Why Do You Need it?
In short, a smart home makes it easy to control your smart devices from your smart phone. If you are over a certain age, you will remember asking the kids to turn over the TV for you or be running around hunting for the remote control. Those days are gone and sometimes it’s not even necessary to have your phone within reach as smart devices can be set to turn on and off at certain times of the day or work through a simple spoken command through Alexa, Google or Siri. Devices such as smart security systems or doorbells also enhance the security of your home.

Can it Save You Money?
The biggest benefit from a smart home is energy efficiency which in turn lowers the cost of your annual bills. Smart devices are cheaper to run and more energy efficient than their manual counterparts and can be specifically controlled to use less energy at certain times of day. Being able to control devices in this way also means you can benefit from a more precise thermostat control or setting your washing machine to run at cheaper times of the day when you aren’t there to manually switch it on.

What Are the Pitfalls of Smart Homes?
The biggest pitfall of a smart home is the level of complexity if you aren’t used to using tech but this is quickly resolved once everything is set up correctly and you learn how to use them. Another possible pitfall of smart homes is the sheer amount of devices on the market from different brands and that they may not work smoothly together all of the time.

How Does Smart Look for 2023 and Beyond?
It’s only getting bigger, better and even more smart. A certain brand of fridge now has cameras installed so you can check the contents of your fridge while shopping! While you might not want to go this far, all in all the general population are embracing smart homes and devices for their ease of use and the ability to make things easy and more secure as well as lowering their bills in the home.
