A few decades ago, the idea of an automated home was little more than science fiction. The idea of controlling the temperature or lighting in your home with a simple voice command seemed as space-age as booking a weekend trip to the moon. In fact, versions of smart homes and smart tech were dreamed up by the likes of science fiction author Ray Bradbury and Gene Roddenberry in the iconic Star Trek series. Like many ideas found in science fiction, it was only a matter of time before we found a way to make smart homes a reality.

These days, smart homes are anything but fiction, quickly becoming the reality for millions worldwide. In this post from our SevenAV experts, we’ll share why smart home upgrades are becoming the right choice for millions of homeowners.

What is Smart Technology?

Smart home technology is a type of technology that combines wireless tech and home automation to make life easier for the home’s occupants. As smart home usage continues to expand, so do the many applications.

These are just a few of the ways homeowners are using smart tech:

1.    Integrating Personal Assistants

One of the most significant innovations in recent years is the integration of artificial intelligence-based personal assistants like Siri and Alexa. These types of devices accept voice commands and can be used with modern appliances to simplify life around the home and automate many functions.

2.    Reducing Energy Use

With smart technology integration, you have the ability to control your HVAC system from anywhere in the world. That means when you’re boarding the flight home from vacation, you can take a quick moment to change the temperature in your home to a perfect comfort level. You can also adjust the lights so you never have to come home to a dark living room.

3.    Making Life Easier

The best thing about smart home applications is how they can improve or simplify life for homeowners. Imagine brewing a cup of coffee the moment your alarm goes off or arming your home’s security system from across town. Get the ability to adjust lights and volume with your new home theater installation. Check the weather or news with a voice command while you’re cooking breakfast.
