We have waited for home automation awesomeness since The Jetsons, and now that it is here it is better than we ever imagined. Today home automation, which is usually home automation and home security combined, is one incredible tech tool that battles villains like a superhero while providing a total geek-out while you remotely manage enabled devices. And we can’t help loving it.
Home Automation is a Growing Industry
In its early stages, home automation was pricy and only realistically accessible to the very wealthy or used in government. Due to falling technology costs and increased awareness in home automation, the industry has grown from $4.5 billion in 2013 to a projected $14.7 billion in 2018. Additionally, consumers are not just tech savvy; they are tech expectant, in that they are almost astonished if something is not connected or automated where possible. And if it isn’t, there is probably someone working on it right now.
Home Automation is Practical, But Cool
It’s true. Home automation is becoming more and more practical with every new product and application. We love that smart thermostats can help us reduce energy consumption and save us money. It is also hard not to be impressed with conveniences such as the ability to lock and unlock doors remotely, or having music turn on at particular cues.But the cool factor is certainly there when those practical features are responding to you.
Increased Efficiency? No Problem.
In the home environment, simple things can become distractions and time wasters like being pulled away from tasks to answer the door, or having an unsuitable indoor climate for the task at hand. Instead, today’s blend of technology allows users to create an atmosphere most conducive to work by integrating smart technologies with lights, thermostats, and home security systems.Users simply use their smartphones or other devices to modify the surroundings or tap into security cameras to see who is at the door.
Oh, And There’s This.
As much as we do not want to admit it, there is just something strangely compelling about being able to tap into the security system and see what is going on at home while we are away. Certainly we love to know that the house is okay, but we are even more curious about what the our cat or dog does while we gone and confirm it is a life to be envied. Even Astro never had it this good.
