Smart homes in Albuquerque have been becoming more popular, as well as progressing in usefulness and application. Now, with the increase of artificial intelligence, smart homes really are starting to become smart. As the technology behind smart homes gets faster and more powerful, we should expect to see new and innovative ways in which it will help us around the home. What are some of the trends in smart home technology we can expect to see soon?
Machines that learn
The word “smart”, at least up until now, has been misused when talking about home technology. Programming lights to come and seeing visitors at your door from a doorbell camera does not make your home “smart.” A better term for this technology is “connected home.”
But times are changing, and so is technology. Machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and other technologies that actually are capable of thinking, making decisions, and learning, will change smart home technology. Your home may truly become “smart.”
There are currently devices for your home that already use some of this smart technology. For example, smart thermostat systems from Nest and Honeywell use machine learning to adapt their behavior to the inhabitants of a house, based on observing and then replicating their habits. Facial recognition is also on the rise. Soon we can expect refrigerators to “see” what’s inside so that it can predict what you need to order, and even place the order for you!
Robots in the Home
We all know about robotic vacuums. Artificial intelligence will make robots more helpful than just cleaning up the floor (and giving cats a ride around the house).
Robots are being explored for all sorts of uses, from cooking to cleaning, to even providing companionship, such as LG’s CLOi and Trifo’s Lucy. We can look forward to a future where domestic robots can help us with more routine tasks, freeing up our time. They can also be of great help to the elderly and disabled, even calling for help if someone has fallen or otherwise injured.
True, we’re not going to see that level of technology for a few years at least. But for right now, mobile robots will continue to become more common in homes in Albuquerque, as well as more affordable and useful.
In-home healthcare gets smarter
Smart technology will also be able to help with in-home healthcare. Wearable devices will be able to monitor activity levels, quality of sleep, and nutrition. Other devices will help us better connect with doctors and alert emergency services when an elderly person falls. We could even see AI being used for diagnosing illness.
Faster networks – smarter homes
With mobile and home networks continuing to get faster, this will only help smart home technology function more efficiently, with better access to data and processing resources in the cloud.
Devices such as smart thermostats and automated security systems will have access to more varied and up-to-date information with which to make the predictions their usefulness is built around. This will make them increasingly reliable and efficient during 2020.
If you’re thinking about making your Albuquerque home “smarter”, this is an exciting time to do so.
