is 2699 yuan and the price of 8 265g version is 2999 yuan. As of press time, the sales volume of this mobile phone is zero.Since starting to make mobile phones in 2015, DASONG 5g mobile phone is the fourth generation mobile phone released by Gree. Leopard change found that in addition to DASONG mobile phone, Gree's official website is also selling Gree's third-generation mobile phone released in March 2019, priced at about 3400 yuan to 3600 yuan. Through comparison, it is found that DASONG mobile phone not only supports 5g function, but also sells 21 months later than the third generation mobile phone, but the price is significantly cheaper than the previous generation mobile phone.The price reduction may be to increase sales. Leopard change found that although Gree's third-generation mobile phones have been released for nearly two years, the sales volume is not ideal. According to the data of Gree's official mall, the total sales volume of the whole series is less than 8000.According to wind data, Zhuhai Gree DASONG living appliances Co., Ltd. was established in 2013. It operates tosot DASONG brand, mainly engaged in living appliances such as rice cookers and air purifiers.Although mobile phones are not selling well, Dong Mingzhu has not given up. In October this year, Gree sued the State Intellectual Property Office for the second-generation Gree "color world" trademark. For Gree mobile phones are not popular in the market, Dong Mingzhu once said that Gree sells mobile phones not for market share, but for future intelligence.According to Gree's product layout, Gree is still highly dependent on air conditioning products for profit. Wind data show that in the first half of this year, air conditioning accounted for 58.5% of Gree's total operating revenue. In terms of air conditioning business, Midea, an old rival of Gree, accounts for 45.8% of the total revenue, and consumer appliances with higher gross profit margin account for 38%.At present, Midea and Haier have launched smart home business, and Xiaomi is also overweight the smart home ecology. In order to enrich the variety of products, Gree has also begun to prepare to enter the smart home market. As a smart terminal, mobile phones have naturally become strategic products that Gree can't let go.
Brand Selection Is an Important Play. Smart Home Should Pay Attention to the Transmission of Life Co
Brand Selection Is an Important Play. Smart Home Should Pay Attention to the Transmission of Life Co
In this environment, the smart home industry is even more popular. More and more large, medium and small players also begin to covet the trillion scale of the smart home market, and have entered the market across borders and joined in.For ordinary entrepreneurs, changing from their familiar traditional industry to a new and unfamiliar smart home field requires not only the courage to go out of the comfort zone, but also the wisdom and long-term vision of the first step. It is particularly important to accurately grasp the future development trend. However, entrepreneurs who want to change careers or have entered the smart home field at present, There will be some confusion.Recently, at the spring new product conference of livinglab life experiment smart home held in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, Du Xiaowen, Zhengzhou agent of livinglab smart home and general manager of Henan Lingying home Co., Ltd., shared with the guests his mental journey and experience from building materials and sanitary ware industry to smart home, Zhijia.com summarizes the valuable contents shared by President Du and hopes to help entrepreneurs with zero experience in smart home to avoid detours in their exploration.Du Xiaowen, Zhengzhou agent of livinglab life experimentPeople without foresight must have immediate worries. Switching to the smart home industry is a breakthrough in the new directionFrom the building materials and sanitary ware industry, which has been painstakingly operating for seven years, to the emerging smart home industry, Mr. Du Xiaowen said frankly that his friends in the building materials industry circle were unable to understand and did not understand why he suddenly switched to such a strange industry. In this regard, Du Xiaowen said that the traditional building materials and home industry has passed the peak of development and is now in the late stage of development, I have seen this familiar field very thoroughly. In the new era, as a person who dares to think and do, I also need more development space, and people without foresight must have immediate worries, so I need to choose a new direction to break through.Turning to the smart home field, in addition to the decline of the traditional building materials industry, Du Xiaowen said that the key factor is that the popularization of the smart home industry is the general trend of the whole social development, and emerging industries will be the pillar of national economic growth. Although when cooperating with livinglab smart home headquarters, At that time, I felt that the atmosphere of building a smart family in society was not so strong, but this was the future trend due to the development of technology, policy support, consumption upgrading demand and the important role of the industry itself in economic development. This was also the reason why I chose to enter the bathroom industry in 2010. At that time, the bathroom was an emerging industry in the process of urbanization, Sanitary ware will soon become a family standard and enter the consumer market.Brand selection is an important play. Smart home should pay attention to the transmission of life conceptFor entrepreneurs who want to enter the smart home industry, everyone must go through the stages of market investigation and brand selection. Mr. Du Xiaowen also came step by step. In the second half of 2017, he began to communicate with the relevant principals of livinglab life experiment smart home. After eight months of communication and investigation, Du Xiaowen finally reached a cooperation intention with livinglab life experiment.Recalling the process of his investigation at that time, Mr. Du Xiaowen said that he had a comprehensive understanding of policies, products, technology and ideas. As a high-tech industry, smart home must have high requirements for technology. This