Vyas is developed as a recording tool for all home appliances, as a “Ledger”, maintaining the list and details of the appliances associated with the Ohm ML-Bot.
Here, users can define each appliance, including the profile and also maintain details like make, brand, purchase date, warranty information, service date, AMC as well as star rating of the appliance.
Ensure that each and every heavy appliance is distinctly defined in Vyas, with proper categorization, to ensure that the specific appliance is included in the detection and analysis processes
Once appliances are defined by the user, then only these appliances/appliance categories will be included in the detection & analysis. (Any false appliance will also falsely be displayed in the detection). On this basis, a specific unique machine learning (ML) model is built that would be applicable to this home.
Alternatively, if NO appliances are defined, the general global model would apply, and relying on the inherent ML capabilities of the Ohm Bot, the outcome would be more general, and lower in accuracy.
Every heavy appliance must be distinctly defined under Vyas to ensure that the appliance is included in the detection, ML (Machine Learning) and analysis processes. Vyas is important to identify & help the Ohm Bot distinguish the number of identical appliances.
Appliances not defined in Vyas will not be properly detected, and this would reflect under Others.
The importance of accurate appliance information comes into play for advanced diagnosis, where the analysis is based on the Appliance Model, and the working of the appliance during the diagnostic test is compared to the BEE database, which has threshold values defined. Using this, we can provide feedback as to whether the appliance is operating in healthy, unhealthy or critical mode
