What Is Smart Home Technology?

What if all the devices in your life could connect to the internet? Not just computers and smartphones, but everything: clocks, speakers, lights, door bells, cameras, windows, window blinds, hot water heaters, appliances, cooking utensils, you name it. And what if those devices could all communicate, send you information, and take your commands? It's not science fiction; it's the Internet of Things (IoT), and it's a key component of home automation and smart homes.

Smart Home Hubs and Controllers

Smart devices are electronic devices equipped with wireless protocols that allow them to be controlled and activated by voice command, or more commonly, through mobile app technology that can be accessed through a smartphone or tablet.

Smart Home Surveillance Cameras

Wouldn't it be great to know what's happening at home, anytime, from anywhere? It's easy to do with a smart video camera. Just take out your phone, open your app, and you have an instant view of activity inside or outside your home.

Smart Locks and Home Security Systems

While lock technology has always evolved, only recently did it become smart enough to ditch those keys altogether. Thanks to smart home security technology, we can now enjoy keyless convenience with better awareness and control of who enters our homes.

Smart Heating and Cooling

Smart temperature-control devices — such as thermostats that learn and adjust to pre-programmed temperatures — are poised to increase comfort and save energy in homes.

Smart Lighting

When we talk about a smart light bulb, we’re referring to an internet-capable LED light bulb that allows lighting to be customized, scheduled and controlled remotely using a smart phone, tablet, or smart home automation system via an app. The app enables you to change the brightness of the bulbs, and if the bulbs have colored LEDs you can change their colors, too.

Manage your music in the playlist mode

You’ve been there before; you’re midway through your morning jog when a song you’re not that crazy about comes on the playlist. You stop running, take your phone out of your pocket, and skip the track. When you start running again, you’re slightly irked about the delay. With the ArcX, you can avoid that. This sports wearable’s Playlist mode lets you use the joystick to control your music just as you would on your phone. Simply toggle up and down to lower or increase the volume. And to skip tracks, move the joystick to the left or right.

Take calls with this fitness ring’s call modes

If you’re in the middle of a heart-pumping rowing session in the water, the last thing you want to do is stop your momentum by reaching for your phone to take a call. With ArcX, you don’t have to. In the call modes, an incoming call overrides any other mode. All you have to do is press on the joystick’s center to accept it. When the call ends, the ArcX returns to the mode you were using.

Track your time in stopwatch mode

Want to see how fast your laps around the track are? This sports wearable’s Stopwatch mode lets you time yourself. You can use it to take your split and lap time just by using your index finger to toggle and briefly hold the joystick. And don’t worry, you’ll still be able to listen and control your music while the stopwatch function is active.

Get emergency help with the SOS function

If you get into trouble while you’re out, you can trigger the SOS call function mode when you press and hold the center button for five seconds. Once you do this, the function automatically calls an emergency services number in your region. It also sends an SMS that requests emergency help along with a link to your current location. You can also designate a friend or family member as an SOS contact. So it’s a function that helps you breathe a little easier, especially if you’re into solo hikes in the great outdoors.