was his most basic understanding as a layman at that time, so it was important to go to the field to experience. In addition, from the landing of products, Smart home brands that choose to cooperate must be differentiated from other brands in the market. Du Xiaowen believes that a strong original brand is very important because it is supported by technical strength.Smart home products should fit perfectly with consumers and be divided into different consumption levels. They should not only meet the needs of high-end consumer groups, but also be "grounded" and popular, and the product price should be acceptable to ordinary consumers. Livinglab life experiment smart home uses different technologies to launch a variety of series of products for different consumer groups, The consumer market covers a wider range, and these advantages are deeply recognized by Du Xiaowen.In the era of rapid development of technology, the upgrading speed of household appliances and other products is very fast, especially intelligent products, so the capacity expansion of technology is very important. In addition, Mr. Du Xiaowen also mentioned the product concept. He believes that a good product should have a life concept. In the process of bringing the product to the market, it should enable consumers to feel that you are not only promoting the product to him, but also transmitting a life concept. Such a product is more persuasive, easier for consumers to understand, and more conducive to tapping consumer demand points, Mr. Du Xiaowen pointed out that in fact, many high-end designers have a strong interest in smart home, but they don't understand what smart home is. This involves the design concept of smart home products. For example, promoting smart home is not only selling products, but also delivering a more comfortable, convenient and safe lifestyle.The staff are explaining to the customerOpportunities and risks coexist. The key to making smart home is to be able to landSmart home has a strong development momentum, but the most important thing is to be able to land and not float in the sky. In view of the extremely hot investment attraction in the industry, Mr. Du Xiaowen said frankly that although smart home is an emerging industry with broad development prospects, it also has high risks. Some brands may not have mature technology or business models, Then you can't stick to it. You had this feeling when you were in the bathroom industry, so he also suggested that entrepreneurs should always be rational. In the smart home industry, technology breakthrough and business model are the key points to help the brand landing.Referring to his own experience, Mr. Du Xiaowen gave some examples in combination with the actual situation of Zhengzhou market. He said that in the view of laymen, Zhengzhou market may be better than some counties and cities, but this is not absolute. After all, Zhengzhou house prices are relatively high, and some people have invested a lot of money in buying and decorating villas, so the economy may be tense in the later stage, We will not consider installing the whole house smart home, but those young people who live in 80 or 90 square meters of small three houses in small counties and cities have a young mentality and pursue a quality life. On the contrary, they will want to have the whole house smart home. This phenomenon is just contrary to our thinking. Therefore, when entering the smart home industry, do not start from having money or not having money, The size of the house is easy to judge whether consumers will pay for the smart home. The key is that your products should be able to enter the mass consumer market. Only in this way can you do it for a long time.With regard to the expansion channels of the smart home market, Mr. Du Xiaowen believes that you can cooperate with designers or carry out different industry alliances. It will be better to inspire consumers through designers than tough sales. In addition, you can also participate in some group purchase meetings. Secondly, there must be a physical smart home exhibition hall. After all, what you sell is not products, but intelligent life scenes, In terms of the reception process of the exhibition hall, even if there is no fixed format, there are still some concepts such as customer reception and telemarketing. We must pay attention to details.The smart home industry releases the signal of landing popularity, and the marketing experience needs to be constantly explored and renovated5g concept is hot, gradually entering the pre commercial stage, and has been truly implemented in some regions this year. 5g network has become a social infrastructure, which will certainly drive the faster development of smart home and artificial intelligence industry. In addition to external factors, Mr. Du Xiaowen said that from the opening of smart home experience stores in high-end home stores such as Zhengzhou incredibly home and red star Macalline, Since 2018, the number has indeed gradually increased, which also releases a very obvious signal that smart home should be popularized, transition from listening to seeing in the stage of market education, and then really land.How to seize this opportunity and make smart home truly popular depends on how dealers understand smart home. In Mr. Du Xiaowen's opinion, engaging in the smart home industry at this stage is the same as at the early stage of reform and opening up. You don't have rich and ready-made experience to learn. In this process, everyone keeps exploring and renovating, We should think about how to package and promote smart home.His familiarity with the local market, analysis of consumption level and understanding of competitive brands are all conducive to helping us achieve precision marketing, which also has a lot to do with the marketing ideas before changing careers. Mr. Du Xiaowen said that only by doing smart home marketing can we really attack hard. In addition, Mr. Du Xiaowen also eagerly hopes that more like-minded partners will join the smart home industry, practice and know the truth. We can communicate together, summarize and share experience in practice, and the probability of success will be higher.
Which Connection Mode Should Be Selected for Smart Home Products?
Which Connection Mode Should Be Selected for Smart Home Products?
