A connected home brings devices and services together for an integrated, autonomous experience that improves a consumer’s life. Connected home experiences include everything from voice-controlled lights, house-cleaning robots, machine learning-enabled security cameras, and WiFi routers that troubleshoot for you. Thanks to decreasing costs and increasing options for connectivity, these smart home devices, sensors, and tools can be interlinked to create real-time, contextual, and smart experiences for consumers.
IoT powers the connected home by bringing new features and capabilities to smart devices, like interconnectivity, security, offline communication, predictive maintenance, analytics for consumer insights, and machine learning. Each of these capabilities play a different role in key connected home use cases such as home automation, home security and monitoring, and home networking.
Connected Home IoT Use Cases
Home automation includes a wide range of connected IoT devices that can be found in the home such as a washer/dryer, oven, refrigerator, TV, coffee maker, or light bulb. AWS IoT helps improve the customer experience by enabling a device to connect and perform an action quickly, reliably, and easily. For example, a customer who buys a smart coffee maker will want an easy setup using an app on their smartphone. Additionally, devices can also benefit from using voice services like Alexa for a seamless customer experience.
Home Security & Monitoring
Products in the home security and monitoring segment include security devices such as connected door locks, video doorbells, security cameras, and monitoring systems such as water leak detectors, energy management systems, and connected thermostats. Devices built with AWS IoT can use machine learning to automatically detect threats, take action, and send alerts to home owners. AWS IoT enables devices to run with low-latency and compute data locally, without internet connectivity.
Home Network Management
Network operators are looking for new ways to help customers quickly discover, troubleshoot, and fix home network issues including Wi-Fi and cable TV connectivity. AWS IoT enabled set-top boxes can automatically log network diagnostics and send to the customer service center proactively or allow customers to monitor and troubleshoot their network health through a mobile app.
