Voice Control Devices using Alexa & Googlehome

Voice Control Devices using Alexa & Googlehome

Human race has been tied to actions by touch for a prolonged period. Touch is something bound to the extend to which you can stretch your arms and body. Sound and Vision goes a long way beyond horizons. The advent of image processing techniques largely influenced the addition of visual recognition to the machines. Along with the Industry 4.0 and the current home automation trend, a lot of innovation is happening over Sound. We can control everything around us with voice using voice hearing robots like Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa, Microsofts’ Cortana, Google Home / Assistant.

Home Automation leads the Voice Race

Voice and IoT go hand in hand, freeing users from being tied down by screens, data and physical inputs. Voice commands have arguably become one of the greatest and quickest way to control home devices. Just give a voice command from anywhere to automate your device at home. Turning on the air-conditioning before actually stepping inside the home. Turning off the lights when no one is in the room and controlling the brightness of light for energy efficiency. Adding connectivity to fire safety devices can provide house owners with the ability to monitor remotely and even send alerts to neighbors in the event of emergency. When you develop smart home for your customers, you need to get the IoT platform that already has voice integration. Bevywise IoT platform is one such platform that comes out of the box with integration for Google Home / Assist & Amazon Alexa.

Voice control in Industries

Industries today has not started embracing the voice as a primary medium. The world has been fed up with typing for a long time. It is time to rethink the integration of voice into the manufacturing echo system. Sirens has been used for a long time to mark time and alarms for emergency. However, we believe more reporting in the future will happen using voice than the need for texual reading and writing. Wherever you go the lighting and temperature controls all perform in concert to optimize your comfort based on your pre-determined personal indictors. In order to check the growth of a particular year, you can use voice control and this will create a graph show-casting the year’s growth in click through rates. This will eventually replace going through files manually.

We can strengthen the security of the industry instead of swiping cards. In addition, The proper functioning of your machines can be monitored periodically with a voice command anywhere, anytime. In order to start the meeting, just give a voice command to your voice assistant, it will turn on the video conference system and dial into the conference hall. The automation creates intelligent processes for monitoring and decision-making and to economize the supply chain and production.

Voice control in Health Care

With the advent of technology in medical care, we are generating a lot of medical records in the format of images and textual PDF. We are storing medical records in a highly secure environment. These data are highly analysed today to make very predictive solutions. One of the major integration we forsee for the medical care for the physicians are the integration of voice. We believe that physicians will be using more and more voice to pull out the medical records of patients and draw conclusions. This will be highly useful during surgical operations. Pulling records using voice will highly save time than manual entry of data on the screens.

The technology of voice recognization has come and long way so that the tools and devices today can understand variations in voice and also identify the owner to act accordingly.

You can connect your devices to the IoT Platform today by signing up to a fresh account.

  • A few Admins
  • Normal Users

Grouping of Things

The new version will provide option to grouping of devices and machines based on departments to provide granular control. Permissions can be provided as read only or read / write based on the grouped devices. In a business organization, a few professionals can be allowed to send commands to the machines / devices while others can monitor the activity and view graphs.

Normal Users will be able to view / operate on single or multiple group of devices / machines for which they have been provided permissions.

Admins will be able to create new widgets & Dashboards (coming soon), provide permissions for users, create and manage created groups.

Super Admin is the account owner who will be able to add new users and do everything else Admin and Normal user can perform.

IOT Device Manager – Security & Device Management Update

IOT Device Manager – Security & Device Management Update

We have enhanced, IOT Device Manager application  with more security and Device management functionality. This update is supported in the On-demand version and the self hosted platform.

Instant Command:

 Most IOT Devices that connect to the IOT Device Manager will send events. And at the same time it listens to specific commands for receiving instructions from the manager application. The manager at anytime send commands to device to active some tasks or manage them.  We have  added an option to send commands to specific device or a group of device as a new update.

Authentication & Access Privilege:

The new update allows you to create multiple Authentication keys for a particular set of IOT devices. And also it allow users to set access rights like Read/Write, Read Only and Write Only.

 The Sensors which just sends data to the IOT Device Manager can be allowed to use the Write only keys.  While an actuator valve which turns on and off flow of liquids can be used with a Read Only key. In addition, the new functionality allows right keys to be used as required for enhanced security.

 We developed the Device manager to provides an option to disable a particular authentication key inactive in case of emergency or suspicious connections and You can re enable once to clear alarms.

Enhanced User Interface:

We enhanced the User Interface with a better dashboard and a cleaner look and Feel.

Powerful API for Integration:

In addition, We have added a few API’s that will help build the Mobile application or integrate any application to the IOT Platform. These API will also work on the custom hosted servers and you need to use your domain instead of http://mqttserver.com/login/ in the API URL.

With an objective to allow users to easily SignUp and manage their devices, we have set up the Device manager in the Non SSL mode for the TCP and the Web socket Communication.
