Smart Home Solution PoC

Project Overview

Development of a flexible, easily scalable and cost-effective B2B solution PoC for smart home, office or building, that allows for quick implementation and elimination of hardware vendor-lock in.

Project Type

In-house R&D project

Challenges Challenges

  • High cost of ready made smart home platforms
  • Hardware vendor lock-in
  • Limited scalability, time-consuming scaling

Technical Highlights Technical Highlights

  • Solution based on OpenHAB2, a basic open source smart home platform
  • 10+ various connected devices (from radiator and air conditioner to lights and TV)
  • Use of a universal remote control mechanism
  • One button to disable all devices
  • Possibility of сustom driver implementation for devices
  • Dashboards based on the available functionality (supporting mobile devices)

Dashboard 1. Energy consumption

 

Dashboard 2. Comfort control
