It's easy to overlook the power needs of your devices. Some people only discover their power setup is deficient after buying and setting up all their devices. In today's modern home, full of portable electronics that must be charged up, lights, televisions, routers, speakers and other gadgets, one quickly runs out of available power sockets. If you are buying energy intensive devices like heaters, ovens, large entertainment systems and the like, it's also quite possible you will overload your home's mains power. In traditional mains wiring, at least each room, and normally lights and power sockets in the room, will have a circuit breaker rated at a particular amperage. If you plug in too many devices you might overload the circuit breaker and find your TV suddenly cutting out in the middle of your favorite show, your blog article being lost when the PC loses juice or your bread loaf dying when the oven cuts out unexpectedly - a nightmare for anyone. If your home is poorly wired or older, overloading might also present a fire risk. Another issue is lack of space to plug things in - you will probably need mains extension "bricks" and adapters everywhere if your house is older or poorly designed with insufficient outlets.
One of the main areas that has been explored for smart homes is that related to improving health. Several IoT smart home products have been developed that aim to monitor the status of the environment in the house. This includes, for example, monitoring the condition of the air across a number of categories - humidity, temperature, dust, CO2 etc. This information is then transmitted to a control interface where the user (the home owner or house occupier) can examine it and take appropriate action. Alternatively, this can be linked into other systems whereby automatic action can be taken to bring conditions back to the desired level, such as automatically turning air cooling or filtering systems on. Other appliance-based solutions that are on the market include fridges that can monitor the status of food, checking for spoilage or similar, while automated cleaning can help reduce dust and dirt in the house.
Formerly, voice-controlled devices could only play music. Now, there are voice-controlled devices that can act as your assistants. They can set your alarms, control your lights and even give you directions, even without pressing any buttons. Some of these devices can even alert you if anything unusual happens at home.
