Every year, technology evolves to improve our lives. This extends to mobile apps to help us while we are on the go, and things such as home automation to help us when we are at home. With all of the technology advancements, we are always growing closer to the futuristic lifestyle depicted in the Jetsons.Mother and daughter making dinner using futuristic interface

According to experts, 2014 is going to be the year of the smart home, or a house with technology integrated into it. Home automation is becoming the new normal for three areas of the home.

  • Energy Management – when it comes to managing your homes heating and cooling systems, home automation will help you monitor your energy use. This can be great to help you save money on your energy bill as well as reduce your family’s impact on the environment.  Home automation systems allow you to remotely adjust the temperature, lighting system and more for a remote location. This increases your ability to save energy by turning on lights as you arrive home instead of leaving them on. Check out all of the information we have to offer about energy efficiency.
  • Kitchen Enhancements – your kitchen could use a futuristic upgrade; after all, it is the heart of your home. Imagine if you could turn on the faucet without touching it with your dirty hands? Or if your dishwasher worked faster and more efficiently reducing your need to wash the dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. Additionally, ovens now have sensors that will rotate your pan so your food is evenly cooked throughout and other appliances
  • Property Safety – Every homeowner wants to do everything in their power to keep their home safe and secure. For that, there is camera surveillance, home security systems and more. With these security solutions, your home can be more secure than ever before. With an automated home security system set up, you can get video alerts at your home whenever there is any activity.
