Home Technology Trends to Watch in 2023
Enhanced machine-to-machine communication
One of the biggest themes in the tech world right now is communication, especially in relation to the IoT, or “Internet of Things.” Most people have adopted at least a few smart home devices, apps, or tools into their daily routines, but as “smart” as those gadgets may be, they don’t always communicate smoothly. Integration issues can really throw a wrench into your routine, which is why the forthcoming home technology standard Matter is so eagerly anticipated.
If you’re not clear on what Matter is and why it, well, matters, check out our explainer article, What is Matter? Everything You Need to Know About the New Smart Home Technology Standard. But don’t just take our word for it. According to Forbes,
“The focus will continue to grow on enabling more useful and complex machine-to-machine interactions. Today, we are used to filling our homes with smart gadgets and appliances and our workspaces with smart tools and applications. But we often run into problems when machines have difficulty communicating due to different platforms and operating systems. In 2023, we will see further work on the development of global standards and protocols that devices can use to talk to each other. This means they will work more effectively and be capable of assisting us with a broader range of tasks.”
Smart security for the IoT
Of course, we can’t speak of interconnectivity without thinking about security. The tradeoff for convenience is risk, and any smart home system should be designed with security and safety in mind. After all, any tech that is on your WiFi network is a potential chink in the armor, and today’s bot-assisted hackers are more clever and tenacious than ever. Choosing the right devices and settings is key to keeping your personal information safe … Yet another reason to enlist our help in designing, installing, and programming smart home devices that not only make life easier, but also safer.
In addition to the network security of your smart home gadgets, you can also improve your home security with smart locks and surveillance tools. From video doorbells to security cameras, there are more options than ever before to keep an eye on your home, even when you’re on the go.
AI (artificial intelligence) and machine learning are hot topics lately. From a Google whistleblower claiming that the company’s AI has gained sentience, to the profusion of AI-generated art and NFTs, it seems there’s some new AI headline in the news every day. While not nearly as dramatic, smart assistant devices like Alexa and Siri continue to be popular with homeowners, and their smart features only continue to grow.
