Everyone has a smartphone, but do you have Smart devices? Because it’s time for The Internet of Things. These are various items in your house that are connected to the internet. These devices allows you to control your home. Here are a few ideas that may make sense for you.
If you’re at work, would you like to greet your children when they get home from school? Or maybe as they’re walking in the door? With two-way video calling you can say hello to your child when they come home. In addition, you can check to make sure they’re doing their homework. Watch to see if they’re sneaking snacks or just keep an eye on them in general. You can use your phone to watch from the smart video cameras at the house.
Do you have older children? Sometimes they like to sneak out of the house at night. I used to think I had that under control. But now they’re in their thirties. And they’ve told me some of the tricks they used. You can set a camera and capture your teens sneaking out of the house on video. The cameras can turn on lights and even sound an alarm when it detects them. You probably won’t be able to stop them totally from sneaking out.However, you can make it a little more difficult for them.
Have you heard about smart lighting? Yes, lights in your home can be connected to the internet, You can be program these lights through an app which will let you tell them when to turn on and when to turn off. Maybe you’re on your way home, and you want lights on in the house. Just turn them on from your phone while you’re in the car. Please don’t do it while you’re driving.
Are you on a diet, like many of us? Did you know that you can put a sensor on the door of your refrigerator or the snack cabinet? The sensors will report back to your cellphone via an app and let you know that – hey, you’ve been going into the junk food way too often.
You can control your life at your home remotely. Among other things, you can control lights,your thermostat. Also, you can set the alarm on the house, or you can even open the doors remotely in case you have a visitor that needs to get into the house. Would you like to have your refrigerator control the inventory inside it?
The Internet of Things is here. However, it’s your decision as to how much you want to use it.
