According to a study by Parks Associates, 75 percent of consumers who planned to buy a new smart home device said it was essential that their new device be interoperable with their existing devices.
With consumers buying from various brand ecosystems, the demand for product interoperability carries significant importance. The rapid increase in consumer adoption of smart home products is further driving expectations that these devices work together seamlessly.
Most homes in the Western world now count over 500 connected devices, replacing all traditional electronic items, previously used in homes. The creation of a software-based framework for integration presented a challenge.
While a typical smart home will house various devices from multiple brands. Each having its own specific apps for controlling the respective device. Filling this gap in the market, called for an app that offers universal smart controls, it would have a radical effect on how consumers invest in smart home devices.
What is a Smart Home Management System?
A consumer-focused device management platform, enabling its user to monitor and manage all IoT devices. Allowing smart devices to communicate and exchange data while being governed by third-party software.
What does this mean for the consumer?
The end-users are provided with a simple and consistent interface through which multiple smart devices can be operated.
