The smart home a few years back was the exclusive domain of the affluent and required a high amount of technical expertise to be put into place. With miniaturization the buzz word of any technological evolution home automation has come a long way; today most of the devices are affordable and can be installed by just reading an instruction manual. Mobile computing, wireless connectivity and artificial intelligence have redefined “Smart Homes”
A sneak-peek into the modern day smart home…
In this age of wireless charging and remote connectivity, homes are being lit up in style. From mood defining lighting systems which integrate music, acoustics, colour, fragrance, shading, the art of concealment and every possible design principle and the entire setting aligned to a touch on your mobile phone the possibilities are limitless.
Imagine the lights talking to the music system, the power systems, the security and a host of other devices. These devices are built to understand the preferences of the home owner and redesign the experience to suit her moods, this technological evolution is really incredible.
Imagine the refrigerator talking to the local grocer or placing an order with an online store and ordering for milk, bread or other stuff to be stocked up sounds bizarre doesn’t it …but that’s what IOT is doing to our homes.
Interconnected devices, self examining technology, self correcting mechanisms, updated security, decision making intelligence and more is IOT at work.
Advantages include peace of mind, power saving capacity, time saving mechanisms, effort saving devices, economical alternatives and a horde of other benefits.
