More and more companies are trying to pull data on how their customers use their products on a daily basis so they can inform future decisions on how to make that product better. Now, home builders have the Honda Smart Home.
The Honda Smart Home is now making 200 data streams available to site visitors so builders and manufacturers can see how homeowners use energy daily - based on information obtained through their smart home management system. The data available can essentially analyze what parts of the home are 'performing' well in terms of energy and water efficiency.
Honda opened up the aforementioned 200 data streams down to 1-minute increments to the public… anyone… everyone… for April through September 2015. I expect that many researchers are already combing through this massive data set (a 100 MB zip file… 329 MB uncompressed!) and turning the data into insights.
