In the fast-paced and technology-driven world we live in today, modern living environments present a myriad of challenges that can impact our health, well-being, and overall quality of life. As urban centers continue to grow, so does the intensity of polluted air, relentless traffic noise, and other urban nuisances. These challenges demand innovative solutions, and that is where the concept of smart homes comes into play. Smart homes integrate advanced technologies to create a seamless, comfortable, and eco-friendly living environment. Taiwan, a leading technological powerhouse, has been at the forefront of developing cutting-edge solutions to enhance the concept of smart homes. With a strong emphasis on sustainability and well-being, Taiwanese companies have been working diligently to address the challenges posed by modern living environments.
To further boost these innovative solutions from Taiwan, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, established the Taiwan Excellence Awards in 1993. This award recognises brands that are shaping industries worldwide. Every year, selected brands are subjected to a rigorous and stringent selection system that covers four major aspects of “R&D”, “Design”, “Quality” and “Marketing” to identify outstanding products that offer “Innovative Value” while satisfying the key criterion of being “made in Taiwan”. Products that win recognition then serve as examples of the domestic industries and are promoted by the government in the international market in order to shape the creative image for Taiwanese businesses.
Two such award winning products that make homes smarter are the 2-in-1 Air Circulator and Purifier by Acerpure and Smart Dimming LC Window by Innolux.
The 2-in-1 Air Circulator and Purifier by Acerpure with a 6-inch circulation fan that generates 10 speeds of spiral airflow. This makes purified air coverage wider and deeper compared to only an air purifier. The circulation fan has a 90° up and down air circulator swing and 80° left to right rotation which makes the circulation wider. And the fan’s air delivery distance is up to 12 meters. All this air goes through multiple filtration systems that include a pre-filter, antivirus-coated filter, activated carbon filter, and HEPA 13 filter to remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, such as PM2.5, allergies, pollen, 99% of bacteria and viruses — also eliminating gasses and odors. Such superior air quality comes from a DC motor that is silent, consumes low power, and delivers high performance. All of these features come with the Acerpure App support that makes the control easier and more convenient. The App also provides outdoor and indoor air quality monitoring and reminds users to be mindful of poor air quality.
The Innolux Smart Dimming LC Window is a remarkable innovation that addresses the challenge of inadequate natural light in modern compact living spaces. It comes with smart light control that offers automatic dimming and natural lighting. With no color shift, immediate response (<1 sec.), and zero size restrictions, these windows not only preserve the aesthetics of building exterior but also replace messy curtains that makes the interior equally appealing too. It also prevents dust mites from accumulating thus providing cleaner indoor air quality. These energy saving windows also offer anti-glare, shading and UV blocking which substantially diminish building energy consumption and lower greenhouse gas emissions. This product can be used in a variety of settings including homes, office buildings, public areas and so on.
These innovative products from Taiwan exemplify how smart homes are making modern life easier and more convenient. By combating air pollution and enhancing natural light, these technologies contribute to improved health and well-being. Moreover, the seamless integration of smart devices allows homeowners to effortlessly monitor and control their living spaces, enhancing comfort and reducing energy consumption. As these technologies continue to evolve, the dream of a truly smart home inches closer to reality, revolutionizing.
