The Perfect Home: Tech Central
If you’re in any way interested in technology, then you’ll have been keeping up with the latest advances in what is being known as “smart home” technology. In a nutshell, this is technology that aims to automate pretty much everything, allowing you to control different aspects of your home from your smartphone. Sounds convenient, right?
In this day and age, with everyone being so busy all of the time and barely knowing whether they’re coming or going, being able to pop your heating on from your smartphone an hour before you’re due to get in is a sure luxury, and that’s why this week’s home focuses on the smart home technology, and how you can make it work for you.
So, what’s so special about this home?
Well, on the face of it, not so much! As I said before, this home could be pretty much any home. It could be the home you live in now, or the one your parents live in. Nothing special! Of course, since it’s a dream home I’m going to include my usual prerequisites of plenty of space, lots of light and a couple of extra rooms to store my crafty bits and a library, but other than that, well it’s any old house, really!
Except the tech. In our dream house, we control the house’s sound at the tap of a screen; we can turn on the heating while on the commute home from work; our security system is fully automated and run from our smartphones, and there’s no need to drag yourself out of the comfort of your bed to turn off the light – oh no, you can do that from your phone, too!
It may seem a little surplus, but technology really is the way forward. For me, I spend most of each day using some sort of technology, and incorporating that into my home would really be an extension of the convenience of modern living, for me. I can understand people not being on board with this level of technology in the home, but surely it’s something to consider if you’re constantly after the latest gadget?
