Smart Technology has changed the way we live our lives. Nearly everything we use on a day to day basis is being controlled by smart technology these days, including air conditioning, heating systems, electronic appliances and so much more. If you are wondering what we are talking about, then here are some places in your home where smart technology would improve your lifestyle tremendously.
The kitchen happens to be the focal point in the home when it comes to cooking meals and hosting dinners. Sadly, it also happens to be the disconnected rooms in the house. Smart technology can change all that. Think of a kitchen with cooktop surfaces, faucets and electronic appliances that can be controlled via smart technology devices, or a keypad or smart tablet that allows access to the other rooms of the house, or accessing music and television channels and even the internet on the refrigerator screen.
Smart technology can also be used in the bathroom to cater to individual user likings and preferences. With the single touch of a button, you can turn on the faucets and adjust details like the steam, shower temperature, spray and room lighting. You can also program the room to automatically recognize different users and adjust the settings accordingly in order to change these details and also play their favorite music tracks through speakers hidden in the tiles.
Heating and Air conditioning Controls
Although most of us would want to enter a home that is either cool during the summer season or warm during the winter season, we cannot afford to keep the air conditioner or heater switched on until we return home. Smart technology on the other hand would help us overcome this issue effectively. You can either program these devices to switch on automatically at a particular time during the day, or connect them to a Wi-Fi system that would enable you to control them with your phone, tablet or any other smart device that has internet connection. This would cut down your energy usage bills to a great extent.
Home Decor Controls
How about a coffee table that can double as an internet browser, entertainment unit and a home unit controller? For instance, Samsung’s SUR40 Microsoft Pixel Sense can do just that, and help you watch TV, surf the internet and even control your home appliances. Although it is not available in the market yet, the day is not far when the device and several other similar devices would enter the market and create ripples whose effects would last for years to come.
Ever consider living in a home that is completely automated, including interior shades that open automatically in the morning, lighting and music systems that switch on automatically the moment you enter the room, and even the water in the swimming pool warming up before you enter it etc. All this can be done with the touch of a finger and innovative smart phone technology.
Modern homes are becoming smarter to ease our lives, thanks to latest gadgets and technology.With so many smart appliances already being used inside homes and outside, it won’t be long before you start controlling your home appliances with your Smartphone.
