Intelligent home automation is gaining rapid recognition among consumers around the world. In this day and age, much emphasis is being placed on technologies that make everyday life comfortable, fast and easy. Automation is one of these booming technologies that is experiencing advances in terms of innovation and applications at a supersonic pace. Home automation or intelligent home technology involves the mechanization of thermostats, safety, temperature controls and appliances. The introduction of the Internet of Things (IO) has revolutionized intelligent home automation for the better. It offers automatic control of electronic and electrical devices in homes. Users access these devices through wireless communication. Appliance manufacturers around the world are interested in inventing more efficient and affordable devices to boost sales and ensure customer satisfaction. As a result, the global demand for smart home automation is flooded with innovative home systems.
Highlights of intelligent home automation technology
Smartphones can connect to virtually anything and everything that is equipped with technology. Whether in banking, entertainment or at home. Home technology is evolving at an accelerated pace. The technology is promising, convenient and rapidly evolving. The modern world is reaching a turning point in the use of technology in homes, workplaces and other spheres of everyday human life. Artificial intelligence (AI) is another such technology that finds its place in the daily lives of human beings. The availability of a myriad of automated devices and high-tech concepts at consumer technology and trade fairs such as the Consumer Electric Show (CES) only signal the advance in automation technology. Along with the enhancements, intelligent technology, and in particular intelligent home technology, is expected to be easily accessible. This could be one of the highest points for consumers around the world. Along with the mechanized features of the home and security devices, consumers will witness the advent of technologies such as surveillance cameras for pets and automated shopping. Take a look at some of the imminent trends in home automation:
The closed circuit television or CCTV has been the original security essential when it comes to home automation. With the combination of security cameras and intelligent domotics, they have become increasingly indispensable and sophisticated. Along with standard use for security purposes, cameras installed in homes can help pet owners control their pets’ activities. These cameras have motion sensors with the ability to self-activate when pets move. These devices can also calm pets who are nervous and prone to damage furniture and other household items. For example, the recently launched Petcube Play Interactive camera, a Wi-Fi enabled indoor pet camera that allows pet owners to register their pets via smartphones and other smart devices. It also allows interaction with the help of two-way audio and high-definition video camera. Audible alerts added to the cameras notify users in case of important events.
Futuristic, it’s the buzzword for intelligent home automation. Manufacturers of appliances and modern technologies are interested in adopting technologies that can provide customer satisfaction and convenience. For example, URBANEER has recently developed the first wireless kitchen available on the market in collaboration with the Wireless Power Consortium or WPC. It has automatic kitchen products designed with advanced technology for maximum customer comfort and optimal use of space in the home. These customizable products are considered ideal for modern homes. Following the launch of Ikea’s line of gaming exchange furniture with built-in chargers, many other companies have ventured into wireless charging furniture. This type of furniture transmits electricity with the help of electromagnetic fields through a base and a receiver. From lamps to side tables and stand-alone chargers, companies like Ikea are revolutionizing the home automation industry. Another company, Curvilux, has recently launched its bedside product with built-in wireless charger.
Sleeping Breathing Robot
Improving sleep technology is part of the intelligent home automation revolution taking place around the world. Companies are launching advanced devices that use technology and data to manage users’ health, sleep, exercise and other activities. In addition to fitness trackers, smart beds and pillows, manufacturers are introducing other innovative products. For example, the Sensorwake 2 Smell Clock. This watch wakes up users with a pleasant smell of their choice. It uses soft melodies, dynamic light and a scent that instantly puts the wearer in a good mood. Another pioneering discovery in the field of home automation is the sleep robot. To put this in perspective, Somnox recently introduced the world’s first sleep robot that improves sleep by stimulating breathing. It can also help reduce stress and unwanted thoughts. Sounds such as the heartbeat and guided meditation can help users fall asleep faster.
