Evolution Of Smart Home And Its Impact On Our Life
On a hot day, John is returning home from a very tiring day at the office. While he was on the tram, he opens up the app from where he manages all his smart appliances. He sets the temperature of the room to his preference and sets commands for all the lighting systems and thermostat.
As he reaches home, he finds out there’s a delivery of fruits and grocery which the smart refrigerator ordered as the inventory ran out. He returns to a soothingly cold, welcoming and secure home. The house is well lit, the oven is heated and the smart speaker played his favorite jazz songs as he ran shower to his preferred temperature. He manages all the mundane chores of the house through smart appliances and spends the time saved with his family or watching his favorite series on Netflix.
Sounds dreamy and futuristic? It definitely isn’t! Everything mentioned above is possible and happening all because of the power of convenience and comfort, technology has created for us.
The need to receive instant information, the easy connectivity with internet, the mobile-first lifestyle and higher expectations from digital services gave birth to convenience technology. Earlier we used Wi-fi just for browsing, now it can be integrated to all the devices we use, to make them smarter. The idea of “always on the phone, always connected” runs the convenience technology industry. It makes access to real-time information easy.
Smart home technology is an eco-friendly way to save energy, it also saves a lot of time of its users. According to a research, IoT appliances save 30 mins/ per day of an average user and also found out that home security will account for an estimated $47 billion of the total security market by 2020. It’s gaining momentum because of its cost-effectiveness, easy installation and energy saving aspect. Also, home insurance covers only the cause, not the source. For e.g., if your refrigerator breaks down one day, the insurance claim would only cover the installation of a new compressor but not the refrigerator. The available coverage is limited.
A number of international research firms have estimated that there will be over 25 million smart devices operating by 2020. Tech giants have also proclaimed that smart tech industry will cross $15 trillion by then. Being able to control the appliances in your home from anywhere in the world is a way technology is helping create convenience.

The Smart Things Multipurpose Sensor is great for monitoring doors, windows, cabinets, or any off-limits area. The sensor detects whether it is open or closed as well as monitors temperature and vibration, allowing your home to react using “automation” that you have set up in the Smart Things App – send a notification, turn on smart lights, turn the heat on, sound a siren and more. For e.g., if you get a multi-purpose sensor installed on your door, once you reach the doorway of your home in the evening, it will automatically turn on all the lights for you.
The Smart Things Motion Sensor allows you to protect your home by triggering alerts if there’s an unexpected motion, keeping you and your family safe. Once the sensor is set up and connected, you can set up Automation to receive alerts if there is any motion, tell the lights to turn on and off as you come and go or set your thermostat based on the motion or temperature readings. For e.g. get a motion sensor installed in your living room and have the system turn-off the lights and lower the thermostat when no one is around.
