Bluetooth connectivity is something many homeowners associate with their mobile phones or audio systems, but builders are now integrating the short-range networking technology throughout housing projects in what is being called the “Smart Home.”
Garage doors, appliances, heating and cooling, lights, windows, blinds, door bells, hot water heaters, and yes, entertainment systems. The “Internet of Things” connects hardware around the house to you and other devices.
Suddenly nearly every device and appliance can be networked via Bluetooth. Garage doors, appliances, heating and cooling, lights, windows, blinds, door bells, water heaters, and yes, entertainment systems. The so-called Internet of Things opens incredible new opportunities to connect hardware around the house to the Internet, which gives families the power to monitor and control their homes in ways that rival science fiction fantasy. With a laptop, tablet or smart phone, you can adjust what’s happening in your house from nearly any corner of the planet.
Heating and cooling systems like Nest and Ecobee3 delivers control via the Internet and unprecedented fine tuning through multiple sensors in multiple rooms connected via WiFi. Smart Light Bulbs from Phillips Electronics allow you to adjust both brightness and color temperature of individual lights. Locks, home security and remote monitoring systems give unprecedented control over the security and sanctity of your family and property. And wireless sprinkler control systems mean you can water the lawn yourself even when you’re away.
