One of the more interesting movements in tech in recent years is the Internet of Things. This has sought to make many of our home appliances ‘smart’ by allowing them to be controlled automatically, or via a user’s smartphone.
In order to cater to this revolution in home living, there’s been something of a rush amongst manufacturers to deliver a range of goods from super king size TV beds to pocket-sized security solutions that all incorporate amazing smart tech.
One of the most immediately visible ways in which home appliances have become smart is the range of smart TVs that have sought to replace computers as our main entertainment hub. And whilst most smart TVs come equipped with a range of apps like YouTube and Netflix, the latest Vizio P-series 4K televisions offer a more streamlined solution thanks to the way in which the display can easily be controlled by a single Google Cast device.
By doing away with the often frustrating smart TV interfaces, such innovations should enable a more stress-free viewing experience. This is particularly so as Bedstar offer a 21st century way to tune in with one of these super king size TV beds that is just one further example of how our entertainment options have diversified with the arrival of smart home technology.
But it’s not just entertainment that has been overhauled, as there are plenty of smart innovations in the 21st century kitchen too. Many smart refrigerators now feature in-built cameras so that you can quickly check the contents and see if you need to buy more milk when you’re out and about, and the Pantelligent smart frying pan can even advise you when to flip that omelette.
Tech companies are also seeking to find new ways to integrate technologies so as to deliver a complete smart home solution. This looks to empower the homeowner with the ability to control heating, lighting, ventilation and even lock and unlocked doors remotely through smartphone technology.
However, there have been many commentators who have stated that by using amazing smart tech in our homes we may be providing cyber-criminals with an easier way to infiltrate our homes. And despite the constant attempts to step up our home security, the fact remains that if wireless technology is used, it can be hackable.
But with the public showing greater demand for the luxury of super king size TV beds and the convenience of all-in-one home security systems, it looks like our homes will continue to get much smarter in the years to come.
