2023 – The Year of Home Automation Innovations?
As we enter the new year, it’s exciting to think about the innovations that are coming for the every day smart home. Since starting our company in 2021, we have seen a surge in the popularity of smart home technology in Australia as we slowly catch up to the rest of the world. We look forward to seeing this trend will continue well into 2023 and beyond as we continue to adopt more home automation technology to improve our energy efficiency and change the way we control our homes.
So, what do we think will be the biggest changes to home automation in 2023? Here are a few of our top predictions for the coming year and beyond!
Voice Control Will Become Seamless and Simple
Voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant have already made it convenient to control your smart home devices through voice commands. In 2023, we expect to see a further expansion of devices that are compatible with voice commands and prompts, making it more simple to control your smart home products.
Something we are personally excited for is the amazing benefits this will have for those living with a disability. Part of what we enjoy most is the opportunity we have to work with participants of the NDIS to make the day-to-day lives of those with disabilities easier.
Smart Home Products Will Continue to Improve Their Privacy and Security
As the number of smart home devices on the market continues to increase, it’s important to consider the products you are using, especially in terms of data security. We expect to see continued improvements to privacy and security in the to the already secure smart security & home automation space including two-factor authentication and further data encryption to protect against cyber security threats.
At Smarter Homes Australia, we take data privacy and cyber security very seriously. As part of our in-house user testing, we are constantly keeping up to date with the security protocols implemented in our product lines use to ensure your data is kept private and secure.
Home Automation Will Become More Personalised
Our entire product line of Smart home products can be tailored to suit your specific needs. Setting up things like personalised automations to read you specific news each morning, intelligent lighting automations that can be controlled by voice commands and complete keyless entry to your home using individualised and unique pins is already accessible for the general population. In 2023, we expect to see an increase in personalised automations which will, allow you to further customise your home or business to suit your requirements.
The entire Smarter Homes Australia team always keeps up to date with new products that enter the market. We always put the products through rigorous user-testing before providing them as an option to ensure you’re getting the best user experience. And can provide follow up support to help you adapt to your upgraded smart home.
There will be More Smart Devices and Appliances
Over the next 5-10 years we believe that most of the technology in you home will be controllable using smart home technology. In 2023, we expect to see a larger range of appliances and devices to come on the market that will be compatible and easily integrated with current home automation systems. The newer products we are expecting to see include things like washing machines, dryers, kettles, ovens and much more. This will rapidly increase with the release of matter, which we will cover in a standalone blog post! – Stay Tuned
As we continue to grow as a company, we will be expanding further into the ‘smart appliances’ space. We expect to integrate this in 2023 so keep a look out as we make announcements on the product page of our website and on our Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
Energy Efficiency Will Continue to be a Top Priority
Energy efficiency is one of our top priorities when focusing on smart home products. Simple home automations for smart cooling, heating and lighting can save up to 40% on your electricity bill quickly covering the price of installation, and some Australians facing 160%-280% increases in power bills as wholesale electricity prices soar.
We are extremely happy to see energy efficiency as a long-term trend and over 2023 we expect to see continued improvements in this space with current smart security & home automation products on the market, as well as any new releases. As a company, we strongly believe that if we all focus on our individual energy consumption whether it be smart home products, or simply turning a light off, then we can make a huge overall impact.
It’s an exciting time to be involved in the space of home automation. With so many advancements on the horizon such as matter, easy to use interfaces and other innovative products, who knows what the future will bring. One thing we’re sure of is that home automation is here to stay and it’s only going to get better!
