Home Automation is as big of a revolution today as mobiles were in the late 90s. It enables people to control their home appliances through a smart adapter which acts as an interface.
This concept has been around for quite a while, but bulky sets and hefty rewiring made it less popular to masses. And just like how the breakthrough in the mobile industry came with smartphones, the increasing popularity of home automation devices can be attributed smaller and smarter systems.
Leaf Technologies — A Glimpse into Users’ Tryst with Home Automation
Leaf Technologies, a company that has pioneered home automation segment in India, has seen a huge success. In less than 9 months, products made by Leaf Technologies have been sold to users across 22 top cities in India. As with any new technology, there were critics who dubbed the entire concept of home automation as extravagant. But, the criticism has since condensed — owing to the numerous benefits that such systems offer.
Recently, Leaf Technologies opened their shops and sold over 2,000 kits in this five-day campaign. This, combined with their success in sales from past 9 months, proves one thing — Home Automation is the fad of this decade. In fact, there are many companies which have rolled out smart automation kits. However, they have managed to achieve limited success – as most of them failed to roll out a one-stop home automation solution.
Leaf Technology Has Disrupted India’s IoT (Internet of Things) Market
The concept of smart devices is based on Internet of Things, whereby devices act as identifiers and have a unique characteristic. This allows devices to interact with each other. Since devices, such as fans and television, have different protocols for interaction, the automation kit comes with an Adapter and switchboard modules which interact with each other through a single protocol – Bluetooth. This enables Air to interact with various devices and control it automatically upon configuration.
It isn’t just about Internet of things. Air Adapter is smart. It can record user interaction, and can make automatic adjustments based on that. One great thing about such systems is that they are simple to configure and easy to use. Meaning, one doesn’t have to train systems; they are smart enough to train by themselves, bringing machine learning right into our homes.
In just a span of 2 years since its inception, Leaf Technologies has taken a lead in India’s IoT market and has provided users with the best of both design and technology.
Features, Design, and Versatility: The Three Pillars of Air’s success.
Currently, Leaf sells Air starter kit from their website which can control up to 12 devices in a single room— the most among many other home automation systems. Air can also be further customized according to user’s’ requirements, for a complete home, which enables them to control many more devices. It also allows scheduling of appliances.
The market currently is inundated with home automation systems but Leaf has an edge over them by providing an intelligent learning smart home. Some popular features in automation systems include sensors like temperature, humidity, brightness and motion.
Not all home automation kits come with all these four sensors; notably — humidity and brightness. A lesser number of relevant sensors translates to a lesser degree of automation. For instance, the required temperature in high humidity conditions can be different than the one needed at the time of dry weather conditions. This also alerts you whenever there is any intrusion at the place where it is installed. Yes, a few of the other home automation kits can work with external humidity and brightness sensors, but that makes the entire set-up too complicated.
Devices that can interact with Air can be controlled through a mobile app. This doesn’t impact your physical switches — they remain intact as air synchronizes with your physical switches. Air App allows users to control devices even if there is a disruption in internet services — as it can utilize local area network within the premises of the home.
Getting Air Smart Automation Kit For Your Home
Leaf Technologies has reportedly sold all its stocked home automation units twice. Therefore, the company has rolled out a priority list. This priority list is similar to a waitlist, wherein the users who register will be given priority in buying Air. In other words, due to the excessive demand, you probably won’t find them in stock. Hence, signing up for the priority list might be your only chance to buy them as and when Leaf rolls out the next batch of Air home automation starter kit.
If you are interested in buying one of these kits for your home, then you can visit their website, and sign up for next batch of devices here.
