“Our goal is to enhance your lifestyle by integrating cutting-edge technology into every aspect of your space.”
Sai Prakash AV (Founder & CEO, Prak Studio)
Hyderabad, often referred to as the “Pearl City of India,” is a hub of innovation and progress. In the heart of this dynamic city lies Prak Studio, a pioneering Home and Office automation company that is at the forefront of transforming living spaces, turning ordinary homes into smarter, efficient, and convenient places. With Prak Studio’s state-of-the-art home automation systems, one can effortlessly manage various aspects of their home such as lighting, fan, AC, TV, IR devices, security, entertainment and more.
The Genesis of Prak Studio
To trace the genesis of Prak Studio, we delve into the journey of its Founder & CEO, Sai Prakash AV. After completing his M. Tech in Computer Science from BITS Hyderabad, Sai embarked on a journey in the software industry, initially joining Mobizz. However, his true passion led him to further his education with a Master’s degree in Management Studies at IIM Vishakhapatnam.
After a brief stint in Axis Bank’s Technical Division, Sai Prakash realised that his heart wasn’t in it. In his words, “I yearned for a more meaningful path that would give me a chance to create an impact.” That’s when the idea of starting his own firm took shape.
He delved into extensive market research and explored various technology-based product ideas that could reshape the lives of middle and upper-middle-class citizens in the country. Home Automation emerged as the perfect avenue to bring his vision to life. Thus, Prak Studio LLP (Previously named Fave Labs) was incepted.
“While other players existed in the market, their solutions were often prohibitively expensive. I was determined to stand out by listening closely to the end-users. I wanted to understand their needs, pinpoint areas for improvement, and gauge their perceptions of this technology,” Sai shares while recalling the firm’s inception days.
Dedicated Support: Customers & Partners
In the arena of home automation, customer support goes far beyond just troubleshooting. It’s about empowering the customers to live smarter and safer. It’s about ensuring that their smart home journey is not just hassle-free but also a delightful experience.
Partner support, Prak Studio believes, is the cornerstone of success. The firm views its partners as more than just collaborators; as Sai says, “They are integral to our mission of making homes smarter and lives better. With our partners, we forge paths of innovation, creating tailored solutions that bring the future of smart living to homes worldwide.”
The Home Automation Difference
Prak Studio provides it all, ranging from Smart Lighting, Fan Control, Smart IR Remote, RGB Lighting Control, Smart Blinds and Curtains, and Staircase Automatic Lighting to Wardrobe/Cabinet Automatic Lighting, Heavy Duty Appliances, Smart Home Theatre Solutions, Smart Lock, Gate Automation, Sensor Based Lighting, and more.
In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. Home Automation is a crowded marketplace. To stand out is a daunting task but here’s how Prak Studio wins it:
First and foremost, Prak Studio invests in research and development to bring cutting-edge technology to the forefront. Its products seamlessly integrate with the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and voice recognition, providing unmatched performance. Furthermore, the firm prioritises user-friendliness, ensuring that anyone, regardless of their tech expertise, can easily set up and manage their smart home. No complex manuals or technical knowledge is required, as in Sai’s words, “Our aim is to make your journey into the world of smart living hassle-free.”
Prak Studio understands that every home is unique, therefore customisation stays at the top. From lighting and climate control to security and entertainment, Prak’s range covers all aspects of home automation. The firm’s commitment to safeguarding security and privacy is also commendable as it has integrated robust encryption and multiple layers of security into its products, ensuring that customer’s data and homes remain impervious to cyber threats.
Unlike other market players, Prak makes the experience hassle-free for its customers by eliminating the inconvenience of managing multiple apps for various devices. Its offerings seamlessly integrate with popular smart home platforms and voice assistants, creating a centralised control hub for the home.
Sustainability also holds a significant role in Prak Studio as the firm’s automation solutions are designed to optimise energy consumption, helping to reduce carbon footprint and energy bills.
And of course, the team stays on its toes to assist customers, no matter how minor or significant. “When you choose our products, you’re not just buying a device; you’re gaining access to a dedicated support team. We’re here to assist you every step of the way, ensuring a hassle-free experience,” mentions the Founder.
Addressing Security and Privacy Concerns
Prak Studio stays ahead of potential threats by doing regular security audits and vulnerability assessments to identify and address potential weaknesses in the systems. Timely updates in the form of firmware and software enhancements help in enhancing the security and overall performance of the products.
User Control and Informed Consent
The granular access management by Prak allows users to decide who can access and control their devices. Remote access is secured through advanced encryption and stringent authentication mechanisms.
“Our incident response plan outlines how we respond to and mitigate security breaches. We make sure to always maintain open and transparent communication with the users,” reiterates Mr Prakash.
