Technology just gets cooler and cooler! While the “wow factor” increases, so does the practicality of a lot of new gadgets. As we look to the future, one thing is for certain: we’re going to see many more smart gadgets out there to help automate our lives and make everything just a little bit easier. Let’s take a look at some cool gadgets and trends that we can expect to really blow up in 2015.
Piecemeal Home Automation
There are quite a few systems already out there, and they’re quickly getting lots of buzz. Systems like WEMO
™ and Iris
™ are designed to supply an array of smart home automation products that all work under one smart system
. While you can opt into a starter kit at set prices, you can also build your own digital army.
EyeLock Myris ™
The EyeLock Myris is one cool gadget. Using new-age, high-tech software to capture images of your eye, the EyeLock Myris
recognizes your eye—and your eye alone—and grants you access to a variety of different personal applications. Simply plug it in, register your eye, and then build your suite of applications that can only be accessed with your eye. This means that you can put all of your private apps and websites in one space, so that you’re the only one who can see them. This makes banking, social media, and email even more private, so you don’t have to worry about anyone hacking their way into your world. Don’t think this applies to home automation? You can hook this up to your home system to enable a more secure and private home. The future, in which your eye literally opens everything, is finally here.
Small Home Security Systems
Before now, it’s always been a challenge to make a small home or apartment secure. In most apartments, getting a full home security system is essentially impossible and sometimes impractical. With cool new technology and an increasing array of home security options, it’s becoming easier to get a small home or apartment hooked up with a nice layer of security. There are cool systems, like Canary
™, that allow you to keep your eye on your kingdom when you’re away from home, relaxing on the couch, or even tucked in bed.
Of course, that kind of security is all self-monitored. If you’re looking to have a home security company keep an eye out for you professionally, you should seek a trusted home security brand and ask them how they can practically outfit your small home to give you the best security.
The future of home automation looks bright, and the immediate future is one that we can all get excited for in 2015. What home automation gadgets do you hope to see in the coming year?
