Information Applicances - Smarter Than We Think

In home automation, one's toaster, television, and coffee pot are no longer simply household appliances, they become information appliances capable of processing data and making decisions. Even today's standard home appliances contain some sophisticated electronics, a fact that surprises many people. Perhaps the only missing ingredient in unlocking the true power of these devices is networking:

"The average middle-class American household already has around 40 microprocessors, in cell phones, microwave ovens, self-focusing cameras, and the like. Furthermore, many of these microprocessors are astonishingly powerful. For example, the latest game consoles have more processing power than the supercomputers of a decade ago.
However, this power is hidden from the users, who see only a simple interface designed to provide just the basic functionality the device is designed for. ... What is still lacking is the pervasive communication system that will link them together."
"The Visible Problems of the Invisible Computer" (1999)

Despite the lack of standard networking, early examples of practical automation are beginning to appear in homes in large numbers. Wealthy individuals like Bill Gates have enjoyed full-featured home automation for years, but the cost of the individual gadgets, at least, are gradually dropping into the reach of mainstream consumers

The life of the Jetsons is no longer a futuristic fantasy. The smart house, bristling with state of the art technology, is very much here and now. Levels of convenience, security and enjoyment you thought were merely a dream in the distance are very much a reality.

Comfort, security and peace of mind. These are all goals we set out to achieve when developing the technology to move your home out of the past and into the future.

Imagine a hi-fi system that breathes beautiful music throughout the rooms of your house. Or a home cinema system completely integrated into your favourite room. Or phones, security systems, irrigation systems and air conditioning systems controlled through a simple keypad.

Consider the following scenarios:

A person rings your doorbell. Sitting in the study, your television immediately displays the image from the security camera mounted over the door. Seeing it is your neighbour, you remotely open the door.

On your way home from work and ready to begin a relaxing evening, you select "Entertainment" from the touchpad. Immediately, the lights dim, the shades close and the piano begins playing in concert with the CD player. A few minutes later, you walk in the door to the perfect atmosphere.

Scenes from the future? No - this is the world of Smart Home Ideas for today's life style.
