Sensing solutions for smart homes & IoT

Smart home & IoT

Connectivity is a key development which plays an increasingly important role in our daily lives. The benefit of connectivity becomes especially obvious in smart homes. You are at work and unsure if you have closed your window? You want smart home technology to make sure that you have an optimal air quality for a good night's sleep? Or you want an environmental unit to set the temperature and humidity level based on your individual preferences? People can manage their smart homes by for example controlling heating, venting and air conditioning (HVAC) from distance via smartphones or through home automation control. Air quality monitoring, mold detection and climate control using integrated environmental sensors signficantly contribute to people's health and well-being, while intrusion control supports people's peace of mind. In order for these applications to run reliably and accurately, precise and low-power measurement of motion and environmental sensor data is needed. Innovative technologies such as interactive projection enable new applications in smart homes. For example, virtual touchscreens on every surface turn a regular fridge or wardrobe into smart assistants, providing a flexible, intuive user interface to improve convenience and lifestyle. In addition to an intuitive handling, users value a long battery life of their smart home devices, especially for those devices that are unplugged, to avoid frequent charging. Meeting these customer requriements signficantly contributes to the growth of the smart home technology market.
