We’ve talked about the Internet of Things (IoT) a lot over the past few years. If you’re not familiar with the term, it refers to smart home devices using internet connectivity and software to provide users with additional functionality that makes their lives easier. The IoT has evolved dramatically since its inception in the early 2000s and continues to grow as more homes get connected.
The kitchen of the future
The kitchen of the future is a place where you can cook, clean and relax. It’s where you entertain guests in style. It’s also an office for working on your laptop or tablet. And finally it’s a dining room where you can enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family members.
Smart Locks and Access Control
Smart locks are a great way to keep your home and family safe. They allow you to remotely monitor who is coming into your house, as well as lock or unlock the door. Smart locks work by using Bluetooth technology to connect with an app on your smartphone. When someone tries to unlock it with their key, the lock will notify you via text message and let you know who is at the door so that you can decide whether or not they are allowed inside of your home.
Smart locks come in many different styles from traditional deadbolts that require a key (keyless entry), to electronic push button locks that don’t require any sort of physical key at all! You can even find smart doorbells which will alert whoever is inside when someone rings their bell outside so they know who’s there before opening up their front door!
Home Monitoring and Surveillance
Home monitoring and surveillance is a key component of home security. With the rise of smart devices, it’s easier than ever to monitor your home remotely.
- Surveillance Cameras: These are one of the most popular ways to keep an eye on what’s happening inside your house when you’re not there. They come in many different shapes and sizes, from traditional dome cameras with wired connections to IP cameras that connect over WiFi or cellular networks (and everything in between).
- Smart Locks: Another way people can keep tabs on their homes while away is by using smart locks that let them open doors remotely from their smartphone or tablet–or even just unlock them without having a key! This can be helpful for guests who need access but don’t want to carry around something as bulky as keys all day long; it also ensures no one can get into your home without permission (provided they know how).
Home automation is a growing trend that has been making waves in the consumer electronics industry for years. It’s an exciting concept that allows users to control their home from afar using mobile devices, voice commands and other IoT technologies.
But what exactly is it?
Home automation refers to an integrated system of products that work together to make your life easier–and more automated! You might have heard of smart thermostats like Nest or Ecobee, which operate based on your schedule and preferences so you don’t have to think about adjusting them manually every day (or even week). Other examples include lighting systems that turn on automatically when someone enters the room; or door locks with built-in sensors so they’ll lock behind you after entering or exiting a building without having someone stand there pressing buttons manually every time they leave or enter their home/office building (which may seem trivial but I promise you’ll appreciate not having do this once you’ve tried it).
Smart home technology is becoming more accessible and user friendly.
Smart home technology is becoming more accessible and user friendly. In fact, it’s already in your kitchen!
In the future, we’ll have smart locks and access control systems that can tell you when a door has been opened or closed and show you who did it. If you’re out of town on vacation, your house will be monitored by cameras that record activity inside your home while also sending alerts if something happens such as an intruder breaking in or smoke detectors going off. Home monitoring and surveillance is another aspect of smart living that will allow users to stay connected with their families even when they’re away from home. Finally, home automation allows homeowners to remotely control lights (and other appliances) throughout their homes via mobile apps or voice commands through speakers like Amazon Echo Dot which provides handsfree voice commands through Alexa Voice Service (AVS).
The future of home automation is bright, and it’s only going to get better. As more people are introduced to the benefits of smart home technology, there will be an increased demand for products and services that allow us to live more efficiently and comfortably.
