Smart Technology in the Home

Have you heard of the Internet of things? It will be the wave of the future, especially in the home. Technologists are imagining a future where all things are connected, and one device will control elements of your home.

Soon we will be able to open our garage door from our smart phone, monitor our home’s security from our desktop computers, and set our home to welcome us with a musical overture when we arrive from a busy day. One California Water Heater company suggests that tankless water heaters will even eliminate our need to wait for hot water. These new advances will help improve our quality of life, and make our homes smarter.

Smart Stove

Using an integrated Android tablet, your stove now offers a range of options to help you cook at home or while you’re out and about. The new debut at CES 2014 shows how users can adjust the internal temperature from a smart phone, or view a cooking video while they work on the stove top. Available in both gas and electric, this stove is one of a few gadgets that will upgrade your kitchen to the future.

Smart Fridge

Have you ever been at the grocery store and realized that you don’t know whether you have that essential ingredient? Imagine being able to view your grocery list, which catalogues everything in your fridge. Early iterations of the product were mostly unsuccessful, but the newer versions incorporate more handy technology. Wi-Fi connectivity lets you use apps to determine your family’s meal plan. Newer fridges even feature a function to deliver hot, filtered water straight from the tap.

Controlling Temperature

Smart thermostats are the new rage for home improvement. These intelligent devices learn your preferences and make adjustments according to your desires. For example, a smart thermostat would know that the mornings are cold and would adjust heating before you wake up so you can feel warm and refreshed. Buy a tankless water heater to improve the rate at which your house warms water. These improvements end up saving you money in the long term, and you have the ability to over write these settings at any point.

Smart Beds

Smart beds will utilize technology to make adjustments that will improve your sleeping habits. One of the bed’s basic uses is to adjust firmness of each side, so you and your partner sleep comfortably. A built in ambient light provides the room with low-light sleep conditions, and built in hydraulics can even adjust your partner’s head height to prevent snoring.
