Convenience is one of the traits of luxury. Every modern smart home will have convenience and luxury merging into it’s infrastructure and technology. The recent changes in smart home tech have been spurred on by the recent changes to our lifestyles. This has meant a refocus on smart tech that helps us to stay fit and healthy, both physically and mentally. But, privacy is high on the agenda as remote working and home lifestyle changes have meant hacking has been on the rise. Health-conscious technology due to the pandemic has also been given a boost in some surprising and very futuristic ways.
As you may know, health and safety are high on the agenda of many homeowners. This is why brands have been making touchless doorbells. Also known as video doorbells, a guest or stranger only needs to stand in front of the front door for a set period of time before the door rings by itself. This is due to motion sensors in the doorbell and the video lens being able to capture whoever is outside if they stand in the shot for a few seconds. However, you can also have a pressure-sensitive pad that operates wirelessly, placed underneath your welcome mat. When a guest stands on it, the doorbell senses the pressure of their weight and rings automatically. This is perfect for people who are particularly aware of viruses potentially being spread into their home.
Great lighting systems
It’s quite interesting how the lighting system in a modern home is the least touched-upon area of contemporary smart tech. Sound systems, entertainment systems and more have been developed by smart tech brands. However, you’ll need to hire particularly electricians that can design and wire a lighting system that is convenient to your home. If you’d like to have a unique lighting system that can operate from your smartphone, CLF Services are leading electricians which have been designing and building such systems for homeowners. The lights they fit can be switched from mood lighting, individual lighting, corner lighting, bright or dim lighting, done all from your phone.
Staying fit and healthy is really important now. Everyone is more aware of how valuable their health is and smart tech brands such as Samsung have pounced on this. They have announced their Smart Trainer which will track a person’s workouts through their smart Samsung TV’s webcam. So if you watch workouts and follow along, the TV itself will log how many reps, sets, hours and workouts you did throughout the weekend. This can also be useful for tracking calories being burned and helpful when trying to stick to new workouts.
Smart tech brands have realized their systems may be vulnerable to hackers who will record people in their own homes and then demand ransom, or they’ll spread the video around the internet. So physical shields have become standard among home safety security camera systems, webcams and also smart speakers that hackers use to listen in.
Luxury and convenience are paired together in this smart home race. There’s no shortage of options for you to choose from, so let’s head toward a safe, comfortable and brilliant new age in homeownership.
