It’s easy to dismiss “the Internet of Things” as a meaningless buzz-phrase, but the next generation of always-on, connected home devices are going to make everyday life different in more ways than one – here we’re going to highlight some of the changes you can expect.
Of course it’s going to be a gradual process, and some people are going to embrace the IoT lifestyle quicker than others, but eventually even the most sluggish tech adopters are going to notice the benefits of this new wave of hardware devices and software systems.
1. Remote control households
One of the main advantages of having everything in your home hooked up to the web is being able to operate your appliances from anywhere – whether you want to turn the lights on while you’re away from home to scare off the burglars or you need to check what’s in the fridge before you set off on your journey home from work, the Internet of Things has you covered.
2. Improved home security
Clever devices like Dropcam and Canary are changing the way that people keep an eye on their homes: these smart, simple to use security cameras can alert you when unexpected motion is detected and let you tap into a live feed of your living room any time you like. Even when you’re not at home, you can keep an eye on the pets, the kids or the back door that has a dodgy lock.
