What home automation innovations can we expect for 2021?
With more time spent at home than ever before in 2020, it’s no surprise to see that home tech experts have been beavering away in the background. Giving us something to look forward to in 2021, said experts have been making huge inroads with home automation.
From home security to larger TV screens than ever before, there’s even more of an incentive to stay inside. Here’s a look at what’s to come in 2021.
Drones meet home security
Staying indoors may have made us reassess our needs for home security in 2020, and tech developers are responding to that. Expect to see landmark advancements in surveillance hardware, such as this autonomous flying indoor security camera. Drones may have started out as a novelty item, but now they’re a staple of home security!
Likewise, one tech guru is predicting that Apple will make their first foray into home security in 2021. With 2K cameras coming to the fore, Apple may use their next-level expertise in razor-sharp imagery to produce their own home security systems. Watch this space.
A new chapter for home cinema
In a bid to make cinema-style viewing more accessible to all homeowners, Samsung has developed a MicroLed TV – coming in at an eye-watering 110 inches. Dubbed ‘The Wall’, this non-intrusive system is allegedly simple to install and will take up entire wall spaces. It will use “micrometre-sized LED lights to eliminate the backlight and colour filters used in conventional displays”, which will allow it to produce light and colour from its own pixel structures.
If you want to get the best from it, though, we’d suggest booking in a home technology installer – particularly if you want accompanying unrivalled sound quality.
Enter the ‘Internet of Behaviours’
You’ve heard of the Internet of Things, but have you heard of the Internet of Behaviours? This essentially means our home devices will have more of a data-led focus in 2021, meaning that they can read our behavioural patterns to better serve us.
For example, if they notice that we listen to a particular radio station at a certain time of the morning, or put on a particular channel, they may offer to automate this as a ‘morning’ setting. Similarly, wearable tech like fitness bands may target ads in response to our behaviours, thus making things more convenient.
