Smart Home

There’s no place like the Smart Home. As more and more consumer connected devices hit the market, the connected home is becoming a reality. Still, the challenge remains for many device manufacturers to rapidly develop and launch great products that their market will love. While they are the best in the fields at designing and manufacturing their products (such as appliances and home HVAC equipment) they are not experts in the fundamental building blocks of a connected solution - networking, security and data management. This is where Ayla can help. Ayla IoT provides all foundational elements required to connect, secure, manage, and scale smart home devices globally while providing the business applications necessary to optimize consumer support and enable new value-add services and revenue opportunities. 

Benefits For OEMs

The IoT is transforming traditional OEMs from device manufacturers into service providers and opening the door to a whole new relationship with the consumer by leveraging device data and interaction through the mobile applications. OEMs now have the opportunity to increase their long-term value in the home and maximize opportunities for up-selling new products or services.

Gain insight into consumer usage by leveraging device data and enjoy more rapid product iterations in the future

Identify new revenue models such as warranty extensions and service offerings

Flexibility to interoperate with other connected devices and enable ecosystem automation within the home

Facilitate an ongoing relationship with the customer through data analysis and mobile interactions

Benefits For Consumers

IoT is a boon for consumers, providing automation of their home environment, voice control of devices, and a closer level of support by their product manufacturers. In addition consumers will consistently enhance the level of home automation with new, enriched products allowing their connected lifestyle to streamline.

Increased product usability through the use of rich mobile interfaces

Enhanced product features & functionality delivering convenience and automation

Improved device efficiency and usage optimization enabling greater energy savings

Increased control and management of devices including voice and remote mobile application

Connected Home Use Cases

Smart Appliances

A new wave of connected appliances is possible, providing a cost effective path to meaningful functionality for end customers, along with remote diagnostics, management and analytics for manufacturers. Connectivity will enable better user experience, proactive alerts and even safety notifications. Manufacturers will learn more about how their products are being used, and be able to more rapidly innovate and deliver enhancements and even new services


Water treatment

US demand for consumer water and air treatment systems will rise 5.5 percent annually to $2.3 billion in 2019, and most of these devices have consumable components such as salt or filters. Adding internet connectivity to these water treatment devices can provide performance data, customized alerts on device performance, automated consumable ordering and even automatically adjusts to your water usage patterns giving you peace of mind, everywhere you are.


Fire & safety

Fires today are more dangerous and pose more risks than in the past. Fire propagation is faster, and time to flash over, escape times and collapse times are all shorter. Adding connectivity to fire safety devices can provide homeowners with the ability to monitor their property remotely and even send alerts to friends and neighbors in the event of an emergency.
