There is no doubt that we are living in the golden age of technology development. This space has developed tremendously as we witnessed the shift from pagers and corded phones to the indestructible Nokia and eventually to today’s smartphone. The proliferation of smartphones has led to the creation of applications (apps). As of 1st quarter 2018, there are 3,800,000 apps in Google Play and 2,000,000 apps in Apple App Store.

Apps are used for a myriad purpose and in recent years, they have been used for Smart Homes(Click here to find out more about what a smart home is). More than a thousand apps have been created for smart homes, with the same primary advantages:

1. Managing all of your home devices from one single place

The fact that you can control all your home devices from a single interface is a massive step forward for the amalgamation of technology into the home. The convenience that you can reap from this is enormous. So many possibilities arise when your devices are interconnected. We can only do them justice if we explained these possibilities in a separate article.

2. Enjoying the little comfort that makes a big difference

“John, are all the appliances turned off?”, “Ouch, what did I kick… it’s so dark…”

Does this sound familiar to you? Users are tired of forgetting to turn off their devices or switches before leaving the house. This adds up in a utility bill. With a smart home, all of this can be avoided – it is as simple as pressing a single button to switch off all devices before leaving the house. On top of that, many users are also tired of trying to find their way around the house at night. With a smart home, it is intelligent enough to know that you are awake in the middle of the night – lights would be turned on automatically for you to get to the toilet with better visibility. There are just so many examples of these little comforts that you can get with a smart home. Little comforts add up to make a big, positive difference in your lives.

3. Maximising home security

Your home security is boosted when you incorporate security and surveillance features into your smart home network. Such features include connecting motion detectors, surveillance cameras, door locks and many more. A thoughtful smart home solution would notify you about anomalies or security breaches. Such features were hardly available in the past but now, voila! You can get away in peace and enjoy your holiday!
