As you look ahead to 2019, you might realize it’s time to upgrade your home automation system. Maybe you haven’t made the jump over to full home automation, and you are wanting to simplify your life with all that technology has to offer. Homes are continuing to get smarter. Technology has woven itself into our daily lives, from the simplest of tasks to the most complex, and 2019 has some exciting trends.

  • From “The Touch of a Button” to “The Sound of Your Voice”: If you can control it from your smartphone, then you can likely control it with your voice. Setup your “Wake-up” or “Home from Work” home routines to happen the second you tell them to. That means lights, music, etc. Have it customized for different seasons, controlling your fireplace, A/C, and fans. “Alexa, get me a blanket!” 
  • Another big trend you’ll see on the rise is smart kitchens. With almost every appliance having a smart version at this point, it’s only going to become more and more normal to see smart kitchens in action. Refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers and more…can you imagine the convenience?
  • A trend overall will be devices becoming more intuitive across the board. A deterrent to smart technology for some is the difficulty of use or integration into their existing lifestyle. The more we research and test different inventions, the more we find out how to best introduce them to the people who aren’t already immersed in this world.
