08 Mar How smart is your home?
Get ready for your smart home. Interest in home automation, security and monitoring, and lifestyle IoT technologies is growing rapidly. According to BI Intelligence research, “the number of smart home devices shipped will grow from 83 million in 2015 to 193 million in 2020. This includes all smart appliances (washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc.), smart home safety and security systems (sensors, monitors, cameras, and alarm systems), and smart home energy equipment, like smart thermostats and smart lighting.
How do you manage and control your smart home and all of these devices? The smart approach to interacting with and controlling smart technology is to turn the human hand and fingers into a dynamic touchscreen display.
Wearing a standalone smartphone eliminates the need to carry a phone or access a laptop because the person becomes the console and controller. When a human hand becomes the display, touch screen, gesture interface and command center for smart technology, life is simplified. Advanced biometrics enable people to effortlessly lock and unlock doors, or remotely access their home, vehicles and all of their networked appliances. People can live stream media content and video games with voice, gesture, touch screen and projection interfaces.
In their Connected Home Forecast, research firm NPD Connected Intelligence claimed that by the end of 2019, 238 million installed devices are expected to be connected to the Internet and able to deliver apps to TVs, representing 59 percent growth from 2015 to 2019.
