The presence of technology in our daily lives is indisputable. Modified work, leisure and relationship habits. The interior of the house is no exception, invaded by appliances, home automation systems, which make it more comfortable and efficient.
Smart homes that learn
The latest technological advances allow the creation of robots that learn and modify their behaviors based on their experience. In the future, they will be able to process and analyze the environment’s responses to their actions and modify them for better results. The house itself will create behavior in several areas: in relation to the environment, in relation to the individual and in relation to other neighboring dwellings. At this point, it won’t be wrong to talk about smart homes, as they will have the ability to learn.
Ubiquitous technology and smart city
Domotic homes will connect and share experiences. Thus, the smart home can anticipate and react to new situations. The ubiquitous technology, that which is hidden and integrated with the environment, will allow the creation of a common memory for the city, which, thanks to the collective information shared by the houses, will become intelligent.
Integrated control: the power of touch
It is the element of control that integrates all the functions of electronic equipment in a home. Until now, every room or environment in a home was governed by independent electronic equipment. Thanks to information technologies, simple touch screens will bring together control of all electrical appliances and electronic systems in the home.
Intelligent devices and intuitive robots
It is now possible to turn on the oven or open the blinds at home without leaving the office, over the internet or by cell phone. Appliances can decide for themselves the most efficient function to perform at all times. The application of robotics in the home environment implies developing the ability to recognize spaces and people. For this, artificial vision is essential.
Digital and sustainable
The smart home respects the environment. Sustainability and technology go together in the development of the digital and sustainable building, in which there are innovative objects such as the purifying lamp, which contributes negative ions to the environment and eliminates bacteria, tobacco smoke, bad odors or dust and pollen, helping to improve living conditions for allergy sufferers.
Leisure and home automation
The interactive consumer drives markets and companies that, aware of this, offer what they are looking for. The user seeks to interact with the environment and becomes more selective, decides what type of music to listen to or what type of programming to watch and at what time, and configures the electronic world according to his needs and tastes. The consumer is a partner in the development of technology.
The outstanding issue of home automation systems
One of the great limitations for the advancement of these technologies is the compatibility between them, or better, the compatibility between different elements of different brands. So far, manufacturers have created closed home automation systems for other manufacturers. That is, there is only compatibility between elements of the same brand, and even here it is easy to find problems when we change the range.
It is a problem that requires manufacturers to adopt a series of standards or, on the other hand, for one brand to take the lead in the sector and the rest to be forced to adopt its technology. Although the latter option is not the most desirable, it is usually the case in technology fields.
