SmartHome of The Future
You’ve heard of smart TVs, smartphones and smart cars, but what’s next? How about a SmartHome? They’re closer than you think. From a technological perspective, machines are being adapted to the modern environment at an astonishing rate.
You’ve just left work and it’s been a long day. As soon as you get home, you want to slip into something comfortable and curl up on the couch.
The GPS on your phone knows how long that trip should take, and your air conditioner knows how long it will take to get your house to the optimal temperature, it can turn on at the most efficient moment and hit the perfect temperature as you walk through the door.
There may be components in your home that are starting to grow in intelligence, or are already considered “smart”, like your TV or your phone – maybe even your lightbulbs.
These devices connect to the world around them and can react to your actions and even learn from them, but it takes more than a lot of smart devices to make a SmartHome!
So what is a SmartHome?
The internet of things (IoT) is a concept we’re sure you’re familiar with – it refers to the act of bringing internet connectivity to everyday devices. The most widely used device to receive such connectivity is the smartphone.
The lounge room
Voice control and face recognition will allow your lounge room to not only behave on request, but pre-empt it based on your habits and history. Music, movies and even games could all stream to your devices, and we’ll use apps to control things like smart light to get the lighting just right.
In the kitchen, it will be commonplace for fridges to feature an LCD screen, reporting back on information, and even allowing you to add items to the shopping list on via your phone.
Just about everything will, of course, be voice operable, and connect to apps on your smartphone so you can turn things on and off, set them to clean, or change the temperature from wherever you are in the world, so long as you’re connected.
Outside on the lawn, robotic lawn mowers will have mapped out your yard and be ready to get to work either at set times, or because you’ve accessed it via a connected app and turned it on.
Sensors in your garden beds and pot plants will provide information about moisture, fertilizer levels and temperature. You can then log in to your sprinkler system and turn it on.
Wireless security cameras will allow you to keep an eye on everything no matter where you are, and smart garden lights can not only be operated remotely, but you’ll be able to define each bulb’s color and brightness.
From the information above, a SmartHome can bring you the best utilities and ensure your life will be the optimal care. However, the price of smart devices today is quite expensive. So if you want to have a smart home that is trendy, you need to have a high income. What is the optimal solution that makes smart devices popular to most users?