"Smart" says it every year, especially this year. Many manufacturers have started the "intelligent" road of their products. Therefore, there are smart TV, smart air conditioner, smart refrigerator, smart lighting... All kinds of intelligent household products.At present, the players of smart home products are mainly divided into three types. One is traditional manufacturers, who want to make their products more competitive through transformation; One is the Internet giant, who wants to grab the entrance to the Internet through these products; There is also a new generation of makers. They have no clear purpose. Some are purely hobbies, just playing, and some want to make a difference in the wave of "intelligence"These three players have their own characteristics. Traditional manufacturers have strong hardware, fast product iteration and can keep up with the pace of the market, but their software ability is their weakness; Internet giants have strong network software, have a large number of users and are familiar with user experience, but their hardware manufacturing ability is weak; The new generation of makers have strong innovation and many ideas, but their manufacturing capacity is zero.So what is the current situation of smart home products on the market? To be honest, it's really not good. First of all, the user experience is relatively poor, the installation and use are cumbersome, and the learning cost is high; Secondly, the product is seriously fragmented, the function is relatively single, and the gimmick is greater than the application; In addition, it relies too much on the network and is bound by the network, so it can not be used when the network is disconnected.At present, among the popular connection technologies, wireless connection methods mainly include WiFi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, etc., and wired connection methods include PLC.Wireless connection modeWiFi based smart products are the most common, which is inseparable from some of the advantages of WiFi in addition to the popularity of WiFi itself. Its biggest advantage is that the transmission rate is high, which can reach 54Mbps, its effective distance is also very long, it is convenient to integrate with the existing wired Ethernet, and the networking cost is relatively low.Its disadvantage is that the cost and power consumption are relatively high. At present, there are many companies providing WiFi connection solutions. The mainstream ones are Qualcomm's low-power single-chip platform qca401x, Broadcom's highly integrated low-power wiced platform, MediaTek's recently launched mt7687, Marvell's mw300 and ST's spwf series micro intelligent WiFi modules, etc.For the problem of high WiFi power consumption, chip manufacturers have been trying to improve. Recently, the domestic rockchip claimed to have developed a WiFi chip rki6000 with power consumption close to the Bluetooth 4.0 Le standard. According to the news released by their company, they mainly realize ultra-low power consumption through the following three aspects:1. Improvement of wireless communication and RF system architecture. This technology can greatly reduce the power consumption of IOT intelligent hardware equipment when continuously receiving and sending data, and enable intelligent hardware to achieve ultra-low power consumption during standby and use. At present, this technology has obtained dozens of international patents.2. Implementation of adaptive dynamic power control technology. This technology can improve the power efficiency in different working modes, greatly reduce the comprehensive energy consumption in different application scenarios, and adjust the chip power configuration according to the data transmission requirements and actual transmission quality to achieve the best energy efficiency ratio.3. WiFi online connection does not wake up the technical innovation of the master control. According to the long standby and online characteristics of IOT Internet of things applications, rki6000 can maintain WiFi online connection without waking up the main control processor, thus simplifying the design of system power consumption and prolonging battery life.ZigBee products are not very common. They are characterized by low power consumption, good confidentiality, strong scalability, large network capacity and low transmission rate.At present, the domestic ZigBee technology mainly adopts the 2.4G frequency in the ISM band, which has weak diffraction ability and wall penetration ability. In the home environment, even a door, a window and a non load-bearing wall will greatly reduce the signal. In addition, compared with WiFi and Bluetooth, there are not many chip manufacturers supported. At present, the latest include ti's cc2630, Marvell's MZ100 ZigBee microcontroller, Freescale's kinetis W series wireless modules, etc.Like WiFi, Bluetooth has a large number of terminal support. Although Bluetooth has the disadvantages of weak security, networking ability and anti-interference ability, with the launch of Bluetooth 4.0 and the support of mesh function, its application has become more extensive. Mesh Bluetooth technology can realize communication and linkage between devices, automatic progress of multipoint connection and remote control. The most common Bluetooth mesh solution is Broadcom's wiced mesh module product.Wiced mesh is characterized by simple configuration and easy deployment. The mesh device can be configured using a smartphone without special hardware devices. Point to point access, users can easily access any node from the mobile phone, update information and access safely. The network is easy to expand.Broadcom Bluetooth chip has good compatibility with Bluetooth in mobile phones, TVs and other products, and supports higher transmission power and lower sensitivity. The 20736 ble mesh SOC chip with low power consumption and low cost provided by the company has completed the process from concept to application.Figure 1: smart home product solution of Shenzhen Jianlian interworking Technology Co., Ltd.
