In 2019, the biggest question people ask is, why? In 2019 there is no dearth of home automation solutions but, this was made as a proof of concept in 2015 as a solution to a big problem in home automation solutions at the time – Wi-Fi stability.
Before Jio Fiber or even any form of Fiber infrastructure accessible to the public in India, ISP’s had strict control over bandwidth and pricing, meaning that not only did the Wi-Fi service taper toward the end of the month, but ISP hardware would regularly malfunction and Wi-Fi technology was just not stable enough to control any significant devices with.
Our Bluetooth-RF Home Automation system, (BRF), removed Wi-Fi from this loop all together. With newer Bluetooth technology coming into phones, along with my brother, I created a central “hub” which connects to a phone through Bluetooth and transmits to a receiver via RF– allowing easy integration with Smartphones and long range – all without using any Wi-Fi!
