Smart Homes and the true power they can unleash for you to have an AI-based best friend
USI is one of the global leaders of SiP Wi-Fi Module Design and Manufacturing; hence we want to enlighten the budding designers and developers of tomorrow about every tiny detail related to SiP Wi-Fi modules and intelligent homes. So, if you have questions related to what is SiP Wi-Fi Module in the smart home? Or what are Solutions does Wi-Fi SiP Module included? Then you are in for a ride as we are here to answer all your queries one by one.
Before we indulge in smart home, let us talk about what SiP or system in a package or system-in-package is multiple integrated circuits (ICs) inside a single chip carrier package and which performs all the functions of an electronic device which is usually used inside smart devices like music players, mobile phones, home appliances, etc.
In simple words, a smart home can be remotely controlled by a portable device such as a smartphone or a tablet, using which a home equipped with smart devices or appliances such as heating, lighting, AC, and other devices can be controlled without any hassle and just through the internet.
What are Smart Homes and how does it work?
Smart Homes is a convenient and easily accessible setup where devices and appliances can be remotely controlled, and that too automatically! How, if you may ask? The answer is easy as all of this is done using a networked device or a mobile with an internet connection. This technology is also known as home automation, and it provides the owners' convenience, comfort, safety, security, and energy efficiency, and that too using a smart device.
Efficiency and safety are the main reasons behind the drastic increase in smart home technology. These appliances are self-learning with their skills and memory settings. They can learn the homeowners' schedule and adjust as needed. And they also come with the following benefits: cost-effectiveness, climate-friendly, etc.
As per Statista.com, "The global smart home market or industry was valued at about $24 billion in 2016. The said figure is expected to grow substantially as many people start to utilize smart home technology to the extent of about $53.5 billion by 2022." Video-based entertainment is expected to be the most significant part of home automation technology, followed by home monitoring and security services. Smart speaker technology has already successfully entered the U.S. market, where roughly 31% of households use a device like the Amazon Echo (Alexa) or Google Nest (Google Homes).
Advantages of Smart Homes
Smart homes are connected to a portable device carried by the homeowners using SiP Wi-Fi Module to get effortless updates and notifications about their devices. Users can control the lighting and color of illumination using their phones or tablets. Besides, smart doorbells keep the user informed visiting their home when they are not at home. Smart homes are convenient and easy to handle as only one smart device and a functional internet connection control everything.
One more advantage of a smart home is that it can keep your home extra safe and secure from robbers and burglars using the surveillance cameras used in your house which are also known as IP cameras or closed-circuit cameras. Closed-circuit cameras connect over the internet and stream to users' phones or any other portable device over a Wi-Fi connection. CCTV cameras, closed-circuit cameras, stream through wireless or wired cameras links to the Wi-Fi allowing the user to look out for suspicious activities using the live footage provided.
Disadvantages of Smart Homes
Despite smart homes being convenient, easy to handle, and cost-effective, they can still have security patch issues that experienced hackers can make use it to access one appliance and hack the entire system, making it unsafe. Thus, only trusted devices should be added.
Leading Capabilities in the Industry
An increasing number of smart devices are shrinking in size and Wi-Fi connectivity has become a default feature, driving the industry to grow exponentially with each introduction of the next generation Wi-Fi standard. Along with the process of our miniaturization, USI Technology coverage from 2.4GHz/5GHz expanding to 6Ghz, 60GHz, and Sub-GHz. In recent years, USI's patented manufacturing processes have enabled the company to apply its miniaturization technology on a wide portfolio of SiP Wi-Fi modules designed to reduce power consumption and improve product performance. USI's solutions help simplify and increase the reliability of customers' product design, resulting in accelerated time-to-market and reduction in development costs.
