Abstract

Smart control plays an increasingly important role in a smart home with wide-spread penetration of Internet of Things. Siemens has been one of the leading companies in building automation, and provides a portfolio on the smart control of the HVAC system and blinds and shutters. However, since the products are expensive and hard to use, Siemens is using a Business to Business model, and considering to change the model toward a customers oriented business model. This project delivers an analysis of the current model and offers a possible business solution.
