How Smart Home Evolves into Smart Home

With the emergence of smart cities and smart travel, the smart home has become a "smart family". Single product intelligence is not enough, and the whole house intelligence and humanized care are more valued by the industry.

For enterprises with smart families, there is still a long way to go before they can really play with smart families. Intelligent families are not only gimmicks, but also innovative products that are just needed. With landable services as guarantee, the popularization of smart families can enter the stage of substantive landing.

The concept of smart home, from Bill Gates'mansion, has been more than 20 years. Unlike the popular new fields of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, smart home is "prosperous and never failing", and every year some new gimmicks appear.


With the emergence of smart cities and smart travel, smart home has become a "smart family". Single product intelligence is not enough, and the whole house intelligence and humanized care are more valued by the industry. On the market side, it is predicted that by 2020, the size of the smart market will exceed 400 billion US dollars, and the potential market size of China's smart family will be about 5.8 trillion yuan, with huge development space. From non-intelligent single products to multi-device interconnection, to today's interconnection of all things, the future of smart families will be infinitely possible.


In the terminal era, the single product is Wang from the early concept to the product landing, which belongs to a mature industry in many industries of smart home. Early smart home still belongs to the terminal era, single product is king, and it belongs to single point connection with users. There is a lack of interoperability between devices, data and application connectivity. The smart home product market mainly stays in the two areas of security alarm and intelligent control, and the product category is limited.


The research and development of related products of smart home system are mostly based on high and new technology, with fast updating and high risk. Many enterprises are unwilling and do not have enough funds to invest in research and development. Most users are not aware of the convenience of smart home. Among the people who pay attention to smart home, they pay more attention to the security, property, home service and other functions that are closely related to their daily life, while they feel too far away from some advanced control functions, such as smart home appliances.


In the era of interconnection, smart home in the second stage of sharing and interconnection among multiple devices has made great progress compared with the first stage, which is manifested in the fact that applications can be moved across screens and terminals, the trend of scene-based devices is obvious, and to a certain extent, it helps users to establish their habits of use, such as the connection and projection of mobile phones and television, in this era. Platform and connection protocol based interconnection have emerged, laying the foundation for the maturity of smart families.


Generally speaking, a complete smart home product line needs to include cloud platform, home network environment, service robots and smart home. The integration of products and services of cloud computing and development capabilities, hardware manufacturing capabilities and basic resources capabilities are very high, which leads to the third stage of smart home, that is, smart home in the era of artificial intelligence.


In the era of artificial intelligence, with the integration and development of intelligent terminals, Internet technology and communication technology and the upgrading of service industry, the smart home industry has developed rapidly. The state has identified the smart home industry as a strategic emerging industry with emphasis on development. The smart home market is regarded as the next blue sea and "tuyere". Including BAT and other Internet giants, telecom operators have been involved in the layout of smart families.


In the segment market, the enterprises with accumulated technology may eventually stand out. Intelligent hardware products as the entrance, through the transformation from traditional basic communication hardware to smart home, provide new ideas and models for other smart home enterprises.


Millet's smart home ecosphere is a good one in the industry. In 2014, under the temptation of equity investment in millet, a team represented by purple rice, Huami and Zhimi emerged. In smart home, accessories and other fields, these manufacturers adopted millet protocol and formed the primitive ecology of millet smart home by accessing smart modules. Subsequently, the product of millet ecological chain blowout, today, millet has become the world's largest Internet of Things intelligent equipment enterprises.


Intelligent family still has a long way to go in the age of intelligence. Intelligent family industry is ready to develop. There are no technical barriers to the interconnection of all things. Big data and artificial intelligence have been applied maturely. Industrial ecology has also moved from concept to landing stage. There are numerous enterprises in this industry, but most of them are in the stage of "concept first, technology not moving". Some of them still need attention.
The first is the problem of "lack of core". Domestic smart home chips are mainly occupied by foreign brands, such as Marvell provides a full range of smart home chip solutions, including Wi-Fi microcontroller IoT platform, family interconnection G.hn chipset, etc. Other mainstream chipmakers, such as Rufa Semiconductor, Silicon Labs, Samsung and Qualcomm, have also introduced corresponding smart home chip solutions. ZTE has taught a profound lesson for the domestic science and technology industry. In the future, we hope that there will be a real "China Core" in the industry.


In addition to the lack of chip technology, there are still some problems in the industry, such as inadequate innovation of hardware products, immature platform and no landing of services. In addition, product homogeneity is serious and can not achieve real "intelligence", industry standards are not uniform, products can not be interconnected, cumbersome operation, poor experience, are also the current pain points of smart home industry.


The key to solve the problem lies in the complete ecological foundation of the whole industry chain and the strong ability of technology research and development. For the former, the millet which has been in the smart hardware market for many years and has a considerable scale is the proof. From chips to all kinds of smart hardware products, millet can be seen at present, while the giants such as Google and Samsung have stepped in one after another. Integrating the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain also proves that the management of smart family industry needs strong technical support.


For enterprises with smart families, there is still a long way to go if they want to really play with smart families. Intelligent families are not only gimmicks, but also innovative products that are just needed. With landable services as guarantee, the popularization of smart families can enter the stage of substantive landing. Family is the core of smart family. The core of smart family is "family". Only by realizing information interconnection and intelligent control within family, family and community, family and society, and providing complete family-oriented comprehensive application and comfortable, safe and convenient family life services, can it truly develop. Now the value of "smart family".
