A smart home is a concept of interconnected household environments that give their residents an unprecedented level of comfort and control, making life easier, safer and more convenient. Based on the Internet of Things (IoT), the smart home system links all digital devices and appliances in one ecosystem. It frequently goes way beyond simple automation, delivering unmatched personalized experiences.
Our client came up with the idea of a smart home app development solution that could be scaled seamlessly. Although they had a vast pool of skilled developers within IT departments, the customer approached Innowise Group since our company has a proven record of successful IoT projects.
Smart lighting control system
We began by assembling the house’s centralized lighting control system. Besides configuring different regimes of lighting, our project team developed smart IoT-related features that allowed for immense customization based on individual preferences. Thus, our vetted developers introduced use case scenarios for smart lights that included
Remote kitchen control
Then, we used smart home capabilities to make the cooking process safer and more convenient. Firstly, we configured smart features for refrigerators. Our seasoned team linked sensor nodes with the fridge’s screen so that cameras inside let residents see food left over. Moreover, due to AI, smart fridges suggest recipes and dishes based on users’ taste preferences, create weekly meal plans, make a shopping list, and even get groceries delivered. Also, our project team implemented a voice assistant that can report on the weather, give brief news, play music, and manage other smart appliances with a voice command.
Additionally, Innowise Group configured smart kitchen features that included
Bathroom and shower control system
As for the bathrooms, advanced IoT technologies allow for cutting on extra water consumption. To achieve this, we configured
Home automation security system
As for home safety, we implemented sensor nodes that detect potential threats, immediately notify residents of any overlooked processes, and then trigger necessary actions to prevent them. Additionally, a smart security system allows for
In essence, the IoT app collects data about the way the household works, processes it and shows the homeowner the most significant insights on a daily basis. Further, the app suggests certain actions (e.g., time to switch on/off lights given previous experience, etc.) based on this information. After the previous modules are fully implemented and deployed, the customer will decide whether to develop subsequent modules.
Initially, Innowise Group’s business analyst was assigned to elicit tech requirements and evaluate the home automation app’s development feasibility. Our BA developed a backlog, prioritized the tasks based on urgency and importance, and created a roadmap with milestones to be reached.
The project was managed based on the Scrum methodology, with tasks tracking and exchanging information via Jira and Slack, respectively.
As for the tech stack, we opted for .NET server-side development and Angular for the front end. The key challenge was to integrate the platform with third-party libraries smoothly. So, we used RabbitMQ to ensure the app’s processing without data losses. The solution we launched complies with telemetry standards and EU regulations.
Currently, our team is focused on developing a full-fledged mobile application that enables residents to manage smart home facilities remotely. Apart from this, we provide software maintenance, fix minor bugs and enhance the solution’s functionality.
As a result, Innowise Group released a smart home app development solution that boasts the following advantages:
