In 2017, smart locks and smart speakers will become the single product that will dominate the major e-commerce platforms. In the meantime, as smart homes move from the single product era to the scene era, the good wishes of the smart home in science fiction movies begin to show signs of progressively becoming true. However, in 2018, smart home technology iterations are taking place. With the help of brand new consumer scenes and new floor-to-ceiling windows, the explosive growth of mobile Internet and smartphones will be explored and the explosion of the smart home sector will be welcomed. But it still suspense to be solved. Because, the three major diseases that restrict the full application of smart home: network coverage, interoperability and security issues may still be hard to be fundamentally solved in a short period of time.

The maturity of technology and the popularity of a single product, so many smart home practitioners concluded that smart home is about to usher in the explosion of their own moments, and even some guests this explosion point accurate to the second half of 2018. However, the face of smart home is still applauded the status quo, the smart home in the end how long it can be really approached the homes of ordinary people, it is still difficult to have a clear timetable. Because, according to the Smart Home Industry Alliance Preparatory Committee released the same day, “White Paper on China’s smart home improvement applications,” shows that the three major chronic diseases that restrict the popularization of smart home, is still difficult to be fundamentally resolved within a short period of time.

Network coverage

If a family does not have complete signal coverage, then talk about what intelligence? At the same time, home network coverage solutions require a very professional, different home space, the size of the area, the different layout of the building space, resulting in completely different degree of network signal coverage and attenuation. This means that consumers are hard-pressed to evaluate and own a smart home solution.


Conference site, whether it is good home furniture, chairman of Yuk Chow, or Wang Ye, vice president of Haier Home Appliances Industry Group, or Hai Kang Fluorite CEO Chiang Kai-shek both invariably stressed the importance of single product interoperability. In Wang Ye’s view, the interoperability of a single product is not in itself a technical issue, but a process of commercial reconstruction, which in the final analysis is a matter of commercial interest. Therefore, it is not easy to push high-quality products, open platforms and high-quality services to the C-side.

Safe question

In the field of Internet of Things, because the entire smart home landing process also belongs to the primary stage, as the industry advances, it must face and solve a security issue. In the entire IoT landing process, the security vulnerabilities than before the Internet still much more, but the impact of security incidents than in the past may be a computer virus invasion is much worse.

“Gas robotic arm was compromised, gas poisoning is a very serious matter, and the sound and light involved, these things are invaded, controlled, the impact on our users is very serious. How to solve this problem?” Liang home Wu Limin, general manager of the Smart Home Center, believes that security issues include data privacy, process security operations and management, and key authentication and authentication that require systemically multi-vendor platforms including network operations.

2018 smart home will show four trends

From smart home, to smart family, and then to smart home decoration, there is a new technology behind the concept of conversion iteration and the evolution of consumer scenarios, but also a new window was born. Zhou Jun, secretary general of China’s Smart Home Industry Alliance, pointed out that the PK of the smart home ecology in 2018 will show the following four major trends:

  1. The ecological battle for smart homes will extend from the product internet to the full platform

“What is the whole platform? Neither technical platform, nor the so-called giants ecological platform, I think it is the full platform for sales channels.” In the view of the Army, such as smart locks, intelligent bathroom integrated system hardware building materials Industry began to move toward intelligent, not only means that the category of smart home products Internet cooperation has become more, the original smart home consumption path will change dramatically.

  1. Intelligent single product will be optimized

Zhou Jun believes that with the maturity and popularity of smart home, the optimization and improvement of a single product will be the future of smart home force in the other direction. Taking a smart lock as an example, what is needed for the next generation of smart locks and what software control interfaces, technology upgrades, and big data feedback can make future smart locks even better for the experience.

  1. Content interaction and smart home integration

In smartphones and other explosive products, driven by 2018 will usher in a major year of audio copyright benefits. Because from the perspective of the long-term development of smart home, only the content of the interaction, the user is the real strong interaction.

360°omnidirectional high gain antenna of Wireless USB WiFi Network Adapter guarantees high RF power (16DBm on 2.4GHz & 13DBm on 5GHz), allowing you to pick up wireless signals from long distance. Flexible antenna and Beam forming+ technology help boost speed, range and reliability.
