Interestingly, first generation smart homes have little to do with intelligence and much more about remote control and automation. A decade ago, it was enough to call the future space a smart home where you could operate blinds from your smartphone or teach your thermostat to remember what temperature you prefer. In 2021, this concept represents far more than that.
What is home automation using IoT today? Today, smart home meets consumer expectations and sometimes exceeds them and. Continuously collects data on how you are using sensors, devices, appliances, and entire space in your home. They learn about your habits and determine usage patterns using complex algorithms. These insights can help you personalize your experience at the granular level.
Take, for example, the latest smart robotic vacuum cleaning machines that cleans your home and charges it’s battery back all by itself. Based on the Internet of Things, the new generation of smart home devices use their sensor data to automatically adjust the rules for your routine. They monitor your location in real time and turn the heat on and off accordingly.
The best part is you don’t really have to do anything. Smart thermostats rely on their algorithms to personalize the home temperature according to your preferences and save you good money on reduced energy consumption.
