We live in a world that is powered by technology; we have smartphones to order groceries online, electric cars to get to places, laptops to type out notes, smartwatches to keep track of the number of footsteps, and so on. Life has been made easier in limitless ways. Surely, there has been some advancement in home automation as well. Smart devices in our homes majorly impact our daily lives, offering convenience in every room like never before. 

From controlling the lights in your room, managing thermostats remotely, and monitoring activity inside and outside your home, smart home technology has revolutionized our living spaces!

How Smart Home Technology Works 

A smart home doesn’t just include a collection of smart devices that can think for themselves (they can’t), they rather work together to create a remotely controllable network for you.

All the smart devices – lights, thermostats, appliances, TV – can be controlled by a master controller referred to as a “smart home hub”. The hub is a central point, a hardware device that can process data and communicate accordingly, such as the likes of Amazon Alexa or Google Nest. 

All of this communication between smart devices is carried out wirelessly i.e. with the help of a Wi-Fi connection. Say, you own a service as a home network, and all the smart devices are connected to the same network. As long as all these devices are connected to the same network, it allows the hub to communicate and manage the rest of the smart devices. 

That’s why you need a reliable service that can handle your wifi needs for running smart devices. For that, we recommend connecting with Xfinity customer service and getting a plan right away.

Examples of Smart Home Devices 

Below we have listed details on the examples of smart home technology to help you get the idea about how they can help to improve your lifestyle.

Smart TV: Your TV can now connect to the Internet so that you can access some TV content through apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc., or play music through YouTube, Spotify, etc. Smart TV uses an Ethernet Cable or wireless connection to gain access to the internet. 

So your mobile phone or laptop isn’t the only way now for you to watch your favorite Netflix series!

Smart Lights: Imagine turning the lights off and on, without having to get up from your bed. Yes, you read that right. You can do so right from your smartphone. 

You can also schedule to have the lights turned on and off during certain times of the day. There are other smart lights that can sense when someone enters the room and automatically turn on, and vice versa. 

Plus, smart lights are designed to regulate themselves based on daylight availability. Some smart lights can even change colors or light temperature depending on how extensively they can be altered.  

Smart Thermostats: Believe it or not, smart thermostats also work the same as smart lights do. 

These smart devices come with integrated Wi-Fi so they can connect to the hub easily. Through your smartphone app, you can schedule, monitor, and control the temperatures in your home.

What’s even better is that these smart thermostats can learn your behavior and automatically modify the temperature accordingly to provide you with maximum comfort and efficiency. 

You also don’t need to constantly worry about changing filters in your thermostats, because the smart thermostat will just remind you when it’s time to change the filters. 

Smart Kitchen Appliances: This includes all sorts of appliances that are used in the kitchen. 

For instance, a smart coffee maker can brew a fresh cup of coffee for you automatically every morning at its scheduled time. A smart cooker can detect when the food is ready on time and send you an alert when it’s time to add or change ingredients. 

Moreover, you can also receive alerts when the clothes in the washing machine and dryer are done. You don’t necessarily have to be at home to monitor all of this, you can also do so remotely. 

You can also receive timely alerts from smart toasters, smart air fryers, smart blenders, smart refrigerators, etc. 

Smart Monitoring: Smart monitoring means that you can install cameras around your home and monitor activity right from your smartphone. You can also monitor activity on your TV screen or Laptop, provided that you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi or Smart Hub application. 

There are also smart doorbells that have cameras on the doorbells through which you can see who is at your door. You don’t have to get up from the couch to check, you can simply swipe on your smartphone!

Wrapping Up

As you can already see from the above examples, smart home technology offers convenience through your household appliances.

Smart home technology provides you the assurance that you can monitor your home remotely to counter any danger, such as the front door that is left unlocked or the stove or coffee maker that is left on. 

Save yourself the trouble of managing your devices and appliances manually and introduce automation into your home lifestyle.
