Air is a Smart home automation solution that looks cool, saves power

Despite all the web-based services we use every day, the internet and our daily lives have a boundary between them. However, the Internet of Things — commonly known as IOT — is all set to bridge that boundary, and thus connect our real life to the internet in such a way that we can make our lives smart! In an always-growing field like Internet of Things, Air is a new member but a truly revolutionary one.

You’d have seen many automation systems for your home; usually, a very bulky system requiring a complete rewiring of your house, letting you only switch on/off your appliances without much flexibility. This is where Air becomes fresh; it leverages the power of IOT, bringing a whole new experience with your home in a very sleek and compact form. In short, Air is the new-generation, smart and impressive manager for your home electronic appliances, making it a sold out product within just one month after its launch. In this post, we will have an in-detail overview of the product and technology behind and why it makes sense to get Air for your home.

Air — Things You Should Know

Air is designed and developed by Leaf Technologies Private Limited, a company from Mumbai, India. The company has been quite successful in creating a home automation suite that doesn’t require you to dig out all the switchboards and rewire. Instead, with the existing wiring system and appliances you have, Air can be installed in an effective way to control all your appliances. You can make your home appliances smart, with not much effort. From installation to maintenance, there is experts’ support available from Air. And we should say, Air is just charming.

Air — Design & Technology

Given that there’s a Wi-Fi router in your home with a good Internet connection setting up Air is a simple task. Air can be classified into two parts, and they are as follows.

There’s the Air room unit, which acts as the bridge between your controls and appliances. This small, black and shiny pentagonal box has all the necessary sensors and technologies that make your home smarter, from the usability point of view. From a temperature sensor that detects fire to a universal IR remote control system for managing your appliances, Air would do the job perfectly fine. The room unit grants you access to a plethora of features, giving you control of all your appliances in the palm of your hand.

The other part of Air is the switchboard modules, which are connected behind your existing switchboards, to give control to Air. Once you have attached the modules to the switchboard, the modules can establish a Bluetooth-based connection between your home appliances and Air room unit.

Once Air room unit and switchboard modules have been installed successfully, you can use the Air app — available for both Android and iOS — and start controlling your home appliances, regardless of where you are or what you’re doing.

Air App — Control through Smartphones

With Air, you can turn your Smartphone into a universal remote control for all your home appliances, from your AC to fans, from ambient lights to heaters. You can even have advanced control options such as adjustment of temperature and intensity of light.

Also, you will be notified about a variety of things happening at your home; let that be a leakage of gas, an intrusion or an energy spike. The app lets you create various schedules for easier management of appliances. And what’s more, you can even add members of your family to control appliances!

Why Should You Get Air for Your Home?

There are several reasons why you should do that! We are going to list out the most prominent ones, from the user’s point of view.

  • Smarter Management of Home Appliances

By installing Air at your home, you’re bringing appliances management into the next level! As we said earlier, you can toggle or adjust your home appliances using the Smartphone application of Air. Apart from that, when you’ve given it a time of 21 days, Air would learn your habits, preferences, etc. to get you personalized results. And this feature is aptly named Magic Touch.

Air would be able to control your home appliances in a manner that is safer and efficient regarding energy usage. Wouldn’t it be awesome if your room is in your desired temperature when you get home after work? Well, that’s what Magic Touch does in the literal sense.

There’s also a feature named One Touch. By placing your hands on the Air unit’s touch-sensitive surface, you can switch on a variety of home appliances. This is good when you need an all-set environment in your home, in no time. And regarding the issue of appliance scheduling, there’s both regular manual Scheduling and Smart Scheduling options available in Air.

The season of outdoor entertainment is upon us, and we couldn’t be happier!  With all of the various outdoor parties – birthdays, engagement celebrations, promotions, etc. – make sure your home is smart and ready to accommodate your busy entertaining schedule, while also impressing your guests.

Imagine, you’ve finished prepping the veggie tray in the kitchen when you hear a knock at the door. At the same time, you’ve received a notification that the motion sensor detected movement, the live camera feed comes up directly your phone. Instead of stopping what you’re doing to go open the door, simply unlock it with the push of a button on your phone and let the guest know to “come on in!”

As the guests continue to arrive, you can keep letting them in without leaving the backyard.

With a flow of people going in and out of the home to use the bathroom, you get a notification from your home center that several doors have been open more than set time and the AC is running.  The pop up message asks you if you would like to turn the AC off.  You can do it without having to walk away from your conversation by simply opening your app and hitting a button.

The party is a success, and has now gone past sunset. With the push of a button, turn on your outdoor entertaining scene, which turns on the patio and sidewalk lighting, and activates some mellow background music.

When it’s time for dessert, turn on the coffee maker while relaxing in a lounge chair.

Not only does a smart home provide you with convenience, it also allows you to spend more time with your guests. With a home like this, not only will you be King of the Grill, you’ll be King of the Summer.
