Updated November 08, 2019 09:18:30 AUSTRALIA’S new smart home device is likely to be able to make electric vehicles safer and less dangerous, according to research.
Key points:The Aussie startup is the brainchild of an engineer who’s been working on the concept for 10 yearsThe company has secured $100,000 in funding from the Australian National University’s Research Infrastructure Program, which supports innovation in Australia’s energy sectorThe company will launch a prototype in early 2020The startup will launch its prototype in October 2020 and is currently in discussions with a number of major Australian cities about its potential products, the Australian Financial Press (AFP) has learned.
The startup is working with an engineer from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) who’s spent the last 10 years developing the concept, and is the founder of the Australian Smart Home Devices Association (ASDMAA).
The AASDMAAA is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to encourage the development and manufacture of smart home products that are safe, convenient and eco-friendly.
The group will launch the prototype of its smart home system in early 2018, it said.
The concept is an off-the-shelf device that could be installed in your home, but there is no set timetable for its introduction.
It is intended to help users reduce the amount of energy needed to run their home and improve the quality of their home’s air, water and climate control.
The company is already working with a range of major cities in Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, where it will hold a demo on November 2.
The device is a simple battery operated fan, connected to a thermostat.
Users can adjust the temperature, while at the same time controlling what’s inside the fan.
It also includes a smart lock, which will keep people from accidentally opening or closing the fan if it is accidentally turned off.
There are three levels of control, which allow users to remotely change the temperature and volume, as well as adjusting the fan’s speed and frequency.
It can also remotely turn on lights and fans and control air conditioners.
It’s hoped the smart device will be used in conjunction with a smart home security system, which would enable people to control their home remotely.
It will also be used to remotely lock the doors, as seen in the recent movie ‘Hacking Day’.
The concept was originally designed to replace the existing fan control system in a home, which had been linked to a range from a door lock to a security alarm.
The new system would allow people to adjust the fan speed and temperature in real-time, which in turn would affect how the home is managed.
While the system could be used for other home functions, the AASDMAA is aiming to make it the first smart home product to be fully automated, as opposed to the current set-up.
The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) expects the new system will save energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
“Smart home products such as the Smart Fan will provide Australians with improved energy efficiency and a safer environment for everyone,” AEMO energy market manager, David Bowers, said.
“The AAMPA will be looking to build on this positive trend with a series of initiatives and product launches to help drive this exciting new product innovation.”
Smart home devices are increasingly seen as an attractive alternative to traditional electrical appliances, with some users opting for them because of the ease of installation.
