Quick guide to making the switch to smart homes with these apps.
Our everyday household life is becoming easier every year. Even if we compare it with how we lived 20 years ago, the difference is obvious. Due to technical progress, gadgets and robots take now most of the household chores and do everything for us - they wash and dry clothes, clean the floor, cook food, guard the house and help us in many other things.
Our houses are no longer just accommodations. They gradually increase their intelligence and turn into smart homes that are able to solve everyday tasks on their own without human participation.
Moreover, the main characteristic of a smart home is a harmonious work of all systems and overall cooperation according to some algorithm. We schematically divided all smart systems into four groups: security, resource saving, comfort, entertainment, and energy efficient.
Let's take a look at four 2019 gadgets that could become the perfect addition to your smart home.
In 2019 a well-known growing company Xiaomi presented its new smart gadget for home security Xiaomi Mijia Loock Smart Cat Eye. In fact, the new product is a smart camera that is installed in the place of an ordinary peephole. The camera connects with a tablet or a smartphone and projects the video there.
The Cat Eye has a 166-degree angle of view, high resolution and a powerful battery for two months of uninterrupted work, motion sensors and infrared diodes. The camera is activated as soon as someone approaches your entrance door and sends a clear image on your tablet despite the lighting or time of day.
The gadget can also identify the person due to its smart face recognition system. You`ll be informed about the person`s age, gender, special signs or face features, and other characteristics. The tablet connection helps run the camera remotely, store video and adjust settings.
Nowadays a whole rank of companies – Samsung, Bosch, Candy, LG, and so on – designs so-called smart washers. This year we'll see a new generation of machines that can become a worthy purchase for your smart home.
The quality of washing has been so highly developed that machines could cope with the most complicated pollution without any soaking and special powders, and steam system removes both wrinkles and allergens and bacteria.
So, today the market of smart washing machines makes the main focus on energy and water saving as well as on remote control. New models are similar in these general characteristics: the gadgets determine the degree of the drum loading and then get a strictly defined amount of water that`s necessary for washing in each case.
The machines are equipped with a textile guard system that helps not only protect clothes from damage but also automatically measure the right amount of detergent and avoid overspending.
Wi-Fi connections and especially elaborate apps allow users to control and monitor washing from smartphones, so you can run and stop the washer and be informed about the amount of detergent, water or energy consumption.
Automatic window openers are especially popular at non-residential premises but can be really useful in your house. As a rule, the opening system has a drive unit that is set on the window and remote controller (the latest models have Wi-Fi connection and apps).
The system helps open hard-to-reach windows such as roof windows or highly located frames, controls regular air conditioning of the accommodation and also extends the windows service life. If you have children, the automatic openers will never let them open windows and burglars can't get in.
Aside from good conditioning, a comfortable atmosphere in the house also depends on the right lighting. The curtains and blinds system works just in the same way as the window openers do – a driving system installed on the blind gets a signal from the app and opens or closes the blind.
Users can set daily schedules (for example the curtains will be opened every morning right before your wakening) or regulate the light level according to the preference. In combination with the smart home lighting system, the blinds can save a lot of energy spent on heating and electric lighting.
The latest 4K TV screens present a fantastic quality of picture and color rendition. Engineers do their best to improve the product and make it more compact. Modern TV screens are becoming thinner and thinner. But with the development of image quality and size, we tend to forget about the sound.
A good speaker system may become an excellent solution to this problem and contribute to your smart home. As a rule, a soundbar looks like a long slim board that is installed either in front of the screen or on the wall under it.
Despite its location, the speaker system works perfectly and makes it seem as though sound comes from all directions. The majority of soundbars connect with and play sound from any gadget due to the in-built Bluetooth. The best 2019 models are equipped with microphones detecting human voice and provide easy voice control from every spot of the room.
Plus, Wi-Fi and some apps will connect you with a voice assistant, so you`ll be able to check the news and weather forecast, set a timer, manage smart devices, and take full control of your media system.
Every year the gadgets become smarter and learn to do new things. Annual exhibitions amaze people with variety and "talents" of devices. On the internet, there are a lot of articles and reviews about smart devices. Things that were unthinkable some 30 years ago today are becoming a routine part of everyday life.
