IoT is no more hype today, it’s already a big reality today. Today while fathoming about the widely interconnected devices, we need to understand the relationship between the Internet of Things and Mobile apps which is becoming complimentary and mutual now. As most home gadgets and workplace devices are now coming equipped with connected ability, connected mobile apps are at the driver’s seat to control these gadgets. Right from apps for wearable smart fitness bands to apps for the smart kettle, from apps for smart shoes to smart TVs, every connected device finds its centralized control in mobile apps. Can conclude, that we have apps for every possible automation today.
While there is no dearth of growth for the Internet of Things and connected devices, the Mobile apps Development Company is at the center stage of this rapidly evolving environment of connected devices and gadgets.
As per authoritative ABI Research “By 2020 thanks to the growth of the Internet of Things there will be 40.9 devices.”
The Complete Shift Of Home Automation With IoT
If any area of modern life you want to name that has been impacted most by the Internet of Things, it is home automation.
Our mobile app development team expert at CMARIX conveys “IoT Is an Invincible Solution for Home Automation.”
A vast majority of electronics that we use at home these days are smart ones that can be controlled by mobile apps. When mobile devices are working as the connecting hub for multiple devices, there is no problem in adding new IoT devices to the network. This approach allows a collective management of IoT devices right from your mobile interface. The best thing is that mobile platforms also work as the gatekeepers of these apps offering quality assurance measures with the respective development guideline. This ensures less dependence on the device manufacturers in respect of glitch-free user experience.
When it comes to ensuring optimum security for home automation devices, both platforms ensure reliability. Instead of depending on the device level security measures, you can keep faith in security measures on mobile platforms. iOS and Android have already proved to be highly secure platform, and they are still continuing to be better. Therefore when the talk is about security, quality mobile apps development services will surely offer an extra layer of security. With mobile working as the connecting hub, your home automation is more secure than ever before.
Context Is The Key Principle
With mobile device sensors playing a key role in informing your devices about the user location, your device usage can be more contextual and location-specific. By allowing sensor-led information in our interaction with connected gadgets, we can make our mobile app usability more contextual. When your mobile sensors inform about your location, activity and typical use patterns in different times of the day, the devices can utilize this information and insights to ensure more contextual use. Your electric kettle can just start boiling the water on its own depending on your usual time to get up and preference for a cup of coffee.
Mobile devices can also add more useful context to many other aspects of device uses in the home, workplace, or transport. For instance, if your kid is using a drone to take aerial photographs, the connected app based on the constraints of the space can guide the controller and exert some limitations of movement. Similarly, you can always personalize the TV or audio experience for each member of the house based on the person who has switched the device on and controlling it from the mobile app of his handheld device. While the possibility seems endless, mobile apps always play at center stage.
