Modern “smart” technologies may soon become a fixture inside the home with things such as smart lightbulbs that detect when you are in the room or smart appliances. One piece of impressive home technology is smart thermostats that connect to the internet. These thermostats can be remotely controlled from your phone and programmed in various ways to save you money. How would you like a home security system you could check from your tablet while on vacation. Smart locks are deadbolts you can open and close with your phone.
- It may seem silly to swap out your existing thermostat for one that’s connected to the internet. That said, it can save you a lot of money in the long run.
- Home security systems have a lot to gain by becoming smarter and more aware. Systems like Canary or iSmartAlarm allow you to monitor your house all the time.
- One of the most interesting improvements in smart home tech is the smart lock, a connected deadbolt that can be controlled remotely.
“Over the next few years, our homes will transform into spaces that are more aware and more capable than ever before. How about central air systems and thermostats that know when you’re coming home and adjust the indoor temperature accordingly?”
