Visitors had their traditional concept of home overturned when they stepped into a two-floor "smart home" at the new energy and energy saving exhibition of the 12th China Hi-Tech Fair, which opened on Nov 16.
Only with a single wireless control, people can turn on and off lights, close doors and windows, control home appliances and even keep a close eye on their homes through mobile phones away from home.
More surprisingly, the windows in the home will close automatically when there is strong wind and heavy rain; when there is a gas leak, the windows will open automatically.
The "smart home" is just one of the highlights at the exhibition, which gathers cutting-edge environmental-friendly technologies applicable to daily life.
The exhibitors, mostly local enterprises, displayed their technologies and products including new energy vehicles, energy-saving lighting devices, application of solar and wind energies, energy-saving architecture materials and home heating systems.
A pioneer in developing new energy car, BYD debuted its lighting products at the exhibition, attracting a large crowd of visitors.
The enterprise's variety of lighting products feature high illumination level and no harm to people's eyes, which can be for commercial and civil uses.
In addition, the BYD displayed its fully-electric e6 and dual model F3DM.
"Application of energy-saving and pollution-free technologies to daily life has become a trend in the current recourse shortage and deteriorating polloution," said a pavilion staff with Green Eco-manufacture Hi-tech Co(GEM), surnamed Chen.
The Shenzhen-headquartered GEM displayed its wood plastic composites (WPC), which are made from e-wastes, wood chips, straws and other recyclable materials and can be widely used in outdoors decoration, garden construction and sanitation facilities.
"It is the second time for the annual Hi-Tech to set up the exhibition of new energy and energy saving. The exhibition of new energy and energy saving provides a platform for enterprises to display their achievements in the field of new energy and energy saving, which will become a procurement platform of the related products," said Liu Jin, a visitor from Jiangxi province, who has visited the fair for five years.
A summit on the development of new energy and low-carbon economy will be held during the six-day fair.
