We are moving slowly, but surely, into a world where people have some elements of a smart home more than they don’t. The kinds of things that are included under this umbrella do vary, but one of the biggest components is smart lighting, all of which aim “to make houses operate more conveniently, more comfortably and in a more environmentally friendly manner.”
The Slow Rise of the Smart Home
There are a lot of reasons that a person might opt for smarter forms of energy within their home ranging from convenience to energy bill savings to reducing one’s carbon footprint. Whatever the motivation, the installation of particular devices and appliances will become more and more common as time goes on.
Some such systems that already exist function by “[determining] which appliances, devices, or rooms in a home are consuming electricity, and can send this information to a cellphone app.” This is helpful for general knowledge, of course, and will also make it easier than ever for professionals to perform audits. With such a detailed breakdown of what kind of power is used where, experts and laypeople alike can look at their habits and determine what kinds of changes need to be made to cut back on wasteful use.
Of course, smart lighting is another up-and-coming area within this industry, too. Many are Bluetooth-enabled, connect with devices like the Amazon Echo, are more efficient, and much more, depending on the brand in questions. Still, moving forward, all the involved companies need to make a point of ensuring that “these devices and services [are] as simple as possible.” We don’t want their use to become so complicated that the everyday consumer isn’t interested in trying them, or isn’t able to.
There is a lot of work to be done still to bring affordable and functional energy solutions into a house to make it a smart home.
