Smart home Trends That Will Dominate 2021 and Beyond
Traditional home systems were specifically designed to work with limited connectivity. The users were also restricted to control systems within a given range. Fortunately, the emergence of smart home technology has opened door to various possibilities. It has leveraged connectivity that allows owners to get remote access to their homes.
Ever since internet became available to the public in 1991, various features were unravelled across the globe. Technology has evolved in a futuristic way making our lives far simpler. Smart home feature is one such comfort that is taking the world by storm. Smart home devices help ease decision-making, solve daily challenges, and make life healthier and safer. Now, house owner doesn’t have to worry about whether a device at home is left on, smart technology will do the work of automatically switching off devices if no one is at home. In a nutshell, smart homes are the domestic face of the Internet of Things (IoT). Some of the widely adopted applications of smart home are control, comfort and security.
According to a research report, smart home device market was valued at US$55 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow to US$174 billion by 2025. Another statistics suggest that there are over 175 million smart homes in the world right now. The recent trend in smart home application pins artificial intelligence and automation to offer domestic help in a new and innovative way. These latest trends ensure both advanced technological appliances and security. Facial recognition devices, video door alarms, remote-controlled locks and ultra-modern burglar alarms are some of the trending security choices that smart homes have put in the corridor. Henceforth, Analytics Insight brings you a list of smart home trends that will dominate the market in 2021 and beyond.
Latest trends in smart home applications
Connectivity has always been the bottom line of smart home appliances. Lack of connectivity is one of the major problems that influence user experience and hampers adoption. Already, companies that design smart home appliances are working extensively to address the challenge by implementing different approaches. One of the major smart home trends in connectivity is to offer a hub for connected devices that enables centralised control and management. Personalised connectivity hubs like Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other IoT connectivity technologies will take over the smart home market in 2021.
Robots at home
When I say robots at home, it is not a humanoid robot butler that I’m talking about. Even though movies showed it as a possible phase, it is far away from the current technological advances. However, robots entered the house premises with simple innovations like robotic vacuum cleaners and lawnmowers. But the improvement in artificial intelligence has opened door to far advanced features like robots used for cooking, cleaning and doing simple household works. Especially, smart home robots can be a companion and caretaker for the elderly and people with disabilities. These domestic robots will take over smart home applications and serve day-to-day tasks.
Wireless Remote Control
Wireless remote control devices are on its way to the smart home market. This wireless remote control provision leverages the facility to control your home through a wireless medium. This is not just efficient, secure and comfortable, but also saves energy. For example, all the kitchen devices can be remotely controlled, reducing the energy spent on it. Even other devices like smart AC can be wirelessly controlled to manage the thermostats.
The sentient home
Sentient home symbolises the future of smart homes where the house will be an entirely intuitive environment that manages external and internal necessities for residents. A sentiment home has smart devices and is totally connected to wireless control. The home will automatically adjust in real-time, a spectrum of facilities that support individuals, preferences inefficiency and weather patterns. On a whole, these smart houses are totally automatic that the house routines on their own. Automated applications controlled with artificial intelligence will cope with the day-by-day functions of the home efficiently and in a manner that accrues data so that machine learning can continue to optimise all processes.
Consumer security, privacy and confidence
The general threat that people envisage while using technology is the breach of privacy and data. However, that doesn’t stop people from expecting more. When it comes to smart home appliances, people look for advanced technological devices. However, this drives us to a spot where consumers get the right to know how their data is being used and understand how to benefit from them. In 2021 and beyond, smart home manufacturers will concentrate more on how to collect minimum data and provide maximum service to consumers.
