It’s a Wi-Fi setup process that allows multiple in-home devices to connect to Wi-Fi networks quickly and efficiently. It is specifically for applications that typically do not have a display or keyboard to enter network name and password.
SmartConfig interface gives end users the ability to easily connect IR devices to an access point. Through a simple SmartConfig method/interface, consumers can use any programming concept to create own application using SmartConfig Interface.
Connect IR device / hardware with application, is a first step to connect IR device to application by sending Broadcast Datagram packets with network (Wi-Fi) details (SSID and Password).
This process is able to send and receive broadcast datagram packets and make connection with application and IR hardware device. Application has a GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allow user to connect device.
Application first check whether any IR device is already connected, if not than it will prompt a window to connect device with some validations as.
Application creates a socket connection with host (Router) and sends broadcast datagram packets with SSID and password to get connected with IR device and wait for acknowledgment from IR smart device.
Device learning – After IR device is connected with the application, the user is able to setup commands/signal for home appliances based on their hand gesture, and it starts with a learning step.
In learning phase user is able to setup one or multiple instructions or command for multiple devices using GUI of application.
Our current implementation has basic gestures like 0-5 count, up-down, left-right. Based on user configuration, application will operate their attached devices.
For e.g.: Increase TV volume on Up-Down movement of hand.
After learning phase, you are ready to operate your home appliances with your hand gestures. Now user can Switch On, Off the TV and also manage volume in our application implementation
We have configured 6-7 command to operate TV as: ON, OFF, Volume Up- Down, Mute, Open menu bar, Exit menu bar and their operations.
Signal Processing (Remote service)- Our application is able to detect hand gesture and pass the IR signal to configured home appliances according to human hand gesture.
Application is capable of managing User interaction, IR device communication, signal and skin color persistence.
Application gateway is incorporated to connect smart home appliances, and an IOT connection management platform is required to enable various applications.
These applicable solutions include: home automation, which idyllically promotes happier, and more comfortable and convenient lifestyle.
The solution will help operators to transform from traditional home broadband services to provide intelligent home services.
