Om Shree Mohanty, Founder of Casa Altair Private Limited
The Inception of Casa Altair
The idea came up when the founder, Om Shree Mohanty, got injured due to a bike accident and was on partial bed rest for two weeks. Turning on lights at nights became a challenging task for him, which led him to the idea of controlling appliances wirelessly. Though he was bedridden, he started exploring different ways of how to automate the appliances.
After researching, he came up with his first idea of automating using IR Remote. Initially, it was difficult for him to arrange funds. Om Shree Mohanty believes in the old saying, which says, “If God is making you wait, be prepared to receive more than what you have asked for”. He met Anil Kumar Paul, who gradually became a part of his family. He is an assistant electrical engineer in CPWD and loves inventions. The story of the funding commenced when he saw the founder sitting at his study table. His mother and uncle helped the founder in funding, and soon he came up with his 1st prototype, which was a success at once.
Later, the founder joined a computer coaching class where all his teachers helped him with proper programming, and most importantly, Debasis Behera, Embedded and IoT teacher. Soon after developing and prototyping, he came up with a basic prototype, which was a huge success. That was a basic home automation system with advanced skills and IoT that revolutionised his entire project.
After getting all the basic ideas, Om Shree Mohanty started developing the complete home automation system, which he and his team have made as a product now. With his persistent team, Casa Altair is always keen to tackle any crisis that occurs with business and make it a successful one.
Hardships They Are Tackling
The idea of home automation emerged when the founder, Om Shree Mohanty and his team realised the three main problems:
1. Sustainable Environment
Consumers across the country found an increase in their electricity consumption almost 2-3 times than usual in certain months due to their unmapped usage. Also, COVID-19 has forced consumers to do online jobs, which led to an increase in consumption.
2. Safety and Security
While going out for work or on holiday, people don’t have any product to rely upon for ensuring the security and safety of their
house, which sometimes leads to robbery and disaster inside homes.
3. Disabled, Handicapped, And Old People
Roughly 650 million people live with a disability, and many of them are disabled or older adults. A simple task like controlling appliances sometimes becomes hard work, especially for people who are having leg problems.
So these problems led them to the solution of home automation, which will not only gives people the luxury of controlling appliances but join hands for creating a Sustainable Environment.
