The concept of smart homes makes one see futuristic visions of a tech-savvy world. At the moment, smart homes and home automation is readily catching up. Today, Luxury living is currently at its epitome with the amalgamation of classic interior style integrated with smart home technology. With expertise in interior designing and home automation, I aim to transform ordinary spaces into magnificent ones by incorporating cohesive smart home technologies.
Home automation is monitoring our everyday activities that need the use of devices connected to the internet. I credit the spectacular rise and demand for home automation with the parallel increased use of smartphones and computers. The computers now are omnipresent and with 24×7 internet connections available, it is possible to control a plethora of online devices with a simple configuration. Today’s world is all about IoT.
In today’s time of Covid-19, a smart home is beneficial as it offers a myriad of possibilities of working remotely with the use of controlled home functions. One can oversee all functions of a home as long as they are interconnected through the internet. Such correspondent functions of one room to another comes in handy, especially while living in villas, bungalows or multi-floor flats. Home automation offers various safety prospects by preventing accidental damages such as from flood or fire.
Water sensors available at homes aid in keeping one’s home safe by detecting leaks from washing machines, dishwashers and eventually notifying the damage to interiors. Fire detectors, too, similarly send notifications in case of smoke indication or overheating thereby preventing damage to home decor.
The convenience offered to the users with the inclusion of home automation that centrally associates all devices and apps is unparalleled. One can time the outdoor lights to turn on with sunset and turn off at sunrise or open and close curtain blinds at an automated set time. Such technology also allows the user to turn on music at a particular time frame or play alarms in the morning to wake up.
Home automation systems can also be used to set up and maintain a healthy home environment by regulating indoor temperature, humidity and lighting. Smart tech devices are being included as components in the user’s lifestyle. They can be programmed into daily activities and work with people’s moods to create a certain atmosphere in given spaces. This lets one experience a highly adaptive and personalised interior that is based not only on their preferences but also on their everyday schedule and behaviour. With technology growing every day and offering endless possibilities, the list of things a smart home can do limitless.
Robotics and automation are slowly becoming a staple in any futuristic vision for the interior industry. Architects are incorporating this trend that ranges from smart cities to smart kitchens. There are three major areas where the use of automation and new-age tech is being adopted. It is being showcased in various home decor where robotics are being envisioned as a tool for functions in interior spaces. Smart technology has also been introduced in furniture. Owing to the increasing habitation of smaller spaces, designers are coming up with creative approaches to make the home interiors flexible. Smart automation has also been vastly introduced in lighting and heating by bringing in automation on sensing human presence and movement in a room.
Home automation not only makes home design affordable but also aids in saving money with the inculcation of energy-efficient technology. With new trends in incorporating IoT and interior design, home interiors will provide ambient aesthetics while presenting smart functions that make a home comfortable and convenient. Smart homes, at the end of the day, aim to improve the everyday lives of the people while proffering user-oriented services.
