The Future of Smart Homes
Updated: Apr 15
Researchers predict that the smart home market will be worth $28,864 million in value by the end of 2021. With a CAGR of 12.8%, it is projected to cross $46,767 million by 2025. Home automation is becoming popular because of its many advantages, such as energy efficiency, enhanced security, greater connectivity, and added convenience.
An ever-increasing number of residential and commercial buildings are being fitted with IoT and PoE technologies. Here we share five ways advanced technology integration will improve our lives in the future.
Artificial intelligence (AI)
AI will track your location inside the home through wearable devices and sensors. It will determine your identity and the exact location within the premises. With this information, in the coming years, smart home gadgets will accommodate and even anticipate your needs.
Advanced technology will fine-tune your room’s ambiance by automatically adjusting brightness, color, and contrast. These smart lights will also be able to create customized effects to match your changing moods.
Home security has transformed since the introduction of smart homes. Smart locks can help you control access to your home from anywhere in the world with the help of the internet. In the coming years, smart locks will have a keyless system featuring a two-way security camera that will allow you to interact with visitors without being physically present at home.
With the help of surveillance cameras, new monitoring systems will be able to observe your home 24 x 7 and immediately report any suspicious activity. They can also help the elderly living in your house by alerting the police and medical services in case of an emergency.
Most smart gadgets use electricity to function. A PoE (Power over Ethernet) device provides a steady flow of electric current to your gadgets through the Ethernet connection in your house, removing the need for batteries or wall outlets. The newly-developed 100W PoE standard system can power devices like smart TVs and computers.
Challenges to home automation
Though home automation can completely transform the way you live, it has certain downsides too.
Cost: Home automation and IoT support devices are expensive, with added installation and maintenance costs, which can be beyond the financial means of most households.
Privacy: There is growing concern around the potential misuse of your personal data for commercial gains. An automation device connected via the internet can pose a significant threat to your privacy.
