Smart Actions for an Intelligent Home

An intelligent home learns and works around you, observing your lifestyle, which rooms you spend the most time in and how you use heating and lighting. Multimedia and household appliances interact and can be controlled remotely. In an intelligent home, devices use data, analytics, and sensors to work automatically around your habits.  

Intelligent home technology is based on smart home devices and technology. Consumers need to adopt an intelligent home system that enables them to control heating, lights, security systems, smart TVs, and other appliances. For instance, an intelligent home can learn behaviors and make sure the house is cooled down by the time homeowners arrive from work.

Housing developers also play a part in this process. They should take into account building intelligent homes since this makes properties attractive to home buyers. Consumers are interested in remotely controlling their home security and temperature systems.

Intelligent home systems and services are supported by key enabling technologies such as cloud computing, IoT (Internet of Things), big data and analytics. These homes will be very useful for certain segments of the population, like the elderly who want to live independently for longer, having a home that intelligently looks after them, monitors them, and makes sure they are comfortable and healthy.

Some actions that you can take to make your home intelligent are:

  • Schedule and control the heating and cooling of your home
  • Install lighting systems that can detect when occupants are in the room and adjust lighting as needed
  • Activate the security cameras so sensor inputs are stored and used in a search for patterns of behavior and detect situations that differ from the ones learnt by the home
  • Enable the intelligent home to detect your movement and notice when you leave a room, so it continues playing music from one room to another
  • Buy a smart pet feeder so your pet will always have food
  • Install connected timers so your houseplants and lawn can be watered
  • Deploy a household system that can sense an electric surge and turn off appliances

The intelligent home is the next stage of evolution beyond connected and smart household devices. It is the next step in how our homes will be designed and function in the future. The intelligent home learns the behaviors and preferences of the occupants of the home.
