Every day seems to bring another new smart device to the market. Several key technology areas are driving the innovation – the availability of inexpensive, powerful chips, cloud-based software platforms, multiple wireless technologies, and machine learning – are enabling the addition of intelligent features to a slew of home devices.
Earlier this year at the CES consumer technology show, we saw a host of new smart devices introduced. Smart lights, speakers, thermostats, coffeemakers, washing machines, irrigation controllers, refrigerators, ranges, and even toilets are getting injections of smart technology. The technology in your home is accelerating from interesting novelty to genuine usefulness. Automation will bring about a change in how we use and manage our homes. The functionality of smart home devices and systems is only getting better every year, and as it matures, we will become more accustomed to it and grow to depend on it in our daily lives – much like the smartphone.
Since we're early in this new year, we want to highlight the trends that will be driving the new smart products you will see in 2019. This is the year when smart home automation becomes mainstream. If you haven't yet invested in a home automation system for your Groton residence, there is no better time.
Read on to learn more about the smart home automation trends you’ll be seeing this year.
