What’s Next in Smart Home Technology?
Smart technology is slowly making its way to American homes. Gone are the days when you have to turn off every single home appliance when you’re going away for a much needed vacation. Now, you can turn them on and off via the internet. And it doesn’t end there.
Smart refrigerators can automatically make an inventory of what’s inside, how long they’ve been there, and what’s running low. Some can even download and display recipes.
Next generation microwave ovens also have built-in smart technology. They can interconnect with smart refrigerators and make a suggestion of recipes based on what food items the refrigerator contains.
Televisions will also change the way people do internet surfing, as interactive TV becomes available. Instead of having a separate PC and TV, all PC functions will be transferred to these internet-capable televisions.
Soon, shower heads will also have smart technology built in them. Individual user profiles can be stored in them, which will make them adjust the water pressure and temperature based on each user’s preference.
Toilets will also have self-cleaning capabilities with adjusting flush settings depending on how much water they contain.
Hand dryers are also equipped with smart technology. The Veltia Hand Dryer, for example, has strategically placed sensors which can detect hands quickly to activate the air jets. These air jets can churn a maximum power of 200 kph, drying hands in less than 15 seconds. The Veltia Hand Dryer’s smart technology can also turn off the dryer after 25 seconds, in case the user leaves his hand in there too long. Its Zero Smell technology helps neutralize bad odor.
Some of these technological advancements are already available, while some are soon to be developed and launched for the consumers. Nevertheless, smart home technology is here to help make people’s lives easier and more convenient.
