EVERYTHING has definitely become smarter, from mobile phones to home appliances, making lives more convenient. Even houses nowadays have become equipped with technology as more people ride the rising trend of smart homes.
Furthermore, people's curiosity about all things smart continues to rise due to rapid technological advancements and their promise of making lives easier. Here are some of the technologies people could expect in a vibrant smart home living:
Smart lock
Getting inside one's home should be a breeze. With the smart lock feature, homemakers could bid farewell to digging deep in their bags for keys. All that needs to be done is enter the password on the digital numeric keypad or open the door via fingerprint scan. Homeowners could even unlock their doors through a smartphone app.
Audio, video intercom
Condominium residents usually have 24/7 security and is a must for those living alone or, more importantly, those with kids. Having an audio and video intercom device that lets residents see the person in the lobby before opening the door adds a layer of protection. To add, the smart home device is also connected to a smartphone app that could be accessed anytime and anywhere, putting homeowners' minds at ease.
Smart power switches
Smart power switches are one of the most popular smart home features that define high-tech living. With just a click, a light could be switched on, and with just a few app navigations, brightness could be adjusted from white to warm depending on the mood or the occasion. Having the ability to control the lights with just a few taps, even from the outside, could truly impress friends and families visiting.
Smart power outlets
Smart power outlets are innovative electrical outlets that let homeowners control their appliances remotely via app. Worrying about appliances like the stove and the air conditioner left turned on could be avoided as one could easily turn it off from anywhere, in real-time. To add, homeowners could also save on energy since they could turn off appliances when not in use, avoiding unnecessary energy consumption.
Having smart home features in one's own residence could truly make life more convenient, secure and exciting. Most modern residences, especially newly built high-rise condominiums, are now equipped with smart locks, audio and video intercom devices, smart power switches, and smart outlets, among other modern features to keep up with Filipinos' growing high-tech lifestyle.
