IOT Application for Smart Lighting and Energy Conservation


The Challenge

Taazaa was charged with the challenge to establish scalable communication between the various sensors and Amazon IoT platform, which includes developing sensor data visualization and control web applications, creating visualizations of data stored in the Amazon DynomoDB or other related storage systems.


In addition, we were charged with developing industry-specific visualizations and control applications to aggregate and summarize sensor data to improve reporting. We were also tasked with developing enhanced dashboards and features such as control switches and other related facilities and building management tools.


Taazaa approached the challenge through a full architectural redesign. We dedicated a significant amount of resources into researching the right product on the Amazon platform


for computing, storage, database, analytics, etc. ultimately designing a conceptual database and local data store, innovating a User Experience design to include landing, setting, activation, dashboard, sensor control, and control widgets.


To support the redesign of infrastructure for media storage and exchange of data, we created analytic tools to provide a statistics dashboard and enhanced media streaming to display video, images, and allow for image download. We also developed sensor data visualization and control web applications, creating an advanced visualization and correlation of data stored in the Amazon DynomoDB or other related storage systems.

The Solution

This platform helps the consumer to conduct an in-depth and thorough review of the home current energy usage, step by step plan for lowering energy bills, finding available rebates offered by Utility providers and reducing environmental impact. The realtor version of the app includes few additional features like automatic lead generation, social marketing, contact management, lead conversion, white-label reports, and payment processing.


To make the analysis process agile, we created an Android and iOS app with a survey. Users fill out a form with all necessary data in WEB Audit Tool right from their smartphone. All apps are built separately, but they are connected as a part of one system. This solution helps to avoid functionality duplicates and gives a possibility to develop and release each part of the system separately.
