Currently, smart home devices are programmed to respond primarily to people’s commands, but based on current trends and technologies that are growing year by year, the industry is constantly moving towards a future where home devices will not only follow your commands, but anticipate your needs before you know you speak.
You start your day with a smartwatch that scans your daily schedule and adjusts to it. Your shower automatically turns on and heats to the desired temperature. By the time you do all this your electric car is already ready for solar panel charging and the day could begin. This is one of the smart home versions that has existed for 10 years. And now, experts predict that turning the lights on and off with your voice will completely transition to Internet management.
As artificial intelligence advances rapidly, it is a completely normal thing that your home can truly learn everything about you. Of course the more our houses know about us, the better their care will be. Also, with the development of robotics, machines will help us with our homework, such as cleaning, cooking, and many other options. With the help of new sensors, they will be able to monitor your health, if threatened by a cold they will automatically warn you and prevent it from occurring.
This automation will cost a lot. Consumers are predicted to spend an estimated $123 billion by 2021. In addition to the television, it will connect to the Internet, manufacturers also offer devices to fully monitor the home by 2023. If more and more people embrace this new technology, the industry is ready to work and introduce many more facilities to satisfy their customers.
Of course, it should be borne in mind that when you connect a device to the Internet, it automatically becomes a target for hackers. When I talk about this, I primarily mean devices that can unlock your home from afar, etc. but thanks to cybersecurity, this problem is easily solved.
One thing is for sure, massive technological advances will become much more than what is available today. The company is heavily working on so-called software that tracks a person’s habits like the music they like to listen to, the weather forecast, and the like.
As mentioned earlier, robots will play a large and important role in smart homes. From smart vacuuming, dog robots to kids, your furniture changing and adjusting to suit your needs, all the way up to a smart robot arm run by a computer graphics company. A robotic arm could replace you in your kitchen, say it cuts vegetables, helps clean it, and could be especially useful for business people or disabled users. It has not started production yet, it’s just ideas, and before production, they would have to make it safe so as not to hurt their users by introducing special sensors.
You also have so-called health applications that make this technology special. The cameras and sensors built into the fridge will warn you if you eat sweet and unhealthy things in large quantities. Sensors could even appear in toilets to see if there were any health problems by scanning human waste. Homes will also have their own sensors to monitor problems such as water pollution, pest infestation, etc. A post-apocalyptic world ruled by robots has never been closer.
Finally, we will summarize all the information given on how smart homes can improve people’s lives in the future. All this scanning, which will be done in the future by smart homes, may quite raise concerns about security for users. As we enter the 2020 market, we expect the products to become more standardized than they have been before. There is a greater chance that people with little interest in technology will easily accept and see the obvious benefits of a smart home without the headache and enjoy the benefits they bring in the future. The question often arises when we will need to introduce this new technology. We will likely one day have these smart devices in our homes whether we want it or not. One thing is for sure, the smart home era is already slowly approaching a steady decline in prices and could soon conquer the entire world.
