Hey all, Welcome to Geeksforjobs
According to research, the total number of IoT devices to be added in 2025 will be more than 64 billion, compared to around 10 billion in 2020. The first and most beneficial feature is for smart homes. More connected devices can handle more operations such as regulating room temperature, lighting, etc.
Smart technology scene
In addition, smart home IoT devices are cost effective and can help reduce costs as well as conserve energy. For example, you will find a cottage and funky apartment as soon as you get home, but leave your air conditioning when you are not at home, which can reduce your bills and reduce energy consumption. Smart lights work in this way.
Of course, there are disadvantages, as well. Most people think that smart home devices are expensive compared to their non-connected counterparts, so they think it will kill their wallets.
Suppose that connected LED bulbs cost an average of $ 13 compared to non-connected LED bulbs, compared to $ 6. However, the value of those connected bulbs has plummeted within the last two years, so the prices of smart home IoT devices may fall further and make them cheaper to the specific consumer.
Layout towards the future
Below are some possible scenarios that we might see in the future as well:
These days there is a craze for smart lighting. They will be determined to show and change their intensity. However, in the future, it can be taken a step further. With IoT enabled throughout the home, lights can respond to other actions you are taking.
For example, lights can respond to your home cinema. Whenever you start watching a movie, they will stop or slow down. Going forward, they will also react to the type of film. For example, they will go off completely if the lights make sense that you are just watching a horror film, which gives you the right atmosphere.
In the future, doors can be even smarter. Imagine it will open only when you enter or close. This may be possible through a sensible device or facial recognition. This will take you to a later step by getting the remaining part of the house to work together with your entry.
For example, lights may be activated as soon as they enter through the door. Alternatively, if you are leaving, they will be closed.
Windows can be smarter. Imagine that they automatically open the shutter when the sun rises and closes at sunset. Even when it rains you will be ready to program them to shut down automatically. Consider the previous example of a film. Whenever you are watching a film, your curtains may be reduced.
Even your gardens can be smarter with IoT within the future. You will be ready to place the IoT sensor inside the garden. If these sensors detect dryness within the soil, they will trigger the irrigation system. Robotic lawnmovers are often deployed automatically if the grass exceeds a particular height.
It is already possible to connect to many smart home appliances. Smart sockets can automatically turn on / off devices. Smart alarms can play music when you wake up or perhaps tell you the news. Moving forward, it can be extended throughout the house.
Consider a morning routine. The shutter opens before you wake up to help alleviate that grief. Even before you wake up, the kitchen appliances will start preparing your morning cup. The water from the toilet will heat your shower. As soon as you have your morning cup, your stereo will start playing some morning tune. Your TV will also be activated and show you your favorite news channel. Of course, the thermostat would correspond to a cushion temperature.
Of course, not all of them are going to happen overnight. There are some obstacles to the widespread adoption of IoT-enabled smart homes, the first being cost. Privacy is another major concern. Then there are the current technical limitations that cause difficulties during uninterrupted connections between many IoT devices.
What is ‘IOT’?
In its most literal sense, IoT (Internet of Things) refers to everything connected to the web. However, until recently, the term is generally used to define communication between smart devices without human interaction. Consider it as a conversation between your smart devices. For example, consider that Alexa Echo was gifted to you for Diwali. This device can act as a central voice-activated hub to regulate your thermostat, lighting, audio system, TV, and more. As a result, you get yourself an Alexa smart home – a voice-controlled system of integrated technologies working together to provide you with a more streamlined experience reception.
First, we have found the Amazon Echo, arguably the primary and most recognizable name during this space. The smart device acts as a central hub for other smart gadgets, and is its voice activated assistant. Alexa offers an excellent voice control system that can match only a few other products. Amazon also offers two sister products, Null and So Dot.
The August Smart Lock provides enhanced security for the home, is simple to keep straight and works with Siri via the Apple HomeKit.
And for smart bulbs, there’s the Lifx Color 1000, which can essentially change color, and therefore the Philips Hue Wireless Dimming Kit for your white-light needs.
