  • Your Home Is Your Castle: Home Automation at the Consumer Electronics Show

Overview: Technology advances at such a rapid pace that we commonly joke about how our gadgets become obsolete soon after we buy them. The paradox is that we frequently wonder why in 2015 our lives don’t resemble that of The Jetsons. Read the following blog to find out more about the future of home automation.

The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas had the usual Smörgåsbord of high tech gadgetry like Ultra High-Definition televisions, but this year there is an increased interest in home automation systems. Tech giants like Apple, Google and Microsoft have all recently invested in various home automation systems. Apple is launching Homekit where voice commands with Siri can control various household functions like turning lights on and off. Google has bought Nest, an advanced thermostat controller that has multi colour LED screen that looks like it belongs in a futuristic sci-fi movie. Home automation systems like Nest, save homeowners money by controlling the climate in the home efficiently. These high-tech gadgets learn the fluctuations of heat in your home and then utilize them in everyday use. For example, when you leave your home for work, the thermostat automatically lowers and upon your arrival, the system returns the climate to your desired level.

For some people, the idea of Wi-Fi controlled slow cookers, coffee makers, humidifiers and washing machines seem like a novelty. Others view that home automation is going to revolutionize daily chores. Doesn’t matter where you stand on the subject, various ranges of home automation is becoming increasingly popular. New homebuyers are having their homes preconfigured to maximize home automation technology. And with the evolution of wireless technology, older homes don’t need to undergo invasive installations to enjoy the benefits of a home automation system.

Home automation is not just about cooking a roast in a slow cooker from work via your smartphone; the most common use of this technology is for home security. The CES presented various security systems ranging from alarm systems set up to protect your home like Fort Knox to simple camera and motion detector monitors. Older security systems were equipped with bulky keypads, landline requirements for a telephone and required complicated installations. Home automation systems like the ones Frontline install in homes, don’t require any of the above-mentioned obstacles. Video surveillance of your home both inside and outside, can be monitored and controlled from your smartphone. Newer security systems also have the ability to learn and recognize the motion of your pets, which no longer triggers false alarms. The monitoring of your home is done with full crystal clear images through high-definition cameras and can be monitored from your smartphone or tablet from any location.

Bottom Line: The take away at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show from Las Vegas is that home automation is finally moving in the direction of The Jetsons. You will have the ability to control lighting applications, heating, appliances and security at your fingertips from anywhere in the world. The idea may still seem novel, but that’s only until you crave a cup of home brewed coffee that is magically made by a command from your smartphone, just moments before you walk through your front door. After the first sip of your coffee, you will view home automation as a necessity and not a gimmick. The team at Frontline Security in Calgary can install and revolutionize your castle with a state-of-the-art home automation system.
