Climate change is a growing problem that requires immediate and aggressive solution. Using smart home automation technology, millions of homes around the world can contribute to bringing about positive environmental change.
Many innovative smart home products are designed to educate homeowners about their energy usage. This allows them to make well-informed decisions and make certain adjustments to make their homes more energy efficient. For example, a smart home device called Verv uses artificial intelligence to notify users as to which of their appliances are producing a large carbon footprint and suggest more eco-friendly alternatives.
Many smart home devices can also help consumers make well-informed decisions when buying new appliances. With TVs for examples, LED screens cut down energy leakage substantially when compared to old plasmas. By purchasing a device with a low energy cost, the new model will be able to pay for itself in just a couple of years.
Large corporations can also use technology to make their buildings more environment friendly. Using smart sensors, smart buildings are able to automatically adjust temperature depending on the needs of tenants or employees.
