The internet of things, intelligent kitchens and the Smart Home: how our everyday habits will change.
Would you like to live in a home with a virtual assistant to help you with all kinds of household or kitchen needs? Welcome to the age of the smart home!
Olly, Google Home, Amazon Echo, Apple homekits… Say hello to just a few of the robot vocal assistants on the market! What they all share is the ability to search the internet for the information we request and to control our connected household appliances.
The differences between them don’t matter here: the point is that the hyper-connected smart home mounted by Big G a few years ago in Milan to demonstrate its technological features, is now part of everyday reality.
Imagine that you want to astonish your dinner guests with an original menu, about which you have a basic idea, but you’ve only got two hands, very little time and not much idea about how to prepare such a dish.
At this point, our Google Home, Apple homekit or other smart assistant device will understand the nature and context of our question or command, supply a series of intelligent options and, when instructed, activate all the pertinent appliances in our smart home. At the same time, also through vocal commands, we can choose, activate and adjust video or audio systems, all without needing either a smartphone or a remote control device.
We’ve heard it talked about for years, now The Internet of Things is an everyday reality: smart homes are starting to contain various elegantly designed and increasingly intelligent devices providing all kinds of benefits, especially in terms of comfort, energy savings and security.
