Introduce

Whether you are buying a new house or renovating an old house, or whether you can support electric vehicle charging piles in the future, we also need to consider whether there will be a paperless management committee function and property management integration in the future.

This guide covers:

  • What is a smart home?
  • What is the function of smart home APP?
  • Smart building and smart home integration?
  • What is a multilingual environmental smart home?
  • What is smart home remote management?
  • What is a paperless management committee?

What is a smart home?

In the early days, smart homes were collectively referred to as home automation. After the maturity of Internet of Things technology and cloud technology, the latest version of smart homes already has a spiritual concept: in addition to the initial construction of the construction company for residents and the ability for future residents to expand by themselves, also known as As a smart home ecosystem, this concept allows residents to freely change their desired actual use according to their actual future living environment. What are the main functions of a smart home as follows

  • Home Security
  • Smart Lighting
  • Entertainment
  • Healthcare
  • Smart Living
  • Ambient Control
  • Energy Management (HEMS)
  • Homecare
  • Smart Life

What is the function of smart home APP?

The following video was made by the ECC Yiqu team in 2018. The actual field operation video under the project of the construction company successfully participated in the project. After more than five years, it is rare to see such a new full-featured application in the construction project in Taiwan today. Residential

Smart building and smart home integration?

At this point, the team of Fun Sharing Studio found that any residence must use a video interphone system. However, at present, the video interphone and smart home in Taiwan currently use separate and independent APPs, and there is no complete set of environments integrated into a single APP to provide future occupants

What is a smart building?

Simple by the project editor, let everyone understand the difference between traditional buildings and smart buildings through the following table

Comparison between smart buildings and traditional buildings

The weak current equipment used in smart buildings must have a network interface RJ45, and some support the so-called POE power supply mode with its own power supply.

Because there is no such network interface RJ45 in the weak current equipment used in traditional buildings, it is necessary to find another place for the weak current equipment to configure DC power supply.

The diameter of PVC pipes used in the configuration of the house is also different. Relatively speaking, it is more convenient to use smart buildings and reduce the diameter of pipelines.

What is a multilingual environmental smart home?

In this type of multilingual environment, we divide it into two types: the use of the mobile terminal of the household and the use of the management committee of the management terminal.

  • Does the technology currently used on the mobile phone support the so-called free use of technology to design APP?
  • Whether the management interface of the management terminal supports the design of local or remote cross-platform interface

At present, our first consideration is the use of visitors. If there is a set at the gate, it supports multilingual interface and can freely switch between Chinese, English, Vietnamese, and Japanese.

Such a functional interface can meet the problems of visitors in Taiwan's construction projects, and can also solve the problem of using foreign domestic helpers in general Taiwanese households.

That's right!! ECC's fun together design team did take this into consideration, and even adopted multilingual technology on the mobile phone

What is smart home remote management?

The following summarizes the remote management functions that households generally use

The above are the common smart home remote management function requirements that interior designers generally accept entrusted by residents

What is a paperless management committee?

What are the functions of the paperless management committee?

  • vote
  • Pay the fees
  • Key card management
  • announcement
  • public appointment
  • parcel mail
  • meeting minutes
  • household list
  • Inspection process

Among these functions, being the chairman of the management committee is generally the three most difficult headaches.

Voting: There will never be enough people to vote for the proposal to pass

Household List: Incorrect information on actual households and homeowners

Payment: always because the management fee cannot be fully collected, and the operating funds are insufficient

If there is a system that can help, it is really good news for the officials of the management committee. I am very fortunate that there is an ECC system in Taiwan that provides such functions for free.
