ALL ABOUT THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE

The problem with smart home technology is that
if individual appliances, fixtures, lighting and temperature systems are all accessed with different
apps and are time-consuming to use, the technology wastes time instead of saving it. Alternatively,
smart home technology needs to work as an allinclusive system accessible from one platform for
the most seamless, easy-to-use experience.
"It is important to bring all these devices
into a central collection point," said Bill Strang,
president of corporate strategy and eCommerce, TOTO. "All of these devices are like the
trombones,trumpets and bassoons in the band,
but no one is playing together. We need an organized orchestration for optimal results."
Whole-home smart systems are growing in
popularity, and many systems partner with smart
devices to include them under their umbrella of
control. That way, a homeowner can manipulate
their entire home from one platform - a practice
that's coming into wider use. The next step then
for the connected smart home is to use AI to better
learn the homeowners and provide a more personalized experience without any additional user effort.
"Information such as the weather could enable
the contextually aware home to adjust heating,
cooling, lighting shading and more, improving
the user experience and reducing the need for preprogrammed scenes, mobile control or even voice
control," said Mitchell Klein, executive director,
Z-Wave Alliance."AI will truly redefine the smart
home user experience."
In theory, AI in the future could detect who
entered the home and automatically change
the temperature and lighting based on that individual's preferences. It could detect when an
oven is turned on and turn up the illumination in
the kitchen for optimal lighting for cooking, or it
could automatically start the coffee maker as soon

as the shower is turned on. These streamlined processes will not only make
day-to-day life easier but also healthier.
"As homeowners continue their journey on the smart home path, they are
migrating from do-it-yourself devices to a custom, integrated smart home
experience," said Stephenson. "Rather than an addition to a home, smart
technology is becoming a foundation for it."