Development History and Future Trend of Smart Home Wireless Protocol
Development History and Future Trend of Smart Home Wireless Protocol
According to a recent report by crimson hexagon, "from 2014 to 2017, smart home technology began to receive widespread attention, and more than 60% of consumers showed great interest in smart home technology." if you work in the Internet of things industry, you may be familiar with reports and data, Because this indicates the future market development opportunities of intelligent networked families.We all know that when consumers buy smart home products, they are often affected by many factors, such as entertainment, convenience, security, improving household energy efficiency and reducing energy expenditure. However, behind these, we all know that one of the biggest obstacles to the development of smart home is the interoperability of smart home devices and more and more wireless protocols.Wireless protocols such as Z-Wave and Wi Fi are important pillars of the Internet of things infrastructure; In some cases, these languages used between devices create fragmented or closed ecosystems, which often cause confusion and application obstacles to end users.With the increasing popularity of modern smart home, the number of corresponding protocols and functions is also increasing. Although engineers, developers and manufacturers all try to create products that they think have the best user experience and introduce new protocols and technologies, everyone wants to unify standards and connect and control all products. In order to better understand how we reach the current protocol state of smart home, let's look at a short history.Internet of things before Internet of thingsFirst, what is the function of wireless protocol in smart home?In short, a protocol is a language or function of how devices communicate and understand each other. Many people believe that the emergence of modern smart home protocol can be traced back to the creation of x10 (an international common smart home power carrier protocol) in the 1970s. It is the first general communication protocol for electronic devices. Soon after, various other protocols were developed, including Z-Wave, and UPB (universal power line bus), Wi Fi and insteon (a two-way hybrid communication technology with low complexity, low power consumption, low data transmission rate and low cost, with the characteristics of instant response, easy installation, easy use, economic reliability and compatibility with X10) to solve various problems in the consumer electronics and home control market.Released in 1999, UPB uses power line wiring for signal and control to provide a high level of reliability and transmission rate through existing wires in the home. This is a highly technical technology, which is difficult to adopt for DIY people who have little corresponding technical knowledge. In addition, Wi Fi was introduced in the early 1990s to transmit a large amount of data. Today, Wi Fi allows devices to connect in smart homes and allows users to enjoy remote control of home devices. However, Wi Fi does exist and faces challenges such as high interference and high power consumption, which is not ideal for battery powered products.Following Wi Fi, new generation protocols such as Z-Wave and insteon enhance network signals by providing efficient and low-power connections and using mesh networks, which are mainly designed for home control.Early technology of smart homeInsteon is designed by smartlabs Inc. to solve the connection between power line and wireless protocol. They were a unique solution at that time, but their closed ecosystem made it difficult for consumers to adopt.As an early mesh network technology, ZigBee was developed by HomeRF alliance. It is a wireless proprietary protocol with many different "profiles", which is mainly used in commercial, energy and remote control markets. Like ZigBee, Z-Wave is also a mesh network protocol, which was launched by the Danish company zensys in 2001 and is now owned by silicon labs.Z-Wave is specially built for smart home; Home control enthusiasts and developers know that in order to succeed, the standard must not only use low-power power power, but also not interfere with other home electronics, but also become stronger with the increase of equipment. As one of the original network technologies of home control, the tradition of Z-Wave continues today. Z-Wave is supported by the Z-Wave alliance, a member alliance of industry leaders committed to promoting standards. At the time of writing, Z-Wave has more than 2400 certified Z-Wave devices and more than 700 members.New member of smart home protocolIn the past few years, with the development of smart home technology, the demand for low-power mesh network as the technical pillar of smart home has prompted other standards organizations to constantly explore their own technology. We have seen that existing standards organizations such as thread (jointly launched by Samsung, nest, arm, big ass fans, Freescale and silicon labs, which is an IP based wireless network protocol used to connect smart products at home) and Bluetooth Technology Organization (SIG) and Wi Fi alliance have announced their own versions of Bluetooth mesh network and Wi Fi halow mesh network protocol.Thread was launched by Google and other large companies interested in smart home in 2014. Thread naturally supports IPv6 and aims to cooperate with Google and nest, but does not solve the problem of product level interoperability. Bluetooth grid was officially launched by sig in 2017. It has different functions compared with the known Bluetooth point-to-point communication. For the wi fihalow mesh network protocol, engineers from major chipset suppliers are worried about the power consumption of WiFi halow. They are worried that the protocol will consume too much energy for battery powered smart home devices.In addition, many newer protocols, such as Wi Fi halow, may take a long time to be adopted by manufacturers and create reasonable products for consumers, which is a major obstacle to their development.How will the smart home protocol develop in the future?The smart home market will continue to grow. So far, we have not seen enough signs that a certain standard or technology will dominate the world in the future. But we have a responsibility to help consumers understand the products they bring home and the role of each technology in practical application.For example, Wi Fi will become an integral part of the connection of all smart home products, especially if users want to be able to remotely access their devices outside the home. Bluetooth will play a key role in the smart lock market, so that consumers can easily open the door when they walk to the front door with a smart phone. Z-Wave is still a prominent technology in the security system. It connects lights, temperature controllers, door locks, sensors and other peripheral devices to make the family truly intelligent.At present, the commonly used network protocols include WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee and Z-Wave, but they all have shortcomings, such as:WiFi has high power consumption and is suitable for transmitting a large amount of data;Bluetooth power consumption is relatively low, but there is still a chaotic situation in which Bluetooth 2.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 coexist, and IPv6 is not supported;ZigBee technology is complex and the R & D cost is high;Z-Wave is led by zensys, a Danish company, and is not as strong as ZigBee Alliance for the time being.All wireless protocols have their advantages and disadvantages, but the most important selection factors are still interoperability and security, as well as more product choices. It depends on all of us, including everyone in the smart home ecosystem such as standards organizations, manufacturers, retailers and developers, to jointly promote and realize the interconnected smart home life.
