Smart air conditioners (AC) help the user monitor and control the AC from a remote location. Basically, it’s connected with the Internet of things (IoT) hardware, and it controls the air conditioner via infrared, just like its remote function. The status of the air conditioners is communicated to the user interface, such as a mobile app via cloud technology. IoT-enabled air conditioners can be powered on or off automatically by integrating GPS features into the hardware. This is enabled by defining a geographical location for the auto power feature.
Whenever the user enters or exits the defined boundary with the GPS integrated smartphone, the hardware interacts with the AC via WiFi to automatically power up or off the appliance. The users can change the settings of smart air conditioners from their mobile applications as well. These smart air conditioners enable users to personalize the operations effectively by predefining user settings at desired levels and enabling them remotely.
IoT Improves Machines
IoT has helped add smartness to air conditioners and devices, evolving them into sophisticated, advanced, and intelligent pieces of machines. Apart from increasing comfort and personalization benefits, IoT improves machine maintenance efficiency, lowering maintenance costs as it enables predictive maintenance. This could also help service providers to increase productivity by sending prior information on the breakdown. It also gives additional benefits, such as various usage statistics to the user. It’ll allow the user to monitor the performance of the smart air conditioners: runtime, usage, power consumption patterns, and many others. IoT has been disrupting our day-to-day activities, and there’s barely any use case that’s left untouched.
IoT is a grid of interconnected devices embedded with sensors, processors, networking hardware to collect, process, and transmit data to perform desired operations automatically. IoT has evolved due to various technologies, such as real-time analytics and artificial intelligence, backed by affordable networking protocols. This technology has led traditional devices to process and act, thereby making them intelligent ones. This increasing use of IoT-enabled devices is creating a larger technology market. As predicted by several experts, the Internet of Things would transform into the Intelligence of Things soon as the global IoT market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.68% between 2019 and 2026 to reach $1.3T 2026.
Dawn of Cloud Data Management
Cloud data management in large-scale IoT applications is anticipated to accelerate market growth. The most interesting feature it has brought is the IoT remote device life cycle management, which plays a crucial role in enabling a 360-degree data view of the device infrastructure. Since the air conditioners can store their information on the cloud, it can be extracted by the AC whenever the administrator or the owner needs it. The number of IoT devices is increasing, and AC is one such beneficiary of IoT innovation empowered to transfer data over the network without human aid.
