Smart home technology is exciting, but is it right for you?

Smart Home Technology Can Be Exciting, But Are You Using The Right One

Homeowners are typically attracted to smart home features and appliances because of the ease and convenience it renders. Undoubtedly, these are amazing features as they are known to save time, effort and most importantly, money. With the excitement surrounding these smart homes and technological features one would think that man’s perception about them would be broader, sadly it’s pretty confined. Home automation isn’t just about appliances and internet connectivity, it’s about linking the entire home and creating a user-friendly lifestyle for the homeowner.

However, it’s the features that we cannot do without that take intelligent technology to the next level. Recent studies have highlighted the lines that smart technology must cross if it’s to impact its user’s electricity bills. One of these lines is going beyond home automation. Smart devices promise so much, but the few that actually deliver on these promises are fully synced with user’s lifestyle, thus granting them control over every detail and these are their recommendations.

Diversity is key

Every user and home is unique, and when planning to change the energy market in residential response programs one should never use a one size fits all strategy. This is because different people relate with their energies differently, and hence the solution to the problem regarding energy combing seems agnostic. The world and technology is moving so fast everyday hence these agnostic platforms and solutions need to be considered. Not just because it’s a plausible solution but because our brand believes in a unique, singularity approach.

What is Tech-agnostic?

This simply means having the ability to connect and gain access to different tools and appliances without being confined to one particular technology. Agnosticism, the religious word, however is similar in this context because our brand offers an unbiased approach in solving different problems using different technological tools, options and brands. This ultimately makes running a business or looking after your home much more efficient.

Its importance

This is important because some brands will only offer you the basics of home automation, like voice activation, light control, etc, and this comes with different specifics and technicalities. Hence access to other vital tasks is denied, and this is a problem because, once you commit to a particular brand, you deny yourself the freedom to unlock these tasks because your brand may not have the supportive features to perform these tasks.

Once you stay technologically agnostic, you can pick and organize your tech engagements according to your lifestyle and preferences. Our brand gives you this ability, hence the balance of cost and quality is greatly leveled.

How you can manage these solutions

The home automation solutions are multiple when you decide to go agnostic, but to manage all these solutions you’ll need a smart hub. This acts like a home for all your smart home products and technologies, through which you get to choose the options that best suits your needs.

    My Home is smart since 2017. I have connected a lamp with a plug-in dimmer and wireless sensors connected to a smartphone app to control it all.

      Interesting. Can you say something more about it? What app do you use? Hello dear ROXer friend! 🙂

    Great Blog post! Since we moved in into our new home, we had a plan to turn it fully smart, but the tech costs a lot. We are looking for cheaper yet more sustainable solutions. Well, that’s why I have joined the Robotina ICO in the first line. Waiting form our HEMS to arrive, a first step was made, hopefully a smart one.

      This is exactly why I joined the ICO also, other systems can cost you a few thousand euros so Robotina can really offer something others can’t at this price point.

      Me too, I’ve planned to turn our home fully smart until 2020. I’m interested in projects which have the capacity to turn the game into our – the customres favour. That’s why I beleive that HEMS is a good investment for the beginning since it automatically lowers your energy consumption + you get your rewards. Such a unique and integrative model has not been seen so far, thumbs up!

    A smart home doesn’t only save much money and energy, but it also makes your life way more simple. You don’t have to think ybout cheap rates, when to turn on/off stuff… Less things on my mind, way more time to focus on really important things. 🙂