How Is the Development of Smart Home Appliance Technology in the Whole House
How Is the Development of Smart Home Appliance Technology in the Whole House
This year, more and more manufacturers have expanded the scope of smart home to the whole house, rather than just getting a few "smart" TVs and refrigerators. However, only from the situation of the whole house intelligent model room displayed at the exhibition, the publicity volume is only a little higher at present, and the progress of specific equipment and inter equipment networking is not different from that a few years ago. There is no fundamental change, so that the whole house intelligence can be truly available and easy to use.Just like the trend shown by CES earlier, this awe is not limited to a simple home appliance exhibition, but almost turned into another "mobile Internet Conference" and "Artificial Intelligence Conference". The addition of scientific and technological factors is very conspicuous. Because speakers, televisions and other household appliances are the basic carriers of various "voice assistants", which are the development direction of Internet companies in recent years. As the controlled end, other household appliances are also loaded with smart chips. Therefore, Jingdong, Huawei, iFLYTEK and other names that are difficult to contact with household appliance manufacturers also rented a huge booth in this exhibition.Another exhibition area with high-tech content is the special area for sweeping robots. It can be clearly seen here that according to the length of time, manufacturers are divided into two camps: the "old school" who compete for their own work such as cleaning ability and efficiency, and the "new school" who emphasize intelligent characteristics such as chip integration rate and terrain detection. This also reflects that the current smart appliances are developing in two forked directions. Mobile phone users will Internet users and Internet users. If the new "spoiler" has no manufacturing experience and technology accumulation, they will emphasize themselves, Internet plus, intelligence and vice versa. This trend was reflected four or five years ago, when many Internet thinking manufacturers who developed only App and supporting network chips had to cooperate with traditional appliance manufacturers simultaneous interpreting.For a "smart TV", its most fundamental job is to display the picture, so the indicators such as clarity, color reduction and sound still take precedence over its indicators of "intelligent control of whole house appliances". For a "smart refrigerator", its priority indicators are also basic indicators such as capacity, energy consumption, refrigeration efficiency and temperature control ability, rather than intelligent characteristics.Since this priority is beneficial to home appliance manufacturers rather than Internet manufacturers, does it mean that home appliance manufacturers are easier to catch up with internet manufacturers in time in the research and development of intelligent features, so as to make up for their shortcomings? Awe's live display in 2019 does not support this speculation. There are not many manufacturers qualified to provide whole house intelligent solutions, and you can see a sea of opportunities in this venue Three traditional home appliance manufacturers, namely Dell, TCL and Gree, two Internet solution providers of Huawei and JD, and yunmi, an "Internet" manufacturer, demonstrated single brand home appliances that can fill the whole house.Unfortunately, after experiencing the interconnection scheme of manufacturers, you will basically give up the better illusion and only use these appliances as ordinary appliances that need to be switched on and off manually more than a decade ago. The wake-up words of the same brand are not unified. The wake-up word of the assistant of a manufacturer's smart TV is "small a, small a", but the wake-up word of the refrigerator is "Hello refrigerator".This may be intentional, because the refrigerator and TV may be too close to each other, resulting in the problem of not knowing who wakes up. But even so, in the ideal state, it should be the first device to hear the response and automatically "hang up" the response of other devices. In short, it is very strange that the wake-up words are different under the same brand. There are too many terminals and "scramble" "Everything that looks like a mirror and has the function of a display screen, such as the panel of the refrigerator, the panel of the range hood, or the bathroom dressing mirror, or even the door of the bedroom wardrobe, which looks flat, has become a screen. The screen is now an interactive main position, but it is all a screen, and it is not well done when not in use." "Stealth" will bring the psychological pressure of being monitored to users, not to mention the "snatching" mentioned when the problem is caused by network delay. If these screens are not all interconnected, such as the screen of wardrobe and TV, it may be even worse.Some smart home items show eye-catching new features. For example, Haier's smart mattress can monitor people's physiological state; and in the enclosed space of wardrobe and refrigerator, the remaining goods can be automatically detected according to sensors.However, some of the information still relies on consumers to manually input it through the mobile client, so it is always a little worse. For example, record what food you put in on the refrigerator screen and "shoot and clean" with a camera "If you think too much about identification, you need to manually scan the bar code of physical goods. If you want the wardrobe screen to judge what brand of clothes you put in, you must also scan the tag of clothes.Of course, consumers must return to the most fundamental indicators of home appliances, that is, from the perspective of basic factors such as appearance, performance and quality. An effective whole house intelligent system should be more helpful for consumers to buy the same home appliances at one time and buy new ones in the future, forming a consumption stickiness. They will not choose other people's solutions themselves, although they all say and do Open platform, so that small manufacturers can access, but not so many others come to support.It is impossible for most families to completely choose only one home appliance. If they want to prevent non brand home appliances from being forced to become "stupid equipment", compatibility has become the biggest bottleneck. In this regard, China Home Appliances Association (cheaa) and China Communication Standardization Association (CCSA) During awe, the two associations signed a memorandum of cooperation to become a standardized partner in the field of intelligent IOT. The two associations have more than 400 and more than 500 member units respectively, which can have an impact on manufacturers, spare parts and raw material supporting enterprises in the household appliance industry under their jurisdiction, as well as upstream and downstream enterprises adopting unified standards in the field of information and communication.Therefore, users' choices are still very limited. Choosing from a few products labeled "yunyun Internet" of different brands is almost as painful as choosing from the same brand. However, arbitrarily matching devices of different manufacturers will bring "smart" degradation due to mutual incompatibility "Given that the technology is still not mature enough and there is no complete consensus among manufacturers, if you happen to buy a new house for decoration at this time, you should be more careful to make choices after hearing the relevant publicity of the whole house intelligence, so as to take advantage of these electrical appliances." "It's a higher priority. After all, if you buy a new house in a larger city, it's impossible to use a remote control... It's not so unacceptable to switch on and off these appliances directly?
