Smart Houses and Apps Testing

Your customers don’t want to mess with their washing machine settings — they just want to plug it in and make it work. So, how to make sure that everything in a house works for your customer? Of course, you need to test the devices connected with the house
Modern people want to save time and energy in their houses. Smart House connected to the Internet and full of AR and VR technologies is the right solution for them. However, the main challenge in digital world is to ensure that new technologies perform properly and work with other products.
Devices in your own house are becoming more and more intelligent. Augmented & virtual reality fulfill many functions. They are not a hype and even not a privilege anymore.
Augmented reality interacts with electrical signals emitted by devices which enables remote control. Intelligent gadgets that control such things as lighting, heating or video surveillance will benefit your house’s safety and comfort.
Virtual reality solutions enable to pretend your presence inside the house when you want to buy it. You can literally find yourself inside the apartment. Besides, there are no limits for the space — you can visualize a house, a building, and the whole city.

IoT and AI in Smart Homes

Internet of Things (IoT) is not just a multitude of devices and sensing units connected to the Internet by wired or wireless networks. It is a tight integration of simulated and real sphere where people and machines “communicate”. Devices and appliances are typically electrical gadgets ranged from lighting, ventilators, central air, washing machines, cold-storages, etc. in the house to the increasingly significant electrical units built in such systems as pumps or fire panels.
Employment of artificial intelligence (AI) is constantly expanding its boundaries, so soon it will not only change our jobs, but also transform life in our homes. According to Cisco, by 2021, all home AI applications related to automation and security, video surveillance and home appliances will account for 46 % of all machine-to-machine (M2M) interactions.
In case of Smart Homes, the IoT framework provides statistics, and AI benefits from this information for specific activities that will better the people’s lot. Once AI and IoT are integrated, intelligent devices begin to respond remotely to user voice commands or programmed AI commands.
A notable example is Google’s Nest, that is constantly self-learning from the fact that residents behave the way they do, and then uses this data to automatically adjust the temperature to ensure comfort while inhabitants are at home, and provide energy efficiency when the are absent.

IoT and AI in Smart Homes

Smart Home quality assurance services include hardware development support, software app validation and user interaction optimization, cloud services validation, radio signal and interference validation, and compatibility testing.

The testing process will require a scenario list which will cover the main behaviour patterns for using the systems, and objects for testing. Having numerous interactions between different devices, when each of them has its own user-flow and specifications in use, we have to make sure that user experience delivers smooth and sequential impressions for end-users while interacting with the elements of a system.

Another crucial part of testing is to evaluate the ergonomics of used devices and how each part of the system is persept by the user. It is very important to assess how convenient the devices are and whether there are critical differences in the methods of “communication” between them, so as not to cause frustration when using. Cross-device user experience had already become our habit of how we interact with a product.

Today, personalization is not a trend anymore. It is rather a necessity in every industry. Users seek the outstanding experience, so more and more tools are designed to learn the user behaviour and recognize the patterns to provide a more subtle experience. Therefore, when testing products, we must pay attention to how the data collected with the cross-device tracking is adjusted to the product performance.
Smart things are becoming a part of our being more and more. With the adoption of IoT and AI, home automation becomes even more fruitful and allows people to manage their houses better. For sure, Smart Houses are transforming into an effective finding for our everyday duties.
