IoT Use Cases for Canadian Dwellings

Up & Coming IoT Use Cases for Canadian Dwellings

10 Oct. 19

While the Internet of Things has been creating buzz across all sectors, including healthcare, workplace safety, and mental health, it has also been creating a lot of hype within the home appliances sector; primarily around smart home automation. Not only are the daily lives of families being made simpler, more efficient, and more comfortable, IoT networks in Canadian dwellings are completely changing how people live their lives. Being able to turn on your air conditioner before even stepping inside, to having your morning coffee brewed before you get out of bed, to listening to weather updates via voice activated assistants while prepping dinner, are all fantastic innovations of an IoT smart home network. But, what about enabling other areas of the home, like using smart snow removal machines during winter and incorporating a smart gardening system in the summer? Yes, those are viable options too and part of our list for up and coming IoT use cases for Canadian dwellings.

6 Smart Systems for Home Use That Are Sure to Be Well Received

  • IoT Enabled Smart Garages. Smart garages are not that far off, considering we have plenty of smart garage door openers at our disposal. A smart garage system would allow the driver to effortlessly control all aspects of the garage from both the inside and the outside of the space. You would be able to control the garage door and all electrical components that go into moving it, provide vehicle security when your vehicle is parked inside, and even include vehicle tracking so you know at a glance whether your vehicle is parked in the garage or is out and about. A smart garage system would require several components, including an Arduino Board, GPS tracker, Sonar Sensor, Laser Data, Motion Detector, Security Alert System, a 360-degree camera, two reflectors, a receiver and transmitter, and a laser shield. The system would be attached to an Android or IOS app that would allow you to open and close the garage, check security, and track the vehicle.
  • IoT Enabled Smart Gardening Systems. While gardens are usually manually operated, an automated or smart garden would allow the user to monitor moisture levels, humidity levels, and overall temperature. The IoT system would check the moisture content of the soil, the intensity of sunlight, and process the data and send it to your notification system, most likely a smartphone. Components required to build a smart garden system would include a soil sensor for all of your plants, a Bolt IoT (allows you to control your devices), an LDR, Male/Male jumper wires, a mobile charger, and female header pins. You could also build a smart gardening system via a network module, which can be seen here.
  • IoT Enabled Smart Home Automation Systems. This includes a wide range of devices within your home that are connected to the IoT network and enabled to perform an action, reliably. This could be your smart coffee maker, your lighting system, or your washer and dryer. Home automation is also present in security and monitoring, such as video doorbells, security cameras, and door locks that automatically detect threats and act by sending alerts to homeowners. You can also automatically log network diagnostics for your cable television or Wi-Fi networks and use a smartphone application to troubleshoot and monitor their network health.
  • IoT Enabled Smart Kitchens. Our kitchens will inevitably become quite smart, either by the way of electronics that chatter to one another or through appliances that provide us with information like the freshness of food items (smart fridge) or information on food mindfulness (Vessyl and Hapifork Utensils). As of right now, there are a plethora of smart devices that you can use within your kitchen to make it “smart” – think inventory devices like Neo, that hold dry goods, measures how much is left, and provides you with nutrition content of each service and automatically refills itself by placing orders through your specified online delivery service.
  • IoT Enabled Smart Snow Removal Machines. Permitting that IoT continues to be advanced, we could see autonomous snow removal machines that manage both snow and ice removal on private properties like home dwellings. They would simply use a geo-map of the area and a GPS to get the job done and include a sensor in them so that if any object approaches them, they will stop moving and stay put until the path is clear.
  • IoT Enabled Smart Lawn Mowers. Very similar to smart now removal machines, smart lawn mowers will also have a geo-map placed in them, sensors to detect obstacles, and a GPS that allows them to track their own movement. They would simply be given the command to head out, and once in motion, use the geo-map to mow the lawn. Once the job was done, they’d come back and turn off. A timer could be used to help determine the length at which the mower runs for, or it could be programmed to only run through a certain area once or twice, before automatically retracting back to its starting position.
