Interconnectivity is Key
The rise of the smart home
In times gone by, people led much simpler lives at a very different pace. However, in modern times, we need a far more intuitive and conducive living space; our lives these days are incredibly hectic and busy, necessitating homes that require much less effort to run and operate on our part. After all, interconnectivity has always been vital to our development as a species—and this is just as true in our modern world as it was at an earlier stage of our evolution.
Is that a smart home?
A smart home is a home that runs on Internet-enabled devices for more convenient operation, monitoring, and management. With the use of a mobile app or simply voice commands, people can control different aspects of their home such as lighting, climate control, security cameras, electronic devices, and any other device of consequence.
The seamless integration technologies make smart homes an increasingly popular choice for many people.
Why smart homes are so popular nowadays
Smart home technology can change your life and allow you to live in ways that you may have never thought possible before. The normal practice observed in most homes today is for occupants to regulate the use of most devices in person. Turning on and switching off of most devices has to be done by hand. For instance, if your room is too cold or too warm, then you would have to walk down to the AC thermostat to turn it on/off or to adjust the set temperature. The same routine will have to be observed to switch off the AC should the room become too hot.
Although such daily routines are necessary, they can also be cumbersome for many people. With home automation technology, however, you can control all your devices directly from your mobile phone or even your voice (if you have a smart speaker such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home). The opportunity to control and monitor your devices as seamlessly as possible is the reason why people see the need to integrate smart technology in their homes.
Which devices can I control with smart home technology?
The devices you can control with smart technology from the comfort of your bed, sofa or anywhere in the world with an internet connection are numerous, but here are some common devices below.
- Air conditioners
- Television sets
- Home theaters
- Printers and other computer devices
- Sound system
- Security cameras
