The time for home automation, thus making our homes smart, is rushing towards us like a steam train. Either you can say I’m going to wait till every issue is solved and prices are main stream or you’re going to enjoy the benefits of your Smart Home and making your friends green with envy.
In her post Smarthome upgrades, Jenneth Orantia take us from the flying cars and robot maids in “The Jetsons” to the modern day of what is available for you today. She also mentioned some of the difficulties with Smarthome upgrades at this stage, like cost, the communication between devices from different manufactures.
She cleverly split her discussion into Smart appliances(Coffee machines, refrigerators, vacuum cleaners and smart switches), Home automation(lights, music, Apple home kit, Google and SmartThings), Smarter home security(camaras, motion detectors and smart locks) and High tech toys(wrist bands, wrist watch, smart forks and tooth brushes).
A real nice article with lots of information.
