It’s been around for longer than you think!

There is no doubt that Smart Home Technology is constantly changing and progressing. From the first-ever microwave to automated robots that clean your floors, we’ve come a long way. 

The 1900s started with the new home technology development, where many home devices changed the game for home living forever. 

However, the first intelligent devices introduced themselves in the 90s. Over time, smart devices became more affordable, and everything was becoming controlled by the smartphone, so you could adjust your heating before you arrived home from work. Very helpful in the winter months!

Health and wellbeing benefits

The relationship between technology and health & wellbeing became more significant when it started to reap many benefits for home tech users. The tech industry aims to improve our health and well-being through technology. 

The first stair lift was invented back in 1920 by C.C. Crispen. He wanted his friend to be able to get up and down the stairs with ease. 

Smart beds are a significant piece of home tech. They can gather data while you sleep and improve your quality of sleep. Smart home tech doesn’t just apply to smart beds; voice activations can control your home. The voice-controlled devices can remind people to take their medications. 

Voice controlled

Alexa is the most popular and exciting innovative technology virtual assistant in forever, and if you haven’t heard of it, you’ve been living under a rock. Alexa is Amazon’s voice-activated AI-powered digital companion that can control a whole digital community in your home. It is compatible with many devices and includes products from Samsung and Nest. In addition to in-home speakers, Alexa is now available on many smart devices, such as televisions. You can ask Alexa to play a song or playlist through Spotify that you are currently loving or even ask her what the weather is today, where you are or anywhere in the world. It’s such a popular choice in many households today. 

That’s the same concept as Alexa, except Google developed it. That’s beneficial for users as Google has more extensive search engine space, which can help you ask more complex questions. Both voice-activated technologies are good choices for your home.

The continued progress that not only home technology but technology, in general, has provided is undoubtedly evident. We can now add an abundance of convenience to our daily lives simply by clicking a button or saying a few words. Home technology is becoming more sophisticated, and the experts are sure it’ll only get more intelligent.
