In recent years, homeowners have actively begun to introduce smart home technologies in order to improve their quality of life. IoT devices and technologies perform various tasks and automated procedures, allowing you to save time, money and energy. Major technology companies such as Apple, Google and Amazon have promoted the introduction of smart home technologies — from digital voice assistants to smart thermostats.
However, the interconnected devices of a smart home are only the tip of the iceberg. Various industries have integrated artificial intelligence into their operations, and it is likely to be increasingly common in this industry. Smart home devices based on artificial intelligence will be able to interact and communicate with each other, which allows them to study human habits. The collected data will make it possible to predict user behavior and even develop situational awareness.
AI takes standard smart home technology to a new level. AI can transform raw data from interconnected devices into a behavior model. In other words, it is able to automate tasks depending on the preferences of the homeowner. The combination of artificial intelligence and smart home technologies will create optimal living conditions, automate tasks and even make decisions.
A household robot sorts dishes, picks up and moves various objects and even pours a glass of water. An artificial intelligence-enabled refrigerator tracks available food ingredients and helps you decide what to cook based on dietary restrictions and favorite recipes. An oven with artificial intelligence and computer vision controls the cooking process and monitors when the food reaches the desired temperature.
On the other hand, a serious problem for AI developers and potential users of smart home technologies with artificial intelligence is the growing security threats that are likely to appear in the industry. Wireless devices tend to be more vulnerable to cybersecurity threats or potential attacks.
It will be important for manufacturers and experts in the field of artificial intelligence to find ways to protect smart home devices based on artificial intelligence from cybersecurity threats. Ensuring the safety of customers when using these devices is crucial — without trust, consumers may be cautious or hesitant to apply advanced technologies. Establishing trust will be essential to increase sales of smart home technologies with artificial intelligence and generate revenue for innovative companies.
