Home Controller is a WiFi hub for the smart home devices, which connects them to the cloud server. It has an Ethernet port to connect with the home WLAN. It authenticates and registers all the devices connected through its own isolated private WLAN. Home controller runs in two modes; offline and online.
The salient feature of home controller is its local rule engine that automates the switches in real-time without requiring connection to the cloud server. Our WiFi sensors box allows users to configure multiple sensor-based rules at the server which are pushed at the home controller during online mode. Home controller then performs switches automation transparently and in real-time without being affected by the Internet service.
Switch box is a WiFi device that securely connects with the WiFi access point of home controller. The device is authenticated and registered by the home controller before it is allowed to connect with the smart home system.
Our smart sensors box also connects with the home controller over its WiFi network. It can have maximum of four sensors on board while the light and temperature sensors are always built-in. The other two sensors are optional and packaged as different models, such as humidity, motion, smoke and gas and customized according to the nature of installation space. Different models of sensors box contains different sensors. Kitchen sensors box contain light, temperature, gas and smoke sensors while rooms model has light, temperature, motion and humidity sensor. Sensors reading are published at server after three minutes but it is configurable according to user settings. The sensor also contains chargeable battery as a backup which can run the device for more than a week. It can be mounted anywhere in the installation space. The device reports motion to home controller in real-time, which processes it for switches rules and also forward it to cloud server for further processing.
Power Switch is a WiFi smart plug device used to connect heavy load up to 15A, such as air-conditioners, heaters, motors, water pumps, electrical ovens, etc. The device is also authenticated and registered at the home controller when it boots up. It has three key features; real-time energy metering, scheduling and temperature sensor based control. In real-time energy metering, it sends real-time energy usage of the load in kWh after every three (3) minutes at the server but keeps accumulating the total usage on board until the reading is reset by the user. User can program it to set its monthly reset metering day to calculate the monthly energy units of the load consumed. For instance, user can set the metering day “1” to start metering on every 1st of the month until the end of month. The second key feature is scheduling that allows programming the device for multiple timers to turn ON or turn OFF the loads at user defined schedules. Third, the smart plug has built in temperature sensor which can be used to control the user environment temperature when the load is AC or Heater. User can program the device to set ON and OFF temperature value and the load is automatically turned ON and OFF according to user temperature settings. The last and very important feature is its ability to operate as standalone device when there is no home controller installed at home. Our Smart Plug App can be used to operate this smart switch standalone without buying the complete smart home solution. It can be configured to connect with your home WLAN and therefore can connect to our cloud server for remote access.
