In life, you may have used electronic devices such as Tmall Genie, Xiaomi Bracelet, Anju Bao, shared laundry machines, etc. These products all have a common feature, which is the need to install an app specifically.
Tmall Genie app, Xiaomi Sports app, Anju Bao app, shared laundry app or small program, these must be networked smart electronic products, not to install the app can not be networked to use, install the app and has been lying in the phone without how to click on it.
The phone installed a variety of apps, like this control smart electronic devices app in addition to control their own products, there is no role for other electronic products, and relatively single function.
For the smart home market, it is the same situation, each manufacturer is fighting on its own, developing its own app, building its own central control system, which not only increases the cost of smart home products, but also brings consumers difficulties in choosing.
Consumers need to consider which product to use before buying smart home products, and subsequently can only buy all of this product, because it involves intelligent hardware central control management issues.
1. Xiaomi make big smart hardware
At present, Xiaomi in the field of intelligent hardware is one of the most outstanding manufacturers, every year 618, double 11, although there are certain fluctuations in cell phone sales, but smart hardware can always hold up Xiaomi”s sales.
Up to now, Xiaomi has built the world”s largest consumer hardware IoT platform, also known as IoT platform, connecting already more than 100 million smart hardware products, and MIUI has 190 million active users per month. Xiaomi has laid out and invested in nearly 400 companies in the fields of smart hardware, consumer goods, education, games, culture and entertainment, health care, automotive and transportation.
2. The United States to establish a strong partnership
Midea”s intelligent architecture, in terms of new strategic direction, has truly realized the openness from terminal, cloud to service. Its open SDK, and partners to establish a coupled embedded partnership. Open the third-party cloud platform, completely break the information silo, realize the ecological co-construction, resource sharing and system opening, and promote the “intelligent ecological plan of the United States” together with various industry partners.
Up to now, Huawei, Tencent, LeTV, Xiaomi, TCL, KDDI, etc. have completed the open link with the U.S. IBM, Amazon, Ali cloud also formed a “sister company” with the U.S. to realize intelligent after-sales service, intelligent single equipment, intelligent system operation and other scenes linkage.
3. Haier u-home
Haier u-home is a good living solution launched by Haier Group in the era of Internet of Things. It combines wired and wireless networks, and connects all devices to the network through information sensing devices to realize the “small family network”, “community network” and “big world network” of things. The network can realize 3C products, intelligent identification of the Internet of things, intelligent home system management and digital media information sharing.
Haier u-home users can interact with the electrical equipment at home anytime and anywhere through telephone, SMS, Internet, etc., and enjoy a “convenient and comfortable” high-quality intelligent life.
At present, there are a number of domestic companies that have launched smart home, intelligent central control, and there are many foreign companies to join the melee. Intelligent central control is generally routers, televisions and other high-frequency use of equipment as a central control server, central control equipment through Wifi or Bluetooth connection to intelligent hardware, consumers through the central control equipment connected to control the work of intelligent hardware.
And, for smart home, smart hardware interconnection, international, national, industry has not yet appeared unified standards or industry regulations, which not only increases the cost of smart devices, smart home enterprise R & D, production (mainly from the system establishment, driver and software development, etc.), but also undermine the user experience. Even, some smart devices networking, use process is too cumbersome and unreliable, which affects the user”s feeling of use.
Huawei HarmonyOS system release, is expected to end the IoT smart hardware enterprise chaos, unified interconnection portal. The HarmonyOS system itself is developed for IOT interconnection and is applicable to the era of Internet of everything. As Huawei Consumer Business BG Yu Chengdong said: no one is an island, every person, every device is part of the Internet of Everything continent.
In “No man is an island”, the British poet John Donne wrote: “No man is an island that can be all by itself, and everyone is a piece of the continent.” In the era of Internet of everything, information communication and interaction has become people”s daily life, and connection and interaction have become the theme song of IOT.
The release of HarmonyOS, step back, even in the field of cell phone system, HarmonyOS eventually did not stand firm, in the field of IOT HarmonyOS also has its own piece of territory. HarmonyOS runs smoothly on 128K~4G memory devices, coupled with its interconnected ease of operation, which is itself a huge advantage of the system.
And HarmonyOS has been achieved open source, each enterprise manufacturer can get the source code through the Open Atomic Open Source Foundation. This has a strong positive effect on the system to build together and increase mutual trust among friends.
At present, the open source IoT systems include TencentOS tiny developed by Tencent and AliOS Things developed by Alibaba, both of which are applicable to embedded IoT devices and have their own characteristics.
TencentOS tiny is self-developed by Tencent, emphasizing lightweight IoT real-time operating system. The minimum resource footprint is 0.6kB on RAM and 1.8kB on ROM.
In 2017, Alibaba in launched Alios things, a lightweight, open source IoT embedded operating system dedicated to building a cloud-integrated IoT infrastructure. With key capabilities such as cloud integration, security protection and multi-service components, it supports end devices to access Ali cloud links and can be widely used in smart homes, smart cities, new tourism and other fields.
Compared with TencentOS tiny and AliOS Things, HarmonyOS has a wider scope of application in IOT field, and the promotion speed of HarmonyOS is significantly faster than these two open source systems, which has obvious advantages.
In summary, the release of HarmonyOS is expected to unify the hardware interconnection interface in the IOT field and terminate the situation that different system devices cannot be interconnected, which is a great blessing for enterprises and users, not only reduces the cost of product development, but also enhances the experience of using devices at the same time.
