In the past, a smart house was only part of fiction, but with the help of Internet of Things (IoT) and the power of Artificial Intelligence, fantasy turns into reality. You can make your house intelligent with the help of home devices that will deal with many tasks and automatically take certain decisions. Different fields in the automation industry focus on security, utility, control, and security, but also entertainment products that are getting better and more productive with the help of Machine Learning.
Here are a few things that IoT will bring into the Home Automation Industry.
Standardizing Control of Devices
Products that vary from air conditioners, refrigerators, coffee makers and even sprinkles could be controlled through a platform that can be accessed by different devices like a smartphone, a wearable device, even voice commands, irrespective of the product’s brand.
Self-Maintenance and Self-Awareness
The products will become self-diagnosing and know when they need to get maintenance. Alternatively, this option could be applied to the smart devices so that they can be self-aware – for example, a fridge will analyze its contents and notify the user that they must refill the stock. You’ll no longer need to make a shopping list. The fridge could send it to you and even tell you which items can be found in the supermarket and how to get there!
Security and Privacy
An essential aspect for the home automation to evolve is to be secure so that we can trust it. Video doorbells will get to recognize the homeowners, and the relatives, alerting the owners of the house when someone is at the door. The owner can unlock the door remotely, and if there’s a break in, the information can be automatically sent to the police department.
Entertainment Taken To a New Level
Imagine listening to music in whatever room you walk into. Add some preferential lights to create the perfect mood and use the voice assistant to customize your preferences.
Optimizing the House
The house will improve your consumption of energy by analyzing your use of power and minimizing wastage. If a room is not occupied, sensors will notify the devices and the AC and lights will be turned off.
The applications of IoT in everything we have inside a house are countless, and developers, creators, and manufacturers should work together in creating high-quality products that integrate well with our homes. It is the right time to innovate our houses too, now that the IoT and AI are thriving in many other fields of work.
