To simply say, technology has made our lives easier, is a gross understatement. Many of us, ahem, a bit more seasoned, remember a time before technology exploded, when the internet was either non-existent or in its infancy and smartphones weren’t in the hands of everyone we knew.
Our basis for future possibilities came from TV shows, like “The Jetsons”, and blockbuster movies, like “Back to the Future II”, all of which provided technological ideas and the effects such innovations could have on our impending lives. At the time, it all seemed like a fantasy with a little cuckoo sprinkled in, but still, many of us hoped for a day when just a few of these modernizations would come to pass.
Fast forward to today. Many of Hollywood’s creative predications have turned out to be somewhat spot on. Take today’s smart home technology, for example. Although not exactly what was portrayed on the big and little screens, smart home technology is certainly raising homes’ IQs.
Smart home technology refers to smart devices connected through a home network, allowing for the remote management of certain home functions with a push of a button. There are smart thermostats, garage door openers, appliances, door locks, security cameras, like Arlo Go, and much more that can be controlled with apps.
Google Home and Amazon Echo can answer questions, play our favorite tunes and control connected devices through voice instructions, when configured to do so, and according to Tech Crunch, approximately 39 million Americans now possess this type of device.
Daily, it seems, something new is introduced, leaving many of us scratching our heads to understand how it works, but through it all, we embrace technology for how it improves the quality of our lives and seek out the latest gadgets to add to our collections.
