Future of Smart Homes: 5 Trends to Watch

Future of the Smart Homes

The future of smart homes is a massive topic here in 2024. Technology has been evolving rampantly, and people want more ease and automation. Automation and virtual assistance have given people more time to focus on other daily activities and make housekeeping easier.

What is the Future of the Smart Homes

Since voice assistants, augmented reality, and machine learning are becoming more popular, there is much to look forward to when considering the future of smart homes. In this blog post, we’ll talk about some of the most popular smart home ideas.

Voice assistants

Voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant have definitely changed the future of smart homes. Homeowners can handle everything from their lights, thermostats, and security systems by speaking out loud. As voice recognition technology keeps improving, we can expect to talk to our smart homes more naturally and give them orders that take more than one step.

Some products involve voice assistants within the singular product, not involving a larger system like Alexa or Google Assistant. Many companies have adopted voice assistants into daily use products. A great example is light bulbs, which can assist people with disabilities. You can connect these voice assistant light bulbs to a hub like our Ezlo Plus and automate and customize them more.

Augmented reality (AR)

Augmented reality (AR) is a device that adds digital information to the real world. It is usually seen through a smartphone or tablet. AR can give you real-time information about your home’s gadgets and systems, such as how much energy they use, how hot or cold it is, and if there are any security alerts. AR can also be used to plan and remodel homes. It lets people see how different layouts and materials will look before they change anything physically.

We just saw a new practical AR product launched at the 2023 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. They introduced the Apple Vision Pro. Which is a headset that allows you to integrate AR into your life. With the headset, you can record memories and play them back as if you’re reliving them. Products like the Apple Vision Pro are just the beginning of the integration of AR in the home.

Machines can learn

Role of Artificial Intelligence in Future Smart Homes Machine learning is an artificial intelligence (AI) that teaches algorithms to learn from data and improve over time. In the future of smart homes, machine learning can use a person’s habits and preferences to create a personalized experience. For example, a smart lighting system could learn when you usually turn on and off certain lights and adjust accordingly. A smart thermostat could learn your preferred temperature settings and instantly change when you’re home or away. Although many of these features are available now through automation, many people believe that machines will eventually be able to learn our habits without having to tell them so that they can customize our surroundings to our habits.

The best security

Smart security systems have existed for a long time but keep improving as new technologies emerge. Face recognition technology is a growing trend that can identify people and let them into your home without keys or codes.

Although this technology is available in many countries, it is typically used by government agencies. Soon, this technology could be rolled out to the masses, allowing your door to unlock when it sees you or triggering any system you program it to.

Smart locks, which can be controlled from afar with a smartphone app, and video doorbells, which let you see and talk to guests even when you’re not home, are great security features we will see more of in the future of smart homes. These may even begin to allow fingerprint recognition or voice recognition.

Using energy well

As discussed in a previous blog post, one of the best things about smart home technology is that it can help you use less energy. In the future, there will be more focus on saving energy, and devices and systems will work together smoothly to use less energy overall. This could include anything from smart HVAC systems that change the temperature based on how many people are in the room to smart tools that use the least energy at different times of the day.

Conclusion – Smart Home Future Trends

The future of smart homes is full of exciting options, such as voice assistants, augmented reality, machine learning, and smart security. As these technologies improve, we can expect to see even more ways to make our homes better and our lives easier and more handy.
