Advances in technologies have resulted in many smart home features that many homeowners already enjoy today. These smart home features include voice-activated light switches, automatic door or window looks on a security system for the home, video cameras that can be remotely viewed, robotic household aids like the robotic floor vacuum that travels the home sweeping up dirt and debris along the way and more.

Many ask what will Smart Home Automation technologies look like 10 years down the road.

Expect More AI Technologies That Learn Your Routines & Adjust Accordingly

One of the exciting things being talked about in smart home technologies and automation is taking advantage of AI, or artificial intelligence that computerized programs can be taught.

An example would be forgetting to record a much anticipated television show or sporting event but having smart features imbedded into this recording program that has learned your usual routine and then records the program anyway.

This technology is already here, and software developers of smart home features are just ironing out the process.

For instance, many larger healthcare and research institutes already have sophisticated platforms that have been fed information by code with the expectation that the computer will continue to “learn” and adjust their responses later.

Futuristic Smart Homes Will Include Health-Related Analyzing/Screening Functions

Some of these ideas have already been implemented for use with individuals that have certain disabilities. The smart homes in the near future will also include common medical tests and screening functions that can monitor blood glucose readings automatically, screen urine for toxins or drugs, expansion of vital sign monitoring and calling in prescription refills.

These features can help reimagine how we stay healthy that falls in line with preventative health that the medical community is embracing more and more every day.

Sensors that pick up a higher fever could alert your smart watch or smartphone or even contact an outside party rather like a built-in alert system similar to devices seniors and those with disabilities already use.

Advanced Robotic Assistant Helper Units Will Become Commonplace in the Future

Expect to see more advanced robotic systems that can be of help in the kitchen by chopping or slicing foods automatically. Imagine driving home while your home-automated system adjusts to your preferred temperature turns on the oven and has your favorite musical playlist already playing when you enter your door.

Smart homes will continue to evolve creating a futuristic world where these technologies can help humans lead better lives.
