The world is becoming more and more computerised by the day. More people are upgrading their mobiles to smartphones, older generations are joining the younger and flocking to social media, and you can now have sparkly clean floors without having to lift a finger. Which begs the question, can you have a fully automated smart life? Is it even possible?
Everybody has their own idea of what their perfect smart home would be, and that’s purely because of personal taste and budget. However, we think that it’s possible to have an ultimate automated smart life.
Let’s imagine it this way…
You’ve just finished work and after a long, busy, and difficult day. Customers were rude, your manager changed your workload and your feet ache. All you want to do is go home and relax. You leave work and head to your Tesla, which automatically pulls out of its parking space and towards you. It then adjusts the suspension to the terrain of the road so you can drive knowing it will be a smooth ride. You won’t have to worry about dangerous drivers either thanks to your car’s rear, side and front-facing cameras eliminating your blindspot.
You arrive home after a long but very comfortable commute and you’re immediately greeted with the humbling thought that your home is safe and sound even after being at work all day, and that’s thanks to your Ring security system keeping an eye on your home. You know your cat is in because Ring alerted you of his presence via your mobile app, which means first on the agenda is feeding him.
After feeding Tiddles you’re ready to spend the evening unwinding, but not until after making something delicious to eat! You use your uControl app to switch on your MHUB PRO and listen to your favourite podcast while you’re cooking dinner. While preparing your food you notice you need to go shopping, so you use your Google home hub so that tomorrow you don’t forget any of the essentials.
Once you’ve eaten dinner and packed away your plate into your smart dishwasher, it’s time to wind down in front of the television for a few hours, after all, you deserve it! You’ve just sat down and remembered that you didn’t grab the TV remote from the other side of the room, but that doesn’t matter because your uControl app can again control your TV and you can choose something interesting to watch. You notice that the Lord of the Rings is about to start and turn on your integrated Focal speakers to feel the full cinematic experience. However, you feel like you’re straining your neck to watch your TV. Luckily, that’s quickly solved by using your motorised TV mount from Vogel’s, adjusting to the optimal viewing position.
A little later you realise that you need to register your vote for the elections, so you head to your home office with your laptop and plug it into your PANCONNECT integrated flush mount, hiding all wires and making connectivity for your devices so much easier. You don’t have to worry about slow internet speeds either, because you know that your Purelink ethernet cable has got your back. You head to the Smartmatic website and register your vote without having to leave the comfort of your home.
You soon finish sending voting and sending off urgent emails and decide to go for a long, hot bath to help you relax before bed. You’re in your bathroom, which is already filling with steam and relaxing aromas, and you power on your ProofVision bathroom TV so that you can sink back and soak all of your troubles away.
Later, when you’re just drifting off to sleep, you notice that it’s a little chilly in your bedroom, so you use your smart heating system controlled by your smartphone to heat your home up to the perfect temperature. You find it easy to fall asleep after asking Alexa to play soothing ocean sounds combined with the assuring knowledge that your home is tailored to your every need.
As you can see, it’s totally possible to live an automated life with pretty much every task being made easier. Even chores such as cutting your lawn and maintaining your garden can be automated now thanks to robotic lawnmowers and smart irrigation systems.
How can I make my life automated?
Simply put, by purchasing technology that can automate your life with ease. There are dozens of products that claim to offer these kinds of features yet forget to mention it’s only with their own branded products. Not only that, cheap smart home automation products are likely to let you down. While over time the prices of smart home automation will reduce, to gain the full automated experience you’re better off investing your money into a decent brand.
We understand that this won’t come cheap to you and that money might not be endless, but luckily many smart home automation products come with the option for financing, meaning that you can have the perfect smart life and pay it off gradually.
Technology confuses me, what can I do to resolve this?
You don’t have to understand all of the jargon to use smart technology but if you’re still not sure, you can always speak to your distributors for some advice. Quite often, distributors host training events for those that want to make the most out of their products, or simply those who want to learn how to use them properly. Not only that, pretty much every product that you can buy in this day and age can be found online with detailed guides and videos to help you better understand your products.
So what are you waiting for? An automated smart life is just around the corner!
