About this Event
Any home can be a smart home, whether it’s a studio apartment or a mansion. An official definition of “smart home” doesn’t exist. What started as more of a buzzword has entered into a common usage. A smart home is probably best defined as a living area with connected technology meant to enhance the home and goes far beyond smart thermostats, smart lights, smart plugs or outlets, smart doorbells, and locks, or voice assistants like Google Assistant or Alexa.
The smart home is often already designed as smart by architects or by electricity engineers planning the smart use of energy long before we can have a smart discussion with Alexa.
One is however certain ‒ there is no smart home without data analytics, big data or Internet of things or Blockchain ‒ they are all essential to derive knowledge and support applications for smart homes.
