Technology is being used in homes like never before giving its residents control
over all electronic devices at the click of a button!
Smart home technology is a way for ordinary electronics and appliances to communicate
with each other, consumers and even manufacturers.
Many of today’s products are becoming “smart.” Kitchen refrigerators, microwaves
and stoves are utilising this technology. Even washers and dryers have the technology
today to be more automated to suit people’s needs.
Electric razors, toilets and showers will have some sort of automation built in.
LG has developed the Internet refrigerator that allows for users to communicate
with it via the Internet, cell phone and PDA. The refrigerator is able to download
recipes and then display them on its LCD screen and also takes an automatic inventory
of items inside, alerting the consumer to what is there, how long it has been there,
and when an item is running low! Microwaves can communicate with smart refrigerators
and suggest recipes based on what items are in the refrigerator.
