Smart Home: From Basic Functionality To Voice-Enabled Tech

It’s inevitable that IoT products will all soon speak the same language. There are many competitors alongside Google and Amazon trying to manage connected home devices.

Smart home technology is largely restricted to homeowners, since renters can’t self-install most smart devices. The future lies in retrofitting multifamily apartments for the largest environmental and economical impact.

Currently, the Smart Home is learning to be modular — as much as possible. This move will allow the Smart Home of the future to be based on standards, allowing many manufacturers to join the movement.

In the search for context based intelligent Smart Home automation, consumers find themselves compromising on voice control. New tech for room level positioning for people is the missing piece.

The smart home industry is at an inflection point – companies that are still around are looking towards a future with aware consumers demanding products that work together, are secure and deliver real benefits.

The smart home has diversified, we’re seeing specialized innovations for rooms like the kitchen that use tech and connectivity to tackle specific tasks like recipe curation, food delivery and meal preparation.

Adoption is high on basic functionality like light switches, thermostats, and security cameras, but voice-enabled home tech is evolving to managing your entire domestic life – think grocery lists, monthly bills, budgeting, family schedules and so on.
