Applications > Home Automation
In our modern life there is a constant demand to stay connected - we constantly collect data from the surroundings using smart wireless systems that transmit the information to our handheld devices. Monitor our home instruments is following the same approach and many companies have started to develop smart wireless systems for all sort of applications. Those systems are using sensors to monitor the light level, temperature, relative humidity, appliance performance, presence and even the lock on the front door.
These advanced wireless solutions can transform any ordinary home into a smart home and with dedicated software to support different applications there are endless possibilities to select from. The new devices in the market simplify home automation in an elegant way and attract users with high-tech designs and unique features. This market is growing rapidly and new applications hit the market every day.
However, one of the Smart Homes biggest challenges is to find an indoor wireless power source. Current solutions require power line wires or high maintenance solutions such as battery replacement. Alternative power sources are still limited. The use of Sol Chip’s Everlasting Solar Battery as an alternative power supply provides in most cases an everlasting power source.
