Think security. Think smart. Think Spectra Home.
In the early 1990’s electrical household appliances started to revolutionise how chores were done, but the advances emerging today really began with consumers being connected to the internet and the ability to control appliances with smart applications via smartphone.
We are not yet at the stage where robotics will take over our domestic chores. However, home automated systems can help you monitor and control functions such as lighting, climate, entertainment systems and, most important of all, security and access control.
According to Statista (2021: online) the future of smart homes is here and very exciting. Currently around 31 billion devices are connected to the internet, and that number will supposedly grow to 75,4 billion by 2025.
So, here are the biggest smart home trends and tips for 2021:
Start with smart automation in your kitchen. Imagine sitting at work or in the traffic and via a mobile app you defrost items placed in a special part of your fridge or smart oven. With smart appliances you can now check-up remotely what’s in your fridge and do the shopping before you arrive home or you could check if the chicken is defrosted for dinner tonight. Ask the kids to pop something in the oven and you may set the oven to your comfort levels . . . dinner ready the moment you walk through the front door.
The biggest uptake in this industry is smart surveillance and security systems. Control, from your phone, your family’s safety with CCTV cameras and sensors around your premises. Smart sensors and smart cameras can pre-alert you of movement and with a click of a button send a SOS to armed response. Smart homes also contribute to the environment with smart sprinkle systems for effective gardening and solar systems putting the power of clean energy at your fingertips.
Consumers can also connect their appliances to various centralized automated smart operating systems such as Amazon Echo 4th generation, Google Nest Hub, Amazon Echo Show 8 and TP Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Power Outlet.
Smart homes and smart functionalities are possible because of reliable connectivity to your home. This is where MTC comes in: Our Spectra Home products (fibre and fixed mobile solutions) will allow you to be part of the fourth industrial revolution* by smarting up your home.
