This post comes in response to the hundreds of questions coming from our offline/online community, wondering about the new hype of Home Automation, and the "Era of Smart Living".
Throughout this post, we will shed more light on the 3 main basic things you need to know about how \to live smart - so let us dive right into it,
1. What does Home Automation mean and how does it work?!
Home Automation or Smart Home (also known as domotics) is building automation for the home. It involves the control and automation of lighting, heating, cleaning (such as smart Robot Cleaner), ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), and security, as well as home appliances such as washer / dryer, ovens, cookers or refrigerators/freezers.
Wi-Fi is often used for remote monitoring and control. Home devices, when remotely monitored and controlled via the Internet, are an important constituent of the Internet of Things. (Source: Wikipedia / https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_automation)
2. How easy is it to adapt and transition?!
Transitioning into a smart home owner is actually surprisingly easy, and let me tell you, it feels insanely good - it makes all the sense in the world. How much of a tech savvy person you need to be to live smart?, well as long as you can push buttons, give voice commands and/or use a simple smart mobile app, then you can hire cheap help to setup the simple connection/pairing or even better, you can test the capabilities of your 12 year old kid, while you sip coffee.
So If you have a couple of hundred dollars to spare every month (let's say 300-400 dollars, although somethings you can do for as little as $49.99), then you can be fully automated in 6 months.
3. What are the true benefits of having a Smart Home?
The list is way too long that we really don't see how you don't already know or can imagine the benefits of living smart.
But to humor your curiosity, think about smart living in the following scenarios:
Here is a Case Study
"Adam, is a hardworking man living with his wife Katie, and their 3 year old daughter Eva. Katie sells crafts online, and can easily monitor her baby napping with a smart wireless camera that has amazing night vision, voice/motion detection and 2 way-speech, whether she is working on her computer desk, cooking in the kitchen or tanning in the backyard, all for less than $100 - The family can enjoy its quite night sleep, as their $250 smart robot vacuum cleaner, they call Bob, auto-cleans their floors at a preset scheduled time in the middle of the night, every night.
Now, while Katie is out on her girls night out over the weekend, Adam is gladly babysitting Eva. As Eva falls asleep in father's lap watching her favorite cartoon, he can close his curtains, turn on AC and dim down room light, all without having to get up and waking up the baby, using one mobile application included in the $70 smart home automation kit."
