Smart home automation is expected to soar high this 2018. This year promises even more bolder, innovative products and solutions designed to help us maximise our time, become more productive and make our lives easier in general.
Below are the biggest predictions on what we can expect in smart home and security space this year.
· A longer list of cord-cutting solutions – More and more companies are joining the bandwagon and offering cord-cutting solutions like Netflix, Hulu and HBO Now. This growing competition will likely result in more choices and more affordable subscriptions.
· Apple HomePod will give Amazon Alexa some serious competition – Many were disappointed when Apple decided to delay the announcement of its HomePod in November. Many experts believe that the delay may be due to Apple’s commitment to making sure that HomePod’s Siri functionality performs well and better than its rivals.
· Authentic wireless charging – Everybody is so excited about this and this technology is more likely to become available this year. This means that we will finally see wireless charging with non-inductive solutions that do not require physical contact with a power source and a device.
· Artificial intelligence and machine learning will start to really pay off in the home and security space – 2018 promises solutions that feature powerful machine learning algorithms that can make the home really smart.
