Ways A Smart Home Can Make You Feel Like You’re Living In The Future

The Future Of Living Is Now With The Technology of Modern Smart Homes.

In the early 1960s, a simple animated sitcom changed the way people imagined the future of living. Though The Jetsons only initially aired for four months, the show’s futuristic utopia full of remarkable robotic contraptions, aliens, holograms and other fanciful inventions sparked the imagination of just how advanced smart home technology could one day be.

Now, more than 40 years later, modern developments have opened a world of possibility in the smart home industry. Though we haven’t quite reached The Jetsons status of smart home technology, we’re getting closer. Below are five modern features of smart home technology that will make you feel like you’re living a futuristic dream.

Smart Home Technology; The Futuristic Feel Of Smart Homes

Living In The Future - Impacts of Smart Home Technology on our lives
Are You Still Here or There? With the affluence of smart home technology, living in the future seem inevitable and some of its impacts are verifiable in our lifestyles.

5. Robotic vacuum cleaners

In 1999, the hit family comedy Smart House brought to life the idea of a fully automated dream house that would clean itself. And while science has yet to develop a home whose floors would simply evaporate trash and debris, robotic vacuum cleaners are a close second.

The Roomba is a robotic vacuum that cleans without requiring you to lift a finger – except for occasionally charge it up. This disc-shaped vacuum can be controlled from your smartphone, meaning you can prompt it to clean while you’re away. The new and improved Roomba 980 makes a map of your house, allowing you to dictate which areas you want to clean and which rooms you want it to stay away from.

This high-tech vacuum also knows to return to its port and recharge when its battery is running low. Once fully charge, Roomba 980 will continue its cleaning job – even going back to clean spots it may have missed.

4. Smart Refrigerators

For some, the idea of having a smart refrigerator might seem a little overzealous. But having a fridge that’s connected to the internet is becoming more and more beneficial as modern technology advances. LG’s newest refrigerators have SmartDiagnosis, programs that send alerts to your smartphone and also connect with LG’s customer service department if your fridge is experiencing a malfunction.

Many smart refrigerators also have a food tracking system which alerts you when an item needs to be restocked or if food is on the brink of expiration. Samsung’s Family Hub refrigerator is equipped with cameras that allow you to remotely check the contents of your fridge while grocery shopping.

3. Smart Faucets

Commonly found in public restrooms, smart faucets are now making waves in the smart home market. Not only do smart faucets save more than 15,000 gallons of water per year, but they make washing things like hands and dishes a “hands-free” task. With smart faucets, water conservation becomes a cost-effective and environmentally sound way to ensure you’re doing your part to save energy and reduce carbon emissions. Furthermore, intelligent, sleek design makes smart faucets a stylish amenity in any home while providing a hygienic and contamination-free way to wash.

2. Smart Locks

Years ago, automotive engineers developed ways for drivers to remotely start the car and unlock or lock the doors via Internet-connected technology. Now scientists have applied this same technology to smart homes, allowing you to remotely unlock and lock your doors via smartphone technology. Smart locks feature much more than a lock-and-key access–you can create personalized entry codes for individuals in your family as well as temporary access codes for guests. Program all the locks in your home to automatically lock when you go to sleep at night, and lock or unlock your doors remotely using an app on your smartphone.

Furthermore, home automation technology enhances your security features, letting you check on your home from wherever you are. Arm and disarm capabilities provide you with an intuitive interface on your touchscreen, TV, or smartphone which gives you the power to activate an “away” mode that sets the alarm, engages the security cameras, and locks all the doors. You can also program a smart home system to activate a smart lighting pattern that makes your home look occupied when you’re away.

1. Smart Sleep

Perhaps one of the most riveting developments in recent smart home technology is the groundbreaking gadget that helps you monitor and improve your sleep. One of these new sleep trackers is called Sense, a small orb that you place in your bedroom to monitor noise, light, temperature, humidity and even air particles. The Sleep Pill, an add-on clip, attaches to your pillow to track your movements. All of this intel is then sent to your smartphone, allowing you to see how much actual rest you got and what environmental factors disturbed your rest the most.

These five aforementioned smart gadgets are just the tip of the smart home technology iceberg. With things like high-tech LED lighting, wireless entertainment systems, automated appliances, and much more leading the way, engineers are getting closer than ever to achieving a true Jetsons-like home and making homeowners feel like the future of living is now.
