Internet of Things (IoT) has been disrupting our day-to-day activities and there’s barely any use case that’s left untouched. IoT is a grid of interconnected devices that are embedded with sensors, processors, networking hardware to collect, process, and transmit data to perform desired operations automatically. IoT has evolved due to the convergence of various technologies, such as real-time analytics and artificial intelligence, backed by affordable networking protocols.
This technology has led traditional devices to process and act, thereby making them intelligent ones. This increasing use of IoT enabled devices is creating a larger market for technology. As predicted by several experts, the Internet of Things would transform into the Intelligence of Things soon. As the global IoT market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.68% between 2019 and 2026 to reach $1.3 Tn. by 2026.
Smart Air Conditioners
IoT has helped to add smartness to devices and evolving them into sophisticated, advanced, and intelligent pieces of machines. A smart air conditioner (AC) is one such that helps the user to monitor and control the AC from a remote location. Basically, it’s connected with IoT hardware and it controls the air conditioner via infrared just like its remote function. The status of the air conditioner is communicated to the user interface such as a mobile app via cloud technology.
The IoT enabled air conditioner can be powered on or off automatically by integrating GPS features into the hardware. This is enabled by defining a geographical location for auto power feature and whenever the user enters or exits the defined boundary with the GPS integrated smartphone, the hardware interacts with the AC via WiFi to power up or off the appliance automatically. The users can change the settings of the air conditioners from their mobile applications as well. These smart air conditioners also enable users to personalize the operations effectively by predefining user settings at desired levels and enabling them remotely.
Apart from increasing comfort and personalization benefits, IoT improves machine maintenance efficiency, lowering the maintenance cost as it enables predictive maintenance facilitates. This could also help service providers to increase productivity by sending prior information on the breakdown. It also gives additional benefits, such as various usage statistics to the user. It’ll allow the user to monitor the performance of the air conditioners: runtime, usage, power consumption patterns, and many others.
Dawn of Cloud Data Management
The cloud data management in large scale IoT applications is anticipated to accelerate market growth. The most interesting feature it has brought is the IoT remote device life cycle management, which plays a crucial role in enabling a 360-degree data view of the device infrastructure. Since the air conditioners can store their information on the cloud, it can be extracted by the AC whenever the administrator or the owner needs it. The number of IoT devices is increasing and AC is one such beneficiary of IoT innovation which is empowered to transfer data over the network without human aid.
