Believe it or not, the future is already here at this moment. Smart homes are necessary for a healthy, safe, secure, and sustainable life. Smart homes equipped with all the advanced technologies and futuristic devices are in-synced in an intelligently integrated ecosystem. In this ever-increasing smartness, you can either go old-school or replace traditional modular switches with Toyama Electric’s smart switches and start controlling your existing lights and fans through three different ways to control Devices-Home Automation.

According to Toyama’s Director and CTOMohammed Omar, these three ways are

  • Smart Remote:You can control various electronic devices and appliances in your home or office using a single remote control. With a smart remote, you can control lights, AC and other home automation with a single device rather than multiple apps or remote controls.
  • WizHom App:Toyama’s WizHom smart home automation app is an app that allows you to control and manage various aspects of your home, such as lighting, temperature etc. A single app to control your entire home and automagically manage everything from the convenience of your phone.
  • Voice Commands:Control a smart home with a voice assistant, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, which allows you to control various electronic devices and appliances using voice commands. Voice assistants can also be integrated with smart home devices and systems, allowing users to control multiple devices with a single voice command.

Toyama was founded by Mr SMM Azeez in 1989. The visionary firm brought home automation and lighting controls to the country in the mid-2000s. The leadership of Toyam has been passed down to Mr Azeez’s son, Mr Mustafa Kamal, and is currently led by Mr Omar.

With his expertise in Computer Science, Mr Omar ensures that the company’s products and solutions meet the latest industry standards and set new trends. The three generations of the family have made Toyama Electric a market leader in the lighting industry and continue to take it to new heights.

In an exclusive interview with CIOLOOK INDIA, Mr Omar spoke at length about Toyama and how they are transforming the present by ushering people’s homes into tomorrow’s technological horizons.

The highlights of the interview are given ahead.

Being an experienced leader, share your opinion on how adopting modern technologies like AI and ML impacts the lighting solution space and how your company is adapting to the change. 

AI and ML are disruptive and are here to stay. AI and ML algorithms can be used to develop a self-learning system that automatically adjusts the lighting based on the user’s preferences and behaviour. They can be used to optimize energy usage and reduce costs by analyzing usage patterns and predicting future consumption. They can also analyze data from various sensors and predict when a device or system will likely fail, allowing for proactive maintenance. AI and ML can significantly enhance the efficiency, comfort, and safety of lighting and home automation systems and are here to stay.

Considering the current industry scenario, what challenges do you face, and how do you drive your firm to overcome them? 

The trend of making false promises and failing to provide adequate post-sales support to generate quick profits is gaining momentum, which could ultimately result in a loss of customer interest in the industry’s advancements. To counteract this trend, our approach is straightforward: to under-promise, over-deliver, and prioritize customer satisfaction.

What would you advise budding entrepreneurs who aspire to venture into the lighting solution space? 

My advice to anyone intending to venture into this exciting industry is this:

*Focus on Innovation: Keep up with the latest technological advancements and trends in the lighting industry and use them to develop innovative and differentiated products or services.

*Prioritize Customer Needs: Understand the customer’s pain points, preferences, and requirements, and develop solutions that cater to their specific needs.

*Be Passionate: Pursue your venture with a deep passion and commitment to your vision, and be persistent in overcoming the challenges that come your way.
