The applications of IoT in home appliances are limitless. From your kitchen to the bathroom, all appliances can be connected with IoT and operated remotely.
Fremont, CA: Home automation equipments have been a part of our lives for a long time. Time-saving machines like washing machines, water heaters, sewing machines, vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, and hair dryers have been used for generations. In 1898, Nikola Tesla developed the first remote control, which used radio waves to send instructions to a toy boat. This became the foundation for the Internet of things (IoT) solutions that we use today.
Smart Home Technology or Home Automation has become a significant trend in recent years. LAN or Internet connects all devices in an automated home. This encourages energy savings, convenience, security, and improved aesthetics in the living space. Combining lighting, climate, home entertainment, and safety on a single platform is essential today. All these devices can then be controlled using a smartphone or a tablet. When connected with the IoT, these devices can be accessed, monitored, and controlled remotely. Smart cities are now leveraging this technology to monitor systems more efficiently.
The applications of IoT in home appliances are limitless. From your kitchen to the bathroom, all appliances can be connected with IoT and operated remotely. Home automation aims to reduce human effort and make human life as easy as possible. Imagine a cup of coffee ready when a person arrives home after a tiring day’s work. Parents need not worry about the baby falling off from the bed while they are in another room. Home automation technologies can also be used to monitor and restrict the movement of pets at home.
Apart from daily life, home automation is also applicable to maintenance operations. They can be connected to HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems, lighting systems, and security cameras. Air quality controllers, smoke detectors, and sprinklers all can be connected to the home automation system. All it requires is a good internet connection and a smartphone.
Home automation also has various other benefits. Energy saving is necessary for the current situation of the environment. With home automation, lights will turn themselves off when left turned on unnecessarily. Taps that run on sensors will save thousands of liters each day. The most significant advantage remains the security feature. In the event of a break-in, the security systems will alert the owners allowing them to take real-time actions.
