IoT for Homes: Top IoT Applications in Smart Home and Smart City

What Are Applications of IoT in Smart Home and Smart City?

IoT technology lies at the core of smart homes. New technologies such as artificial intelligence, fingerprint reading, and voice or facial recognition are serving the comfort of the occupants of the house. The devices are interconnected, and their control is centralized. 

In addition, for all this equipment to function optimally, the smart home as a building must be:

  • connected to communication networks;

  • designed so that data can flow within the building;

  • equipped with a data protection system.

IoT Applications in Smart Home and City

Opting for a smart home has many advantages, among which we can mention:

Centralization and remote control. Whether on Android or iOS, mobile applications offer you interfaces that allow you to manage your smart home wherever you are.

  • Ease of use: An intelligent home ensures that you have the indoor temperature and air quality that you want. Likewise, you can very quickly launch your favorite playlist or program your oven to make sure your meal doesn't burn out;

  • Energy savings: On average, a smart home allows you to save up to 30% on your energy bill (gas and electricity) by making a low-consumption building;

  • Security: Even from a distance, you can check that the doors and windows are correctly locked and remedy them if necessary. You may also be notified of an intrusion if your smart home has an alarm system.

These advantages explain the enthusiasm of owners for intelligent homes. The players in the artificial intelligence market have understood this well and are offering increasingly effective solutions. They can thus provide you with actions according to your tastes or habits.

However, if you are installing connected objects from different manufacturers, consider checking the compatibility of the systems.
