The Real Life Benefits of Home Automation
Have been experimenting with the sample projects on LifeStyleGadgets and made some interesting discoveries.
Yes, turning things on/off with a phone does on the surface seem trivial, but the overall impact of these devices has come to grow on me.
Lights I never remember to use, now turn on/off at the appropriate time improving ambience. The Robotic floor cleaner sweeps and vacuums when I am away. I can enable/disable devices remotely or with voice commands.
Overall I have bragging rights I guess, but now the novelty has worn off I really thing I am beginning to understand why its the way of the future.
