Smart Lighting Evolution: From Obedient to Intelligent (Part 1)

The term “smart lightning” is widely known nowadays, though the history of the technology dates back to the late 90’s. The first solutions were quite primitive. About 20 years ago light timers connected to outdoor lamps started to be used to turn them on and off at certain times, and this solution might have been called “smart”. 5 years later, with the introduction of motion sensors, lighting systems became more complex and evolved. Half a decade later, motion sensors have combined with daylight sensors to switch the light on only when it is dark.

10 Advantages of Elm: Moving to Functional Programming in the Frontend

Elm as a functional language for front-end development that is well known in small circles of experienced web-developers. Its’ syntax is similar to Haskell, but less complex and designed specifically for building web-based user interfaces. Elm has some definite advantages in comparison with React.js. Nonetheless, it’s not very popular within the front-end community. To find out why that is, we talked with DSR’s web-development team.

World Ruled by Robots?

Some people believe that artificial intelligence does not exist, while others watch Sci-Fi movies and devise survival plans for when robots rise against us. Artificial intelligence today is weak, meaning many of the tasks and operations being performed now are limited in scope, but that is continuing to change every day. The development of AI is building at a rapid pace and is poised to change how we interact with the world around us on a daily basis.

What is Dotdot?

A bit of history — the creation of Zigbee standard required a lot of effort, time and knowledge to construct. Dotdot is an alias for ZCLIP, which stands for Zigbee Cluster Library (ZCL) over IP. It is about exposing ZCL functionality to the IP world, in contrast to classic Zigbee that is always isolated from IP networks and requires a Zigbee gateway to connect Zigbee mesh with the outer world. This would become a bridge between IoT and other networks. Different manufacturers have Zigbee Gateway solutions mostly for connectivity of Zigbee network with cloud.

CES 2017 Impressions

Every year CES is the culmination of the latest and greatest in technology and invention. From TVs to cars, cellphones to virtual reality, industrial grade hardware to watches and players, everything is competing for consumer attention and it’s barely possible for a person to see everything displayed. CES 2016 was all about TVs, virtual reality and drones. 2017, while still following last year’s trend, moved towards the Smart Home, Smart Appliances, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The entire IoT industry was there: starting from end-to-end solutions to wireless connectivity chips and platforms. This includes the well-positioned ZigBee Alliance booth, which included the products showcase powered by DSR with an impressive 105 products from 30+ companies for both Residential and Commercial markets.

Keep Calm and Implement ZigBee Security

At the end of last year, a group of researchers from Cognosec presented their “ZigBee exploited” report at the BlackHat conference in the USA. They demonstrated a tool that allows an intruder to open your doors, shut up motion sensors off and even turn the lights off in your bedroom, of course only if these devices are controlled via ZigBee. IT and for the most part non-IT sources repeated the news many times with excessive drama effect and as a result, we had got a categorical accusation of lack of security in ZigBee and even the entire IoT. Based on the forecast that there will be 29 billion of IoT devices in the not so far 2020, “experts” convinced their readers that it is not the problem of the future but the present and that all devices are vulnerable. Now when the panic has calmed down, let’s see what happened in terms of ZigBee.

Developing SPA with Angular Material

Fast, convenient, tricky. These are the first three words that come to mind if someone asks how it feels to develop with Angular Material. The project’s documentation states the following right on the first page: “For developers using AngularJS, Angular Material is both a UI Component framework and a reference implementation of Google's Material Design Specification. This project provides a set of reusable, well-tested, and accessible UI components based on Material Design.” Let’s take a close look at whether it is 100% true based on our extensive experience of developing SPAs with Angular Material here at DSR Corporation.

Modern Media and IP Video Systems: How to Choose the Best Formats and Technologies

Today there exist two standard ways of providing video content – “video on demand” and “live streaming.” “Video on demand” assumes that a client requests static media content from a server. “Live streaming,” means that media content is generated real-time and translated through a server to several clients. In addition, media consumers use multiple types of devices for both ways of video playback:...

Hybrid Mobile Apps in the Real World

Nowadays most people have heard about hybrid mobile app frameworks and their advantages. There are so many of them and each promises everything you dreamed about for a cross-platform mobile applications development. The idea is nice and simple: hosting a web application inside of the user’s smartphone or tablet with the ability to have a single codebase, involve web developers, reduce costs, decrease time-to-market, and so on. However, we can see that most of the mobile applications are still native and platform specific. Why is that? Experienced developers (especially those who had a really hard time working with early hybrid applications) may notice that the real life cross-platform mobile app development process is far from perfect to make it a standard. DSR Corporation team has rich experience in PhoneGap application development and knows all (or almost all) pros and cons of this technology. In this blog we aim to summarize our experience and share the risks that should be considered when using a hybrid mobile app frameworks.

Why You Should Consider Node.JS as a Backend Option for Your Project

In the early 2000s, when the web was small, servers were slow and client machines were even slower, developers faced the C10K problem. The problem was about concurrently handling 10,000 client connections on a single server machine. As a solution, multi-process and multi-threaded architectures (a new process or thread per each request) became very popular in mainstream software platforms for web development. But the web continued to grow...

The Real Reasons Behind Most ZigBee Interoperability Problems

Interoperability is a buzzword that we hear often when talking about wireless protocols, including ZigBee. Being an already trusted but still young standard, ZigBee itself can raise many questions when reading the official documentation. However, that is not the topic of this blog. With over a decade of experience in wireless communications software development and 7 years working closely with ZigBee, we have seen many cases where although the specification gives adequate description, developers invent their own bicycle. Our extensive experience integrating and working with a large number of sensors from different manufacturers provided us the valuable insight we are sharing in this blog.

Resolving iPhone apps GPS accuracy problems

We have been creating mobile solutions for our customers for almost a decade. But with each project's experience come interesting challenges. Recently, we developed an iPhone application that is now available in the Apple Store. It required us to determine a user's location at various points using GPS. It turned out that in developing GPS-based mobile applications, the accuracy of the coordinates can vary. These inaccuracies appear on the screen as sudden jumps in a user's location on the map and are especially visible if the application is trying to plot a route that the user is traveling. These inaccuracies are the result of not discarding bad coordinate points and not detecting fluctuation of points in a route.

The Importance of Project Estimations

We wanted to share our approach to project estimation based on our extensive experience on a variety of projects. Early project estimation is the key to proper project definition and communication with customers. It helps establish project attributes (such as cost, duration, resources, and tasks), set expectations, and ensure that all parties involved have the same understanding of the project objectives.
