There’s No Place Like the Smart Home
In the home, innovative technology will be integrated in ways that are unassuming and lifestyle-improving.
The smart home is becoming a health stronghold with an ever-increasing selection of domestic devices on offer, designed for the unobtrusive ambient monitoring of people’s health, helping them to make life-optimising choices. Take Californian sleep tech brand Ergomotion’s new connected mattress ErgoSportive, which gathers sleep data to provide customised recovery advice.
Another aspect of consumer lifestyles that smart home tech is supporting comes in the form of blue tech. With five billion people globally projected to face water stress or scarcity by 2050, blue tech will play a seismic role in ensuring the fair distribution of water and reducing related energy costs. The Amazon-assisted sleek showerheads from Orbital save both water and energy – the Swedish company claims the savings to be up to 90% – by letting users control the water temperature and flow, bathroom lighting, and even music with voice commands, turning a daily task into an immersive energy-saving experience.
But what does this tech trend mean for your business? Consider your brand’s place in the smart home: how can your products or services enable healthier, more comfortable lifestyles while addressing growing concerns amidst an energy and climate crisis?
