Are Smart Homes really Smart?

The Internet has made the lives of people very easy. Things that used to seem impossible then have become possible now. Not just that it has reduced the communication gap but has also brought a huge number of revolutions in our daily lives as well. Be it google home, WiFi nanny cam or other smart devices, we have come a long way through. Everything is reachable. We think it and we have it.

Smart home technology

Although the Smart home technology has not been nurtured much until now still there is a lot more than need to be considered in no time. People who are starting to adopt smart home technology sometimes find it frustrating because of one thing or the other. That is why today we will discuss all the pitfalls of the smart home technology so that they may be considered and addressed properly by the concerned authorities;

Pitfalls of Smart Home Technology

Every other day we get the news off something being invented for our ease. Same is the case with google home or other such technologies that have made our lives as easier as ever. Now, we do not even need to touch the screens and stuff gets done for us. A lot of people might think that if they can do stuff without even touching it, their home shave becomes start but that is not the fact. If your home is full of technological devices, it doesn’t mean that your home is fully connected as well. Although using such apps appeals to us and we feel excited about them but if we want to have smarter homes, we still have to walk a long way.

You must be thinking about what our concerns are. To your ease, here they are listed;

  • Lack of learning

  • Communication gap

Lack of learning

We should mould our minds in a way so that we may learn at every path of our lives. We need a lot to make our lives better than before and for that, learning is the key. You will see people describing a smartphone as the one with a lot of technological devices like heating systems, cooling systems, lighting systems and other such devices. But have you ever wondered if this is the standard for a smart home? Well, I don’t think so and I don’t agree with it 100 per cent. A smart home should be described as the one with the most learning capability. Your efforts should always be put in your house no matter what because after all it is your house and you should be the one to make its base or foundation. If you want to make your home smart, your home should be capable of learning. It must not fail on that part because of most of the homework on a simple and abasic theme. There is very less chance that you will see in how a house works no matter whether you have a hundred or thousand smart devising all around the home. Whether you are using your voice to turn on the AC or using the button, there wouldn’t be a very huge difference because after all, the way you are getting the results is pretty much the same. So, how does it make your home smart when the results are still the same?

If you want the home to be smart, the devices must be smart enough to sense that there is no one in a particular room so the lights must get turned off on their own.

True machine learning is way more than what we perceive it. That is why we should get advantage to form it in the right way.

Communication gap

Communication is very important in every relationship. Same should be the case between you and your home. If you have a deeper look at the importance of communication, you will realize how much it affects a relationship. Your devices should also make a good connection with you. You will be working with the devices all day long. So, the devices should be communicable enough so that they may be able to make your life as easier as possible.

Everything makes a difference. If you also think that your home is smart, have a thorough look at it again and come up with the results. Maybe it is not like what you think
