As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows, it’s poised on the brink of permeating our dwelling places, invisibly occupying the cell waves and fiber optics of our home hub. A home responsive to touch and presence, a home that can adapt to our unique behavior patterns through a learning algorithm.
Technically speaking, our working definition of a smart home combines artificial intelligence, energy efficiency and wireless technology to create a common communication system in service to a responsive home environment. The smart home means technologies such as smart thermostats, appliances and lighting wirelessly work together to increase residents’ comfort and convenience in their homes. Through software, sensors and other hardware, residents can even monitor their homes when they are away. The potential for smart homes ranges from changing the paradigm of energy usage to permitting the steadily growing aging population to age in place.
Join us as we dive into the varieties of smart home technology and how to prepare for the future.
