Top 5 Innovative IoT Based Home Automation Projects Ideas 2018
What is IoT(Internet of Things)?
The trend of IoT 2018 is becoming an increasing advance growing topic. Simply IoT is a concept by connecting any device with an on or off switch to the Internet. It includes many things like home automation, industries, smartphones, wearables, machines almost anything else you can think of. For the Home Automation IoT is the promoter for them. IoT Solutions using home Automation system can help people to boost their daily routine.
What really would push someone to actually built a complete IoT-based home automation system? It is hard to say. Repeatedly, it is even more difficult to visualize the technology that is required to build a home automation platform. Home Automation is a process of managing home appliances using many control techniques where a single device is utilized to control many things of a home like switching on and off different appliances, monitoring temperature, fire alarms, TVs, garage doors, lights, washing machine etc.
After broad analysis, we are present here today's latest IoT Home Automation Projects. Let's see one by one!
1.) Mark Zuckerberg's AI Personal Assistant Jarvis
Mark Zuckerberg induced Jarvis as his new AI Assistant from the comforts of his own home. Jarvis is a custom-made Artificial Intelligent assistant for Mark Zuckerberg’s family and can control almost everything as Home Automation System. Mark Zuckerberg having completed his personal challenge to build a Jarvis-style AI to run his home after years of codding. Check out video demonstration on Jarvis for see here full facebook video.
2.) Zelda Ocarina Home Automation System
Zelda’s Home Automation System works on note recognition system. You can create your own custom notes using an instrument and can Unlocks/locks your home door, TV, Air Conditioner, Heater, pour water to plants, connect with Car, smartphones, and anything. Few modules need to connect with your home Appliances like Internet-connected RasPi and ESP8266 wifi modules. Make a note connect with appliances and see amazing thing can be done.