Domestic Smart Home Started Late, but the Industry Developed Rapidly in the Later Stage
Domestic Smart Home Started Late, but the Industry Developed Rapidly in the Later Stage
In recent years, the term smart home has frequently appeared in everyone's vision, but the domestic smart home market is not the earliest. Some overseas countries have used smart home products, and what are the different characteristics of smart home in these different countries?America: the home of Bill Gates, a model of science and technologyReferring to the development of smart home in the United States, the first thing many small partners think of is the gates residence with the title of "house of the future". Bill Gates spent a lot of money and years to build a world-renowned smart home model. A weather sensor is installed on the door of the future house. The control center computer can control the temperature and ventilation in the room through various weather indicators.It is not a rumor that the guests who came to Gates' house had a small electronic needle. The electronic needle is equipped with a micro sensor to display their position at any time. At the same time, the lighting, music, temperature, humidity and so on can be adjusted arbitrarily according to the needs of the guests. Bill Gates's "house of the future" has achieved a high degree of intelligence, that is, you don't need to do redundant operations. Your house already knows what you need to do. Of course, if you want to achieve this effect, you also need strong financial support, and ordinary families may not be able to achieve this effect. But this marks the development direction of the industry. Consumers' enthusiasm for "house of the future" also indicates that they need such a smart home.Australia: 100% automatic operation of housesThe remarkable feature of Australian smart home is that the house is 100% automatic and will not have any manual switch.

How to Build a Simple and Comfortable Smart Home
Smart home, also known as smart house, is an efficient, comfortable, safe, convenient and environment-friendly living environment based on house, with building equipment, network communication, information appliances and equipment automation, and integrating system, structure, service and management. It is an ideal way of life pursued by people. Let's share a comfortable and simple smart home solution for your reference!Comfortable and simple smart home solution1、 Intelligent bathroom solutionIntelligent bathroom can best reflect convenience, comfort and environmental protection, which is a weak link in the domestic market. Smart home system integrators regard the smart bathroom as a "leading solution" because the relaxation and comfort brought by the bathroom to users is the first step after going home and the most direct intelligent care. Therefore, the smart enjoyment of the bathroom is the top priority.2、 Intelligent temperature control solutionThe traditional model is inefficient, which is generally the largest expenditure of household energy cost. From the perspective of environmental protection, it is very wasteful.The intelligent temperature control solution allows users to set the heating expenditure of this month and allow the system to distribute the power supply by itself.The traditional temperature control system will not change according to the change of outdoor temperature, and it is completely controlled by the owner. The intelligent temperature control system will adjust the indoor heating supply according to the outdoor temperature. When the outdoor temperature is high, the indoor temperature supply will be reduced. This effect is especially significant in a single room, even if your room presents spring, summer, autumn and winter.When work comes home late, the electronic fence function can delay the pre heating time, and it will start automatically when you are on your way home.One click can set the temperature in each individual room. In the energy-saving mode, when users take a bath, they will give priority to heating the water heater. After going home and taking a bath, the temperature of the whole room has been adjusted to the best state. You can feel the warmth of the smart home from the smart bathroom to any room.It can be connected to any temperature control system3、 Intelligent light control solutionThe solution of intelligent light control is enough at one time. The "all lights off" scenario mode is used the most, but in the actual "hidden" light control, the illumination of the home changes with the change of external light, so the illumination of the home will not be too low.In some places, you can set it as a permanent low illumination area, such as a stairwell. Moreover, color and photometric adjustment can be controlled by voice, making control everywhere.In addition to the mode of leaving home and going home, video entertainment, watching movies, one button lighting control lighting scenes, romantic dinner lighting scenes, Party lighting scenes, low illumination lighting scenes, single room and multi room lighting scenes, and more atmosphere customized lighting scenes.4、 Automatic curtain solutionThe most suitable environment for automatic curtains is that there are too many and heavy curtains, or it is difficult to reach the position of curtains. Intelligent electric curtains can adjust the opening and closing according to the external sunlight illumination, or they can be timed automatically.In the viewing mode, you can automatically close the curtains and dim the lights. In addition to flat opening curtains, there are various automatic curtains such as shutter curtains, which are suitable for all kinds of windows.5、 Fresh air solutionIn winter, the use of central heating at home will cause no air circulation and people will feel very stuffy, but opening windows will reduce the temperature.

