Focus On Energy Efficiency

Climate change is the biggest global emergency of our lifetime, and everyone should be doing their part to cut down on energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint. Smart lighting, motorized shades, and automated climate control systems all work together to lower how much electricity you’re using to illuminate and cool down your home. Having a multi-faceted home automation system makes energy management simple. Occupancy sensors are increasingly popular, shutting off or dimming lights in vacant rooms so that you’re not wasting power.

Wellness Technology

Smart technology manufacturers have noticed how much consumers value devices that help improve their personal wellness, so there has been a considerable push for products that make users feel more invigorated. We’ve written quite a bit about circadian rhythm lighting in past blogs, and it’s a feature being pushed by manufacturers because it can help residents be more productive at the start of their day and relaxed at the end of it.

But that’s not the only wellness devices available right now. Smart sleep lights feature motion-sensing sleep tracking technology that gives you data on different aspects of your time sleeping like turning, breaks, and duration, and wake-up lights lull users to sleep and gently wake them up. Smart air purifiers assess air quality in real time with sensors that search for volatile organic compounds, which activates purification technology that eliminates airborne particles.

Advanced AI In Security

Security devices are rapidly evolving, and we’re starting to see technology that has been used in commercial settings enter the residential market to give homes even more protection. Newer surveillance cameras feature artificial intelligence that uses multipurpose sensors make adjustments that optimize the devices for your family’s unique habits. By monitoring ambient lighting, motion, air quality, sound, other environmental factors, these sensors give the AI data that allows them to pinpoint anomalies so you’re getting fewer false alerts. Surveillance cameras are also gaining new features like facial recognition and improved motion sensing, so your house doesn’t go into lockdown when one of your kids comes home late or if a critter scampers across your yard.
