Google targets smart home, Wulian blocks off the entrance Recently, Google highly announced its acquisition of Nest Lab by 3.2 billion USD dollars, which raised an outburst of uproar in the industry. From the reports of other countries, Google originally formulated to set up their own smart home system Android@home, but failed finally. With the booming development of global internet of things and smart industry, the market opportunity is extremely precious and even can fleet in one second. Google was in haste to carrying out its acquisition plans, targeting the Nest among the industry chains, which is full of its unique feature. The international experts commonly believed that Google has its shrewd vision to making Nest under its own control so as to build a golden channel towards homes and houses. However, in China, situation will not be as smooth as Google in overseas countries. The fundamental reasons lie in Wulian, who hided in this way secretly for a long time. Wulian had finished the intellectual property registration in the fields of homes long time ago, so that Wulian blocked off the entrance of smart home channel thanks to a series of independent invention patents. Here, we pick over several important invention patents to illustrate briefly. 1. Wireless IR Transmitter Patent. As we all know, many traditional home appliances can be controlled by IR remote controller, such as air conditioner, television, projector, floor heating etc. In the smart home system, these devices must be controlled in remote distance or beyond visual distance through cellphone, tablet PC and scene switch as well. In order to achieve such function, we require a middleware called IR transmitter. This middleware enables you to transfer cellphone signal to IR signal so as to control home appliances. This method can be regarded as an entrance allowing internet come into the IR home appliances. Few years ago, Wulian had completed the registration of this invention patent and obtained the invention certification. 2. Wireless Cloud Smart Lock Patent. At present, many so-called smart locks are just smart itself and don’t join in a smart system, which fail to meet the demand of the development trend of internet of things. Due to such drawback, these locks don’t have a promising prospect. To satisfy the requirement for homes in the future, Wulian had fulfilled the IOT cloud smart lock invention patent. The most obvious characteristic of this patent is that the act of any locks which are wirelessly connected to home gateway or server is right infringement. This patent is a design of invention, protecting a kind of thought way. From its large conception, it is really a good design as well as a huge impact to competitors. Indisputably, door is the gate of our homes; meanwhile, all things in house connection is an inexorable trend, so once anyone who wants to make lock joined to the home network will undoubtedly confronted with the bullheaded obstruction of Wulian. 3. Wireless Cloud Body Weight Meter Patent. In our daily life, body weight can be seen everywhere, but they are traditional ones and don’t equip with wireless transmission function. That is to say, they are hardly to upload automatically the health data to cellphone and even cloud so that it is incapable to form weight system curve for the reference of doctor. Wulian has designed such body weight calculator having such function. Once other weight meters and healthy regulator device has referred to automatic uploading function, this act can be identified as infringement. That is to say, this patent totally blinds in data automatic uploading registration direction. According to the analysis of abroad press, Google will definitely involve in health data collection in the future, however, Wulian hold such patent which will be a hard threshold for Googgle to pass over. 4. Geographic Position Sense Control Patent. For a great number of people, smart home always represents using cellphone to turn on the APP software and launch the central air ventilation system, air conditioner system and floor heating system before coming back to home. To be perfectly candid, this concept still stays in original stage, IOT smart home system should be like that when you go back home taking your cellphone, with closer direction you are, your wireless gateway will determine your cellphone position and your house position constantly. As soon as you come in a specific region, air conditioner and other system will turn on automatically. Once you go out for a given distance, corresponding devices and system will shut down automatically and security protection system starts monitoring automatically. All these scenes don’t call for the involvement of your manual operation, which can free your hands and brain and enable you concentrate on other important matters. Wulian fortifies such comprehensive patent wall of smart home through such above actions. It’s deeds
means that only Wulian can manufacture a complete set of smart home products. So, there are three ways remaining to other companies: either face with the risk of impingement, or building a incomplete and secluded smart home system, or collaborate with Wulian. For other points of view, these patents undoubtedly provide a strong protection for Chinese enterprises from the strike of other overseas giants and constitute a powerful resistance to the entrance of Google in China. To Google, smart home will be bound to an unrealizable dream in China.
