Smart Home. Monday , September 03rd , 2018 - 07:06:04 AM
There are a few big reasons that people aren't transforming their house into full smart homes today:. The first is cost. Right now the technology necessary to get all of your appliances communicating with one another for energy conservation is cost-prohibitive for most people. "Retrofitting a house with the latest smart meters, smart monitors and energy-efficient "green" technologies can cost $10,000 or more." It won't always be this way. As the technology becomes more popular and easier to produce it will become more affordable for everyone. The second reason is because new homes are a small part of the market. Retrofitting an old place to make a modern home is more expensive than creating a smart house from scratch so the majority of the modern homes today are brand new construction homes. However these make up only a small percentage of the house sales market. And the last reason is “confusing” technology. In order for the average homeowner to adopt smart technology it needs to be super simple, user-friendly and intuitive to use. Right now some of the smart home technology is more advanced and people are intimidated by it. As we get more and more used to using it this problem will go away and smart homes will become the norm.
Smart home has been an interesting topic of writing for several years, but was implemented practically in the early 20th Century with the introduction of electricity into the home, and the rapid advancement of information technology. In the late 1800s, remote control devices began to emerge. For example, in 1898 Nikola Tesla gave an idea of making the vessels and vehiclescontrollable by remote control. Electrical home appliances came into picture between 1915 and 1920. During the World's Fairs of the 1930s, ideas similar to smart home systems were originated. In 1966 Jim Sutherland, an engineer working for Westinghouse Electric, developed a home automation system called "ECHO IV" which was a private project and never commercialized. During 1960's, American hobbyists built first "wired homes". The term "smart house" was first coined by the American Association of House-builders in 1984. Despite interest in smart home technology, by the end of the 1990s there was not a widespread uptake - with such systems and were still considered the sphere of techno-savvy or the rich.
Closed-circuit television or CCTV has been the original security essential as far as home automation is concerned. With the combination of security cameras and smart home automation, they have become all the more indispensable and sophisticated. Along with the standard usage for security purposes, the cameras installed in households can help pet owners monitor the activities of their pets. These cameras have motion sensors with the ability to self-activate when the pets move. These devices can also soothe pets that are nervous and are prone to damaging furniture and other home articles. For instance, the recently launched Petcube Play Interactive camera, a Wi-Fi enabled indoor pet camera that allows pet owners to check in on their pets through smartphones and other smart devices. It also allows interaction with the help of two-way audio and high definition video camera. The sound alerts added to the cameras notify users in case of major events.