In addition, sound, light, color, vibration and air flow are used to simulate the real feeling in watching movies and games.Intelligent networkThe Internet has become a necessity for every family, but everyone's requirements for the Internet are also unique. The smart home network scheme is the foundation of home automation. You can save important information in your home local hard disk. You can also share resources with people at home to ensure that users use network resources most efficiently.Audio and videoThe transformation of audio and video can let you get rid of the traditional CD and DVD storage and change to a digital media audio and video storage server, so that you can call it anytime and anywhere from a long distance. Unlike the traditional digital audio and video storage, the audio and video storage after the transformation of smart home system can achieve CD level sound effect and theater level HD output enjoyment.Across from different rooms, music will follow your pace. When you are traveling, you can also remotely call the audio and video resources stored in the smart home system.In case of fire or intruders, the smart home system will give an audible alarm and push video at the first time.7、 Intelligent electronic equipmentHow to let electronic equipment manage health seems paradoxical in itself, but the practical application effect is remarkable. People spend the longest time at home. The monitoring of various health data and air and water is the most basic function. The wireless technology with the smallest electromagnetic radiation is adopted, and the radiation can be almost ignored for the selection of online products, such as the current indoor air The automatic purifier can start working when the environment is abnormal and suggestions for improvement are put forward. It is imperative to enjoy a healthy life with smart home.Electromagnetic radiation protectionFor example, for the transformation of Wi Fi, the wall AP transformation is used to minimize the Wi Fi bearing radiation in each room. In addition, the use time of Wi Fi and smart home can be controlled regularly in the children's room to reduce the amount of electromagnetic radiation to children.Mould proof and steam treatmentCooking, bathing, using steam iron and breathing, the water vapor in the house will cause condensation and condensation on the internal surface of the house, and water molecules will breed spore fungi and produce black mold.Infection controlInfectious disease control is very important for everyone in the family. Non contact faucet and toilet flushing system are very important, which can greatly reduce the probability of secondary infection and cross infection.Community health careThe selection of smart wear and smart medical products will share the analysis data with your private doctors or community hospitals through the cloud platform, so that doctors can monitor the health of their families, especially the health status of the elderly at any time.8、 Home security system solutionsFamily security is classified as the last category because the order of our main smart home concepts is comfort, entertainment, health, environmental protection and safety. Our main safety is mainly for the safety care and safety communication between families, rather than external safety injuries to families. Of course, this also includes the external security monitoring function, Because family safety is mainly the high-frequency interaction between families, we will improve the sense of experience in this regard.Customizable interactive interfaceThe control interactive interface used by users can be customized. According to user requirements, each interface button element can be enlarged, deformed, resized, simplified, contrast, clarity, etc.Two way audio communicationThe video push and two-way voice dialogue at the outdoor door allow the user to inform the user before the visitor rings the doorbell. The video dialogue can be realized on any screen in the user's home, including iPad. The two-way voice function can be realized through the background music system.CCTV monitoringMonitoring networking involves security and privacy, so we have a closed-circuit television monitoring solution. The control of local camera and video recording function can make users' life more secure.Audio promptYou can set a reminder similar to taking medicine, and broadcast it regularly every day. Users can take medicine on time within the specified time, which is healthy and safe.

