Smart Home Technology for your Home
Post by : favouritehomes
SMART home technology stands for Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology and became commercially available from between 1998 and the early 2000s’. A smart home uses technology to make life more convenient, comfortable, secure and energy-efficient for the homeowner. It uses devices that are hooked up to the internet to automate and monitor systems present in and around the house.
The term smart home is commonly used to refer to a residence that has remotely controlled electrical appliances, air conditioning, lighting, audio and video systems, television, computers, door locks or security systems, etc, that can communicate with one another and can be remotely controlled as per a fixed time schedule.
With the evolving modern lifestyles, people are spending more and more time away from home, leaving it open to nefarious activities. But with smart home technology, you can use CCTV cameras or discretely hidden cameras that are connected to your smartphone or personal computer using smart home apps to monitor what’s happening in and around your home – whether you are at home or away from home. It also provides a great way of keeping an eye on your kids when they are left unattended.
Another important application of smart home technology is in remotely controlling electrical appliances; this increases energy efficiency as well as securing your home. You can easily check if your appliances have been switched off properly once you have left home. You can also use the technology to open and close your garage doors or switch on the lights and air conditioning in your home before you get home in the evenings. Smart home technology is also helpful for the elderly and the disabled as they can easily control appliances and devices with the click of a button instead of having to move around.
Installation of smart home products improves the quality of life and provides benefits to the homeowners similar to the way computer technology has been doing for the past 30 years or so – by helping in saving time, energy and money. It also provides a greener way of living as there is less wastage of energy resources this way.
With more people becoming aware of these benefits, eminent home builders in Trivandrum have taken up the initiative to provide smart home technology features in their luxury villa projects. For the lucky few who understand the significance of this technology, there are some villas available in prime locations within Trivandrum city.
