Once, a Jetsons kind of life seemed like a pipe dream, the stuff of cartoons. Well, even pipe dreams come true. Though we’re not yet zipping through the sky to commute to and from work, today’s smart home technology is making many of our daily commutes more than just a way home. Example:
Imagine it’s the end of a long work day. It’s cold and dark and you’re dog-tired. As you head home, the thermostat there monitors your location and adjusts the home’s inside temp to your desired comfort. When you reach your street, the garage door lifts. Inside, the lights switch on to create a warm and inviting ambience for you, while the silky smooth baritone of Michael Bublé, from your preselected playlist, sings softly in the background. Ah, home at last.
With the price of smart home tech having dropped to more affordable levels in recent years, it’s no wonder that more of us are installing high-tech features that oversee our home’s temperature, lights, safety and more. Plus, many of these gadgets are either voice-activated or controlled via a smartphone. Which means you can lower your garage door while basking in the sun on the beach at Waikiki.
