The devices recognize the number of people in the space and adjust the temperature, lights and ventilation accordingly. Automation is commonplace in offices. The systems are energy efficient and safe when everything can be monitored closely. Significant savings could also be made in the housing costs of homes if, for example, the temperature were lowered when the residents are at work. Estimates that different security systems will become common in homes first. Many people have alarm devices that send information and images that can be viewed, for example, from their own mobile phone.
The mobile phone plays a key role in many other home technology solutions. Life becomes easier when you can click on the cabin’s air heat pump already during the car journey or check with your mobile phone that the home door was not left unlocked. At its best, technology makes living comfortable and easy. When it’s dark outside, the artificial intelligence knows how to let in the right amount of light and adjust the color tone of the light to be different in the morning than in the evening. It helps to survive, for example, during the darkest time of the year.
About one in five owns a home smart device, according to a study published by a-lehti at the beginning of the year. About 40 percent could consider purchasing them. In addition to safety-related technology, respondents to the survey are interested in intelligent heating and locking. Smart homes and smart devices are of most interest to people living in single-family houses, who use them to seek security, savings and energy efficiency for their housing expenses. Apartment dwellers, on the other hand, are inspired by ecology.
Younger people have a more positive attitude towards smart technology than older people. The older the respondent, the more emphasis was placed on the unnecessaryness of devices and the concern about data security. A large number of those who purchased devices were middle-aged men. We are careful about the home. Few would buy a car whose doors open by pushing the key into the lock. However, we rely on the traditional key at the door of the home, although remote-controlled or code-operated locks are available.
We don’t always act logically. We control the television with a remote control, but we get up to adjust the curtains and lights in each room separately. Believes that new technology will come into our homes, whether we like it or not. When the old television breaks down, we take home a smart device that works online, because there are no other types of televisions available. The same is happening little by little with other devices. That is, a home where, despite the presence of technology, genuine and durable materials are valued and old ones are renovated. Instead of mass production, we aim for products designed just for me, made from materials that come from nearby.
