Three Ways IoT will Revolutionize Our Homes

IoT Homes are Revolutionizing the Way We Live
By 2022, the global smart home market is estimated to grow to around 53.45 billion U.S. dollars, according to data published by Statista. Whether you’re a fan of smart technology or not, there’s a definite general movement toward intelligent homes that will revolutionize the way we live. Coming into contact with new technologies is becoming easier and more natural than ever. In particular, there are three IoT trends that appear to be dominating home design and comfort. 

Smart homes make life easier
Without any shade of doubt, one of the benefits from having the opportunity to use smart home devices is that they help to streamline our lives. These clever devices, the ones that rely on artificial intelligence, are excellent at learning the behavioral patterns of everyone living in the home and can automate the execution of daily tasks and chores accordingly. For example, machines like Roomba, which clean the floors in your home for you, or the Nest Thermostat Solution, which relies on smartphone integration to control the temperature at home.

Smart homes save energy and take care of the environment
We have to start finding ways of reducing the amount of energy and help protect our planet. In 2017, about 39% of the total energy consumed in the U.S. was used by residential and commercial buildings, as confirmed by the U.S. Energy Information Association. The good news is that technology developed for smart homes has all the necessary qualities to tackle the problem of high residential energy use. There are smart devices designed to control heating, cooling, and the power needed for electrical appliances, among other things.

Smart homes keep us safe and secure
IoT-connected doorbells and cameras, which connect to smartphones, give us the opportunity to see exactly who’s knocking on our door in real time, whether we’re at home or not. Not only does this help us to keep unwanted people out, but it also means we can let teenagers in if they return home from school early and we’re not there to meet them. No more hanging around on street corners, waiting for us to arrive. Our children can be kept safer when living in a smart home.
Smart door locks are another great way of keeping everyone safe and organized. These locks can be programmed to only give access to specific people at specific times of the day. They also provide a log showing who entered the house and who left the house that day. While there may be some reluctance among homeowners who still fear the power of technology, for many these smart security systems and gadgets are going to revolutionize the way we live.

On a final note, IoT is positive. When considering convenience, safety, security, and energy reduction, even those unfamiliar with new technologies, or a little resistant to the digital age, can see the benefits of living in a smart home and it’s only a matter of time before we see mass integration on a global scale.
