NEW TECH

REFINES THE

SMART HOME

IFA NEXT is packed with inventions and future

tech that could become standard for the smart

home. Already attracting the attention of global

manufacturers with its software for HA voice

control is Snips, offering pre-packaged, edge-based,

voice-pairing technology connected to all devices

in the household. Its key differentiator is that the

programme works offline: no cloud, no internet

connection, which means no potential for data

breaches. “Your voice stays at home,” Genia Shipova,

VP Marketing And Communications, Snips, told IFA

International, highlighting why Snips’s customisable

system could soon expand out of the smart home

and into the infrastructure of privacy-focused big

business.

Ambi Climate has launched what it claims is “The

world’s first AI-powered air conditioner controller”.

Through an app, which also serves as the AC remote,

cutting-edge machine-learning AI algorithms adapt

to the user’s preferred temperatures – as well as

external factors including time of day, humidity,

sunlight – working and learning in the background.

This means that, in time, the user will need to make

fewer manual adjustments to the air conditioning,

as Ambi Climate micro-manages the environment

automatically.

Tokyo start-up DrinkShift promises to refine the

smart-home experience even further with the

bold mission statement: “Never run out of beer

again”. The system includes a beer refrigerator that

understands the user’s drinking lifestyle and an app

that automatically tracks the number of bottles

remaining, with AI ordering supplies for delivery

before the fridge is empty.

Korean start-up Everybot has created what it claims

is the world’s first dual-spin mopping robot cleaner, a

small sleek wheel-less design that “autonomously and

discreetly cleans the floor in the background”

Homematic IP is the smart-home platform of

German smart-home technology company eQ-

3, which has placed well over 20 million wireless

devices in more than one million households

and which claims to be the European market

leader.

At this year’s IFA, visitors to the revamped

Homematic IP stand in Hall 25 are experiencing

the ultimate integrated smart home designed

to maximise energy efficiency, living comfort

and convenience.

Homematic IP is especially focused on smarthome

starter sets that offer beginners the

chance to achieve whole-home smart living

at low cost and with no prior knowledge. The

systems can be easily installed or retrofitted

via a Homematic IP Access Point that can

control more than 90 devices available within

the industry’s biggest smart-home product

portfolio.

As part of this smart-home entry set, a new

Homematic IP Heating Set was launched at

IFA that enables cost-effective smart heating

control. The goal is to reduce heating costs by

up to 30% via two smart radiator thermostats

that replace conventional equipment.

The set is intuitively operated via the free,

newly designed Homematic IP Smartphone

App in conjunction with the Homematic IP

Access Point. The home heating profile can also

be individually adjusted, while the temperature

can also be conveniently regulated via Amazon

Alexa or Google Assistant voice control.

The set can be upgraded to become part of

a more comprehensive smart-home system

– including, for example, magnetic window

and door contacts to simultaneously improve

insulation and security.

The entire Homematic IP product line also

includes newly encrypted high data security

so it is protected against hacker attacks. In

addition, an anonymous cloud service provides

optimal protection of personal information
