Melissa Conrad Smart Home, 2018-09-03 10:02:08. The key ingredient for any smart home is the network. While more and more devices connect to mobile technologies like 3G, 4G and traditional cellular, the most economical and secure network for your home is still a fixed wired or wireless one. LAN (wired Ethernet) has been around for decades but is still cheap, fast and compatible. If you're building a new house, renovating or don't mind DIY, installing CAT6 LAN cables are ideal, and will be fast enough to power your smart home devices probably for the next decade. CAT5e is the minimum cable type that is recommended to ensure reliable data speeds of at least 1 Gigabit over long distances but to truly relax buy CAT6 knowing you can reach speeds of 10 Gigabits up to 100m distances in the future if your devices need it. If you need to route cables externally through doorways or other tight spaces, CAT5e might be better since the cable is thinner, more flexible and can be flatter (if you choose flat cables). But bear in mind your network is the critical backbone of your smart home so investing a little more money and time is best if you plan to live in your home for many years. A 100Mbit LAN can support Blu-ray 1080p content; possibly 4k video, and you can be rest assured that a 1 Gigabit LAN should support your media streaming needs for at least the next 10 years. After all, Gigabit Ethernet can transfer data at more than 100 MBs, while 1080p Blu-ray streaming requires only around 5% of that.

Basically a light controller system can detect a motion within a closed area and can turn on the lights automatically. You can think that when you enter a room the lighting control can turn on the lights as an example. This is a very sample and a basic task for a home automation application. It is also easy to find sensors that are capable of managing such functionality without any difficulty in the market.

Dayana Gentry Smart Home, 2018-09-01 10:57:40. 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.

The home technology is evolving at a rapid pace. The technology is promising, convenient, and rapidly evolving. The modern world is reaching the tipping point as far as utilization of technology in homes, workplaces, and other spheres of daily human lives are concerned. Artificial intelligence (AI) is another such technology finding its way in daily human lives. Availability of a myriad of automated devices and high-tech concepts at the consumer technology and trade shows like the Consumer Electric Show (CES) only point out the advancement in automation technology. Along with enhancements, smart technology and smart home technology in particular is anticipated to become easily accessible. This could be one of the biggest high points for the consumers across the globe. Along with mechanized home features and security devices, consumers will witness the advent of technologies like lookout cameras for pets and automated shopping. Take a look at some of the imminent trends in home automation:
Finley Talley Smart Home, 2018-09-01 14:35:12. Good-guy hackers have proven again and again that they can hack into smart devices. Not only are they playfully scaring users by becoming digital poltergeists, but on a more serious note, they have found that they could orchestrate break-ins and harvest valuable personal data.
Daniella Mccray Smart Home, 2018-09-01 08:10:36. The idea of homes that we can interact with, program and monitor has been around for quite awhile. With the advent of wireless, bluetooth, RFID and the host of other networking technologies available we are beginning to see a flood of new home automation products appear on the market.

It’s also a quite complicated technology. Traditional people feel uncomfortable in using home automation technology. Technology also brings risk of hacking. Once the central controlling system of your home is hacked, the intruder can easily control your house. It is very difficult to identify that your automation system has been hacked.

In today's day and age, a lot of emphasis is being given to the technologies that make the daily lives comfortable, fast, and easy. Automation is one of such booming technologies witnessing advancements in terms of innovation and applications at a supersonic pace. Home automation or smart home technology involves mechanization of thermostats, security, temperature controls, and home appliances. Introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized smart home automation for the better. It offers automatic control of electronic and electric devices in homes. Users access these devices through wireless communication. Home appliance manufacturers from around the world are keen on inventing more effective and affordable devices to impel the sales and ensure customer satisfaction. As a result, the global demand for smart home automation is flooded with groundbreaking home systems.

A common tactic of hackers is to add malicious code to a website that will invite itself into your device and invisibly enslave it to work for a "botnet," which is a connected network of devices all working to hack something else. Internet of Things devices would be a perfect target, since they're seldom disconnected from the internet and their security is rarely considered.
Brenna Potter Smart Home, 2018-09-01 12:48:54. 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.
