As smart technology improves, smart homes are becoming more in demand, making it even more important to include technology integration during construction. One of the most anticipated functions of smart technology revolves around device compatibility, i.e. making it easier to integrate certain devices together seamlessly.
Smart Home Construction prides itself on being ahead of the curve in customizing breath-taking smart homes that embrace the full potential of smart technology, and we’ve gathered together a list of predictions about how this technology will change and improve in the coming decade. When it does, trust that your Harlingen smart home builders can adapt and improve smart home construction to match your needs and the innovations of the industry.
1. Smart Furniture
For the most part, we are in unknown territory regarding smart technology’s full capabilities, but there are some assumptions we can make based on current trends. Smart furniture is becoming more common, from smart refrigerators to even smart mattresses.
Lately, however, the kitchen has become one of the rooms in the house where great improvements in smart technology are happening. Smart refrigerators can now do anything from scheduling meals for your family to informing you when certain perishable foods are expired.
Newer technology for cooking, like the Mellow sous vide machine, allows you to control your cooking from your smartphone, whether you’re at home or miles away. Smart cabinets arguably will have the largest impact on smart home construction, giving you the ability to monitor what’s in your pantry and find recipes that utilize the ingredients you have on hand.
The bedroom is another room full of potential for smart technology. Smart mattresses can regulate the mattress’ temperature and monitor your sleep patterns As you could expect, it can even adjust to help you stop snoring. Smart wardrobes and dressing tables, on the other hand, can even help you organize your clothes and help you choose outfits.
Lastly, the living room may be the room in which smart technology will have the largest effect, and building a smart home that can utilize full potential here becomes critical. Of course, smart televisions will continue to improve, but with the possibility of smart projectors becoming more popular, the furniture we purchase and align in our living rooms could also change, along with the construction of the room itself to maximize the home theater experience.
2. Smart Security
Smart security is one of the fastest-growing sectors of smart technology. As smart security improves, it will become even more common in our homes and even more important in the construction process. However, one of homeowners’ largest concerns with smart security is their privacy. It’s likely that smart security technology will become more secured itself moving forward.
As smart technology improves, it often becomes more intuitive and straightforward, and smart security is no different. As technology continues to adapt, it will be able to learn and predict our behavior in order to alert us if something isn’t right. One area in which this will have a large impact in is elder care, as smart security may extend further into the realm of holistic health and the health of individuals dwelling within the smart home.
As smart security evolves, it will likely become more integrated into the systems of smart technology we already have in place, allowing our devices to “talk to each other” in order to improve performance. Video security will also become more ubiquitous and improve on only showing you things you need to see, saving you time and making you more safe. That is really the key: the focus on you the user. The smart security industry wants to make your home the center of your life, allowing you to monitor its safety, and yours, at all times.
3. A Greener Future
The desire to become more environmentally conscious is one of the largest driving forces behind smart technology. With smart lighting and thermostats already commonplace in many homes, experts predict technology that can help you limit your energy usage will continue to improve.
Energy efficient technology and technology that’s activated using motion sensors can help you reduce your carbon footprint–and your energy bill. Furnaces, hot water heaters, and HVACs are all developing new smart capabilities based on sensors.
In fact, improving sensors is a large part of smart technology development today. Thermostats and fire detectors are just two of the technologies already on the market, but there’s lots of room to grow. For instance, sensors that can monitor and maintain the structural integrity of your home or check for potential problem areas–like scanning for termites, for example–will become more and more pivotal in smart home construction.
