Smart home: An interactive and convenient way of life

October 02, 2020

The ‘Home’ Redefined The world around us is becoming more intelligent and more connected; The wealth of human knowledge is available at our fingertips, cars can drive themselves, and we can have food delivered to our door with a few clicks of a button. Yet we still live in homes much the same way as our grandparents did. But this old way of life is set to drastically change... The 20th Century Home The humble home was built with a specific purpose in mind: to put a roof over our heads and provide a place of residence from which we can base our lives. And 20th century homes achieved this so successfully that we we’ve pretty much stuck to the same recipe to build a home for the last 100 years. Sure, modern homes are larger, built with different materials, more comfortable and filled with cool technology, but fundamentally, they’re an empty shell which we fill with our possessions, creature comforts and warmth of our family. Welcome to the 21st Century Home The home of the 21st century will come to life with smart systems and tools that will enable them to function at greater efficiency, while offering unparalleled convenience to families living in them. They’ll be smart enough to manage and conserve resources, reduce waste, be more secure, and interactive, and we’ll develop a deeper connection with them. Life in the 21st century is set to be more streamlined and productive than ever before. And with major advancements within the home automation industry making this era-defining technology (and its benefits) more affordable than ever, everyone is set to experience the power of home automation. So what benefits can you expect from your home in the near future? The top 6 reasons why living in a smart home is awesome 1. More free time Time is the our most precious resource, and we spend a lot of it performing menial and repetitive tasks that ‘must’ be done. Imagine if all these things happened with a simple voice command or automatically? With smart home technology, they can. Free up time so you can spend it on the things you care about 2. More money in your pocket It’s expensive to live inefficiently. You end up paying for energy you don’t need and your dollar doesn’t go as far. Make your hard earned money go further by installing a smart system, and you can be sure your home will operate more efficiently, saving you up to 30% on your energy bill. 3. Lower environmental impact An inefficient home also results in greater emissions and environmental impact. Improve your home's efficiency and you’ll improve your home's carbon footprint, playing a necessary part in the transition to a more sustainable world. 4. Peace of mind Forgot to turn off your clothes iron? Forgot to lock your door? Or maybe you didn’t. Either way, with a smart home you’ll be able to check your home is safe, secure and risk free wherever you are. No need to go home to check. 5. Convenience The remote control was a revolutionary invention that reinvented the user-experience. Now, you can have a remote control for everything. Or even better, a voice controller. Or even better than that, imagine if your home knew what you liked and was ready for you in advance. Having a smart home is like having a personal butler that caters to your needs. 6. Everyone loves J.A.R.V.I.S. If you’re familiar with Ironman, you’ll remember his personal assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. With home automation, you will one day have your very own J.A.R.V.I.S (although maybe without his quirks). And that’s awesome.
