What is Needed for a Smart Home

With the in-depth application of Internet of Things technology in smart cities, more and more owners are willing to experience smart homes with a sense of technology. The biggest highlight of smart home is the effective use of information technology, and wireless smart home technology is inseparable from it: WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, etc. In this article, SKYLAB simply analyzes what the IoT smart home needs from the application of WiFi module and Bluetooth module in smart home equipment.

Smart home connects various devices in the home (such as audio and video equipment, lighting system, curtain control, air conditioning control, security system, digital cinema system, audio and video server, video cabinet system, network home appliances, etc.) through the Internet of Things technology to provide Home appliance control, lighting control, telephone remote control, indoor and outdoor remote control, anti-theft alarm, environmental monitoring, HVAC control, infrared forwarding and programmable timing control and other functions and methods.

SKYLAB has extracted a key point: convenience. Smart home provides users with an extremely convenient life service experience through the Internet of Things technology. The control of smart home devices can be achieved through mobile phones. In short, the intelligent control of smart home devices requires a large amount of data to support, and the collection and transmission of these data will be applied to a large number of IoT wireless modules, such as IoT WiFi modules, BLE Bluetooth modules, etc. In order to meet the application requirements of wireless modules in the smart home field, SKYLAB has launched a variety of high-performance Internet of Things WiFi modules and low-power Bluetooth modules and supporting wireless solutions.

The WiFi solution has great advantages in IoT smart home applications. A single module can be connected to the network by relying on a router, which has obvious advantages. In response to the low power consumption requirements of smart products and home appliances, SKYLAB also launched a low-power IoT WiFi module WG219 based on ESP8266 , Highly integrated, support serial port transparent transmission, provide a complete solution for customer equipment to achieve WiFi networking and rapid application development. It is especially suitable for smart rice cookers, smart air conditioners, smart lights and other traditional furniture to enter the network.

The advantage of the Bluetooth solution lies in its low power consumption and simple interaction with the mobile phone.

The current advantages of Bluetooth are power consumption and easy interaction with mobile phones, while the disadvantage is that devices cannot independently access the network. In response to the needs of the smart home market for long-distance transmission and networking control, SKYLAB also launched the 5.0 Bluetooth module SKB501 based on Nordic52840, which has good performance, low power consumption, high receiving sensitivity, long transmission distance, and supports SPI/UART/TWI communication protocols. , Small package and other advantages. The product can be better embedded in the customer's product, and at the same time meet the customer's demand for rapid programming of Bluetooth products again. It is especially suitable for products that require power consumption and require direct interaction with mobile phones, such as smart door locks, smart scales, smart toothbrushes, Mesh light control, smart lighting, and smart buildings.

With the help of IoT WiFi module and BLE Bluetooth module, data intercommunication is realized, and information technology is used to realize prediction and perception during the operation of smart home devices. It meets the data needs of smart homes. Users can easily control smart home devices through mobile phones. Users living in smart homes will enjoy an extremely convenient life service experience.
