We want to give our clients full control over their homes, which is why we’ve been constantly working on making our smart home control panel better. Lately, we’ve reconsidered some key aspects of Plugmee’s official mobile application and added a few features that will ultimately make our solution an all-in-one tool with user-friendly functionality and unique opportunities in terms of smart home management.
When we first applied for the VDNG-TECh program, we could hardly believe that Plugmee would ever manage to get through.We indeed were striving for developing into a strong competitive business that could bring our innovative concepts into life and make them play a key part in our people’s lives. However, nobody expected it to get so close to reality, all of a sudden! Not only were we chosen for the main competition, but we also got an opportunity to present our project to telecommunication experts and finally won our membership in the 11-week study program aimed at accelerating our business and modifying our smart home solution.
In our previous post, we have reviewed the list of the most promising Ukrainian startups related to home automation. We’ve presented you with some key features of their projects and highlighted their potential advantages over existing solutions on the market. However, what we missed is a claim that our own startup can offer opportunities our competitors lack, and we’re going to prove it by benchmarking Plugmee against our latest top-5 list of Ukrainian home automation startups.
According to the recent study conducted by MarketsandMarkets research company, the global home automation market is likely to reach $78.2 billion by the year 2022. This means that each year the popularity of smart home devices will grow, and so is the number of companies producing those devices.
So far, the US is considered to be the first player in the niche, while Europe is keeping the second position. Speaking about Ukraine, its local market experiences certain difficulties with their performance on a global level in general, let alone the sphere of the Internet of Things and home automation respectively. However, many Ukrainian businesses do realize the potential of introducing smart devices into their home country.
It has been three months since Ukrainians started paying for electricity according to the new tariff rates. For the consumption of up to 100 kW of electricity the fee is 36.6 cents per 1 kW / h, if the consumption exceeds 100 kW, the fee is 63 cents. If monthly energy consumption is more than 600 kW / hour, the pay for 1 kW / h comes to 140.7 cents.
Have you ever wondered what you are paying for and what appliances account for the most part of your electricity expenses? Is it reasonable to have your laptop or cell phone charging all night?
