Current user misconceptions about the smart home industry

Myth # 1: There is no difference between wired and wireless connections

Given the poor information brought by users who do not understand the technology, some dealers use wired technology in some key links to reduce the cost and construction complexity. When questioned, they deceive consumers by saying there is no difference between wired and wireless connections, but the connection method is different, and wired connections are more reliable.

But isn’t there a difference between wired and wireless connections?

The answer is no. The old smart home uses wired technology, which has complex wiring and expensive structure, terrible user experience, and has been in the phase of obsolescence.

The smart home of the new generation of IoT technology combines wireless sensing technology with the current hottest mobile Internet technology and uses the smart terminal remote control to significantly improve the comfort of the entire user experience. At the same time, it has no wiring, strong mobility is easy to upgrade, and other characteristics are the mainstream of the current market. So consumers should not fall for the lie that there is no difference between wired and wireless connections.

Therefore, consumers must look for accurate wireless technology when choosing, and ZigBee-based wireless sensor technology is the most mature and stable technology at present.

Myth 2: intelligent home appliances are equal to intelligent home

Many home appliance manufacturers play intelligent household brands deliberately when marketing, putting forward the concept of “intelligent home appliance is equal to intelligent household” to promote consumption.

This is a big misunderstanding. Smart home appliances are still home appliances in essence; they are only components of innovative home platforms, intelligent terminals (such as washing machines, refrigerators, etc.), or control platforms (such as smart TVs). We need to distinguish.

An intelligent home is a platform. It is a smart control system. All household appliances and door and window switches can be controlled remotely to achieve a brilliant application experience on this platform. Various intelligent controls can be executed according to the user’s custom settings. This is the natural smart home.

If you don’t know it, it’s easy to be tricked by some appliance manufacturers. When consumers choose products and brands, it must not be some home appliance manufacturers “intelligent,” a word confused and misleading.

Mistake area three: intelligent control is equal to intelligent household

“Artificial intelligence” is a very hot word at the moment, especially with the substantial rise of the mobile Internet. It seems that all products now have to be associated with intelligence, or they are not fashionable enough. Especially in intelligent homes, some enterprises to the concept of intelligent control to define intelligent homes. This has led some consumers to believe that it is a smart home as long as intelligent controls are implemented.

In fact, this is also one-sided. A smart home needs intelligent control, but intelligent control alone is not enough to constitute a smart home. On the one hand, smart home also includes security systems. On the other hand, smart home control methods are more diversified and convenient. Users can control it remotely from mobile devices such as pads and iPhones.

The most basic requirement of the intelligence we need is to effectively solve our actual needs and use convenient, fast human experience.

Therefore, when users choose intelligent devices, they must go to the experience center for on-site investigation and experience and experience themselves. Only a product that suits them is good.

Consumers who want to install intelligent home systems seek a high quality of life enjoyment. Therefore, they must be aware of these common misconceptions before choosing bright decorations to avoid wasting money.
