Smart home has not yet entered the track of mature development, but all kinds of price wars have started, we can find “freezing point” low-cost intelligent household products everywhere. As the saying goes, “man struggles upwards, price flows downwards”, the low and popular price of smart home is the trend of the future, however the low price strategy, let people can no longer value the intelligent household products, the present high price become a reason of difficult to popularize for intelligent household. But, everybody has been focusing on low prices, so what kind of price is cheap?
It’s not difficult to find that normal switch just cost a few dollars in market, according to normal usage, those switches could achieve function of turn on/off for linked devices, which is enough for basic demand. So smart switch is expensive and not practical.
Max ever said that, the things with different nature can’t compared. Although they are both switches with same basic function, smart switch is different from normal switch on nature. Take the Wireless Smart Switch from Wulian as example, which can not only control the devices locally, but also can linked with smart phone and realize remote control, it also supports real-time monitor, can feed back the information of device’s status. The switch can also be linked with other devices to realize intelligentialize, for example, when a child is reading book and forget to turn on the light while dark rising, light sensor would link switch to light on automatically. Possess huge advance on both safety and stability, with high technological content. On the contrary, normal switch can just turn on/off the linked device, has no comparability with smart devices. It’s unreasonable that link the function of smart switch with the price of normal switch.
In any case, intelligent household products prices will come down sooner or later. However the industry and technology of smart home is not mature yet, and the price level can’t reach public receptivity, but which not means expensive. Whether the price of smart home product is high or not, need to be evaluated combined with the requirements and economic capability of public, as well as the performance, experience, service, perhaps the smart switch worth 100 dollars is just the one you need.
