Smartphones and Smart Homes – A Match Made in Technology Heaven

Research has shown that we are demanding individuals, especially when it comes to having the latest technology. We want everything to be convenient, including our homes. Having a smartphone nowadays means that we are capable of doing great things with the touch of a finger. The day has come that we are able to control electronics from our home while we are at work, out on the town or on the road.

We have the ability to control a kitchen appliance, the heating or cooling and even see who is at our door, all while using a cell phone, tablet or PC. This feature is rapidly growing among business owners and homeowners. Within the last twenty years or so, technology has done the unthinkable and we are now living in a world that is far more advanced than other cultures.

Home Security in Your Hands

Imagine having a household appliance that could somehow reach out to its manufacturer or supplier when there’s an internal problem, or turn down the thermostat using your smartphone. Would you like to know who’s ringing the doorbell before you approach the door? This is an ideal solution for many situations. What would it mean to you to have this smart feature?

Imagine running late and the kids are home. Sure, they are old enough to take care of themselves for an hour, but what if you could view what goes on at your home without having to physically be there? It would likely bring some comfort to you. Another advancement to the smart home is a the doorbell camera. Whenever someone rings the doorbell, they activate sensors that send a signal to you whenever someone approaches the door.

Advantages of Having a Smart Home

  • Being able to talk with visitors before they enter your home or business can have its advantages. Having the ability to see who’s at your place of residence or business while you are away is invaluable. This concept provides a comforting feeling and no price can be attached to a parent or business owner’s piece of mind.
  • On another note, a smart home can be a lifesaver to the sick and shut-in. A family member in distress can call for emergency help with the push of a button. It goes deeper than that. What this means is that seniors can stay at home longer instead of residing in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. The quality of life not only increases for the working class, but for the aging.
  • With the implementation of the home security system that can be controlled with a cell phone or wireless device, homeowners can even be given discounts that can lower insurance premiums.
