Smart home technology has gone from basic security to smart windows that open and close based on the weather and indoor air temperature. Here’s a look at a few smart home innovations that will revolutionize our lives:
- Connectivity is King – The connected home is a huge theme this year that features connected appliances, smoke alarms, lightbulbs and doorbells.
- Talk to Me – There’s a huge focus on voice activated products around the home including voice controlled garbage cans, air purifiers and fridges.
- Home Help – Robots are being used to offer companionship for seniors and there’s also an innovative, lifesaving cane that sends out an alert in the event of an emergency.
- Laundry Lackey – Washing machines that can do multiple loads at once will save us valuable time and there’s even a machine in the works that will fold the laundry!
- Breathe Easy – Sensors can monitor your indoor air for Co2, VOCs, allergens and humidity levels and they’ll also be able to expel bad air and introduce clean air to your home.
- Robot Cleaners – With intelligent visual navigation, app control and powerful suction that cleans in corners, you’ll never need to push a vacuum again!
Smart home technology is always improving and it’s a major selling point because the higher your home’s IQ, the higher the resale value will be! Who knows what the future will bring but one thing’s for sure; smart home technology can provide you and your family convenience and peace of mind.