Electronic Xinwen Morning Post: Smart Home Detonates MCU Demand, Taiwan's New Samsung Note7 Explodes
Today's Xinwen Morning Post: demand picks up, Sony image sensor will resume full load production; Taiwan accounts for 37% of the imports of integrated circuits from the mainland and Hong Kong; Smart home detonates MCU demand; TSMC's Q3 revenue exceeded the standard and the market value rose again; Microsoft is shutting down its band bracelet production line; In 2020, VR market revenue will reach US $11.2 billion; Taiwan's new version of Note7 first burst; Huawei mate was released in September and November, and heavy black technology will appear.Morning post time|Semiconductor1. Demand picks up, Sony image sensor will resume full productionAccording to a director of Sony subsidiary responsible for chip production, due to the recovery of smartphone demand, last year's inventory can not meet the supply. From October to March next year, the company's image sensors will resume full production. "The business environment of our customers is improving," Yasuhiro Ueda, President of Sony semiconductor manufacturing, which provides sensors for Sony in Kumamoto, southern Japan, said at a news conference on Friday.Sony asked to replace 40% of the image sensors on the market with complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) devices, which can convert light into electronic signals.Many years ago, Sony was defeated in the price competition of consumer electronics products, and sensors became the core of its business recovery. Due to the slowdown of the global smartphone market, Sony was forced to cut its production from October to March next year, but demand has rebounded since then.Hirohiro Ueda said that since the second half of this year, the monthly output has increased, and the total has increased from 70000 to 73000. Sony's five image sensor factories are producing at full capacity. The above figures do not include outsourcing output.He said that the strong market demand for Sony sensors also reflects the company's efforts to diversify its customer base. At the same time, customers have also experienced some ups and downs recently.Sony's customers include apple and Samsung Electronics.Due to the strong sales of Galaxy S7 mobile phones, Samsung's mobile phone profit increased by nearly 50% in the first half of the year, but this momentum has stalled due to the recall of Galaxy note 7. Meanwhile, Apple's iPhone suffered a quarterly sales decline for the first time, but then iPhone 7 sales exceeded expectations."We are less and less dependent on specific customers because China's booming smartphone manufacturers in recent years are becoming our customers," said Yoshihiro Ueda.He also said that due to the impact of a series of earthquake damage earlier this year, the sensor shipment of Kumamoto factory has decreased slightly and has now returned to the pre disaster level.2. Taiwan accounts for 37% of IC imports from the mainland and Hong KongRelevant departments in Taiwan said that in the first August of this year, the mainland's import market share, South Korea ranked first with 9.9%, followed by Japan and Taiwan with 9.6% and 9.5% respectively.In terms of integrated circuits, Taiwan's import market share in the mainland and Hong Kong remained the first, with a share of 35.4% last year, increasing to 37% from January to July this year, while South Korea's share ranked second, decreasing from 25.7% to 24.8%.In the panel part, more than 90% of Taiwan's panels are sold to the mainland and Hong Kong, but the panel import market share in the mainland and Hong Kong lags behind South Korea since the financial tsunami in 2009, retreating to the second place, with a share of 37.1% in 2012 and 31.9% in the first July of this year, while the import share of South Korea remains stable at around 43%.3. Smart home detonates MCU demand, big factories are ready to goThe demand of the new generation of young consumers for quality of life is gradually increasing. Not only does Xiaomi want to develop smart home, ZTE also officially announced the new strategy of smart home in Beijing on the 22nd of this month. The organization predicts that the global smart home equipment and service market will reach US $68 billion by 2018. It is foreseeable that "smart home" will become the mainstream of the market, The rise of smart home has also triggered the rapid rise in the demand for MCU (microcontroller unit).

It is responsible for intelligent control, network link, wireless transmission and man-machine interface interaction system. It is not difficult to see its trace in toys, household appliances and cars.Industrial Internet of things, wearable devices and smart home are the main driving forces of the current microcontroller (MCU) market, and 32-bit is an important field driving the growth of MCU. Although 8-bit still has a place, with the increasing requirements of the Internet of things for data processing capacity, 32-bit MCU is bound to become the mainstream in the market.In fact, 32-bit MCU has played an important role in motor and frequency conversion control, security monitoring, fingerprint identification, touch button and other applications. According to the statistical data of 2015, the global shipment of 32-bit MCU in last year has exceeded the sum of 4 / 8 / 16 bit MCU. It can be seen that with the improvement of the intelligent level of household electrical products and the increase of the demand for man-machine interface and information interaction, 32-bit high-performance applications already have significant advantages.It is undeniable that the growth momentum of MCU market in the future will be driven by "smart home". GfK, the world's largest market research organization, disclosed that 50% of 7000 consumers in seven countries around the world believe that smart home will have an impact on their lives, and among them, Chinese consumers account for the highest proportion, This means that more and more families in China are increasingly interested in high-priced smart appliances. In the future, the price difference between ordinary household appliances and smart appliances is expected to gradually narrow, and this market will have a growth explosive force that can not be underestimated.According to the report of research and markets, the global smart home equipment and service market will grow at a rate of 8% 10% every year in the next five years. With the steady development of China's economy, it is expected that the compound growth rate of China's smart home market scale will exceed 20% in 2016 and 2017, which will bring huge market demand for MCU.With the rapid development of the Internet of things, smart home can grow synchronously. At present, more and more enterprises are increasing their efforts to enter new market fields. Large foreign manufacturers such as Qualcomm, NXP, arm, marwell, ATMEL and Italian French semiconductor, and domestic manufacturers including MediaTek, shengqun, Xintang, Lingyang, Shengquan and Jiuqi are actively attacking the big cake of MCU market.The time sequence will enter October, and also come to the annual highlight of MCU manufacturers - new product release meeting.
