Smart Tiffin

Cross Platform Mobile App for IoT Enabled Smart Appliances

A “Smart” Technology Partner for a Kitchenware Giant

Business Problem

India’s leading houseware company needed a technology partner to handhold them through building a web and mobile platform for their state-of-the-art range of Smart Appliances.

 

Technology Solution

IncubXperts built a cross-platform mobile app to operate IoT enabled lunch boxes and water bottles. Channels to operate also include Alexa and Google voice skills. 

  • The Mobile App uses messaging service in the cloud (MQTT protocol) to communicate with the Smart Tiffin or Bottle.
  • The App is used to configure the User preferences. i.e. The time of lunch / dinner, the home address, office address, etc. Users can set a schedule for the smart tiffin on a daily or ad-hoc basis. The smart tiffin follows the set schedule and sends push reminders to the user as and when the food is warmed up and ready to eat.  
  • The tiffin is switched on-off either based on the time configured or when the individual enters the geofence created for the tiffin. 
  • Smart bottle users can track their water intake in real-time, set a daily intake target and get periodic reminders to stay hydrated from the app. Detailed hydration history analytics are also available on the app.
  • An accompanying management console provides intelligent analytics around device usage statistics (Active devices in geography, % active users, Trends of usage over time etc).
