Investing in smart home technology: Good idea or not?

The future of technology especially implied to create a smart home predicts that almost everything you touch will be connected. Additionally, we’re not simply referring to video doorbells, music, and lights.

We saw an oven that can Livestream your meal as it’s baking and a mixer with a built-in scale and connected app at this year’s CES technology show, which sets the stage for the tech that will touch our lives in the next days and weeks. 

Smart Home Technology

Your mattress may report how well you slept or how much you tossed and turned and recommend adjustments. And none of us will soon forget the palm-sized puck that Withings wants us to insert into our toilets in order to assess our health from the inside out. Literally.

Until now, there has been an imbalance in smart home devices; many more are gimmicks than must-haves. Do we require a mood-ring disco refrigerator? Cool? Yes. Does it conserve time, cash, sanity, or the environment? Not at all.

There is also a continuous concern regarding customer privacy. Companies of all sizes have in the past been dishonest about the personal information they collect and share from our wired worlds. Why should you trust them now?

Cindy Cohn, executive director of the privacy rights organization Electronic Frontier Foundation, noted during iFixit’s CES Worst In Show presentation that a question everyone should consider when evaluating a new product is whether the company is selling to them or selling them.

As stated previously, the Beko smart refrigerator promises to preserve the freshness of vegetables for 30 days and preserve their nutrient content. It employs a novel technology known as HarvestFresh, which is a three-color light system concealed in the crisper drawer. It emits blue light in the morning, green light at midday, and red light at night to imitate the 24-hour sun cycle.

This is an instance of a smart product that can pay for itself within a year. The most recent numbers indicate that Americans squander about $218 billion annually on food, with a family of four wasting $1,600 annually on produce alone. 

In April, 20 different Beko refrigerator models will be released with this feature. The price begins at $1,300.

If you have previously used portable generators, you will realize why this one is unique. There are no vapors. In comparison to the gas-guzzling generators of the past, it is whisper-quiet. It may be used indoors to power lights, Wi-Fi, medical equipment, and the majority of home appliances. Even your refrigerator can be powered for 35 hours on a single charge.

It’s a fascinating next-generation, self-sustaining energy source that can be recharged with solar panels. Currently available and priced at $3,600 for the generator and two solar panels.

In addition, the company displayed an eight-foot-tall extensible pergola composed of telescoping solar panels that capture solar energy for later use. Energy-independent houses are an increasing objective; this company is one to watch as it becomes a reality.
