“Home Automation Market to Witness Robust Growth and Reach $2.4 Billion by 2010” - According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA).
Home automation is the residential extension of building automation. It is the automation of the home, housework or household activities to create a smart home or intelligent home.
Home automation makes use of technology for centralized control of lightings, motorized curtains, blinds, air-conditioners and electrical appliances. Ideally it should also integrates with other systems, such as security system, CCTV, audio-video ( AV ) system, home entertainment system, card access control system, garden watering system and possibly pet feeding system to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home automation for elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.
One of the key issues to be addressed by the market is cost. Traditional implementation of a smart home is to lay network cables in the house to link all these home devices and systems together. Common wired technologies are EIB system, C-Bus system and Power Line Communication (PLC) system. As bandwidth rules the multimedia, networking technologies are very expensive. The other issue is the huge amount of time involved in the planning, installation and user training.
But today, Anjels, a Singapore company, pioneered the use of advanced RF technology (similar to ZigBee technology) in intelligent home in 2003. It has successfully developed a true wireless home automation system integrated with wireless secuirty system. Anjels’ solution makes high-end home automation systems available at an affordable price to all types of households and offices.
With the advent of smart phones and high-speed broadband to the home, Anjels wireless home automation system enables smart home owners centralized control as well as remote control anywhere and anytime through smart devices such as iPhone, iPad and Android smart devices.
Integral to the Anjels wireless system is the Smart Green System. It consists of different types of wireless sensors such as occupancy sensor, motion sensor, ambient light sensor, temperature sensors and microwave sensor to control energy usage. The system is able to monitor the energy consumption of each or all devices and control energy usage not only through motion, but also through the extremely flexible and versatile scheduling and timer functions of the system.
Anjels Smart Green System makes implementation of Green Office and Green Building simple and fuss-free. No additional wiring is needed and this eliminates messy hacking of walls and ceilings.
The robust growth of home automation market presents huge opportunity to Anjels as a developer and principal manufacturer of wireless home automation system. Full ownership of the Intellectual Property Rights to the system enables Anjels to collaborate with technology partners to integrate its system with door access system and video intercom system. At the same time, Anjels’ wireless technology is used by OEM partners in the industry. With an established international network of distribution partners in South-East Asia, Greater China, Middle East, USA and even African continent, Anjels is poised for tremendous growth to lead the home automation market.
