To make a home just a little smarter, consumers need to see how it could transform their lives. A home that incorporates advanced automation systems to provide its inhabitants with sophisticated monitoring and control over the buildings functions. Since our lives seem to revolve around internet, it sounds ever more lasting when we attempt to connect as many aspects of our life to the web as possible. The concept is simple; if we connect everything in our house to the internet, we will be able to control them remotely, making lives easier.

Have you ever left home then realized that you may have left your bedroom or bathroom lights on? Helpless! Stuck worrying until you get home. Don’t worry you can now control your living with your smart phone or a web portal. That’s what smart home technology speaks about; to turn your home into an interconnected domain. This growing trend has gone from button-press security systems to controlling and observing your home from anywhere.

An astute tomorrow that looks much smoother than ever. So in no time, you’ll wake in the morning to the sound of your alarm. The lights in your room will automatically turn on and then gradually your bathroom, the kitchen and a few minutes later your car. You walk into a kitchen that will remind you which ingredients you’ll need to pick up on your way home from work and all that you will need to include in your dinner that night. Then ultimately while you leave the house, just with a click on your app that car will self-drive your car out of the garage.

Most homes already have a certain amount of “smartness” because many appliances already contain inbuilt censors or electronic controllers. The most well related example would be your virtual washing machines, they have a set of predefined programmers that make them follow a distinct series of washes, rinses and spins depending on how you set their dials and knobs when you first switch on. A very efficiently developed illustration of a smart technology is that of Whirlpool. They play a big role in the kitchen, showcasing surfaces act like your touchscreen and integrate with video conferencing, text messages and alerts from social media network. You’ll be able to put a pot anywhere on the surface and it will detect the item, and start heating it up.

This portrays that Smart Home seems to not just be a technology but also a part of your living in the coming future.
