>> IoT AND SMART HOME INTEGRATION - POLYAIRE AIRTOUCH
It is important that anyone in a specific industry must eat their own dog food.
As a number of my close friends know, I am building a house in cosy town of
in Western Australia. It is vital, especially if I want to put IoT to
practical use in my own home - that my technological decisions are good ones.
As part of the building process, I was presented with a number of
options for the management of climate control (heating/cooling).
The unit I selected is the
solution that offers total control of the climate control in a home
with up to 16 different zones and the ability to remotely control it form
a mobile device (iOS or
Android), PC with a web browser and the
touch screen control panel.
Building your own home from a clean slate is always an exciting opportunity -
but being able to put an infrastructure in place that can allow for much
more "smart home" technology to be added is simply the sweet icing that is
placed on the cake that you get to eat.
It should be quite simple to reverse engineer the HTTP protocols used
by the various applications to integrate an automated solution that
could be connected to various other sensors on the property or even
external sensors that monitor my where abouts.
The opportunities are endless - motion and temperature sensors could
trigger setting various fan speeds (10% increments) and operating cycle
periods, a GPS sensor in my car could detect when I am almost home
and start warming or cooling the house.
There are so many things I could do with the lighting, locks and surveillance
solutions - not only to be energy efficient but also to show exactly how
one target vertical of IoT can be integrated into our every day lives with
simple modification to basic technology foundations.
Of course, I definitely will not overlook any security aspects with such
