Smart Homes Keep Trending Up
Our homes, to our amazement, keep getting smarter.
At Cloud9 Integrated Systems, we understand that your home is not just a box with four walls; it’s an experience. 2023 has been an exciting year for smart home progress and products. Let’s explore the cutting-edge advancements that shaped the past year of smart home trends.
Embracing the Internet of Things (IoT)
While Internet of Things (IoT) is not an idea new in 2023, the advances in its sphere take center stage. It’s more than just a buzzword; it’s a transformative force that’s making our homes more intelligent and responsive. Imagine a seamlessly connected ecosystem where your thermostat talks to your lighting system, and your security cameras sync with your smart locks.
IoT enables devices to communicate, creating a cohesive network that enhances efficiency and convenience. At Cloud9 Integrated Systems, we specialize in integrating IoT solutions tailored to your unique needs, ensuring that your home operates within a unified ecosystem.
The Game-Changer: Matter Integration
Within the broader realm of IoT, in 2023, Matter is the game-changer in the landscape of smart home trends.
Matter, formerly known as Project Connected Home over IP (Project CHIP), addresses a critical challenge faced by users and manufacturers in smart home ecosystems – interoperability.
According to the Connectivity Standard Alliance (CSA), the nonprofit that oversees Matter development, “It’s a common language for today’s smart devices that lets them talk to each other, enabling simple, yet powerful experiences for consumers.”
Matter is a connectivity standard that unifies smart home devices, ensuring they work seamlessly together regardless of the brand. This means increased compatibility and a more cohesive smart home experience.
Automate Everything with IFTTT
If This Then That (IFTTT) is the secret sauce that adds an extra layer of intelligence to your smart home. IFTTT allows you to create custom automations, connecting different devices and platforms to work in harmony based on specific triggers. Want your lights to dim automatically when you start a movie? IFTTT makes it possible.
Offering both free and paid memberships, IFTTT enables users to create their own applets: pathways for certain actions that trigger automatically in response to other actions.
Cloud9 Integrated Systems empowers you to automate your home according to your lifestyle. From waking up to a customized morning routine to ensuring your home is secure when you leave, IFTTT brings personalization to a whole new level.
Voice Your Commands with Smart Voice Assistants
It’s never been easier to look up a recipe, check the game scores, or text a friend with voice commands. Voice Assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant have become integral parts of modern homes, allowing you to control everything from lights and thermostats to smart refrigerators and deadbolts.
Cloud9 Integrated Systems ensures a seamless integration of Smart Voice Assistants into your home, giving you the power to control your environment effortlessly. Whether you’re cooking in the kitchen or relaxing in the living room, your voice is all you need to command your smart home.
