What if all the devices in your life could connect to the Internet? Not just computers and smartphones, but everything: lights, air-conditions, doors, curtains, coffee machines, water heaters, cooking utensils, you name it. And what if those devices could all communicate, send you information, and take your commands? It's not science fiction; it's the Internet of Things (IoT), and it's a key component of home automation and smart homes.
We have all been talking about IoT entering our lives. But IoT will be entering our homes first and the process has already started. Smart homes, at least for now, mean a central controller that lets you switch on and off a lot of appliances in the house. But for that the appliances need to be smart too and retrofitting old homes with this new technology can be a real pain. But is there an easier, more affordable way to make your home smart? Maybe there is.
Oakter Smart Home
The Okater Smart Home is essentially a starter kit, but one where you can add on more units to. The kit comes with 2 smart plugs, one 6 amp and the other 16 amp, as well as a hub, which connects to the Wi-Fi in your home. The 6 amp one is ideal for small appliances and mobile phone chargers, while the 16 amp plug is ideal for running things that consume more power like an AC or water heater. You also need to download the Oakter app in iOS or Android to get this entire rig working.
Oakter custom applications
We at En-spark are keen in finding innovative solutions in automation. Some of the Oakter based applications we have implemented:
Let your living room cool down even before you reach home by turning on your Air-condition at your chosen temperature and mode of operation.
When you go to bed, automate your Air-condition to turn off after a certain time and let your ceiling or wall fan be automatically turned on for the rest of the night. Save on precious energy bills without interrupting your good night sleep.
With our easy to install and cost effective water tank monitor, you can control your water pump from your mobile app. Depending on your requirement you would get an audio and visual alerts of the water level in your tank.
Turn your balcony, garden, or outdoor lights on or off while you are away from home. Or schedule the lights to turn on and off automatically.
Vacations are something we all look forward to, but the thoughts of leaving favourite indoor and outdoor plants dry and starving is matter of concern. With Oakter its easy to feed your plants while you are away from home.
By having complete control over your lights and curtains over the cloud, you could mimic your presence even when you are on a vacation, thus being safe by driving any intruders away.
Apart from these applications we would love to hear how you would use Oakter to make your home smarter.
