New technology has changed the way we live and work. And just as technology has made us more efficient at work, it is also making us much more efficient at home as well.
Smart home technology can automate just about every aspect of our homes from security and lighting, to entertainment, comfort and more. And as today’s homeowners become much more dependent on smart home technology, we, as CCTV installers, need to understand and keep up with these trends.
With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the latest smart home design trends that can integrate with CCTV systems to create a truly usable smart home experience for our clients.
4 Smart Home Design Trends For 2020
Modular Kitchen- with the kitchen being the most used room in most homes, smart home technology is changing the way today’s kitchens look and respond. Modular kitchen designs are responsive and integrate with whole-home smart systems making everything from organisation and cooking, to entertainment, music, lighting and security information all easily accessible. Smart refrigerators with built-in touchscreens even let homeowners monitor their CCTV system while cooking.
Digital Assistant Integration- whether you use Amazon Alexa, Samsung Bixby, Apple’s Siri or Google Assistant, there is a wide range of digital assistants available that make everything from watching TV and listening to music, to turning on and off the lights and viewing CCTV camera systems easier with just the sound of your voice.
AI-Based Smart CCTV Camera Systems – both wireless and Wi-Fi-enabled cameras are nothing new and this technology is beginning to crossover into the CCTV industry. We are seeing more and more smart camera systems and AI-based CCTV systems that include facial recognition, adaptive night vision technology and other features which enable you to track a person from camera to camera with ease.
Comprehensive Sensors- advanced sensors enable smart-homes to predict a wide range of problems inside the home before they arise and take the necessary precautions by alerting homeowners. These sensors can also communicate with each other and camera systems to provide instant data about the status of the home.
